it also makes sense with Golden freddy attacking Michael, since he looks like william, Cassidy sees him as that, and with his brother wanting to find him, cassidy sees him and wants to attack

Wait, wait I have a theory So you must've heard about the Security Breach hype going on especially about the trailer right? Well if you watched the trailer you hear someone named Georgie running away from Vanny, now what if, WHAT IF Georgie was....the crying child! That's a loose connection but what if the crying child is still alive- No that just seems like a bad theory I am sorry...

I know you probably won’t see this matpat, but i have something that might be important to the ballora story. In help wanted, the same thing happens with Glitchtrap when you collect the cassette tapes. We know that once all have been completed you are allowed to enter the final mini game, and in the end are captured and taken over by glitchtrap. This connection is eerily similar to what happens in the book story. This might be wrong, but i thought it was interesting :) have a lovely day matpat!

Hey MatPat, here's a question for you: What if FNAF4 was to be played first? As in: what if the whole game series is supposed to be played this way *look below* FNAF 4, 1, 2, 3, Sister Location, 1, 5, 6 AND THEN 7

just had a thought. what if the old man consequences Easter egg in UCN (the one where you drown yourself) was of one of the spirits in Golden Freddy moving on to the after life (namely the crying child) and the one who stayed behind to torment William is Cassidy (i don't know i probably sound stupid)
CookieD Prije 13 sati
Theres a random question about fnaf 3 that ive always wanted answered and im super curious about it. Ok so whenever you unlock the happiest day minigame and start walking to the main table with the core 6 spirits, you pass some other tables with a combined 6 other souls sitting there. I really want to know who they are, ive suspected that they were the mediocre melodies but there are a few discrepancies with it, like some of the masks dont line up, and it wouldnt make sense because the mediocre melodies were made of remnant from ennard, ive also heard that they were the glamrock animatronics but that doesnt line up at all. So any ideas?

Ok. But you completely ignored a huge flaw that basically collapses the logbook section. If cassidy is talking to Mike's brother, why would Mike draw a picture of nightmare fredbear? He would have no clue. But since it's a flaw you completely gloss over it.

Dear Mr. Matpat,(THIS IS A LORE RELATED QUESTION) I’m sadly using my school account but I hope you read this comment still and hopefully answer, I have question about the series. For a long time now I think you overlooked a small detail or maybe it has no importance at all that has had my attention from day one when I read it. In the book “THE SILVER EYES” there is a small subplot where Jason finds a strange picture in the restaurant, a child’s drawing and in this small subplot he noticed the picture changed and if you want to look back abit in the book but the more significant part of this subplot is in pages 179-184. Where Jason gets all the drawings and has a vision I think or lives through a memory of one of the dead children and watches Springtrap take Sammy. That moment has always confused me and aggravated me because Jason doesn’t tell anyone about it so it is not fleshed out further and it I have been watching these FNAF videos you make since the start and I have also waited since 2016 to see you point it out or anything so I worry that you missed it or that this one moment that has been stuck in my head was just a useless moment that has no importance. I recommend you at least read the pages I mentioned cause I really want to know your thoughts. And I’m sorry if this is just asking for time you don’t have, I’m sure you have a ton of work to do for the rest of the lore and next vids to look back on such old news and minuscule details like this. I hope this is seen by you so I could maybe get some ease. From: a nerdy fan, Shade(basically my real online persona)

One particular question tho If Willian Afton is the one starting all of this then... Why isn't no one talking about WHY he started the killing spree? I mean... Mat you already deducted that someone in this Universe (The Main owner of Freddy Fazbear's Pizza) hired a particular developer ( The Rogue DV) to HIDE the current reputation of the franchise. If that's the case then...Why above all of the characters ( Henry, Afton, etc) Why is the Owner doing it now and not when this all happened? And for the current stages of FNAF right now is that the owner itself is continuing this franchise even with its current reputation. Correct me if I'm the wrong one here MatPat but... If William is the murderer and Henry is his old friend Even if William was normal and turned evil for some reason...Why didn't Henry tried to stop him right? he did stop him yes...But it was too late WHY so late. Both of them were driven into madness because of the restaurant itself This specific restaurant is the ONE THING that made both of them turn mad at each other Henry being the mad genius to create futuristic animatronic to replace gaps of his sadness and anger of his mistakes and lost William being the person following Henry's ways of creation. We were missing and almost ignored that one missing thing Mat The one that made the Diner itself The Freddy Family Dinner Freddy's Fazbears Pizza And Fazbears Fright If the owner was self-aware about what was happening in his establishment well... Why even bother keeping it open? What is his/her purpose to keep this Franchise in particular up and running? And why HIDE the bad reputation and bad people that have been in the restaurant itself? This is a slice of the question I have for you Mat I wanna ask why is it being continued even based with its current history And with that...Why is the restaurant weirdly looking for more attention

If this is true then that could also mean that old man consequences could also be the second soul in Golden Freddy. Just hear me out, the second soul being more rational is trying to get the vengeful spirit to move on as them bonding with each other while sharing a suit. Thank you for coming to my TED Talk 😘

I actually had the theory that two souls possessed Golden Freddy long before it was confirmed. As he had no endoskeleton, in the first game, how was he moving around? Teleportation. How? Multiple souls would be needed for that kind of energy

I just realised... you can’t die from overheating in UCN because you are playing as William Afton... he always comes back, no matter how many times he burns.

Hey matpat! I just realized something! So you know the silver eyes book? Well theres a graphic novel. Cool right? So i have that graphic novel. Nothin special. BUT in the beginning of the book, a girl named Charlie goes to her fathers old house. She goes to her room and she has 3 toys, Theodore the bonnie plush that used to have the ability to talk and strangely said "l...ove...Y... Lie.." that can probably be made out to "Love You, Charlie" or there might be possiblity of Theodore saying something different but only a possibility so it might not be different, Stanly, a spooky looking unicorn, and one special little 'doll' that holds a tray of snacks and comes out a closet, Ella. But its strange that she has three closest one bigger than the other, though they never get mentioned, Though! About Ella, We now know that Charlie has the Ella doll that scientist wanted! Though these toys are only mentioned in the beginning of the story, But thats just a THEORY, a GAME THEORY!!

Theory: There’s this song that kinda relates to afton but it doesn’t ‘can you tell me who i am can you tell where I go I forgotten how to speak I’ve forgotten if I can if ‘ I thought if this isn’t afton then this is Cassidy and c.c and maybe why their talking through the book is because they can’t talk to each other normally
