    Maybe there are two mikes,one that died and the other one is the older brother and there dad is the one who is supposedly the reason why Mike is dead, I know that his older brother/Mike2 was the one who made him hug freedbear but he probably did it to help micheal over come his fear of freedbear but that changed and micheal died and mike2 decides to take his younger brothers name so his dad might not find out that micheal is dead because there dad William is not allowed to go into Freddy fazbears 2 so that's why I think there are two mikes.

    I was watching somebody play the teaser ultimate custom night, and it showed all the characters and challenges that would be on it, while also saying that there was a “Nightmares Attack” challenge, and when you clicked on it, it would show the scrap baby as a nightmare

    More puzzle pieces fit than you think... Remember way back in FNAF 2? The toy animatronics were designed with FACIAL RECOGNITION that were thought not to work properly, but what if they did?? They were designed to identify Purple Guy. You as Mike (the player) posing as someone else, looks just like dear 'ol dad, Purple Guy, & they attacked you! A major hint was given way back then & we didn't connect the dots! What else are we missing??

    Hey matpat I think I know why Susie had the same font as the night introductions in the 4th game because it is Susie the girl from the fruity maze which makes a connection to purple guy in that game which the other game that had purple guy was midnight motorist so the font could have been to confirm the house in midnight motorist was the fnaf 4 house it seems like a long shot but like you said Scott tries to tie up loose ends this could have been a last resort if we didn’t find that out I may be wrong but hey thought I would say it

    What if the references to the baby isnt mine is refering to the older brother, and that leaves you with what happened with the younger child, aka crying child? He is a robotic clone of william, a perfect kid?
    That would explain william's frustrations with crying child.
    He expected the kid to be just like him, but he is slightly different
    Will's relationship to the older brother is almost non existent. Maybe that is what split mr and ms afton, and he got stuck with the child. That is why will made mike, cause he wanted a child of his own, but found him self single. The references of do you remember them might be from after a memory wipe of mike by william after the bite
    The put you back together might reference putting him back to what will might think of as his "perfect" form
    Enard entered mike to restored his memory, and when enard left, that is why he survived and remembered he is a robot. The whole thing after fnaf 3 where the fire might be mike doing will's dirty work. He sound happy in that recording, and the whole "im coming to find you" might be mike going for more orders.

    I think you got the name thing wrong. To me, when the entity in the fnaf logbook asks "do you remember your name?", its asking Michael (Mike) if he remembers his original name after living under several aliases.

    Hey Matt I had a thinking What if "Jr.'s" is that "Sister location" that the phone guy was talking about in fnaf 3 with the simultaneous springlock failures? I mean wouldn't it make a lot of sense? It would explain the random "sister location" from that game and makes fnaf 3 more sense.

    I hope I'm not too late for this to be seen, but I may as well make an effort.
    So, I was in class, thinking about FNAF, like always. I was having trouble focusing, when I started to think about Baby saying "you won't die". Then things kinda clicked in my head.
    Have you ever heard the Greek myth of Cronus being told his son would, one day, overthrow him? The one where he proceeded to eat all his children in fear of that happening?
    What if, somehow, William was told that Michael would, one day, overthrow (kill) him? Obviously he'd want to prevent it. So, with that, I'll continue.
    We never really got a solid explanation for why the animatronics were attacking Michael in the first place (assuming we play as him in every game). There was the "he looks like his father" but that was in SL, supposedly early in the timeline. I doubt William looks like a rotting corpse.
    What if the attacks were WIlliam's doing? What if he programmed them to attack Michael, because he understood that his son would eventually get revenge for all the lives taken by him?
    Although it's a stretch, I do kind of believe it. It would also explain the cameras from SL, watching the FNAF4 house. It would explain Michael (if he is, in fact, the crying child) being locked in his room all the time. William would probably be paranoid, and would want to keep Michael, even if he was a tiny child, from trying anything on him.
    So yeah. I'm sorry if you understood 0% of what I said up there, I've never been good at explaining things.
    (I've been working on this little theory for a while, and another thing clicked as I was writing this. Why would Michael be so content to just die at the end of FNAF6? Other than him being a robot, I saw someone saying it was because he had, in a way, fulfilled his purpose. He had no more to live for. I believe that, but I also don't. Again, it's a stretch, but what if Michael was born only to stop his father and get revenge? That would also explain how he didn't die after the bite, and survived after Ennard ditched him. Again, things are clicking in my head, so here we go again. What if Ennard was especially created to kill Michael? We never really see him do much except take over his body. Maybe William created him to extra-kill Michael? Just a thought. Again, super jumbled, I know, Also I've said "again" a lot here. ok thanks for reading.)
    *TLDR because my friend told me this makes no sense: I think William created the animatronics to not only kill kids, but to kill Michael, too. I think he somehow learned that Michael would kill him eventually, and did everything he could to prevent that. Also maybe Ennard was created only to "extra-kill" Mike. And maybe the reason he survived both the bite and Ennard was because he was "supposed" to kill William. Hopefully that made more sense. *

    Ok, so this might sound weird and crazy, but I think will help somewhat.
    This is how I think Michal rebirth might have happened. The bear tells you I will put you back together, so of course you know he will bring you back to life. The question is how. Don't you remember that the crying child has an older brother? The bear could have simply swapped both of your souls to were Michal takes the place of his brother, and his brother takes the place as Michal. (so technically a body switch, to were Michal's brother ends up dead because he is in the body of Michal, and Michal lives because he is in the body of his brother) This would make the older brother Golden Freddy.
    You might be asking yourself, how can this be true? Well lets face the facts. If this wasn't true then the older brother served no purpose other then killing his brother and scaring the living hell out of him. What other use does he have. And BECAUSE Michal's brother torments him, you would think he would want some kind of revenge on him, and that answer is yes. The bear ends up switching Michal's and his Brother's bodies, killing Michal's brother, getting the revenge Michal wanted. His brother would finally get a taste of his own medicine, and the karma he deserved for killing and tormenting Michal. Even if it caused him death. This is how Michal was "Put together again".
    Michal can now start planning on getting revenge on his father for locking him up in his room, and for killing those children and trapping their souls in animations. Its brutal, yes, but would you let someone as horrible as William kill more children?
    This was just a theory, (a GAME theory *cough cough* sorry *cough cough*) but hopefully this will help.
    Side note: I do not know how the swapping would work, but hey, if robots could come alive with a human soul, then there could be body swaps.

    Idiots. The orange guy is William Afton’s father, and William is the one always escaping to that other place to build his animatronics because if you follow the footsteps it leads to a pile of stuff which can be parts to animatronics. The person at the tv is the mother too. Very broad but makes more sense than this bullshit. Jr’s is where orange guy goes to drink at a bar and midnight motorist is where he drives back home drunk at 200 mph. Makes more sense ? Of course

    Remember how you said there were elephants in the room one of the elephants stuck out to me if the crying child is Michael how is he also golden Freddy as shown in happiest day and fnaf 4. I began to think about it and what if he’s both he’s not truly all Michael but not fully golden Freddy allow me to explain. In the give gifts give life mini game from fnaf 2 we never give golden Freddy a gift or life meaning that most likely something has already happened outside of the puppets control like the remnant soul juice mixed with whatever the puppet uses to give life is what makes a dead child able to possess an animatronic and I think that that’s what happened William Michael Afton springtrap schmeikenheimer (reference from a previous video) had sucked the remnant out of Michael already meaning the puppet has very little effectiveness of giving life which would explain golden Freddy’s ghostly behavior. And the reason Michael’s normal body isn’t ghostly like golden Freddy is because all it takes for a human body to be living is just remnant due to previous life in the body unlike the suits that are inanimate objects that had no life previously in it making the remnant need a little push from the puppet making golden Freddy only having that push and not the remnant it needs making it only half alive in the suit and technically half but it’s easier in his human body. But hey that’s just a theory a GAME THEORY thanks for reading.

    What if he didn't die I know that logic makes no sense since we heard a Flatline at the end of the game but maybe Scott put that maybe just to mess with people maybe he didn't die I know you probably won't see this matpat but if you do see this thank you for reading

  • TheSCMiners
    TheSCMiners 9 hours ago

    Wait a minute. Didn't we say in an early theory that the crying child WAS Golden Freddy? I know that that probably isn't actually the case, but is it possible that we've met "Cassidy" before as an unnamed avatar? Maybe it isn't the crying child but is actually his big brother. This would make him a much more prominent character, as he probably should be. He has appeared in two games now (one of which seems unnecessary), which makes it seem like he should be a bigger deal. It would also make Golden Freddy's relationship with Mike in the logbook make more sense: it's his brother giving him the advice to try to help him. It's a long shot, and I have no clue if it actually makes any sense (FNAF4 kinda freaks me out), but it seems to make logical sense.

    and you can add all of the page numbers where you found the my name equals number error add them together and use the double numbers like 10 11 and 8 11 and you can use those as 3 digit numbers and you can use these instead of a vigenere cipher and go back to 123 ABC

    okay so about mike being the bite victim just think of this for one second. okay? forget about the logic. what if he did not die? what if mike just did not die. I mean the only LOGICAL way for mike to be in sister location is if he did NOT die so that means that he was in the hospital but he was probably unconscious so he DREAMED about the nightmares and that nightmare Fred bear does represent death. so when you survive the night without nightmare jump scaring you basically just avoided the face of death which is Scott Cawthon's way of saying "he did not die" and when the plush says some things are best left forgotten maybe he is saying we should FORGET about the bite and just move on into the story. now all of this is MY theory there is nobody (at least I think nobody) who have talked about this I came up with this so I am just saying please do not hate on it. because it might not be true but this is what I think.
