Just a reminder to like the video! He puts in a ton of effort for these videos! ❤
6:27 WAIT ARE THESE FROM THE ACTUAL COMICS?!?!?!?!
@Extremetea dude dont use the hard R 😡
Whether the theory ends up being correct or not, I think we can all thank MatPat and his team for coming up with these theories and piecing them together via videos for us!
What are you carrying!?
Hes got the true detective moves
Personally, I don't care if these theories are right or not. They're entertaining regardless.
literally!!! it just makes me think like woooow.... FASCINATING!!!!!!
Having watched the next episode, I love how Fnaf has reached the point where ‘Hiding in an arcade cabinet that can only be reached by finding a hidden, disguised and completely optional door that will only open if you use the camera item to flash a bunch of scattered cardboard cutouts without the game giving you any reason to do so’ qualifies as ‘hiding in plain sight’
@M & Artroom tfx,ftx
You know, even if it's not the actual story, I kinda like this theory. It gives the series a "happier" conclusion since William came back for revenge after UCN, which was supposed to be like his eternal punishment.
She could be what I like to call a ,,metaphor character". We know that Scott like to do that to give cluese on the lore for other characters. She might not actually be Elizabeth, but representing Elizabeth so that we get a closer look at her story.
@E I know....But you do reliese that they will to stuff the same as Scott did and he is still (kinda) relevant? He stillis the creator after all
There’s a new team working on fnaf. Scott retired, and his original game was reworked by said team.
Whether right or wrong, you gotta admit, the gregory is the crying child has a lot of evidence to back it. Tbh its a very reasonable theory
it is, it is, just still questions on when he become geogory, you know?
Its an amazing therory and it fits the lore given so far
@Don't read profile photo ok
Could Mrs Afton be someone in security breach of it could be Elizabeth but I'm not to sure
@Meme Gaming Billiam
I love to see our boy Mattpat trying his hardest to try to make sense of a game left intentionaly with voids in its history
Just realized you said that Gregory going into the charging station was evidence, but it really isn't because the reason you need to is to avoid the Daycare Attendant, and if you choose to stay in the Pizzaplex, then it makes sense still why Gregory would because he is piloting Freddy or at the very least is riding in him.
GOD ILL NEVER GET OVER HOW WELL ALL THESE VIDEOS ARE MADE
I kinda agree because Gregory has the same designed shirt as Evan it the same with the pants and shirt are swapped colors but I don’t think Gregory is a robot far from it
William Afton is the definiton of "But wait, there's more!"
@Nicolás Mena Lol yeah that's true
@Miketrapper04 palpatine only came back once though and it was off the sequel trilogy which was made by kathleen kennedy who openly admits her disdain for the star wars fandom and they aren't even considered canon anymore lucas disowns THAT specific timeline and is planning on getting rid of it
@MICHAEL BECKET honestly I think the Fnaf lore is so stupidly convoluted that he could’ve also cloned himself aswell, I am saying he’s palpatine because they keep bringing him back, they shouldn’t he should be dead
@prince BUT WAIT THEIRS MORE *spits everywhere profusely* BUT THIS ONES A WHOPPA!!!!!!
@Don't read profile photo its cool i cant finish it anyways unless i click on it
I just remembered something, gear lube for certain mechanical items is red, this may explain the bleeding line since that’s also what taking fluid out is called in the automotive field, similar to bleeding brakes, it wouldn’t be too far off to assume that what Michael could’ve perceived as blood, was actually mechanical Lube meant to keep Gregory moving, I like the idea of Gregory being a robot it definitely could work, and considering synthetic gear lube existed in the 80’s since Motul is credited with creating in in ‘66
I really love this content, I listen to this to sleep since it’s interesting and enjoyable! Keep it up
In the last episode Gregory stuttering when saying “I’m Gregory” it could’ve been C.C making up a new name as the animatronics could’ve known about the bite of 83 and so Freddy dosent get suspicious if he did know
That doesn't make sense. First off if he was crying child and not a robot wouldn't he have gotten older?
I spotted something about the “new eyes”. Gregory was able to see Vanessa but the other animatronics, no. Freddy was able to see Vanessa with his new eyes. These eyes are Roxy's. So this may mean that Roxy could also see Vanessa.
Not only did he apologize, but he continued to defend that theory. This is why I love this channel
@Goldy That's a very nice self description
You love it that he apologizes for something he’s not sorry for? What kind of apology is that? Oh I know, one just to appease the public. Like a weak man.
@• dont self project
Gregory: Eats a golden freddy looking ice cream.Matpat: This has lore all over it
Just watched every episode of FNAF Game Theory, and I didn’t realize how many memes on TikTok/Instagram came from random things Mat said!😂
Very cool.Though theres something I'd like to note, apparently, theres two "missing" CDs the player cant catch in normal gameplay because they're bugged.
I love this because my first thought was “yah that’s a cool theory that Gregory is Crying Child it would be cool if it were true but I’m not totally convinced” however now after watching this video I’m thinking “I hope the backlash to MatPat’s theory doesn’t make them scrap all their plans to reveal this in the next game because this was definitely their plan”
Gregory: Eating a yellow bear ice creamVanessa: Eating an ice cream similar to the one baby was going to give Elizabeth Freddy: Damn this air really hits the spot
Yea lmao so true
made me laugh, made me smile
Maybe he has a spoon in his mouth
@Devinator958 hablo español, no necesitaba traducirlo.
God bless you Mat. Im in awe on how you manage to theorise the way you do. And Im so glad you talked about things i found/thought too :) Also fnaf lore blew my mind years ago so your videos really help me out xD
5:18 gotta love when the community is hypocritical. Telling matpat its not ok to use cut dialogue for theories, yet they can use them to debunk his theories. Yeah that makes perfect sense
Could I just mention the fact that when you bring Freddy into ‘the Endo room’ that Gregory says this “I don’t know, I’m a kid!” It slightly messes with this theory because technically Gregory isn’t a complete child. Gregory then proceeds to mention leaving the room.Now to mention the vision change: Gregory might be half robotic, meaning he is able to charge in the recharge station with Freddy and his eyes may also be robotic. Or more specifically, camera lenses that somehow go weird when Vanny approaches.
8:42 when Gregory and Freddy see Vanny, Gregory asks Freddy if he saw a girl in the bunny costume, wich means that Gregory CAN see Vanny, unlike Freddy. So if they are both robots, why would chip work differently on them?
It’s almost like everyone forgets the “it’s just a theory part” love how after all these FNAF theories this is the one he gets flack for.
@Adam Nielson my pleasure🤗
@Ani Sin Will do! Thanks so much for the advice!
@Adam Nielson cry
@timeplace+ it's always related
@Buscai Salvação this isnt related.
I love these videos, but let's be real: We're all very concerned for whatever pixels of sanity Mat has left.
Can we appreciate how even if we don't like his theory he still includes and try's to prove them
Steel wool kinda just covered the franchise in unknown brown mud so i feel like the reason Gregory seems so robotic is also because he’s just a bad character, so he comes off as un relatable and like flat. But I really agree with this theory and anything that can make Security Breach seem interesting at all is more than the actual lore this game had.
I love your theories about FNAF 🤩 especially those you talk about in this video. Whenever those theories may be canon or not, I think they really make sense from a narrative and symbolic point of view
I feel bad that MatPat gets absolutely slandered for his theories. These are very entertaining to watch. Whether right or wrong, there are different way to tell him he's wrong besides banishing him to twitter hell. Keep making these theories Mat. They're Great.Edit: How did I get SO many likes on this???????????
@Santino King I just hate how every theory is clearly baity- like some outrageous theory that doesn’t really make sense but evidence is there so it *must* be true and *must* be argued- or instantly hops onto some new trending game and you can’t watch a new game without ‘wait till matpatt sees this’- or both. I used to watch this channel, popped onto this video to check if they suck as much as I remember, and I think I’ll avoid watching again :/
@Instagram User @Instagram User Get lost, if you don't like it don't watch it. If you're doing this to promote your channel.... that's just sad and pitiful.
@×Night Pop Studios× it's just a bot. An annoying one. Don't worry about it, just ignore
Ill be honest i wasnt big on the last fnaf theory but matpats vids are our reference point for fnaf knowledge and i am thankful because he die indeed make the job easier for the rest of us to understand these one of a kind video games
the fact that they cut the lines about gregory bleeding could just as easily be seen as the writers not wanting to confuse the theorists of the world into thinking gregory is human. if they intend gregory to be an animatronic or cyborg or whatever, the lines about him bleeding would muddy that intention, even if they do also intend to imply that he CAN in fact bleed and pass as human.
Your theories are literally the best part about security breach and the only part without plot-holes lol
I love this channel, for some reason it calms me for some reason, especially the final videos, keep it up.
Please don't stop making theories on this series. I never would play the games, but I love the lore breakdown you do every video!
Does the lore ever make sense? *No.*Do I still love to listen to it? *Yes.*
@6671 O that would have been amazing, but SUCH a cliffhanger
@Jw LMFAO, Aren't you a little young to be on RU-clip?
Game theory in a nutshell.
I think the lore makes sense when you put the pieces together. That’s what I always loved: even though the story is challenging to put together, the pieces to do so are (mostly) clear as day.
The “random animatronic endo ” in the blob could have been golden Freddy’s (explaining why he cannot move around like the others in previous games) also telling us that since only one eye is light means the one spirit in him has left (the crying child) and the vengeful spirit is still there, explaining why William Afton is still alive at the end of the game.I hope you see this Mat Pat!! Keep up the great work!!
Hey, at the end of the day, it is just a theory MatPat, and I am here for all the bizarreness that is FNAF. You all do amazing work!
Leave it to matpat and the game theorists to crack a few solid theories for a game within a mere few months of its release
Dont forget the fact that freddy didnt see vanny at the beginning of the game when they first encounter her. She skips by their charging booth and gregory asks freddy "did you see that?" To which freddy responds "thats a fountain." Just a little side note to show how freddy didnt see her prior to his eye upgrade
I genuinely don't care it the theories are right or not I just love hearing them explained. I mean you gotta remember this entire channel is called game THEORY
@Duck Man why do you think they are bots
Congratulations, you are more mature than MatPat and the Twitter haters, although it’s not a high bar tbh
i blindly follow everything matpat says, i never question anything this man says
I mean, considering the Game Over screen, I just always took it for granted that Gregory was a synthetic of some kind. Why wouldn't there be blood or any splootchy thudding sounds? The mechanical nature of Gregory's 'death' with all the static means something very fishy is going on, at the very least.
I love the idea that greogary is the crying child. Closure to his story feels so important and I love how this shows it
I may be missing something because I'm getting back into FNAF after 2 years, but has anyone actually counted how many random endo skeletons there are in those backrooms? The ones hanging or just standing there. Just curious.
I love how respectfully MatPat told the hardcore theorists that they were wrong. What a decent fellow.
"hardcore theorists" yeah, no.
He is a chad in general
@Moo se Indeed
In some other videos it has been theorized that "the person who dosent talk" is also Vanessa just in her "Vanny" persona. There are a lot of parallels. She hates flowers, refuses candy and other odd things that are the opposite of her behavior that we see on the tapes... like an exact opposite, all the therapists also eventually end up dead. Implying that they are getting too close to Vanessa and figuring out what's really going on so as "Vanny" is controlled by Afton she kills them and I believe even laughs about it on said tapes. It's theorized that we play as Vanessa in Help Wanted and after he takes over her consciousness she moves locations to bring Afton to this location and enact his final plan hence why she says she was needed elsewhere.. just something else to think about
I really love this from a thematic pov but I just don't think anyone knows the why. Why would the crying child be an animatronic and why would Elizabeth be Vanny. The game does a really poor job at showing us who those characters even are anyhow.
Little late to the party on this video but something always bugged me about the 3 star ending. It makes sense that you’d see the Vanny mask on the ground but why the ribbon too? Just seems like an odd detail that those were the only two parts of the costume to see on the ground
I get the impression that the events of VR onward is the “real world” and the previous games were creations of an indie developer meant to “obscure the truth”. So I can see that these recent events don’t necessarily need to line up with every detail of the past.
When you realize the definition of a Theory is an educated guess, and you can't take Matpat down.

@JR O1 we did…
Y'all should look up the definition of an educated guess
@Creeper Bloxon correct (in a scientific sense)
@Azo Sorabara [AzoSBearTM] Yes, and a law shouldn't be.
If he hadn't known already, I'm pretty sure he'd figure out he was robot when he got the magnet. He also takes fazerblasts with no visual trouble, same with vanny and vannessa. No reason to change the first name if you assume she kept her last name the same too.
Honestly with how ridiculous the plot is getting in the first place, I think any theory is valid.
Mat Pat is the only guy who can release a theory and just be like, "Now how does this all come together? I got no clue."
Not only are the aftons strongly connected to purple they’re also strongly connected to the color yellow or gold
I really like the theory of Gregory being the crying child because it means that he overcame his fear and he’s literally best friends with what used to make him so scared. It means that Afton didn’t win, and The brothers can finally get some peace
Happiest ending ever
It makes even more sense for Elizabeth to be vannesa since vannesa, baby, and scrap baby have the same voice actor and we know Scott don't do coincidences.
I love the crying child is Gregory theory It just makes so much sense and add depth to the characters both Gregory and Freddy
0:51 Matpat has reached acceptance.
I feel so bad for Mat. FNAF will never end for him, will it
@Just Another RU-clip Channel FNAF lore will do that to a man lol its a never ending spiral of insanity i lost my nonexistent wife and kids because of it🤣
@escala 85 just like william afton he will always come back lol
I don’t feel bad for him, he’s got income for life lmao. Also he seems to enjoy it, even if he’s becoming obsessed with characters being secret robots.
Welp, that never resolves itself.
His gravestone will be a golden Freddy head
Honestly ... I just blindly believe every FNAF theory that MatPat comes up with until he tells me that it's wrong
this theory was had the most evidence ever it was so detailed and so accurate
hello matpay! i liked ur video! you’re trying ur hardest in ur theories to make sense of this senseless franchise, so it’s fine if u make any mistakes!
I actually really like this theory, the idea that the Afton kids are together again is awesome and Micheal and Even as Freddy and Gregory is just too sweet
Whether you like the theories or not, just realize that he has put a lot of effort into this. And that he and his team are amazing and that he is still doing strong like 11 years later. Thanks MatPat for everything!
@Kalin The Zola yes exactly
MatPat is the GOAT
@Pokejedi to be fair his hollow knight theory was pretty garbage and went against pretty clear lore
@Tomura Skigaraki "and a lot of them didn't even watch the video"
"Robots can't bleed" - Someone who never played Metal Gear Rising.
I think all of the endings are important to a degree lore wise, but a combo of the "true ending" and the 3 star ending is canon
I don't know when this series will end. None of us will know until the next theory comes out. And the other one after that, and the others after that.
Also can I just say it’s very interesting that right after the first graphic novel version of the original fnaf books came out we got A game with multiple endings that were in the comic book style granted the endings and questions that were in that art style weren’t considered the ““ Cannon ending the one that was in the same art style as the rest of the game was the cannon ending so first thought it was probably the game designers way of telling us that this is the ending that is actually can into the lore but you could also say that because they chose the comic book style to represent the other ending maybe there canon to the book trilogy? Also I don’t mind pointing out that the art style is very similar in the graphic novels and in the endings which is probably how I first thought of this
I wonder if Scott ever watches mattpats theories while eating popcorn and laughing
Ofc he is doing that. I'm surr Scott didn't even think about most of the lore. Matpat write it himself at this point.
That would be hilarious
Yheaaaa it wasent popcorn its exotic butters
Next thing you know we find out scot has just been paying attention to mats theory’s and just chooses the ones he likes and makes sure mats right or makes a small twist just to keep Mat on his toes
Take a rest, MatPat. You've done enough theorizing for today.
I have a theory: The makers are adding lore so they can make their game more popular through Game theory
I always thought that the reason Gregory has no records in the database is well... because he's shown in one of the endings to be homeless. Literally sleeping in an alleyway inside of a cardboard box. I feel like that's the simplest answer to that question and the one most strongly implied by the game. Furthermore, I don't really see much evidence for the Gregory being a robot theory apart from anything that can't also be explained away either as some sort of stylistic choice or by a much simpler, not secretly being a robot, answer.I know I'm late to the whole conversation but just wanted to put that out there because I don't really see anyone else in the comment section saying that. Great video, tho! Enjoyed it.
with so many coincidences it seems like Scott had the story in his mind since 2014
Elizabeth and Evan(Cc) were probably William's favourite children. Michael seem to differ.Liz did love her father's animatronics, especially Circus Baby.Evan (Cc) also love the animatronics, his being Henry's suit Golden Freddy.Glitchtrap being William, he probably mind controlled Vanessa due to her resemblance to his daughter. And because he's still a genius, was able to help her create her suit to make her invisible to the other animatronics.
I love your theories 🤩
I can die happily knowing that matpat finally interacted with Mark
I honestly trust Mat here. He puts up some great evidence and while it's confusing as heck, it feels at least close to the intended plot
@random guy 🇺🇦 that was a straight up violation
@A.O.E Bro, just stop
@random guy 🇺🇦 that's just plain mean-
I am honoured to be the 1000th comment
im the 1k like!!!
My half-baked thought that I would like to share... mangle supposedly contains Elizabeth's missing dog, but there are multiple endo-heads on them and if the eye lights still matter, the extra head has a functional eye. Maybe there is another spirit to consider, I mean, it can talk.
To be honest, I just take what MatPat says as fact now on this franchise.
Man, I thought Freddy's "You look different" line was the least convincing. Anyone would look different through X-ray eyes.
this is just 20 minutes and 43 seconds of MatPat presenting his theory in the most passive-aggressive way possible, and I love it
@Sam Arnold fr I was watching like 😳😅
Lol true it's not a mistake,✨ IT'S A MASTERPIECE✨
@DumppyDum " *acTuAlLY* it iS 20mINs 44 SeCS lOng"
“ *aCtUaLlY* iTs 22 MiNuTeS aNd *44* sEcOndS 🙄🙄🙄” - 🤓
I'm starting to think that Matthew knows more about the FNAF games than Scott Cawthon does 😂
have i ever played or seen FNAF? no.have i watched this whole series and will continue to? yes.
We don't have to be mad about itIt's just a theory... A GAME THEORYA theory can be right or wrong, so we have to stay patient and see what comes to us
Another theory is Vanessa could also be the adult robotic version of Elizabeth that has been rebuilt by William just like C.C or Evan was but Gregory is the child robotic version Evan instead of the adult version.
I love Mat for doubling down. It’s not his fault the lore makes no sense. He didn’t create it, he’s just trying to put it together.
@GippyHappy hm? what
@keiruuu how dare you
he's just trying to put it back together 😏
@River have you read the Ultimate Guide?
The only reason I'm mad at the theories is because... you're most likely totally right. And dang.. I don't want those conclusions to be true :')
i was already convinced in the first part of this theory but this just confirms it for me
This theory is incredible
The fact that Gregory is a robot was pretty much obvious, no one can find his parents, he can fist fight heavy robots and fall from hights. No kid even with help of freddy could survive what he gone through
I watched Matpat calculate the size of Luigi's man parts, the Gregory theory holds up too well to earn any kind of backlash
This is exactly the theory I thought about when he called back to his worst theories, and I’m a little concerned that it was not one of them in his eyes
@Jw wrong channel, this game theory. Gay theorist is another channel
Vanny being Elizabeth actually does make sense. I dunno if this canon or fanon, but Elizabeth always want to make her father proud, so her working for him to bring him back makes sense.
Dude. Elizabeth's soul is in Baby. Baby's mask is on the blob. Do I need to make this any clearer?
I honestly think you're right about Gregory being a robot
"I remember you from the..."Me: "BITE OF 87"Mat-Pat: "underground pizzeria"Me: "Oh..."
I love this theory no matter what anyone says
