  • I'd say that there is no timetravel, and that, perhaps, Larsson's glimpses into the past serve as explanation that what Oswald saw, was more of a hallutination, rather then an actual timetravel...Just a thought, I'm pretty sure there are holes in that explanation.

  • Hi MatPat, this is my own theory. Without any proof at all. What if Mike and Micheal are different entity. What if Mike is the "Crying Child" and Micheal is the main character from FNAF 1 to 6. Like I said, this theory has no proof.

  • Mattpatt that theory isn't dumb at all. If he's seeing memories like that over and over, while going back in time to the incident. Then wouldn't he eventually be driven insane into believing that he is indeed Afton 🤔. Because here's something to think about. What happened in Afton's childhood? Also the abusive behavior can even be explained due to the memory relapsing. You could think of it as a severe case of PTSD.

  • I have an interesting theory about pigtail girl. So in fnaf 4 pigtail girl says to cc that the animatronics come to life and kill you and we know that this was in 1983. We also know that the children's incident most likely happened in 1985. WAIT WHAT! Then who is she talking about its not like she knows about the nightmare's they were most likely around when cc is in a coma. The missing children haven't even gone to possess the aminatronics or have they? Maybe an incident happened before maybe just maybe something happened before them like what happened to Elizabeth. Maybe security breech has something to do with this explains this as this could seriously be in the 80's and like you said afton time traveled that would explain so much about how advanced security breech is. It could literally be the 60's to 50's which would help to prove the miss afton theories with vanessa. This is just a small theory so here you go

  • I mean, to show more evidence to Mike being the FNaF 3 nightguard, just look at the cutscene for Sister Location. Mike saying ”I’m going to come find you” with the burnt down Fazbear Frights in the background and Springtrap being showed to have survived. All that implies that Mike was the one who burnt the place down.

Because uh, Emmy, is that you? lol (Emmymade, the one on the very right) Sorry if it's already been said who they are or if they're supposed to be random models (probably not random though because she even has her red string necklace)
