theory: matpat is patient 46 and his therapists exploded from the stress of trying to comprehend fnaf lore
This is the clip u all looking for :
First real comment here
@Door-Kun broski is flesh :gasp:
BUT HEY! THATS JUST A THEORY. A GAME THEORY!!
Markiplier might be the king of FNAF but Matpat deserves the title of "King of FNAF lore"
I thought everyone called him that anyway 😂🤣
Jesus Christ Loves You!!
@Ethan Ulloathanks Jesus!
Matpat really is the FNAF Lore Lord
To this day it still amazes me that MatPat still works his hardest on not giving up on the FNAF lore. Also when MatPat does not mention Music Man then this game theory video will start to get serious.
why would he, he gets millions of views for his fnaf videos.
Don't read my name!.
Jesus Christ Loves You
Bro, if Matpat went to a therapist for help cuz of his stressing out over FNAF lore, he'd probably end up giving the therapist trauma
i like the idea that no matter how many times william “always comes back”, charlie will be there to see that he’s put back to rest and kassidy won’t be far behind to see that he suffers
Jesus Christ Loves You
@Ethan Ulloacan i get a hallelujah
The ultimate tag team
@Ethan Ulloa salam u aleikum
Thanks Heynotizzy for the correction
Therapist: What’s bothering you?
Therapist: Can you explain more?
MatPat: Oh boy..
**gives therapist trauma**
Matpat: how long is this session again?
But that's just a theory...
"So it all started with Fredbear's family diner, an animatronic diner founded by Henry Emily and his co-founder William Afton. Back then...
I imagine Scott Cawthon just sitting on a red velvet chair, with tons of money around him, happily chuckling while smoking a rich person cigar with the whole plot for the lore for the next ten years in his head while MatPat is going fully insane on these FNAF theories
It just hit me. Either Scott told a group of developers what the story is and they have not said anything. Or there are two cannons Scott’s and the team that made security breach.
According to Steel Wool, Scott told them to put in some things, but didn't explain why.
You're propably right, as because of the internet pressuring Scott into retiring from FNAF the timeline may not go in the intended direction
“It’s the best of times, it’s the worst of times” - Matpat, slowly going insane from all the fnaf lore
Matpat figured out the dlc before it released, now that’s some real dedication
Everyone says matpat goes crazy with fnaf but the entire fnaf series is insane enough to make anyone who Glaces at it go mad
Bot f u
You even copied the spelling error
As we watch Matpat’s sanity unfold it’s like reading in on his own lore, like he’s generating some complex lore that we have to find out now
THATS WHAT I WAS THINKING
dude was crazy long ago
someimes hes crazy sometimes not bet fnaf made him crazy back then
IVE BEEN THINKING THE SAME THING
Matpat has, loooooooore
I remember MatPat saying a few years back that there aren't that many FNAF theories on the channel. Well, they've... multiplied.
I think the reason the books have suddenly started to become more explicit with the lore and connections is because Scott's finally realized he needs to be more clear about what he wants the story to be
I totally get why Mat is convinced Gregory is a robot mastermind but… you play the game and i just can’t help but think he’s just some lovable slightly sassy lost kid gosh dang it 😂
I mean, if he is indeed a robot, his memory could have gotten corrupted. So he could be both the hacker mastermind in the past, and a slightly sassy lost kid now.
Help wanted 2 is probably a prequel that will be about Gregory being possessed soooooo no
why can't he be both?
With the “3rd generation” of games (help wanted, special delivery, and security breach), it really feel like the franchise has stepped away from supernatural horror, with ghosts and possession, and fully embraced sci-if horror with malicious viruses and evil AI
In Dawko's interview with Scott he said that he prefer writing in the sci-fi genre and throughout the early games he had to hold himself back from making thing too much sci-fi. So it makes sense that it would take this direction.
Charlie tapping into the animatronics could also serve as a reason as to why Glamrock Freddy wants to help Gregory, yet doesn’t know why. The puppet was always known as the one to help the fallen children after all…
Also noticed this green + purple combo on Roxy, Monty and Chica. All three of them have both colors somewhere in their designs, which i noticed when i first played and thoughts was kind of interesting, especially since Freddy doesn't have them, almost hinting that he's different in some way to us the player.
you can get a purple bowtie from upgrades and I think you were supposed to get monty's legs or smth, which would probably get the green color.
The fact that Charlie is in charge of the Pizzaplex, due to the use of Marionette iconography in several parts of the building, kind of like a tree, seems to contradict what Matpat said in his previous video-- on the Blob, the Puppet's eyes aren't lit red like the other animatronics, and it doesn't have tear marks like it normally does. As a result, Matpat states that Charlie's soul exists elsewhere-- the Pizzaplex itself couldn't be it.
well i mention this not to fat up but i think personally the blob are all the spirits that got dragged back with afton and so the blob is really just a pile of victims. that's my theory at least. like if afton came back, why wouldn't have the other?
The blob is not the same as the wires, they look different.
Charlie soul is just freed, that's it, there is no contradictions
@GrenouilleSuprême Yes, but where would she go after getting freed? Her soul is clearly "elsewhere", as Matpat states, but he doesn't explicitly tell that her soul is possessing the Pizzaplex.
@YelloHammer no, just in the afterlife, she's not stuck on earth anymore, souls in fnaf are not stuck forever as ling as there is no remnant keeping them here they just die and the fire destroyed her remnant
When I saw "Solved" I was shocked beyond shocked.
It's been almost a DECADE since Matpat was trying to crack FNAF lore and "SOLVED"in this case is just a very strong word here.
Be reminded, I am currently 36 SECONDS into this video, but I'm just saying.😂
It would be funny if later down the line in, say, 5 years Scott drops books explaining the entire story and Matpat gets 98% of it all right
Let's be honest he would get like 12% right his theories constantly get debunked.
Team Theorist is going to have a field day with the fnaf movie lol
Just imagine seeing Mat and his team at the premiere of the movie with notebooks and pens
I can see this happening
Wait that's actually so true. Mat will probably talk the whole movie and wish he could rewind.
I just imaged it so vividly lmao they would be discussing theories during the trailers
Matpat is going to die when the movie comes out
It seems like Scott and SW Studios are trying to make up for what happened with Security Breach and I'm so glad because to be honest, as much as I love this franchise and that game, I was a little worried 😅
This video was definitely eye opening, and i pray to god it won't all be debunked when ruin comes out. Because it actually makes sense for once.
FNAF finally makes just a little bit of sense...
It would be cool to see a theory on Into the Radius VR. There is lore all throughout the play through of the game, would be awesome to see
I know you probably won’t see this but I just wanted to say that as my parents have been getting divorced this past year your channels have been a huge support for me due to me loving these games and films etc. I’ve been watching your channel since I was I was eight and now 6 nearly seven years later they are a huge inspiration to me. Thank you, for everything
It's crazy to think that i saw your first FNAF theory when I was just a young kid in primary school. now I'm finishing college and still watching.
Thanks Matpat for years of entertainment and here's to another awesome decade 🍻
Jesus Christ Loves You!!
@Ethan Ulloa no
When was the first one?
@Joseph Tyre 2014
Gregory being a robot is even more solid when you notice to his vision is start glitching when Glitch Trap is close.
4:45 I've been agreeing with MatPat since the first theory video
I really appreciate how Mat changes his intro every episode, it's nice
If the story teller was bought in to generate new stories, those stories would have to be based off some kind of training data it gathered due to being an AI. If this is the case, that would explain why the books aren't 1 to 1 to the games. The stories in Tales from the Pizza Plex are literally Tales from the storyteller at the pizza plex. Things would happen at different attractions at the pizza plex over its runtime before security breach, and since the story teller had like full control over the entire place, that would allow it to gather the data of these events and turn them into stories. And just like how AI can't exactly generate things perfectly, the stories from the storyteller are just a little off from the actual events with some name changes as well.
Surprised Scott hasn't made an actual pizzeria chain yet and put law in it
I think is actually in the order that MatPat just explained it. Greg/46 is a evil robot that transforms the animatronics into hunter by hacking them and kills his therapists, but later at some point he gets reprogrammed by Charlie/Henry and turns into Gregory, the one we play as.
Security Breach takes place somewhere around 2050 there is no way that Henry would still be alive.
@Phobia Animations SB is in 2035 bro
@Phobia Animations That's why I wrote Charlie/Henry. I'm not sure if was only Charlie or Charlie with Henry or Henry, and then Charlie was busy saving missing souls, etc
So I was just stuck in a link to the past, and your videos always help me know where to go if I’m really stuck. Thanks!
Oh hey, Matpat's solved FNAF again.
With every Fnaf episode we gain more knowledge on the series, but we lose more of MatPat's sanity
Can't we just appreciate the amount work he put inside of us
I actually think Matpat is going to be largely correct about everything because Scott has secretly offloaded the lore-crafting onto him and is watching all these videos and taking notes.
That's been a running theory (aha) for as long as I can remember honestly.
Don't read my name!.
@#1 Roxy Fan WE DID IT BOYS WE FOUND SOMEONE ELSE WHO SYMPATHIZES WITH ROXY
there’s this game series that i used to play a few years ago. it’s called cube escape. it’s got some lore behind it and i got some of it but i know for sure you could figure the whole story out. i love this game and am currently replaying it and i would love a video on it. it’s a bunch of escape rooms where the character is trying to escape his past i think. i would love a video ❤️
Personally I think the pizzaplex books are connected to the canon games. Mainly because, the desc for them told us they were (this was written by Scott) the desc was only taken down because Scholastic changed it. NOT Scott. This means that in the lore the books were intended to be canon.
I’ve been waiting for this video ever since the trailers for the movie, dlc and vr game dropped. I knew he was gonna make a vid. So glad I checked in everyday
i feel like i've listened to the mimic story a thousand times already it better actually show up in the dlc lol
The fact that what I said about Henry rebuilding Charlie in my “I Solved Security Breach” series might actually be true is insane. Glad MatPat is now on board haha ;)
Hello John from FuhNaff
Your theory was epic and it made sense so of course MatPat was going to be on board :D
hullo i love that we’re watching this at the same time lol
you and matpat are making me have hope for the future of security breach/fnaf, i really personally enjoy the sci-fi direction its going in (as im pretty sure scott is more of a sci-fi guy than horror, dont quote me on that-)
Don't read my name.!..
The Green and Purple thing also seems reflected in the designs for Chica, Roxanne and Monty. All have green and purple in thier designs, Chica has purple on her legs and forearms, and green earrings. Roxanne is purple but has green hair. Monty is green but his shoulder pads are purple. Those 3 are directly being controlled by Charlie and Glitch Trap, while Freddy the only one not being influenced has no purple or green in his desgin.
with that whole 'green and purple' thing mat was talking about, the cover art for the dlc has purple lights in the background and green text saying "help me". Just another spot where that colour combo appears
Matpat is going insane day by day, and Im all here for it
Hamster I'm with you he's going insane day by day
@Don't Read My Profile Picture i wont
Thank you matpat, you saved my evening. All it took was your sanity.
Yet again another theory about FNAF, Matpat. At this point the theories never end..
Can we appreciate how they tried their best to make this amazing video for us
I started watching matpat when I was a kid from fnaf I’m so amazed he still has great theory’s over this mysterious game
i always took "dont give up on me yet" as a tongue and cheek reference to everyone being done with Security Breach and writing it off as not creepy or challenging but RUIN will be the opposite to make up for the lack-luster main game. "dont give up on the devs yet, we can change the tone whenever we feel like"
When it comes to FNAF, MatPat is always ready to do a theory about it and drift into insanity
Here is a full clip : that explains
@LyricaI Lenomade 🅥 fake
my theory is that the pizzaplex is actually in the alternate universe and thats why it fits so well with the books
OK, I got the thought of Charlie possessing a giant white tiger animatronic or statue (which gets the signature tear markings upon possession, of course) in order to fight Afton and it's just too awesome.
I’ve really been loving the FNAF lore lately man lol, can’t wait to see what happens as the franchise continues! Keep it up guys! 😄
awesome theory, awesome references, s tier editing ❤
i like to think that MatPat's dreams consist entirely of fnaf lore ideas
"Bad news i don't think the wider fnaf community is gonna agree with me on this one" -Every fnaf theory from matpat ever
This is the clip u all looking for :
Wtf bots get out
@Clockman yeah they gross
This is getting repetitive.
All of the FNAF community is wide.
I imagine John/Fuhnaff is quite happy that the things he saw and found out are paying off.
18:38 Charlie and Glitchtrap fighting with the ink drop tools like lightsabers is giving me life
Congrats on #1 on trending and quite a W for Matpat
I'm actually so hyped for the upcoming theories. It's always a dopamine rush when a MatPat FNaF Theory pops up on my phone
Matpatt never fails to spread my cheeks and fill them up inside 😁😁
Matpat made it his goal to solve ruin before if even comes out 💀
I just love how MatPat works to bring these episodes
He failed to beat Scott to it when FNAF 4 arrived, but he most CERTAINLY beat Steel wool in the DLC.
Goes to show how indie becomes a little more pants when AAA.
I subscribed to all Theorists channels quite a while ago and have always loved MatPat's way of telling a story. I didn't realise how much until now... I've never played this game, read these books.. nothing. My only exposure to this story has been through MatPat.. and I'm only here cause of his amazing energy in these videos. Awesome.
MatPat: "this is the final theory!"
Me: ".. nah, not gonna be the last one."
Today, MatPat proves me right. He can never escape FNAF. Unless they stop making books and games and other things, it'll never end.
Even when they stop he'll be finding more lore in the stuff we already have 😂
I mean, the ultimate timeline was never advertised as the final theory.
Yeah, that was also gonna be a "sure, Jan" moment
Uhhhh when did he mention "final" theory tho
Even after so many years, I'm always excited for another FNAF Lore video.
This is cool. John at FuhNaff has been saying this very thing for weeks now. The Charlie presence, fight of good and evil between Charlie and Afton, Henry/Edwin and child comparisons, etc. It's cool to see his theory being "validated", if you will, by the FNAF authority that is Game Theory. I'm sure it means a lot to him. I only wish he would have gotten some credit or a small mention for contributing to the thought. If I recall correctly, his theory had a little push back from the community. So, this could turn out to be a real "I was right" moment for him.
Yeah, I was hoping for a little shout-out to John in this theory.
I like how even if matpat can be absolutely and completely worng and sometimes unloigcal,the lore will still be based on what he says
Just something to point out, in the poster of the ruin dlc (I think that is what it is) the 2 prominent background colors of the pizzaplex are green and purple too
Kudos to Charlie for sticking out this long
I think I'm going just as insane as matpat cause i legit get goosebumps when he points out something
i love watching your channel, and even more now that i broke my arm, im glad my childhood hasn't gone away from the theorist's channel's.
I Watch FNAF videos whenever I have an analysis essay due, makes me feel like I’m not over analyzing everything
honestly, I've been waiting for another fnaf episode, but didn't expect that he's not done on the lore yet
Therapist: ok so whats wrong with you?
MatPat: fnaf lore…
Therapist: could you please explain more?
MatPat: oh boy
MatPat already trying to understand Ruin before we even get the game is such a Matpat thing to do
@The FiIm Thoerists 🅥 Really, thoerists? These bots are goofy.
@Endeavor goofy little guy
@Endeavor also, only a bot would reply within 15 minutes of a new video.. wait a minute
@The FiIm Thoerists 🅥 YOUR ON EVERY COMMENT I LOOK AT
ive never played fnaf but ive been watching these videos for 3 years and Mat Pat is honestly great
Fnaf lore is like a Lovecraftian monster. It just makes you go insane after a while.
Thanks for sharing this video with us, MatPat team! Including the book lore in your theories certainly opens up possibilities. It's as interesting as it is complex (and confusing).
The idea that Gregory might be Patient 46 and maybe Glitchtrap's robot minion is intriguing, but I'm not sure how much can be confirmed based on the game evidence I've seen so far. Gregory's behavior seems fairly normal for a kid. He doesn't recognize Vanessa or Vanny, which could mean that they've never met or that Gregory is missing memories. Also, I don't think Gregory has displayed any major hacking skills. His glitching vision around Vanny could hint at a robotic nature though, as you once mentioned.
Based on your description, Mimic resembles FNaF novel Circus Baby, whose body started out as a fourth Charlie-bot but was modified by William and fused with Elizabeth. Does this make the Mimic a symbolic mix of novel Charlie and Elizabeth? The Mimic was even created just for David, which reminds me of how game Elizabeth refers to Baby as being made just for her.
Purple is William's color, but Glitchtrap could be connected to the color green. A few scenes from Help Wanted show Glitchtrap with green light shining on him. In Princess Quest, the Glitchtrap plush is green. Also, the prison cell keyhole in the third game has green circuitry lines rather than purple ones. Interestingly, the mystery rabbit in the Ruin trailer has green and purple circuitry lines on their head.
He has tried to quit making fnaf videos more than i can count but no matter how many times he tries he cant escape THE LORE
The manner and cadence in which MatPat said "How? When? Not sure" during the he triangles section reminded me of Rorschach from The Watchmen.
Can we just appreciate for a second how fun it is to watch video's of the game theory crew? Like the editing and everything is great
Edit: I'm not a bot I just wanted to comment
I know right!
Agreed but they aren’t matpats videos it’s the whole crew
The new bot response lol
Ctrl c + ctrl v comment
Fr they lowkey remind me of crash course videos due to the fast talking and animations
I can't wait to see Matpat react to the movie when it comes out
I can't even think of how mat is happy yet annoyed that he was right with the books :D
Thanks to the editor we can enjoy everything he says and understand half of it teh editor needs a oscar bro cant get sleep thinking of editing these videos.
Something else that is interesting to consider is that if both of them were in fact competing for control. It would explain why the robots lose Gregory so quickly.
Charlie is actively trying to hinder the boys from catching him.
I think not mentioning the robot mimic after it was abandoned really left out a lot of important context. The idea that Charlie is in the pizzaplex is really cool but I still think both mimics are more Afton based
Fun fact, green and purple are on 1/3rd intervals of a colour wheel, you know what’s directly between them? Orangy-brown, the colour of Gregory’s eyes in game. They are described as brown but hazel is probably better.
That is SMART
Orangy-brown is also the color of glamrockfreddy's "fur"
Also- did anyone else notice that all the robots but glamrock freddy have some element of green &/or purple on them?
@Coco Chan GIGABRAIN power-move by whoever came up with that idea, Scott or a writer at Steel Wool.
Hopefully it fully pays off in the Ruin DLC better than when Security Breach first released...
Just came to comment this! Very notable detail
I've actually had an idea like this before, i thought a way they could continue the games is to have a kind of war between glitch trap and another old character, however i thought it would've been golden Freddy, leaning into the supernatural and Gregory would only work with her because she's against Afton. But i now think Charlie is better mainly because the character has so much importance and has been underused.
I’m surprised FNAF is popping on the number 1 trending spot a lot lately, especially here.
It's so cool to watch these videos, they're so entertaining!!
Also!! Have you thought of doing a theory about Genloss?
Nothing better than a surprise game theorist fnaf theory.
The chromatic aboration near the end also lines up with Gregory's shirt colour, which is the direct in between of those colours.
god i love when mat pat explains lore in the most camp counselor way possible
Don't read my name!.
Nothing like eating pizza that the place got wrong, watching a video about a murderous pizzeria
You know, almost every fnaf video I watch on this channel confuses me. I'm always lost. I'm just here for the nostalgia. I love it though. Maybe at some point the information will slowly seep in and I'll finaly understand the lore.😂
