    the bite victim is not micheal afton but chris afton. micheal afton is the person you play in sister location who is getting scooped in night 5 and the one with the foxy mask in fnaf 4 when the bite happend.

    that's the awesome and frustrating thing about the animatronics, the gender is so obscure because they're just animatronics, they don't have gender and a lot of them use all pronouns anyway, not even including the children's spirits. like jeez even for a nonbinary person myself it's tricky xD also! i know the crying child is a mystery with a lot of common theories, but i really dont understand how it would be michael if another older boy in his house was bullying him. i always thought michael was crying child's older brother. maybe thats not the best theory since cc is pretty much the only child we dont have a name for, anyway that's just what i've thought the whole time, that there were three children of the afton family, cc, michael, and their sister elizabeth

    The story has changed quite a bit since the beginning and I'm not claiming to know everything but I feel like I know a little bit of everything except for one thing which Mat didn't talk about and hasn't talked about since FNAF 4. The shadow animatronics. Like seriously what the hell are those things. LIKE WTF

    Here from 2021. (So excited for security breach!!!) So it looks like security breach takes place in the 70’s or 80’s. Possibly BEFORE FNAF one. Sooooooo what if Golden Freddy is the Gregory from the trailer. Idk just a thought. Edit: I know you’ve made a video about Golden Freddy. But as you say, “That’s just a theory. A gAmE tHEoRy!!!”

    i was thinking about the whole 7 games 7 nights the games 1 to 5 a 6th night for more lore and a 7th night for costumising but fnaf world also fits in this as a mini game that tells more lore at first pretty normal but at the end more and more lore. the areas even make sense you can find the phantom animatronics in area 2 a place with dead trees in area one you can find bb and jj pretty normal and basic characters for a basic and normal area, in area 3 you can find the withered animatronics makes sense right the treas are broken and dying but not like the phantoms dead, area 4 has no special characters because water doesn't have to do with any of the animatronics, area 5 all fnaf 4 characters except for nightmare and nigmare fredbear you can also find the endo's and golden freddy the nightmares is self excplanetory the endo's aswell because it's a graveyard and they are endoSKELETONS and golden freddy is an angry spirit and spirit are at graveyards, plushtrap and springtrap can be found at area 6 makes sense because plushtrap is a toy you can win a toy at a fair and springtrap wants to murder kids and kids go to circuses and circuses have suits and costumes, in the pinwheel funhouse you can find Springtrap, RWQFSFASXC, Crying Child, Funtime Foxy, Nightmare Fredbear, Nightmare, Fredbear and Spring Bonnie most of these have to do with the story or represent something that happend in the story funtime foxy is not from fnaf 5 but is mangle repaired.

    Fnaf 1 night 4 've help wanted can you do a theory about that? It's about phone guy me and my cousin think we cracked it because he is in the back room and we were pretty sure he wanted us to help him but he died so I am trying to say I think he Is that endoskeleton in the back room weird thing thought is that I'm pretty sure golden Freddy killed him because since everyone is in position on stage...Golden Freddy didn't have a stage so where do you think IT is because IT is definitely not in the back room so where could golden Freddy be hiding?
