    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

    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’

    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.

    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.

    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 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???????????

    • AggroBlu

      @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 :/

    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.

      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.

  • Amebra
    Amebra 2 months ago +2

    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.

  • Abbie Blunt

    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

  • Алексей Радченко

    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?

  • Freyja The Healer
    Freyja The Healer 3 months ago +2

    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”

    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!!

    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

  • Marco XwX
    Marco XwX Month ago +1

    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.

  • Taylor Latinovich
    Taylor Latinovich 2 months ago +1

    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.

  • monkeyha
    monkeyha 3 months ago +1

    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

  • Chris Arzate
    Chris Arzate 2 months ago +1

    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

    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 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.

  • SkylightCiel
    SkylightCiel 2 months ago +2

    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.

  • WynneL
    WynneL 3 months ago

    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 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.

    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.

    It's my belief that Elizabeth could actually be partially possessing Vanessa.. It just reminds me of the stitchwraith story where baby and william were both possessing trash Afton. Plus I've been wondering about your theory that baby would secretly play a bigger part in this game which didn't pan out at least as we saw it. Idk maybe, but it does seem to me like there's more to this Elizabeth/Vanessa connection than just some similarities

    In the 16th tape, the therapist actually reveals that Vanessa was lying about her parents and her parents were actually normal. She had a normal childhood. So her dad can't be William Afton. Also if Vanessa is 20 years old and this game takes place in the future, it would make the events of the original games over 40 years ago; after William had already died numerous times. How would William come back to life, have a baby as a dead dude, then die again? Vanessa is too young to be his child. UNLESS SHE'S ALSO A ROBOT..

      12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.
      3:19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,
      3:16 'For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
      3:17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
      3:19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.

    I'm always going to be on mat pats side because I can't play horror games and I particularly don't want to read the books but I AM super curious about the lore and I have been since the game first came out. 😅 So he us my ONLY access to the wild lore of a game universe I'm not actually apart of. Keep up the theories and videos, I know I can't be the only one 💜

    We also know that Elizabeth in Fazbear Pizzaria Simulator said that he would make his dad proud. So maybe the moment that Vanessa realised that she was being control by GlichTrap she didn't try to stop him like the others because she want to make his dad (William afton) proud.

    I'm pretty confident that the 'You're broken. I will put you back together' lines are actually William Afton since the Bite of 83 involved Crying Child getting his head chomped, kind of 'breaking him'.
