  • If matpat keeps making fnaf theories for another three years and a half there will be officially 10 years worth of fnaf game theories

  • There is a strange pattern. I can’t explain it too well, but we learn the truth for each game in their own respective order, like fnaf 1, 2, 3, and most likely 4 soon.

  • What if Scott never made a story line for FNAF and mat pat is just making it for him so Scott adds little things so mat pat still makes theory’s and it’s more content for a both of them. And if this is true does that mean MatPat is the creator of the fnaf story line and he wasted almost 8 years of his life making content about a child murder that killed 20+ kids (too many to count) in a Chuck E Cheese style restaurant game that he doesn’t even own? ................. BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY A RANDOM THOUGHT IN MY HEAD WHICH IS NOT LIKELY TO BE TRUE LIKE MAT PATS DREAM THEORY FROM FNAF 4 THEORY THANKS FOR READING.

  • I'm not here for FNAF - but I am here for a proposal. For a game theory. Look into Ark:Survival Evolved dear Matpat, look into its deepest lore chasms as it is ending, and Ark:2 is being born...and then refer to this (Watch the Ark Genesis part 2 ending boss fight end cutscene, Syntacs "ARK Genesis Part 2 Ending! - ARK Survival Evolved DLC" is a good one, you can skip the actual boss-fight if you wish) ...Edmund Rockwell...and everyone else can still be alive. If Santiago (Vin Diesels character in Ark:2, big character in Ark:extinction) was respawned on an Ark, and died - and respawned on the Eden half of the Genesis ring's in orbit around the foreign planet - this means Rockwell (Edmund Rockwell), Helena (HLNA as you know her in Genesis), and the rest of the gang (if you looked deep into the Island ark explorer notes, good job then you know who I mean) can still be alive. Rockwell is the big one though because he is what squandered mankinds greatest vessel, forcing the only ring he didnt corrupt with the evil element to be seperated and the rest of the ship destroyed. (If you looked deep enough, youd understand how Rockwell became well, Rockwell as we see in Genesis 2) Also, the specimen implant in survivors means Santiago was able to remember he was respawned before so he kept his memories from being respawned on the Ark's, and this means so will Helena Walker, Rockwell, and everyone else (Maybe) and if so, Rockwell will have learned his lesson and not be corrupt again, assuming there's no sign of element on the planet the Genesis ship found. In his last words he regret his actions, in taking the ship, in everything - Or if he doesn't remember, and his implant was, well, separated in his "transformation" he may repeat his past actions. You probably wont even see this but if so, its a great theory. And probably no one has ever played ark here, its a very friendly community, unlike arks community, but I really want this theory to see the light of day. Alas this is not the way of the world, and this paragraph has a very high likelihood of being forgotten and neglected, and my brain power I used to come up with this theory, wasted. But if you do then that would be very cool and no one here probably knows what I'm talking about but MatPat has the brain power to figure it out with a whole lotta healthy research, so please, consider looking into this. And im only putting this here cause this is the latest video maybe ill put this on your next vid, who knows...but this is about a GAME, and its a THEORY. So consider.

  • Has anyone else considered that the old blood Larson finds in the ball pit could be Williams? I mean look at the cover over the first book clearly thats blood coming out of the eyes of the rabbit suit and it would make sense that its that tone of color because when it comes out of the ball pit that would be the springtrap suit before it rotted but since its in present day it would show that in current time William died in the suit and therefore he would have had vast amounts of damage done to his eye which explains why theres blood on the eyelids of the suit
