    The only issue I have with this storyline is the timeline (ironically)
    William Afton was alive around 1930s, and in here, Security Breach is set in 2030s. So unless Clara Afton was uncomfortably younger than William, She has to be around 100 years old if She's even still alive

    I literally grew up watching Mapat's FNAF videos on Game Theory. This series on FNAF was my entire childhood. I'm so glad I got to grow with these videos. It's nice to see a cohesive, mostly complete theory to put this franchise to rest.
    That is, until the DLC and the movie come out.

    Usually, some of Mattpats FNAF theories tent to be kinda far fetched, but really, the way this he explained it all and analyzed it makes this final timeline theory actually seem like a coherrent narrative!
    Especially considering this is FNAF we're talking about!
    The only big whole I currently see here is that, if you do the math, Mrs. Afton is most likely somewhere way over 70 years old, considering she was old enough to have a teenage son in the 1990s, which would most likely be somewhere between 30 and 50! Add 40 years up to Security Breach and you get an at least 70 years!
    Though I gotta say, since she had the formula for Remnant, and maybe even some leftover doses from William, she could've easily injected herself with that stuff! The Remnant let Michael live, move around, tamper with animatronics and (In FNAF 6) let him move such big robots into a building, for years on end, all despite being a literal rotting corpse!
    So I'd be suprised if that stuff couldn't keep an old woman alive and kickin!

I cried after watching this series because I feel like Matt finally did it, and most importantly, he’s happy. 9 whole years, and Matt’s happy with a fnaf theory. He changed the narrative we all knew, but in a logical way. Congrats, Matt, Steph, everyone on the team. You did it.

  • Richard Martin
    Richard Martin Місяць тому +23

    Couple of things I hope you consider. First, in your timeline, William sold his ownership stake (at least a significant percentage of it) in the Fazbear Corporation. So the trademarks, patents, and all other IP would belong to the corporation, not Mrs. Afton upon his death. Also the company went bankrupt, so that stuff would have all been sold to pay off corporate debts. Now given that a decent percentage of his research is about child murder, those probably weren't listed as corporate assets, so maybe she found that stuff while going through his belongs or something. The IP needed to reopen the pizzeria, however, she would have had to purchase from the bankruptcy. Given that it was associated with child murder, she could have gotten it on the cheap. But she wouldn't just inherit it. Second, as for the emails referencing management trying to stop the spread of the Springtrap virus, I have two potential explanations. She could have only wanted to target Vanessa, but prevent it going anywhere else. Or she could have been replaced as the head of the company. Not sure how that fits in the timeline, but it's possible one person approved the plan to scan the boards, but a new person replaced her (or whoever) and ordered the scanning stopped. Food for thought. Keep up the great work. I'll never play these games, but I feel like I know plenty about them from your videos.

    Don’t know if anyone else has noticed this yet but in the cast credits for the FNAF movie there is a character simply named ‘female villain’. She’s played by Mary Stuart Masterson. What other female villain could we have in the fnaf lore? I think MatPat is right on the money with ‘Clara’ Afton being the new big bad

    It actually makes so much sense, I’m honestly surprised you managed to put FNAF VR into the timeline because I couldn’t myself think of this game possibly being an important and relevant part of the lore. I knew some infos were important and were not here for nothing but I never could come up with something. You did an amazing job Mat, we’re proud of your work and how you made all of this. Also the editing is always on point, great job to everyone who worked on this video 🙌🏻

    As for the mom suddenly turning back and trying to stop her husband from coming back after opening the pizza plex, I can see it being out of fear of the puppet.

    As much as I love this theory how old does that make Clara? In the first video Mat says that William was a child in the 1930s and Clara begins her work to ‘rebuild the family’ in 2035 so assuming she is around the same age as William she would be roughly 100 years old

    I feel like this timeline makes sense. I can see another filling in that position of the CEO for FF LLC, but I have to agree that it is the mother. I feel like after everything the family's been through, I wouldn't be surprised if the mother had a psychotic break and made everything happen. And it's too much of a coincidence with the parallels between everything already covered and what's happened in Security Breach.

    So, curious question. Have you thought about doing a theory as to why Roxanne Wolf has unique eyes, compared to the other Pizzaplex animatronics? What was the point of making her eyes unique to all the other characters, other than plot convenience for Gregory giving Freddy new eyes?
    I've been looking around to see if anyone talked about it, but I didn't find anything. Or did you already explain it in an earlier video that I didn't catch it?

    I'm really proud of you for figuring out the timeline, Matpat! But I feel like now that there's nothing to speculate about I feel… empty? Can anyone else relate? It's not like one of those "I mIsS tHe OlD fNaF" situations, it's just that back when nobody knew who Golden Freddy was we had something mysterious to talk about at shcool, college, heck even work. I really like the lore and timeline you’ve all created, yet I still don't feel satisfied I don't crave more, I wish there was less, I just feel empty inside now that theres nothing to speculate about.

    I'd say for the part where they try to contain a bit of the Glitchtrap virus is for the Mom to want the family back together but not want William to go off and do his own stuff again. By trying to contain him to a single body limits his control and brings back the family. :)

    i have something to say, because those security bots that jumpscare you, and calls for the other robots reminds me of the fnaf four animatronics, bc they kinda keep you away from there where you want to go, and the nightmares they were made to keep micheal in the room.
    thanks for reading this =).

    Sheesh. Why would Afton’s “wife” want anything to do with her lunatic husband to the point she would revive the company and become the NEW big bad after everything William did? If I was her, I’d abandon the Afton name and divorce him.
    And I still find the “Gregory is Robot” thing to be the biggest conundrum to why he is hiding from Vanny or why Burntrap/the possessed animatronics would be after him. One more thing: about the whole “bad childhood” for Vanessa being the best means to control her, CD 16 LITERALLY has the therapist say they LIED when confronting about their family. This is Vanessa. Glitchtrap was trying to keep himself from being found and his grip broken. I purposefully think Matt overlooked this.

    Hello fellow theorists! I'm going to other FNAF channels, because seeing more perspectives gets more answers. So, please share your theories! This is to help everyone get their ideas down, so please, even if it's the most controversial theory, PLEASE Share! I'd love to hear more theories and their reasoning, ( Also, if you do find a FNAF theory you don't agree with, instead of replying to them, make an opposing theory instead of making arguments-) and have an amazing day everyone!
