Top Ten Strangest Five Nights at Freddy's Theories

The Top Ten

1 When Foxy Jump Scares You In Five Nights at Freddy's 2... He Hugs You!

I heared of this, I laughed so hard - SackofCheese


Nani what in the world? Why did this... - HistorianaPhilippiniana

He legit doesn't hug you. My theory is that he eats your face off. Seriously. He jumps at your face and GRIPS YOUR FACE! So maybe after he jumpscares you he eats your head. MatPat would be disappointed with this theory, I gotta say. - GameTheorist

2 Bonnie Caused the Bite of 87 Because His Mouth Is Big

It was either Freddy or Foxy. - SackofCheese

It was mangle
It happened in fnaf 2
During the day
Not foxy

He had no face in 1987. Theory disproved. - TeamRocket747

I don't think it was Bonnie, it was most likely Freddy because they had just closed down Fredbear's Family Diner due to the bite of 83 by Golden Freddy. Also, Freddy's mask has a children's handprint on it which is probably most likely from him malfunctioning and biting a child hense when Phone Guy says "The animatronics used to be able to wander around, but then there was the bite of 87. Yeah. It's amazng how a human body can live without the frontal lobe." He says this to us in FNAF 2 I think.

3 The Endoskeleton Belongs to the "Purple Guy".


Purple guy is a human. I could be wrong though.

He is an animatronic but the endoskeleton isn't his

4 There Was Actually a Whole Band of Golden Animatronics at Fredbear's Family Diner

Yea cause back at Fred bears and friends family diner Fred bear and spring Bonnie are gold

Prolly because if you play the game... - Mefty

There are only two proven olden Characters that performed at Freddy Fazbears, Golden Freddy (Called Fredbear) and Spring Bonnie (Later games he was called Springtrap because of the incident with Purple Guy.) - LilRose

Hm... I honestly don't know. - GameTheorist

7 Five Nights at Freddy's 4 Will Take Place at the Five Nights at Freddy's 2 Site

Game is already out and takes place in a house. - LilRose


It took place in the child's house.

Actually I came up with this theory because it's the only possible place to have the game set. Will Scott Cawthon surprise us with the scene? (We ALL love surprises)

Who the hell do you think you are

I have lost faith in humanity. - LilRose

End my life please. I don't want to be on this planet anymore. - SackofCheese

Dudes this is a joke just calm down m8s

9 The Mark On Freddie's Face Is His Hand Mark

Totally true

The theory behind the handprint hasn't been proven, so stop treating it like it's canon. Plus, Freddy didn't cause the Bite of '83, Golden Freddy (Fredbear) did. - LilRose

It es - Mefty

In cannon, Freddy caused the bite of 83 and the child tried to escape, which is why there is a hand pint on his face.

10 There's a Reason Behind Night 8

Were people living under a rock? - LilRose

Actually I kinda believe it

The Contenders

11 Fnaf Was Based On a Real Life Incident

Not true. Five Nights At Freddy's is entirely fictional. - LilRose

Yep. - SackofCheese

Yeah, the shooting at chucke cheese

Yep shooting at chucke cheese

12 Carl Has 2 Counterparts.

Probably 1 for Nightmare Chica, 1 for Jack-O-Chica. - HistorianaPhilippiniana

What this means is that people have believed that the parrot on Mangle was a cupcake, and the eyes in BB's mouth were also a cupcake. Maybe it could I don't know.

Who Carl?

who's carl

13 Homer Simpson is Fredbear

This one actually made me laugh - LilRose

Another good theory - TeamRocket747

Most idiotic theory ever! - LionsHeart100

This has to be the weirdest FNAF theory ever. Paws down. I mean, what?! They're yellow and that's it. No more similarities

14 Freddy is Gay

excuse me - LionsHeart100

Sure, he does hide in the girls bathroom and I heard his chilling gir laugh, but still FREDDY IS A MALE!

The fan fiction told me

Ohhh yeah he is because I saw a fan made drawing of him and Bonnie "kissing" each other. - RainbowArtist191

17 Foxy is Darth Vader

I like how people aren't taking a joke. - TeamRocket747

Not funny. - LilRose

18 Fnaf 4 is a Dream of a Kid in a Coma

That is not true because I don't know I just know that it's not true

No not in the coma 1 2 3 were the coma the nightmares are hullucinations - Mefty

This is very true because the pills flowers and IV next to the bed

This is very true because next to the bed are pills

19 Fnaf 1,2 and 3 are just dreams of the fnaf 4 crying child

I won't accept it even if it's true. - LilRose

Y is this on the craziest theroies when this true - Mefty

SO true it makes sense because he is picturing his fathers work place because phone guy sounds EXACTLY the same in 1 and 2

1. At fnaf 4, you hear the alarm clock beeping, and then you play a minigame on the middle of the day.
2. Fnaf 1,2,3 phone guy has the same voice.
3. Before night 1, you see the fnaf 1 plushies. But, they are his friends. Weird
4. Some items on the vision of cameras change every time

20 Freddy is Mikes Mom

What! how I mean this is so dumb I don't mean to be some kind of troll but, come on! at least explain a little!

21 The Puppet is Purple Guy

That is so true! Purple Guy probably was Hitler

26 Toychica is a Guy

Kill the person who said this - Mefty

Hm someone burn this now - LionsHeart100

I don't think any of the animatronics have an assigned gender, they are robots anyway. - GameTheorist

Chica means a girl. Why would it be a guy? And she wears bikini looking bottoms. Why would that be true?

27 Freddy is Michael Scott

Who - Mefty

Da FRICK!? Michael Scott from The Office!?!?! NO!

28 Foxy can sing

Aww but no - Mefty

Iv'e come up with this theory because in the 2 or 3 night you can someone singing
Dum dum dum.It is unowned yet but could it be foxy

It would be hilarious if this was a reality, though.


29 Springtrap Isn't a Threat

The window is like really dirty so he probably didn't see u and when he did see u he was all like "Hey look it's a human! Hey buddy why r u here? "

ALL the phantoms are hallusinations...

Yea Springtrap just walks in casually and u overreact and u get scared to DEATH!

This is true. Springtrap is not a threat. Purple guy's spirit possessing Springtrap is a threat.

30 In FNaF 1, 2 night 6-7 and SL you are playing as Purple Guy

No sl = michael afton 1=mike 2=jeremy - Mefty

That makes sense

35 Balloon Boy is a figment of your head

How he steals your batteries - Mefty

... hi *me* "boy nope! " (swithes camera)

36 Endoskeleton is Dead

Which one? - Mefty

Well he's a robot. Robots don't have organs or brains, so it would pretty ridiculous that some one said he was dead. - RainbowArtist191

He isn't alive but he's not dead he's a robot

37 You are Golden Freddy

I kinda think Golden Freddy is Fredbear.


What I mean is that you become an animatronic sometime in the future. The Puppet sends animatronic you back in time to get you or something.

38 Fredbear is Nightmare

Nightmare might be nightmare fredbears gost? - Mefty

I will admit, I thought this one up(not really more rather I thought of it, not come up with it) I mean it looks like nightmare fredbear is just nightmare with golden paint on:l I haz a new theory, nightmare likes fredbear dun (please kill me)

39 Springtrap Doesn't Know You are There

Blah blah blah o whos there HEY WAS UPP - Mefty

Okay is it just or does he look surprised when he strolls in to the office. Plus he could literally just have learned the error of his ways and tries to save the child of which is just a voice you play to keep him away.
Another thing is he could just not see you when he looks through the window just saying.

40 There's a reason why the Purple Guy killed the children

Perhaps... - Mefty

It seemed that William's children died. In the novel Five Nights at Freddy's: The Silver Eyes, Charlie described him as shy and awkward. When he was wearing a Spring Bonnie suit, he seemed to be loved, so he killed them and trapped them so that he could keep them.

41 The Fnaf Franchise is All a Novel
42 Spider-Man is Foxy

Wow just wow - LionsHeart100

Now don't ruin my brother's childhood. - HistorianaPhilippiniana

What the this is so stupid how could a spidereven bite the metal

Foxy and Spider-Man might be the same person because they are both red. It can also be possible be Iron Man. I don’t know yet. But there is a possibility.

43 Charlie from the Books is the Puppet

Yeah the fandom says so - Mefty

This is wrong, because the purple guy murdered the girl who would soon be the puppet OUTSIDE the pizzeria, Charlie was murdered INSIDE.

In the books, she's Henry's daughter. In the true ending of fnaf 6, Henry calls the puppet his daughter.

44 Toy Bonnie is a Girl

No, if Toy Bonnie was a girl the scott would call him "she" not "he" - LionsHeart100

It's hard to tell because his face looks like a girl but his body doesn't

Well I think Toy Bonnie is a girl whether Scott says so or not.

I think you Bonnie is a boy

45 Games 1-3 didn't matter, they're a part of the child's nightmare

Ita true - Mefty

I'm pretty sure every game of FNAF's Matters... Just maybe not as equally.


It's true guys. True true true true true

46 In Five Nights at Freddy's: Sister Location, you are the Purple Guy's son.

True - Mefty

The boy you see in Five Nights at Freddy's 4's mini game, you see a crying boy�"that's you! When they started Circus Baby's Rental and Entertainment, you are an adult by now. Not only your supposed to fix them, but you have another job�"freeing your sister. Your father is the Purple Man, and he wanted you to free her from Circus Baby. Your sister got killed by Circus Baby. At the end of the game, you are now Ennard, an animatronic who was formed by the others.

Here is some proof from the Cutscene:

Mike : "Father. It's me, Michael. I did it. I found it. It was right where you said it would be. They were all there. They didn't recognize me at first but then they thought I was you. And I found her. I put her back together, just like you asked me to. She's free now. But something is wrong with me. I should be dead. But I'm not. I've been living in shadows. There is only one thing left for me to do now. I'm going to come find you. I'm going to come find you."

47 William Afton killed the children to experiment on them.

His own daughter died. He might have committed the murders to experiment on the children's souls so he could find a cure for death, saving his beloved little girl. What he didn't count on was the Marionette stuffing the dead kids in the robots before he could do anything.

48 Costume from Night 4 from FNaF:SL is Ennard's Costume.

First endoskeleton (with blue eyes) it can be from another "Principal" animatronic from Baby's Circus Pizza World, (but he had some malfunctions, so Mr. Afton and Henry put the first endoskeleton in baby and the costume in another place. But Henry suicided and he possed the Endoskeleton wit blue eyes. Before that the Baby with blue eyes killed the Mr. Afton's dauther named "Bite of 83'". And she is posseding Baby animatronic. Afther that Mr. Afton changed the endoskeleton and he builded from this endoskeleton another animatronics: F. Foxy: Legs, F.Freddy:Arms, Baby: chest and ballora: head and lower torso.). The first Endoskeleton have another name because Ennard=Endoskeleton(En)+ Innard(nard). And in Night 1,2 and 3 the mask is in Control Module, but when you are jumpscared by F.Foxy Baby put you in endoskeleton's costume and put the mask, because Baby tell you in N.4 : I put you in an old costume and the mask is opening in 4 parts, like ennard's

49 Funtime Foxy is a newer version of Lolbit

Other way round - Mefty

Ok so I’ve thought of this then debunked it becuase they are from the some game.

Evidence: Lolbit is never actually shown in person and his face never opens so this may result in damage or just an older version of FF.

Debunked: They’re from the same game, plus another theory is that Lolbit used to sell merchandise until he started scaring the kids and they shut him down and maybe built Funtime Foxy.

50 Sister Location Adult Theory

Let's hope people still don't believe this - LionsHeart100

So Sister Location is a "strip club for adults" just because it takes place underground. Wow. Whoever made this BS up really needs to stop smoking mushrooms. I don't know of ANYONE who would want to work or own a strip club underground where patrons and workers alike constantly are tense and worrying about floods and cave ins. In fact,NOBODY would even want to go there. They'd rather go to a strip club that's on top of a tall skyscraper. And also-why do some people only care about Ballora's boobs? She's a woman robot. I don't see anyone only caring about the female robots' boobs at the Disney parks, so why start focusing on a fictional animatronic lady? Her boobs aren't even that big.
