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!

What about the Puppet, Toy Bonnie, and Toy Chica Jumpscare (Toy Chica come her girl).

Well, my theory is that Foxy is a good guy he just gives you a heart attack and you die like that

I heared of this, I laughed so hard - SackofCheese

I believe that foxy is good because as you see in the first game foxy doesn't actually try to kill he is just in the doorway and his jaw is hanging loose which may explain the out of order sign on the curtain on his stage. I don't believe in the second game he's trying to hug you though. He was already out of order when he turned all old and his wires were hanging out in the second game so his programming was obviously all messed up. So if he was originally good in the first game the programming being messed probably just caused him to not be set what he was supposed to do.

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

It was either Freddy or Foxy. - SackofCheese

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

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

It was actually the bite of '83 it occurred on fredbears pizza a brother location as seen in fnaf 4 minigames it was caused by an early version of freddy fazbear it was a yellow version of freddy it was a springlock suit by the way I'm not talking about golden freddy

3 The Endoskeleton Belongs to the "Purple Guy".

I think it belongs to golden freddy - LaughingJokingNumbnuts

The purple guy is springtrap therefore not even having an endoskeleton sooo OF!


Ok, so many of these are so stupid, but I had to say something on this one. Purple guy is a human, he started decomposing from the inside because of ennard, as shown on secret cutscenes in fnaf 5. Which made him become purple.

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

5 The Purple Guy Isn't Purple

People are stupid.
I'm out. - LilRose

Then why is he called the purple guy? - SackofCheese

He is purple! comment

6 BB Has a Girl Friend

No they're sisters - TeamRocket747

The heck? - HistorianaPhilippiniana

The "girlfriend" is probably JJ,the Easter egg in fnaf 2 and the character in the ultimate custom night

Wouldn't that be Balloon Girl?

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)

8 Bonnie is Elsa from Frozen

What in the world!?! "let it go", this isn't true!

It is true because he makes my heart feel cool


Who the hell do you think you are

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

It is a hand mark from the poster of him ripping off his face do we all read the fnaf game manual the freddy files?

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

10 There's a Reason Behind Night 8

Were people living under a rock? - LilRose

There's a night 8? - Mefty

I am very ashamed to admit this, but I thought this theory was true and everyone thought that I was crazy.

Actually I kinda believe it

The Contenders

11 Fnaf Was Based On a Real Life Incident

Yeah it is

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

Yep. - SackofCheese

Just like the game five people were murdered

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's carl

Who Carl?

13 Homer Simpson is Fredbear

He doh the pizza doh

This one actually made me laugh - LilRose

Another good theory - TeamRocket747

Most idiotic theory ever! - LionsHeart100

14 Freddy is Gay

what - Crizz

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

15 Foxy is Darth Vader

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

Not funny. - LilRose

This doesn't make any sense - LionsHeart100

I love Star Wars and all, but what idiot made this theory? IT MAKES NO SENSE... wait is that what Scott WANTS us to think? -That it is stupid but it really is true? 0-0

16 Five Nights at Freddy's 4 is Just a Nightmare

More of a daymare because the nightmares are hallicinations - Mefty


no comment - LilRose


17 Funtime Foxy is Mangle


Nope, mangle and Funtime Foxy are different animatronics

NO THIS IS NOT TRUE. - DragonFire1o

That's not true because mangle dosint have the lines that funtime foxy dus

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

Why is this a 'dumb one'?

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

19 Foxy is a good guy

I hate that theory - LionsHeart100

Well Freddy Chica Bonnie Foxy Golden Freddy there all good guys. - MorlaTurtle8

They're all good guys. Including Foxy. - MorlaTurtle8

He isss - Mefty

20 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

21 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!

22 The Puppet is Purple Guy

That is so true! Purple Guy probably was Hitler

Nope his wife - Mefty

Purple Guy is Adolf Hitler - TeamRocket747

Not a chance!

23 The Phone Guy is the Purple Guy

They both died different ways. - TeamRocket747

Not true. - LilRose

Scott is ph guy william is pg - Mefty

Why do you people not Game Theory?

24 Foxy is phone guy

Oh my god Bonnie I will SLAP YOU - LilRose

Again scott is phone guy - Mefty

How is foxy foxy's favorite - Tyoshi

No way. - RainbowArtist191

25 Chica was a cheerleader

Maybe toy chica before she was stuffed in to a robot - Mefty

LOL who da heck made this theory? It is completely wrong but I COULD see chica being a cheerleader

"LETS GO PIZZA LETS GO *clap clap*" - TeamRocket747

My life is a lie.

26 Balloon Boy doesn't have an endoskeleton

He is just a slab of plastic

Ha prolly don't - Mefty

I heard that from PrettyGrumpyBear - LionsHeart100

This was confirmed, wasn't it? - HistorianaPhilippiniana

1 Comment
27 Chica is a Cheeto

Yep she is

Yup. no question.

28 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

Who is Toychica? Toy Chica is a female, I mean she wears pink panties and has pink cheeks. And she has a curvy body. It's definitely female. So is Toychica a male? Is this even a character?

29 Freddy is Michael Scott

Who - Mefty

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

30 Foxy can sing

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

Aww but no - Mefty

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


31 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.

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

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

what!? - Mefty

So Michael Afton = Fritz Smith? - TeamRocket747

That makes sense

33 The Bite of 83 Killed the Crying Child

There were two bites. Bite of 83' and bite of 87'.

Not bite of 87

34 Freddy is a Robot

They all are - Mefty

Wow I din't know that! *sarcasm* - ElSherlock

Nice job. *claps/congratulates sarcastically* - GameTheorist

Good work genius

35 Foxy Can Be Warning You of Freddy

Sometimes - Mefty



Yes. mabe the pirate song is foxy telling you in song... to check the cameras. I KNEW FOXYS A GOOD GUY!

36 Balloon Boy is a figment of your head

How he steals your batteries - Mefty

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

37 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

38 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.

39 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)

40 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.

41 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.

42 The Fnaf Franchise is All a Novel
43 Sister Location Adult Theory

Whoever made this up needs to lay off the alcohol.

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.

NANI GA FAKKU? SERIOUSLY? - HistorianaPhilippiniana

44 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.

45 They Never Died Because Fire Doesn't Burn All Metal

I don't think Fnaf 6's fire "killed" the animatronic since fire can burn metal but it takes a while and though their outside costume would be burnt not the endoskeleton

46 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.

47 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

I think you Bonnie is a boy

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

48 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

49 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."

50 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.
