2023.06.04 07:29 gam3rkingali Please give me advice on wanting to play fnaf 1 but being terrified of horror games. I only made it two mins in before I got off

As the title says would like to play FNAF 1 but I am too scared. I downloaded it yesterday and got scared 5 seconds in when the title screen appeared. I've never watched any playthroughs or gameplay videos because I want to go in completely blind. I am playing on console ps5 and I am scared because I've never played a horror game where I can't move and also I don't know how to play the game. So when it starts and all I can do is look left right and push random buttons to open doors i am terrified knowing that I am a sitting duck waiting to get scared. Can someone give me some controls of the ps5 version and typically how it plays without spoilers. I am the type of person who has only seen 1 horror movie in my life and have a jumpscare phobia is there anyway I can play this game. I know this is an iconic horror game and I would love to experience it.
P.Si am a 20 year old man.

2023.06.04 05:31 therealpatato21 FNAF 1 on Scratch

So, I'm working on a little something. I'm recreating FNAF 1 in Scratch. All I have done right now is the title screen, but I felt like I did it really well. Let me know what you think and if I should continue work on it.
Here's the plan for if I do continue:
  1. Create the time system for the nights. No function for anything yet.
  2. The office. Getting the fan going.
  3. Doors and lights. Get them working.
  4. Power. Now that I can test it.
  5. Camera panel, just getting the panel to flip up.
  6. One of the biggest parts, the camera system. No animatronics, yet.
  7. The hardest part, I think, the animatronics.
Here's the link if you wanna see the title screen.
The jumpscares are in the code, but can't be used at the moment. Check it out and tell me what you think of my work so far.

I can handle some scares but maybe one that its in the middle, i found a bit fun slender but yeah, i was wondering about gnaf help wanted or something idk, im not an expert in this games XD, i would like some help from the veterans out here.

2023.05.31 21:45 SlicedGameStudios Request for a new FNAF Fan Game

Hello everyone!
I'm Nick, an italian indie game developer that love to hide is name behind another name: "Sliced Games Studios"...
So, I'm working on a new FNAF Fan Game, and seriously... this is a big one. In fact if there is something that I HATE about me is making a project with a big idea and then releasing something that is far from the original concept. But with this game things will be different.
First of all I want to explain why I am making another FNAF Fan Game (jeez you might think: "There are thousands of FNAF Fan games and this guy want to create another one"). The fact is that I want to create a new story, new teasers, new lore, new theories and all the stuffs that the original FNAF did back in 2014.
And now you are probably thinking: "So what is the name of this game? How it will be connected to the original FNAF series? When we will see this game?", and the answers are:
1) The game is called: "Under the Blankets"
2) The game is set in the FNAF multiverse so, same characters (some new ones too), different story. This means tons of new easter eggs in the game that will allow you to understand this new story.
3) Of course the game is still working in progress and really far from the final release, but I'm here to listen you: the community of FNAF...
Yeah I really care about the community because I want to make a game that will drive you crazy when the teasers and the first images are released, that will make you jump off your seat when you receive a jumpscare and at least a game that you really like, that makes you feel the same emotions as when in 2014 (or even later depending on you) you have for the first time opened that file called: fivenightsatfreddys.exe.
So, people, share your thoughts, share your ideas because I'm here and I'm listening...
Thank you everyone, and also thank you Scott...

2023.05.31 20:34 VideoGameChronology Why Golden Freddy Is Practically Unsolvable

This is gonna be a long one, so, prepare.
With the recent dump of trailers, I got pulled back into this story and wanted to take another crack at this story. I decided to try and solidify my belief on Golden Freddy, Cassidy, BV, TOYSNHK, and Andrew as they have always stood out to me as unsolvable but why?
Firstly, why are these characters even important? Well, that's a simple answer, because the timeline basically relies on what Golden Freddy theory you believe. There are tons of them, a lot of which have ended up mixing with eachother in weird ways. These theories effect how the story is viewed and how events happen.
So, let's look at Golden Freddy throughout the games and see the theory evolution.
Starting in FNAF 1, Golden Freddy was a rare easter egg where a Freddy poster would change to a Golden Freddy poster leading to him appearing in your room with a girl's giggle causing "It's Me" hallucinations and crashing your game. Another secret in this game would introduce us to the MCI, an event where a man dressed as one of the characters and lured 5 kids to back room, killing them and stuffing them into suits. There were 5 kids and 5 characters, so it was pretty obvious that the 5th child was Golden Freddy.
That theory stayed true in FNAF 2 and was practically proven by Give Gifts Give Life showing a 5th child in the final frame of that minigame before Golden Freddy's jumpscare. It continued to be believed in FNAF 3 with more proof being given thanks to Happiest Day showing Golden Freddy as connected to the other 4 kids, needing to give cake to the first 4 before freeing all 5 of them plus The Puppet.
It seemed pretty obvious that the 5th MCI kid was Golden Freddy, then FNAF 4 happened. FNAF 4 introduced a new character, the Crying Child/Bite Victim. BV was a young boy that saw an event that made him scared of the animatronics. He was constantly bullied by his older brother leading to his death at his own birthday party in the Bite of '83. Why did this complicate things? Because BV had a major connection to Happiest Day with his birthday essentially being a reflection of Happiest Day. Near identical table locations, same balloon colors, and same kids with masks. To many, it heavily implied that BV was Golden Freddy and Happiest Day was there to give BV the birthday he never had.
Just one problem with that, the 5th MCI kid was Golden Freddy. The first instinct was the rush to the idea that either BV was the 5th MCI kid or that the 5th MCI kid was actually The Puppet and they're closely connected to the other kids. There were two different arguments for BV5th at the time.
Argument 1: The Kids Disppeared, Nothing Definitively Stated They Were All Killed By Purple Guy
Essentially this theory went that no one ever told anyone what happened to BV, instead hiding his body technically making him a missing child. This theory had problems though, for one, the newspapers state the kids disappeared at Freddy's and the FNAF 4 location is clearly Fredbear's, there's not a single Freddy's character shown, even out front the mascot is shown as Fredbear. Secondly, we do see all five of the MCI kids died at Freddy's in Foxy Go Go Go.
This was a common rebuttal and was typically followed with:
Argument 2: The Puppet was the 5th Child, Nothing States That Golden Freddy was the 5th
This one was better, I mean, Golden Freddy has always been the odd man out, way more paranormal than the others, wasn't there in Give Gifts until the last frame, and was from a completely different era of animatronics, the springlock era. However, there were still problems, namely that Scott would go on to say that we pretty much solved FNAF 1-3 meaning the 5th child was likely Golden Freddy.
Another less common argument was the idea that BV died twice, once in the Bite and again in the MCI or the reverse depending on when they thought the MCI happened relative to the Bite. This one was out there, claiming that he somehow survived his first death (typically with people stating you can live a Bite to the frontal lobe or that maybe he wasn't stuffed in a suit) or that he did die but was revived by The Puppet known for giving life. Problem with the second one is that there was little proof of revival even being a thing at this point, the only time people came back to life were as animatronics. The first one was more likely but still a bit of a stretch to claim that a child would survive any of those injuries.
Despite the problems, the evidence towards BV becoming Golden Freddy was considered too solid for there to be another answer, having him literally be the birthday boy of a party mirroring Happiest Day where Golden Freddy was the birthday boy seemed huge. That's not to say there weren't other theories, there were tons of them, but him being Golden Freddy was the most largely accepted one with the main argument being that The Puppet was the 5th child.
FNAF World's release only further fueled the belief in GoldenVictim as FNAF World linked BV's death directly to Happiest Day, no one could really claim at that point that connections didn't exist besides just saying that FNAF World wasn't canon.
Silver Eyes in the other hand told us that Michael, a child of the MCI, was Golden Freddy which fueled the belief on the opposite side but when the book was confirmed out of universe and stated to not be used to the solve the lore, that evidence seemed gone.
Sister Location did nothing to help either theory but when Scott said that MatPat got his FNAF 1-SL timeline mostly correct people felt strengthened in their belief that BV was Golden Freddy while others pointed out that Scott never confirmed and it could be something Mat for wrong.
FFPS came out and Golden Freddy was only brought up in discussion about the hidden grave and a drawing people thought might be hinting to the Afton Family with BV as a bear. This just became additional pieces of evidence to each side's argument but BV was still prevailing.
Then the Logbook happened and things got messy. The Logbook was giving hints that the name of Golden Freddy would be revealed if you solved the "My Name" puzzle. When it was solved, the name was revealed as Cassidy. Why was this important? Because Cassidy was a character in the books, a character that was female with dark hair. BV was male with brown hair. Many GoldenVictimers were quick to defend their theory stating that Scott said the books should be ignored and that Cassidy could very well be a BV in the games, using name etymology to back it up by saying Cassidy is a unisex name. But the other was pointing out two things:
1: Scott has been adding more book stuff to the games in FFPS with Henry, Charlie, Susie, Remnant, etc. So, it isn't a stretch that Scott would make Cassidy the same as she was in the books.
2: The logbook has The Puppet giving cake to a girl with black hair on a page about Happiest Day
These came with rebuttals. For the first one, people pointed out that if Scott was using Cassidy like in the books, Cassidy wouldn't be Golden Freddy. For the second one, people claimed that it might not actually be an important detail and that it wasn't actually showing Happiest Day.
As time went on, more and more people became convinced that Cassidy was female while GoldenVictimers either went to believe in CassidyVictim or they tried to find other ways for BV to be Golden Freddy while Cassidy can also be Golden Freddy. The GoldenDuo we know today was a little different, instead of there being two souls in Golden Freddy, it was instead that there were to Golden Freddys, typically split up as FNAF 1 GF and FNAF 2 GF.
Thanks to the Logbook, another Bite Victim theory was gaining traction, MikeVictim, the theory that BiteVictim died and was revived either as a normal human or a robot becoming Michael. Unlike BV5th, this theory was believed by MatPat meaning, despite being very similar in content, this theory was more well liked than BV5th. However, people with different beliefs on who Mike and Bite Victim were started trying to debunk this idea with the idea of there being two ghosts inhabiting the Logbook, the questioner being Cassidy and the answerer being BV with Mike just being there. This argument still goes on today between the few that still believe in MikeVictim and those that don't and the Logbook has basically become the most tackled topic when conversating about basically any Bite Victim or Michael Afton theory.
UCN mixed the pot even further and problems for CassiShe, CassidyVictim, and GoldenVictim were arriving to the surface. In UCN we played as someone trapped in some kind of purgatory, stuck in here by someone who they shouldn't have killed, someone that is shown in OMC's minigame and the final cutscene to be Golden Freddy. The ideas were that we played as either William or Michael and who we played as was basically the deciding factor of whether or not Golden Freddy was Cassidy or BV.
GoldenVictim enjoyers had a lot more on their side this time around, Golden Freddy was constantly referred to as male, Bear of Vengeance seems to be connected to BV and FoxyBro, the references to FNAF World seemed to link back to BV, the OMC minigame where you drown in the lake being similar to an ending in FNAF World leading you to a Happiest Day with 3 figures that people though could be the Afton children.
People who believed Cassidy wasn't Bite Victim but was Golden Freddy were suddenly split into CassiShe and CassiHe. Because of the male pronouns, people switched to Cassidy being male only for GoldenVictimers who before claimed that the books shouldn't matter began claiming that Cassidy is a girl because of the books with CassiHe believers saying that the books and games are different continuities so that doesn't matter.
CassiShe on the other hand stuck with their guns and tried to figure out how the male pronouns and Male child face could be ignored or answered. The argument was typically that they were referring to the suit, not the actual child or that the references to gender didn't matter as it was supposed to be a mystery.
However, some theorists believed GoldenCassidy but thought Mike was the protagonist and some theorists believed in GoldenVictim but thought William was the protagonist. This led to them and other theorists coming up with the idea that TOYSNHK wasn't Golden Freddy at all but could maybe be another character.
This remained a major talking point until the Fazbear Frights series for three reasons.
Reason #1: Man in Room 1280
Man in Room 1280 heavily implied William Afton was the person being tortured by Andrew, the book equivalent of Golden Freddy as seen in The New Kid. This led to the community basically seeing WillHell as a fact leading to CassiShe, CassiHe, and TOYSNHK being someone else being the last theories when it came to UCN.
Reason #2: Multiple Souls In One Body
One of the epilogues showed that the Stitchwraith was inhabited by a kid named Jake and another kid named Andrew. Andrew had been torturing a man that did him wrong, not letting him die, latching onto his soul, similarly to TOYSNHK. This led to people comparing Andrew to TOYSNHK and Golden Freddy and also led to modern day GoldenDuo. In the book, it's described that if multiple souls inhabit a body, some of their senses are gone like how Andrew couldn't see anything but Jake could. This was compared to a line in the Logbook some thought BV said, "I can't see".
People took this to mean that BV was in an animatronic with someone else. This created GoldenDuo, the idea that both Cassidy and BV were Golden Freddy together.
Reason #3: StitchlineGames
Scott had said that the books would link to the games and some took that as meaning that certain stories would be in game continuity. This led to the theory StitchlineGames where the StitchwraithStingers and the stories connected to them were all in continuity with the games. This meant that Andrew was considered by many to be Golden Freddy and TOYSNHK.
These last 2 had their rebuttals. For the 2nd one, people had a problem with GoldenDuo because they felt it lacked any real evidence. Every time we saw Golden Freddy it has always been with one soul, not just in the games but in the books aswell, and the film also features only 5 kids with one of them likely being Golden Freddy. For those who thought Golden Freddy was a ghost, they also questioned if two souls could merge into one without the metal Endoskeleton for them to share in possession.
For the 3rd, some just didn't believe the Stitchwraith stories were in continuity, mainly because they felt like parallels. The events in the books all felt like they sorta rehashed things seen in the games as if to tell us something about those events through the experiences of non-related characters. There were tons of stories with similar topics like family, divorced parents, sibling relationships, toys to monitor kids, sick children, agony, etc. Some also felt that Andrew would be a completely pointless inclusion as his only role would be in the Stitchwraith stories and as TOYSNHK.
And that's kinda where things have left off and it becomes clear why a true answer is impossible. It seems mostly agreed at this point that Cassidy is Golden Freddy, that has kind of stayed true since the Logbook released with some exceptions. The problem is Cassidy themselves has so many different forms to them. Some think they're female, some think they're male, and some think they're the Bite Victim. Ontop of that, BV is very closely connected to Golden Freddy in ways that some can't really ignore. Some have said that those connections are to Happiest Day, not exactly to Golden Freddy. The problem with Bite Victim is that he never appears after FNAF World, it isn't confirmed he's even in the Logbook. Then there's Andrew which is a perfect example of Scott just not telling us stuff straight. Out of everything that needs to be confirmed, the canonicity of certain media needs to be confirmed, you can't just release 11 books of stories with questionable canonicity and then say that some of them may or may not be in continuity. Your belief in Andrew purely relies on your thoughts of Fazbear Frights being in continuity.
Golden Freddy is an impossible mystery because the candidates we're given aren't mentioned at all besides Cassidy. BV appears in one game where he's the focal point, is the reason you make the pieces in FNAF World, and then he vanishes off the face of the earth, reduced to references. Andrew makes only a few appearances in the FF books but he's never mentioned before or after those books. Not only that but BV and Andrew are practically pointless to the story if they are Golden Freddy because what does BV do besides maybe get freed in Happiest Day and what does Andrew do outside of Frights besides be TOYSNHK.
It might be simple to say Cassidy is Goldem Freddy and leave at that but even Cassidy has parts that don't quite make sense, specifically from UCN with the emphasis on TOYSNHK being male and CassiHe's only evidence is that TOYSNHK is Golden Freddy, Cassidy is Golden Freddy, TOYSNHK is Male, Cassidy is Male. That really isn't that much evidence.
Each and everyone of these theories require evidence to be removed or ignored, some of them require leaps in logic, some rely on retcons, and some rely on bad storytelling. This, to me, makes Golden Freddy, and his candidates, practically impossible to solve.

2023.05.31 16:05 QubeTICB202 Lore implications of the new Help Wanted game

I went through it frame by frame, with and without contrast and brightness modifiers, video doesn't hide anything. In terms of what the video actually shows, we see that:

At 6.18 seconds we see two animatronics. One of them looks to be toy bonnie, but the other one I can't identify. If we take what we remember from Help Wanted 1, we know that this would make sense because of Funtime Freddy, who has a toy bonnie on his arm, though I haven't seen the second, more purple tinted one.
We can also see a portrait of Circus BB, and the ballora jumpscare plus the funtime freddy reference leads me to believe that all the original characters from sister location are here.
This does bring up some interesting questions though, like:
It can't still be Michael we play as, because we know that he got scooped and was used as an escape for Ennard in the original sister location. So who's the next candidate for who we play as? if we assume it's like HW1, where the fact you're playing a game is part of the story, beta tester would be the obvious choice, but we don't know if the game is still from the development team for Help Wanted or if it's from the new one the tapes talked about. it's also completely possible the game is developed entirely separately from Fazbear Entertainment, and that the indie developer did it on their own.

Another question, who is the character on the bottom left of the poster? It looks to be also a bunny, perhaps an old version of bonnie, which would make sense if Fazbear Entertainment was the one developing the game, as HW 1 had versions of pretty much all the characters.
There's one looming problem with this explanation though, which is: How does the company know the events that Michael experienced in Sister Location? More, how do they even know that the facility exists?
There is the possibility that it's like the other FNaF games, where you're playing real events, but that still leaves the question of who we play as. It's possible we play as a technician, one of the ones in the original, but if we're playing real events, that means it comes in timeline before the original sister location.

Would like to hear any other speculation on the trailer

2023.05.31 08:50 Highwave-Vortex So I had a dream last night

Since none of my friends are really fnaf fans and I can't do game design to save my life, I thought you lot would find this interesting.
So this took place as a mashup of FNAF4, Joy of Creation, The Return to Bloody Nights and Security Breach with bits of My House.wad Doom mod, some of the FNAF VHS tapes and other games/bits I've seen.
The concept seemed to be: you play as a child (I think Gregory from Security Breach) who's gone to Afton's house to uncover the mysteries of what's going on in all of this and his house is full of anamatronics.
Some of these anamatronics are peaceful and are trying to help you solve what's going on and get their soul freed while others are just straight up hostile. I don't think there was a main gameplay loop like the other games but I remember a segment of having to soothe either an anamatronic or a person affected by all this really up close and personal (or you get jumpscared) and a chase sequence through what felt like neverending rooms and corridors while answering quiz questions (a little weird but whatever, this was close to the end aha).
Another detail was that one of the nightmare anamatronics pulled you through some corridovent thing to get to the nightmare mode menu.
Anyway I'm glad it was light when I woke up because that probably would've fucked me up if it was 2am instead or something. Also the Return to Bloody Nights jumpscare screams are horrifying.
Anyway, have a nice day :)

2023.05.29 05:30 Mikeywise14 10 reasons FNAF is my favorite franchise

  1. unlikely source
scott cawthon is a conservative christian from texas who made christian games and an animated adaptation of the pilgrims progress. you would not think he would make the most popular teen horror franchise of the modern age.
  1. humble and self-aware origins
scott made a kids game that was criticized for the character designs looking robotic and uncanny. this inspired him to make fnaf in a last ditch effort at game designing, and it paid off big time.
  1. the idea alone is god tier
a Chuck E. Cheese place by itself has a lot of potential for magic and horror, but you throw in haunted anamontronics, the place being worn down, AND the consequence of being stuffed into a suit and grinded by the gears if you fair, and you got the perfect mixture for scares and creativity (SOOOOO much creativity, which will be further explored below).
  1. The little details
Besides lore clues (more on lore later), you have details like the celebration poster, foxy being able to do a full sprint despite most of the footage of the anamontronics being standstill images, the build up to security breach by adding more and more voicework in each game, the jumpscare scream in FNAF 1 being a sound from an Alien knockoff film, and so many more incredible details and things to notice!
  1. It’s SO weird!
This series is known for going to bonkers levels in storytelling, and i LOVE it for that. There are Atari minigames where a purple guy goes into a bunny suit and bleeds out, ghost children possessing anamontronics, a man being scooped alive and an ectoskeleton taking over his body (yet when it leaves hes still alive), and a freaking AI soul transfer in the steel wool era!
  1. All the traumatizing, rated R details
Where to even start?! Child murder where the bodies get stuffed into anamontronics. The aforementioned bunny suit minigame, the robots getting so disfigured and worn down, the aforementioned scooping, skin suit, and the skin being alive despite no organs, the aforementioned consequences of failure, william’s (kind of) hidden screams in literal hell, and so much more! Speaking of which...
  1. There’s a game set in actual hell
Self explanatory; Scott went “screw it” and made a game set in hell where the consequences of losing are anamontronics torturing and mocking you.
  1. The humor
OH. MY. GOD. the humor is glorious. FNAF world is itself a giant troll, the certificate of insanity, the vampire soap opera, a lot of jokes in security breach (“a mr. Hippo fridge magnet?” “I am.... so sorry gregory). If horror comedies had more of THIS humor style, i be in heaven.
  1. The fandom being equally fantastic and pure cringe
The fandom has imaginative, creative, and hilarious fans... while also fans who make fanart of Chuck E and freddy having a baby together (i sware i saw that).
  1. It is horror’s lord of the rings
How many books are in the franchise? How many lore clues are in the games? How many wild concepts have been done? Matpat literally gained a fanbase over theorizing the lore of this franchise! For horror it’s unprecedented.
Feel free to add your own points or additions to the above in the comments below, and remember, excotic butters...

2023.05.29 04:34 dandelilons UPO: The FNAF 3 Springtrap jumpscare is scary.

I always only hear of people saying that it's one of, if not, the worst jumpscares in all of the games but when I was a kid, in my FNAF phase, watching every FNAF gameplay video I could find-- I found Springtrap's jumpscare terrifying.
Other's thoughts: Everyone talks about how it's one of/the least scary jumpscares in all the games. They say that it's just all around lacking (and to be fair it is...). It's just a short animation of Springtrap slithering towards you with his loud scream. The only scare from it is the sudden loud noise, which that is just a cheap scare. Not even much to say here just because of how little there is to say about it.
Personal thoughts: I think it also has to do with what Springtrap is as a character... a sick and twisted child murderer just rotting inside of the spring lock suit. It's not just GHOSTS this time, kid ghosts, it's a full ass man with his guts visible and spilling out and his body is actually A PART of this suit, vs. the children's bodies just being shoved into the other suits.
I can clearly remember always finding the jumpscare so scary... and unsettling due to the way he moves. He doesn't move robotically like the others, he moves more fluidly (because he's not a robot !) and I guess it was just really unsettling to watch after being used to all of these in-your-face scares. It was a person. A rotting, vile man.

As a long-time fnaf fan (I was present at the height of the first 4 games and loved watching it all) one thing bothers me a lot with Fnaf confirmed or "officially resolved" things, one of them is this:
The bite of 83 and 87.
I can't get over the fact that a kid had his head crushed by an animatronic onstage on his birthday and 4 years later no one remembers. The guy on the phone doesn't even mention it, you can tell it's company policy to remove the absurd stain it would bring on the franchise and that makes sense! but how does this apply to good old FNAF 1? I mean why does the phone guy only mention one of the two accidents?
I remember perfectly, I know it seems excessively nostalgic on my part, but when golden freddy (I know it's fredbear) seemed to have been revealed as the author of the bite I thought it was a great moment for the saga. All the tips, when lining up 1987 in custom nights he gave you jumpscares, he was abandoned and dismantled from the first game, it made so much sense.
When this 83 bite story went official in fandom i was completely confused, what about the fnaf 4 teasers mentioning 87? the game files with that number? 83 because the television in the crying childs living room said 83? what if it was the creation date of the tv show about the characters? the opening date of the restaurant, anything else? I wondered how people took it so easy.

With that being said, I remind you again that this is just a rant from a fan who has been around for a long time... I have more to say about this, if anyone has identified with this opinion at all please let me know, I want to know if I'm alone in this...
I actually have more things to discuss in this subreddit but something tells me if I expose too much my discontent with some "sacred" theories I might be banned or something.

The Crying Child From FNAF4 Possesses Balloon Boy
OK, so I guess the one thing that I should probably make clear to begin with is that this is NOT a joke.
Just hear me out! That’s all I ask!
I know that a lot of things about this don’t seem to make sense at first, and I can explain everything. In this post, I will go over what the commonality between BB and the Crying Child is, how BB existed in 1983, how the crying child possessed BB to begin with, and what the purpose of the Crying Child possessing BB is.
Let’s start with this explanation:
BB has been misunderstood. Beyond superficial appearances, there is someone who is closer to the crying child than people give any credit for.
I think this is as good a start as any.
I think the first misunderstanding is BB’s emotional state. Like, I know a lot of people in the community make art or headcanons or jokes or stuff: that’s one thing, but, in debating the lore, as in discussing the actual canon, I have, I kid you not, seen other theorists write BB off based off of the expression carved into his face. Crying Child or not, the kid in BB in any case cannot be any happier than the others over this situation!
Some people don’t like that he laughs at us during gameplay, but can we really take his laugh at face value? He laughs when nobody is there. He says “Hi” and “Hello” when nobody is around. If BB is trying to scream or cry, then what’s stopping THAT from just coming out as a laugh, too? Can we really just say BB is as carefree as he looks? No, we cannot.
There’s more to BB in FNAF2 than meets the eye. And, rest assured, I WILL dig into that later this post.
But before that, you might be wondering,
But before that, most of you probably have some other pressing questions that we ought to get out of the way first. “Did BB actually exist in 1983?” “How would the crying child possess BB, and why?” “What evidence is there that singles out BB as a better candidate for who the crying child possesses So let’s get on with that.
I have embedded a lot of links in this post, generally to provide an expanded explanation of whatever point I’m making at the time. So if you have a question for me, check and see if I have a link embedded in the relevant portion of this theory, and give the linked post a read! Thank you!

Did BB exist in 1983? Isn’t he a toy?

Well, let’s start this by explaining in two words:

Nightmare BB!

Nightmare BB is the only one of the Halloween animatronics to be canon, as singled out by Scott here:

This theory is going off the idea that the Crying Child was the one that had the Nightmares and thus had to have seen Nightmare Balloon Boy.
There’s a strong amount of evidence too: I’m fairly certain the main reason for believing that anyone besides the crying child had the Nightmares was the logbook, but I’ve found inconsistencies in it.
The Steam Page clearly says that we are playing as the crying child during the night segments,
Fredbear plush and the other plushies saying “We are still your friends” makes a lot more sense if the crying child had just finished being tormented by Nightmarish versions of them,
The minigames with the child parallel the gameplay directly: Fredbear attacks the night before the child is bitten, and Foxy begins attacking the night after we first see FoxyBro’s jumpscare.
Finally, while Golden Freddy is not the crying child, the only way the Nightmares would have gotten into UCN is if the crying child told TOYSNHK about them and showed him what they look like.
Furthermore, Nightmare Fredbear’s UCN dialogue directly references the crying child. (Such as “We know who are friends are, and you are not one of them!” and “Let me put you back together…so I can tear you apart again”. Nightmare Fredbear. The head of the Nightmares. Only references the crying child in his dialogue.
So in conclusion, the evidence that the crying child had the nightmares is quite strong, and the only thing that contradicts has inconsistencies of its own. There’s a good case to be made here.
And that means that, since Nightmare BB is canon, the crying child saw Nightmare BB at one point and thus Balloon Boy has to exist.
But, if you still don’t believe me, there’s more proof that Balloon Boy existed in 1983:

The Staffbot Table

The owner of the StaffBot table is none other than Charlie, based on the fact that the door to it is clearly named “Charlie Door” in the files.

I think that from this, we can logically say that Charlie created the Staffbot table, selecting five staffbots to surround a poster of Fredbear’s.
Incidentally, these bots can all be linked to Fredbear's somehow:
The magician bot, with his nice hat and tie, relates to Fredbear.
The headless bot is the crying child himself, who was bitten by Fredbear.
The Circus Baby bot relates back to Circus Baby’s doppelganger, found outside of Fredbear’s.
And lastly, the nanny, the head of the table, would probably represent Charlie herself, the unofficial leader and protector of the missing children.
And finally, the server bot: a dead ringer for BB. All part of a circle surrounding a Fredbear’s poster. I, therefore, believe that this is a sign Balloon Boy was at Fredbear’s as well, nicely corroborating Nightmare BB’s canonicity.

Curse of Dreadbear

Also, while Curse of Dreadbear certainly has animatronics appearing outside of 1983, I would specifically like to bring your attention to the plushkins and their masks, which are of:Freddy, Chica, Foxy, and…Balloon Boy?You would expect this quartet to have Bonnie, to make a whole member of the OG four. If BB was made in 1987, this makes the masks all the more out of place. It’s a subtle sign that, like the Withereds, BB predates the toy’s existence.

What about SaveThem?

What about SAVETHEM? Why would BB’s possession backstory take place in a minigame he never appears in?

There are other possibilities for the remaining child, Shadow Bonnie (who I do think is a spirit) or Endo-02, etc…because there’s just too much pointing to BBVictim for me.

Process of Elimination

But this is just the first step: You’ve seen how BB is an option, but I still need to show you that BB is the option.
So now that we’ve established BB exists in 1983, we can add him to the list of animatronics we know existed in 1983. This list goes like this:Fredbear
Spring Bonnie
The Puppet
Golden Freddy
And then we can do this:Fredbear
Spring Bonnie (William Afton)
The Puppet (Charlie Emily)
BBFreddy (MCI Kid)
Bonnie(MCI Kid)
Chica (MCI Kid)
Foxy(MCI Kid)
Golden Freddy(MCI Kid)
Looking at the two final choices, while it may be tempting to choose Fredbear, I ask: what would be the point? Where has Fredbear figured into the actual lore at any point after crushing the crying child’s head? Aside from UCN, we have never seen Fredbear ever again after this. If the crying child possessed Fredbear, that would be it for the protagonist of FNAF4.
But one of the hints Scott gave was “Four Games, One Story”. So looking at the context of the franchise as a whole, especially in the context of the first four games, Fredbear doesn’t show up at all. Golden Freddy does, but he’s not Fredbear, and he’s already possessed. And even if you are of the “Golden Freddy is Fredbear” camp, well, Golden Freddy is already possessed.
But if the crying child, whom FNAF4 centers on, plays a role in this one story of four games, then why would he be Fredbear? Fredbear only debuts in FNAF4, if the crying child possessed him then that would mean that while everything else is happening, he’s either been long-scrapped or is just rotting alone in an abandoned diner…yeah, I don’t think he’s Fredbear.
Also, the crying child FEARS Fredbear! He had to be dragged to Fredbear kicking and screaming. In what world would his ghost willingly be attached to Fredbear after death?But then we have BB. The crying child did have nightmares about BB too, (which is a key way to verify how to prove BB is in 1983) but there are some signs that the crying child’s fear of BB is much less severe:
  1. Nightmare BB’s jumpscare isn’t deadly.
  2. Nightmare BB can provide help to the player.
And the role BB plays in the franchise is actually pretty big, especially within the first four games: He helps with Happiest Day in FNAF3. His voice is a game mechanic, also in FNAF3. He is canon as a Nightmare in FNAF4. All these things and more I will touch on. BBVictim is more than possible: it works.

How did the Crying Child Possess BB?

Now, let’s answer some critical questions about how The Crying Child would possess BB and why.
There are some theories about HOW possession works, involving “remnant”, and about pain following flesh, but remember, the only book series Scott ever said we could use to solve the games was Fazbear’s Frights. For that reason, I will leave the books out of this reasoning. Does remnant exist in the games? Yes. Does it play any kind of role in any FNAF4?
Not really, as Remnant wasn’t mentioned at all in any of the games until FFPS.
Also, I may repeat this a lot, but remember, whatever is in FNAF1 - 4 we should be able to reason out without outside help. I’m gonna use evidence in later games, of course, but if the evidence is only found in books / later games, then we should be careful. Since this post is focused on solving FNAF4 and not after.
We know very little about how possession works in reality. Let me show you what we DO know for certain: and how it makes it entirely possible for CC to possess BB.
Focusing on 1 - 4,
We learn:A) The puppet can tether souls to others
  1. The puppet appears to be more powerful than the others regarding this ability (Give Gifts, Give Life is the only known example of someone tethering someone else’s soul to an object.
B) No contact possession is possible.
SO YES the crying child can die in the hospital and reach a Fazbear Establishment from there.
Quick Add: From what we see in FFPS, the sixth FNAF game, while remnant is clearly connected to possession, it doesn’t really add any rules: we don’t know where it comes from, how you get it, or anything - just that it attached Mike’s soul to his rotting body and that heat weakens its power, nothing that contradicts the simple rules above.
So to recap: No contact possession is possible, Puppet can help other kids possess stuff…
This works for BBVictim.

What is Charlie’s Role in All This?

The puppet is an especially strong player in the process of CC possessing an animatronic, even though, yes, The Fredbear Plush is the one who says they will put the crying child together.
But, here’s the thing: Charlie is the Fredbear Plush! I definitely shouldn’t lose my fellow Charlieplushers on this subreddit :D
But for the uninitiated, you are either welcome to look at this Charlieplush master post here, while I will lay down the basics here.
Charlie has always been shown to be an especially capable spirit. She is the only ghost shown to help other children possess animatronics. Phone Guy calls her out as “always thinking”, and “can go anywhere”.
In general, I’m trying to say that Charlie may have additional or stronger abilities than the other spirits, like temporarily possessing a Fredbear plushie to watch over a kid who clearly needs her help.
Plus she can leave her body, which would help her temporarily possess the plush.
Willplush falls flat given the plush speaks when Will is nowhere near the private room, helps out William’s victims by planning Happiest Day in FNAF World, and has strange periods of time when its eyes are unlit and unlit (almost as if whatever is controlling has periods of “entering” and “leaving” it…like, say, the ghost Charlie possessing it?)
With that in mind, with the “core four” games in mind, Charlie, and ONLY Charlie works as the Fredbear Plush.

The Crying Child/BB in FNAF World

But there’s another connection I need to go through: FNAF World. The crying child possessing BB also covers CC’s role enigmatic role in FNAF World.
We all know about the opening where two disembodied glowing eyes tell someone “I will put you back together” and later, “We are still your friends.”Clearly, the plush is speaking to the crying child.
However, there is more we can learn about this scene.
So, you know how FNAF2 ambiance (CMPTR_LOW_TECH_STAT) plays in the opening of FNAF World, as well as the clock ending?This subtle detail explains a lot about FNAF World…to me, it says that the opening and clock ending take place in 1987, in the FNAF2 building.
This makes perfect sense if the crying child is Balloon Boy, and the Fredbear plush is Charlie.
But what does Charlie mean by “I will you back together?” the same thing she meant back in 1983 - stabilize his spirit now that his body is broken. Find a place for it to inhabit. Since FNAF World’s secret route, in addition to being linked to the crying child is also linked to the happiest day, could it be linked to the arcade games?
Also of note is the fact that the clock ending follows a series of minigames with a distinct connection to the happiest day.
We know the crying child had a big role in Happiest Day as well from FNAF World.
So, how does BB play into the happiest day?

Happiest Day

BB…actually has a big role in Happiest Day. He helps out with a lot of tasks, he ties in with Mangle at four tasks, helping RWQ reach Jeremy to give him a cake, helping Mangle and Toy Chica reach their objectives with balloons, and giving cake to Gabriel.
But there's still one odd thing about BB that is only shared with The Puppet: you can go to his minigame at any time, whenever you like. And you have to go there twice.
I am of the firm belief that in these minigames, it really is BB’s spirit represented as the player of BB’s air adventure, likewise for Mangle, Golden Freddy, The Puppet, and Shadow Bonnie.
If it turns out the trail of breadcrumbs was for BB/The Crying Child, who has an involvement in practically every minigame, then that fulfills BV’s happiest day role as alluded to in FNAF World!

What BB actually does in FNAF2

So now that I’ve told you about BB and what he’s done and who he is, we have to return to FNAF2.
I’ve been thinking carefully about it a lot, and I’ve come to some conclusions that, as I said before, BB has been misunderstood.
The below picture, with BB’s carved-on smile cropped out, and a full battery meter, both show that BB’s happiness is superficial and he does not modify the battery power. (Yet another thing that started off as a joke that I’ve seen some theorists casually pick up)

Those audio recordings, likewise, as I said before, are just audio recordings-and he only has three of them. He uses them for other things than just to laugh. He could be scared he’s in the same office as the killer. He could be scared of a lot of things, with the Crying Child’s ghost.
BB’s manipulation of the lights in the office is what is called a passive skill. It’s something that Bonnie and Chica also do. It’s just something that happens when animatronics are near certain devices. Being so close to all those generators probably futzed with the electricity. It’s called Micro EMP obstruction.
OK, but you must be wondering where I’m going with this, so I’ll cut to the point.
If we’ve established that BB isn’t directly interfering with our equipment and he’s not actually happy about all of this, to what extent is he intentionally causing us harm?Keep in mind, he could attack us directly via jumpscare but does not.
Now I can practically hear you all protesting that BB is too small to attack the guard like that, but is that actually a thing? A threshold where it’s simply impossible for an animatronic to attack a guard?
  • Puppet is some fabric, and a ceramic mask - and attacks the player.
  • Golden Freddy - noncorporeal, also attacks the player! Shadow Bonnie: also incorporeal and crashes your game!
  • Or what about bidybabs and the minireenas? Mini-music man? Need I say anymore?
Size/durability doesn’t factor in - if a robot wants you to die, you will die.
And there are other things that suggest the crying child/BB isn’t putting in his all here: for one, look at the Freddy Head:
Most animatronics either are or aren’t fooled by the Freddy Head. There’s no in-between. Foxy and The Puppet are not fooled. Everyone else is…except for BB. His reaction to the Freddy Head differs depending on where he is. If you show it to him in the vent, he’ll run. If you show it to him while he’s in the office, he’ll freeze and start vocalizing his laugh ad nauseum while your lights stop working.
While Mangle also will not leave the office once he/she successfully gets inside,
you can clearly see his/her head is tipped at a 90-degree angle to not trip the facial recognition system.

Also, Mangle actually has an endgame to staying in the office - attacking Jeremy / Fritz,
and BB doesn’t, which, as we’ve established above, actually wouldn’t be because he’s just too small.
And furthermore, if you do get him with the mask? Here’s what he does: he will, always, without fail, run all the way back to his starting position! Why?! That’s so inefficient! He slowly works his way up to the office and then completely resets his progress! Most animatronics, with the exception of Toy Freddy, Foxy, and Freddy, do not go back to their starting positions, and even they don’t have to walk as far as BB. Observe, BB’s walk pattern:
This is what happens if you repel him with the mask.
So just to make sure I haven’t lost anybody here,
  1. BB treks all the way across the restaurant to your office. If you show him the mask in the vent, he will run back to his spot on Cam 10, when he could lurk by a closer place.
  2. If a small robot has enough murderous intent then it can and will kill you, which begs the question of why BB does not.
  3. There’s no real reason why the head doesn’t work on BB.
  4. As this theory suggests, the crying child’s spirit possesses BB.
Now look here: we know the crying child has a bad habit of freezing in place when he’s scared and overwhelmed.
This is the second minigame where we find the crying child overwhelmed in Fredbear’s. In this minigame, he is able to stand up after a moment of coaxing.
The first one, however, the crying child locking up due to overwhelming distress is pretty much the main point of the game.

What if, what is actually happening when the crying child /BB goes into the office is that he gets scared and starts freaking out, but it comes out as laughter?
I’ll lay out the scenario: The Crying Child / BB, having been killed by accident and apologized to by his brother, has no real motives for revenge on any of that stuff. But he is still afraid of the dark just like he was alive, so he gets sick of staying still alone in the dark and tries to go find somewhere to go.
When he reaches the office, if the guard puts on the mask while he’s in the vent, he’ll be afraid and run back to his starting position because he’s scared of the mask.
But what about when he stays in the office and laughs?”
Well, for some reason, something different happens. He locks up, the way he did in some of the FNAF4 minigame segments. He locks up and can’t move and starts crying.
“It sounds like he’s laughing.”
Ah, but remember what I said? His laugh could just as well be a sign of fear. Only three prerecorded noises - that’s all he has. That is all the crying child has.
So basically his Micro EMP interference causes problems with the light, but if you don’t scare him back to his place with the mask then he’ll freeze up in place and panic in the form of laughter!

Other Hints

And the cherry on top is that there is STILL more to suggest that the crying child possesses Balloon Boy.
Fruit Punch Clown
Fruit Punch Clown is a small, seemingly innocuous minigame from Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza Simulator. However, within the context of BBVictim, it gains a brand new meaning: you see, the objective of the minigame is to “Surprise” as many children as possible. These children are represented by models of Balloon Boy, instead of Helpy.
And how does Fruit Punch Clown accomplish the act of “surprising” the children? He stands behind them and startles them. The game ends with the frame of every kid looking pretty frightened while Fruit Punch Clown just grins.

Does this look familiar, or what?
Oh, but it gets better: Fruit Punch Clown as a rare line of dialogue:
"Tell anyone about this and I cut your throat."
Some have speculated that this refers to William Afton, but the question is, if William really caught someone watching him commit a crime, would he be content to threaten the witness, or simply go straight to cutting their throat? To me, this sounds more like something a mean older brother would say.
Finally, there’s a hint at BBVictim in Security Breach: BB World.
BB World keeps BB relevant, and also there are hints that we haven’t discovered all the dialogue in the minigame - which in turn hints that there is another spirit in the arcade besides whatever is making that sinister "Good Night" text.
