Game Theory: FNAF, The Answer was RIGHT IN FRONT OF US (Five Nights at Freddys Sister Location)Feb 27, 2020
so great and momentous for the franchise as we know it that I can't stop talking about it here. On the third night of 'Sister Location', Michael Afton's main task is to remove a power module from Funtime Freddy. After following the narrator's instructions on which button to press and in what order, Freddy's brost opens and the power module is revealed. And it's this little blinking black dot. Strangely unrelated to literally anything else in the animatronic, and in a rather unusual place. Just a little bit close, just a little to the side. I remember thinking at the time that this was an odd design choice for something that was supposed to power the entire animatronic. but how would I know?
No one, and I mean NO ONE has mentioned this considering night 3 was pretty forgettable overall. Overshadowed by the misery that was the Spring Lock challenge on night 4, and those fascinating map easter eggs on night 2. But this is FNaF, of course, and no detail is too small in this series, and 'Twisted Ones' ' blew off the lid. the true purpose of this record. Their little mystery is so important that it's the reason they're called 'Twisted Ones' in the first place. Stay with me now, because I'm not making this up. That little 'Sister Location' device is actually a mind control disk.

Pause for all the puzzled breaths and eye rolls required. I do not blame any of these comments. Let me explain. Throughout the book, whenever the Twisted Animatronics appear, people begin to feel strange side effects. Pages 91 and 92: "A wave of nausea washed over her as she touched the creature, but it only lasted a fraction of a second. Something else had transformed at the same time. Her artificial skin took on a luminescent glow, and her movements were smooth." and safe. His shell suddenly seemed to have skin and fur, though they were very blurry, flickering, like a trick of the light." After destroying one of these Twisted Animatronics, Charlie and the boy John discover a foreign object in the machine. "It was a flat record, about the size of a half dollar.
He held it to his ear. 'Wow, that's a real high pitch. I can barely hear it. The sound is what makes you feel bad.' "Send a signal... change the look of those around you... change our perception of what they look like," Charlie corrected. "Freddy's image flickered like a static television screen. Color drained from his fur, then everything Freddy was doing flickered, leaving only a soft plastic figure in its place. He looked just like the rest of the animals in the room." room, a blank mannequin stripped of its features... These weren't made of skin and cloth, they were made of us, twisting our minds... you triggered the chip... you've ended the illusion." Twisting our minds, you say?
Roll the credits! Well, as ridiculous as a small record that makes sounds capable of tricking your brain into perceiving the world around you as sounding different. It really is based on scientific facts. The brain has to constantly process a large amount of information. So look for abbreviations. For example, if I show you this text, you can probably read it very quickly,
right? This is because your brain doesn't read the individual letters, but rather the context of the words around them, the way you expect the sentence to go, and guesses using the words we see most frequently on a day-to-day basis. .
The same is generally true about our visual perception. Without going into detail here, this is how optical illusions work, and a lot of research has been done on how the brain fills in the visual gaps it experiences. So the idea that a record makes noises that distract you and thus shift your perception of reality towards things you're more familiar with isn't as far-fetched as it might seem. At least not as far-fetched as robots possessed by dead children going into all-out battle with other animatronics created to lure unsuspecting victims, which is literally a thing that happens at the climax of this book.
Don't do spoilers or anything. And of course it goes without saying, but these little mind control discs were created by none other than dear father William Afton. Page 99: "There was writing along one edge. He had to bring the piece of plastic close to his face to read the letters. They were small and written in a flowing old script. It read, 'Afton Robotics' LLC. Charlie immediately dropped the record "Afton? William Afton?" "That was his father's old partner. That's--" "That's Dave's real name," John finished. "I thought he was just a business partner at Freddy's," he said slowly. "I think he did more than that." So why and how is this important in the context of the
I really think this has the potential to explain a lot of things. First from the book "So animatronics don't change shape. We just get distracted. But what's the point of that?" To win our trust. To seem kinder. To appear more realistic. To attract children closer to them. And that's something we definitely see in action during 'Sister Location.' It was even hidden in the animatronic blueprints we discovered. Strange technology set in motion to lure and imprison children. Now, this is just speculation, but do you remember the 'Sister Location' secret control room that allowed us to peek into the crying boy's room, as well as other key FNaF 4
On the map they were labeled observation chambers. Could it be that William was observing the effects of the hallucinatory discs on children? Couldn't FNaF 4 have been a dream, a nightmare, a hospital hallucination, whatever, but the twisted dreams generated by these distraction disks? But even beyond that, I think these discs explain a topic that I've been actively avoiding throughout my theories on this series. The Phantom animatronics from FNaF 3. Remember back in FNaf 3 when this was supposed to be the final boss battle? There was only one real animatronic to catch you, Springtrap. All the other sized jumpscares were hallucinations in a building that had a high pitched creak all the time.
Especially when it comes to the puppet attacks. It's strange that these hallucinations happen at a time when there are high-pitched beeps like the ones emanating from these discs, and note that the in-
gamevent only wanted to drop after it was scared, not stop. It's like these hallucinations aren't due to lack of oxygen, like the guy on the phone says, but from some other source. a disk A disk specially designed to manipulate your brain and generate all the horrible memories that have been buried in it. And whether you think Springtrap is Michael Afton or William Afton, which is honestly a
theoryfor another day, there's one thing you can't.
Denying is that these records, Springtrap and the Afton family are all linked. It meant that his purpose in a game where you come into direct contact with a giant golden rabbit definitely makes a lot more sense. Could you also explain other random easter eggs we've seen throughout the series: Lolbit's mask and Minirena's random appearances in the 'Sister Location' control room? Phantom Freddy and Phantom Bonnie from FNaf 2. I mean the
locationof FNaF 2 appears in the books with the discs hidden in the lights of the buildings. Maybe even the "it's me" hallucinations in FNaF 1. The consequences of impulses like this change everything.
And we see them physically present in 'Sister Location.' So even if Scott is tired of the franchise, that doesn't mean it ends without the
answers we've all been waiting for. Did you know? I am here for you to try to put all the pieces of this puzzle together as a community of theorists. There is still much to speculate about. 'The Twisted Ones' opened a door to even more interesting and absurd ways of maiming and killing children with 'Check-E-Cheese'-style robotics. And I haven't even gotten around to thinking that the main character in the book series is probably a robot.
But again, those are all theories for another day. In the meantime, remember: that's just a
theory! A game theory! Thanks for watching! You know,
rightnow FNaF is three years old. Three years! That means most of you younger viewers of the series have probably reached that special moment in your life where hair starts showing up in places it's never been before. Like between your eyebrows. Here they come together to form the much feared unibrow. Take my advice, this is for your own good. Don't be like me. Don't make the mistake of thinking that a blended brow is fine!
UniPat was a very dark time in my life that I choose to forget! No, learn from my mistakes to do the right thing. Go shave, buddy. Dealing with uncomfortable body hair sucks. So why let the shaving process suck too? treat yourself to a club, a dollar shave club. Literally the best, easiest and cheapest shave you will ever have. Because it is better? Because their executive razor is solid metal and it's a cut above flimsy plastic razors from stores that cost more. Why is it the easiest? Why the fuck have to put on pants and go out in public.
Stay away from the world as new razors and shaving butter are delivered to your doorstep. No human interactions needed, which is great for all you introverts watching right now. And why is it the cheapest? Because for a limited time, new members will get their first month of Dr. Brand Executive Tube Razor. Get Carver's Shave Butter for just $5 with free shipping. After that, razors are only a few dollars more expensive per month. That is, according to my math brain, $15 worth available only to theorists right now. Exclusive to Dollar Shave Club .com/MatPat. That's dollarhaveclub.com/ M A T P A T.
In the first month's box you get a big handle weight, a full cartridge of 4 executive cartridges, and a tube of shaving butter. So say goodbye to UniPat and hello to the social acceptance and smoothness of silk. Again, learn from my mistakes ladies and gentlemen. Life after puberty will never be the same. Well, if you'll excuse me. I have a ridiculous math question for next week's episode and I need to go figure it out. See you later.
