So, as you all know five nights at freddys 3 came out in the past few days.it was serious hype and it was another great game to add to the franchise in my opinion.but now, it looks like the show is over.as shown by a recent image scott posted of freddy's hat in a spotlight.so I'm thinking this means it's the end of the series.it's sad, but it had to happen at some point.we don't want things getting repetitive.and really, the third game puts a perfect end to the series.but I'll explain why in a bit.this is the first theory journal I'm posting and maybe one of the only but I think it's time I gave you all my full view on the full story behind the five nights at freddys series.enjoy.
It all started back in a restraint known as fredbears family diner.
a place with a single animatronic known as fredbear.it was a popular family friendly diner until one day a murder occurred.this is where the true villan of the series first comes into play.the purple man.he stabs a lonely child out front who was seperated from his parents due to the hustle and bustle the diner was undergoing that day.the diner experienced bad publicity from rumors about a murder spreading.it was forced to go bankrupt after not long and agreed to be bought by fazbear entertainment who wanted to use they're mascot.but they soon realized using a character linked to a diner with a murder in it wouldn't be a good idea.so they instead designed a character similar enough that they didn't have to think too much, but different enough that he wouldn't be seen as something linked to a murder.they created freddy fazbear.and hid fredbear away in a back room from society, leaving him to rot and turn yellow over the years...
This is where a freddy fazbears pizza not seen in a game yet opened.they introduced many characters.freddy himself, along with a few friends for him.bonnie the bunny, chica the chicken, and foxy the pirate fox.along with an...old version of a humanoid animatronic.an old balloon boy.however this pizzeria was shut down after more murders occured there due to sanitation issues linked to it.the murders done by none other then again, the purple man.
And guess what?foxy saw the dead kids one day.as shown by one of the fnaf 2 death minigames.
Fast forward 10-15 years into the future to the year 1987.this is where the events of five nights at freddy's 2 take place.why such a long time gap?I'll explain later.but anyway, this is where good old phone guy starts to work with the company.the people at fazbear entertainment realize that the animatronics are a bit too creepy for kids and plus they are linked to a shut down restraunt.so they create new and improved kid friendly versions of the old animatronics.the old ones were put in the parts and service room while the old bb was put away in a back room thats not on the cameras, where fredbear is still being kept.they also bring out a puppet planned to be used back in the diner but never was.they put it to good use now.however...unbeknownst to them this puppet is possessed by the spirit of the kid murdered at the diner.so the pizzeria opens and after two weeks of it being open this is where jeremy fitzgerald takes the job of the night guard.phone guy, after brushing up on the history of the company and whatnot is able to give jeremy advice on his first week there.during this week, murders yet again occur and an investigation is launched.now, let's take a moment to talk about two important side things.
First off, the mangle was torn apart for the first time by none other then purple man in a certain golden suit Of which he took the endoskeleton out of and tossed into the puppet box so he could wear it.stand by kids thought it was ok since a "friend of mangles" was ripping her apart, so they did it as well every single day.anyway, this period when purple man was dressed up in the suit he lured 5 kids into the back room and killed them all, leaving the bodies there.
another important side thing to mention, is that phone guy is always so calm and collected no matter what, in any situation about the animatronics.it's because he was a huge fan of them as a kid.he went to the last pizzeria often, and loved the old animatronics there.they were his childhood heroes, especially foxy.which is why he can't except the fact of them being murderous machines of death at night.
Now that that's outta the way, back to the timeline stuff.phone guy tells you about an unfortunate event of a yellow suit being used for horrid purposes.this suit is golden freddy AKA FREDBEAR.Fredbear rotted and turned yellow over the years, now known as golden freddy.the story of the murders got out and the police found out.the restraunt is set to close down by the next day but they have one last birthday scheduled.they put jeremy on day shift and tell him to make sure the animatronics don't hurt anyone.so he does just that, and on that day, jeremy protects the kids but towards the end of the party he is bit by mangle.it is at this point the place is shut down but they need one more night guard before they manage to ship everything out the next day.so fritz smith comes in to work the last night.he is blamed for tampering with the animatronics, when really it was done by the purple man after he committed the murders.but wait, we're missing something.ah yes, the fact that when the murders were committed the puppet transferred the souls of the dead kids into the old animatronics of freddy bonnie Chica and foxy.the 5th kid possessed the suit of golden freddy used for the murders On his own, which is why golden freddy has greater supernatural powers then the rest.so now the murdered kids are all out for revenge on the purple man.however the downside, they think all adults are the purple man.which is why they try to kill security gaurds.so anyway, now the pizzeria is shut down but the likes of the old animatronics are being fixed up if they reopen someday while the toy ones are scrapped for possible malfunctions.
Fast forward 6 years into 1993 for the events of fnaf 1.Mike Schmidt takes a job at freddy fazbears pizza as a night gaurd a week after phone guy is to be finished with his night shift duties he said he would take on when the place reopened.during his week on the 4th night Mike hears over the phone that phone guy was killed on his shift on that night a week ago by all 5 animatronics.freddy was in the kitchen playing torredor march, foxy was banging on the door with bonnie out there too, chica had snuck into the office and phone guy had summoned golden freddy by accident.so instead of putting up the camera and having chica finish him he can't react so golden freddy kills him.golden freddy then leaves Mike a distorted message to scare him on night 5.Mike stays for overtime 2 more nights then ends up getting fired and thanks the management For firing him.
Fast forward a whole 30 years into the future, in the year 2023.this is where fnaf 3 takes place.the fnaf 1 pizzeria had burnt down and some people are opening a fazbears fright attraction based off the mysteries of freddy fazbears pizza.lead by the new phone DUDE they search for things to use in the attraction which by the way is in the pizzeria between fredbears diner and the fnaf 2 pizzeria.they wanted to make it authentic so they built it at that location.a place that was left to rot.they find the springtrap costume in the back room on the day of night 2.and I should mention springtrap is an old bonnie costume that was left to rot breakdown and turn yellow.anyway, during the night the...security gaurd without a name you play as sees hallucinations of phantoms of the animatronics that got burnt in the fire.freddy, chica, bb, puppet, and foxy.phone dude leaves you with old tapes phone guy recorded back in the day for the company.he mentions they had two suits that doubled as animatronic and suit.they must've planned to use golden freddy at some point for this purpose but decided against it.along with a spare bonnie suit which ended up being shipped to the location for storage and left to rot.and since it's an old bonnie suit the spirit of bonnie feels no need to haunt you in your hallucinations since he already is in a way.but really the hallucinations are trying to scare you off.because purple guy is inside springtrap and his non resting spirit is out to get you.the events of purple guy tearing apart animatronics is shown in the fnaf 3 minigames.he leads them in the golden freddy suit but they see it as a purple freddy suit since they know he's in there.he goes to an area the animatronics AI isn't allowed to have them go.he then tears them apart when they don't expect it.also shown is the events of him being confronted by the spirits of the dead kids, hiding in springtrap, and bleeding to death inside it because he didn't listen to phone guys advice.the spirits are not yet at rest since he's even more aggressive now though, but after night 6 the attraction burns down from faulty wiring, making the costume and purple guy burn to death once and for all.the spirits are at peace now and finally move onto the afterlife.the killer is dead.the freddy fazbear franchise is finished.the spirits are at peace.and everything is finally over.
I realize I mightve forgotten a few things, but that is what I got on everything i can recall.some things such as jj, the paper plate man moving, and shadow bonnie are most likely hallucinations.
Anyway now I have informed all of you on my take of the franchise.and now it is over.and I have a new lore/theory journal planned for another franchise to be happening some time or another.the franchise in question?well let's just say to find out you gotta believe in steven...yeah that was too obvious .-.
anyway, hope you all learned something.peace out.
