Game Theory: The FNAF 7 Oopsie! Scott's Problem With Fanart

    SUBSCRIBE for More Theories! ►
    Just a little while ago, Scott Cawthon resurfaced with a FNAF 7 teaser image that was quickly removed because - SHOCKER - it contained fan created models of the FNAF characters. If that sounds complicated, the short of it is that Scott (or rather his team) used fanart in their official teaser image. Those of us who have been on the internet for a little while know that is a big no-no. Yet if Scott owns the characters, but the fan artist owns the fanart, who has a right to the art? It's the big copyright paradox! Today I aim to unravel that knot!

    I just figured out physics friend fredbear. He is the puppet. Using his ability to move souls BETWEEN objects to place his soul into psychic friend fredbear. Then in the box is the form that the crying child takes. And that form is golden freddy. The hat color is different. And as usual in this franchise. The small details make the biggest difference. Next is someone who is never even shown. That unseen person is who the crying child witnessed being killed. The puppet then arriving in time to see the murder, but not in time to be able to save their soul. Then they transfer their soul to plush fredbear and try to protect the child from the murderer. And murders continue long enough for the puppet to realise what's going on and soon realises that the older brother and their group are going to be lured eventually and is able to save their souls. And despite what many of your theories say, there's no proof that the frontal lobe was completely separated from the brain. I personally believe that the connection between it and the rest of the brain is damaged in such a way that it can't stop forcing the kid to feel fear. Making it so that as the nights go on the forced fear gets worse. Then every thing can fit for the puppets and golden freddy backstory.
    I really hope that you get this and include it in one of your videos and also huge fan by the way. I personally am fully for the timeline where fnaf 4 animatronic part is coma dream. Also do you think that toy freddy is fat. Because I do.

    Copyright rule of thumb: If the person suing you would have to pay more out of pocket than they would gain from winning their case, you're safe. Companies are in the business of making money. If there's no money to be made in suing you, they won't. That's the bottom line.

    okay I know this is kind of a long shot but you know the 1983 TV show in fnaf well what if that actually when the show came out so it's actually 1987 but the show just has 1983 because that's when the show came out it's a long shot and I know it's probably not right but think about it you know how sometimes at the bottom of this TV show you watch it would sometimes have the date and then the copyright symbol what if that's actually just when the TV show came out or where that pacific advertisement came out
    I know this is probably ruin the timeline but can you at least try to answer this question please it's been on my mind for years well not years were like days

    you talk about copy rights and then you use some one elses work and also at 2:35 the stear way is it a twenty one pilots thing becuase when you go to imaband.ito and you do an experience at some point you see a stear way and it looks alot like that, speaking of copyright.

    I don't know if this as been adressed before and tell me if it is.
    Henry was said to kill himself after making Baby but Henry ended it all in fnaf 6. Meaning there is a big bunch of confusion. The distance that the gun shot him meant that he would of definitely died so that can't come before fnaf 6 but William Afton would have to not be Springtrap so the suicide could of not came after.
    My theory
    The suicide was STAGED. If you look at what I said before it is obvious that this could be the case. I may post a video about it.
    Just think about it.

    Henry's daughter is the first victim of Afton because in Fnaf Pizzeria Simulator's insanity ending, Henry says, "Not until I undo what he has done, and heal this wound. A wound first inflicted on me, but then one that I let bleed out to cause all of this." "A wound first inflicted on me" clearly shows that Henry's daughter has to be the first victim. So much for your last theory MatPat

    I noticed something that seemed unusual to me as I was watching your past FNaF theories that was in the image with the gravestones. If you take another look at it, there’s another gravestone on a distant hill. I don’t think this was just to make it look like the bodies were buried in a cemetery and not nowheresland, but to see there’s another character, perhaps a main character, that died and was buried nearby. Who else could it be? Surely not one of the toy, phantom, nightmare, scrap, or Sister Location animatronics from what I see, they aren’t quite main characters. They’re just different versions of Freddy, Bonnie, Chica, and Foxy apart from Ballora, Baby, the Minireenas, and Ennard. I’m thinking if Michael, the bite of ‘83 victim, was in that mystery box like you said, it couldn’t be him. I personally think it was none other than the Puppet. It makes sense, doesn’t it? The Puppet brought all the other animatronics to life. Without the Puppet, we wouldn’t have any games to play. Without the Puppet, Matpat would have no lore to analyze. The Puppet is extremely important if you think about it. The Puppet should be a main character because it’s this important, so I think that last gravestone belongs to the body of the spirit who possesses it. I’ll let Matpat do the rest of the thinking and analysis.
