    I know,you guys think it's a girl saying to Joey to tell her a story but it's a boy's voice. No need to believe me but it is.

    I love this theory, but there’s an aspect that May didn’t cover that I love, check treescicle for more details but I like to think that the events of the game, the ones you play, is actually one last movie that Joey is doing, just to make it

    I know it’s been a while but I have a small theory. What if we are already ink? When you get hit your blood is black ink, and like you said in a previous video, when some of the ink monsters die, they can be brought back to life, and come out of the ink machine. When we die, we go through a long ink tunnel towards the light, eventually getting back to right where we left off. And the good Alice Angel says “What are you?” I know that is t a very good piece of evidence but it’s still evidence nonetheless. I don’t have much evidence, but it’s cool to think about.

    I have never played the game, so I thought that Bendy went insane because he missed Henry so much, but, I was wrong, it is so much deeper than what I thought, it's pain, regret, sadness, lost dreams, history, moving on, reliving the past, so many other things that go too over my head to fit it all in and think and put it all together. Bendy, Boris, and Alice Angel, all dead, gone, but, I love deep stories like this because it makes me think so hard about life and how some people can't forget or move on. I can't tell people how weird it makes me feel, because I just can't explain it. To strangers on the internet, this makes me sound insane, but I am sure you have had the same feeling, anyone? Like, how it makes you think so hard you can't explain it because you don't know how to put it together and tell people what you are feeling, because we have all felt at least one emotion we can't explain, or are confused about. Sorry if clicking read more was a waste of your time but I felt I had to share.

    When I saw the end of chapter five, I was pretty surprised. Because when you go through the door in joey’s house, it leads to the place where you first spawn in chapter 1. So after you finish the game is it just a infinite loop?

    mat pat liston the workshop is a living cartoon see joey made the ink machine to bring the charecters to life and to do that you need to sacrifice real charecters beacuse they want the bendy land to be alive and joey used the ink machine but acidently created a cartoon universe and henry is dead because if you use the speical glass on your bed you can see a coffin so ya but thats not a theory its a me theory

    The little girl says “tell me another one UNCLE Joey” uncle is a term for a brother, so does that mean Joey and Henry both brothers? 🤔

    Beside the letter written by Allison Conner there's a note that says "Phil 2:03", which is a bible verse. "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility, value others above yourself." Sound's like Joey was trying to remind himself not to let greed or fame get to him, and to instead think of others (his employees)

    I think that the six pieces to start the machine represent Bendy's creation.
    The plushie represents the form to take.
    The record gives it's name.
    The ink bottle shows what Bendy to be made of.
    The cog wheel represents the ink machine.
    The wrench shows what starts the machine.
    And the book gives it it's personality.

    You were originally right about the wheelchair being Joey’s. Idk if anyone pointed this out to you but you were right. I just was re-watching Bendy theories and noticed the wheelchair when you enter the kitchen to talk to Joey. Joey also has the limp you pointed out and the wheelchair was facing in a way so that Joey would be able to get in and out of the chair to make the few steps he needed to in the kitchen
    Edit: just re-watched the next Bendy theory after this and you pointed it out 😂 keep up the good theories
