One of the most asked questions of all time in the Five Nights at Freddy's community is: who is the Purple Guy? Well I am gonna answer it and reveal who some other major characters are.

Who is the Purple Guy?

Thanks to Five Nights at Freddy's 4 a lot of rumors were put to rest and basically the whole story of the game was revealed. It was all in front of us but after months and months of discussions I an finally able to put it all together and tell you guys, well here goes. The Purple Guy is our dad......Yes you read it right he is our dad. The kid we play as in FNAF 4, the Purple Guy is his dad and to support my theory here is the evidence.

The Evidence

As many of you may know "the fate of the purple guy" was not good, in Five Nights at Freddy's 3 he met with an accident after he jumped into a suit causing the spring locks to malfunction and thus became Springtrap. In FNAF 3 Springtrap is attracted to the voice of a little child the child being his child who also met with an accident in the same restaurant. Maybe that is the last thing he remembers about his kid and thus goes wherever he hears it. The older kids we see in the FNAF 4 mini game are the little kids only friends who bully him and cause the bite of '87. The Purple Guy gets really mad about this kills the older kids and stuffs them into the animatronic suits. The souls of these kids then come to take their revenge and cause the Purple Guy to become Springtrap.


It all makes perfect sense, that's why the animatronics come to scare us the main player in FNAF 1,2 and 3 is the little kid, the souls of the older kids rest in the animatronics and they come to scare us like they did earlier. After we are fired from our work we change our name and join the "sister location" and in FNAF 3 we return to the same location as in FNAF 1. That's why we have all those hallucinations. I hope this post clarifies your doubts and answers your questions, maybe this is what is inside the box, the whole story? Tell me what you think in the comments section down below.
