so y'all, you know how in the recordings at the start of the nights in 1 and 2, it's said that Phone Boi was finishing his last week and it's implied the recordings are maybe a week or two old. So I was watching Cowbelly play FNAF and he made a joke about how Phone Guy was "already ringing me up" and
i just realized
why the fuck
does the phone
I DON'T KNOW WHAT UNIVERSE YOU COME FROM, BUT WHERE I COME FROM, RECORDINGS ON PHONES DO NOT RING PRIOR TO PLAYING A PRERECORDED MESSAGE. ALSO, ON NIGHT 4, WHY WOULD HE ASK YOU TO CHECK THE SUITS FOR HIM IF HE KNEW YOU'D BE THERE *WEEKS FROM THEN?* HE CAN'T RELY ON YOU TO DO THAT UNLESS IT WAS A LIVE MESSAGE. HE SAYS AT THE START OF THAT SAME CALL THAT "I'm glad I recorded the messages for you... when I did." I ASSUMED HE MEANT HE RECORDED THEM WEEKS IN ADVANCE BUT NO, HE MEANT HE'S GLAD HE RUNG US UP SO THAT WE WOULD KNOW HE WAS IN TROUBLE
THEY'RE NOT PRERECORDED MESSAGES. But this begs the question. If he's being assaulted in Night 4, but we can very clearly see the presence of the animatronics not attacking him- also, he clearly uses a door in the call- how?
First off, I noticed that I could only hear one door being absolutely fucking marauded by animatronics. You don't hear two sets of banging sounds at the same time and you don't hear doors being fiddled with, you only hear banging on one particular door. Wherever he was, it was a very safe room where a door was in play. Somewhere an animatronic wasn't able to access it- but despite this, he was still assaulted by Goldilocks conjoined with her nemesis- He was in the safe room.
But what about the animatronics still being present in the call? Well, put these two things together and you can assume a simple thing-
Phone Twat faked his own fricking death
you knew this was coming because of my sequel-theory ass
If the call is live, then surely he couldn’t have been killed by the FNaF 1 gang since you can peep at them on the cameras, which either means Phone Guy is at a seperate location where he is being attacked by animatronics that are the same (Would make sense if Fazbear’s is a chain restaurant) or he DID fake his death.
The universe that Phone Guy came from is the 90s, so things might have been different for him....but I'm not sure if Phone Dude's calls were recorded or not in FNAF 3

I may be missing something, but Foxy was banging the door to drain the power, giving the chance for others to bite you
And coming to think of it, no one said that Phone Guy had to be in this pizzeria (not to my knowledge, I'll listen to the recordings again before I go on with this), but potentially, Phone Guy could even be in another pizzeria. After all, the assumption made was made because Gmae 1 was the first, and there were no other pizzerias to consider. But Phone Guy does mention a "Sister location" in other audio tapes...the game 1 Freddy's could just be one in a chain at the time...

Pretty sure 75% of the call is composed of "UHH, Uhm. Err. And silence between words."
The funny thing is with the interview it seems Phone Guy/Scott naturally has those kind of verbal traits e.g. 'uh' and 'you know' aren't Scott putting on an act, Phone Guy's speech mannerisms are actually Scott's speech mannerisms.
Phone Guy tells us he's glad that he recorded his messages when he did yet the ringing is odd, maybe it's just to give the player time to decide if they want to mute the call or something like that. That or Scott forgot how a phone works.

I mean, to be fair, there are machines that will auto-dial numbers and play a pre-recorded message. It would ring up the number, much like a normal phone call would, and leave the message in the voicemail for the recipient to hear. If you were to pick up the phone, you would still hear the same message regardless, so there would be no point in picking up the phone.
If we look at Fazbear Entertainment, they were hemorrhaging employees quite badly, so it would be expensive to be constantly giving out the tapes to each new employee that walked into the door. But if you setup an auto-dialer, and have the autodialler call the security guard’s phone at a time with the prerecorded messages setup, it would be a lot more efficient.
As for the Night 4 issue, Phone guy probably knew that he was about to die, and sent out a last ditch effort for anyone listening to the message to check the suits, and mentioned the player specifically, since they were most likely the ones that were going to hear it. There was no guarantee that he was going to be found in time.
Yeah I think Phone Guy's character development was subtle but so sad. In FNAF 2 and FNAF 3's calls he's the upbeat and loyal employee of Fazbear's but by the time of FNAF 1 he sounds so worn down, so tired, so completely done that his final line before dying horribly is a flat and dead "oh no."
...Although...was Phone Guy asking for someone to check the suit so they could find him, or find his body? Because in location 1, they don't wear the suits do they? But the mascots do kill them that way
Wise words yes, but also wise words coming from someone who is most likely sleep deprived. I've an open mind but it's not the same as an open door policy. Some caution and scepticism is all part and parcel of a healthy outlook after all.
I guess none of us have been getting much sleep.
Making a map of available possiblities, then checking to see if the available lore eliminates any of them, is a basic move. You should never throw away possibilities without through good cause.
Yeah I'll agree with you there that there should be a solid reason for discounting something and something should only be discounted once it's understood really. Discounting something before examining it properly has proven to be quite detrimental.
You know that thing where if you look at a certain word or think of a certain sound when you're listening to something, it sounds like it's there but it's really not? I think that's what's happening here. An illusion, pretty much.
The end of the call has the typical 'click' the recording makes at the end but aside from that I didn't hear any clicks. Besides I'm pretty damn sure spring loaded mechanisms holding back animatronic parts make a more substantial noise than some measly clicks.
Night 4 of SL does show that the springlocks make clicking noises...when they're being wound up or coming loose. A springlock failure I imagine would be much louder if the 8-bit soundbyte from Purple Guy's FNAF 3 death is any indication.
I love how he uses an ingredient analogy to describe how he makes games almost like making a cake. FNAF 1 truly was all the right stuff at the right time after all it was where it all started not only for us but for Scott himself.
The Freddy Files no joke throws shade at those kind of theories stating Phone Guy would have to be an immortal if FNAF 2 were a sequel (lookin' at you Darl). Then again in a series where many characters do seem somewhat immortal it isn't an 'out there' kind of theory in terms of staying within the series' logical consistency.
It's not even a tape recorder. It's just a feature in the phone.
And Night 5 phone call can either be considered as a possession of the phone (super spooky supernatural stuff) or an auditory hallucination of Mike's.
Pretty sure everybody who has ever walked into a Fazbear owned joint has not wanted to die. Phone Guy probably sounds so apathetic towards his death is because he's essentially been worn down over time to the point he probably has become a little less concerned about dying.
William Afton...character development? The man is a walking Evil Brit/Mad Scientist stereotype he's introduced as an evil and unrepentant villain and his final moments in the series are also as an evil and unrepentant villain. He is the prime example of a flat character arc i.e. a character who instead of having the external world change them changes the external world e.g. Frieza from DBZ, Emperor Palpatine from Star Wars etc.
I don't really see why Phone Guy would need to fake his death, he was only a guide to help the player and reveal lore hints that only a voice could, after all. His death was most likely just to spook the player, as everything else in FNaF 1 probably was.
I think that TOYSNHK is canon, along with the interpretation that Cassidy created a purgatory domain for William Afton so she could torture him. But, UCN itself probably isn't canon due to the absurdity of it.
The only plausible candidates at this point is Michael and Henry because they've both experienced the animatronics upclose and personal either because their family made the animatronics or they're the owner of the restaurant. CC is dead, Jeremy isn't Michael and probably doesn't want anything to do with it, and both Henry and Michael have a motive for working there and or burning the place down.
Actually, it was confirmed that TSE was in production nearly before FNAF 3 came out, and Henry was in it, so there's no doubting there's a chance Henry actually existed in the main gameverse during that time. Henry just didn't appear until the story felt like it should. (The gameverse was still young, remember.)
Plus, it looks like Henry actually based off the RASC off of the audio lure for the building and built Lefty after the events of FNAF 3 from the Phantom Puppet, or hallucinations, or whatever.
And why doesn't anybody consider that Henry had a plan B? Plan A was to be hired at Fazbear's Fright, and find a way to free the children, Plan B was FFPS. The first part of your plan is to always find your enemy first.
I just doubt that Scott intended for the FNAF 3 Protagonist to be that "original owner" all the way back then. Even if Henry existed in the Novels at that time, there was no evidence back then that the protagonist was Henry.
