    Just a thought, if Michael is Henry’s son, then why doesn’t Henry mention him in pizzeria simulator at the end? He only mentions Elizabeth. Also why doesn’t Charlie talk about two brothers in the books (unless she does, i haven’t read them. I just assume Mat would’ve mentioned that). What if mustard man is William afton, because that mini game is from his perspective. And he sees himself as golden Bonnie because he says in the books “I’m one of them” plus he’s only purple from the spirits perspective because he is in shadows. In a game that is in his own perspective, he wouldn’t be purple, he would be golden. That’s just a theory tho

    My theory is that the ancient civilisation was so advanced( as they could make end portal blocks) , that they also managed to make a command block, which in turn they thought they could use to ‘control’ the wither, kinda like giving a brain to it, as the wither is just empty souls, with no control over their powers, which makes them destructive. But unfortunately, they ended up making a WITHER STORM! It exists in minecraft storymode, where a wither plus command block made it into a wither storm. Thats whats killing the civilisation, thats what made them flee. Also, we might be the wither storm, just highly stabilised over time, which explains why we respawn on dying cuz control blocks cant be destroyed right? Hmmmmm

    I have another theory. What if nor all the people of this civilisation became drowned? What if they became normal land dwellers, like villagers and steve? And what if they converted themselves from religious to scientific beings, creating the the wither and finally ending up in the End? That would mean that they became the Endermen, which makes a whooole ton of sense, cuz endermen are AFRAID OF WATER. It probably reminds them of their horrific past, when they had encountered their first mass extinction event. Also, i think that when they became men of science, creating portals, enchantments and spawners, they also created the command block. This means that it wasnt a wither that was killing them off, it was a WITHER STORM! We know this from minecraft story mode that wither with a command block makes a wither storm. Also, command block means that they could create blocks that make up end portal blocks. Better yet, i have a theory where herobrine fits into this as well

    Notice the show "fred bear and freinds" on one of the nights minigames says "1983" at the bottom other screen, which,by normal standards,would be the copyright year having it the same year as the airing of the show. Which in turn, would make this the bite of 83, and in the Freddy Files, the book explains that mangle was the animatronic to cause the bite of 87.

    by the way crash bandicoot has "NITRO" crates, possibly containing nitroglycerine. in fact, we can prove they contain nitroglycerine by looking back at a few crash games. coco in (i forgot the name of the game) explains something along the lines of nitroglycerine in relation to these crates.

    What if Nintendo went "Mass Effect" on BotW 2? If you take into account the fact that there is a "true ending" where you have gotten all the memories from around Hyrule and became the "True Hero of the Wild" like Zelda remembers Link to be prior to the Shrine of Resurrection, and BotW 2 continues to the true defeat of Demise/Ganon by Ganondort either sacrificing himself because he remembers what the curse does from every timeline or just straight up refuses to be mislead by Demise any longer and **actually joins up** with Zelda and Link to truly beat Demise once and for all? But then, think about the mirrored world that would be created if Link *didn't* get all the memories. Ganondorf takes the lack of the Hero's memories and twists it to his advantage to completely destroy the world and end the cycle that way, trapping the spirits of the Eternal Princess and the Hero in a purgatory that is inescapable and unbreakable. Demise/Ganon/Ganondorf now becomes the one and only tyrant ruler of Hyrule, with no one and nothing to challenge him. But hey, that's just a theory. A darn good one at that. And hey, if Nintendo actually pulls this off, which I personally hope that they do. Then BotW 2 will both be a fitting end to the Zelda series as a whole, and a potentially bigger cliffhanger for future games. Bigger than their trailer drop for BotW 2! P.S. Hey Matt, I hope you come back to this comment and try to present this nice bit of text in another full fledged GT Episode. Or don't, I'm mostly just hoping for a shout-out at this point. Keep Theorizing!
