It’s a little strange to think that Vanessa appears at the top the Pizzaplex, while the building is burning in FNAF Security Breach’s “Exit via VIP Fire Escape” ending. Vanny appears unmasked as Vanessa, and the CD tapes found throughout all confirm that Vanessa was working for Glitchtrap. Why is Vanessa, the security guard still at the top, Pizzaplex?
Occam’s Razor Theory 1 – A Twin
This is why Vanessa’s lines seem sincere, and also why they don’t just end Gregory when they capture him in the elevator. It doesn’t explain why either of them would not mention the other at all.
It’s easy and direct. The security guard works at the Pizzaplex in an effort to locate Vanny, Vanny, their missing twin. There are a few problems…
After dark, the entire Pizzaplex becomes a nightmare. Gregory was not lost and found by the security guard. He would have to be left alone and then allow the bunny-clad creep to visit.
Vanny’s hideout, then, is basically how does that work. How could Vanny’s security guard not have known about it? Gregory’s poster with missing children clearly shows that the Pizzaplex is doing absolutely nothing. How could anyone be innocent?
It’s easy and it explains a lot. However, I like to experiment with different theories later on. The truer theory would be:
Occam’s Razor Theory 2, Soul Remnant/Ghost
As is common in FNAF lore, it’s likely that the Vanessa at the Pizzaplex is just a soul relic now permanently stuck in the same place. While the Pizzaplex is ablaze, Vanessa remains trapped in the same place. It’s now a ghost.
Spicy Theory: An Animatronic (Molten Freddy / Ennard / Cirque Baby) Did It
The amalgam underground has proven that Molten Freddy is real, so Vanny can be brought back for round two with an endo.
Two games have strong ties to Security Breach. Steel Wool created Help Wanted. The other is FNAF Sister Location, which is… interesting. Ennard and Circus Baby (Molten Freddy Amalgam), etc. are basically the same thing. The ability to wear the skin of a Human’s body and inhabit it.
Through the therapist tapes, it is clear that Vanessa is Vanny and they are working together with Glitchtrap. As made clear by the William Afton ending, the Amalgam is kept in the old pizzaria.
Recap of Sister Location
Sister Location’s story is very important to this theory. It basically confirms everything that we need to know about Ennard being the other Vanessa. Let’s do a quick recap. As a new employee, Micheal Afton visits Circus Baby’s Entertainment and Rental. There are five nights total:
- Nothing of note occurs the first night.
- This is the night Circus Baby begins talking to Michael, telling him to hide under the desk, and then helping him defend himself.
- Funtime Freddy is taken to Funtime Michael’s house for repair. Funtime Foxy is on Michael’s way home and captures him.
- Michael is kidnapped and taken by Circus Baby. He must shake off Minireenas while wearing a springlock suit and charging the locks to keep them from releasing.
- Michael returns to fix Circus Baby. Michael is given a chip by Circus Baby that allows him to navigate through the darkness. He lies that Ballora is behind him, but it’s actually Ennard. In the true ending, Circus Baby takes Michael to the scooping area, where he scoops and Ennard takes control.
The post credits scene shows Ennard’s parts being thrown out by Michael. He then rises up again.
Who is Molten Freddy/ Freddy Amalgam/ Ennard/The Blob?
Ennard was Circus Baby. However, Ennard was spit out in Sister Location’s final ultra cutscene. This scene has never had an explanation. Ennard, an amalgamation of Funtime animatronics, continued to exist and went in a variety of directions. It is renamed Molten Freddy in Pizza Simulator, which it should have been destroyed. Molten Freddy was destroyed in FNAF Pizza Simulator but it wasn’t. It was merged with a few other characters, including the Puppet. It is the thing that kills Afton during the Canon Cutscene.
Fazbear Frights books are about Ennard, who I won’t spoil. It is the main antagonist throughout the entire book. Although the books do not intertwine, it is possible that Ennard’s Fazbear Frights obsession has something to do with Security Breach.
Who is Circus Baby?
Elizabeth Afton is Circus Baby. Elizabeth liked Circus Baby a lot. However, Circus Baby was made to trap people within it. Circus Baby captured Elizabeth and ran through the scooping machine. Thus, Circus Baby is haunted by the spirit of Elizabeth Afton. This becomes Ennard as the animatronics move to the “Sister Location”, where they scoop themselves up and merge their endoskeletons together.
In the post credits scene, Circus Baby splits with Ennard (I presume they stayed within Michael until they became Scrap Baby). Ennard becomes a Molten Freddy/The Freddy Amalgam that we later see in security breach, and Circus Baby is now Scrap Baby. All of these were supposed to be destroyed by FNAF Pizza Simulator.
What would Elizabeth Afton/Circus Baby look like?
The end of FNAF Pizza Simulator is a great deal. The animatronics, including William Afton, are all destroyed together. Ultimate Custom Night makes it clear that Willaim Afton is being persecuted by Eleanor/Elizabeth / Whoever for his crimes… a nice ending to Scott Cawthon’s FNAF series.
Steel Wool takes the series back up, and we get FNAF Help Wanted. This brings back all animatronics as well as introduces a new pizzeria. The game is based upon WHICH a Pizzaplex gets built on top. We then get Molten Freddy’s return, which means that anything can be done to take over someone and roll around as them.
Steel Wool begins their FNAF-verse scanning in the circuit boards from the old animatronics in order to reverse engineer a franchise reboot and correct Fazbear Entertainment’s image. The board is scanned in by Steel Wool with William Afton’s souls, and they are able to hold on tight until the reboot of the franchise is complete.
Glitchtrap is back, Molten Freddy’s back and bigger, and Scraptrap is back as Burntrap.
Vanessa as Ennard / Circus Baby
Since everyone is back, why not have Circus Baby return and take over the exoskeleton cover? Then, jump back up to the roof and pretend you’re all shocked that the Pizzaplex is burning. I swear I’m not an Endoskeleton in Human (because such things don’t get noticed in the FNAF universe).
Similar to Ennard and Molten Freddy, you could also do the same thing.
We won’t be able to determine who or what second Vanessa is until more information is available, but we can have fun rethinking old theories until then!
