Theorists, it’s finally time for a Five Nights At Freddy’s Security Breach theory.
Well, a post-release FNAF Security Breach theory.
Don’t worry, I will be covering EVERYTHING I can find. The biggest thing I want to talk about today, however, is Gregory. The young boy that we play as throughout the whole game is a big mystery and I intend to solve it!
Who is he? Why is he there after hours? Is he even HUMAN? It’s time to dive back into FNAF!
Who is Gregory FNAF?
Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach has a new cast, including a protagonist, Gregory FNAF, who is a lot more characterized than those before him.
As a result of experimenting with new kinds of gameplay, Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach represents the next evolution in the series. Taking what was learned from the gameplay of Sister Location and the Help Wanted VR title, FNaF: Security Breach has players navigate Freddy Fazbear’s Mega PizzaPlex. Accompanied by a friendly animatronic for the first time in the series, players need to sneak around many robots staffing the building, as well as a mysterious human antagonist.
The game takes place at the current end of the series’ timeline, and provides a fan service-laden look at its world.
A new Five Nights at Freddy’s means a new cast, and characters are as strong as ever. The Glamrock animatronics have been equipped with almost sentient AI, and provide both a fun crew of mascots and a persistent threat.
Vanny, the first openly human antagonist, is an interesting addition, especially as the player delves into her backstory and potential resolutions. Glamrock Freddy in particular is a great ally to have during the stressful stay at the PizzaPlex, and the protagonist Gregory is more defined than those of the past. However, explaining what’s going on with him will involve spoilers for Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach.
Gregory’s Character in Security Breach
After a brief cinematic introduction to the Glamrock animatronics, the player is put in control of a malfunctioning Freddy before Gregory FNAF is ejected from his chest.
Under mysterious circumstances, Gregory snuck into the Mega PizzaPlex and stowed away to escape the security guard Vanessa, who is gradually revealed to be Vanny’s civilian identity. While a lot of Gregory’s personal history goes unmentioned, he is undoubtedly a child brave enough to navigate the horrors of the PizzaPlex.
There is a key detail in the one-star ending that lends some clarity to his story. Gregory FNAF is strongly implied to be homeless, as the ending where he leaves through the PizzaPlex’s front doors involves him going to a cardboard box to sleep.
This lack of true shelter leads to Vanny following him out and either capturing or killing him.
How Gregory Compares to Past FNaF Protagonists
Gregory is different from old player characters in a number of ways. Normally, the first-person Five Nights at Freddy’s games are simply a vehicle for the player to spend five nights at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizzeria (or some equivalent).
To that end, they tend not to have defined appearances or a voice. The child protagonist from FNaF 4 only had a simple pixel art design. Gregory actually has concept art showing his face, and he speaks frequently throughout Security Breach.
He’s also actively navigating the building to escape, putting him at odds with most other protagonists, who could not – or would not – leave.
Compared to the security guards and guests of past games, Gregory has no connection to the in-universe Fazbear brand, and notably dislikes the PizzaPlex.
He does share a story similarity with certain protagonists in a couple of endings, as a few have opted to destroy Fazbear’s Pizzeria rather than just leave.
Though Gregory is brutal to the animatronics attacking him, he is otherwise averse to violence, and is somewhat self-sacrificial in his efforts to uncover the truth behind Vanny and the PizzaPlex. While he had no intention of doing so, Gregory has continued the trend of random staff and guests fighting back the evils that Fazbear Entertainment allows to fester in its halls.
Is Gregory the crying child FNAF?
We Don’t Want To Come True! Gregory Is The Crying Child
The presumed protagonist of the newest game is Gregory, a child we see hiding in the stomach cavity of Glamrock Freddy in new statue merchandise.
We hear his name in the trailer, in the voice of the same Freddy. Fans speculate, due to similar appearances, that Gregory and the Crying Child are the same.
However, this might not make sense, as the Crying Child appears to die at the end of the fourth game when players hear a heartline monitor flatline.
Glamrock Freddy within the game is Gregory’s protector attempting to help him survive until 6am and escape, with the player being able to climb into his stomach’s Birthday Cake hatch and take control to hide from and evade the other Animatronics in certain sections.
Greg is the main protagonist of Fazbear Frights: Fetch. Not to be confused with Gregory the main character of Five Nights at Freddy’s: Security Breach.
