What is Friday Night Funkin'? Well, it is not your average DDR-esk game, that's for sure! You see, when this game started to make it's rounds around SLflow, I got a lot of requests to cover it. So I started researching. Theorists, this game is FULL of lore... and it gets WEIRD! Seriously, you will have to watch to believe it.

  • Now here’s the question, do I wanna give bezos more money by getting audible?

  • Girlfriends name is Friday

  • I don’t really play the games you make lore vids about. But the lore videos are interesting.


  • Spirit doesn’t control senpia

  • Matpat you are wrong because monster was in the background near miku

  • I’m watching this at 1 am… please send help I don’t think my blanket is enough protect

  • god, i want the full game to cone out as soon as possible! this is to interesting!

  • Can you make a video Wean garcello die and Return

  • You know all of the fnf cannon names but monster?! Unacceptable

  • 15:10 this is why I only choose one video that's at least 20-25 minutes long, rather than a playlist, if I need background noise to fall asleep. I use it like a sleep timer on a clock radio or TV. That or a whirring fan will do the trick.

  • Experimenting with souls Souls wanting revenge Body swapping Oh no….it’s starting to sound like fnaf

  • 8:31 zig and sharko now lemon monster and boyfriend

  • theory: people can speak actual english but it doesn't perceive correctly when through a microphone

  • I wonder if the game developers watch the video and change the lore if they haven't

  • You should do one of these videos with pico’s school , nene’s interactive su*cde, and Darrell plays with fire!

  • *weird machine noises* is this dimension # 34JKBNIZ!? I have to find the 'Creators'! *machine explodes* dammit. I guess we have more time.

  • Video 11 of posting about otamatone lore

  • Something people probably don't notice. Lemon demon is standing on the second floor, top right of the mall. If you watch when it pans to Boyfriend you will see 'em.

  • Did anyone else notice Zone Tan in the background?

  • Right before I watched the vid, they showed me and ad of the game… I don’t watch that game unless cory plays it💯🤦🏾‍♂️where’s coryyyyyyu

  • I hope fnf get a castle crashers level

  • plz more

  • The Santa is being held hostage for his chair

  • The fact that I'm at 1% and won't be able to finish the theory

  • hold up. if i remember correctly ( i don't remember clearly, so take this with a grain of salt) wasen't week 6 AFTER week 2 then the order would be 1 3 4 2 6 5

    • so the speculation ( i don't know how to spell thery, thiory, idk) would be incorrect

  • T _ I wut. an't this just a funny rap game?

  • im pretty sure lemon demon is in bf head.

  • Can you do a theory on tabi?

  • Lemon monster was in back ground in mall,i dont think that santa was lemo monster

  • Hereditary style wtf XD

  • 12:54 😏

  • 10:29 who's the girl with the skull on her clothes?

  • I only commented to hear epik intro 0:29

  • I think that the monster is wait ing patiently for his turn, and actually kills Santa, hence monster warring the Santa hat in the last song. but that might just be him altering reality.

  • People: *hates matpat* Me: wheres the nuke button so i can end the world with alot of nukes

  • 11:30 - plzplzPLZ be Yandere Simulator!

  • So basically, Boyfriend is Ness.

  • Here are the weeks in order with the story it goes Week 1 Week 3 Week 4 Week 2 Week 5 Week 6 Week 7

  • Maticus Pathew: The mall santa is Monster Monster, literally in the background in the same shot: Am I a joke to you?

  • when I heard that starting music- AAAAA

  • What about gametoons


  • Lol right now it’s 4:00am when he said can’t sleep lol

  • I would like I full song of the biggining

  • hey human souls into video games ur talking about human souls going into an arcade cabinet (how salty sunday goes)

  • fnf hd mod week 4 lamp-pole happens

  • Lmao the beginning of the video got me weak everytime I watch this

  • Ok Hu tao genshin impact theory

    • What do you want to know about her?

  • seat so that they rap them santa did die and remeber they want to still play dirty tricks

  • and they sit in santa

  • no hes actully monster is in backround

  • 3:33

  • Fnf is a pg 13 version of prappa the rapper or dance dance revolution

  • If Daddy's last name is Dearest and Mommy's last name is Mearest, does that means Girlfriend's last name is Gearest?

  • matpat be-bop-go


  • Plz don’t send hate

  • And that’s all I had to say but do better pat

  • Theory: Look at the monster’s neck closely. Look at the colour, doesn’t it seem oddly familiar to the skin of the background dancers? Well my theory is that the monster is an angry dancer that betrayed the Dearest family. Why else would the Lemon demon be trying to eat Girlfriend? I hope you try and expand this theory in the next FNF theory, MatPat. And yes, I would LOVE for you to do more! Not it either

  • They do not do experiments lemon monster did not come out of the mall Santa he is in the background crowd

  • U guys suck at making the actual lore theory’s I’ve been trying to keep quiet but can’t god

  • U guys suck at the lore here

  • The monster may have also set up the Santa, he was innocent, but the demon tricked the family into thinking otherwise to set up a trap.

  • No one: me at the beginning of the video: *yes parrapa the rapper is fnf now*

  • I already want a Scott Pilgrim/Suckerpunch-like movie about this video game

  • my friday night funkin freeplay menu is gonna be a mess

  • What 0-0

  • Your video made me miss newgrounds

  • Did you just used the biltmore mansion as the background 7:34

  • I want to have something there's two monsters so means monster is growing army of them

  • Be bop go

  • thank you for making theory videos on this extremely interesting lore. I know it is your job, but thanks again because it is dope, might I say!

  • Monster one goal is to eat girlfriend. If he eats her he will maybe get more power to overthrow the parents

  • 0:08 made a good rap... a small rap

  • Sorry but I forgot your name but when you get serious about everything it actually scares me like you’re actually scary when you get serious

  • Hey nice I watch that guy too

  • I don’t know why but I keep replaying Mat’s rap at the beginning 🥲

  • I hope they port it to console...

  • Jesus Loves you

  • could have given them names.. the non names is kinda an old trope at this point

  • good ol parappa the rappa

  • me: there is no best int-

  • Santas Krampus :0

  • @12:54

  • I don’t even like this game, but I’m still hooked!

  • Mall Santa is DEAD! He is not the lemon guy!

  • I pressed spacebar. I have now cringed

  • umm how do you play this game on a computer

  • Love how when he’s so wrong that the devs come in and tell hims so and he’s still like nope I’m right the people that made the game at wrong

  • Fun fact: bf can speed English but he is anti-social sooo beep skidoo bop

  • 13:04 it could be that he put her in the virtual world to keep the monster away from her, knowing that the boyfriend who was able to beat him would do just fine holding off the spirits he trapped there who couldn’t beat him. They may have been trapped in GF’s dating sim because they tried to date GF and lost to the dad so he put them in a dating sim so they could date GF virtually but not in reality cuz they weren’t good enough… GF’s knowledge of the sim’s world and BF’s ability to defend her while she’s there make it a safe place to keep them from the monster. Or if the theory of him sending failed BF’s there is wrong it could be senpai’s personal prison because he tried to date GF even after losing to dad which meant he did it without dad’s knowledge or permission and so was trapped in the dating sim to be stuck always dating GF only ever in a virtual setting…

  • Bro... Pablo Sanchez? That takes me waaaaay back

  • 0:51 ayo ranboo, fundy, nagito, kokichi- what are you doing in FNF?!?!?

  • more fnf!!!

  • I just thought Girlfriend's parents wanted to sit in Santa's seat

  • Tom fulps face was spirit, if anyone didnt know that.

  • Lemon demon: “hey man, I’m gonna eat your girlfriend” CoryxKenshin: “NONO..YOU WILL NOT EAT MY GIRLFRIEND”

  • Me who already knew all the lore:

  • it's pretty obvious why they're pointing a gun at mall Santa, they're holding him at gunpoint to perform this whole battle in the mall. they're sitting in the mall santas chair
