he would be a good fit right?
What's his power going to be? Jumpscare us to death? Sorry, but I'll take Ghostface doing that anyday. Fnaf had it's moment in the spotlight. And as much as I love Fnaf, it doesn't belong in DbD whatsoever.
His power is to lock a survivor in the killer shack where all they can do is board up one door at a time.
He's the only animatronic that works since he's possessed by a serial killer.
People have made a million and one posts about this: the answer is usually a resounding "no." Practically the only people I see that like the idea, save for a couple, are already fans of it and obviously are already on board.
Also want to add, it's odd that there's a fresh new account with 1 post putting this thread up... Makes me wonder if this is the OP from one of those other threads.
If they would ever add a fnaf character I really hope it wouldn't be springtrap. It'd be better for a classic character or they could do what they did for legion. The killer could be freddy and there could be bonnie and chica as skins.
You know people hate FNAF because it's mostly popular with kids. And yeah it's pretty cringy and the game itself is shallow BUT it's also the single most relevant horror game in the last decade or 2. They deserve representation. Im not a FNAF fan but i would say if anyone i would want Freddy added since he's the main guy...bear robot demon thing. Also the map would be pretty [BAD WORD] dope, im on board for that alone!
Yes, he would fit. A lot of people come into contact with the smallest problem with a FNaF killer, and then just give up and say no. I get it if you don't want a FNaF killer out of your personal preference; That's perfectly fine. When people cheat FNaF out of it's potential, that's when I get pretty upset.
The map would be cool. I just wouldn’t look forward to the influx of ragey little kids since FNAF is so huge with them. Or maybe I’m just triggered from when Ninja started playing and brought over the Fortnite kids lol.
I think Springtrap would be the best fit out of the Fnaf franchise for DBD. He would easily become my favorite killer if he was added simply because I absolutely love the thought of being able to play as him.
I mean, I didn't really notice any shift in the community when Stranger Things was announced, but I guess every community is different, so there isn't really a way to tell what can happen. Also, Ninja played DbD? I gotta check that out sometime. It seems like he'd have strong reactions to the game.
Stranger Things isn’t as popular with little kids, as far as I’m aware. But who knows. Maybe FNAF would be fine. When I hear about a franchise that’s popular with children, my mind just automatically goes to the angry Fortnite kids who try to mimic Ninja’s ragey personality. And I would hate for that to come to DBD lol. At least it doesn’t have open mic.
Didn’t they just add Bonnie to the game? I’m already running around as a crazed blue bunny~
I know FNaF used to be popular with kids, but I have no clue if that's still the case today. FNaF has been a thing for quite some time, maybe some of them grew up? We'll never know, but I do have to say, I definitely agree that "Fortnite kids" would not be fun to deal with.
Considering they've made a Chapter from a game, I wouldn't say this is impossible. It was pretty popular for a moment, but certain youtubers and the influx of kids (for whatever godawful reason) getting into the game made the game get a bad rep.
It's a great horror game series, and I'd personally love to see Springtrap make it as a killer. No clue what the power could be, or who the survivor could be.
I'd rather have something iconic and deserving of being in the game. FNAF isn't even scary, and it was only made popular by Youtubers forcing themselves to scream on camera.
You mean just like DBD?
I think that is the only character that could be added to the game from FNaF. I think it could work. But some people don't want it because they don't want the baggage from the fanbase... even though we already have a pretty toxic one anyway...
Really? Cause honestly the nightmare animatronics are imo the scariest looking ones in the series.
I think its more of the fact that Springtrap is an actual murderer, while the other ones are just spirits.
That's the point of them, but they still don't look scary.
DBD isn't scary, but it wasn't popularised by people acting like 8 year olds on camera.
Honestly... kinda want it to happen just so Matpat can try to connect the Fnaf lore with Dbd lore...
Would be a fun video. 🤣
I really don't get the reaction people have against Fnaf or the xenomorph. It's like when a new character gets in smash, but "oh no, it's from FE again".
I just don't get it.
No one has any problem with alien.
About 2/3 of the internet sees fnaf and instantly think of the fan base and how game theory is trying to solve a mystery that can't be solved because the story changes completely with every game release so it can be milked for cash.
Its like the lament configuration. Once its solved the person who solves it dies. Or in this case the series dies.
If I remember correctly, a lot of the FNaF community also dislikes game theory.
You would be surprised. I sure was after I and other people brought it up. People have several issues with Alien. Ranging from "not a slasher" to "not humanoid" to "the alien is too powerful" to "alien doesn't work in a dbd style game".
Granted, this was before demogorgon, now the new counterpoint is "alien is pointless since demo does all it would do"
Spring trap is perfect fit as a paragraph. Before he got “killed” in the suit he was a serial killer so the entity would have an interest in him, lore wise.
I’m not sure what the hate is against potential licensed characters. I for one would like to see Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, although deathslinger has sort of made him redundant.
Dude, is it so hard to understand nobody wants to have their favorite iconic horror stories and characters sullied by being product with a super cringe, glorified creepy pasta?
I'm sorry, but that's the absolute point of disbelief I will not Cross with DBD. It's Zany, has quirky imagery and goofy cosmetics like Dwelf, but the moment I see a [BAD WORD] Chicka running around like a fetid big bird, I quit! [BAD WORD] it, I think I can stand by this one.
knowing how the fnaf games are and how Scott thinks, im sure he'd have the dbd devs put a lore clue somewhere in the map. i can see it now
"if you turn on the generator in the main party room and the parts and service room exactly 6 minutes into the match, a special door will open up that leads downstairs. this is the ONLY way to reach this room and when you get in there, its none other than good ol William Afton himself, sitting there in the freshly locked Spring Bonnie suit"
i watch too much game theory. and fnaf stuff.
So, why are you still here? Or did you not see the new legion skin?
This "glorified creepy pasta" thing... you do realize I can say this about every licensed killer in this game right? They are all creepy pastas that happened to get a movie a long-ish time ago so people accepted them as icons. If there were a franchise of killer animatronics from a pizzaria that started in the 80s or 90s this conversation would not be happening.
What separates these "icons" from creppy pastas if not public awareness of them?
Do you really not realize this distinction you're making is entirely subjective?
