The Entity's weakness revealed and proved.

    I like this theory, made me imagine how cool it'd be if you were in the spirit world as wraith, you could see the entity in part. idk if spirit world users can see each other at any one time though.

    I always thought the Entity's weakness was tacos. 'Cause I mean, who could possibly resist?

    This is very interesting. One thing I've always wondered is where do the survivors go to when they escape through the gate? Do they go back to the real world, or do they just find themselves forever trapped within this nightmarish world, just they're safe for the time being? Another question, what lies beyond those gates?

    When survivors escape, they go back to the campfire. That's what lies beyond the gates.

    mini-update : I added some images and gifs back since I realised they were missing for some reason.

    So we just get Alan Wake up in here and we're all good, right?

  • LordGlintLordGlint Member Posts: 6,586

    @TheBretzel A thought crossed my mind after reading this. In the movie Hollow Man, it has Kevin Bacon's character turn invisible, much like the wraith, albit slower. The effects you describe from the wraith could simply be his internal parts becoming visible before his outermost skin and this comparison would also explain wraith's weakness to light, since invisible eyelids are worthless.

    I really like this theory but since EGC just came out and your theory about how doing generators weakens the entity then what about EGC the entity demonstrates it's power when all gens are done there and doesn't appear to be weak if not stronger.

  • Micheal_MyersMicheal_Myers Member Posts: 1,144

    Easy! The Entity Actually doesn't spawn on the windows nor the exit gates.

    The reason why you can't just shine the flashlight on it may because of 2 things

    1) The Thing Blocking the Exit Gates and Windows are actually spawned bars. That the Entity spawned to prevent the survivor to escape or keep going through windows.

    2) The reason why you cant just shine the light on it when it's about to kill a hooked survivor is because well... The entity spawned the flashlight in the first place. So, the flashlight can only be intense for the killers because the entity rewrites them (Like the Teachable Perks) So it's only bright to them because the entity made it to be, but that doesn't mean that the flashlight is so intense for the entity. So the entity made the flashlight low enough where it won't hurt the entity.

    Ik #2 got confusing but to make things short the entity rewrote the killers to be impacted by non-intense light.

  • RattmanRattman Member Posts: 1,194

    If Entity is vulnerable to light, same thing with her powers, as we can see with example of Wraith, Hag and Nurse, which was proven above. So, I call bullshit.

  • AetherBytesAetherBytes Member Posts: 2,177

    My only problem is that the Entity has clearly shown that at any time it can block the generators. If the entity has this power, why not always do it? The generators are made by the Entity as a means of generating hope. which we know for fact is what it feeds off. Same goes for the exit gates. If the survivors don't have a chance at escaping, then they have no hope, and thus no meal for the entity.

    While the entity is weak to light, the light is controlled by the entity in it's realm. I would agree on perhaps the gens do allow for creation of items in the realm that offer a means of escape or the like, except that the hatch now always spawns, a means of escape that we confirmed was *not* under the entity's control, when a single survivor is left, no matter how strong or weak the entity is.

    The entity creates everything via what is called auric cells (survivors have been known to collect and even manipulate these cells). I had a theory about the entity's true connection to these cells as it also says the entire trial is the entity, I feel these Cells respond to hope (which is why the entity feeds on hope, because it is one of these cells but not a normal one the entity is a queen auric cell (an intelligent one at that, giving rise to more and more AC from it's self). Auric cells are like a hive mind building block being controlled by the QAC (the entity) to take any shape necessary and it is the fact that auric cells are a hive mind that survivors can so easily manipulate them (Vigo litterally being able to make his/her own little hidey plane) just cut their connection with the queen and input your own directions (ie ensuring medkit in the first chest).

    I just discovered this thread and read it while listening to the lunar new year theme (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CulxhrlPBsM) and I had real chills! That's an amazing theory. I love the lore in general, I can't wait for the archives to be released into the game so we get even more lore!

  • TrueKn1ghtmar3TrueKn1ghtmar3 Member Posts: 1,143

    Adding to my post the manipulation of these cells could be why Vigo has evaded the entity so long as when the entity is near he could just turn the cells to his side (very dangerous to the entity if true) but as far as I know (and can anyone confirm) if Benedict knows how to manipulate them?

  • AetherBytesAetherBytes Member Posts: 2,177

    Benedict is thought to be dead or stuck in the void, where useless survivors and killers go.

  • AetherBytesAetherBytes Member Posts: 2,177

    I personally wouldn't send him there. I'm not sure if I've just been meeting potatoes or if I'm absolutely god at GF, but I can get the ability to work most of the time, even with the bug.

    Nice theory but there are some evident and non-negligible mistakes.

    Point 4 especially (the generator's one), is completely wrong. Devs have confirmed multiple times in their streams (have done so in their latest lore-based stream too) that everything you see in the Trial is made by the Entity itself except for the Survivors and the Killers. The Gens, the Escape Doors and the Hatch are made by the Entity in order to give Survivors a chance at escaping and are not constructed by any survivor. Those thing are just a manifestation of the Entity itself just like everyhing else around the map. Without them Survivors would have no hope to ever escpae a Trial and with no hope comes no feeding for the Entity. So point 4 is completely wrong.

    Items like Flashlights are also made by the Entity and given to the Survivors as a tool to increase their chance at surviving hence to increase the feeding the Entity can draw from them. So the Flashlight's light is also made by the Entity itself.

    I allways thought the entity weakness was stabbing the floor since the realms are made out of her

    good theory tho

  • GcarraraGcarrara Member, Mod Posts: 2,012

    Nice theory! I like your take on it! 😁

  • TrueKn1ghtmar3TrueKn1ghtmar3 Member Posts: 1,143

    Made of yes but specifically the auric cells that "form" its "body" at the time it is the trial you could argue that they aren't truly the entities body but an extension of

    We’re of to kill the entity the horrible entity of death 😃

    Hey Random but is it alright if I use this as a Video idea?

  • sirnewbingtonsirnewbington Member Posts: 78

    With the additions of killers like ghostface and myers(the shade), that can remove the red stain themselves. You could infer that they wouldn't be entirely controlled by the entity?

    The only question I have is, if the other survivors created the black lock, then why does the black lock lead to darkness and not to light?

    One thing I just remembered: There are fire barrels everywhere... why wouldn't a survivor take a stick and light it?

  • NeaKarlsson123NeaKarlsson123 Member Posts: 22

    Correct me if i'm wrong but does it not seem like the entity is weak with the eyes only it and don't ya think. It also explains that the killer is the entity because the entity can't see from the survivor's eyes which is why the entity is blocking the window's only when you are in chase :D

  • TrueKn1ghtmar3TrueKn1ghtmar3 Member Posts: 1,143

    The entity is not the killers already stated in the lore but good try tho
