  • hey u said carrion is completely fiction cuz it would be very hot for all biology things inside at 15:00 but its not like any animal or plant it has hundereds of mouth lung or what ever makes more surface area and its not a solid cube it can change its shape from a big blob of flesh into a caterpillar like flesh

  • Before I Finish the video I'll drop my opinion on the Monster Of Carrion. The Monster Is Most Likely Multiple Entities From Earth That Have Been Experimented On And Turned into The Fleshy Blob That Is Carrion, And the Items We Collect Around the Game Are Also Other Carrions, Which Are Different From Us Hence The New Abilities

  • but what if the netherite is on the molecular scale weaved with the diamond if so then if the diamond shatters there will be a barrier on both sides keeping the diamond together it might have indents but it will be solid beacuse nethrite could be a carbon alloy and carbon carbon bonds are strong so no leakes

  • wait if the Carrion monster would be BURNING from all the growth in biomass, wouldn't it just realize that water can cool it down and start living in the ocean? hunting all sorts of fish? what if it ate a whale in the arctic? would it become a whale-sized monstrosity that would produce as much heat as a nuclear power plant?

  • ME: writes my own theory also me: starts with saying ''Hi its me a new theorist'' (I didnt even knew there r comics until I watched this vid so I talk about game) Well I think there was always a human inside ''carrion'' cuz it has flashbacks inside those machines and I dont get memories of eating grass when I eat meat so its probably carrion's own memories while being a human. And what if our ''monster'' just wanted to be a human again or in other words it was half-human half-monster (a human's consciousness inside a tentacle body) this also explains its high intelligence and knowledge of ''human engineering'' (like how to open a door or using levers). And we dont have an ending that u see a SCP-610 infected city But our ''monster'' became a human and now it's just walking at street like anyone which is a not an apocalypse ending a flexible ending that makes you (use ur imagination and) choose what ending u want: if u want to kill every human : Congratulations now ur a spy among humans and u can kill as many as u want if u think like me and say ''there was a victim, a human victim'': U win he became a human and lives a [relatively] normal life. And we dont get dna ''upgrade'' from anywhere in game we just get bigger with eating. U just ''upgrade'' with eating things that is inside a tube looks like u. BTW dont understand me wrong video is good and I just talk about my own theory ''carrion is human'' BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY A FAN THORY

  • I made a little mini theory of my own if you want ultimate custom night and jump scared by or if you even can jump scare you the voices of him will be Henry Mike help have you considered that that was William Afton in hell crying for help think about it we know that Mike is William Afton son and Henry is his work partner so it makes sense if William Afton is old man consequences stuck in HE double hockey sticks or in some kind of a bit video game or some torture by the one you should not have killed I have full evidence it’s a literally everywhere to the screams of help you wouldn’t said it yourself William Afton is like Separated so technically that could be a piece of William Afton stuck in some kind of video game or torture or whatever for naff can give us so that’s my little mini theory
