For the sake of the story, let us forget about the fact that Anti is the creation of Jack’s imagination, and let us, theorize about him as if he was indeed a real being.
First appearance of Anti was in october 2015, in the thumbnails of Jack’s series of Fran bow (Crying blood,slit throat and various other, now canon Anti refrences are on the thumbnails)
So from that we can assume he’s been here for quite a while, right?
Well yes, but why did he make an official appearance in October 2016, why wait?
My assumption: More viewers, more power and more ways to expose himself.
I mean he could easily hypnotize Robin and make him edit glitches in, (that could’ve been done before but Anti couldn’t hypnotize “himself” with a mirror or something, also i don’t think the he has the same skill level as Jack in editing so he couldn’t do it himself.)
So first he started slow and did some twitter and tumblr posts (starting from the 12th of oct.) he gave us hints to the whole “say goodbye” stuff and hey, it was fun.
Then during the detention series he hopped in just so we wouldn’t forget about him and THEN he disappeared once more.
Now as you probably know Anti isn’t the only evil alternative, there’s also Dark (evil Mark).He came in during the valentines day video/interactive video game and he was most likely complaining about Anti getting all the attention (im not going to quote him just watch a video on youtube), so after that video Dark was getting ALL the attention, as he was also a cool character in the fandoms.
AND THEN PAX, WOOOOOOOO ANTI IS JEALOUS AND STRIKES AGAIN.
So clearly he wants attention, and he wants it constantly.
welp that’s my timeline, idk much, that’s all i’ve gotten, pls don’t attack me, let’s move on to the next topic.
He is not:
A split personality caused by a mental disorder.If he was he wouldn’t have been able to “revive” Jack or himself after slitting his throat, which can be lethal if left untreated.
A virus.Yes, the constant glitching might point to that but consider the fact that a virus has to be made by someone, it doesn’t just come out of thin air to corrupt your computer.Of course you could assume that Anti as a virus was created by Robin and then sent to Jack inside of a video file but that doesn’t match the timeline as Robin started working for Jack in April 2016(Anti appeared first in oct 2015).Plus, the virus would be too powerful for Robin to create as it has to change Jack’s appearance,alter his voice and movement which is close to impossible.
From this we can assume that he is not human, he uses Jack to be one, but in fact he is not.
Now this is the all known theory that Anti is a demon, Cliche i know but hey, it does make sense.He has inhuman powers to resurrect a person, can’t really explain that any other way (unless he’s Jesus hueheehe)
So he’s a demon, what can/will he do?
(now this is going to be deep so i’m not going to be making jokes anymore, sorry.)
He probably wants Jack to gain more subscribers, create a bigger influence than he already has made.By revealing himself Anti got Jack more attention, and my theory is that..
Anti is going to kill Jack, for real.
(IM NOT SAYING THAT JACK WOULD KILL HIMSELF FOR A FICTIONAL CHARACTER BUT IF ANTI WAS A REAL BEING THEN)
Think about it.Killing Jack would be the youtube equivalent of a terrorist attack to our fandom.I know personally people who would probably..commit suicide.. if Jack wasn’t here, and i only know a few, but i know that there’s a lot of people who Jack has had a positive and life changing influence on and their lives would crash if he wasn’t there.The overall good vibe in the community would die.
That would apply to both Felix’s and Mark’s fandoms as well.
See this is sad.I warned you about it.
Anti has made many reoccurring finger guns in glitches and “killed” Jack once.
Probably pointing to the fact that he’s going to make Jack commit suicide himself, and with that it’d be impossible for Anti to revive him since he would die instantly.
This is the reason Anti wants all the eyes on him, he wants all the people he could get to.Everyone he could have an impact on.
Again this is just a theory i don’t know what i’m talking about, there are MANY,MANY plot holes and just overall shitty explanations. I don’t know and i can’t assume what Jack will be doing in the future for Anti and maybe it’s better off that way.
In my personal opinion, Jack is using the Scott Cawthon sydrome, where he just rolls with the things the fandom has created and makes his own slightly altered version of it, letting the story unfold itself.
Peace out, sorry if this triggered you in any way.
Steps of making my Soldier75 Pulse Rifle! Its made from EVA foam in three different thicknesses; 1.2, 0.5 and 0.2 cm. Also a wooden broom stick for the barrel and a pvc pipe for the helix rockety dispencery
random things my fragile bi heart gets really emotional about: axton the commando, and the treatment of his sexuality in the game. just hear me out for a second.
like, for all intents and purposes axton is pretty much the most stereotypical video game character ever— a ruggedly handsome, confident-bordering-on-cocky, square-jawed white guy with a crew cut, a couple carefully placed facial scars, and a military career that’s probably just a bit too illustrious for his age.
but then he’s also canonically bisexual!! and not even on purpose originally, but because of a glitch that made him flirt with everyone instead of just the attractive female character the line was intended for.
and when fans saw this and were like, ‘oh this must mean axton’s supposed to be bi! awesome,’ the writers, instead of 1. freaking out and trying to quash those headcanons or 2. turning the situation into a gross queerbaiting mess (which seem to be the two things that happen most often), were like ‘oh, yeah, looks like axton is bi. let’s add some dialogue to the dlc that confirms this and make it irrefutably canon.’
and that was that. like, there was no uncharacteristically dramatic and emotional coming-out scene. no awkward forced romantic subplot with a male character to ‘prove’ he’s really bi. just a couple stupid and perfectly in-character lines about having dated lots of ‘people’ instead of specifically women and that quip about ‘guns and women… and sometimes dudes.’
and i just want to throw those moments in the face of every writer who’s ever claimed that it would be too hard to make a character bi, or that they can’t do it because it wasn’t the original intent of the character. all it took was two lines of dialogue for the bl2 team to confirm what players had already picked up on. it’s literally that easy and i’m just really tired of excuses for why characters ~can’t~ be bi!!!
