For theory voting on all other categories, see theory voting .
This page is inactive due to a decision to move theories to Pastel Forum. It will remain on the Wiki until the moving process is finished.

This page contains all theories that are considered confirmed or debunked. These theories are typically not voted on, since a theory's status is considered complete once it is confirmed or debunked; however with the progression of the Submachine series every once in a while the theories must be reconsidered as new facts and information arise.


You can vote for a theory to be in one of six categories, sorted by their status. Use these status descriptions when placing your vote.

  • Confirmed (This theory was proven true with the release of additional information or a new Submachine game, or is obviously correct)
  • Likely (There is evidence in favor of the theory)
  • Still alive (There is evidence for and against the theory)
  • Doubtful (There is evidence against the theory)
  • Debunked (Enough evidence against this theory to label it dead)
  • Humorous (For theories that are just plain silly) (This category does not appear next to the others; add it into the "Debunked" category and clearly state that you find it humorous)

Each theory will have a different window of time to receive votes, after which the votes will be tallied and the status will be updated. Once a theory is confirmed or debunked, it will not be re-opened for voting until another special jailbreak session is held.

To vote, please add your user name [or your Pastel-forum user name if you are a member of Pastel-forum] under the section you choose to vote, and add one to the number of votes. First category to 8 votes wins or the majority after two weeks, whichever comes first. In case of a a tie, we'll go with doubtful over debunked, still alive over doubtful, still alive over likely, and likely over confirmed. If there is a three way tie, the category closest to the middle of the three will be chosen.

Please be sure to read the entire theory before voting.


  1. You must be registered on the Wiki to vote. Votes made by nonregistered users will be removed. Votes made by a user in place of another user will also be removed, and votes only cast on Pastel Forum at do not count.
  2. Theory owners are not allowed to vote on their own theory.
  3. Vote on this page only; this will help keep track of all votes in one spot. Do not vote on individual user theory pages. Statuses on individual pages will be tallied and changed after all categories are completed.


  1. If you are voting for a theory to be confirmed or debunked, you are encouraged to state a reason for your choice (these categories will put a theory out of voting for a long time, so it is good to back up your vote with a reason).
  2. You do not need to vote on every theory; however, try to vote on as many as possible (especially in the unvoted category).
  3. We recommend that you open the theory you want to vote for in a new tab so you can keep this page in the right spot and don't have to keep scrolling through all these theories to find the right one again and again.
  4. Which theories should I look at first?
    • In general, there are no specific theories that should be voted on first. However it is always nice to vote for Unvoted theories so they can hold a real status. Theories that obviously belong on one end of the spectrum or another should also be given some attention.
    • If the voter turnout is low, try to vote on theories that are actively being voted on (as in, other voters have voted on them this session).
    • Or just read as many as you can ;) You can change your vote for a theory anytime you would like, while the theory is open for voting.
