I believe mike schimdt might be the victim of the bite of '87
One of the functions of the frontal lobe is reconizing the consequences of good or bad decisions and since the '87 victim got his/her brain damaged we can assume that mike is the victim because he keeps coming back.
But that is only my theory, what do you think?

Explain how Mike is the victim and why would he return to the pizzeria to get the nightwatch job?
Your theory has no connections to Mike.

Again without the frontal lobe thing plus he thought he would be away from the animatronics (although that only covers the first night)

I like the idea. It makes some sense and adds to the creepiness of the game.

thanks but i just discovered damage on the frontal lobe may cause the loss of ability of making voluntary movements

Well, I do support this theory, as I have seen many cases of the human brain 're-wiring' itself to accommodate damage, meaning that Mikes brain may have been able to repair the motor control area by re-locating it. Though for an area such as the frontal-lobe, the brain can only repair so many of its functions, and most likely have left out the good/bad judgement.

I don't really think so...

There's virtually no evidence in the game that supports this theory. When the Phone Guy mentions the bite of 87, he doesn't say anything about that being Mike, and it seems rather unbelievable that Fazbear Entertainment would hire the very person who caused them such a huge PR problem.

We could all speculate why Mike keeps coming back to the Pizzeria each night, but, really, the simple answer is that, if he didn't, we wouldn't have a GAME to play.

Also, realistically, nobody would survive the Bite of 87 anyway. Having your skull smashed open, your frontal lobe bitten and sheared off would be way too traumatic for your body to even hope of surviving. And even if you did survive, I think you'd be a vegetable. Cause we're not talking about an injury to the frontal lobe, we're talking a forceful removal of it, in which a person's skull was broken, flesh riped, and brain bitten.

I think the damage would be worse than just simple "decisions impairments" personally...

I understand what you are saying, however, the previous guard 'may' have been exagerating when he said the human body can live without the frontal lobe, in other words, it could have just been the skull removed and the brain merely damaged, not removed.

On the other hand, they may not have known that Mike was the victim when he signed up (maybe a name change or they never got his last name), or they were desperate enough to look over the event, as I said, the brain is a marvelous organ able to make new pathways and connections to accomadate for damage, I for one am lucky to be able to see thanks to this.

The frontal part of the skull is the Frontal Bone. The Phone Guy clearly says the Frontal Lobe. There is practically no ambiguity about what he means. One of the animatronics bit somebody in the head hard enough to practically shear their skull and take a chunk of their brain or damaged to the point it had to be removed post hoc. The Phone Guy doesn't appear to exaggerate about anything else in the game. He states clearly that the animatronics are trying to catch you to stuff you into a suit, which happens if you lose the game.

How could they have not known it was Mike?

According to the lore, the public response to the event was so bad that they were losing money and desperately trying to get people back into the Pizzeria. We can assume that what happened was headline news because of this (in addition to the murders too). I just don't see how the company could realistically go through the Bite of 87 without even knowing the name of the victim. Clearly the employees know the story (as evidenced by Phone Guy mentioning it in passing), so it'd hard to buy that, if it was Mike, that they wouldn't recognize him or his name. And anything about a name change is just speculation.

The brain is indeed a marvelous organ, capable of compensating for damage, no argument there. However, after losing the entire Fronal Lobe after it was torn out by one of the animatronics, I have a distinct feeling that the damage would be much worse than impaired decision making. In fact, I think the victim would be handicapped to the point that they couldn't live on their own, much less hold a job, never mind night watch at Freddy Fazbear's Pizza.

Honestly, I think Mike returning is just a game mechanic for the gameplay to work.

Either that or he's incredibly in debt and needs any money.

"its suprising how someone can live without their frontal lobe (or something like that)" Logic- use it
*EDIT: maybe mike recovered from the bite, but stays in like a wheelchair or something. And maybe the phone guy doesnt know who it is OR company rules state that you shall not name names

That isn't the quote.

"But then there was The Bite of '87. Yeah. I-It's amazing that the human body can live without the frontal lobe, you know?"

Where are you getting "or something like that" from? There's no ambiguity about what he means. He's perfectly clear about it. The person's frontal lobe was removed. That means it was bitten off or so horribly damaged by the bite that it had to be removed. And if that's the case, it's extraordinarily likely that Mike would be in no shape to hold a job.

Everything else in your post is speculation that isn't supported by the lore. Unless some new information comes in from the sequel, we have no virtually no reason to think that Mike is the bite victim. There's literally nothing said in the game that indicates it is him, and it makes much more sense if it wasn't him.

Scott did say that Mike or the phone guy was related to the murdering of the five children. If Mike was the bite victim it would be too coquincedental for Mike to be the murderer and bite victim and still be allowed the night shift job or having both the phone guy and Mike related to events that previously happened. It seems too far fetched if they were both related.

He did? Where?

I found it in the Artwork of Five Nights at Freddy's. It was an image of an email. I don't know if it is still there but a brief on the email was that a fan of fnaf had contacted Scott via email asking for a little bit of lore on fnaf as the fan described it "the community was loosing faith in fnaf and wanted some inspiration". From this Scott replied saying "Mike or the phone guy is related to one of the articles on E. Hallway". I'm sorry I can't give you a link to an image of the email but I swear it is true. You can take my word on it or not.

If you do some hunting on Google you may be able to find it as it would probably be very popular in the fnaf community.

People have survived injuries to the brain where the skull is literally crushed and CSF is pouring out. A kid got a bullet through the brain (Very traumatic, bullets create traumatizing damaging ripples through flesh, it went through his brain) and survived.

A swift bite of the frontal lobe would more than likely crush the skull as oppose to "slice" it off. He doesn't specify how much damage is done, could very well be a portion of the frontal lobe. The guy is vague with the details.

Also, the frontal lobe is responsible for much more than simply "good/bad" decisions, so this theory is just.. odd.

Anyways, possible to survive that type of injury? Possibly, we've seen people lose half their brains and survive.
