Natemare is Natewantstobattle's unofficial but well-known alter ego. Natemare first made his cameo in the popular Mangled music video, and featured Natemare tying MatPat- from another YouTube channel called Game Theory- to a chair and terrorising him. It must've been pretty convincing, as Mangled is one of the most popular of Nate's videos. Natemare is popularly portrayed as seen in the Mangled video- black makeup around his eyes and dark purple streaks running down his cheeks. Considering Mangled is a FNaF 2 song, it's safe to assume this style was inspired by the Marionette, an iconic FNaF character. Many fans, however, consider this to be a canon appearance of Natemare, however Nate has not made his intentions clear yet. It's probably safe to assume that Natemare was just a makeup idea, and the fans made it into something much bigger.
