    the simple explanation for the "yu has no shadow" thing is that he does have one. As the silent portagonist, he doesn't HAVE a side that he doesn't accept, therefore doesn't need to accept it and already has a persona, or theres an unmentioned event before the game in which he has accepted who he is

    You missed an easter egg, in ultimate custom night, one of the lines when toy chica kills you is: "where's my beak? logged in you're forehead of course" and then she laughs. That means that chica used her beak to kill someone in the sewer then she died. That also explains why glamrock chica is so dirty, the person glamrock chica attacked obviously tried to defend themselves making her dirty in the prosess.
