You may be thinking, "Hey MatPat, don't we already know everything about Crying Child?" No, Theorists, we do NOT and you proved it! "Crying Child" is what we've referred to the victim of the Bite of '83 as since the beginning but that child has a name! A name I have figured out! This is one of the oldest mysteries of the franchise and I am sure that we've cracked it wide open! Theorists, no FNAF mystery will go unsolved as long as I am on the case.

  • I feel that the name "Evan" goes along with the crying child's name very well but we have to think about the con's of this theory, now the evidence about the Jake story is heavily helpful in a way seeing that Jake's father name is Evan and he has a brother named Michael, but we also have to think about Jake's father more, if he is the crying child in a different universe then that would throw everything and I mean everything we've learned so far except from Scott's proven evidence out of the window. My first reason for saying this is that if it somehow does have something to due with all the evidence it would be illogical, I say this because how could the crying child be in the military if he literally has the front part of he's brain chomped off I mean you couldn't say surgery because how would they be able to attach all those nerves together again, also why would the military recruit someone with that serious of an injury without first having heavy precautions that would be set. That's just what i came up with for right now and im heavily sure there are many whole's in this Con theory but this is just something i came up with watching this video but pretty solid evidence i can't wait for for the next video. 😄

  • Hers a theory. So Micheal has an older brother which died named Terrance Afton. So if you go to the place where most FNAF videos are made which is Gacha club, the story consists mostly on micheal. Now the theory the reason why micheal bullied CC with the FOXY mask was to tell him secratly that MICHEAL is NIGHTMARE FOXY. this has a connection with his dead brother.

  • Ok, so I have this theory. Basically, William only wanted daughters. So when Mike was born, William was upset since he wanted a daughter. He decided to torment Mike for the rest of his life. Then Elizabeth was born. William was so happy he made her a whole robot (but William being William had to make it a murder machine) So eventually William wanted another daughter, so when Crying Child was born William just completely snapped, and made the Nightmare animatronics to torment him. And William went so insane that he built a whole fake version of his own house. And every night William would take the poor cyring child to that place. That's really it. I know it's all over the place but I could be on to something I don't know.

  • Hey MatPat, I took a look at the most recent image on Scott's website and upon closer inspection, there is something shown on the bottom right-hand tv screen. I'm not exactly sure what it looks like, but it could be some sort of face looking directly at the camera which could be referring to security tv screens. That could possibly confirm that it is in a mall and if it is a face, it could be Glitchtrap overlooking Vanny. I know that may be a stretch, but it could be possible. There was something on the left side of the tv screen, that if you look very closely, resembles an eye. Something is telling me, whatever is showing on that screen could be important. Not to mention, in a few other screens, there's a purplish color, specifically on the tv screen to the left. Another thing, looking at the conversation and those last two lines "have you selected one?" and "I have." could be hinting towards the possibility that Vanny has chosen a victim and that victim is Gregory. I think the second Security Breach trailer made that clear. I may be reading too much into this, but it's something for you to think on.

  • MATPAT MATPAT THIS IS an EMERGENCY If u seen the trailer for fnaf security breach u might know what im talking about. I think i just solve something!!!!! at a scene where u can see a creepy hand on the ground behind a cabinet(i think its a cabinet) I think i know who's hand is that ITS WILLIAM, here are the reasons: 1.the sharp claws are springtrap's claws because when the fire started and fazbears u can see most of the animatronics have sharp claw example scrap baby and u know that William is springtrap and he has been through to FIRE AND HE BECOME PENUT HEAD!!!! 2. As u can see closely, the arms are purple and my theory is, when i the minigames u can see William becoming more and more purple same goes as Micheal and u know that micheal afton is rottening, so william must me rottening to right? PLEASE DO A VIDEO ABOUT THIS IM VERY CONFIDENT WITH MY THEORY thanks for everything matpat

  • Hey MatPat! Long time fan here! Just wanna ask you a quick question - one of my favorite FNAF videos GT made was the one about the original book trilogy possibly revealing that the crying child, the house in FNAF 4, and the mustard man are not Afton, but Emily (with mustard man being Henry, not William, and Michael being Henry's son), but I noticed that moving forward you went back to calling Michael "Michael Afton" and the crying child as William's son. I guess I found it oddly inconsistent of you. Just wanna know which one are we supposed to stick with in your theories now? Ngl I'm definitely in the Emily camp, but I wanna hear it from you :) cheers!

  • I think what it means by " he is really intense about making money " is that micheal from the story is the same character from pizzeria simulator that you play as and that is also supposed to be michael afton so I think the michael in the real jake story is actually micheal afton and not just scott reusing names to throw us off like how the name jeremy is

  • Now i may be completely wrong, but we see an action figure that Gregory is inside of freddy. Meaning could gregory could die while inside of Freddy causing his soul to be lost inside of him? (the main theory is he could die inside of the freddy suit causing his soul to be stuck inside of him)

  • not a theory (yet) but a theme I noticed in ALL the Fazbear Fright books: Each of the three stories have something in common in order of the story: Story 1: The main character has regret and deals with the consequences for actions or feelings they do or have toward family or friends. Story 2: A character (usually the main) is body swapped or replaced with an animatronic (nearly all are established animatronics) Story 3: Someone (usually the main) dies by an animatronic.

But fnaf 4 wasn't in a bedroom it was in a hospital as you could see a drip in one of the nights. This is just a conclusion i put together :D thanks for listening

  • I may be wrong but going back to one of your last theories, and the info that is laid out for us. Isnt crying child Henry's son. Because we now know that the house from Fnaf 4 is Henry's (due to the books), shouldn't the crying child who is trapped in the house be Henry's son not Afton's. This probably makes no sense and I'm no expert but just my thoughts. Ps. Thanks for reading the books so indent have to

  • Before you get mad at me for this, just listen. We know Aston is springtrap, since in ucn it called scraptrap “Afton” and scaptrap is springtrap who is purple guy. But what if mustered man is William and purple guy is mike? When does it actually say that purple guy is WILLIAM afton? This would seem to solve a few points that have bothered people, although I am not saying that this is definite. Just think about it and what it can mean for the lore. Please like this so Mattpat sees it. The only time it would be weird for the games is in ucn in the old man consequences part where afton is screaming “mike.” Other than that I don’t see anything in the games that disproves this. Again, just something I would like for people to think about.
