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.

  • guess im the crying child guys

    • WHAT

    • I mean Evan made my childhood

    • EvanTubeGaming huh funny WAIT

    • if anyone remembered the bite of 83 FAN animation they didnt contain the voice lines of the accual fnaf actors also they didnt sound british

    • @Jasmin Batajoy no that was never a name confirmed by scot that was the name of fans also gacha steros deciding to give him a name simular to c.c. scot never said his name was cgris. end of story

  • evandince

  • If you think about it golden Freddy has three spirits

  • There is a new trailer for security breach

  • can't wait for you to solve FNAF again in a month

  • Its chris

  • 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.

  • So now, who is Michael Afton?

  • 7:40

  • I would also hit my head

  • That's the most original intro ever

  • Wait Evan I keep seeing Chris as his name

  • Watching this as a Jake was weird.

  • The crying child is Chris

  • You know the blackbird book it could be relevant to the fnaf 4 since foxy always was in a closet and we don't know the child in the room. 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'm also not sure on the name Evan. In New security breach ad they say the name Gregory this is just a hunch? Could one of the animatronics be made out of golden freddy? :)

  • It's Kris afton

  • 2:06 need help child

  • I thought his name was Chris- Wait- where did the name Chris for C.C come from?-

  • 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

  • im just super shocked this is crazy

  • Me now: thinks security breach is the last game and that fnaf is close to being solved Me 20years in the future: “it’s far from over” Me 40 years in the future: “it’s never going to be over”

  • but doesnt crying child or evan or chris soul be in shadow freddy

  • Legit thought the intro was just MattPat finally losing his mind because of these FNAF videos.

  • AMAZING

  • I'm gonna need a new timeline at this point

  • evan

  • chrs.

  • I am going to *s c r e e c h.* Now I have to explain why I'm changing my Chris to Evan and have people attack me because either I don't ship Mennard or their just jerks. *F M L*

  • Line up all the family members names of the afton family and see if the letters make a name that's just a quess

  • By this point the definition of “solved FNAF” to Matt is just when he makes a discovery and assumes what will happen and crossing his fingers the next game is the last Scott makes.

  • It’s Ethan because it’s better than Evan

  • Speaking of c.c my friend had this theory if you look at this image: file:///var/mobile/Library/SMS/Attachments/af/15/81032371-65E8-446E-9C64-6C0CF7012737/IMG_8209.jpeg my friend saw two stripes like c.c in someone’s trailer, so she told the group chat cause yes- and since she barley watches you I told you for her I honestly just thin Gregory might have stripes on his shirt cause- l.I.f.e but yeah-

  • Hello everyone welcome to fan theory

  • What I thought it wwas Chris?

  • While watching fnaf 4 again (specifically markiplier) and I noticed that a kid actually had a spring bonnie toy that matched almost exactly with the plush trap toy in one of the books. It was in part 3 of markiplier's fnaf vid at 12:41 . Not sure if you got this, but wanted to put this up anyway

  • Well, that penny's intro was fun

  • EVAN

  • Where’s our DAD THORRY STOP WITH THESES BOKS TOO PROOF THORIES (sarcasm) but please more dad he’s got something going on

  • Gotta love Emotionally Repressed Child

  • The puppets name is not Charlie its Charlotte Emily

  • 1:42 my brain really just quoted that dude from veggietales... "they've never given me a name. i've been here since day one and i STILL don't have a name."

  • The crying child name is chris

  • Shitposting on another level XD

  • Honestly fnaf needs to come to an end it feels like it’s just getting dragged out now

  • My life is over why I thought the crying child's name was Chris like Chris Afton

  • The lore in a nutshell: *confusion*

  • Wolfy: it must be Evan! Me: it must be Evan! Mattpatt: it just can’t be Evan! Also me: it just can’t be!

  • 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.

    • wait, are you saying that there are 2 springtraps?

  • haha my name is Evan

  • The game theorists, Ruining your childhood since 2011.

  • Can crying child be Michael

  • I have come to RIP everyone’s souls that is in my way!!!!! Vengeance SHALL BE MINE

  • MatPat: blackbird was the saddest Me: *laughs in The Cliffs*

  • How big brain do you have to be to come up with this?!

  • It’s reddit, it’s a hard maybe

  • What if jake is the crying child just Scott changed it to trick us into thinking there not relatable

  • I always thought crying child was chris

  • Sooooo, we gonna see a video about the new trailer or what? :3

  • Bendy

  • yes im sold with crying child being evan

  • And 4 days later fnaf security breach trailer gets released... Coincidence...I think not.

  • I just missed alot of stuff

  • crying child is chris afton

  • Make's sense because the foxy magazine and the marks, the marks are from Mike Afton and the magazine of foxy, Mike the brother of the crying child ''EVAN'' and foxy. Mike Afton, foxy bro.

  • I would think that the tally marks by Micheal would be a or the thing used to solve for the name because even if the kid didn't know his name his brother would definitely know it

  • r/chonkers

  • So, I have a thought. Matpat, if you see this, please hear me out. We all know how we are missing one Afton family member: Mrs. Afton. We have already established that Ballora may be a Mrs. Afton stand-in. We also know that Scott Cawthon doesn't do coincidences. So when we are introduced to the ONLY possibly adult female character in the franchise, it triggered something. Vanessa, who we do not know the last name of, might be an Afton? So, I looked at Ballora and nothing really stood out except for the song. So I re-listened to the song and may have found something. I know this song can be interpreted different ways, but this one does make sense. "Why do you hide inside your walls", we are playing as Gregory, a kid who is hiding behind anything he can so he doesn't die. "When there is music in my halls" We are in a pizza plex, it is most likely going to be loud with music. "All I see is an empty room, no more joy an empty tomb" All the other kids are gone, no more children playing, no more joy. No one is there making it an "empty tomb" for us. This all sounds great and all, but then my next question would be: "Why isn't Ballora in Fnaf VR?" Mat, your roast may come back to haunt you. Could it be that Ballora isn't in Fnaf VR because then there would technically be two of the same character? We know that in that game we are listening to "tape girl" or Vanessa. So wouldn't it be weird for us to be talking to Vanessa and to be fighting against a "Vanessa stand-in". So maybe that is why she isn't there. I feel as if this is just a bunch of loose ends that I'm trying to tie together, but this is all I got.

  • Please move on.

  • LOL

  • YES I DOOOOOOO

  • I did not think that fnaf was still a thing

  • I know the theory is 2 spirits in golden freddie (GF) but I think theres only one. So the crying child from FNAF4 is in GF then in sister location night 4 you're trapped in a spring lock suit. If that turns out to be the GF suit then it means GF got scooped, the only way it isnt the GF suit is if theres a third spring lock suit we never saw. Because we saw spring trap alive at the end of sister location when michael calls out to his father. Then when Enard enters the player he leaves but the purple guy doesnt die. Could that be because his brothers spirit stays behind and keeps him alive?

  • Cassidy looked scary

  • Hey mat pat I have a theory about fnaf 4 what if we are playing as michael afton and not the crying child. I think that he is having nightmares about what he did to his brother a burning reminder of what him and his friends did. Like you said when you said that fnaf 4 doesn't make sense if it were real. Shouldn't the crying child be in the hospital why would he be at his house and he is sleeping in the crying child's room because he misses his brother.

  • I’m really thankful 4 ur work on ur vids it’s really good

  • I thought his name was Chris/Christopher

  • Mat needs to be a voice actor for fnaf that skit at the beginning was amazing

  • #Evan

  • Guys I just realised if fnaf vr confirmed that the fnaf games are all a cover up story doesn't that mean that the bite of 87 was a cover for what actually happened. If this is wrong don't mind me I'm just dumb.

  • The crying child is chris

  • The real theory should be where the heck the name chris came from.

    • the name "Chris" appeared on some channel and then GoldBox made an animation using audio from that channel. And since there was no alternative, people started to use the names "Chris" "Terrence" although no word was said about them.

  • I don't know if you've solved this theory yet but...what if the mysterious pizza place you mentioned in one of your theories is Circus Baby's Pizza World?

  • :00000 HIS NAME IS EVAN I HAVE A FRIEND NAMED THAT I THOGHT HIS NAME WAS CHIRS

  • Dear MatPat, it would be an honour to quickly draw your attention to something that is yet to be solved and may be important to the lore. Going back in time to sister location on night 4 we're put in an unknown springlock suit. I've been wonder since I played night 4 what it was if you could solve it I would be very thankful Edit: please like so matpat will see

  • If I had a nickel for every time matpat used the sentance "What We MISSED!" in his titles, I'd have Three Nickels Which isn't alot, but its weird that it happened three times.

  • isn’t the name of the crying child chris afton

  • guys, has anyone else noticed that the bottom of the word search says "what is your name"?

  • Evan gang rise up

  • Do you ever think if scott is watching matpats videos about fnaf and when he theorises something right scott claps his hands slowly?

  • Hey i have a theory. Although there is alot of similarities between crying child and Evan but the fnaf security breach action figure "Glamrock freddy and Gregory" Gregory looks alike the crying child. Brown hair with black eyes. And this could mean Gregory had his first bad memory of the pizeria here and was scared from the animatrinics.

    • about 30+ years have passed since the bite, so Gregory is not C.C . But I will not argue, the theory is pretty good

  • I think crying child isn't Evan but maybe jake

  • Mat what are your thoughts about the new fnaf breach game on ps5

  • Matpat, i dont really know if you have adressed this before( yes, I went and looked all the videos) and from what I know, you have never really introduced the idea that maybe the reason why the lore book asks:" do you remember your name" is because Michael( crying child) might have never been his child from the beginning.How come do we not know that the bite of 83 was William Afton's intentions to take away sammy( henry's kid) from him as retribution from baby killing elizabeth? Its possible that William knew about this since Henry's kid, Charlotte was built as a robot and also that different memories could have been faked to say that his name is Michael....It makes sense since him escaping from his place( henry's house) because of William's help.... also, have you noticed that the crying child did not have friends at his supposedly "birthday party"? I will also assume that the one who brought friends and actually had fun at the place was foxy bro....mmmmm sorry if im wrong

  • WHAT THE WHEN HE SAID BRING OUT UR TAMPERINS I HAD A TAMPERIN IN MY HAND XD

  • Anyone else notice this? Ok I know sister location is very old and that but I just wanted to point this out that.....this might be crucial to the timeline......in sister location the two technicians were killed and in fnaf 2 or 3 phone guy mentions about two technicians being killed.

  • My name is Elizabeth My Brothers name is Evan 🤔😬😳

  • what if Evan is actually just a ghost and when he is out Cassidy takes over and maybe evan gave his son the brain tumor

  • shouldn't it be jake then?

  • I think Chris was the original in the golden freddy suit but then he was kicked out by Cassidy and then shadow Freddy a clone of golden freddy
