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.

  • Hey matpat I know this dose not matter but you can tell that there are different FNAF locations cuz in fnaf2 and fnaf1 you can see the difference between the heads with freddy whither freddy has more of a tall head and normal freddy has more of a squished head so that kinda proves there was a location before fnaf 2 Love your content hope you see my comment

  • Honestly, I don't agree on most of the new theories, That's because I try to make my own. And seeing probably last mystery of FNaF being solved is quite sad for me, I just can't accept it, I hope there are some secrets in FNaF 1 2 or 3 that haven't been discovered, I don't want to FNaF just end.

  • If someone has the logbook please try this thank you Try going from the first set of tally marks and the number of the page and put that into the thing with foxy then for the next set of tally’s take that and the number of pages between the tally’s before and put that in with the foxy thing ( idk what to call it). Then keep repeating this and see what you get. This seems pretty simple but this was just what I think because Micheal Afton kinda must know that his brother is there because of the questions that are there and I can’t really think of any other reason why he would put tally marks.

  • Okay. So I've really been cracking down on trying to figure out crying child's name and I think I might be onto something. In Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator we get "introduced" to an unknown orange character. Many have come to the conclusion that this is Afton. However I think that there is a huge possibility that it isn't Afton, but Henry. My evidence for this claim corresponds with a previous video where you played off of this idea, so I won't go too much into that. The thing that I want to focus on is the identity of the crying child. If we are going off the idea that the orange guy is Henry then that would make Mike and the crying child his children. In the books Charlie had been told growing up that she once had a twin brother named Sammy who was kidnapped and killed by Afton when they were three. However, by the end of the series we learn that she had been lied to the whole time and she was the one who was kidnapped and killed. Because of this reveal many have written of Sammy as a character believing that he was never real to begin with and was made up only to trick Charlie. But what if he was real. What if Sammy is the crying child? Think about it. Charlie died when she was three and was later rebuilt by Henry. On her gravestone is says that she died in 1983, which is when FNAF 4 took place. Maybe that room is empty because she died earlier that year. Like you said in your video, he could've seen the moment when she was killed, which is why he fears the restaurant. The crying child is also shown to look quite similar to the way Charlie is described in the books and the way she is shown in the security puppet minigame. If this is all true, then we know that the crying child died after Charlie, and maybe when Henry rebuilt Charlie he didn't program her to have any memories of her brother because it would've opened that wound and hurt Henry more than it already did. Now I know that there are plenty of holes in this theory but I also think that it could be true.

  • I have a theory. It doesn't have much evidence but I believe that Crying Childs name is Gregory. If you look at the new fnaf security breach trailer and look closely at Gregory's shirt when he is looking at the hundreds of computer screens you can see two faint grey lines similar to the crying childs shirt. I don't have much other info but that's what I have. Another person had a theory that Gregory is a robot that has the same characteristics and name as crying child to lure the embodiment of Glitchtrap/William Afton out so they could finally catch him. Also very little evidence.

As she of you may know, damage to the frontal lobe results in memory loss, therefore C.C. Forgetting his own name and being unable to answer Cassidy's question.

  • I do want to point the meaning of the name Evan. It's a name related to the word Eoghan in Gaelic which means "youth" or "young warrior". I felt like since the name of Cassidy had a meaning I just thought maybe the name Evan would too. Idk just a little thing I wanted to point out.

  • maybe the night guard (vanessa) for the new game is the biological mother of the "crying child". because the crying child's sister has green eyes and ballora has pink/purple eyes, if the eye color remains when you posses an animatronics. also if William worked at Freddy's while he was normal, than he would influence his wife to do the same after she left him, (she left him because of the killings) possible theory? idk, we will just wait and see

  • I'm PARTLY sold on this theory. Whole there is enough evidence to say that The Crying Child's name is Evan. However, what if we had one more peice of evidence to conclude it? After all. We could say that the alphabet was put incorrectly into the Foxy Grid (not saying it is or isn't but its a possibility). One more piece of evidence could tie this up.

  • ok, if we are talking security breach theories, I've got one that is based SOLEY on the two trailers, so keep in mind, some of this is DEFINITELY not true, but just pieces mashed together: the first is that the animatronics do want to help Gregory, but don't know it yet, they are being manipulated, which could be signified by that incessant clicking throughout the trailer, Vanny is using them to catch Gregory. Vannessa knows something is off and is on the hunt. she is surprised to discover Gregory on a lift going down, hence that scene where we get a good look at her. Gregory is traversing the pizza plex looking for help, but is met by animatronics that are evil at each turn. he seeks out help in Moondrop (we will call him that for now) who seems to be the only one who is not granting instant death. he is the same animatronic as Sunny (temporary name) Sunny's face actually can change colors, allowing him to appear as the sun and moon. he is more friendly as the sun but odder as the moon, and more creepy. eventually, Gregory does meet Vannessa, who opts to help him. running from Vanny, they are confronted by still controlled animatronics. other trailers have helped us to theorize that the animatronics may be helping Gregory, which this trailer may still support. Gregory is confused and scared, so any animatronic running up to him could be attempting to catch him, or they may be relieved to see him in a sense, but are enthusiastic and scare him. while there are only 1 true animatronic for each of the band, they each have their own sort of room to chill in and relax, or meet fans, then go on stage later, Gregory recognizes this and checks regularly to make sure they are all still there, only to find Roxanne is missing, she had just left her room and noticed Gregory. I'm almost done. Montgomery (forgive the spelling) may be good at the point where he busts a fence open. the key factor that helps determine this is that he opens it rather than knocks it down. and as for the hand there at the end? two theories: 1) its nightmare's hand 2) it is Glitchtrap (stick with me here) If we follow Matpat's lore for fnaf, then Glitchtrap has never had an actual body or animatronic suit. Glitchtrap is so evil that his endo reflects it, so even before his suit has formed, his endo begins to lose it. Glitchtrap's corrupted endo was discovered, and quickly secured under the pizzaplex. now it is trying to escape, this may also be the same moment where Glitchtrap is speaking to Vanny in the begging. Thats my big theory. pleases tell me what you think

There isn’t any evidence for this, its just some crazy thought.
