    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.

    6. Xinyu Tiew

      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

    7. Zero Null

      So dumb theory the struggling Golden Freddy we see at the end of UCN is the Crying Child and Cassidy fighting over control for the golden Freddy?

    8. Evie Anne

      Dear Evan Hansen, the darker version

    9. kadmiel ezekiel carillo

      The crying child name is Chris

    10. Lionel Aiden Salama

      Everyone says Chris afton not his name it's Evan I saw in the book logbook and its paper with blood and in website Michael is foxy mask in fnaf 4 in the book I read and Funtime foxy in trailer we saw puppet in sister location u guys should know better

      1. Lionel Aiden Salama

        But hey that's just a theory a game theory

    11. Trey Gojon

      395248 from fnaf 3 what if we need to use that in the foxy grid

    12. Ainah Chargualaf

      Please do a game theory on Little Nightmares 2!

    13. Jaime D

      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!

    14. The King 72

      Wait my name is Evan

    15. noob king

      the crying child nae is criss

      1. Regular Hooman

        Who is criss?

      2. Lionel Aiden Salama

        No its evan

    16. Wolfwalker w.

      I thought crying child was Chris Afton ;-;

      1. Regular Hooman


    17. Omen OwO

      heey, wanna try valorant lore?

    18. Benny Vazquez

      I don’t think this is true but I think jake is the crying child, and look at the cover of book 7, it’s shows a broken bear plush, possibly the crying child’s plush, but that’s a theory, a game theory and I’m a big fan!!

    19. Zacvh

      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

    20. Riley Afton


    21. Mike Zaldy

      If you think about it golden Freddy has three spirits

    22. Cassidy Hoefer

      There is a new trailer for security breach

    23. Puppymcpupsters

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

    24. Lyric Pratt

      Its chris

      1. Regular Hooman

        Who chris?

      2. Lionel Aiden Salama

        Not chris

    25. Lexie Rose

      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)

    26. Daniel Rauch

      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.

    27. Sebastian Delgado

      So now, who is Michael Afton?

    28. Shoto Milk


    29. A Stranger On Youtube

      I would also hit my head

    30. Colm Aiguier

      That's the most original intro ever

    31. Princess lucky Charm

      Wait Evan I keep seeing Chris as his name

    32. Shattered Matrix Incorporated

      Watching this as a Jake was weird.

    33. Princess lucky Charm

      The crying child is Chris

    34. Bob The Builder On Steroids

      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

      1. Bob The Builder On Steroids

        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? :)

    35. Randoo arch

      It's Kris afton

      1. Regular Hooman


    36. donkeykong 64 2

      2:06 need help child

    37. εἿιὃͲ ϏςἿᾇδ

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

    38. Agent Walrus

      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

    39. Miຮຮ Aຮperiτy

      im just super shocked this is crazy

    40. Vegatable Kingdom

      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”

    41. Help Friends Services

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

    42. King Of Hearts

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

    43. Ainat Negron


    44. Beth_04

      I'm gonna need a new timeline at this point

    45. Kenneth Smith


    46. Kenneth Smith


    47. Scarlet pinxity

      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*

    48. Dembones skeli

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

    49. Sleepy Mocha

      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.

    50. Ian Bick

      It’s Ethan because it’s better than Evan

    51. Loser_Rosey

      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-

    52. Dembones skeli

      Hello everyone welcome to fan theory

    53. Waxtermellon__RobloxYt Official

      What I thought it wwas Chris?

    54. cadergator10

      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

    55. Foam Stag

      Well, that penny's intro was fun

    56. Br1ttanyxo


    57. Danial Khan

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

    58. Matthew Miller

      Gotta love Emotionally Repressed Child

    59. FazeUp 22

      The puppets name is not Charlie its Charlotte Emily

    60. summr thundr

      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."

    61. The firestar

      The crying child name is chris

    62. Akshit Singh

      Shitposting on another level XD

    63. Thomas Angell

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

    64. lizzy ._.2

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

    65. thatpvcguy

      The lore in a nutshell: *confusion*

    66. Jenisah Tejeda

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

    67. Xer Rex

      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.

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        wait, are you saying that there are 2 springtraps?

    68. FASTPACKMAN2 7

      haha my name is Evan

    73. Detwand

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

    74. Awesome Bread

      It’s reddit, it’s a hard maybe

    75. Samuel Ramos

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

    76. Art Block

      I always thought crying child was chris

    77. Darkness Cosplays

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

    78. Nelson Navarro


    79. LogicAlt

      yes im sold with crying child being evan

    80. The RPG

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

    81. Donlee Tv

      I just missed alot of stuff

    82. louisjaco olivier

      crying child is chris afton

      1. Regular Hooman

        WHO IS CHRIS????

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        "Chris" is not canon

    83. nicoaparicio1

      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.

    84. Homer Hanson

      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

    85. Takara Fujiforest


    86. Tidiane Sanders

      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.

    87. Devils gaurd

      Please move on.

    90. Antonio Friends

      I did not think that fnaf was still a thing

    91. jimmyrobo61

      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?

    92. Jhancel Lawrence Marasigan

      Cassidy looked scary

    93. Levi Gardner

      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.

    94. Queen Brie Gaming

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

    95. Queen Brie Gaming

      I thought his name was Chris/Christopher

      1. Queen Brie Gaming

        I mean I’m probably wrong

    96. Captain Cookie

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

    97. Dr.Slime-Roblox


    98. IceWyvernBoy WyvernLover

      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.

    99. Jasmin Yasinsen

      The crying child is chris

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        "Chris" is not canon

    100. Mallory Wiley

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

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        @Regular Hooman Yes that's right

      2. Regular Hooman

        @Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy really? A community all about using the correct and canon names for all the characters and for one they just use Chris a name not even mentioned at all in all of the games?

      3. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        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.
