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.

  • Ok peeps, I got a theory. So you know the stitch wrath yeah? The stitchwrath could have been “the real jake” doll thing. The “blood” could have been the tomato sauce, and in 1:35 am, the doctor, (forgot his name) took out a doll that he described as “overkill,” with green knees and such, and later on in the teaser, we see that the doll/endo thing becomes the stitch wrath. Well, in “the real jake” story, Margie says herself that, and i quote, “it was turning into a hot mess with all the details she was adding, but...” And in the real jake, we know that the green knees were grass stains. Thats a theory of mine.

  • I have a thought. What if old man consequences is telling Cassidy to let go to not only let the purple guy be to burned for his sins, but to also let the crying child's soul rest? Because there is no evidence that the crying child is laid to rest. And if he's still possessing the golden freddy suit, that means he's also in hell with Cassidy and the purple guy. Again, this is just what I've been thinking.

  • Wait. youre comparing jakes father to the crying child but its more likely that ''evan'' is actually jake. which would most likely mean his name is. you know. Jake. because he is more similar than Evan. so my conclusion is that the crying child is named Jake

    HavocHavoc4 uur geleden
  • I have a doubt, Are the VHS tapes canon, because in one of them Afton himself calls the crying child joseph and blames Michael for killing him (aka foxy bro). We also get how Michael trapped and burned springtrap in fnaf 3.

  • Actually your theories wasn't true of five nights at Freddy's the crying child was the victim of five nights at Freddy's 4 secondly you said that Michael Laughlin wasn't five nights at Freddy's one and five nights at Freddy's 2 and a night guards was actually Jeremy Fletcher and Mike Sherman so it's actually fake

A lot of people think that crying child's name is Chris.I have heard that some people think that his name is Evan.Onestly with Chris there isn't much proof.Then agai"Evan" does have some sense but something is missing,something is overlooked.

  • I do love this theory so much but I am in agreement that somethings don’t fit, for example the drawing of nightmare Fredbear is drawn in red ink, the pen that Mike draws in. If this theory is true then is there something else we don’t know about Mike? Is there something we haven’t found that connects Mike to the nightmares of the crying child? I don’t believe that Mike and the crying child are the same person, the conclusion we’ve ended at seems to be the best one...... hold on... Brainwave, you remember Charlie from the books right? Is there a possibility that Mike and whoever the crying child is are similar to Charlie’s four models? They seemed to have been living at the same time but maybe their father lost the older brother after the events of Fnaf 4 too. There’s some holes in the thought that could be filled but it wouldn’t have enough evidence to support it, unless I’m missing something that is. Just some things to think about I guess.

  • 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.

  • I feel it might be possible that C.C. Simply doesn't remember his name. They are saying that when C.C. was bitten his frontal lobe was damaged. 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
