Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ► bit.ly/3qwx0AW
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.

Ummæli

  • 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

  • it's c.c

  • Evan could be the criyng child

  • The binding of the crying child

  • a new fnaf Comercial came out like 6 days ago and it said the name Gregory Idk if this is important but the security officer is a female and not one of the aftons

  • cc your name is evan :)

  • I have no words

  • WOW

  • Dude idk why but everytime i watch a fnaf theory i get goosebumps.

  • We need a full recap of the lore, Mat. most of us can't keep up with all the changes and updates to the lore.

  • So, black bird is a same story, different version sort of thing? Also, my Theory is that golden Freddy isn't the only shared animatronic I think there is 2 soals in circus baby, as one minute she wants to help, next she kidnapped you, perhaps the green eyed girl from fnaf 4

  • 13:32 and why is this surprising I’m just saying like there is billions of people and who knows how many people are named Evan but..

  • with the gacha i have been watching,his name is chris

  • For a second I thought his name was Eva lol

  • Evan afton.. has a nice ring to it

  • One theory is that the crying child is name Chirs lol might not true

  • Everyone: WHO IS DA CRYING CHILD? Gacha community: Chris, duh.

  • do security breech plz

  • New throri. Loock at the trailer and you will see spring trap animatronic parts and dere are burnd. vany tries to pice wiliam afton back thogeter

  • It's a stretch and you have to close your eyes hear and there but it dose make sense and would make the story of the black bird revelent so I am sold

  • Dude I start the video and he’s screaming my name over and over super creepy🤣

  • the 7th fazbear frights book is out now :)

  • MatPat can u do a recap video😭

  • C.C Or the crrying child name is sopposed to be Chris

    • You have a Gacha life pfp of course you would say that

    • no, this is not a canon name. Please do not spread false information

  • By the way, I want the next channel to be book theory

  • We need this people in the police department for solving crimes

    • @Charming nowhere to hide what answer? I was just saying that this kind Is solving and logic would ve very useful in real crimes.... Maybe

    • fnaf is based on a true story, figure out the true story then you'll have your answer

  • do you know that golden freddy is a ghost ?

    • I’m not certain about Evan, but I am certain that this title crossed the clickbait line. Come on, Matpat.

  • What if gregory is the crying child I mean the plushie said "I will put you back together" and what if gregory is a robot that is luring afton to his death

    • Gregory is completely unrelated to the bite victim Bite victim died over 40 or 50 years ago

  • It’s Gregory that’s his name

  • I thought "why when you use in unc the death coin on golden freddy you get jumpscared by fredbear" after Mat's theory that he found that golden freddy has two souls I thought "If the crying child got killed by fredbear that means you get jumpscared by the crying child not by Cassidy"

  • At this point I think the books are just telling the same story , but in a alternate universe , but most of the events play out the same

  • Theory of mine: GlitchTrap is posessing Vanny and her eyes flow red Vanny is controlling the others but not Glamrock freddy since his eyes aren't red so he is helping Gregory (Who we play as) To escape or survive Vansessa who is probably Vanny can't control herself so she switches from time to time to confuse Gregory so The other animatronics follow Vanny or Glitchtraps command thats why MontGomory Gator said that because Glitchtrap made him say that when they catch gregory they will bring it to Vanny so Vanny can give it to glitch trap to kill and most obviously stuff into another suit. (If you steal this make sure to Credit me for making it!) UHM THIS IS A SECURITY BREACH THOERY MADE BY ME

  • *O P E N T H E C A B I N E T , J A K E*

  • no hes neme is chris ok

    • Chris is a stupid fanmade name

  • I’m confused because everyone keeps saying “the crying child’s name is Christopher afton” but it doesn’t make sense

    • Chris is nothing more than a stupid fanmade names

  • CC name is Chris dum dum

  • Imagine if ballon boy was the awnser to fnaf

  • i searched it and it said chris afton

  • I made a little mini theory of my own if you want ultimate custom night and jump scared by or if you even can jump scare you the voices of him will be Henry Mike help have you considered that that was William Afton in hell crying for help think about it we know that Mike is William Afton son and Henry is his work partner so it makes sense if William Afton is old man consequences stuck in HE double hockey sticks or in some kind of a bit video game or some torture by the one you should not have killed I have full evidence it’s a literally everywhere to the screams of help you wouldn’t said it yourself William Afton is like Separated so technically that could be a piece of William Afton stuck in some kind of video game or torture or whatever for naff can give us so that’s my little mini theory

  • Dude how long have you been at this for?

  • but that would mean that C.C survived the bite if he had a son-

  • I’m not certain about Evan, but I am certain that this title crossed the clickbait line. Come on, Matpat.

  • fnaf is based on a true story, figure out the true story then you'll have your answer

  • 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. 😄

  • 2:07 Relatable

  • 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.

    • @Vusumuzi Ncube Thats only fanmade Nowhere in fnaf the name terrence exists

    • OK so I did a quick surch which is Micheal is Terrance. Full name MICHAEL TERRANCE AFTON. but I don't think it's official

    • Ew gacha life Get out

    • What official fnaf media does terrance appear in?

  • Matpat you made a mistake for the ultimate custom night theory and it was including what nightmarionne said even tho she isn't canon

  • Its crish

  • Fazbear frights 7 came out I think

  • dude i think you can just assume the answer to anything involving solving fnaf is 'no they didnt' now

  • Isn't golden Freddy still alive?

  • have you ever considered that golden freddy is fredbear, 'cause if you use the death coin on him in ultimate custom night you get jumpscared by fredbear?

  • 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.

  • when the gacha says C.C OR EVAN'S name is CHRIS:

  • This is cool

  • LITTLE NIGHTMARES

  • Crying child name is Christopher/chris

  • Uh Matt, I’m not sure if you knew but the name of Jake’s father in Blackbird is Evan. I don’t think that’s a coincidence

  • Can mat like make a 78 hour long fnaf theory recap vid

  • *Can they solve Fate universe?*

  • Look carefully at the sercurty breach trailer

  • 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.

  • Little Nightmares 2 theory?

  • It's been so long since I quit the fnaf fandom, that I forgot every theory video that I've ever watched so far, I dunno who this Charlie, Elizabeth people are. Oh well, guess I gotta start all over again

  • Well,time to mess with my headcanons again-

  • The crying child is named Chris

  • 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

  • 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?

  • Dear Evan Hansen, the darker version

  • The crying child name is Chris

  • 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

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

  • Please do a game theory on Little Nightmares 2!

  • 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!

  • Wait my name is Evan

  • the crying child nae is criss

  • I thought crying child was Chris Afton ;-;

  • heey, wanna try valorant lore?

  • 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!!

  • 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

  • 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

    • WHO IS KRIS? EVERYONE KEEPS TALKING ABOUT THEM BUT I DONT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THEM

  • 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
