    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.

      4. Bettina Sherwood

      5. Bettina Sherwood

        @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

    2. Undo 001

      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.

    4. Shark Shrek

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

    5. Charlotte Wade

      Its crish

    6. Cadence Perkins

      Fazbear frights 7 came out I think

    7. 3.0L TFSI Supercharged DOHC V-6

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

    8. FNAF GAMER 1987

      Isn't golden Freddy still alive?

    9. Lextra

      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?

    10. Karleigh Chelf

      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:

    12. Laurent Morel-à-l'Huissier

      This is cool

    13. Stephens gaming clips


    14. Aza Adama

      Crying child name is Christopher/chris

    15. Dab Squad Leader

      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

    16. krisp

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

    17. Dante Von Crowlley

      *Can they solve Fate universe?*

    18. mr fastlane

      Look carefully at the sercurty breach trailer

    19. AlicetheNeko

      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.

    20. SpaceBro

      Little Nightmares 2 theory?

    21. Terrax Gaming

      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

    22. Mackenzie Woloschuk

      Well,time to mess with my headcanons again-

    23. Roon Lin

      The crying child is named Chris

    24. 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

    25. 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?

    26. Evie Anne

      Dear Evan Hansen, the darker version

    27. kadmiel ezekiel carillo

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy


    28. Lionel Aiden Salama

      1. Lionel Aiden Salama

        But hey that's just a theory a game theory

    29. Trey Gojon

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

    30. Ainah Chargualaf

      Please do a game theory on Little Nightmares 2!

    31. 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!

    32. The King 72

      Wait my name is Evan

    33. noob king

      2. Lionel Aiden Salama


      3. Lionel Aiden Salama

        Guys chris is not crying child

      4. Regular Hooman


    35. Omen OwO

      heey, wanna try valorant lore?

    36. 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!!

    37. 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

    38. Riley Afton


    39. Mike Zaldy

      If you think about it golden Freddy has three spirits

    40. Cassidy Hoefer

      There is a new trailer for security breach

    41. Puppymcpupsters

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

    42. Lyric Pratt

      Its chris

      1. Lionel Aiden Salama

        Micheal is foxy maskand purple guy in sl

      2. Lionel Aiden Salama

        You should read the book

      3. Lionel Aiden Salama

        Its evan

      4. Lionel Aiden Salama

        Not chris

      5. Lyric Pratt

        Idk y chris is crying

    43. 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)

    44. 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.

    45. Sebastian Delgado

      So now, who is Michael Afton?

    46. Shoto Milk


    47. A Stranger On Youtube

      I would also hit my head

    48. Colm Aiguier

      That's the most original intro ever

    49. Princess lucky Charm

      Wait Evan I keep seeing Chris as his name

    50. Shattered Matrix Incorporated

      Watching this as a Jake was weird.

    51. Princess lucky Charm

      The crying child is Chris

    52. 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? :)

    53. Randoo arch

      It's Kris afton

      1. Regular Hooman


    54. donkeykong 64 2

      2:06 need help child

    55. εἿιὃͲ ϏςἿᾇδ

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

    56. 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

    57. Miຮຮ Aຮperiτy

      im just super shocked this is crazy

    58. 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”

    59. Help Friends Services

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

    60. King Of Hearts

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

    61. Ainat Negron


    62. Beth_04

      I'm gonna need a new timeline at this point

    63. Kenneth Smith


    64. Kenneth Smith


    65. 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*

    66. 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

    67. 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.

    68. Ian Bick

      It’s Ethan because it’s better than Evan

    69. 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-

    70. Dembones skeli

      Hello everyone welcome to fan theory

    71. Waxtermellon__RobloxYt Official

      What I thought it wwas Chris?

    72. 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

    73. Foam Stag

      Well, that penny's intro was fun

      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."

    79. The firestar

      The crying child name is chris

    80. Akshit Singh

      Shitposting on another level XD

    81. Thomas Angell

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

    82. lizzy ._.2

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

    83. thatpvcguy

      The lore in a nutshell: *confusion*

    84. 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!

    85. 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?

    86. FASTPACKMAN2 7

      It’s reddit, it’s a hard maybe

    93. Samuel Ramos

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

    94. Art Block

      I always thought crying child was chris

    95. Darkness Cosplays

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

    96. Nelson Navarro


    97. LogicAlt

    98. The RPG

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

    99. Donlee Tv

    100. louisjaco olivier

      crying child is chris afton

      1. Lionel Aiden Salama

        Omg chris is not crying child

      2. Regular Hooman

      3. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        "Chris" is not canon
