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.

  • guess im the crying child guys

    • 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

    • who u?

  • His name is Chris Afton

  • The crying child name is Christopher or for short Chris Afton. Also you can call him Evan too

  • Isn't it Christopher Afton? ( chris)

  • Also William's wife is Clara Afton who when drives off a cliff and dies possessed Ballora

  • No hate but isn't the name of the crying child Chris Afton. I figured it out in fnaf 4 i looked at the names of the Aftons and it said Chris Afton. Though this has not been solved i am pretty sure its Chris Afton because the only afton left on the list was chris, there is no chris in the family but there is a crying child Afton.

  • Nostalgia's kickin in my dude. Beautiful

  • Start at 3:33

  • The new fnaf security breach trailer is out and it has a lot of new things can you do a theory on it.

  • Crying child's name is Christian Afton

  • I got to redo ur timeline or at least talk about it

  • Simon is the most the most creepy thing I’ve seen in all these videos

  • Let’s face it, nobody can ACTUALLY solve fnaf, they can only get close... *kind of close, anyway*

  • Maybe the crying child is a girl and her name is Eva???

  • The careless tile intralysosomally cause because science biologically applaud amidst a meek millennium. incredible, tidy crook

  • I thought the crying child was mickael afton?

  • Here fun fact if I I found about nigthmare fredbear laugh when you speed it to x2,5 it sound like a male teenager laugh

  • amogus

  • I wait for months for new videos😭

  • He has so many names: Crying Child,C.C,Chris,Norman and finally Evan-

  • Wow had to steal my name 😒

  • Bowling for soup - 1985 fnaf remix ft Mat pat .... anyone?

  • Wait it says Michael earns a lot of money he could be the owner of the new security breach location

  • Do we know what game Michael has the Logbook? Maybe then we can try and corrolate something for the tallies.

  • 0:07 - "And then the black kid behind me said 'AYO THIS N!GGA EATING BEANS!!'"

  • OK SO I DON'T HAVE A REDDIT SO I'M GONNA PUT THIS HERE BUT IN THE NEW SECURITY BREACH TRAILER WE MEET GREGORY RIGHT? WE'VE NEVER MET A GREGORY BEFORE THIS CORRECT? ok so here me out, what if Gregory is the kid that got caught in the time traveling ball pit? I'm not quite sure what this would mean for the lore or how it could throw off the timeline BUT it's a thought, I don't think we've seen a ball pit outside of the books yet and the Pizzaplex IS based off of the 80's glamrock aesthetic, if I'm not mistaken, the ball pit takes the child back to 1985. I don't quite remember if the book named the kid who got put Back in Time (TM) BUT even if they DID, not every story in the books are precisely what happens in the games, by which I mean they act more as parallel stories than a perfect record of what happened in the canon Fazbear universe. That being said, I'm writing this at like 10 pm and I woke up like 4 minutes ago but I hope what I'm suggesting makes sense and like I said, I'm not quite sure what this would do to the lore or the storyline but it's food for thought. Thanks for coming to my FREDTalk. edit: I wanted to post this because of all the like 7 videos I've watched about the new Security Breach trailer, no one has mentioned this and I figured it was somewhat important.

  • Eyyyy it’s YIAY

  • Gacha users be like: HiS NaME Is cHriS

  • I’m so glad that fnaf is still popular. Puts a good smile on my face☺️

  • maybe Evan couldn't remember the name so Michael helped him out.

  • I know this is probably not gonna get any sort of attention at all but i have a “small theory” what if Vanny aka Vanessa was raised as a child by William Afton? Because in the 2nd trailer for FNAF Security Breach he says “ When I first found you, you were nothing. You were small. Pathetic. But now, you are more. Are you ready?” And now shes helping him trying to get back in the real world‬. Because as we know William Afton associates with the color purple and Vanessa has her nails painted purple and not only that but the teaser where is shows Vanessa with the words “Protect” on it is also purple so she Has to have some connection with William Afton maybe she sees him like a father figure since he DID that he found her. (But this is just what I “think” I could be completely wrong about everything who knows 🤷🏽‍♀️)

  • The fnaf book "The cliffs" was released yesterday

  • In the new trailer a child’s name is gregory

  • I been watchig alot of fan made fanf video and micheal in some cases is called Larence, but most people call him Micheal and some people call the crying child chris or evan

  • 2:02 literally me being confused to FNaF Lore and Timeline

  • Wait wait I just thought of something remember when Scott was doing casting calls and with vengeful spirit it had to be a girl OR a boy was this Scott hitting this because of what matt was say the Golden freddy animatronic may have 2 souls one girl and one boy

  • its chris

  • Everyone: we don’t know crying child’s name The gacha community: C h r i s

    • @Inkypinz Lol Chris is a different character unrelated to the bite victim

    • it has chris in the cliffs

  • Simon is a doll what looks like a doll in fnaf puppet he mite have a connection

  • The crying child name is GREGORY

  • Coincidence I think not

  • Hey my name is Evan

  • Hey I'ma give you something in the new trailer you can see when gregory was looking in cam you can see that they have the same stripes so which that means that crying child is GREGORY

  • Why does mat sound like pennywise in the beginning

  • Lol people have been going about fnaf it’s been what more than 6 years?😂

  • I have a little theory of my own: People always push Fnaf World away but it has some hidden lore Like Glitch trap was presented to us before Hell Wanted V.R “Malhare” so that brings a lot of questions Also I don’t know if you knew and it’s not really Fnaf World but in Custom night you can do a glitch that brings you into Old man consequences lake and if you fiddle with the sounds in the background you can hear William screaming for mike and Henry while he burns..in hell.

  • Crying child's name is Chris afton

  • dude what if sid kick fred baer was chasiddy

  • hay something odd happened to me in the new fnaf AR special delivery when your hunting for remnet its norml tho my old famliy members are always in pain and thare was way more remnet then my dads house and remnet is made by human pain and agony so mabye fnaf is becomeing real (this has happened meny times before i told you guys this)

  • I hate the Cassidy photo. Every time. I wish he used a different one

  • Matt 20 years later:wow we still haven't solved fnaf lore yet???????

  • The answer is probably right in front of us and we don’t know

  • Hi, guys. Can anybody tell me who is ennard (molten freddy, funtime anim) i mean without purpleguy wife thing. Why he went on heaven? It's mean he was good before dead? How many souls in ennard and who are these people?

  • It’s in putting off this video for so long and I still haven’t this at the time I’m writing this comment, and honestly I think it’s because I just don’t fnaf want to be over. Whenever he sees the final theory or we solved fnaf it makes me concerned that this dream, this amazing wonderful thing is actually over and eventually it will be. It just makes me think and makes me sad To think that it’s going to be over one day, and haw it came from a small, one room game to a humongous Fandom and community with the new game filled with lor and open room it. I remember seeing the security breach trailer and I started crying to see how beautiful the animatronics in the graphics were. And the music just hit so hard and my nostalgia flu flew through the roof hearing Balorus remix and the first jingle that Freddy song at the end and it just really makes you think. It’s sad and amazing to see how far we came and because one day this will all be over, this dream willing this beautiful masterpiece will stop, so we have to do enjoy it while it last!!!!!

  • Sub to mrbeast

  • Joking theory but if anyone wants to do research I request you add "bleep bloop" in the title of wherever you post it: Scott doesn't want us to get stopped, he likes watching us scratch our heads and furrow our brows. He hired some people to add hint or theories that don't quite make sense but still push is forward whenever he thinks we're getting stuck.

  • 4chan would've done all of this in a year but Reddit did it in a month or lower.

  • WhooAAAAAT

  • It is NOT chris I repeat NOT CHRIS

  • That intro was amazing

  • As someone who has never played a FNaF game, but saw this by chance and happen to have worked with children and understand use of language, I have a theory that might help you guys. I haven’t seen this brought up yet, so I figure I’d give an outside perspective. What we know: Cassidy is one of the spirits with Crying Child; they are disoriented in a single body not of their own; they clearly can interact with other, but in limited ways - both with each other and the physical world (the book series supports this with the Stitchwraith story-line being clearly related). As the logbook has been analyzed in this and a few videos I’ve seen, I’ve noticed everyone assumes that Cassidy is asking questions and talking first, and Crying Child is responding last to a question Cassidy asks. I don’t think that’s true; I think it is a true back and forth conversation as they figure out what is going on inside of their shared body. Meaning: in the book Crying Child is stating he is scared (“I am scared:”), and Cassidy asks a question about his parents (“Do you miss them?”) in response to that statement, I.e. Cassidy is asking a question in response to what Crying Child is emotionally experiencing. What we see in the book is only some of their internal dialogue as they struggle with communication. As someone who has worked with children, yes, they can respond in both directions (either Cassidy asks the question first or last) and it makes sense: young children are direct, older children ask more indirect questions to direct events as their command of language improves. Cassidy clearly has a better command of language, and we know she died in ‘85 (Crying Child was very young at his death via the games showing that, plus he died earlier in the year of ‘83, i.e. she is probably older and probably more assertive than Crying Child with respect to their stunted ages and psychological developments at the time of death. Use that to your advantage. We also know time is also fluid in this series, but also that the logbook is a print book and this existed in itself entirely at the moment the spirits would have started to communicate with each other. Don’t assume the earlier a response is in the book, it indicates who asked or said something first. These are children with a limited command of language anyway by their age alone, ignoring the death part. If you know the psychology you can understand the dialogue. Golden Freddy is very “two-faced” and has a separate game mechanic to where he is passive most of the time.... until he isn’t (showing the dichotomy between the two souls and what they control at any given time). Remember: Cawthon is a father, so he would be used to - and be able to logically reason through experience and repetition talking to his children - that this is how children talk and respond, in both directions of a conversation. Especially if one is older than the other and has a slightly better command of language and sass. The only idea I’m willing to play with is this: 1) Mike writes in the book and the spirits talk as he is writing, 2) The spirits talk in the book after Mike writes, and 3) The spirits use the book to communicate years before Mike uses the book. All of that is possible and could have influenced Mike’s responses, notes, and scratch marks in subtle - but logical - ways. Knowing that, I think the best way to look at the earlier conversation goes like this: * I am scared -> Do you miss them? * I can’t hear Do you still hear him? (this makes sense by my earlier assertions, but most likely Cassidy is asking the question as a response to Crying Child’s earlier statement) * It was for me The party was for you (it can go either way logically, either Cassidy asserts a statement first, or says it last to clarify what Crying Child is saying) * I can’t see What do you see? (This can logically go both ways upon thinking deeper. Cassidy could be asking what Crying Child is seeing in place of not being able to see outside of the robotic shell). As I write this out, I actually think it is more likely Cassidy is responding to text changes that Crying Child arranged in the logbook before she died and merged with him (Crying Child died before the MCI, so this makes sense that he said things before Cassidy, even if Cassidy may be older). I think Cassidy is responding to let Crying Child know she now exists with him, since I think he make those statements after his death and before Cassidy died and merged and wrote his fears and worried in the logbook. It makes sense when you consider Cassidy never gets a direct answer as to what Crying Child’s name is. That’s out of style for what Crying Child is actually doing in the logbook earlier in it’s print text. That’s just my outside thoughts on this. Let me know what you think.

  • since the crying child maybe the name of crying child starts with a c

  • The crying child's name is Chris Afton

  • what if the crying child is gregory their is no proof that i know of but it is just a what if i sound stupid lmao

  • I believe that Henry is still alive, and that the location in Sister Location is Henry's laboratory. I always believe orange guy in the midnight motorist mini game is Henry going to the scene of the crime which is Jrs then to his home. Finally I believe it's Henry, not Cassidy, who is the one writing in faded text in the survival logbook to his son, the Crying Child. Which would make Michael the Crying Childs brother. I believe this because Henry was killed by a robot he created if I'm not mistaken, during his time of grief and agony. Agony which in one of the books is stated to be the essence which brings the animatronics to life, it's in one of the epilogues in the the fazbear frights series. I feel strongly that the Sister location is Henry's laboratory because in one of the three orginal books Charlotte crawled up from the underground to discover she was in her dad's house, her house, Henry's house. I think the Orange guy in midnight motorist is Henry and that Jrs is the crime scene because He's driving probably because he caught wind that something happened at that location and was racing to find out but was turned away because he worked for the company and employees were under investigation so he went home probably figuring he'll learn more in the morning but realized his youngest son escaped to his favorite place, Jrs, which by the way I believe is a fazbear location. And this is why in fnaf 4 you see the lonely freddy plush aka golden freddy plush or psychic friend fred bear, which is discovered to be a surveillance camera with a 2 way mic in it. Which makes me think it was Henry speaking to him in that game similar to what's done in one of the stories in the fazbear fright book, I believe number 6. And the reason Henry would ask these questions is because his son got his head bit and I'm there was some memory loss. Mind you at this time, Henry is presumably dead and is probably using some voice altering technology to sound more younger or friendly. One more thing, is that the lonely freddy says "I'll put you back together again" something he did with Charlotte in the books. I feel Henry is in the logbook is because the same questions are asked in the logbook in faded text and the Crying Child answers back maybe realizing it's the same things asked to him before he passed in fnaf 4. Now I know it's a stretch but to me it's clear that in the logbook Mike is just filling it out. Writing his experience working at the pizzeria. And another thing that makes me think that Mike or Michael is Henry's son and not an Afton is because in the game he just says Michael and in the logbook he only writes Mike, no last name given just like Henry and Charlotte. At this point, I'm just speculating and throwing my thoughts on the wall, but if this is the case, it just makes much more sense than having William Afton, a murderer of children, trying to redeem himself to later wanting to be immortal, I don't think that makes much sense but Henry trying to rebuild his family, broken by his friend/co worker William and trying to stop William from obtaining his goal of immortality and spree of murders for his family and other kids who suffered at his hand and for Mike who wants to make amends for the prank gone bad, just makes much more sense. I'm sure there's holes in this "theory" but I believe this, and I think, maybe it could be the view needed to figure out key clues like the Crying Childs name. Idk just saiyan.

  • I think I remember something that was mentioned, that william had accomplices for his murders So does that mean there is a purple cadre of child killers out there?

  • Just a question for the logbook... why was there an entire section on how to operate springlocks? I mean the logbook seems to take place around fnaf 1 or 2, and in those games there isn't a section about putting on a suit? Maybe that section was for Afton. just a theory. A GAME THEORY!!!

  • I got a game theory I think I know who the crying child it could be Andrew and I think that he could be possessing the animatronic that in the new fnaf game Gator.

  • I'm watching this becuase I want to Understand all the "undertale reacts to fnaf memes" because I'm thoroughly confused Edit: I've watched the whole thing. This intrigues me

  • I thought it was chris

  • Matpat was in FNAF the musical

  • PETSCOP PETSCOP PETSCOP!!!!! We need new videos!!! Keep it going!!!!! I just binged the playlist but I need mooooorrreee!!!

  • What is phone guys name we know every other main persons name

  • Is Chris-

  • You know we do not know the names of the kids in phantom Freddy and Bonnie

  • Ive looked thru a few things and i thought why not find someone in a show or film called evan that takes really bad head damage and there are a few even one referring to young child/teen taking some bad head damage i will edit if i find anything else out. Only just started but this could help

  • Can I just say Gregory could be a recreation of crying child (or the same person) what I mean by this is Gregory could be the crying child PUT BACK TOGETHER

  • In the new trailer for security breach at the end I just realized that there are arcades if you brightened it enough and in fnaf 3 glitchtrap is in a game that's probably in a arcade and in the trailer glitchtrap is coming out of a arcade that you can see in the trailer.

  • Mabey Evan is a acronym

  • 1:41 the crying childs name is chris afton

  • Matpat I looked up who possessed Cassidy it said it was the marionette in one of the books too I read a bit of a book I think it was silver eyes It said ten years ago they’d been friends. And then it happened at least for Charlie. She hadn’t seen any of them since she was Seven years old . They all had written all the time as kids, especially Marla who wrote like she talked. (I keep wondering who Marla is)?

  • In one of the FNAF FRIGHT books, not sure which, it claims there are robotic plants that watch the children. Psychic freind fred bear turns into flowers to watch the crying child. Booookm!

  • To whomever is scrolling: sending you good vibes for the rest of the day or night. Thank you for reading!

  • Day 3 of asking matpat to do a theory on rusty lake games like cube escape and white door come on guys like this enough so he can see it

  • If the Crying Child's name were to be Evan, he wouldn't be alive to have Jake as his son because we all know that the Crying Child died and resides in the Golden Freddy suit

    • The books are separate stories. They just draw parallels to the game either to support an idea is right or to highlight a connection that's been overlooked. In this case, it's not that Evan is the crying child and Jake's father. It's that they are two separate people named Evan who both happen to have a brother named Michael.

  • By the time matpat dies he’ll will have solved FNAF thousands of times

  • Poor jake

  • I guess evan is the crying child

  • so...Evan Afton?...Nice

  • Get matt smacked

  • This is confusing, I think I will just stick with the name ‘chris’ for name till someone actually finds the right name

  • You should really write a real lore book!!! (You would probably make a lot of money 🤑🤑)

  • j

  • I have a theory that I had for awhile Funtime Freddy I keep thinking that there’s two children one in Funtime Freddy and one in bon bon and I keep thinking that they were siblings

  • This might be over the top but what if Evan was the crying child's brother. The crying child's brother does wear a fox mask in FANF 4 and the name was found on the foxy page.

  • does it seem convenient that purple guy killed the 6 children with a GOLDEN BUNNY costume and Vanny has a BUNNY mask and has a KNIFE like purple guys weapon ANND purple guy is William who has a wife could Vanny be his wife because William is GLITCHTRAP and William's trying to get her back after sister location failed and also making Vanny kill because he's trying to keep his brand alive?????

  • Wait what about the name Gregory from the game trailers I might be wrong I'm not sure

  • Crying child his name is chris

  • My life is a lie thinking for 5 years that the crying child’s name is Chris-

  • Can u post more lore on Minecraft
