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.

  • You need to do a breakdown of the fnaf: security breach! In the scenes where the glamrock animatronics are shown, there are "glitches" before a sentence is shown. If you stop at the right time one of the glitches show, you'll see that it's not a glitch. It's an animatronic that looks like Vanny

  • What if he(the crying child) isn’t a boy but a girl and her name is Eva.I don’t understand why people are attached to the n or that the crying child is a boy.Remember Scott has done this before, with Cassidy he asked for a voice that could be identified as either boy or girl.

  • In one of your theorys, you said that the Crying child Died, and William Afton wanted to "put him Back Together" If he IS Evan, then it wouldn't made any sence, Becuse if C.C was a robot of some sort, there wouldn't be any chence of him haveing a Child, even tho Evans Brother is named Michael, Maybe it would Be posible if C.C survived the Bite of 83, but i don't think that is True. This is Just my Thought, But i am not sure, Maybe just look at if from a Difrent point of view?

  • This is totally in a different game called FNAF help wanted now my theory Stars we see in the game the tape girl says the dude in the game could see glitchtrap so we know glitchtrap was in the game before she went in what if the real glitchtrap took over his body and now he was glitchtrap and when she went to test the game he saw a chance to escape so he did the same thing with her and then we see William go into the game years later but I think she did the same thing with William and that's why we see William killing kids i think she went insane and that's why we see William killing kids but she was in control the entire time and she ended up becoming springtrap please correct me if you think I'm wrong

  • Hey MatPat, could you do your next FNaF theory on something from the games like; could a FNaF animatronic as depicted in the game actually exist in the 1980's or 1990's, or would leaving an animatronic turned off over night actually damage it enough to be more cost effective to leaving them turned on over night, or even if a company in the 1980's could actually get away with an employee contract/handbook that is as sketchy as what we see in the games?

  • RWQFSFASXC (SHADOW BONNIE) IS GLITCHTRAP! Both names have ten letters, they both are purple glitches in the games, (fnaf 3 minigame). Also they just stare, and randomly (not so much in VR) appear. And in fnaf 3 RWQFSFASXC gives cake... WHAT DO WE SEE AT THE END OF VR! I may not have alot of evidence, but that never stopped Matpat before, so I leave it to you to decide if it is possible.

  • Jeez fnaf is a hard storyline to understand, I only get the gist couldn't explain timelines and dates. wow! Scott has a good imagination. It's nice how the lore is spread throughout all the games and books. I also like how Scott also appealed to the ones including myself, and others who like to think about a series even deeper. Scott's probably like let me see how much they can figure out and see how close they get to how I planned the story. FNAF reminds me of a long running show and I like it no matter how confusing some things are! Wow image if after the movie or movies fnaf turned into a show that would be cool!

  • Wow.......evan.....*sigh*....tbh I prefer the name Chris......because I feel more comfortable with the name.....but Evan?...*sigh*....idk this might just ruined fnaf for me.....i might go to back to sonic.....smh.....not to be a drama king but I for real prefer Chris because how long we have named him that it nows feels awkward saying that his name is actually Evan after this whole time.....but this is just my opinion so plz don't flame me :(..... And again this might be just another literal "theory" sad because of actually going to sleep sad because of this........smh -_-

    • Again note: I m not saying that I hate it.....but I just don't know about it yet......this might take tome to get used to........A LOT!!! OF TIME!!!!!

(This is something that my half asleep brain thought of) what if the man who hired Stanley was Micheal? I mean it probably wasn't but um I thought about it and um I mean hes probably not but still 3.

  • What if...Henry Emily has been pulling the strings ever since BEFORE William Afton killed the children and BEFORE anyone from HIS or William's familly died, maybe HE made "a deal with the devil" and made HIMSELF and William "immortal",without William knowing and "Mike" or Michael was the only child of William's who inherited the immortaliy, and maybe Henry IS the "owner" of Fazbear Entertainment ,plus, intended the "deaths" of Michael's children to make him feel "Agony" and kill the children to stuff them to the suits on purpose for their souls to make agony, AND, maybe...Henry promised to "put his children backtogether", HE didn't think that William would survive or maybe he isn't alive, maybe not; Btw,Henry probably is the one who created the Stichwraith and is in it, along with the two kids, it's just a theory, a game....oh wait. By "immortality" I mean that his soul can't leave his body. Also I forgot to mention that maybe William has split personalities and glitchtrap is the other personality and the true murderer,plus the deaths of his family drove William insane. PS:Sorry it sounds like a Rick and Morty rant, btw maybe Evan is Henry's second child,not William's, and is forgotten by Henry and did not inherit his immortality like his sibling , or he's just William's kid and became Shadow Freddy and Glitchtrap is Shadow Bonie triying to manifest himself as a shadow but fails unlike Evan who is a "complete soul" and can do it easier, plus, he is part of Golden Freddy, I think? Maybe Henry has a different name and changed it to Henry, maybe he is the game version of Oswald from the books, can't wait for the next video....I hope you make a video explaining Springtrap's many designs.

  • So, physic friend Fredbear’s eyes are cameras, right? And Toy Chica has those same eyes. Maybe she’s gathering visual evidence. So, what does that mean for Golden Freddy? Do Evan and Cassidy see through cameras in the animatronics? Maybe the reason Golden Freddy can’t move is because the souls are stuck in a computer, only seeing the outside world via cameras in the head?? But hey, that’s just an idea - a game idea! Thanks for reading.
