    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

        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

      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. shrek the allmighty 123

      Isn’t it confirmed that his name is Joseph based off of the vhs tapes?

    3. lxvanii

      no its chris

    4. The Indie Zone

      Sorry it was Heywood lol🤭

    5. The Indie Zone

      Crying child is Micheal Afton it can only make sense as in Sister Location our character dosen’t feel right because “hint” “hint” flashback to Fazbear Frights with Eleanor and the creepy body removal surgery technically it’s just the same as being turned into an anamatronic which we know from fnaf 6 pizza simulator that the minds of the souls of the children go wild and they can’t remember much of anything as Henry says something about you probably don’t even remember your name...Also Foxybro from recent evidence connects him with phone guy because one he liked foxy two we can disprove the William Afton liking foxy because in the twisted series fourth closet he says he hates Henry’s old anamatronics (even though this is a seperate canon) but also that explains why the mask dosen’t work in fnaf 2 because in the cutscene as foxy he witnesses William Afton kill the children because he goes in and out...BUT THE BIG MIKE DROP IS.........Scott Cawthon dosen’t voice the William Afton recording at the beggening of Sister Location I think it was PJ Hollywood I could be wrong on that name...Well if you want to use this you can or just skip it I guess either one👌

    6. Mario Boy W

      At the ending of the security breach trailer I think the animatronic arm is a nightmare animatronic

    8. Existing Person

      if you add up all of the numbers which were used in finding Cassidy's name and flip them you would get 47 and then you could get the n for evan so i just finished his video where he was stuck at finding Golden Freddy's name there was a part that said self reflection so that is what i did to get 47

    9. Emma Lewis

      Because there is William Afton, purple guy or springtrap, Clara or ballora, Michael/ second purple guy and Elizabeth or Circus baby. That leaves chris/ the main character of fnaf 4... It makes sense to me anyway.

    10. Emma Lewis

      I thought crying child was chris?

    11. Mr Blueberry


    12. Mr Blueberry

      But this is like the 7th time he said he solved it sooooo maybe he didn't.

    13. Franklin Gignilliat

      sorry not sold un know why because how else would Evan as in the father be alive... unless... no... that doll is haunted OMG that fits that fits yess i am smurt

    14. Deliocache

      AHA! you mentioned your incorrect theory on hollow knight. That thing is literally held together with strings placed there by someone who doesn't understand whats going on. It has been disproven multiple times and kind of angered the hollow knight community. Bad theory.

    15. GoldieEditz

      jesus christ scott stop releasing stuff so fast i just finished fetch and im just now starting 1:35 am

    16. Matthew The mystery ninja

      I think Scott cawthon keeps making the games with more lore because he likes mat just explaining all the lore

    17. littleskiesYT


    18. littleskiesYT

      I think ik which is the name of the crying child I think its chris

    19. Sam Briggs

      First video of "Book Theory": IS SIMON actually a form of PENNYWISE?! | FnaF | Stephen King's IT

    22. TheDarkness 1983

      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.

      It was all just a dream.

    26. Jeffrey Nunez

      wait the midnight motorist minigame, at the part where there's human footprints and animatronic footprints that might be crying Childs foot prints with fredbear, idk.

    27. Peyton Mcphearson

      who excited for the movie?

      Matt pat did a great opening creepy voice

    31. Evan Kauffman

      7:41 *Checks frontal lobe aggressively*

    32. Jo Jo

      no is chris

    33. Miley Ellis

      I though the crying childes name was Chris? I'm very confused now

    34. Miss Lupus

      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.

    35. Evie Engstrom

      I think his name is Chris

    36. Emanoil Tushev

      Oh and the book might drop on my birthday on march 12

    37. Joel keys 500

      This actually proves the theory that the crying child isnt Michael

    38. Emanoil Tushev

      I think it's kevin it just get's to me

    39. Elyssa Gallego

      here we all are calling even chris

    40. ッVOLTIGE


    41. Logan Fletcher Hall


    42. C_Human

      i think that there are more secrets in different books Maybe, Perhaps the games?

    43. Paigey Boo

      I think the crying child’s name is Chris AFTON

    44. Havoc

      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

    45. Adrian Ramirez

      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.

    46. Patrik Kollár

      Theres a new fnaf security breach trailer where theres a new ending

    47. Panda Gay

      So I have idea maybe connecting the talimarks to the number of letters in the alphabet may give us the name idk but I just thought it might help, also have a wonderful day whoever reads this.

    48. Driqqo YT

      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

    49. Makayla Hart

      Evan Afton hmmmmmmmm Sounds good

    50. Literally a dog

      Did reddit just solve fnaf?? Me: Did reddit just solve fnaf again??

    51. Annette Johnson

      Hey I think the fan name is good (Chris Afton)

    52. Mike Oxlong

      Better get busy a new trailer exists

    53. Eva Stirbu

      Is this also from black bird?The name"Jake"on repeat, the cabinet and the mention of stains. 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.

      1. Eva Stirbu

        I had a few theorys myself.

    54. Hayden Catherine

    55. Joseph Spoto

      I'm sorry I'm used to saying Chris not Evan

    56. Joseph Spoto

      I believe Chris is not a part of golden Freddy and he actually still is alive

    57. dra dale

      7:36 jesus christ i just go scraed since my real name is evan jeeeeeesus

    58. Sporticus Stanz

      imagine the crying child was called freddy

    59. Decortis Ellis

      his name is chris athon

    60. 0.obsessiv.0

      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.

    61. •El & Ellen_productions •

      As long as there is a name I’m good

    62. - Suffering pain苦しみの痛み

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        Fun Fact:"Chris" is a fanon name, and that name has never been confirmed

    70. Tom4Mot

      The Crying Child Name is: Sammy

    71. EsteDoesGaming

      What Is happening

    72. Mr Think?

      Hey matpat I know this dose not matter but you can tell that there are different FNAF locations cuz in fnaf2 and fnaf1 you can see the difference between the heads with freddy whither freddy has more of a tall head and normal freddy has more of a squished head so that kinda proves there was a location before fnaf 2 Love your content hope you see my comment

    73. Pico

      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.

    74. Clutch545

      Wow! Game Theory is finally doing Game Theories again! What is this? 2014?

    75. Faine Jolie Abus

      Criying child is realy cris

    76. Cheryl Ng

      chris afton+evan afton is Chris Evans??!!! i knew it, marvel was related to FNAF

    77. Donlee Tv

      What if Scott is Mat

    78. Nieve Angeletti

      "I won't spoil [The Real Jake] for you, this time!" *Two minutes later* "... and then Jake goes on to possess Simon and his spirit joins Andrew in the Stitchwraith"

    79. Lex Official Music

      Because evens brother was wearing a foxy mask on the bite victims bday so I'd make sense that the character his brother killed him as would have the numbers for evens name

    80. ΠWizzo

      We did we call the crying child chris in the first place, :]?

      1. Lokeypokey

        @Mediocre Breakdown both

      2. Mediocre Breakdown

        No, I have no idea where that came from, it’s either a fandom name or us Gacha community randomly made it up :/

    81. Hy3b1d Drag0n

      wait remember 2014 fnaf 1 night 5 he didnt die that night he just got springlocked on the recording ?

    82. Gabriel Stein

      I just came back to this channel to see if they were still doing FNAF and holy hell the mad lads are still at it

    83. Emperor Snorlax

      When I saw the name Evan my first thought was Vanoss, this lead to imagining his Owl Character being an animatronic.

      1. Mediocre Breakdown

        That’s terrifying

    84. Totally Boyfriend from FNF also funkier

      I am convinced with the name Evan, pretty complex way to get that name and lots of theory stuff.

    85. Totally Boyfriend from FNF also funkier

      Other people who don't do theories: *C h r i s*

    86. Original Roleplays

      Thank God finally a name I hate when people say he's Chris Afton it's annoying

    87. 27hero27

      Make a new theory about the new gameplay trailer for fnaf pls

    88. Im Aight

      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.

    89. Spencer and cooper gaming


    90. alquacks

      Idk probably the book is a alternate or sum

    91. Auroura Kidd

      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.

    92. Cloudiiz

      Lmao why is this one episode freaking me out so much?????

    93. Krunchie GoOsE

      hecc yah I'm sold and I'mma use this to show other people the crying child's name

    94. Melissa E Calhoun

      But what about the other 3 tormenter's names does that have anything to do with this? Because i think its somehow linked again I'm not quite sure but its just a guess. (not speaking of Michael)

    95. _Koala0199 _

      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.

    96. Phan Ninh

      So cutee

    97. CuttyKitty37

      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.

    98. Madeline Shields

      I think the crying child is Gregory from the security breach trailer because you can see the grey striped on the back of his shrit 😶

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        30+ years have passed from bite 83 to fnaf 9, how can he be gregory?
