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.

I think the books are all connected to the crying child because each book has atleast one story that has a fnaf 4 animatronic in it example: the mini springtrap that only moves in the dark and the mini Fred bears

In the FNAF books(The Silver Eyes, The Twisted Ones, and The Fourth Closet.), Charlie has scattered memories of a twin named Sammy. In the books, he is the first one to be snatched by William Afton. I'm just wondering if he possibly fits into the law more? It feels strange that his name just comes up a few times in the books, and then he's just seen as a rumour, even though he is mentioned in the Freddy Files, being named as a mere possibility. I don't think he's The Crying Child, since The Crying Child was bitten by Golden Freddy, not snatched, but that doesn't change the gact that he seemingly doesn't exist in the rest of the games or Fazbear Frightes. I just think it's a little strange, but I wanted to chuck this comment out there for discussion. He may have no significance whatsoever, but Henry having Charlie, and The Crying Child, and Foxy bro(Michael) as children seems strange, because there were only two bedrooms in Henry's house.(I may be wrong about that, I am unsure.) So if Charlie had a twin brother(Sammy) when she was younger, that would mean Henry has a total of three/four children, and only _two_ bedrooms, which means he may have moved after Sammy was snatched, like in the books, meaning at the time he only had Charlie and Crying Child, i.e, two rooms.(I don't know if Michael lived with him, I'm still trying to understand Michael's schtick.) I'm just thinking out loud to be completely honest, anyone have any ideas? Am I just picking at an unimportant detail? Could be anything with FNAF, so I thought I'd comment something. Apologies for the paragraph, have a lovely day!

Again,if micheal is foxy bro then he would of had to been crying child since crying child was the only one to ever get into a deadly accident and afton said he would put him back together and then micheal says in a cutscene "Father its me micheal i put her back together..just like you asked me to" and only the crying child would know that phrase since William said that to him

I get what you mean by being concerned about how Evan was gotten, however the fact that the method did get a properly spelled name makes me more convinced. It reminds me of the pazzazz math work pages. If you were doing it wrong or cutting corners you would get something that doesn't make sense. Another thing to consider is that maybe Scott did change up the methodology for some of the puzzles in the work book. Considering that those pages have remained unused for such a long time tells me that we either haven't figured out the pattern for them or that he has yet to release content that will help us with it. Trying this new pattern would support option number one here. In regards to the use of Evan in the story, this also feels like a move Scott has done before and would probably still continue to use.

Wait so, is Terrence afton real or? Because hold up just a moment! I’m most likely wrong but think about it, The crying child has been called Chris by many people. So? If Terrence is real what if his real name isn’t Terrence! That’s another way Evan could be added to fnaf?

all right i know that a lot of people probably thought of this, but in the new security breach trailer, Gregory is infront of a bunch of cameras. If you look closely at his shirt you can see 2 grey stripes. And who has those stripes. The crying child. So does the crying child= Gregory?! probably not.

In the new trailer for FNAF (security breach), we see a child called Gregory. In the shot where we see him, if you turn the brightness up, you can see that the child has the same 2 stripes on his shirt that the crying child has, so what if the crying child is actually named Gregory?

My theory might be wrong but what if the crying child which is Michael afton lost his soul after he died in the hospital but because the purple guy was able to “rebuild” him he was left to be soul less but alive and the crying child soul was still in golden freddy? Just a thought I had.

So what if the crying child is the father (Evan) and Michal Afton is also the crying child's brother? The one who terrorized Evan / crying child, however maybe the reason the book isn't cannon is because this is a different dimension where crying child survives the bite or maybe never gets bit at all and instead takes form in HIS child for cheating death?

I know this isn’t the video but I’m targeting the Golden Freddy solved thing and also the “your pain powers us” thing. You said that the animatronics are either possessed by souls OR agony, so then why is Golden Freddy twitching according to all cutscenes? (mainly referencing 9800 cutscene UCN) you also said that there could be more than just 2 souls in Golden Freddy, so what if, just throwing this out here, Golden Freddy isn’t actually twitching, but there is a soul controlling each moving part and they’re just trying to become in sync or something in that category...also, I’m questioning why in FNAF 2 when Golden Freddy jumpscares, there are no eyes (white dots) seen, yet in the 9800 UCN cutscene there are eyes, (white dots) and it’s even more odd since it’s farther away. That I have no possibly explanation for (none with logic at least) but yeah that’s a thing. :>

Ok, I'm not convinced, but there's enough there that it's not out of the question. If we have theory on how to use the alphabet grid, could someone check what page an would direct you to for an answer to the question? If there's something feasible there, we probably have our solution. If not, back to the drawing board.

I have a theory but what if Michael was the crying child and his older brother Terrence put him in the head of Fred Bear and like you said the nightmares were just done illusion disk just like as we find a Funtime Freddy making his toy plushies look more real and ballora is Clara and the animatronic was possessed by her soul because of her song she sings was her story and what if the story wasn't Michael's but what if Terrance his older brother was he one who got scooped.

I’m never been a fan of horror game or horror story’s. I’ve watched FNAF let’s plays but I never got in to FNAF till I watched my first Game Theory vid on FNAF. I’ve been reading the books... but I’m still to chicken to play the games. That was till I watched the trailer for Security Breach. I’m hell bent on playing this one and it’s thank to you MatPat and the FNAF creator. I have fallen in love with FNAF even if I’ve never played the games... Sorry I’m having a hard time typing this and not getting tears on the keyboard (YES I’M CRYING) The FNAF story and characters helped to inspire a story (for a game or book) I’ve been working on for 9 years (but still working on). So I just want to say Thank you.😊

Hey I have a theory as well but, if you have seen the security breach trailer, the music seems similar to me, and if you listen the balloras music box the music matches in 0:30 in the new trailer, so maybe security breach is linked with ballora or sister location in a way?

My theory: I'm a little onto this one now. is it possible the crying child is actually named after Eddie Van Halen? Im looking at it this way having noticed the striking similarity between Withered Chica and how Angus Young looks on the cover for AC/DCs Powerage. And if you listen to the lyrics of Enter Sandman by Metallica, you may notice some similarities between the events of FNaF IV and the lyrics of the song. is it possible that we need to look in these highly unexpected areas to complete the lore? it may just be my metalhead self speaking, but I can really see the similarities between these things and the series. because if I'm being honest, there have been many unexpected turns in the franchise, so we need to look in places we would never expect, like a genre of music, Classic Rock.
