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.

Guys I think I know the fnaf 4 lore. Here is my opinion. The crying child Is being manipulated by his golden Freddy plush. He wants the crying child to think that all the animatronics are bad and that he's the only good one. the way he made these nightmare animatronics in the child's mind is by using the illusion disc. And you may be thinking oh if this is an illusion then how come the child dies after being caught by one? see on the side of the bed he's in medical treatment. I think that means you can't really see anything scary cos he has like anxiety and I think he might get a heart attack or something and die. that is all I can explain. I'll try and give you the lore of nightmare but it's just been really hard and stressful, but if you can reply to this with the lore of nightmare before I'm able to update this then congrats, and like I said finding the lore of nightmare has been extremely stressful and hard, but I think that nightmare is golden Freddy's spirit. As you can see, nightmare has a golden top hat and a golden bow tie. That's all I can say for now I don't really have more info.

Okay so the new security breach trailer just came out today and someone pointed out that if you put a certain filter on the part where the kids looking at the screens you can see a black shirt with white stripes and people think he's holding a bear in his hand so it might be the crying child

Matpat, if you look closely at the new fnaf security breach trailer you can see that when there's a kid standing in front of the monitors you can see gray stripes on the back of his shirt. And guess who also has gray stripes on the BACK of his. shirt. The crying child. So is the kid standing in front of the monitors aka Gregory. Also the crying child?! Maybe?!

Hey Matt! Tiktok user @_nj_here_ pointed out something about the new Security Breach trailer that corresponds with this video in a way, as well as Into the Pit from the Fazbear Frights series, and I want to expand on it a bit. She shows the scene with Gregory standing in front of the monitors while a voice speaks to him (“Ill get you out of here”) And upon looking at it, she points out how his shirt is dark colored with two grey stripes, just like the Crying Child’s. Of course, Gregory isn’t the crying child, but will he play a role in revealing his name? I was also watching your video talking about “Into the Pit” and the murders of 1985, and how the rabbit shows off the 6 children they’ve killed. You also mentioned how you thought we might see some of that in the new game, so I wonder if we’ll see some of Vanny’s crimes tie into other aspects of the series. Could this have bigger implications later on? Who’s to say, for now anyway. I’d love to see your thoughts on the new trailer!

There is a game called astroneer and i was wondering if you would be interested to do a theory on it so basically you are a astronaut for a company called exo and you are starting development in a solar system either alone or with friends and through out the game there is a bunch of wreckage of some thing you can make in the game as well as non expanded version of the space pod you get to the starting planet on so that means either the company is wasting pods or other astroneers came there before you and since you cant find them they are probably dead also im pretty sure you can find the backpacks that arent from your deaths maybe the wreckage of the stuff that you can make is stuff the dead astroneers made

The new fnaf trailer came out today, in that trailer the person you are playing as has blondish hair and a shirt that has 2 stripes in dark gray and light gray. Exactly like the crying child. But the name he is giving is Gregory. But we don't have much to work off of.
can we all just thank matpat for not randomly adding a jump scare

I just feel like even with this being a story to Compare with similar names, it doesn’t make sense that Evan would be old and having kids despite being killed as a child and haunting an animatronic bear? It’s too much to overlook to be sold on this theory but very close

The crying child is Cassidy. The Crying Child after death knew what caused his death, so he tortures his own father. And what about when each time you get jumpscared by Golden Freddy? That IS the face of the Crying Child. Because, remember, Fredbear caused Crying Child to die in "The Chomp of '83". And then Fredbear was scrapped, and some of the pieces were used to remake Golden Freddy. That's why I think The Crying Child = Cassidy. Cassidy is torturing his own father for all his crimes, and all the deaths he caused.

MATPAT I HAVE SOME THINGS TO SAY. Since the new trailer has the back of Gregory I noticed that he has a striped shirt. And from the figure he has brown hair. Alot like the crying child.... I have more If I am correct then the pizza plex is open the same time that fredbears is open. Which means he went to both at sometime. When he got chomped and subsequently put back together maybe the glamrock animatronics were there at that time. So maybe the animatronics told the crying child that he is a robot since they are sentient as well Also if vanny in her normal night guard self hears this then as a psycho working for afton she might get the orders to restart him. Which might be a game mechanic making you hide in freddy while he tries to help you through the night WHICH MEANS THE CRYING CHILDS NAME IS GREGORY also in fnaf vr we find vannys mask in a old barn. It looks old and....used. So that means in vr canny has already gone on her rampage I rest my case.

So one thing that I thought is that if jakes father was supposed to be related to the crying child, then why isn’t he the one who goes on to possess the doll and go onto the stitchwraith. I mean if jake was the one to share a similar story to the crying child then wouldn’t it make sense for the crying child to be named jake instead?

Why do I keep thinking Evan is the brother of the crying child instead of the crying Childs name? Lets think about it, the doll inside the cabinet is the tumor kid's father, Evan. In the fnaf game, foxy (crying Childs brother) is shown to hide in a cabinet and does a jump scare that doesn't kill us...I'm very convinced that the name Evan goes to foxy. Either that or I'm just being stupid.

Ryan Guttman
Ryan Guttman Pred 2 urami
Here's an idea: We've already established that FoxyBro is Michael Afton, right? Well, this is how the Foxy magazine and the tally marks can be related: Evan's name is broken apart. The E,V, and A are found in one way, but the N is found using the tally marks and the foxy magazine. Foxy provides one segment of the answer, and Michael provides another. If FoxyBro and Michael are the same guy, then Michael is giving us the clues to help put his dead brother's identity back together, just like the FNaF 4 quote on the crying child's deathbed: "I will put you back together." Cassidy also helps along with him in the logbook, providing the other three letters. This is why the FNaF 4 quote is in gold: Because she is speaking through Golden Freddy. She and Michael put him back together by reassembling his name, therefore giving him identity and have him "Be Complete" as Scrap Baby would say.

Cassidy said- it was for you- and Michael said it was for me which he meant his BIRTHDAY! Michael is also Golden Freddy because it says ITS ME which Michael wants to give attention to His dad. If Evan is The crying child then why did they call him Michael Afton? Wait.. EVAN AFTON!! We don’t know Cassidys parents but they may be figured out but Cassidy and Evan(Michael) are Golden Freddy.

I think crying child is Gregory from the new game. They have similar hairstyles and the shirt looks the same. The end of the new game trailer even has the hand of a nightmare animatronic... Maybe even Nightmare himself. Who we already think is haunting the child with the head injury (crying child) the trailer also has quotes " when fear takes hold, when reality fails." "And insanity prevails." All things that can be from a severe head injury or trauma. The word fear can even link back to nightmares just going to add to this. to further add to my theory that crying child and Gregory are the same person... the theme with the animatronics and even in their name is Glam rock, glam rock in America got really popular in the 80's. what if this place is not in the future or current time... but takes place in the 80's. now part of that can both derail my theory and support my theory about the nightmare animatronic. we could play as the boy getting ready to be bitten, or playing as the boy in the later 80's after having recovered from his near death of the bite?
