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.

  • MATPAT MATPAT THIS IS an EMERGENCY If u seen the trailer for fnaf security breach u might know what im talking about. I think i just solve something!!!!! at a scene where u can see a creepy hand on the ground behind a cabinet(i think its a cabinet) I think i know who's hand is that ITS WILLIAM, here are the reasons: 1.the sharp claws are springtrap's claws because when the fire started and fazbears u can see most of the animatronics have sharp claw example scrap baby and u know that William is springtrap and he has been through to FIRE AND HE BECOME PENUT HEAD!!!! 2. As u can see closely, the arms are purple and my theory is, when i the minigames u can see William becoming more and more purple same goes as Micheal and u know that micheal afton is rottening, so william must me rottening to right? PLEASE DO A VIDEO ABOUT THIS IM VERY CONFIDENT WITH MY THEORY thanks for everything matpat

  • Hey MatPat! Long time fan here! Just wanna ask you a quick question - one of my favorite FNAF videos GT made was the one about the original book trilogy possibly revealing that the crying child, the house in FNAF 4, and the mustard man are not Afton, but Emily (with mustard man being Henry, not William, and Michael being Henry's son), but I noticed that moving forward you went back to calling Michael "Michael Afton" and the crying child as William's son. I guess I found it oddly inconsistent of you. Just wanna know which one are we supposed to stick with in your theories now? Ngl I'm definitely in the Emily camp, but I wanna hear it from you :) cheers!

  • I think what it means by " he is really intense about making money " is that micheal from the story is the same character from pizzeria simulator that you play as and that is also supposed to be michael afton so I think the michael in the real jake story is actually micheal afton and not just scott reusing names to throw us off like how the name jeremy is

  • Now i may be completely wrong, but we see an action figure that Gregory is inside of freddy. Meaning could gregory could die while inside of Freddy causing his soul to be lost inside of him? (the main theory is he could die inside of the freddy suit causing his soul to be stuck inside of him)

  • not a theory (yet) but a theme I noticed in ALL the Fazbear Fright books: Each of the three stories have something in common in order of the story: Story 1: The main character has regret and deals with the consequences for actions or feelings they do or have toward family or friends. Story 2: A character (usually the main) is body swapped or replaced with an animatronic (nearly all are established animatronics) Story 3: Someone (usually the main) dies by an animatronic.

But fnaf 4 wasn't in a bedroom it was in a hospital as you could see a drip in one of the nights. This is just a conclusion i put together :D thanks for listening

  • I may be wrong but going back to one of your last theories, and the info that is laid out for us. Isnt crying child Henry's son. Because we now know that the house from Fnaf 4 is Henry's (due to the books), shouldn't the crying child who is trapped in the house be Henry's son not Afton's. This probably makes no sense and I'm no expert but just my thoughts. Ps. Thanks for reading the books so indent have to

  • Before you get mad at me for this, just listen. We know Aston is springtrap, since in ucn it called scraptrap “Afton” and scaptrap is springtrap who is purple guy. But what if mustered man is William and purple guy is mike? When does it actually say that purple guy is WILLIAM afton? This would seem to solve a few points that have bothered people, although I am not saying that this is definite. Just think about it and what it can mean for the lore. Please like this so Mattpat sees it. The only time it would be weird for the games is in ucn in the old man consequences part where afton is screaming “mike.” Other than that I don’t see anything in the games that disproves this. Again, just something I would like for people to think about.

  • So, I have a thought. Matpat, if you see this, please hear me out. We all know how we are missing one Afton family member: Mrs. Afton. We have already established that Ballora may be a Mrs. Afton stand-in. We also know that Scott Cawthon doesn't do coincidences. So when we are introduced to the ONLY possibly adult female character in the franchise, it triggered something. Vanessa, who we do not know the last name of, might be an Afton? So, I looked at Ballora and nothing really stood out except for the song. So I re-listened to the song and may have found something. I know this song can be interpreted different ways, but this one does make sense. "Why do you hide inside your walls", we are playing as Gregory, a kid who is hiding behind anything he can so he doesn't die. "When there is music in my halls" We are in a pizza plex, it is most likely going to be loud with music. "All I see is an empty room, no more joy an empty tomb" All the other kids are gone, no more children playing, no more joy. No one is there making it an "empty tomb" for us. This all sounds great and all, but then my next question would be: "Why isn't Ballora in Fnaf VR?" Mat, your roast may come back to haunt you. Could it be that Ballora isn't in Fnaf VR because then there would technically be two of the same character? We know that in that game we are listening to "tape girl" or Vanessa. So wouldn't it be weird for us to be talking to Vanessa and to be fighting against a "Vanessa stand-in". So maybe that is why she isn't there. I feel as if this is just a bunch of loose ends that I'm trying to tie together, but this is all I got.

  • I know the theory is 2 spirits in golden freddie (GF) but I think theres only one. So the crying child from FNAF4 is in GF then in sister location night 4 you're trapped in a spring lock suit. If that turns out to be the GF suit then it means GF got scooped, the only way it isnt the GF suit is if theres a third spring lock suit we never saw. Because we saw spring trap alive at the end of sister location when michael calls out to his father. Then when Enard enters the player he leaves but the purple guy doesnt die. Could that be because his brothers spirit stays behind and keeps him alive?

  • Hey mat pat I have a theory about fnaf 4 what if we are playing as michael afton and not the crying child. I think that he is having nightmares about what he did to his brother a burning reminder of what him and his friends did. Like you said when you said that fnaf 4 doesn't make sense if it were real. Shouldn't the crying child be in the hospital why would he be at his house and he is sleeping in the crying child's room because he misses his brother.
