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.

    Bruh. What if the crying child never died? Like idk. But it seems like EVAN may be the person with the 'missing frontal lobe' as you've stated or something.. And went on to live and had a child or something.? Like, I've somehow noticed how we don't really know who the child that was mentioned in the bite of 87 is or something but ehhhh. Lol

    Hey i just had a thought if the purple man is a killer then why did he make it so eazy to find him out well i have the answer ok sister location at the end we see enard get inside of mike and use him as a vessle but here is where the purple guy comes into play bacicly fazbearz entertainment knew that the purple guy was experamenting with life and death and he was able to make sentiant robots so they knew that mike had ennard in him and he was reeking havic on the world so purple guy made the robots sentiant with one goal kill mike then comes fnaf 1 and 2 those were the two attempts to kill mike but they never succeeded and we can skip fnaf 3 but in fnaf four is where it gets juicey so the mini games arnt the crying childs games there michals they are flashbacks of the most traic moment of his life then we see the actuall gameplay where hes fighting the nightmares and this is when those scenes in sister location that showed mike walking and day by day mike had to fight the nighmares in his mind forever traped until ennard comes out of him and then he gets revived and lives on and also ennard lives on as well. (side note the purple man was betrayed by the spirits and was made into springtrap). But matpat if you see this just think why did the purple guy make it so ovious for us the therists and fazbearz entertainment and that was my thery on fnaf i hope matpat sees this and mentions a video about it. BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY, A GAME THEORY THANKS FOR READING.

    There's something I'm wondering 'bout... (sorry, just went on a fnaf game theory marathon and I'm puzzled) If Michael is Will Afton's son, but there was a theory about crying child being Henry's son... (fnaf 4 child, happening in Henry's house, keeping his son away from animatronics and watching him through camera's after his daughter died and became the puppet -yeah, I know, summary) How are they even brother?

    I was reading the third fazbear frights book, and I noticed a small but consistent detail. In the last story, titled the new kid. *spoilers ahead* when Kelsey gets into the Freddy suit, he tries to dance in it. The book notes that Kelsey specifically put both his arms out to the side before the spring traps snapped shut. At first I thought it was something oddly specific to point out. But in fnaf 2? I believe.. the 8 bit minigames.. when afton goes into the spring Bonnie suit, his arms go straight out to the sides before the spring traps snapped shut too. It got me thinking... I wonder if it means anything...

    I do feel like that’s a really solid theory, especially since it makes sense for Cassidy to be talking to SOMEONE when she asks those questions. And the answers to those questions do make sense to be the Crying Child honestly.

    Wait I have a little theory but I’m not sure if it’s not completely right So remember back in Fnaf 2 the Foxy Go Go Go minigame? Then when foxy sees five dead children in a room. Maybe when Ozzy found dead’s kids in the dining area MAYBE those are the same dead kids back in the Foxy Go Go Go minigame? Just a little theory

    Is it just me that disagree with Peter = Mike = glitchtrap? I don't think that door is anyway closed. Let me recap some thoughts: 1 - Balora Balora's song says "Why do you hide inside your walls/When there's music in my halls" The character that hides from the music is the puppet. so she is talking to the puppet I do agree that she is a motherly character. she often refers hearing. her closed eyes my refer to the fact that she used to be blind and thus have an heightened hearing sense. She proceed to sing "i roam thedr halls alone all day/but now you're here friend and prey" which for me references that she isn't related to "us" os rather "Mike" 2 - The crying child I've share this in other videos about the "mustard man", but i 'll leave it here as well. Let's go back to the racing mini-game. So Henry -the mustard man -has at least 2 childs: a Daughter-charlote and a Son-crying child. On that night, the girl is lured by the killer wearing a bunny suit-Will Afton, with the help of her dog! The son CC, watches from his room, and then beaks the window to follow them "to that place" where he witnesses the murder of his sister. That's why the girl's room is empty, that's why he's scared by the bunny suit man at the pizzaria and why he's always crying. "You know what will happen if he catches you!" but the killer, needs to erase the witness, and follows the boy, capturing him outside the pizzaria, as we see in the mini-game "Take cake to the children". only that's not the correct boy. And so the killer needs to kill the real witness, and thus the bite occurs... Going back to the racing minigame, there's a guy watching TV that says "Leave him alone tonight" is the "brother" that keeps scaring him with the foxy mask. Or could it be the mother? 3 - one more thing, the connection to the "Purple phone" still bugs me! it still reminds me of the *crank held by the purple guy... if a purple phone is an object that can be related to a character, then it makes sense to use that object in every representation of that character. May i remind you of a simpler time when we thought the purple guy was the good guy trying to save us from the vengeful sprits? if they are attacking the wrong purple guy, this may still be the case. So the purple guy, is holding a phone, is the child in Fnaf4

    I am not a theorist or anything but this is the first time I'm seeing "Evan" anywhere and I may be biased but I think it could be true. I haven't seen any thoughts of Evan being the crying childs name except for the results in this video. If people were getting super sure it was Evan then I feel Scott would try to use it more and trick us. I may be wrong but that is my idea.

    You ever realize that the Freddy that’s holding Gregory in the new game kinda has some features like the Funtime animatronics or the “twisted ones”. What if in this future there’s a bad ending where the remenant from the old Funtime animatronics were somehow cut off kinda like the 9 tails in naruto and in this ending after defeating vanny the remenant breaks out taking over this Freddy we see and what if he says something like this “Gregory, I am sorry. I didn’t what this to happen but I’ve realized the true intention of my creation. I was built for this and I have to carry it out *locks Gregory inside of his stomach*. Master, (referring to William Afton) I have found the one you have been searching for. I will bring him to you.” Wow that went way outa hand. But seriously Mat you should look into this. Could be a future ending in security breach.
