    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.

      5. Sleepy Eliza

        who u?

    2. NoobNoob1212

      Well would u look at that a new fnaf trailer here we go again

    3. The Aperture Theorists

      Nah Crying Child was named by his mother Crying Child

    4. Ryanthe Doctor11

      What do you mean The Real Jake was the only one with no direct connection to Five Nights at Freddy's and Freddy Fazbears, what about Bunny Call?

    5. Hellmayor

      Pls im begging you just make a conclusion of everything what was found and was left unanswered in fnaf lore so far

    6. Hope eternal_peace

      im pretty sure the name simon is the name of one of micheal aftons friends though who helped with the meant to be prank the bite

    7. CODM_ NA_YT


    8. ᴄᴏᴄᴏ ʟᴀᴛᴇ

      I actually have come up with a theory myself over time. What if there's another child actually named Eva and the N found is the beginning of the Crying Child's actual name... Crying Child's name could start with a *N* and an unknown child, or mystery child might be name Eva. The three latter 'E' 'V' 'A' might actually be *part* of the puzzle and might fit somewhere else. The 'N' might be from another puzzle, but maybe there's more letters within that puzzle. I'm not sure if this made sense, but I hope it's readable. 👁👄👁👍

    9. Hope eternal_peace

      The Crying Child is the main protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 4's end of night minigames. He is the victim of the Chomp/Bite of ‘83. this is the crying child description now look at this is the second kid of William Afton and is the bite victim of the Bite Of '87. After the Bite of 83, he was in a coma and while in the coma experienced multiple nightmares. The nightmares are what the player experiences in FNAF 4. the 1st part of this sentence says the crying child but its under a subtitle saying "Explaining Chris Afton" meaning Chris Afton, One of William Aftons 3 children is the crying child

    10. Hope eternal_peace

      crying child is Williams Afton aka the murderer that killed the spirits son Chris, he died from a prank known as "the bite" pulled by his older brother Terrance who most know as Michael and his friends he is known as the crying child as when Michael bullied him he called Chris a cry baby and when he died he was crying so I'm guessing the tears he had when he died stuck onto his spirit

    11. María Ramos Najji

      The name of the crying chils is Cristofer Afton.

    12. Emilia Björk

      plot twist: scott just made the game for fun, but ppl started making theories so he just tried to make new games following the theories

    13. XBones

      Hear me out guys. I think the crying child is..... .....Mephisto.

    14. Tyler D

      I really would like to see a theory on The Room. It's a great puzzle game series with a hidden truth that unfolds as you play the games. They recently released their 4th pc game and I think there is some good theorizing to be done throughout the games.

    15. wolfietimestrio

      Isint evan or cc sleeping forever the phone guy said

    16. Mr.a2000 Yaaaas

      well some people are saying the crying child's name is Chris

    17. SommerwurstHD

      Maybe the crying child's name is just eva And this story is gonna turn into a story where people fight angels with hige robots

    18. Suhana Maharjan

      Maybe Mike real name is evan

    19. Amanda Buell

      CCs real name is Chris afton

      1. Enid Animates

        No, that’s just what people called him as they didn’t know his actual name.

    20. STAN LOONA

      years have past since FNAF was bombarded with normal dudes-turned KOlove famous. and that THEORY isn't solved at all?! for me, i dont care anymore... i miss 2014

    21. tanjiro.official

      I used to call him Michael afton Jr.

    22. Justin Hayes

      I have a theory about scrap chica so it is the fnaf 1 chica the same one that was dismantled in the night end minigames in fnaf 3 my theory is that the suit is empty her soul moved on so it is just a shell of what it once was.

    23. Mj Williams

      What video is the Monika costume from 3:22 if I know tell me

    24. Miguel Gonzalez

      The bite of 83 kid is still alive and Is the night guard in all the games

    25. dylandrin

      am i the only one who thought matpat sounded like penny wise?

    26. william taylor

      mat can you do a theory on slender man

    27. Drake Boutte

      At this point, you can’t “solve” FNAF right now considering there is a new game coming in a little while, so that’s another assload of lord to figure out

    28. sebastian thorsen

      i have seen people say the crying child i called chris

      1. Enid Animates

        Yes, because otherwise he was nameless, so I guess they chose Chris because I guess the *Ch* in child and the noise *ri* and just called him that!

    29. Rinah Joyce B. Muyrong

      it's Chris duh

      1. soupinfested guy

        no its not. chris is just some name the fnaf gacha fandom made up

    30. PCWD vlogs and gaming

      Hey Mat, random thing here but have u noticed that when you die from molten Freddy in ultimate custom night, he has the same voice as the Bonnie puppet on fun time Freddy’s hand? Probably nothing interesting but 👍

    31. Normal person

      Everybody gangsta until MatPat made the video

    32. Logan McNeill

      When I first played fnaf 4 with my mom I chose to give the crying child a name and guess what that name was.........EVAN! Hahaha I beat you reddit users and matpat I beat you 2 years before you! jk it was just I thought he looked like an evan

    33. MJ Howl

      E V A N

    34. Path_Nova

      Keep up good work matpat


      best game theory and have fun playing the new fnaf game

    36. Unicornsbeastyo

      i think the crying child is Gregory from security breech. the crying child was killed in 1983, as evidence from the TV in the crying child's living room. and the location visited in the silver eyes, is an abandoned mall where they built over the original Freddy's pizzeria location. the silvers eyes takes place in 1995 leaving plenty of room for the mall to shut down. I know that "Dave" if that is his real name, is still walking around but, we can ignore that because the books are not exactly canon, different elements take place in different corners of the series canon. We can assume that Gregory witnessed a murder right? well some people would argue that the crying child ALSO witnessed a murder. Therefore, Gregory could very well be the crying child. The only problem with that theory is we do not know exactly when the mall was open.

      1. Jakub Grono

        I dont think this is crying child becuse fnaf seciurity breach is a sequel to fnaf help wanted with happend after all of the orginal fnaf games and that would mean that crying child is already is golden freddy

    37. Eliane Caetano


    38. faith Ward carmello

      This has nothing to do with this theory but in ultimate custom night during the Chica high school cut scenes at one point you can see foxy's Hook in Chicas bag probably already covered it but just want to point it out

    39. Dennis’ Blog

      100% sold

    40. Geebros

      I had a doubt. Is Freddy's (First one) open before/while the bite of '83? If no, then press read more. If yes, it makes sense but if you want to see the problem, then you can press read more. Because, in the start of FNaF 4, Evan's (Or crying child{Hello EvanTubeGaming}.) room have the main four on the corner. How does he have their plushies when Freddy's is open after the Bite of '83? (If freddy's is open after the Bite of '83)

    41. Fellow Australian

    43. Bhumika Dahal

      Crying child name is Chris -,- there

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        No,Chris=fanmade name

    44. xXfAzEm0Oz3Xx street namexXlongishboiiiXx

      Personally I'm not convinced because Evan would have been mentioned somewhere else not just the story and the foxy draw-it task. Evan seems too much like a red herring. Think about it every other thing has had hints to more than one thing towards a theory. But that pattern in itself could be a red herring so I need more evidence toward this to convince ms

    60. Myrixica

      Okay, not related to the contents of this video, but I've been binging fnaf theories tonight and I can't sleep and I think I just worked out the Stitchwraith Storyline and how it ties into the main story of the older games. 1-UCN. What we know so far: The emotion of Agony is what powers Remnant and allows souls to possess animatronics. Multiple sources of Agony can be pooled into a single Animatronic. Henry's was in Agony over the death of his daughter. Henry Rebuilt his daughter as an animatronic and her soul appears to possess it. Henry built the Stitchwraith endoskeleton which goes on to kill him, per his wishes. Stitchwraith goes onto collect parts of other animatronics and items that possess Remnant/agony. Stitchwraith "dies" protecting Charlie, Henry's rebuilt daughter. Henry is somehow alive to set up the events of Pizzeria Simulator. Henry burns down the Pizzeria Simulator to destroy the gathered Animatronics. Remnant can only be destroyed with High Temperatures. Henry Remains nearby during the fire to die along with the player and the Animatronics. What I think the Stitchwraith is up to is either: A) The stitchwraith is rebuilding and reviving Henry using the Agony/remnant of the Parts he is able to collect Or B) The stitchwraith IS Henry and he is collecting the parts to repair himself to continue his mission. Regardless the end goal is the same, to allow Henry to indefinitely chase down William and finally put an end to Williams plans and murders and claim his revengence, as per what we found out in the UCN Freddy Vs Foxy Intermissions. I think that would then place the Stitchwraith events as occurring after William gets trapped in the Spring Bonnie suit. Henry Knows about Remnant, he knows what it can do, and most likely knows Agony, like the kind one would feel with the death William suffered would lead to him possessing the the Spring Bonnie suit. Henry, by the events of Pizzeria Simulator clearly feels responsible, if not obligated to stop William, no matter what or how long it takes. He would want to ensure that if William somehow escaped from the sealed up safety room he would be able to continue to chase him and try to defeat him. It is their destiny. But hey, that's just a theory. Edit: Reposting this on the GT reddit page I just remembered existed. Account name Ceroxis.

    61. DarkBlu117z Crookedneck

      You should do a theory of Tattletail. Plz

    62. LJ Raynar

      Well then this mean the "Chris" name in all of those cringey gacha videos have to change. And its gonna take alot of work.

      1. soupinfested guy

        i hate how the fnaf fandom calls ballora "roselle"

    63. Dan Woo

      (whispers) consider one quick "complete timeline as we know it" vid before security breach releases... pwease

    64. Lexus Toscano

      Also in the trailer we keep hearing a clock ticking?? What is that supposed to mean??

    65. its just keith

    66. Lexus Toscano

      Okay so I have a thought in mind, why is Gregory in the trailer have blonde hair but then in the statute it’s brown?? Is this just a coincidence or maybe there might just be a other kid in this game that we’ll get introduced to??

    67. EON TALKS

      Noice LWIAY Outro though

    68. Kayla Hope

      I feel like Evan has a connection, like how you said with the other book about the child in the hospital, but if we are trying to say the crying child is the Evan from that book doesn't that not add up at all considering the crying child died as a child in the bite of '87? Maybe I understood it wrong and what he was getting at was different than what I just said, but ya I feel like it's close but not quite there....

      1. Scott Cotton

        The crying child died in the bite of 83, not 87. And the evan in the real jake isn’t actually the crying child, he’s just meant to remind us of him

    69. Turtle Texter

      My friend's name is Evan

    70. Midnight 83

      You sir just made my day with this vedio :0 From previous vedios-my god what did that poor fan ever do too you?.

    71. Isaac Connell

      Or is the crying child Jake?

    72. googles most wanted search because why not

      Here's something I haven't seen you talk about this tiny detail. Go to fnaf 1 notice how the kitchens cam is disabled all of the time

    73. ッ

      My name is not Jake

    74. Will Martin

      But if Evan was the name of the crying child... and then died and wound up in Golden Freddy... How did he have a son?

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        the answer is simple, the book universe is different from the game one

    75. PlussDeku

      Omg you might be right

    76. MewtwoShadowFNaFGirl

      The Books for me are kinda starting to feel less like FNaF so I sort of gave up on getting the Books at this point.

    77. Golden Freddy

      Chris Afton is crying child’s name

      1. •SMoL Jade•

        No Chris is a fanmade name

    78. D.J Llama08

      I just realised. In Fnaf 4, couldnt u just turn on the light, the nightmares are scared of it??

      1. Attack Helicopter



      So I found something in reddit an answer that will solve c.c or the crying child so what I see is this :does he still talk to you and :does this song familiar to you end the qouit so some couniton to someone who sing a song to the crying child and Micheal that don't talk to the crying child this

        i hate it how they called ballora "roselle"

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        @Yza Dan by the way, why did they even start shipping them? Because Ennard killed Michael?

      3. Ya Boi

        @Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy BRUH SAME I’M SO GLAD I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE

      4. Yza Dan

        @Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy I was actually reading a comment about this topic. I HATE THAT SHIP SO MUCH. Like ennard is an animatronic made by the rest of the fun times, including Elizabeth Afton who is Micheal's dead sister. One of the most common excuses is: C.B (Elizabeth) was kicked out ennard so it isn't incest. Let me cut through that statement! (Danganronpa reference ) At fnaf 5 the funtimes made ennard using parts of themselves. They then proceeded to scoop Michael alive and use him as a skin suit. You probably know the rest so I'll just skip a bit. Soon the rest of the fun times kicked out circus baby who became scrap baby and ennard became molten freddy. I guess that means if you ship ennard and Michael your also shipping him with his dead sister because ennard contains baby. And you have to ship molten Freddy with Michael not ennard so it won't be incest. But even if you ship molten with mike there is still a problem. The funtimes were made by William Afton to kidnap kids to experiment with their remnant, and in one story in the fnaf books funtime Freddy kidnapped a child. But I didn't read the books so I dont have enough information. But the funtimes may contain many souls of children and shipping them with mike is pedophillia. I can go on and on about this ship but I'll stop here.

      5. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        @Yza Dan I am also confused by the fact that they are shipping "Michael and Ennard", IT IS LITERALLY "MIKE AND ELIZABETH WITH FUNTIMES."IT'S DISGUSTING Sorry, I just can't accept this

    82. DracoFire

      You've really gotta organize this playlist, Matt.

    83. Milinko

      Who else is so confused at this point we just need a whole ‘basic’ recap of absolutely everything

    84. buddy wentz

      the new fnafe secerdy breach trailer

    85. Leah Vanderpool

      I doubt this to be completely true. Evan from the book, granted I'm going off of what I've heard because I haven't read the book yet, is a father, has a brother named Michael, and his kid has a tumor in the front left part of his brain. Now the crying child from the FNAF series is one son of three kids total, has a brother named Michael (an older brother), and has lost his front left lobe in his brain from the bite of 1983. think that it's worth mentioning that at the end of five nights at Freddy's 4, the crying child's heartbeat monitor flatlines. In response to that psychic friend fredbear replies, "I will put you back together again." Now, last I knew, humans can't be torn apart and put back together like a toy or ROBOT. ROBOTS can't reproduce to have children either. Could they create one? Possibly. But all evidence points to this rather being less from the perspective of Evan and more the perspective of Evans son. After all, what if Michael or William spoke to the crying child through the walkie-talkie to calm them during the night? When their nightmares were the worst?

      When I thought of ennard and Michael afton: So if en killed mike what if CB aka Elizabeth Afton was controlling en Bc she forgives mike for bullying cris afton well most ppl call him that but as we call him today “crying child” And Elizabeth tried to give mike a so called “another life” Gt fans, the wons who agree: Fans: OMG UR SO SMART The bully ones: Fans: ur so bad # EW The gacha tubers of fnaf: Fans: YAAAAS

        @Charming nowhere to hide chris is just some name the fnaf fandom made up keyboard warrior

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        @Charming nowhere to hide 1) Chris is a fan-made name, and not like a canon. 2) What makes you think that he is Shadow Freddy? Shadow Freddy is either a remnant or a nightguard's vision, but he is definitely not a separate animatronic. Stop spreading false information!

      3. Elixirjacob Cruz

        @Charming nowhere to hide i see

      4. Charming nowhere to hide

        first of all crying child’s name is chris afton, second if there were two spirits in golden freddy it would be cassidy and anyone else except chris because chris possesses shad

    98. Annika Choi

      I’m convinced that the name Evan for the crying child is not 100% confirmed, but I am also convinced that we can kinda start calling the crying child some other name, for now at least. So for the time being, I’m going to start head cannoning the crying child’s name to be Evan. But only for now.
