Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?
Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
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.

    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

  • EvanBevan

    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.

    The Crying Child may still be alive. Purple Guy said he would "fix him". This may mean he was turned into a animatronic child, and he is seen in Security Breach when he looks at the cameras. There are two lines representing his shirt and same skin color, black shirt, and hair. And yes, I may be wrong. But this seems quite reasonable.

    Is there any reason why William Afton wanted to kill kids? Or is that unknown because I think The crying child is William afton after the bite he grows up and gets his revenge on other kids but of course there are so many problems to this thought.

    Who else noticed that the new fazbear frights 7 tag along freddy toy and it's description kind of looks like and sounds like the description for lonely freddy from fazbear frights 2?... That's sus. Edit : I mean they are both toys that follow a certain kid from someone controlling it ( the father in the story " the cliffs " and the employees in the " lonely freddy " story, ) they are both freddy, they both have a speaker that the person controlling it can hear ( Alec in " lonely freddy " and tyler in " the cliffs " ), and the toys are for kids who don't have any friends. Like in the new story tyler ( the father's kid ) is a lonely kid after his mother died and has no friends at daycare, then they get tag along freddy, tyler goes missing, tag along freddy keeps telling the dad to go to the cliffs and they find him there. So tag along freddy was more like a friend in the story. And in " lonely freddy " is when a teen Alec wants to expose his sister for being a spoiled brat, that backfires and goes in the storage room to cry, lonely freddy comes and tries to befriend Alec and cheer him up. Only to steal his original body. So my theory is that tag along freddy is alec's form of lonely freddy, he felt bad for not being a good brother so when he got a new owner he tried to help. But the father thought he did something to tyler and burned him, then he kept texting him from the watch because he knew where he went. And then when the father finally did what the bear said he found his son. Just my theory though.
