    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.

      3. Train guy 1 A

        EvanTubeGaming huh funny WAIT

      4. Bettina Sherwood

        if anyone remembered the bite of 83 FAN animation they didnt contain the voice lines of the accual fnaf actors also they didnt sound british

      5. Bettina Sherwood

        @Jasmin Batajoy no that was never a name confirmed by scot that was the name of fans also gacha steros deciding to give him a name simular to c.c. scot never said his name was cgris. end of story

    2. Mr.doge747

      WAIT! how do we know fredbear was always his name.

    3. Creepy Wolf Dragon

      Funny enough my brother named Evan likes to watch your videos and freaked out over this. And fun fact. Evan means Young warrior

    4. WishingStarBun play

      His name is chris

    5. Practical Memez

      Wait.. was chris just a fan name?! come i never knew this...

    6. Freadbearboi 2020

      What if the girl in fazebear frights book 4 is vanny backstory

    7. Henry Entertainment System

      Honestly, we've ignored Balloon Boy for so long that I actually want a theory on him.

    8. LuigiGaming305

      Weird thought, but Ive been rewatching these theories, and I was wondering “How come Mike cannot die” then I came up with something which is highly unlikely, maybe he cannot die for the same reason William can’t, if Cassidy is keeping William alive what if the crying child is keeping his brother Micheal alive. There isn’t any evidence for this, its just some crazy thought.

    9. muffin tuffin

      i don’t know if you guys saw it but in the word search it said it’s me....

    10. andrew woodward Peace warrior

      Here is a thing that the new security breach does not show who chases you! GLAM ROCK FREDDY!

      1. andrew woodward Peace warrior

        Talking about the new trailer :>

    11. Madison Galbreath

      I feel bad for whoever’s name is Jake and are watching this

    12. Huggo Dv


    13. Sahara Thapa

      cris is the crying cild

    14. Pepe Lagarto

      I think Mrs. Afton's name is clara

    15. vlogger 4 life

      Its probably not right but i think the people who killed the crying child where the original 4 anamatronics because of their masks

    16. Pepe Lagarto

      2:40 save him minigame

    17. DANIEL_R3

      In the image with the grave stones. There is w mystery grave in the background. Why??

    18. Alice Wagner

      The CRYING CHILD LITERALLY HAS HIE BIRTHDAY THERE Micheal afton said fredbear wants a big kiss meaning he didn't want to kill him he didn't know I could tell because would his brother kill him? No hey that was a theroy a game theroy HAHA

    19. FomHax GT

      How long you edit these

    20. ITZ ROBY

      I have exams so I couldn’t watch it the time it released :(

    21. Cinnamon

      Where do I get this book?

    22. Flamingo

      uhhh matpat, in the fnaf security breach gameplay trailer, we see gregory looking into some cameras and he has the same shirt as him, he has the white line on the shirt, and he could be the crying child. THE SILLY FNAF BOOK HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH IT!! He Is Not Evan, He Is Gregory. We Might Also Play As Him Again Because In The Trailer, The Person You Are Playing As In The Trailer Is SUPER SMALL. So There. Make Sure You Make Another Video About This, Or Else, HE WILL DESTROY YOUR SOUL!! ;) (P.S I'm Not Flamingo)

      1. Drow ._.

        i think you was real flamingo but you are fake

    23. D14m0nD Gamer

      I mean his death wasn't really on screen, since we saw it on a mini game instead having it animated by Scott, tbh, Scott should make a FNaF history gallery in Security and Breach when you complete the game and should the minigames should be found as real scenes. Who agrees?

    24. Fresh Memes18

      My Brothers Name is evan😂

    25. Anglerfish

      Mickey mouse eat some cheese

    26. geometry dash plays

      Wait so I was the crying child because my name is Evan

    27. Daijia M.

      I could be wrong but you guys don’t really focus on sister location too much . That’s my favorite one of all of them & everytime I watch my favorite USfilmers play it, it seems as if there’s a point to the game you guys are missing . What if the whole time sister location held LOTS of secrets 😭

    28. andrei farcasanu

      The crying child posses shadow freddy

    29. Ferral Fennin

      this is what happens when someone else besides Matpatt makes a Fnaf theory, he gets all defensive, like an animal trying to assert dominance.

    30. Matthew Galdones

      I worked in fazbear once

    31. Crystal Hayes

      Cries Afon is the name of the crying child

    32. Akira Leelarapin

      At this point I can’t even keep up with this series anymore.

    33. Barylyn Dodge

      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

    34. Alex Nel

      Chris Afton i

    35. Syeda Fatima Asim

      whoa evan -didnt everyone know that the crying childs name is "CHRIS AFTON£ right

      1. Senpao

        How, where is the evidence on it

    36. glitch tale

      It's christ afton

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        No,it's not

    37. AshAttackers

      well, since you didn't check, I will put the interesting part of the description here 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.

    38. James Sellman

      Mario is absolutely a villain, he just "saves the kingdom" for his own selfish ends.

    39. Vibe Officer

      BARACK OBAMA!!!!!!!!!.....think about it????

    40. Adam Adam

      He looks like an Evan.

    41. Hey Now

      This theory sounds plausible.

    42. INSANIACHAN邪悪なキツネ

      Then why not do this with fnaf sister location? In the background I remember this, there’s numbers being said by baby in the background. Then pls someone do that,

    43. Baby Yoda

      Matpatt: I’ve did it I’ve solved fnaf! Reddit: are I sure bout that

    44. Garen Nishanian

      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.

    45. That one gamer

      This messes with the whole timeline You NEED to make a updated fnaf timeline Matt

    46. nothing

      Gacha player bi like : hes naMe Is CHriS

    47. Edward Yohan Fernandez

      Matpat doesnt have any video ideas anymore lol

    48. Myah ;-;

      I watched all of the fnaf theories in 2 weeks....i have too much time on my hands

    49. You Are Entitled to End your life

      "Did Reddit Just solve fnaf" Like before *This is all but temporary*

    50. sanaturnn

      honestly game theory is even helping anymore.

    51. Cece Collins

      Wait i though the name was Chris?? IM CONFUSED

    52. Laiza Ramos Pamias

      i know the crying childs name its chris i think i saw it idk ok :

    53. The Egg

      Alternate Title: *so much FNaF later*

    54. Doctor Vane

      Also the book does say tally up ur score

    55. Christina Elder

      Tell me why the only thing I can think about while watching the intro is “why does he sound like pennywise”😂😂😂

    56. Chloe Cauchon

      Ok Matt it’s time to get ahead on Scott and solve security breach Go Go Go!!!!!!!

    57. Levi with V

      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?

      1. Scott Cotton

        The theory was wrong

    58. Alexis Sharp-edmondson

      It is Chris Afton

    59. MacGamer Media

      2:50 Yeah actually you did, it’s Devon.

    60. Lord _

      Could somehow, SOMEHOW, The crying child (Evan) BE the father of Jake?

    61. SHI

      I am reborn

    62. Ducky_animations Memes

      W a I T Is Cassidy the yellow words saying I Will put you back together?

    63. Mega_Rage124 _

      Was anyone upset he didn’t do the jingle for psychic friend Fred bear😂

    64. Smalls Gamer

      Hey Matpat there's a new trailer for fnaf security breach

    65. vudx

      why would evan be writing in the book though? shouldnt it be the crying child, not his father?

    66. electric josh

      Matpat, this is the 5th year you solved FNAF

    67. ASEAN

      How come Cassidy looks like one of my classmates who bullies me 🤔

    68. Jasper Barley

      I swear to god, the lore is more complicated than the 41st millennium.

    69. kk Ingram

      Springtarp is coming back

    70. Jonnha Lopez

      WAIT the gachas call him chris

    71. Martin Atze Jensen

      Wow, I actually got an ad that was slightly relevant for me. I don't think that has ever happened before.

    72. Sam Wright

      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...

    73. Mister K

      The night guard you play as in fnaf help wanted is vanny because isn’t it suspicious how we suddenly hear vanny speaking when we put on the mask also vanny is the only one with the mask this might be right it might not

    74. Ashley Samaya J.

      Oh my god finally, no more Chris, Norman, and even CC... Finally a name...

    75. Bastian R V

      Crying child's name is Chris

      1. Senpao


    76. Cristopher Gonzalez

      Isn't C.C. real name is Christopher afton

      1. Senpao

        Where is the evidence

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        this is a fanon name

    77. Mylz Whitford

      lets just call him Danial

    78. Yanis Gaming champion

      I think michal because you said the crying child died and that he is in fnaf 6 and 5

    79. Orxy :D

      You know Henry was creating Baby/Elizabeth Afton in fnaf world because he was trying to hide it from you

    80. Kylie Dunbar

      I’m very impressed

    81. Michelle Tremblay

      No the foxy masked guy is not real he is being controlled by William bc he but robot parts in him the masked guy was supposed to scare ze cryin child from animatronics but went to far and accidentally killed him

    82. The Great Shedinja

      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.

    83. Izabella Allen

      I am so ready for the new game and to see your theory on it

    84. Diggo Whoa

      I swear to god is I see "what we missed" on a fnaf thumbnail again...

    85. The short 1

      My name is jay so the start scared me lol

    86. Javiera Silva

      are you going to offer operator varsity jackets again? i want one so baaadly :(

    87. Timothy Stout

      and people think the crying child’s name is Chris but its actually Evan lol

    88. Candice Alvarado

      Theory: remember in the first trailer of security breach and you know how we all saw the moon dude? What if, that was the parts of ballora since she was scooped?

    89. 3D Boy

      I figured out the crying child’s name Ok in Security breach Trailer the second trailer When Gregory is looking at the monitors If you light it up the video There is two stripes The crying child has two stripes on his shirt So he name is Gregory

      1. 3D Boy

        @Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy well your true

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        an interesting theory, but if you take the fact that 30+ years have passed since the bite, then you can understand that it is not true

    90. Blazing Beard

      You know, I'm kinda surprised we never got any game theories about Little Nightmares, specifically its lore

    91. Eric

      A lot of theory’s are so hard to track my brain is scrambling Anybody want eggs

    92. Alani Creer

      i love matpat, but i lowkey feel like this is a miss. I think alot of people are falling into scott cawthons traps :/

    93. JJ Bigs

      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

    94. Jordan Bonner

    95. TitanLand Studios

      Bro, there is a ton of hidden lore in scott cawthons VHS tapes on ScottWorld! I found out that Mangle is an orphan

      1. Scott Cotton

        Scottworld is not Scott’s channel. Check their about page

    96. Thibs

      Is there a place I can read the most "agreed upon" theory of the whole story of FNaf?

    97. DainaTron 2000

      Patiently waiting for your reaction to new security breach trailer

    98. Wackyboss 5

      I didnt know scooby doo was stuck in a cabinet and happens to be an animatronic

    99. Duurma

      I thought the crying child was mike

    100. FnafFacts

      Whaaa i thought c.c was chris afton
