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.

There is a connection. From what I’ve heard, the puppet in the book seem to be controlled by some sort of walkytalky, just like in fnaf 4. in a way, both the crying child and the cancer child are both dying. The cancer child from cancer, and the crying child from a bite wound. Maybe there is someone in the fnaf 4 game named Evan. A friend you meet in the minigames you Play before the Night Starts. It seems like there isn’t one, but I feel like it would be worth looking in fnaf4 again? Because strangely enough both the golden Freddy puppet and the ‚evan‘ puppet Try to help in situation with NO good ending. This is my theory

Hey, i watched your videos from the joker (2019) again and I stumbled on something. It may just be a thought and nothing else, but what if everything that happened in the dc universe. Batmans parents dying, bruce Wayne becoming batman and almost killing the joker, robin being turned into the joker at some point, are all just the thoughts and fantasies of the Joker. He finally get’s the spotlight and even kills batman and super man in the comics if i’m correct. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but just shot through my mind. Great vids btw! Keep it up!

The picture of 'Evan' from the part where he I stalking about the book is scary because he has brown hair like.... CC's hair is brown too..... And has a brother that's really strange......? Can someone tell me to stop?! I think the book Evan is actually CC. But how can he be? CC is dead! CALM DOWN!!! Please can someone help me theorise? I am confused. Could Evan (the dad) be CC? I think he can, plus SKFFB said he'd bring him back, so maybe his body works, but when he's asleep he posses Golden Freddy but to make it look like he is still, he got his body to toss and turn? I think this is a good theory, for me. Can anyone agree? Thanks! BYE

Mr matpat im so sorry to disturb but i wanted to share something this may brake all the progress but it just came to me i watch the playstation trailer for security breach not long ago i just cant help thinking that the last weird thing at the end of the trailer is William afton but different dawko describes in the last chapter of blackbird frazbear's fright in the stitch rath story about the the reborn William afton the description describes a bunny figure made out of bits and pieces of animotronics and i just can't help thinking that that is William afton from the game do you think that this could mean that game and book collide please let me know ps im 13 thanks mat pat 😁

Did anyone realize in the happiest day mini game the "crying child" had the golden Freddy mask when you gave him the cake. I'm not sure if I'm correct but didn't that fit as some evidence that he is the other soul in golden Freddy?

(I quickly want to mention that my theories are pretty much just guessing and not backed by any evidence) Can the EVAN mentioned in the Survival handbook even be the Father? Didnt Crying Child die due to the bite of 87 and therefore got passed on to Golden Fredie? A theorie im thinking about is that Crying child didnt actually die but he got mindswapped like Alec in the Shortstories in Fazbear Frights: Fetch. Though we dont know what or who is controlling the bodies of the possesed Kids. I dont know if they still have their actual knowledge or how they behave after the swaps. Perhaps their goal is then to gather more souls for the animatronics and that could be the reason he has the puppet there. To be able to capture Jake's soul. For this theory to work out there are 2 ways i can think of. Either Crying child changes his voice when he talks with margie and actually is still young, or he somehow traveled back in time like Oswald did in Fazbear Frights: Into the pit and therefore became an Adult.

MAT, DID YOU SEE THE NEW SECURITY BREACH TRAILER!? THERE'S BALLORA'S MUSIC IN IT AND EVERYTHING. I'm freaking out, sorry. I'd love to see a theory on this though. The new trailer is so cool! Please watch it and update us on any new theories you might have based on it. Like, why is ballora's theme in the trailer? Is there going to be some connection between sister location and security breach? So many questions on that alone, too many to list. Please make a theory on this, I need answers Mat. ;-;

‘Evan’ Isin’t Very Convincing Scott Is confusing us again + How would a plush connect to a Animatronic? Fredbear + Chris (ALT UNIVERSE) = Golden Freddy (Where Cassidy and ‘Evan’ Shares a Suit) Over The Games; 2,3,6. (in 6 they must be hiding) and UCN but its just a “Evan is CC and nothing else” “Evan is CC and Bite Victim and Top Theoreist of the FNaF Peradise, - BIN” FLB

My theory is mike is the crying child and the nightmares used to attacked mike then the nightmares felt bad then chris comes in. Mike is bullying chris cuse mike does not get much love so mike got abused by william or his father then chris comes in mikes room and the nightmares thout chris is replacing mike and the nightmares also thout chris is the couse of mike's bad life so the nightmares tries to attack chris in the night then the crying child name is passed to chris.. So thats my theory..

Guys I found the fnaf 4 lore I THINK. Here is my fnaf 4 mini theory. The crying child Is being manipulated by his golden Freddy plush. He wants the crying child to think that all the animatronics are bad and that he's the only good one. the way he made these animatronics in the child's mind is by using the illusion disc. And you may be thinking oh if this is an illusion that out then how come the child dies after being caught by one? see on the side of the bed he's in medical treatment. I think that means you can't really see anything scary cos he has like anxiety and I think he might get a heart attack or something and die. that is all I can explain. I'll try and give you the lore of nightmare but cos it's just been really hard and stressful, but if you can reply to this with the lore of nightmare before I'm able to update this then congrats, and like I said finding the lore of nightmare has been extremely stressful and hard, but I think that nightmare is golden Freddy's spirit. As you can see has a golden top hat and a golden bow tie. That's all I can say for now I don't really have more info.

They have the same shirt...the same strips the same color of the crying child and gregory. The same type of pants... everything

Um... Matpat... One thing that has always bothered me when you talk about FNAF 4. When you say that is the bite of 83 based only on the TV ad/show. I think that was just the way Scott had to show when the main characters in the Fazbear franchise were created, that would be in that show. And...As you yourself said it, scott teased '87' in his site before releasing the 4th game. And the 'Was it me?' images... What for?... The 4th game is set in 87, man.
