    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.

    1. EvanTubeGaming

      guess im the crying child guys

      1. J night


      2. Top Knotch

        I mean Evan made my childhood

      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. Steve F

      The crying child’s name is Steve. Check again.

    3. Tobekers

      You haven't really looked at fnaf 3 to much?

    4. Tobekers

      Did you ever think that blue and red make purple and purple guy can be mad and sad

    5. Tobekers

      Can you put the numbers from the mini game in fnaf?

    6. The one emo kid in the back Onyx

      Hi recently I’ve been watching your fnaf theory videos and you go into detail about the purple telephone a lot saying how it was something the two afton sons would be aware of but there’s something that you didn’t mention or did in a earlier video but wouldn’t that give you also the answer to who the phone guy is

    7. Tims X

      I think those in-game Scott's games, mentioned in fnaf VR, are the secret minigames in fnaf games, like Mangle's quest and give life.

    8. Alexia Fudge

      I think crying child's name is Chris (just guessing)

    9. Alexia Fudge


    10. Exposur3ツ

      You know my names Jake and that intro Is just horrifying

    11. Chunkens

      Maybe his name is eva and begame transgender

    12. Fulvia Gomez

      so 1 it was mike now it Evan irony get it

    13. Marc Bou Saleh

      This got boring honestly

    14. Zero898

      Yo Matpat could Maria Rodriguez from step closer be Cassidy's older sister before you guys come at me saying that's an awful theory just hear me out. Maria is a girl who is Pete's age who we know is the counterpart of Michael Afton (foxybro) and She has black hair and lips that were glossy red. She also has bright green eyes with long eyelashes and a few freckles on her nose and who also is an older sister to her younger sister. And we know that Cassidy has black hair as well and she is most likely Evan Afton's age or at least near to his age (crying child's name not 100% confirmed) so could it be that maria is Cassidy's older sister and that Cassidy's full name is Cassidy Rodriguez. Obviously this is just a theory a game theory! But it could be true you never know.

    15. Chris Ortiz

      you were in random encounters song

    16. Chris Ortiz

      Do you guys remember when he was in a song in Freddy Fazbear's baby I love you

    17. Caleb Sanders

    18. Chaos VxOv

      His name cant be Evan. In the book Evan is a grown man and in the games the crying child/(Evan?) died due to the bite.

    19. AngerOwl29

      Why did i think his name was Jake this entire time? Who even is Jake? Anyway I'm still convinced that Scott doesn't actually have the story planned, he just adds tidbits of random stuff for the fans to "decode" and uses what he likes best to create more lore

    20. FarrellWolf

      Matt your forgetting that we are talking about the serious game that had us put a number into a wall, so I don't think its a stretch at all.

    21. something original

      Matpat:*has been trying to solve fnaf for years now* Reddit:*supposedly solves fnaf Matpat:*visible Anger*

    22. Lior Mozes

      When the closet opened in the black i saw fnad 1 golden freddie junpscare

      1. Lior Mozes


    23. Soul

      Hey can anyone explain this to me why does Micheal have the memorys of Elizabeth's voice lines was he there when she was asking William? I'm really confused

    24. Samantha Trujillo

      it's c.c

    25. Litzamary Benítez

      Evan could be the criyng child

    26. Anita Paniagua

      The binding of the crying child

    27. Daisy Lewis-Gist

      a new fnaf Comercial came out like 6 days ago and it said the name Gregory Idk if this is important but the security officer is a female and not one of the aftons

    28. nyctophiliq

      cc your name is evan :)

    29. Gage Ebert

      I have no words

    30. Gage Ebert


    31. TyrantBoi09

      Dude idk why but everytime i watch a fnaf theory i get goosebumps.

    32. Malik Narayanin

      We need a full recap of the lore, Mat. most of us can't keep up with all the changes and updates to the lore.

    33. K.R.J random channel

      So, black bird is a same story, different version sort of thing? Also, my Theory is that golden Freddy isn't the only shared animatronic I think there is 2 soals in circus baby, as one minute she wants to help, next she kidnapped you, perhaps the green eyed girl from fnaf 4

    34. Henry games

      13:32 and why is this surprising I’m just saying like there is billions of people and who knows how many people are named Evan but..

    35. jade espinal

      with the gacha i have been watching,his name is chris

    36. Henry games

      For a second I thought his name was Eva lol

    37. Henry games

      Evan afton.. has a nice ring to it

    38. Love- Unicorn

      One theory is that the crying child is name Chirs lol might not true

    39. Eri Chan

      Everyone: WHO IS DA CRYING CHILD? Gacha community: Chris, duh.

    40. Brooken_VOID

      do security breech plz

    41. Alexandru Dumitru

      New throri. Loock at the trailer and you will see spring trap animatronic parts and dere are burnd. vany tries to pice wiliam afton back thogeter


      It's a stretch and you have to close your eyes hear and there but it dose make sense and would make the story of the black bird revelent so I am sold

    43. Jake Mahaffy

      Dude I start the video and he’s screaming my name over and over super creepy🤣

    44. Jaycen Taylor

      the 7th fazbear frights book is out now :)

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        hi, can i ask you something?

    45. Bubbly Llama

      MatPat can u do a recap video😭

    46. Scarlett Frye Hall

      C.C Or the crrying child name is sopposed to be Chris

      1. Warcrime Klee

        You have a Gacha life pfp of course you would say that

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        no, this is not a canon name. Please do not spread false information

    47. Luke Carlson

      By the way, I want the next channel to be book theory

    48. Cuyo Historiador

      We need this people in the police department for solving crimes

      1. Cuyo Historiador

        @Charming nowhere to hide what answer? I was just saying that this kind Is solving and logic would ve very useful in real crimes.... Maybe

      2. Charming nowhere to hide

        fnaf is based on a true story, figure out the true story then you'll have your answer

    49. cartoon play

      do you know that golden freddy is a ghost ?

      1. Charming nowhere to hide

        I’m not certain about Evan, but I am certain that this title crossed the clickbait line. Come on, Matpat.

    50. cryin chile

      What if gregory is the crying child I mean the plushie said "I will put you back together" and what if gregory is a robot that is luring afton to his death

      1. cryin chile

        @Warcrime Klee Ik but what if he got put back together as a robot like charlie in the book series

      2. Warcrime Klee

        Gregory is completely unrelated to the bite victim Bite victim died over 40 or 50 years ago

    51. 22wwddews Sup

      It’s Gregory that’s his name

    52. Stavros Petro

      I thought "why when you use in unc the death coin on golden freddy you get jumpscared by fredbear" after Mat's theory that he found that golden freddy has two souls I thought "If the crying child got killed by fredbear that means you get jumpscared by the crying child not by Cassidy"

    53. AntiTeo Sensai

      At this point I think the books are just telling the same story , but in a alternate universe , but most of the events play out the same

    54. Aimee O'Brien

      Theory of mine: GlitchTrap is posessing Vanny and her eyes flow red Vanny is controlling the others but not Glamrock freddy since his eyes aren't red so he is helping Gregory (Who we play as) To escape or survive Vansessa who is probably Vanny can't control herself so she switches from time to time to confuse Gregory so The other animatronics follow Vanny or Glitchtraps command thats why MontGomory Gator said that because Glitchtrap made him say that when they catch gregory they will bring it to Vanny so Vanny can give it to glitch trap to kill and most obviously stuff into another suit. (If you steal this make sure to Credit me for making it!) UHM THIS IS A SECURITY BREACH THOERY MADE BY ME

    55. Joy JohnsonI3lu

      *O P E N T H E C A B I N E T , J A K E*

    56. PARA LACI

      no hes neme is chris ok

      1. Warcrime Klee

        Chris is a stupid fanmade name

    57. Calleighs fnaf corner

      I’m confused because everyone keeps saying “the crying child’s name is Christopher afton” but it doesn’t make sense

      1. Warcrime Klee

        Chris is nothing more than a stupid fanmade names

    58. Isaac YoUTuBe aNTi123

      CC name is Chris dum dum

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        "Chris" is a fan-made name dum dum

    59. Le renard orange mais pas roux

      Imagine if ballon boy was the awnser to fnaf

    60. Channing Pennartz

      i searched it and it said chris afton

    61. a Thing

      I made a little mini theory of my own if you want ultimate custom night and jump scared by or if you even can jump scare you the voices of him will be Henry Mike help have you considered that that was William Afton in hell crying for help think about it we know that Mike is William Afton son and Henry is his work partner so it makes sense if William Afton is old man consequences stuck in HE double hockey sticks or in some kind of a bit video game or some torture by the one you should not have killed I have full evidence it’s a literally everywhere to the screams of help you wouldn’t said it yourself William Afton is like Separated so technically that could be a piece of William Afton stuck in some kind of video game or torture or whatever for naff can give us so that’s my little mini theory

    62. Smartboi87

      Dude how long have you been at this for?

    63. hyphae

      but that would mean that C.C survived the bite if he had a son-

    64. Matt

      I’m not certain about Evan, but I am certain that this title crossed the clickbait line. Come on, Matpat.

    65. Foreign

      fnaf is based on a true story, figure out the true story then you'll have your answer

    66. Mochi Who

      I feel that the name "Evan" goes along with the crying child's name very well but we have to think about the con's of this theory, now the evidence about the Jake story is heavily helpful in a way seeing that Jake's father name is Evan and he has a brother named Michael, but we also have to think about Jake's father more, if he is the crying child in a different universe then that would throw everything and I mean everything we've learned so far except from Scott's proven evidence out of the window. My first reason for saying this is that if it somehow does have something to due with all the evidence it would be illogical, I say this because how could the crying child be in the military if he literally has the front part of he's brain chomped off I mean you couldn't say surgery because how would they be able to attach all those nerves together again, also why would the military recruit someone with that serious of an injury without first having heavy precautions that would be set. That's just what i came up with for right now and im heavily sure there are many whole's in this Con theory but this is just something i came up with watching this video but pretty solid evidence i can't wait for for the next video. 😄

    67. Undo 001

      2:07 Relatable

    68. Vusumuzi Ncube

      Hers a theory. So Micheal has an older brother which died named Terrance Afton. So if you go to the place where most FNAF videos are made which is Gacha club, the story consists mostly on micheal. Now the theory the reason why micheal bullied CC with the FOXY mask was to tell him secratly that MICHEAL is NIGHTMARE FOXY. this has a connection with his dead brother.

      1. Vusumuzi Ncube

        Thanks for the information

      2. Vusumuzi Ncube


      3. Warcrime Klee

        @Vusumuzi Ncube Thats only fanmade Nowhere in fnaf the name terrence exists

      4. Vusumuzi Ncube

        OK so I did a quick surch which is Micheal is Terrance. Full name MICHAEL TERRANCE AFTON. but I don't think it's official

      5. Warcrime Klee

        Ew gacha life Get out

    69. Shark Shrek

      Matpat you made a mistake for the ultimate custom night theory and it was including what nightmarionne said even tho she isn't canon

    70. Charlotte Wade

      Its crish

    71. Cadence Perkins

      Fazbear frights 7 came out I think

    72. 3.0L TFSI Supercharged DOHC V-6

      dude i think you can just assume the answer to anything involving solving fnaf is 'no they didnt' now

    73. FNAF GAMER 1987

      Isn't golden Freddy still alive?

    74. Lextra

      have you ever considered that golden freddy is fredbear, 'cause if you use the death coin on him in ultimate custom night you get jumpscared by fredbear?

    75. Karleigh Chelf

      Ok, so I have this theory. Basically, William only wanted daughters. So when Mike was born, William was upset since he wanted a daughter. He decided to torment Mike for the rest of his life. Then Elizabeth was born. William was so happy he made her a whole robot (but William being William had to make it a murder machine) So eventually William wanted another daughter, so when Crying Child was born William just completely snapped, and made the Nightmare animatronics to torment him. And William went so insane that he built a whole fake version of his own house. And every night William would take the poor cyring child to that place. That's really it. I know it's all over the place but I could be on to something I don't know.


      when the gacha says C.C OR EVAN'S name is CHRIS:

    77. Laurent Morel-à-l'Huissier

      This is cool

    78. Stephens gaming clips


    79. Aza Adama

      Crying child name is Christopher/chris

      1. Warcrime Klee


    80. Dab Squad Leader

      Uh Matt, I’m not sure if you knew but the name of Jake’s father in Blackbird is Evan. I don’t think that’s a coincidence

    81. krisp

      Can mat like make a 78 hour long fnaf theory recap vid

    82. Dante Von Crowlley

      *Can they solve Fate universe?*

    83. mr fastlane

      Look carefully at the sercurty breach trailer

    84. AlicetheNeko

      Hey MatPat, I took a look at the most recent image on Scott's website and upon closer inspection, there is something shown on the bottom right-hand tv screen. I'm not exactly sure what it looks like, but it could be some sort of face looking directly at the camera which could be referring to security tv screens. That could possibly confirm that it is in a mall and if it is a face, it could be Glitchtrap overlooking Vanny. I know that may be a stretch, but it could be possible. There was something on the left side of the tv screen, that if you look very closely, resembles an eye. Something is telling me, whatever is showing on that screen could be important. Not to mention, in a few other screens, there's a purplish color, specifically on the tv screen to the left. Another thing, looking at the conversation and those last two lines "have you selected one?" and "I have." could be hinting towards the possibility that Vanny has chosen a victim and that victim is Gregory. I think the second Security Breach trailer made that clear. I may be reading too much into this, but it's something for you to think on.

    85. SpaceBro

      Little Nightmares 2 theory?

    86. Terrax Gaming

      It's been so long since I quit the fnaf fandom, that I forgot every theory video that I've ever watched so far, I dunno who this Charlie, Elizabeth people are. Oh well, guess I gotta start all over again

    87. Mackenzie Woloschuk

      Well,time to mess with my headcanons again-

    88. Roon Lin

      The crying child is named Chris

    89. Xinyu Tiew

      MATPAT MATPAT THIS IS an EMERGENCY If u seen the trailer for fnaf security breach u might know what im talking about. I think i just solve something!!!!! at a scene where u can see a creepy hand on the ground behind a cabinet(i think its a cabinet) I think i know who's hand is that ITS WILLIAM, here are the reasons: 1.the sharp claws are springtrap's claws because when the fire started and fazbears u can see most of the animatronics have sharp claw example scrap baby and u know that William is springtrap and he has been through to FIRE AND HE BECOME PENUT HEAD!!!! 2. As u can see closely, the arms are purple and my theory is, when i the minigames u can see William becoming more and more purple same goes as Micheal and u know that micheal afton is rottening, so william must me rottening to right? PLEASE DO A VIDEO ABOUT THIS IM VERY CONFIDENT WITH MY THEORY thanks for everything matpat

    90. Zero Null

      So dumb theory the struggling Golden Freddy we see at the end of UCN is the Crying Child and Cassidy fighting over control for the golden Freddy?

    96. Jaime D

      Hey MatPat! Long time fan here! Just wanna ask you a quick question - one of my favorite FNAF videos GT made was the one about the original book trilogy possibly revealing that the crying child, the house in FNAF 4, and the mustard man are not Afton, but Emily (with mustard man being Henry, not William, and Michael being Henry's son), but I noticed that moving forward you went back to calling Michael "Michael Afton" and the crying child as William's son. I guess I found it oddly inconsistent of you. Just wanna know which one are we supposed to stick with in your theories now? Ngl I'm definitely in the Emily camp, but I wanna hear it from you :) cheers!

    97. The King 72
