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.

  • TTV_ToxicBryan

    all right i know that a lot of people probably thought of this, but in the new security breach trailer, Gregory is infront of a bunch of cameras. If you look closely at his shirt you can see 2 grey stripes. And who has those stripes. The crying child. So does the crying child= Gregory?! probably not.

    In the new trailer for FNAF (security breach), we see a child called Gregory. In the shot where we see him, if you turn the brightness up, you can see that the child has the same 2 stripes on his shirt that the crying child has, so what if the crying child is actually named Gregory?

    My theory might be wrong but what if the crying child which is Michael afton lost his soul after he died in the hospital but because the purple guy was able to “rebuild” him he was left to be soul less but alive and the crying child soul was still in golden freddy? Just a thought I had.

    So what if the crying child is the father (Evan) and Michal Afton is also the crying child's brother? The one who terrorized Evan / crying child, however maybe the reason the book isn't cannon is because this is a different dimension where crying child survives the bite or maybe never gets bit at all and instead takes form in HIS child for cheating death?

  • SockNoises

    I know this isn’t the video but I’m targeting the Golden Freddy solved thing and also the “your pain powers us” thing. You said that the animatronics are either possessed by souls OR agony, so then why is Golden Freddy twitching according to all cutscenes? (mainly referencing 9800 cutscene UCN) you also said that there could be more than just 2 souls in Golden Freddy, so what if, just throwing this out here, Golden Freddy isn’t actually twitching, but there is a soul controlling each moving part and they’re just trying to become in sync or something in that category...also, I’m questioning why in FNAF 2 when Golden Freddy jumpscares, there are no eyes (white dots) seen, yet in the 9800 UCN cutscene there are eyes, (white dots) and it’s even more odd since it’s farther away. That I have no possibly explanation for (none with logic at least) but yeah that’s a thing. :>

    I need to ask a question so tell me if this is known how does micheal not express fear infect he acts like he knows what’s going on but how would he infact remember the sister location night where he is in the spring lock suit how does he stay calm or fnaf 1 where he tinkers with the robots how would he now that something was there that shouldn’t be that’s more then the hardware and in the scooper room he could’ve moved out the way but why didn’t he and his message to his father how does he stay calm while expressing that he should be dead how does his psychology work

    Ok, I'm not convinced, but there's enough there that it's not out of the question. If we have theory on how to use the alphabet grid, could someone check what page an would direct you to for an answer to the question? If there's something feasible there, we probably have our solution. If not, back to the drawing board.

  • FnafAfton

    I have a theory but what if Michael was the crying child and his older brother Terrence put him in the head of Fred Bear and like you said the nightmares were just done illusion disk just like as we find a Funtime Freddy making his toy plushies look more real and ballora is Clara and the animatronic was possessed by her soul because of her song she sings was her story and what if the story wasn't Michael's but what if Terrance his older brother was he one who got scooped.

  • alluke24

    I’m never been a fan of horror game or horror story’s. I’ve watched FNAF let’s plays but I never got in to FNAF till I watched my first Game Theory vid on FNAF. I’ve been reading the books... but I’m still to chicken to play the games. That was till I watched the trailer for Security Breach. I’m hell bent on playing this one and it’s thank to you MatPat and the FNAF creator. I have fallen in love with FNAF even if I’ve never played the games... Sorry I’m having a hard time typing this and not getting tears on the keyboard (YES I’M CRYING) The FNAF story and characters helped to inspire a story (for a game or book) I’ve been working on for 9 years (but still working on). So I just want to say Thank you.😊

    Hey I have a theory as well but, if you have seen the security breach trailer, the music seems similar to me, and if you listen the balloras music box the music matches in 0:30 in the new trailer, so maybe security breach is linked with ballora or sister location in a way?

  • Lucas Rand

    My theory: I'm a little onto this one now. is it possible the crying child is actually named after Eddie Van Halen? Im looking at it this way having noticed the striking similarity between Withered Chica and how Angus Young looks on the cover for AC/DCs Powerage. And if you listen to the lyrics of Enter Sandman by Metallica, you may notice some similarities between the events of FNaF IV and the lyrics of the song. is it possible that we need to look in these highly unexpected areas to complete the lore? it may just be my metalhead self speaking, but I can really see the similarities between these things and the series. because if I'm being honest, there have been many unexpected turns in the franchise, so we need to look in places we would never expect, like a genre of music, Classic Rock.
