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.

I think I have a theory. Now, this might be random, but, in the Security breach trailer there is a part where you can hear balloras music playing, and a few people thinks that you hear her music bc ballora, or ennard are going to appear in the new game , but I dont think so. Here’s why We all remember ”fazbears fright book 4 dance with me”. In the end of that story Kasey gives the ballora glasses to the kid she stole them from. And I just found that so random. Why would she give the little kid the glasses when Kasey knew that something (clearly) was wrong with them. Well, we all kinda thought that when ballora were close enough she would be able to kill Kasey (while she was wearing the glasses) but what if the case was that if ballora got to close, she could posses Kasey. Now that might be a random stab, but we have before talked about the fact that glitchtrap/William afton might have a cult made out of people he have possesed. What if he made those glases so kids could get possesed (or something idrk XD) And Fnaf SB is alot about possession. The trailer (kinda) shows that everyone except gr Freddy is going to be possesed and are going to try to kill gregory. And what if ”dance with me” is Also about possession. Its so random I know, but I really think it means something Please like this, cuz it feels important :)

Random mini theories about fnaf: I went back and listened to the voice lines from custom night. In lefty's voice lines he sounds a little like the puppet, but he says to wierd things. He says " there's room for one more" and asks you to "come inside" with him. Another thing I found is that if you go through ALL of mr rambling hippo's lines you find a couple of strange things. It seems as if whoever possesses the purple hippo knew rather person who is inside Orville the elephant in real life. He also wasn't a child, he seemed like and old man for obvious reasons. Also he mentioned a father and his child feeding the ducks bread that killed the ducks, and frozen, dead pigeons. I thought that maybe the dad might have been Afton, but that is kind of a stretch. But it seems like the mediocre melody characters were real people who afton killed, but the hippo and elephant WEREN'T KIDS.

It’s so odd to me how (as of right now) I don’t think anyone tried flipping the letters to get “nave” I mean it is a word as the dictionary tells me: “the central part of a church building, intended to accommodate most of congregation. In traditional Western churches it is rectangular, separated from the chancel by a step or rail, and from adjacent aisles by pillars”. It just seems odd to me how you can flip Evan around and make it into a word. I did absolutely no investigation on this I just flipped it around and searched it. If anyone would like to investigate and get the right answer, atleast give me some credit.

Don't you think that Jake's story may be some sort of alternate timeline thing that showcases what would've happened if "Evan" never died in the Bite Of '83? Maybe that story is trying to show a bittersweet yet haunting ending (Jake's spirit passing on to the Stitchwraith) as some sort of poetic connection. Jake died alone because of his family issues, and "Evan" was killed in '83 due to issues with his brother. Maybe the mention of Jake's uncle Michael was Scott's way of sneakily showing the connection. I'm actually sold on the Crying Child's name being Evan. It means we have all the names of the Afton family: William, Hannah, Michael, Evan, and Elizabeth.

My theory: Crying child is a Matpat expy. He’s constantly crying because his head was crushed by an animatronic, just like Matpat’s mind has been irreversibly altered by this franchise.

Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy
GoldBox made an animation about bite 83, and the names "Terence and Chris" were used there. Since the names were not known at that time, the fandom used these names (the audio was taken from MrCreepypasta's video)

From the new trailer of fnaf I think we are playing is the crying child because Gregory has white lines and guess who does as well that’s right the crying child.

Great theory, I'm still not exactly convinced that there are 2 souls in Golden Freddy, I still think it's just 1, Cassidy Afton, the crying child with short hair

Theory Topic : Security Breach Game Play trailer Go watch the trailer so you can understand The claws at the end of the trailer could be William Afton out of the spring bonnie suit. Why? you ask. Well Since William used a endo skeleton to be forever alive . I got more You might say : But william was sent to hell in the fire of the labyrinth | well in the first trailer we saw a purple thing from a dark corner. That Thing could of been william out of the spring bonnie suit being brought back to life by malhare (aka glitch trap) *B O O M* And thats just a theory. A GAME THEORY

If y’all ever do a little nightmares theory I have a suggestion. Are the main characters (Six in the first game and Mono and Six in the second game) actually the bad guys? They kinda seem to mess up things for everyone around them. Yes, they are trying to save themselves, but they also get in the way of beings who seem to just be doing their jobs or living their lives.

Could the kid in the 6th book be representing the crying child in someway because like the closet thing in the hospital is linked to how the crying child is sick in the Easter eggs of hospital equipment and the closet being the closet in his room? And his dad being off at war could represent his dad never being around. Also what if Cassidy isn’t talking to the crying child?
