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.

  • guess im the crying child guys

    • I mean Evan made my childhood

    • EvanTubeGaming huh funny WAIT

    • 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

    • @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

    • who u?

  • Overall, Health, Stress... Mat is that a secret message right there? Nvn: Your covering it.

  • 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.

  • hi i would like to order one security breach trailers analysis video. yes extra fast please. PLEASE.

  • All those fnaf gachas: NO!! His name is chris😭😭😭😭😭😘😘😘😡👍🏻😡👋🏻😡👋🏻😢🤦🏻😭😢👋🏻😭🙎🏻😭😀👋🏻🤦🏻👋🏻😢👍🏻😢

  • Oh poor Matpat... First the mystery name of the crying child... And now the new trailer just came out... Big oof

    • Rest in peace matpats theorising tesm

  • Hmm......! I know i wull sound like a litle kid! But i think you soud do a fortnite teory(it has storyline)

  • One thing i’ve noticed in the log book on page 85 numbers 10 and 11 are *red* maybe put that into the word search to find C.C’s name?

  • Crying child name is probably Chris

  • This whole video was him taking clues other people found and also telling things we already knew

  • i thought the crying Childs name was Chris Afton?

  • “Who had the first on screen death” William: 👁👄👁 wHaT aM i? A rOaCh?

  • I think the only thing the claw can belong to in the new security breach trailer is the stitchwrath

  • I watched till the end wow just wow

  • Uhm so why they ( the fandom) call C.C cris or cristoper

    • 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.

    • But that’s my theory

    • I’m just gonna call him Greg for short but Greg has two lines just like crying child

  • Well many people like to say his name is Chris

  • For all the gacha people who thinks that C.C or "Chirs" or "Norman" is Shadow freddy... My theorie: Shadow freddy is Golden Freddy's Shadow i think-

  • Isn't evan vanosgamings real name

  • Crying child’s name is Chris :)


  • Yooooo you going to do a new video on the new fanf game coming out ????🧐

  • Cassidy is golden freddy Crying child is Shadow freddy shadow freddy is golden freddy :) (i am only about 8 mins in the video)

  • Chris afton is crying child and posses shadow freddy

    • where did you find the connection between C.C. and Shadow Freddy?

  • Cassidy be like: Dear Evan Afton, We’ve been way to out of touch

  • In the new Fnaf Security Breach Trailer, In the Scene where someone is sitting in front of the cameras you can notice their shirt is black with 2 Gray Stripes on the Upper Torso just like the Crying Child's from Fnaf 4

  • Cry child = chris

  • name" oh the cringe it hurts.

  • Was that the bite of 87?

    • New fnaf sb trailer: I’m about to end this mans whole career

  • 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

  • This one is certainly one to think about...

  • The crying child is Gregory.

  • 'About to summarize Blackbird' *no.. you're not getting me this time damnit*

    • For context, I want to read the series myself-

  • my friends always thought it was that evan survived and that he was Mike instead of Michael

  • Even no this is a FNAF video mat pat I have a theory a game theroy about among us the cremates are a always the imposter but one of them is better than the all of them so the other imposters do tasks witch turns them to crewmates

  • You really pretending this is one of the few times you've gone to reddit for theories?

  • I don’t have the logbook but in the book there are a few clues saying that the crying child’s name is Evan afton also that mike mite be the crying child and “foxy bro” is a robot or a kid I think is named Terrence

  • So, who's gonna tell him about FNAF plus?

  • Omg fnaf theories are my childhood

  • when its said game theory i thought it was gonna play the distorted harry potter theme song

  • i swear you folks could solve mysteries the police couldn't solved.....have you all consider working for detectives or something?? jesus...

  • Im still calling C.C C.C, because there is also evidence of 'Evan's' name being Norman so yeah- if Scott confirms any name for C.C then I'll use it

  • But why would "Evan" have a child if he posseses a Golden Freddy and why did in the original book, one of Charlie's friends called him "Mike"?

  • i just noticed who is the owner of the pizza place?

  • New fnaf sb trailer: I’m about to end this mans whole career

  • So I have a theory,security breach gave us a new trailer and in the trailer we see Gregory and he appear's to be wearing "Evan's" shirt so could Gregory also be a name for the crying child

  • Guys I noticed something Evan/crying child is not dead look at the security breach trailer there is a kid in his shirt it’s in the ps4 security breach trailer I think

  • 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.

  • boycott bc i ordered thor wer and i did not get it

  • 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?

  • Fnuf gaming

  • There ya go! Matpat said crying child doesnt have a name so stop caööing him chris

  • in the new trailer for security breach gregory has the same two stripes as the crying child. i think the theory of gregory being the crying child holds up better than the evan theory

  • Ok so I barely noticed this but Phsychic friend fredbear has little white glowing eyes. Golden freddy has one eye that looks the same. Is this more proof that the crying child is one of two souls in golden freddy? But thats just a theory, a game theory!

  • Wait crying child has the same shirt as Gregory

  • i dont think Scott leaves any detail in his work by mistake he clearly thinks out every little detail he writes in those books and in the games he makes.


  • Afton

  • So as we think that glitch trap is aft on

  • Can you play and Theorise on the little nightmares games

  • Hey mat pat I have a theory

  • i don't know but... I'll call him Evan anyways XD

  • Anyone else feels like that "Next Week" at the end of the video was a bit off? Hmmm...

  • I'm confused about the Simon thing but mk

  • i need to check my notifs more, I have 666 notifs for youtube while watching this

  • Get ready for a fnaf security breach theory but hey that’s a theory a theory theory

  • Do a Theory on Little Nightmares 2

  • MatPat : "At this point, forget Security Breach" Scott : I BEG YOU PARDON ?!

  • who else here after the security breach trailer 😅

  • hey matpat guess what fnaf security trailer came out loo

  • Hey um the new secutity breach tralier came out about yesterday and it shows how and you were right saying its like a hide and seek game so you were right. 👏👏. But at the end there was a strange purple had? Does anyone have an idea who it is ?

  • what about scheduling thing from the fastest rights books that was coming from the suit you know what I'm talking about is the faster location but it was from the flip sidefrom that one five nights at Freddy's game I can't remember was called it's a RPG you know what I'm talking about well what about slide from that game

  • Boys security breach trailer mat pat do theory

  • what?! did Mattpat waited for the internet to do the work for him? again?...well thats news to no one

  • I've know im out of topic in here but is there gonna be an Little nightmare and including the part 2 and the secret of the maw theorists cuz i really liked how this game theorists explain it and we easily get it

  • Why do I have to be the creepy doll in the cabinet qwq

  • You need to make a theory of little nightmares 2 and its ending

  • Evan is a cool name

  • I thought that Golden Freddy and FredBear weren't the same characters? ;`;

  • I know is out of no where but we naw know the identity of Alison and Tom from bendy and the ink Machine just look in the books.

  • May pat , let me riddle you this,if the missing children’s incident happen in 1985 then how did phone guy know a bout the vote of 87 if so the phone guy would have had to have been a time traveller

  • His name is Chris afton

    • no its not, chris some stupid name the fnaf fandom made up

  • Guys it’s Gregory you can see by the hair color and the shirt

  • Name is Chris


  • What if the story in blackbird isn't sinister or has any real connection but is actually revealing something we have all had doubts on. In fnaf 4 the foxy is in crying child's closet (just like simon) that can be like an easter egg, but the one that really gets me is the dad talking to his kid through his doll. This could be the answer to the "I will put you back together" quote, maybe scott cawthon is finally telling us who said that line via the books. Hope you like my theory @thegametheorist

  • did y'all see how the person in the new trailer has the same shirt as the crying child?? if you turn up the lighting you could clearly see the two stripes while he's looking at the computer screens (timestamp /0: 51 if you wanna go see it)

  • Matpat, that's the 7th week in a row that you solved FNaF

  • Can you explain dixie kongs hair helicopter flight?


  • Most of the time people call the crying child Chris or Christopher Afton but Evan wow how surprising like completely different from Chris

    • chris is just some dumb name the fandom made up

  • I mean "Evan" sounds more legit than everyone calling him "Chris" for no real reason so like ✨💖

  • gt needs to realse a book so we dont have 2 watch loads of videos lol

  • But Cassidy is crying child

    • @Game Ship ok believe what you want.

    • @soupinfested guy U ARE WRONG BECAUSE HE WAS THE first one to die

    • @Game Ship no its not. cassidy is one of the dead children that william afton killed. crying child on the other hand is williams son. which died from fredbear. gamer 101.

    • @soupinfested guy u are wrong

    • no its not

  • Jake from Statefarm

  • You might want to see the Security Breach trailer. I darkened up an image if you wanna see It has something to do with the crying child

  • MattPat keeps being drawn back into FNAF. "...Every time I think I've theorized it to its limit... They keep throwing me back in. Don't you fans ever get enough of FNAF?! No, of course you don't..." XD

  • LETS GO!
