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.

  • GAME THEORIES PLEASE LOOK I HAVE A THEORY Hi hello I have a theory I've been thinking about for a while about Midnight motorist What if Mustard man is Mustard Woman and it's actually Mrs Afton? Now I know you already came to the conclusion that Mustard man is William Afton but the colour change seems a bit random. We know a Mrs Afton must have existed as a known child killer wouldn’t adopt, as well as Michael looking like his father which would only make sense if they were blood related, as well as the existence of Balora, plus due to the graphic novel version of the books we know that William Afton has brown hair, therefore Mrs Afton must have blond hair like her daughter Elizabeth, or a similar mustard colour. Now I know this isn't too significant but bear with me. We know mustard man must be someone who cares about crying child (Evan) and Henry would be a bit strange to just walk into the afton household and get mad at Evan for running away, it would make sense for it to be Evan’s mother. Now we know that mustard man was turned away at Jr’s for POSSIBLY being a previous employee, and while it was possible she worked there due to her husband being the manager, it could also be due to the fact she was most likely a regular as the same point before, and she was turned away because of the missing children incident. She then goes home in her husband’s car to see her eldest son watching TV, then she goes to her youngest son’s room to see he's escaped. She is angry because of the missing children’s incident so she locks him in his room. She later died somehow, thus William creating Balora from his grief, so her husband, William Afton, places extra security as his wife can no longer stop Evan from going to “that place again’. Then psychic friend Fred Bear sounds like Evan’s mother, due to the similar mustard text when he's talking. It could be due to a voice changer or one of the animatronics being able to pretend to be parental figures, I believe it's Funtime Fredbear. This. Is. Why. Evan. Trusts. The. Bear. Because it sounds like his mother! Then at the end when the text colour changes its because its William Afton himself talking but it just sounds like Evan’s mother Now this isn't 100% fleshed out or anything but I’m hoping MatPat will see this and possibly think about it? That’s why I'm writing this and posting it here to see if there’s a chance I could be right. SO MATPAT/GAME THEORIES PLEASE SEE THIS

  • I stayed up all night thinking about this I understand that the people in this video have good guesses but I don’t trust the second one because the crying child can only talk in altered text from the book. If that’s how he can do that the why would he... first off use the magazine but not the text and second why would you use Micheals tallies to find the crying child’s name I just don’t think they fit. I understand why you would think to use the magazine on the foxy grid page because it’s foxy who is holding the magazine but I still don’t understand the tally bit. That is all I have I don’t have anything about how to find the name Also just please ignore me if I’m wrong :]

  • I think crying child is cassidy 👁👄👁 Now let me tell you why I think that maybe crying child is comunicating with.. crying child. Let me explain First of all, what i think i crying child went through all 5 (and more) nights before the bite. I don't know why he would have been sick or needed an infusion. But I think the reason the crying child sees all those nightmare animatronics is this: 1. Michael. We know michael scared crying child. But at first, when he showed us a headless foxy, it wasn't like he was broken. It looks as if it was empty inside, or so I see. Most likely, William set up the station so he could talk to crying child while he was away. And since the only toy that was constantly next to him was that fredbear plush for this reason, most likely Michael took his other toys and gave them to their friends to put their heads on and scare his little brother together. That's how crying child got a fear for the original animatronics (foxy, chica, freddy, bonnie) 2. Trauma. One of the reasons crying child is afraid of animatronics is because of trauma. Most likely it's because of Elizabeth. Probably when crying child entered the room to go to her sister, Baby then killed Elizabeth. And probably because her job at the time was to kill, she couldn't prosecute that another child had entered the room. That's why we see Nightmare Fredbear and Nightmare with teeth around their bellies. Crying child is afraid that he will be eaten by animatronics like his sister was eaten 3. Antibiotics. We can see that crying child has an infusion by his bed. Obviously he was there for a reason. I don't think it was because of the bite, but crying child may have been ill. And antibiotics, especially the strong ones, can affect the brain, especially in boys (I know from personal experience). His combined fear and trauma plus antibiotics resulted in some hallucinations, these being nightmare animatronics Because of antibiotics and probably because of the disease (where he began to lose blood, that's why we may see blood in his notebook), Cassidy began to have memory loss and dizziness. For this reason he began to ask questions of himself in the future, hoping that he would remember Now some of you may say "but if so, why didn't he write from the beginning 'Your name is ...' or what happened to him?". That's because crying child didn't remeber on that moment. He hopes that after everything is over, he will be able to find out again who he is and what is happening This is my theory that Cassidy is actually crying chil, and that all this time the two souls who owned Golden Freddy were actually one.

  • There's something that's been bugging me after watching dawko's interview with Scott. Dawko asked Scott which ending of fnaf 3 really happened, he didn't end up answering it but he did say the answer was 'complex." And that really bugs me because how would that be complex? It's either one ending or the other, right? No. I think there's an answer that nobody has thought of. What if both endings happened? This is just an example but what if sister location followed the events of the good ending and fnaf 2 followed the events of the good ending, it's probably not that specifically but I think it's an option worth considering. It would also explain why the franchise is so complicated lore wise. To quote you yourself "How can William afton be experimenting with remnant if he's sealed in a wall?!"

  • I have a feeling that this after putting all these pieces together and looking in the the survival logbook and fazbear frights blackbird book that the name Evan is going to mean nothing. The only reason I say that is because if crying child died in the bite of 83 and possess Golden Freddy with Cassidy. How is he in the military/army if he is dead? And how could he have a kid if he is dead? But it is very unusual that the fact that Evan says that he has a brother named Michael and looks different, makes me question my thought.
