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.

What if at some point the lack of a name is a plot point in a game. He’s got a screwed up brain so him not remembering his own name is something I can see

Ok, so I don't think that this will be seen by Matpat or anything but I have a theory on who Phone-guy is, well, more of just a random thought that popped into my head while watching the Purple-Guy song but you got the point. My thought is that the guy talking on the phone is Henry and that he left recorded messages to warn the Nightguards about the dangers of the pizzerias. I literally have no evidence to support this other than the fact that to me it makes logical sense but I think it is a fun concept none the less and if this ever get a video make about it (which I HIGHLY doubt it will) but if it for some reason does get a video made about it I know that the gametheory team could come up with something! (Love your work by the way, keep it up!)

Idea that I’ve had scene security breach was revealed , what if Jeremy was creating a mask, a rabbit mask like vany. One of glitchtraps requirements seems to be to make a costume. Glitchtrap making Jeremy cut off his own face doesn’t make sense because what’s the point. I know it’s not relevant to this theory but still something to consider.

It seems plausible. Even though security breach is a new story which was said a lot cause you know... Scott likes to toy with us but I have a feel live either in the books or in the new game will either confirm Evan or give us another name, possibly the girl with straight black hair in the logbook

Emma Chota

Matpat I have a theory, i hope you put into consideration. I just watched all the security breach trailers and I just wanna say this. I don't think the crying child is Evan I think he is Gregory from the new fnaf game or is at least a possible friend of Gregory. Here's why, in the trailer there is a scene of a child in front monitors. If you turn the brightness up a little he has a striped shirt, and Vanny/Vanessa calls out Gregory. Another reason is because in another scene Vanny says," I'll put you back to bed". Didn't the crying child is from fnaf four that took place in a bedroom. Another thing I'll let you figure out is take a close look at the security guard for the new game, i hope she will look a little furmiliar.

Theory time for morty ok so I do believe that in the new fnaf game play at the end you see a hand witch you see a purple light and rotten skin/ raisin skin the fingers have pointy fingers made if metal i think because of the rotten skin this may be mike the glowing .ight matches to sl ending he has glowing purple eyes and for the fingers it could be part of the theory ether he's a robot or it resembles what was inside of him before but some might say this is william but that not true william is glitchtrap meaning he would have a soft yellow green suit with round fingers this would prove the theory of each game revolves around micheal a this is just my theory also pleas make a theory on the new game play video thx

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

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.

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.

@i cant think of a name yep

The books and the games are seperate canons, although they are meant to draw parallels between each other (the Fazbear Frights books are intended for that purpose, the Charlie trilogy is not meant to solve lore.)
6A_Jade Paath

The book is for the game lore not really about the age or other like Mike from the book that is still a kid when Mike in the games hes a adult (Sorry Im not good at explaining and my English is bad)

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

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

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

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
