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.

Hey i have a theory. Although there is alot of similarities between crying child and Evan but the fnaf security breach action figure "Glamrock freddy and Gregory" Gregory looks alike the crying child. Brown hair with black eyes. And this could mean Gregory had his first bad memory of the pizeria here and was scared from the animatrinics.

Matpat, i dont really know if you have adressed this before( yes, I went and looked all the videos) and from what I know, you have never really introduced the idea that maybe the reason why the lore book asks:" do you remember your name" is because Michael( crying child) might have never been his child from the beginning.How come do we not know that the bite of 83 was William Afton's intentions to take away sammy( henry's kid) from him as retribution from baby killing elizabeth? Its possible that William knew about this since Henry's kid, Charlotte was built as a robot and also that different memories could have been faked to say that his name is Michael....It makes sense since him escaping from his place( henry's house) because of William's help.... also, have you noticed that the crying child did not have friends at his supposedly "birthday party"? I will also assume that the one who brought friends and actually had fun at the place was foxy bro....mmmmm sorry if im wrong

Eva... Evan... Could it be, that the crying child is a girl? We had the same problem with "the one you should have not killed". Scot said that it dosent need to be clear from the beginng, it should be know as a little girl or a little boy. So MY theory is that if the crying child is Eva That means that its a GIRL (Ps: Im from poland

In the Security Breach trailer it says “Gregory we’ll find a way to get you out” or something and Gregory was probably the boy in the shot which looks like C.C . I personally think his name is Gregory but that could be aswell.

Either I’m over thinking or what. BUT. The most recent trailer of security breach mentions the boy named “Gregory.” Also notice how the aesthetic of the new game gives off an 80’s vibe if the crying child was the first bite victim in the 80’s does that make this crying child’s name “Gregory” I could be wrong based on the time line and characters. I haven’t done all the research but it hit me weird the time zones at least. It just is a bit weird how security breach looks like the 80’s but the first few games don’t have the same technology as the others. I don’t know 🤷🏻‍♂️

Ok,so mini theory,the tallies r all the nights Michael has survived,before being scooped. He was filling out the book as he went along,maybe while his popcorn was cooking or somtheing,and with the one set of tallies that only has 4 marks,it's at this point where he was scooped,and stuffed with some endo spaghetti,so he wasn't able to "finish" those tallies(note that this includes the games 1-7). Before u say that there was 2 games after that,he just didn't make that last tally because he didn't see it as him finishing the night, ennard was calling the shots so to speak,And yes,I know that this has nothing to do with the crying child's name,but,it's just something that makes sense to me. But,hey,that's just a theory,a game Theory! Please like so matpat might see this

Random theory I have: Micheal afton was some sort of attempt by William to gain immortality. That's why he looks just like him and he can't die. He was either experimented on or created by William. So that he could gain immortality for himself in some way

Hmm. I feel like there's an element missing, but I'm not sure what. But the fact that "Jake's" dad's name is Evan is kinda weird. If the child's name is Evan and his brother is Michael and adult Evan describes Michael (in a way) as his brother, would one of them be fake just like the two Jakes? Just thinking about it kind of makes sense to me. I don't know, what do you think MatPat?
XxMidnightoceanxX Pred 15 urami
Theory! (Please no Hate i’m not sure on this theory to. Also sorry for bad grammar and spelling!) So you all know UCN. Maybe after the fire William was left at the fnaf 6 ruins.Then started to have those nightmares from Cassidy. (UCN) Then MAYBE Fazbear Entertainment was going to all of the previous locations. To take and scan all the remaining circuit boards. Because they are creating a VR game. Fazbear entertainment did say in the intro of Five nights at Freddy’s VR, “we have recreated many of these completely fictitious scenarios(lies) that you've been fed over the last several years, into a hilarious VR Game in the hopes that we can finally move past these childish ghost stories.” Obviously they were trying to cover up what really happened and during the process when they were scanning all the robot circuit boards and import them into the game. They probably came across Scraptrap, and took his Circuit board. In Fazbear frights black bird. During the Stichwraith story, where William was trying to drag Andrew back down with him and not let his soul rest. That showed us that a small part of William was in the robot the Stichwraith. So maybe, parts of William are in different places at once. An example of this is, maybe part of his soul is in Springtrap. Another in Scraptrap. So on. Maybe part of his soul was in that circuit board when Fazbear entertainment took it. That chould explain how William became glichtrap. The last part in the Stichwraith story, Afton became that huge robot field will agony. At the end of the security breach trailer (new one I think.) shows a robotic hand with claws on it but mostly purple. Maybe that in security breach William gets out of Glitchtrap, witht he help of Vanny. He probably got out from different robots filled with agony and soul energy. All being compressed or put together with William mainly in control. That’s probably how that happened. If you want to use the theory PLEASE credit me!! Thanks!
