    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.

    1. EvanTubeGaming

      guess im the crying child guys

      1. J night


      2. Top Knotch

        I mean Evan made my childhood

      3. Train guy 1 A

        EvanTubeGaming huh funny WAIT

      4. Bettina Sherwood

        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

      5. Bettina Sherwood

        @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

    2. Umbreon Gurl

      Ok, I have a serious question. Am I the only who heard that Crying Child's name is Chris? If anyone has heard this, please tell me why it's a theory. I need to know the theory

    3. fingerstyle for JESUS

      Jesus loves you all😇

    4. Ab Cd

      And here I am wondering why Freddy fazbear is the most irrelevant animatronic in fnaf

    5. Dj Waltzz

      maybe we draw 8bit foxy and check his mouth:)

    6. 204 Shadow

      weird thought. what if that's the crying child in security breach?????????? just a random child I guess, because he's dead anyway lol

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        more than 30 years have passed since the bite, so you're right about his death

    7. ThatRandomNoah

      If FNAF's lore and story EVER get a fully fleshed out timeline explaining everything.... Matpat, trust me, you should definitely make a final video that explains it from the beginning to the end. Because good god I think half of us who watch these videos have no idea what's even going on anymore.

    8. Ryah the panda

      Poor Balloon boy and balloon girl :(

    9. Nur Qaisara Najla Mohd Redza Azhab

      crying child real name chris Afton possess shadow freddy

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        no, no, no no "Chris" is a fanon name, and where did you find the connection between Shadow Freddy and C.C.?

    10. Downbubbles2

      2:30 well yes Matpat, but.... you forgot this. *Whats the name of William’s wife?*

    11. King Dragon

      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


      I thought the crying Child name was Chris

    13. Darkshade

      I think you should do another fnaf timeline because A LOT changes since the last timeline video you did.

    14. umak71

      wait he said open the cabnet jake but why did he need jake to open the cabnet because he can already open it because the cabnet opens, Hey but thats just a theory a game theory

    15. Ayendy Salcedo

      No cap the song he sang sound like mandjtvs meme review into

      1. Ayendy Salcedo


    16. Lexi Montoya

      are you going to make a video about the new fnaf trailer for security breach

    17. SideChat Sideshow

      I don't know if it was intentional or not but in the first minute of this video Mat sounded exactly like Pennywise in IT 2 when he's luring in that little girl he eats 🤣

    18. Alejandro Superstar

      mat pat what exactly are the glamroock animatronic because I found some evidence from the new trailer the the glamroocks are funtime animatronic

    19. Jet's Multiverse

      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!)

    20. Hyde

      Five nights at freddy's

    21. death ganger

      Wasn’t there a file in fnaf 4 of his name I remember watching a video about his name

    22. Phacey Omni

      So "Even" we finally have his name.

    23. Brandie

      his name is criss

      1. Smile.69.mp4

        His name is not chris

      2. 6A_Jade Paath

        Chris is a fanmade name

    24. Local someone

      FNaF fandom watching this like: 👁️💧👄💧👁️

    25. Wolf Warrior Air100

      I think I'm definitely sold on Evan being the crying child's name

    26. Sharita Patterson

      So there is no chris afton ?

      1. 6A_Jade Paath

        Yeah that name is fanmade

    27. Omega bacon

      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.

    28. VibingVince

      Matpat, Christopher Afton is crying child.

      1. Smile.69.mp4


      2. 6A_Jade Paath

        No Chris is a fanmade name dumby

    29. Bacon Gamer

      i guess he is afton's son michael

    30. Caleb Fitzgerald

      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

    31. Djrocktv 1

      I think crying child's Christoper Afton but for short just Chris

      1. 6A_Jade Paath

        No Chris is a fanmade name

    32. Eden England

      tfw matpat tries to say that his terrible hollow knight theory was intentionally wrong -_-

    33. gaming guy

      I thought crying child is Micheal

    34. emma gordon


    35. Not Laylah

      This will be the last fnaf video on the channel

    36. meteverz15

      I forget about the theory that crying child is possessing shadow freddy and name chris

    37. 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.

    38. Random Guy

      What if Scott didn’t name the crying child and now he’s gonna see this and name him Evan Lol

    39. peach_ fox

      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

    40. Sofia Rojas

      There is a new trailer, sir, SiR, PlEase, PlEAsE COVEr It D:

    41. F34R LIONN 2

      0:19 ayo?

    42. Squirrel Warlord

      Flowey? Why are you opening a fnaf video get back to your own game

    43. Tenya Iida

      Im not sure but i think hiis name is "Chris"

      1. Tenya Iida

        @6A_Jade Paath i know and i like it so its my theory

      2. 6A_Jade Paath

        Chris is a fanmade name

    44. Ollie-pop M

      The crying child's name is actually is chris trust me please.

      1. 6A_Jade Paath

        No CHRIS is a FANMADE NAME

    45. TheReal CryingChild


    46. Jazon

      i feel like at this point even Scott has zero clues on wtf is going on

    47. Shanea Green

      Lol this is all wrong crying child’s name is cross aften it says it on the bite of 83 yall look realy dum

      1. 6A_Jade Paath

        @Shanea Green Chris is a fanmade name idiot

      2. Shanea Green

        Cris I meant

    48. izuku midoriya

      His name is chris afton

      1. 6A_Jade Paath

        Chris is a fanmade name

    49. Steve F

      The crying child’s name is Steve. Check again.

    50. Tobekers

      You haven't really looked at fnaf 3 to much?

    51. Tobekers

      Did you ever think that blue and red make purple and purple guy can be mad and sad

    52. Tobekers

      Can you put the numbers from the mini game in fnaf?

    53. The one emo kid in the back Onyx

      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

    54. Tims X

      I think those in-game Scott's games, mentioned in fnaf VR, are the secret minigames in fnaf games, like Mangle's quest and give life.

    55. Alexia Fudge

      I think crying child's name is Chris (just guessing)

    56. Alexia Fudge


    57. Exposur3ツ

      You know my names Jake and that intro Is just horrifying

    58. Chunkens

      Maybe his name is eva and begame transgender

    59. Fulvia Gomez

      so 1 it was mike now it Evan irony get it

    60. Marc Bou Saleh

      This got boring honestly

    61. Zero898

      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.

    62. Chris Ortiz

      you were in random encounters song

    63. Chris Ortiz

      Do you guys remember when he was in a song in Freddy Fazbear's baby I love you

    64. Caleb Sanders

      1. Caleb Sanders

    65. Chaos VxOv

      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.

      1. 6A_Jade Paath

        @i cant think of a name yep

      2. i cant think of a name

        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.)

      3. 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)

    66. AngerOwl29

      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

    67. FarrellWolf

      Matt your forgetting that we are talking about the serious game that had us put a number into a wall, so I don't think its a stretch at all.

    68. something original

      Matpat:*has been trying to solve fnaf for years now* Reddit:*supposedly solves fnaf Matpat:*visible Anger*

    69. good boi

      When the closet opened in the black i saw fnad 1 golden freddie junpscare

      1. good boi


    70. Soul

      Hey can anyone explain this to me why does Micheal have the memorys of Elizabeth's voice lines was he there when she was asking William? I'm really confused

    71. Samantha Trujillo

      it's c.c

    72. Litzamary Benítez

      Evan could be the criyng child

    73. Anita Paniagua

      The binding of the crying child

    74. Daisy Lewis-Gist

      a new fnaf Comercial came out like 6 days ago and it said the name Gregory Idk if this is important but the security officer is a female and not one of the aftons

    75. nyctophiliq

      cc your name is evan :)

    76. Gage Ebert

      I have no words

    77. Gage Ebert


    78. TyrantBoi09

      Dude idk why but everytime i watch a fnaf theory i get goosebumps.

    79. Malik Narayanin

      We need a full recap of the lore, Mat. most of us can't keep up with all the changes and updates to the lore.

    80. K.R.J random channel

      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

    81. Henry games

      13:32 and why is this surprising I’m just saying like there is billions of people and who knows how many people are named Evan but..

    82. jade espinal

      with the gacha i have been watching,his name is chris

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        @6A_Jade Paath I agree but,I believe in "MikeBully"or are you talking about the name "chris"?

      2. 6A_Jade Paath

        @Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy even doe Im a gachatuber but i think the people who believe chrisvictim is dum

      3. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        lol, do you really think the gacha has the correct canon?

      4. 6A_Jade Paath

        Chris is a fanmade name the fans have to crying child his name is Evan now

      5. 6A_Jade Paath

        GACHA IS NOT SCOTT CAWTHON (Also if your going to say that google said his name is Chris Google is not Scott either google is not always right)

    83. Henry games

      For a second I thought his name was Eva lol

    84. Henry games

      Evan afton.. has a nice ring to it

    85. Love- Unicorn

      One theory is that the crying child is name Chirs lol might not true

    86. Eri Chan

      Everyone: WHO IS DA CRYING CHILD? Gacha community: Chris, duh.

    87. Brooken_VOID

      do security breech plz

    88. Alexandru Dumitru

      New throri. Loock at the trailer and you will see spring trap animatronic parts and dere are burnd. vany tries to pice wiliam afton back thogeter


      It's a stretch and you have to close your eyes hear and there but it dose make sense and would make the story of the black bird revelent so I am sold

    90. Jake Mahaffy

      Dude I start the video and he’s screaming my name over and over super creepy🤣

    91. Jaycen Taylor

      the 7th fazbear frights book is out now :)

      1. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        hi, can i ask you something?

    92. Bubbly Llama

      MatPat can u do a recap video😭

    93. Scarlett Frye Hall

      C.C Or the crrying child name is sopposed to be Chris

      1. Warcrime Klee

        You have a Gacha life pfp of course you would say that

      2. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

        no, this is not a canon name. Please do not spread false information

    94. Luke Carlson

      By the way, I want the next channel to be book theory

    95. Cuyo Historiador

      We need this people in the police department for solving crimes

      1. Cuyo Historiador

        @Charming nowhere to hide what answer? I was just saying that this kind Is solving and logic would ve very useful in real crimes.... Maybe

      2. Charming nowhere to hide

        fnaf is based on a true story, figure out the true story then you'll have your answer

    96. cartoon play

      do you know that golden freddy is a ghost ?

      1. Charming nowhere to hide

        I’m not certain about Evan, but I am certain that this title crossed the clickbait line. Come on, Matpat.

    97. cryin chile

      What if gregory is the crying child I mean the plushie said "I will put you back together" and what if gregory is a robot that is luring afton to his death

      1. cryin chile

        @Warcrime Klee Ik but what if he got put back together as a robot like charlie in the book series

      2. Warcrime Klee

        Gregory is completely unrelated to the bite victim Bite victim died over 40 or 50 years ago

    98. 22wwddews Sup

      It’s Gregory that’s his name

    99. Stavros Petro

      I thought "why when you use in unc the death coin on golden freddy you get jumpscared by fredbear" after Mat's theory that he found that golden freddy has two souls I thought "If the crying child got killed by fredbear that means you get jumpscared by the crying child not by Cassidy"

    100. AntiTeo Sensai

      At this point I think the books are just telling the same story , but in a alternate universe , but most of the events play out the same
