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.

  • 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

  • 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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I feel that the name "Evan" goes along with the crying child's name very well but we have to think about the con's of this theory, now the evidence about the Jake story is heavily helpful in a way seeing that Jake's father name is Evan and he has a brother named Michael, but we also have to think about Jake's father more, if he is the crying child in a different universe then that would throw everything and I mean everything we've learned so far except from Scott's proven evidence out of the window. My first reason for saying this is that if it somehow does have something to due with all the evidence it would be illogical, I say this because how could the crying child be in the military if he literally has the front part of he's brain chomped off I mean you couldn't say surgery because how would they be able to attach all those nerves together again, also why would the military recruit someone with that serious of an injury without first having heavy precautions that would be set. That's just what i came up with for right now and im heavily sure there are many whole's in this Con theory but this is just something i came up with watching this video but pretty solid evidence i can't wait for for the next video. 😄
