Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ►
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.

    • who u?

  • Can you do one video on Vaorant lore pls!

  • Very nice

  • Little nightmare ?

  • Can’t we just go back to when the theory was phone guy was purple guy because it looked like he was holding a phone?


  • It's actually john cena all along

  • Can you do little nightmares next?

  • bruh as a guy called Jake that beginning proper freaked me out

  • Ah reddit the usual solving the unsolvable

  • if the kid on the book and the crying child so the same ' why not call the crying child to - jake?

  • how is the gaster theory complete? how did he talk to sans when he is sans?

  • Who remembers when he used to post Blood Brothers songs? Me

  • 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

  • You need to play

  • Duuuuuuuuude hes genious he knows the crying child name is evan?!?!?!

  • Crying childs names name is chris

  • MatPat and his box. Still on What's in the box is either the agony body or soul of Charlie. This is proved in Silver Eyes. Where Charlie dreams of being in inside the box. (Beginning of the book, where she had a nightmare she was trapped and everytime she tried to reach out she met the edges and transitioned around the edges.


  • Is it just me or cassidy's face creeps me out.

  • this is tyhe best video ives ever awtache.d hnehe\

  • Hey Matpat have you seen that easter egg in ballora gallery

  • Congrats on trending!



  • I would love to be sold for this theory but I always had to doubt it first just in case it had something more. Something deeper than what we see

  • I swear to god from now on I'm just gonna say Henry's last name is "no last name given"

  • Mat pat have you seen the sister location Easter egg in ballora gallery

  • imagine scott cawthon be like : write that down.. write that down..

  • On your next video can you make a theory on little nightmares to and why six betrays you

  • Here we go again.

  • For the love of God. STOP.

  • The crying child’s name is chis afton

  • why is the editing of these things so creepy bruh

  • Caring kids name is is is is even after

  • I know that this isn't really related to the topic here but I would like to have a theory on little nightmares, especially on the story aspects of it. Now there are many theories in the internet about the story but I would love to see your opinions on it.

  • But he said that he only had 3 page numbers. It could possibly be the name "Eva."

  • I like chris afton more than Evan afton. :/

  • I have a friend named evan so does that mean he's the crying child??

  • He didn’t sing the Fred Bear theme song.... *He didn’t sing the Fred Bear theme song*

  • Hey MatPat! You could fullfill your logo by making a new channel called "The Toy Theorists" or something. Just a suggestion.

  • "FNAF solved!!" Me: *sips tea* ..... Uh huh.

  • Wait, then this means.. You guys thinking what im thinking?

  • C.c

  • We all know that crying child or cc is Christopher Henry afton

  • 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 :]

  • Theory William Afton had an other child

  • Uh- yo- I love how scott just ruins the fnaf fandoms dreams by calling our lovely, murderous purple blob Vincent. Ugh. William. And now we're gonna crush out own dreams by accidentally solving our lil crybaby over here, Chris. Evan-


  • Random thing but I feel like the foxy pages are relevant to finding his name because Michael was wearing a foxy mask to scare him? Idk, just a small stretch ig


  • I saw in Google is said he's name is norman

  • I wish he would make a theory on the little nightmares games

  • You aren't allowed to play with lore. You are my bible for Minecraft & FNAF

  • game theory you herd about fortnite x fnaf is a huge thing becos pepol actualy found in fortnite fiel FOXY FOOSTEPS so is realy posibel like epic games to colaborate with the number 1 game on steam section horror?? make a theory about it end tell us wath you think i think this wi ldestroy the valve VS epic games

  • But its a game

  • It’s chistopher

    • There is no proof, no source, no canon element to prove that his name is Christopher. That is a fan-made name and is not part of the FNAF universe.


  • When u said cristmas it sounded like 'chris' mas

  • Matt I think William is the one doing the talking through the fredbear doll ;)

  • so I think "Mustard Man" at Willy Afton's house, the one who was kicked out of Jr's, is Willy Afton, why? because EVERY time we see afton, he is always in the shadows, hence the purple figure but in that minigame, he is shown in the light which is why he doesn't appear as a shadow a bit of a stretch, I know but I'd like to believe it

  • My gest crist

  • I thought his name was chirs or Christopher Afton

    • No thats fanmade its non-canon and no proof

  • ive been playing this game called phantom roe, could you please cover it please?

  • This must be old... the Morty thing .. I’m not here all the time but I very obviously and reasonably think of Pewdiepie and idk if he made the original jingle but lwiay def isn’t original.

  • 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.

  • Matpat: makes theory Scott: that’s now part of the lore I’m running out of ideas

  • mat pat: tries for years to solve fnaf reddit: *im bout to end this man's whole career* no seriously fnaf theory vids are so entertaining to watch

  • The beginning gave me pennywise vibes

  • Hey matpat so in into the pit william lays the children for every to see in the foxy gogogogo minigame in fnaf 2 he does the same thing you maybe saying "but that could be the backroom" it isnt its invisible to the animatronics remember? so this means that the foxy gogogo minigame is a flashback to 1985 i am not really that good of a fnaf theorist but hey maybe we will find out something using this new knowledge?

  • Okay first off you guys are amazing with game theory second the book will tell and I hope you in joy the fnaf book

  • Shadow ferrdy is crying child and his name is Chris A F O T O N

  • Maybe it's a girl ,and it's ava ,but she just have short hair and gender swipe 😅

  • I'm waiting for the day ,a guy will find a small detail somehow somewhere ,and bam ,everything is solved !

  • He used the wrong formula and got the right answer


  • Can't wait for the 50th+ videos on FNAF lore because Scott JUST WON'T LET THE STORY END AFTER YEARS 🤠

  • 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?!"

  • The Knight is the Knight no matter what. I still get enraged about that one, sorry -_-

  • its noah

  • *sigh* Here we go again...

  • I think it is Christopher afton

  • "The one kid to have the first on screen death in the series" Charlotte from fnaf 2 minigame: **sad puppet noises**

  • Hey I think I know why hollow knight is a higher being he is not a higher being he is a part of a higher being the hollow knight has void in him at the start so that's why he use his skills and with the heart of the void he has a God on his side i am referring to the God of void because the hollow knight was made with void but i can be wrong

  • The crying child is chris afton

  • I'm fine with the name Evan. I'm coming for you game therost🙃😭

  • its crhis affton.

  • Matpat pleaseeeee do a theory on little nightmaress, theres so many unexplained things in that game i think it'd be cool if u can solve em hehe

  • Day 1 of asking game theory ro make a video about godzilla nes replay

  • How many "solved" videos can one person possibly make

  • I thought it was chris afton welp its evan

  • There is a change that Evan is crying child's name but we're just over thinking everything becouse the fnaf lore is so complex and we have been trying to figure it out for so long that we've forgotten how live

  • Ah yes another unwinable war

  • honestly i rather have a name then no name at this point. Also if you watch fnaf gacha you’ll know for some reason everyone calls the crying child chris, it annoys me!

  • the child is me after dropping icecream ;)

  • wait i am too

  • Bruh I ain’t even know fnaf had a Reddit... can someone drop a link to it. It’s COVID, I like fnaf, and have hella time... lmao

  • Wait its been so long sens i have whatch

  • 6 years since fnaf 4?! Damn I’m old
