Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

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.

    I know the theory is 2 spirits in golden freddie (GF) but I think theres only one. So the crying child from FNAF4 is in GF then in sister location night 4 you're trapped in a spring lock suit. If that turns out to be the GF suit then it means GF got scooped, the only way it isnt the GF suit is if theres a third spring lock suit we never saw. Because we saw spring trap alive at the end of sister location when michael calls out to his father. Then when Enard enters the player he leaves but the purple guy doesnt die. Could that be because his brothers spirit stays behind and keeps him alive?

    Hey mat pat I have a theory about fnaf 4 what if we are playing as michael afton and not the crying child. I think that he is having nightmares about what he did to his brother a burning reminder of what him and his friends did. Like you said when you said that fnaf 4 doesn't make sense if it were real. Shouldn't the crying child be in the hospital why would he be at his house and he is sleeping in the crying child's room because he misses his brother.

  19. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

    Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy57 daqiqa oldin

    the name "Chris" appeared on some channel and then GoldBox made an animation using audio from that channel. And since there was no alternative, people started to use the names "Chris" "Terrence" although no word was said about them.

    Dear MatPat, it would be an honour to quickly draw your attention to something that is yet to be solved and may be important to the lore. Going back in time to sister location on night 4 we're put in an unknown springlock suit. I've been wonder since I played night 4 what it was if you could solve it I would be very thankful Edit: please like so matpat will see

    moonlight 38762 soat oldin

    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.

  31. Gsgsghs Gsgsgsy

    Gsgsghs GsgsgsySoat oldin

    about 30+ years have passed since the bite, so Gregory is not C.C . But I will not argue, the theory is pretty good

    Fernando Duron3 soat oldin

    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.

    Joey _The Tiny11 soat oldin

    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
