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.

  • guess im the crying child guys

    • I mean Evan made my childhood

    • EvanTubeGaming huh funny WAIT

    • 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

    • @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

    • who u?

  • I'm also not convinced… I think it could have been a thing to point to that story to say the crying child is Jake in "another viewpoint" like what Scott said about the novels, at least im pretty sure he did, i would have to watch your old theories and i don't have time for that.

  • I dont feel that Evan feels right i just feel like theres more way more.

  • You were saying Jake at the beginning and my name is Jade and I thought for a whole 15 seconds you were saying my name

  • When you learn more from matpat then actual school:

  • I think his name is Christopher afton or Chris

  • Make another petscop theory

  • I have a fnaf oc called Simon ;-; Why-

  • 13:42 at this scene from sister location, the silhouette of William is actually based off of Rick Astley. That's Right. You just got rickrolled by Scott Cawthon.

  • Hey matpat.i wanted to say something. First off all you are REALLY attached to idea is to make a theory on rainbow 6 seige

  • Cant wait for the next 37 fnaf videos disproving the previous one

  • Lol my name is Evan


  • When matpat addresses the problem with the hollow knight theory : *Happiness Noise*

  • Chris/Evan

  • 3:20 is the same song that pewDiePie has when it’s meme review

  • Can you make a theory on roblox piggy

  • evan feels right but im also a little bit skepticasl about the whole thing, it just felt too easy to find a mystery that hasn't ever been solved by 100s of thousands of different people

  • I have a Theory that seems like a stretch but hear me out: Tf2 and FNAF are connected. In the tf2 comics, Scout dies and goes to heaven where he meets god. After having a little chat about being "God's gift to women," God decides to give Scout a second chance, saying "See you december 4th, 1987!" This coincidentally was the night of the bite of 87, and the person killed that night was named Jeremy, and Scout's real name is none other than... Jeremy.

  • game theory yoshi is the father of pokemon so let me explain it said in one game yoshi is a dragon well here's what it was trying to say yoshi is a friendly type pokemon wich is a dinosaur and to expain that well look at pokemons X and Y pokedex there is pokemon wich are dinosaurs then take a look at the eggs and to about the other yoshis well they are dead even mario luigi peach bowser toads and every body else except the green yoshi but he died too because you can't get him in the game and thats my theory and if you like you can do more info if that isnt enough ok hope you like to help my theory.

  • That intro was weird bc ppl call me jake

  • 36,304th!

  • I'm gonna guess that Scott has no answer and has been rolling with it

  • Can you do little nightmares

  • Alright we finally did it guys. Well so you next Monday for when matpat figures it out again

  • I have a theory since it’s called five nights at Freddy’s and there’s more than five games and five books and basically everything it’s not gonna be five nights at Freddy’s it’s gonna be 5000 nights at Freddy’s 🐻

  • My sister tills me his name is chris i did this comment before o watched the full vid

  • Hey u remember DHMIS willllll there's a mobile game u NEEEEEEED to make a theory about it PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

  • paaaaaa

  • He should make a video on Friday Night Funkin

  • Little nightmares theory???????

  • Btw why is Cassidy so creepy and ugly Someone plz reply do not like my comment!

  • I say it's evan

  • 10:37 O? But first in order you have to be redeemed: is it MossBag, Mossbag, or mossbag?

  • In my theory crying child name is Chris/Christopher Afton

    • How is that a theory????? It's just a fanon cover up everyone goes through to make au's. No background nothing. Like I thought we all knew it wasn't his real name but just went with it

  • How to professionally cover lwiay as morty

  • Evan is the best we got so fare

  • Hey Game Theory. I have a challenge for you. Could you do a threory on Kerbal Space Program. I know it doesn’t seem to have real lore but I have already found some and it was kinda challeging.

  • *Yay more golden freddy in the thumbnail*

  • Dude the crying child is chris afton

    • Why??? Like where's the evidence he is? You must be a gacha watcher 😐

  • This is just getting repetitive at this point

  • This show is the only way I will connect to this fandom anymore

  • Pat there is something bothering me about the spirits which possess Golden Freddy, Cassidy is a GIRL with long black hair, the vengeful spirit thanks to the face that appears in ultimate custom night has is a BOY with blonde hair and blue eyes, but the crying child is a BOY with brown hair. Of course I know from your past theories that Golden Freddy can be possessed by more than two spirits, but that isn’t my question. All that made me think, who are the two spirits talking in the Log Book? and What if Mike is not the one speaking with red pen but rather some one else I have a ton of questions and so little with to analyze If you read this comment I will be truly happy Thank you for your time

  • not gonna lie i feel like fnaf sb is gonna suck

  • And once again, that intro makes me question Mat's sanity :)

  • I can't even imagine what would happen if matt did all of this work and Scott Cawthon just said it had no correlation.


  • Jake doesn’t know that his grandpa, William Afton, is in hell right and killed many right? Theory for you

  • We solved FNAF for the last time,again

  • Its Christoffer Afton/Chris Afton/ Crying Child

    • How- like that name has no evidence tho like it doesn't even relate to fnaf


  • Your child's name is Chris Afton

  • wtf then who came up with the name chris for the crying child?

  • I honestly think the crying child from fnaf 4 is Gregory. Let me explain. It sounds crazy only going off of one or two clues, but the crying child in fnaf 4 wears a striped shirt, and Gregory (The boy in the statue who sits inside of Glamrock Freddy) is also wearing an identical shirt just like it. These animatronics must also be his friends if he is willingly climbing inside of them and they are supposedly protecting him. The crying child also states quite clearly that they are his friends. However, he had to have seen something that made him distrust them in the first place, and the big brother is obviously making fun of him for something. Why? Because the crying child is scared of the big brother whenever he wears a costume. In the sense of the crying child being Gregory, this would explain why he was afraid of something like that, because he saw an "animatronic" (Vanny) kill someone at a place he thought was safe.

  • I know the name it chis

  • I'm confused with the lore. so I think you should make a video with the complete lore.

  • but what if his name is just "Eva" and his parents were expecting a girl-

  • I love the ASPITPIAY reference.

  • First on screen murder? what happened to the puppet during fnaf2

  • Why does intro sound like MatPat sounding like IT ? Just me ?

  • This is just a stupid thing that popped up in my head randomly and its probably not true at all but what if chris afton is the crying child? It more then likely is not true at all but eh... Just something random ignore me lol

  • im kinda hate when people call the crying child chris like bruh its not his name he is nameless xD

  • This got more views then actual fnaf gameplay :o

  • But then my question is where did everyone get "chris" for C.C?

    • Chris was a fan made name made for people to use if they wanted since he didn’t have a name.

  • he looks like an evan

  • Dear MatPat did you know that if you play UCN and set golden freddy to level 1 and buy the death coin a freddy top hat appears on your desk next to the microphone.

  • The Afton Family tree: William Afton----------? | | | Evan Micheal Elizabeth Afton Afton Afton Who is the mother? I think the mother is died! Cuz we are don,t know why William is killing kids and we are don,t heard about his wife if he had a wife? I know the mom is not important in the main story but...

    • I got it what is CAN be the mother,s name! In fnaf sl michel is watching that vampir show and in that show we heard only one name and michel and the animation in the show is poorly for 198X!! And michel has no family in the time of sl!!

  • Is it true that when foxy jump scares you in the hallway, the slowed down noise says “freedom”?

  • Disclaimer: I have not read the Fazbear Frights books and only going off what I have read about it online. However, I would like to bring some attention to Book 6's epilogue where the Stitchwraith is destroyed and a new, more sinister being is created. Supposedly, there IS another soul inside of the Stitchwraith. Like Andrew hitchhiked onto William Afton's soul, William attached himself to Andrew's. When the souls of Jake and Andrew are released from the Stitchwraith, William drags Jake back down and creates the new being, therefore forging a new body for William to wreak havoc with. I would also like to make note of Matpat's theory of agony as a power source in the FNAF universe. Perhaps there are two souls required for the logbook, Golden Freddy, the Stitchwraith and others BECAUSE of that. One soul acts as the power source, giving the creature life with the soul's agony. The power source can't see because it is just the fuel. The other soul is the pilot, allowing the animatronic to move around. My final food for thought is how Vanny connects to everything. Perhaps Vanny wants to kill "Gregory" and use his soul as a power source for an animatronic, OR she wants to use him as a way to bring Afton back from the dead via a soul transfer of some kind.

  • Please do Little Nightmare PLEASE!!!

  • Did you guys know that FNAF was actually a 1987 movie made by Walt Disney about emotion feeling animatronics in a failing pizzeria? I did not know that until today.

  • coooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooL

  • Wtf did I miss in like 4 years?

  • ;-; his name is Chris

  • Reddit solves everything ngl

  • Ao oni

  • Where is Kirby part 2

  • DEAR MATPAT, Little nightmares 2 left me confused. Even getting the secret ending didnt help. I keep coming to the same conclusion that 2 separate little nightmares timelines. The past and the present somehow merged to create a timeline where 2 versions of baggy exist. Please help.

    • And by baggy I meant mono

  • it's finally done...we did it...we found it

  • i know the Afton children are Michael Elizabeth and the Crying child is 100% Chris i have no evidence but i think its Chris then the parents are Clara and William

    • Bruh- Chris that fanmade name not canon,Crying child is 100% not Chris him name Evan or Mike) Clara that not Mrs.Afton,that girl from animation TV show lol-

  • I want security breach :(

  • So... remember the logbook? How there is repeatedly the words “what is your name” or whatever sprinkled in? I believe we decided the book was possessed by Golden Freddy right? What if some of the text in that book is them talking back to each other (the spirits in Fredbear that is) and some of it doesn’t relate to Mike? Maybe the 2nd spirit in Freddy doesn’t know it’s name and Cassidy (aka vengeful spirit) is taunting them!

  • the crying child's name is Chris


  • Did anyone else know that the aftons are real and fnaf is based of a real event

  • the crying child real name is chris afton

  • For some reason he kind of sounded like Shaggy mixed with Funtime Freddy, and that honestly made me chuckle

  • Ok but are you gonna finish the petscop theories?

  • I think the crying child name is chris Afton

  • I hate fnaf


  • Matthew 25:31-46 New International Version (NIV) The Sheep and the Goats 31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. 33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. 35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, 36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’ 37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? 38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? 39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’ 40 “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’ 41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink, 43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’ 44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’ 45 “He will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’ 46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.” -------------- ---------------------- ========================== ----

  • imagine remembering the whole FNAF lore

  • Can y’all stop with the “EvERy GaChA tUbER tHiNkS hIs nAmE iS cHrIs!1!!1!1”

  • The Virgin Chris Afton vs The Chad Evan Afto

  • mat, i really think you should do a theory on the little nightmares universe. i know you’ll probably never see this comment but still, look into that

  • Time passes, I remember me and my friends are really into FNAF stating opinions on what will comes next, theories, and especially watch Matpat's Fnaf theories when we were 3-4th grade. Now I'm in 10th grade and rest of my friends split into two groups for no reasons after 7th grade but everyone are still cool. Watching these videos Feels like yesterday and I didn't even watch anything on Game theory until the EEpush algorithm.

  • When it came to the graph I went and added page 89 and got "D" when I mixed it around I got "Dave" I'm in the 8th grade who doesn't even play fnaf but am interested in it so dont go off my word

  • little nightmares plz plz plz!!

  • THEORIE: IF HIS NAME IS CHRISTHOPHER (CHRIS FOR SHORT) IT MATCHES!!!! edit: i believe this is one of those fake connections of scott repeating the same name at the same time.

    • Bruh! Chris that fanmade name not canon! That fanon not canon lol-

    • also, the 'bite' happend before the party, as every night ending in fnaf 4 tells us how many days are left before the party. That, and another thing to make innestable the 'theory' of fnaf f: the medicals could be for sleeping problems and "visions" ( the nightmares). now let's see how you fix those leaks in your "perfectly" made protecting wall.
