    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.

      4. 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

      5. Sleepy Eliza

        who u?

    2. rey ley

      I think micheal afton is not the brother of crying child

    3. Ruiner Ryan

      Was that the bite of 87?

      1. Gunslinger


    4. Jaiboi

      😲 Evan? Dang I think some gachatubers are gonna get mad

    5. EMachine Bros yt

      Evan is my name lol

    6. Adamboulahia17 Adam2015

      I miss the days of accually playing fnzf and finding easter eggs

    7. My3sons1213

      Bruh hearing my name in the intro was very disturbing to me.

    8. A.C.

      I have a theory, what if Afton put the crying child into golden freddy to make him like his daughter, but because Cassidy was there first the crying child didn't become like Baby

    9. Hi Dankmemes69

      This week for show and tell I Braught fnaf is finally solved. Teacher ,mat pat this is the 7th week In a row that you braught fnaf finally solved

    10. Chris Barnett

      It's kind of dumb but there is always the possibility of Evan Jr.

    11. Peko pekoyama

      I miss friend Fred bear

    12. Alfredo Romero Aldana

      He should do a Video reacting to the new Security Beeach Trailer

    13. Jack Giannaris

      A week goes by and the trailer for the new game drops. Nice

    14. Brendon Rusterholz


    15. Elijah Favilla

      Might as well call him Crying Child Chris Evan Afton for the time being

    16. Brad Darda

      Figure out the lore of the game Spelunky to explain “The Walls Are Shifting” and why

    17. The Reaper

      Evan connects to the book to try and bring it

    18. Maya Segal

      Alot of people call him Chris for "crying child" and now when you say it's Evan.... psychologists say that when someone has a name and you know him by that name and now you change it people think it's weird...

    19. Recxnnectedd

      Maybe there’s no N at the end and it’s just EVA



    21. James Tester

      I think that the stitchwraithe is collecting parts to re build himself to join the fnaf crew

    22. Dan M

      And now we have fnaf security breach coming

    23. Belle Animates

      Maybe crying child's name is just Eva

    24. lilly y

      "There's no 'tally up your score' at the end of those nightly surveys." Then how in the *hell* did you get an image of it at 9:34 if it doesn't exist??

    25. AyoOrich are

      There is a connection. From what I’ve heard, the puppet in the book seem to be controlled by some sort of walkytalky, just like in fnaf 4. in a way, both the crying child and the cancer child are both dying. The cancer child from cancer, and the crying child from a bite wound. Maybe there is someone in the fnaf 4 game named Evan. A friend you meet in the minigames you Play before the Night Starts. It seems like there isn’t one, but I feel like it would be worth looking in fnaf4 again? Because strangely enough both the golden Freddy puppet and the ‚evan‘ puppet Try to help in situation with NO good ending. This is my theory

    26. deadpoolnerd

      Member when this was just a cooky pop at you horror game about killer chucky cheese animatronics? Yeah good simple times.

    27. Galixing

      This might be to much to ask for but could you do some rainbow six siege lore about the person “six” mainly his wife because he said she left some big shoes to fill in but we don’t know her if you could please do a theory thank you 😊

    28. That Nerd Winter

      Matt at 12:51 : "I'm actually not gonna spoil here" Matt 2 minutes later : *Spoils the story*

    29. Susn Bavaria

      Just saw the new trailer for Fnaf security breach.

    30. Charlee Walker-Beard

      0:36 don’t worry, they just really like ketchup

    31. Black Mamba

      Hey, i watched your videos from the joker (2019) again and I stumbled on something. It may just be a thought and nothing else, but what if everything that happened in the dc universe. Batmans parents dying, bruce Wayne becoming batman and almost killing the joker, robin being turned into the joker at some point, are all just the thoughts and fantasies of the Joker. He finally get’s the spotlight and even kills batman and super man in the comics if i’m correct. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but just shot through my mind. Great vids btw! Keep it up!

    32. Hellen Bonilla

      My theory is that dabbing chica hates kids because she dont have childhood so she make all the animatronics kill kids and dabbing chica is forever the villian🥵🥶

    33. TheDJayProject

      "does he stil talk to you" fun time fred bear?? that makes sense if its the crying child

    34. Galaxyghostnigthmare

      Hey Mat can you turn the brightness up in the fnaf gameplay trailer in the 2021 image to see if Scott pulled a Scott and secretly put in the day with the brightness turned up and tell us if I was right? Thanks!

    35. im_sum1

      isnt his name chris.

    36. Dan The DJ

      There is a another grave stone

    37. Aish Shamri

      Matt...there's a new game

    38. Crow Of wisdom

      The crying child name is Sammy it in the shining eyes aka the first book

    39. white death. Lau Larsen

    40. Cheezit Robin


    41. Ascended Black M and M

      Pov:you came back to see matpats series of fnaf for no reason

    42. Faceless

      But what about the two spirits in Stitch Wraith?

    43. Melina Sanders

      The beginning reminded me of royale high

    44. Faceless

      Everyone: "Doll" MatPat: "Dawal"

    45. Jose van Eijl

      Did anybody notise the ASPITIPY referens? ASPITIPY is created by MANDJTV btw

    46. Eleanor Flynn

      I know i've posted this before but you remember the girl from fnaf 4 that looks like baby? What if it was Baby using her... pins and stuff (you know what I mean). Actually tbf loads of people have probably said this. Not sure how it would work exactly but you never know.

    47. Johnny and Emmet SpongeBob Mouse Unikitty Gaming TV


    48. Bluelighter3D

      Who possesed balloon boy?

    49. ImAlreadyBlaze

      If you look really close in the new fnaf security breach trailer Gregory is wearing the striped shirt that the crying child wears. Also he has the same brown hair. I believe the crying child is Gregory but... somethings dont line up

    50. Alyson Dunsmore

      he has done so many fnaf theories he needs to make a channel called fnaf theory

    51. General Smite

      I week after a fnaf theory they dropped a trailer for security breach

    52. Jamaay

      I suddenly went back to 2014 for like 15 minutes.

    53. Marley Brisque

      I thought his name was chris

    54. Julian Kiewietz

      I have a theory what if glitchtrap controlled william to kill kids

    55. Osama Alshami


    56. Wisee Is Fluid

      Wasn't the crying child Mike?!

    57. Marc Justin

      Idk why but they call cc, Chris

    58. Felix M

      Why People Peanut brain can't fit this all in there brain

    59. Zinky Doinks

      ya know jake im not oing to open the cabinet

    60. Nostalgic Trilogies

      Btw , why some people think that chica is a duck or something /: she's a chicken 🐤

    61. Demi Jade

      The picture of 'Evan' from the part where he I stalking about the book is scary because he has brown hair like.... CC's hair is brown too..... And has a brother that's really strange......? Can someone tell me to stop?! I think the book Evan is actually CC. But how can he be? CC is dead! CALM DOWN!!! Please can someone help me theorise? I am confused. Could Evan (the dad) be CC? I think he can, plus SKFFB said he'd bring him back, so maybe his body works, but when he's asleep he posses Golden Freddy but to make it look like he is still, he got his body to toss and turn? I think this is a good theory, for me. Can anyone agree? Thanks! BYE

    62. 4rsh1

      I hate fnaf and horror stuff but these videos make me think and have heart attacks

    63. Ultimate Alliance

      I just watched the fnaf playlist a week before this came out and was thinking when he'd come out with another video

    64. Cole TSM

      Mr matpat im so sorry to disturb but i wanted to share something this may brake all the progress but it just came to me i watch the playstation trailer for security breach not long ago i just cant help thinking that the last weird thing at the end of the trailer is William afton but different dawko describes in the last chapter of blackbird frazbear's fright in the stitch rath story about the the reborn William afton the description describes a bunny figure made out of bits and pieces of animotronics and i just can't help thinking that that is William afton from the game do you think that this could mean that game and book collide please let me know ps im 13 thanks mat pat 😁

    65. this is nothin


    66. GalaxyDoggo YT

      The crying child is Micheal

      1. GalaxyDoggo YT

        or Evan

    67. Taylor Findlay

      What if when the toys where going to get scraped they where took to the scooping room and toy chica's the suit you hide in and she's was modified as a funtime chica concept or prototype

    68. furious potato

      reddit moment

    69. LR05

      Did anyone realize in the happiest day mini game the "crying child" had the golden Freddy mask when you gave him the cake. I'm not sure if I'm correct but didn't that fit as some evidence that he is the other soul in golden Freddy?

    70. VoidableCat123

      matpat can you please do a theory on Little nightmares 2 and 1 it would be very interesting

    71. Avery Savage

      Matpatty cake!

    72. Cullene's world

      the name is chris

    73. Najma Khan

      Its evaaaaath

    74. Najma Khan

      Its evath

    75. Najma Khan

      Hmmm what about evath

    76. McRonlad

      (I quickly want to mention that my theories are pretty much just guessing and not backed by any evidence) Can the EVAN mentioned in the Survival handbook even be the Father? Didnt Crying Child die due to the bite of 87 and therefore got passed on to Golden Fredie? A theorie im thinking about is that Crying child didnt actually die but he got mindswapped like Alec in the Shortstories in Fazbear Frights: Fetch. Though we dont know what or who is controlling the bodies of the possesed Kids. I dont know if they still have their actual knowledge or how they behave after the swaps. Perhaps their goal is then to gather more souls for the animatronics and that could be the reason he has the puppet there. To be able to capture Jake's soul. For this theory to work out there are 2 ways i can think of. Either Crying child changes his voice when he talks with margie and actually is still young, or he somehow traveled back in time like Oswald did in Fazbear Frights: Into the pit and therefore became an Adult.

    77. SpeedyKnight

      ur fnaf intro is why i never watch fnaf vids

    78. Ryan Akana

      That hollow knight theorist is debunked

    79. xX_ThatFlower Girl_Xx

      MAT, DID YOU SEE THE NEW SECURITY BREACH TRAILER!? THERE'S BALLORA'S MUSIC IN IT AND EVERYTHING. I'm freaking out, sorry. I'd love to see a theory on this though. The new trailer is so cool! Please watch it and update us on any new theories you might have based on it. Like, why is ballora's theme in the trailer? Is there going to be some connection between sister location and security breach? So many questions on that alone, too many to list. Please make a theory on this, I need answers Mat. ;-;

    80. {Littledemon}

      OK Evan is not the crying child name it is the child to the first child that they ever had with William and Cara Afton I can give you a hint what the name of the crying child because I already know it BTW Mitchell is not the first child

      1. Nuker Propane


    81. •Bea•

      0:15 this is actually what I sound like when talking to my friend Jake

    82. seteccy the best

      Well Evan is the dad of the son he is the person that fredbear bit or Michael well William built fredbear diner and could mean that the crying child I Michael that's just a theory

    83. 《Violet And Friends》

      Then that can't be....williak is Sofia the first now...

    84. Marcus Marriott

      I have a theory:so the new fnaf game is out yes ik ik u dont wanna hope on this but when I watched the trailer the kid had something on his shirt....he had stripes just like the crying child so it made me wonder if this has anything to do with the bite of 87 and if hes a relative

    85. Amy Heyneke

      When the movie comes out- if it comes out that is- I can predict at least one sentence in that film theory video because u can bet mat will do a film theory on fnaf the movie That video will 100% have the sentence "yea... fnaf ended up making it onto this channel too.. fnaf rlly is taking over my life" or something Simmilar

    86. Arst Sten

      What if its a girl and her name is Eva?

    87. Official Gina

      I know ur trying to figure this out but crying childs name is chirs and he was in golden Freddy and then Cassidy I guess asked if she can only have the skin soot and the he used the shadow Freddy and I'm sorry if you didn't want me to say this and is u wanted to figure it out yourself

      1. Nuker Propane

        Chris is a damn fanmade name

      2. Official Gina

        Im sorry I didn't mean to miss spell some sorry (◞‸◟ㆀ)

    88. Nieve Lea

      I got literal chills

    89. Bacon Is Nice

      ‘Evan’ Isin’t Very Convincing Scott Is confusing us again + How would a plush connect to a Animatronic? Fredbear + Chris (ALT UNIVERSE) = Golden Freddy (Where Cassidy and ‘Evan’ Shares a Suit) Over The Games; 2,3,6. (in 6 they must be hiding) and UCN but its just a “Evan is CC and nothing else” “Evan is CC and Bite Victim and Top Theoreist of the FNaF Peradise, - BIN” FLB

    90. UZIdyldon420

      I’m going to die before this game is solved

    91. Soren Hawk

      Matpat needs to listen to "IT BEEN SO LONG" by the living tombstone to hear the words (sanity of your mother) and (long before im become a puppet) this could be (Vanessa Afton song theory)

      1. Soren Hawk

        @Nuker Propane yeah I know that but still it wouldn't hurt to see if im right

      2. Nuker Propane

        How about no? That song is fanmade and has zero connections

    92. Desterus The broken

      Can you like stop talking about your hollow knight theory? xd it has been debunked, you are NOT king, you are son of the king and you were alive when the king was still alive

    93. Nguyen Hai Ninh【鈴海苔礼】

      To MatPat: could you please make a theory about FNAF Security Breach soon, cause you have probably watched the trailer that was release 2 days ago. Thanks if you do it, your theories are still great as ever!

    94. Potatical

      We need a 5 nights at matpat’s

    95. Smiley Sword

      My names Evan no joke.

    96. KINGZ

      0:55 why does he look like Jake Paul

    97. Waffly Empress

      I think the crying child's name is Chris afton

      1. Nuker Propane

        Its a fan name

    98. amelia gulferica

      My theory is mike is the crying child and the nightmares used to attacked mike then the nightmares felt bad then chris comes in. Mike is bullying chris cuse mike does not get much love so mike got abused by william or his father then chris comes in mikes room and the nightmares thout chris is replacing mike and the nightmares also thout chris is the couse of mike's bad life so the nightmares tries to attack chris in the night then the crying child name is passed to chris.. So thats my theory..

      1. Nuker Propane

        Incorrect and chris is a fan name

    99. amelia gulferica

      Crying child = evan or chris

      1. Nuker Propane

        First one Second one is a fan name

    100. KING_ glokkz blangin

      Here’s a theory who the 1001 is friendly?
