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.

SARAH EGAN Před hodinou
This is totally in a different game called FNAF help wanted now my theory Stars we see in the game the tape girl says the dude in the game could see glitchtrap so we know glitchtrap was in the game before she went in what if the real glitchtrap took over his body and now he was glitchtrap and when she went to test the game he saw a chance to escape so he did the same thing with her and then we see William go into the game years later but I think she did the same thing with William and that's why we see William killing kids i think she went insane and that's why we see William killing kids but she was in control the entire time and she ended up becoming springtrap please correct me if you think I'm wrong

garronn Před hodinou
Hey MatPat, could you do your next FNaF theory on something from the games like; could a FNaF animatronic as depicted in the game actually exist in the 1980's or 1990's, or would leaving an animatronic turned off over night actually damage it enough to be more cost effective to leaving them turned on over night, or even if a company in the 1980's could actually get away with an employee contract/handbook that is as sketchy as what we see in the games?

RWQFSFASXC (SHADOW BONNIE) IS GLITCHTRAP! Both names have ten letters, they both are purple glitches in the games, (fnaf 3 minigame). Also they just stare, and randomly (not so much in VR) appear. And in fnaf 3 RWQFSFASXC gives cake... WHAT DO WE SEE AT THE END OF VR! I may not have alot of evidence, but that never stopped Matpat before, so I leave it to you to decide if it is possible.

Matpat should make a overview episode on FNAF going over what he got right, wrong, and what he expects in the future.
Allycat Před 3 hodinami
Jeez fnaf is a hard storyline to understand, I only get the gist couldn't explain timelines and dates. wow! Scott has a good imagination. It's nice how the lore is spread throughout all the games and books. I also like how Scott also appealed to the ones including myself, and others who like to think about a series even deeper. Scott's probably like let me see how much they can figure out and see how close they get to how I planned the story. FNAF reminds me of a long running show and I like it no matter how confusing some things are! Wow image if after the movie or movies fnaf turned into a show that would be cool!

Wow.......evan.....*sigh*....tbh I prefer the name Chris......because I feel more comfortable with the name.....but Evan?...*sigh*....idk this might just ruined fnaf for me.....i might go to back to sonic.....smh.....not to be a drama king but I for real prefer Chris because how long we have named him that it nows feels awkward saying that his name is actually Evan after this whole time.....but this is just my opinion so plz don't flame me :(..... And again this might be just another literal "theory" sad because of actually going to sleep sad because of this........smh -_-

In the new security breach gameplay trailer at 0:55 Gregory has 2 lines on his back which is the same to the crying child. Gregory is the crying child

Did you guys see the Security Breach trailer? Well, the first time that you hear the girls voice she says something about "Gregory." She says this while a boy, with a dark-colored shirt with white stripes is in the frame. hm.

Three things 1. I have a friend named Evan imma call him Crying Child but he doesn't know fnaf so that will be fun for a while until I break down and explain the whole fnaf lore (that I know) 2. (This is something that my half asleep brain thought of) what if the man who hired Stanley was Micheal? I mean it probably wasn't but um I thought about it and um I mean hes probably not but still 3. HAPPY CHILD LMAOOOO

What if...Henry Emily has been pulling the strings ever since BEFORE William Afton killed the children and BEFORE anyone from HIS or William's familly died, maybe HE made "a deal with the devil" and made HIMSELF and William "immortal",without William knowing and "Mike" or Michael was the only child of William's who inherited the immortaliy, and maybe Henry IS the "owner" of Fazbear Entertainment ,plus, intended the "deaths" of Michael's children to make him feel "Agony" and kill the children to stuff them to the suits on purpose for their souls to make agony, AND, maybe...Henry promised to "put his children backtogether", HE didn't think that William would survive or maybe he isn't alive, maybe not; Btw,Henry probably is the one who created the Stichwraith and is in it, along with the two kids, it's just a theory, a game....oh wait. By "immortality" I mean that his soul can't leave his body. Also I forgot to mention that maybe William has split personalities and glitchtrap is the other personality and the true murderer,plus the deaths of his family drove William insane. PS:Sorry it sounds like a Rick and Morty rant, btw maybe Evan is Henry's second child,not William's, and is forgotten by Henry and did not inherit his immortality like his sibling , or he's just William's kid and became Shadow Freddy and Glitchtrap is Shadow Bonie triying to manifest himself as a shadow but fails unlike Evan who is a "complete soul" and can do it easier, plus, he is part of Golden Freddy, I think? Maybe Henry has a different name and changed it to Henry, maybe he is the game version of Oswald from the books, can't wait for the next video....I hope you make a video explaining Springtrap's many designs.

So, physic friend Fredbear’s eyes are cameras, right? And Toy Chica has those same eyes. Maybe she’s gathering visual evidence. So, what does that mean for Golden Freddy? Do Evan and Cassidy see through cameras in the animatronics? Maybe the reason Golden Freddy can’t move is because the souls are stuck in a computer, only seeing the outside world via cameras in the head?? But hey, that’s just an idea - a game idea! Thanks for reading.

I find the line that MatPat brings up at 13:50 to be interesting. Evan notes that Michael is "intense about making money" and in the logbook, Mike draws baskets of money. Might just be another point where Scott wants to hint to us that Evan is crying child's name

Matpatt have you ever considered that Vanny and Vanessa are the same people but with completely different minds like for example Vanessa is the night guard trying to protect us and stuff but she doesn’t remember what Vanny does when Vanny takes over and if you look closely in trailer it seems to be that she doesn’t remember what Vanessa does because if she did remember she would have found Gregory by then but she doesn’t which includes her not remembering what happens of the stuff of what Vanessa did and I got another theory about Gregory if you read the Freddy files you could see Evan saying he doesn’t know his name what if crying child is Evan but since he doesn’t know his name he called himself Gregory which may seem more logical

The reason they added 5,3 on the magazine is because if Michael was in a foxy mask at the time foxy is related to Michael and yes even though Michael being the foxy is a old theory it kinda makes sense also considering that the grid has foxy on it

I have a theory that ties back to fnaf vr soz if it’s late but heres how it’s true: The game tester we played as was vanny/vannesa evidence shows in the fnaf minigame from the Halloween update when we get the mask and Put it on we breath slowly and feel safe because of a rabbit in purple glitchtrap knows it’s you and is now in full control of vannesa even more evidence shows as when we here vanny talk to glitchtrap it’s actually us because we’re wearing the mask he can talk and communicate with us dOnT hATe just my theory and now glitchtrap has full control over vanny going into security breach BUT HEY THATS JUST A THEORY A GAME THEORY THANKS FOR LISTENING no full stops no sense
