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.

  • 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?

  • noooo

  • Oh you know the eroded mechanical arm at the end, yeah Scott said on his channel Scott world that the arm belongs to the stichwrath, looks like we’re getting a book character into the games. So looks like the games and the books ARE connected.

  • wait I thought has name was Chris I am confuse someone please explain TwT

  • When you figure out the whole story are you going to do a full story video

  • Maybe the crying Child Aka evan survives the bite of 83 and goes overseas like in the book?

  • Day 8 of telling matpat to do a terraria calamity theory

  • I like how it took us until fazbear frights to figure out that missing children's cases take place in 1985 when in The Silver Eyes book on page 3 chapter 1 it says "What did you expect, that the whole place would be unchanged? A monument to the moment of your departure, frozen forever in July 1985?"

  • wait why is it evan if you can say eva just eva i know it sounds weird but you never know if this is the real name eva so i think that name is eva eva anton and the n dont need to put in BUT HEY THAT IS JUST A THEORY A GAME THEORY THX FOR READING THIS

  • It seems like the stories mirror each other

  • is it possible they used the numbers on the foxy magazine because foxy was the character drawn on the grid? I dont have the book, so I dont know how often he appears on other pages, but it's just a thought I had

  • isn't his name chris afton-

    • @Scott Cotton i- what?! my life is a lie...... Edit: btw i dont think ive ever talked to u or had this conversation with you- ever...

    • No it is not. and I believe we have had this conversation already

  • "OPEn The CABInETtT" My teacher on Zoom, talking about our newest assignment: So if you haven't opened it yet- ((confused internal screaming))

  • 0:29 you sounded like It for a moment, i was expecting him to say "Hiya Georgie..."

  • Anyone see the new movie and was disappointed

  • his name could be evan or chris

  • plot twist: matpat is wrong again

  • Ok guys I know this video is a week old but I have theory! So we know for a fact that the mall was being recently built in help wanted and it’s now finished. Now question comes in why are at a mall in the first place? I have a simple yet interesting theory I believe that glitchtrap with all his influence sent vanny to the mall however using his power to get her a job as a security guard that way she won’t have a lot of suspicion towards her when she forces her to kidnap kids and kill them Gregory being one of them but escaping. So glitchtrap comes up with a new plan, let Vanessa search for him and find him but take over again and have Vanny take him! I know it’s a stretch but I honestly think it would be cool! Sry for the long rant 😅

  • Everyone just calls him Chris now because it’s gone on for so long TT

  • I think you can say it's a stretch, but Evan and Elizabeth sound like good sibling names that sound good together. If you now what I'm trying to say.

  • Please please pleaseee do an analysis/theory video on the new trailer for security breach, I'm BEGGING. WE ALL ARE!!

  • Not really I think that's not 🚫 really it(the name) it just doesn't feel like it fits


  • I still REALLY feel like that there's more to the foxy thing, why he's out of order, was that ever solved? or just forgotten after it was disproven that he was the animatronic that did the bite of 87

  • I know it's late and ur probably not reading comments now but in the new security breach trailer the boy has a black shirt with grey stripes in one shot you know the crying child then the gaurd calls him Gregory that is what I believe anyway

    • an interesting theory, but if you take the fact that 30+ years have passed since the bite, then you can understand that it is not true

  • Mathew Patrick's gone mad

  • why was matpat acting like pennywise

  • 2:41 His name is Chris Afton

    • Chris=fanmade name stop spreading false information!

  • My second name is gabriel

  • You are wrong I have known fnaf for a long time and it is not Evan every thing he did like the back story all of that is right but the name of the crying child is wrong It is chris Afton Not Evan afton I knew the backstory before you solved it even the names and the dead kids in suits I knew that and I know that Evan is wrong it is Chris that’s all I’m going to say but it is Chris I’ll point out every mistake or something wrong and fix it for you even the names of the afton’s I knew always know I’ll fix the mistake bye that’s all

  • EVERYONE STOP WHAT YOU’RE DOING! Matpat solved FNAF again!

  • "most theories are trying to solve fnaf" also matpat: REDDITOR JUST SOLVED FNAF

  • did we forget about chris afton chris can be the crying child

    • Did we forget that "Chris" is the fan-made name for Crying Child?

  • Make the 8 bit foxy that we get in the mini games, put it in the paper and perhaps you actually get a name from following it

  • R.I.P. those gachatubers who thought the crying child was named chris

  • there just names is it really that important

  • F for Jake

  • My theory is that Glitchtrap is the virtual embodiment of William. Think about it. in the last minigame of help wanted, he lures you into a back room, like you're a child and he's the purple guy.

  • Does anyone remember when Fnaf used to just be 7 kids killed getting revenge on their killer?

  • For anyone who's name is "Evan": your the crying child aka c.c aka Evan ✨👌

  • You see, ign just released a gameplay trailer for security breach... Matpat, I expect a new video on this by the end of the month.

  • I've got something interesting. On the Fnaf security breach trailer, there was a person looking at an array of of screens that are all static. But if you brighten the picture, you can see the same stripes as 'the crying child'. I'm not sure if this actually the case though as it was on another platform that I saw this.

  • It’s like a gta money glitch, you don’t know how, you don’t know why but somehow... they find it

  • This is probably not important but,I was watching fnaf line voices with subtitles and I can hear a children's voice in the back when nightmare fredbear is talking.

  • why dont we just call him Bob

  • The Quan child needs to get out of years years already did

  • Cassidy is a weird person

  • Wolfy looks like crying child idk if that was intentional but it is interesting

  • Personally, until proven wrong, I've been calling the Crying Child as "Freddy"...Because in FNaF 4 "we are spending 5 nights in 'Freddy' 's nightmares" =P

  • I thought the crying child was called chris afton

  • Haha this would be funny if scott is like, yall are digging way to deep to find something

  • Well if u see in gacha life and club many people but Christopher Afton its just a theory I don't know but just search Afton family and boom

  • i think his name is chris because if you lison to his death veary cerferly you hear elizibeth and one of micles frends call the crining cild chris

  • Ngl scott is a genius, imagine doing all of this. It's almost impossible!

  • you do know that the crying childs name is chris, right?-

    • you know that "Chris" is a fan made name, right?

  • You should make theory on little nightmares


  • Matpat: Finally i finished fnaf. Scott: i'm about to finish this whole man's career Matpat: *makes another fnaf theory* "it was at this moment he knew he f*cked up"

  • I think his name is cris

  • Scott could just say the truth and that is it

  • Dear Evan Afton you've been way to out of touch-

  • his name is Gabriel Afton i think

  • We've won mr stark

  • The dad is the Freadbear plush

  • M.O.R.T.Y THEORY His name is miull I think

  • Man the mystery of lore behind it is awesome! 👏

  • Morty Theorie:Fnaf Security breach is another universe and vanny is the wife from Afton!

  • Bloon boy who is it ...

  • Little did Matt know, a new FNAF game trailer was released literally days after this

  • Evan will do for now.

  • oi I don't care just stick with the name. i have ben watching and thinking what the name about the c.c

  • I have a theory u can look into = « micheal is the crying child ». I know why but I’d like you to test it ;)

  • There is now ten books.. TEN. Look on amazon and see for yourself.

  • me when i see crying child: Hey it's Chris Afton!

  • My life has been a lie 🥲 I thought the crying child’s name is Chris 🥲🥲🥲😆😆😆

  • Remember that the books are essentially an alternate version of the Fnaf story So what if the story of blackbird is just a telling of a story where the crying child never dies He lives a relatively normal life, sheltered by his older brother The crying child gets older and eventually gets told the truth, to keep him from having to deal with his fathers mess, Mike gets him to enlist in the military while he deals with the purple guy. Of course this is all just baseless speculation, no evidence supports thisbother then the brother being called Mike. But still food for thought

  • New Trailer new Video...(Hopefully coming soon)

  • NGL i just realized! Jeremy from FNaF VR Cut off his own face At a theory we just covered Jeremy being bonnie Withered bonnie has no face, and we knew that Jeremy cut of his own face Idk what is this but is a random thought

  • What if William had four children?Michael,Elizabith,Evan and the crying child and Evan was probably never mentioned in FNAF because he was training to be in the military and Evan could’ve been the oldest child. HMMMmMmMmMmMmmMm

  • Prepare for security breach mat :)

  • MATPAT ,yes you ,listen. Can the stichwraith be the moon animatronic in security breach? Because they both look almost the same and both walk in a limping way?

  • also matpat if u are reading this i have a few questions that i really need the answer(some u might answer already) 1. are the toys and phantoms possessed? 2.if they are possessed what are the soul names? 3.if the fnaf one soul got 'rip' in to parts(the souls) and theres very piece of them inside the funtimes then why all of them was in custom night? 4.then if william afton had kids then whos his wife? 5.when the nightmares used to be illusion and now flesh are they possessed by more souls? i know it sound funny but i just really want the answers also a lot of people said that chris afton is the crying child's name


  • These videos is why I unsubed. I miss the videos that were actually theorys and used brainpower.

  • Wow I missed a lot of theories of fnaf

  • Hey, I thought I'd just point out something. The name we gave the bite victim was just, "Crying child," right? I wasn't fully convinced his name was Evan either (for the most part it's because I'm so used of saying crying child lol,) but I decided to just search up the origin of the name "Evan" like what we did with the name Cassidy. For the name Cassidy, we learned that in Gaelic is meant curly-haired and therefore we were convinced. In Gaelic, the name Evan translates to "Youth" and overall youth is defined to exactly "A period between childhood and adult age" and childhood means child, right? So as far as I'm concerned, I'm convinced Evan is the Crying Child's real name. (Also, I recall somewhere in your videos you mentioned the golden Freddy vengeful spirit wore a crocodile mask, in security breach, there's supposedly a character called "Montgomery gator," right? Yes, yes alligators and crocodiles are different things, I just thought that was a cool detail cause I know Scott doesn't do coincidences...)

  • His name is Chris Afton

  • The crying child name is Christopher or for short Chris Afton. Also you can call him Evan too

  • Isn't it Christopher Afton? ( chris)

  • Also William's wife is Clara Afton who when drives off a cliff and dies possessed Ballora

    • we know nothing about Mrs. Afton, and where did it say that she was Ballora? This is a theory, not all theories canon.

  • No hate but isn't the name of the crying child Chris Afton. I figured it out in fnaf 4 i looked at the names of the Aftons and it said Chris Afton. Though this has not been solved i am pretty sure its Chris Afton because the only afton left on the list was chris, there is no chris in the family but there is a crying child Afton.

    • "Chris" is a fan-made name and has nothing to do with canon.

  • Nostalgia's kickin in my dude. Beautiful

  • Start at 3:33

  • The new fnaf security breach trailer is out and it has a lot of new things can you do a theory on it.

  • Crying child's name is Christian Afton

  • I got to redo ur timeline or at least talk about it

  • Simon is the most the most creepy thing I’ve seen in all these videos

  • Let’s face it, nobody can ACTUALLY solve fnaf, they can only get close... *kind of close, anyway*

  • Maybe the crying child is a girl and her name is Eva???

  • The careless tile intralysosomally cause because science biologically applaud amidst a meek millennium. incredible, tidy crook
