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 think the crying child is Gregory from security breech. the crying child was killed in 1983, as evidence from the TV in the crying child's living room. and the location visited in the silver eyes, is an abandoned mall where they built over the original Freddy's pizzeria location. the silvers eyes takes place in 1995 leaving plenty of room for the mall to shut down. I know that "Dave" if that is his real name, is still walking around but, we can ignore that because the books are not exactly canon, different elements take place in different corners of the series canon. We can assume that Gregory witnessed a murder right? well some people would argue that the crying child ALSO witnessed a murder. Therefore, Gregory could very well be the crying child. The only problem with that theory is we do not know exactly when the mall was open.

I had a doubt. Is Freddy's (First one) open before/while the bite of '83? If no, then press read more. If yes, it makes sense but if you want to see the problem, then you can press read more. Because, in the start of FNaF 4, Evan's (Or crying child{Hello EvanTubeGaming}.) room have the main four on the corner. How does he have their plushies when Freddy's is open after the Bite of '83? (If freddy's is open after the Bite of '83)

So after a little digging for the past couple of days, I have come across, something. This is very odd but has anyone taken a look at Five Nights at Freddy’s (1987 films)! Yes films! It goes from fnaf 1-4 with fnaf world and sister location, but I think either this is a whole ruse or Scott changed his story from it. Idk but I’ll leave a link for some of you to check.'s_(1987_film)

Personally I'm not convinced because Evan would have been mentioned somewhere else not just the story and the foxy draw-it task. Evan seems too much like a red herring. Think about it every other thing has had hints to more than one thing towards a theory. But that pattern in itself could be a red herring so I need more evidence toward this to convince ms

Okay, not related to the contents of this video, but I've been binging fnaf theories tonight and I can't sleep and I think I just worked out the Stitchwraith Storyline and how it ties into the main story of the older games. 1-UCN. What we know so far: The emotion of Agony is what powers Remnant and allows souls to possess animatronics. Multiple sources of Agony can be pooled into a single Animatronic. Henry's was in Agony over the death of his daughter. Henry Rebuilt his daughter as an animatronic and her soul appears to possess it. Henry built the Stitchwraith endoskeleton which goes on to kill him, per his wishes. Stitchwraith goes onto collect parts of other animatronics and items that possess Remnant/agony. Stitchwraith "dies" protecting Charlie, Henry's rebuilt daughter. Henry is somehow alive to set up the events of Pizzeria Simulator. Henry burns down the Pizzeria Simulator to destroy the gathered Animatronics. Remnant can only be destroyed with High Temperatures. Henry Remains nearby during the fire to die along with the player and the Animatronics. What I think the Stitchwraith is up to is either: A) The stitchwraith is rebuilding and reviving Henry using the Agony/remnant of the Parts he is able to collect Or B) The stitchwraith IS Henry and he is collecting the parts to repair himself to continue his mission. Regardless the end goal is the same, to allow Henry to indefinitely chase down William and finally put an end to Williams plans and murders and claim his revengence, as per what we found out in the UCN Freddy Vs Foxy Intermissions. I think that would then place the Stitchwraith events as occurring after William gets trapped in the Spring Bonnie suit. Henry Knows about Remnant, he knows what it can do, and most likely knows Agony, like the kind one would feel with the death William suffered would lead to him possessing the the Spring Bonnie suit. Henry, by the events of Pizzeria Simulator clearly feels responsible, if not obligated to stop William, no matter what or how long it takes. He would want to ensure that if William somehow escaped from the sealed up safety room he would be able to continue to chase him and try to defeat him. It is their destiny. But hey, that's just a theory. Edit: Reposting this on the GT reddit page I just remembered existed. Account name Ceroxis.

I feel like Evan has a connection, like how you said with the other book about the child in the hospital, but if we are trying to say the crying child is the Evan from that book doesn't that not add up at all considering the crying child died as a child in the bite of '87? Maybe I understood it wrong and what he was getting at was different than what I just said, but ya I feel like it's close but not quite there....

BOYS.👏CAN'T.👏GET.👏PREGNANT.👏 why can't people just accept that fact?! And the father is nightmare. FREAKING NIGHTMARE. And they also made "Chris" OP😒 when a comment said that boys can't get pregnant, the creator and two other comments said "its gacha logic" UUUGGHHH Gacha logic isin't an excuse and doesn't even have logic.

^ yeah, its really annoying. Especially when they make him OP. Tf. And when they make him befriend/date his FREAKING NIGHTMARES, like, they made him has days of several nights and he's scared of them, and if they are dating, What the heck?! He's a child, *a minor* and they are shipping him with his nightmares? Not to mention that their probably illusions or actual animatronics. And that alone is messed up because if they ARE illusions, that means your shipping crying child with nothing, how can you even date your illusions? And if they are animatronics, that just means your shipping a child with a robot -_- and let's be honest, if you have Nightmare, Nightmare Golden Freddy and the rest of the fnaf 4 gang keeping you awake at night, would you want to date them? Of course not! And when some gacha people ships a minor and adult in fnaf and they get confronted about it most of them say, "well its a long time since (insert fnaf minor) been dead so its basicly legal." Or something like that, and when someone says that ghosts can't age they say "well its my au" like that's not an excuse! Sorry for my long rant.

I doubt this to be completely true. Evan from the book, granted I'm going off of what I've heard because I haven't read the book yet, is a father, has a brother named Michael, and his kid has a tumor in the front left part of his brain. Now the crying child from the FNAF series is one son of three kids total, has a brother named Michael (an older brother), and has lost his front left lobe in his brain from the bite of 1983. think that it's worth mentioning that at the end of five nights at Freddy's 4, the crying child's heartbeat monitor flatlines. In response to that psychic friend fredbear replies, "I will put you back together again." Now, last I knew, humans can't be torn apart and put back together like a toy or ROBOT. ROBOTS can't reproduce to have children either. Could they create one? Possibly. But all evidence points to this rather being less from the perspective of Evan and more the perspective of Evans son. After all, what if Michael or William spoke to the crying child through the walkie-talkie to calm them during the night? When their nightmares were the worst?

I’m convinced that the name Evan for the crying child is not 100% confirmed, but I am also convinced that we can kinda start calling the crying child some other name, for now at least. So for the time being, I’m going to start head cannoning the crying child’s name to be Evan. But only for now.

Okay so, there might be a FNAF game that connects to the story with Jake. FNAF 4 and UCN. Allow me to explain. As we all know, Cassidy has the ability to mimic the voices of other characters in UCN. As we all know from FNAF 4, there's Nightmare Foxy in the closet. I'm relating this to the doll in the cabinet and someone using a radio to mimic the voice of a young child. Nightmare Foxy may not be in UCN or have any voice lines, but what if this relates to Nightmare Foxy and the ability of Cassidy copying the voice of other animatronics? There might be some holes in this theory, but I just wanted to point that out.

May I propose my theory.. in the new security breach gameplay trailer we see a purple claw like hand at one point and my theory is that this is spring trap. We see when the animatronics are burned that spring traps hands are claw like under all the fur fabric and in the trailer for the new game the claw is covered is something purple. This is just my thinking and not definite but I was also thinking if this is right then this could be another point to William being split like horcrux or another possibility is that at some point in the next game Vanny successfully bring spring trap into the real world once more. Just some ideas.
