    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.

      5. john


    2. Landgaming

      Why does he sound like Chris Griffen in the beginning lol

    3. Memory

      Theory: I think the crying child’s name has 4 letters because if you put 4,7 together with 7,5 it’s letters and if you keep going 10,3 then 10,9 you get a 4 letter name

    4. Mr Parrot

      2:06 Put together child

    5. meme

      Evan means youth and young warrior. In old english it is said to be possible meaning "Heir of the Earth" or "The King" I can't help with that think of The King of FNAF right away (aka Markiplier).

    6. Jake Perkins

      that was scary af

    7. Evan Boroff

      Am I the crying child? I don't even know.

    11. Nicholas Rochette-Caven

      So how does this theory hold up now that we are working under the assumption that crying child is henry's kid? (or maybe im remembering that wrong but either way)

    12. 「Kazumi」•ツ /perfection

        The Silver Eyes, the Twisted Ones, and the Fourth Closet are not canon, yes.

    21. KRGOOD

      GameTheory builds it’s channel from FNAF content, creator Scott Cawthorn comes under fire because of donations he made to political candidates…crickets.

    22. CxffeeRemi

      The half of the FNAF gacha fandom that put the name Chris: 👁👄👁 Me: I just put CC cause I don’t know his true name 😀

    23. Bill “Arson” Cipher

      I think it's Evan because there are no other boy names that start with "Eva"

    24. Zorro Plays

      Crying child is Chris Afton.

      1. Jakub Grono

        Chris is fan made name and is not cannon

    25. Eoin v8

      Are you sure that in the survival guide has the crying child in it maybe its a girl named Eva

      1. Jakub Grono

        Crying child is a boy becuse in fnaf 4 one of the bullies calls him foxy bro brother

    26. Jacob Peacy

      Could canny be phone girl

    27. TheDiamondChris Productions

      Heres my theory: Scott keeps changing the story in each new piece of fnaf media whenever we get close to solving the story

    28. Natavian Brown

      Warning spoilers to the Fazbear frights books. Okay hello! Recently I’ve been re-reading the epilogues/stitch wreath story’s, of the fazbear frights books and then I made a connection. So in Fazbear Frights #6 there was the story ‘The Real Jake’ and in that book was his nanny Maggie. Okay so, in the epilogue of Fazbear Frights #2 was this woman Maggie. The detective asked her questions. Some answers had been “I moved here 3 years ago” also with “I live on my own” but the most was “I had been taking care of a ill child while his dad was away/at seas. Then unfortunately he passed away. And I got the house.” Okay so I made this connection while reading, so Margie in Real Jake had been taking care of a ill child while who was Jake his dad was away/at seas. Then unfortunately Jake passed away at the end! ALSO! Margie had gotten the house. Also if you think it’s just a coincidence well in the epilogue she had been wearing makeup, though it didn’t seem she was trying to impress anybody, well. Margie from Jake, wore makeup not to empress anybody. Also Margie from the epilogue had cats, she had gotten one for Company and don’t quote me on this, I’m not sure. But I remember Margie from the real Jake also got a cat. Again I don’t remember. So yeah thanks for reading this long paragraph 😵.

    41. adool dool

      its prob eva

    42. ÑøTîtlêÇhãøs

      I think more searching will get the name, what has been used doesn't make 100% sense so until we get more I'd say hes just emotion child. I do feel like Evan could be it but imma just wait.

    43. Tsatsral Munkhbat

      So crying child aka michael afton's real name is evan???????evan afton

      1. ascended savage

        Michael afton isn't the crying child

      2. Heaveny Biscuits

        Michael Afton is the crying child?

    44. Bailey Nimmick

      Love how some people in the fandom including me who called him Chris

    45. °•°•Alexis°•°•

      I think that the name chris

    46. Zamiel Bazuka

      The name evan speak many times is = fnaf in a faster way speak it

    47. Tawnie Mische

      I think that MatPat should be one of Scott's voice actors cause that intro, holy gosh.

    48. Olivia Trivia

      Some people called the crying child Chris because Chris is the only name that sounds like cry

    49. Gui Ayvon

      maybe "evan" *the crying child* his dad had a tumor then he used the bear for "evan" then again "evan" got older THEN as it would his son was with a tumor and he did the same thing so... maybe this may lead to something or puzzle something together

    50. Tyra Pasion

      I gotta be honest my brain likes to consider these THEORIES as canon 😆💕. Also my guess is that, plot twists, the crying child’s name is Scott :3 😆 I have no reason I’m just taking a shot on the dark.

    51. Birdy Sophie x

      Wait if his name is Evan then how are people using Gacha stories as Chris or cc?

      1. ascended savage

        Because those are fanmade

    52. Mike Afton

      I befer it than Evan

    53. Mike Afton

      He’s name is Chris

    54. Michael Connolly

      Read the hello neighbor books

    55. Michael Connolly

      Please do more fazbear frights book theories

    56. Michael Connolly

      Nice video

    57. Itz-Alixx'sHybrid

      Before the FNAF fans in Gacha heard this we Called him C.C. Or Chris Afton

    58. Mikko dela cruz

      Not Mike and not Elizibeth

    59. Mikko dela cruz

      No it is Williams youngest son

    60. Mikko dela cruz

      No it’s Williams youngest son

    61. Jäegersjäeger

      Yall rember when this game series was just a game series where ya just check cameras and close doors Yeah, me neither

    62. Safin Kaka


    63. Tor Sperstad

      hey so um i looked into a name on wolfies page and found a name KEYO i know its weird but when i googled it a first i thought that it was some weird jumble of letters the i saw the definition According to a user from France, the name Keyo is of Japanese origin and means "Protector or life". A submission from Australia says the name Keyo means "Protector of life" so yeah he is the protecter of life if your wondering how i got that i took the page numbers of the crying child's responses and put them in the foxy grid and there also i used the individual numbers.

    64. ceokii !!

      it’s not that it’s wrong, it just feels weird to call him Evan because we’ve called him crying child for over 6 years.

    65. God of war Gaming

      I’m soild

    66. Heather Young

      If the crying child's name is Chris Chris Afton

    67. MasonFuzzyGamer1234

      Crying child Try to solve that with an "s" on the end

      1. MasonFuzzyGamer1234

        Answer is Chris How I answer: [C]ry[i]ng c[h]ild with an "S" at the end

    68. Brightly Light

      (Kind of late) 4:34 Crying Child said he can’t see, in Fazbear frights, Andrew can’t see but Jake and Cassidy can see. That’ll explain Crying Child is true vengeful spirit who want to torture his father because there are nightmare animatronics in UCN. Cassidy never had them so Cassidy isn’t the vengeful spirit. In UCN, the animatronics kept preferred the vengeful spirit as “he” and “him” meaning it’s Crying Child. “But William didn’t kill Crying Child!” Then explain why Jeremy Fitzgerald can survive the bite? William could have turned off life support while Crying Child was in hospital.

    69. Austin Crumbley

      I think his name is WASD

    70. Hattan Ziyad

      Crying child real name is Christopher

    71. Toasty Toast

      Honestly, I’m fine with Evan, because I get a bit annoyed when Gacha-tubers call him Chris

    72. Emma Allison

      The crying child is Chris afron William afron and Clara afrons baby son the boy in the foxy mask is Michael afron his brother Chris is called the crying child because he is crying a lot because well his own brother and his brother friend's bully him also Elizabeth afron is the victim of circus baby

      1. Emma Allison

        It probably means death or something 😶😶😶

      2. Joaquin Augusto

        you don't know what afron means do you?

    73. Lorenz Gross

      Does he still talk to you, I can here sounds, but not him. Do you get It now matpat

    74. W BAKANGA

      i think u rover thinking it cuz that's what scott wants what's right and what's that's up to him .... i think we have ample of evidence to clam crying child as - EVAN .......... but we must wait for security breach for conforming it as this Q can be solved in the next game -scott

    75. CREEPER2159 j

      Probably the worst thing a developer can develope is a horror game, because they must test that

    76. J Sarr

      3:01 did he just say "Freddit user"? Is that a thing, or was it a mistake, honestly can't tell 😂😂

    77. TheCoOtzi

      I think so i guess

    78. Galaxy GamerXDVillarmia

      crying child = chris afton?

    79. Elliot Andreasson

      Im just wondering why so many vhs tapes are refering to the crying child as joseph? Anyone else seen that?

    80. stxr vxxbes

      5:27 mat please sleep, those aren't oranges 😂

    81. The gaming lion fnaf girl

      The crying child name sammy Charlie twine bother who was taken when they where little

    82. Tristan Hall

      What if you figured out the name of Ms Afton "Eva" and the "N" is a bit off because he's name is similar to her That's just a theory A FNAF THEORY

    83. Spookeez


    84. AdibSidqi 360

      Finally i know what is c.c real name is...Evan but i can't surely sure..

    85. jboca & jsema

      Why dose the start of this video is pointing to me?

    86. LoganJames39 O

      Crying child’s name is Michael Afton and his brother is Derek Afton

    87. Brittney Carpenter

      Like I said before the crying child's name is Christopher Afton

    88. Caileigh Wilson

      the name is chris

      1. swing ?

        nope. Where's your proof? im waiting

    89. Daan Winne

      Did the crying Child die, I mean, he could have survived and than be in the book

    90. The cat channel

      Well I guess I’m the crying child

    91. Ajay Neginhal

      Y does he sound like Chris from family guy at the beginning of the game?

    92. Improvise Studios

      When we get 87 "fnaf solved videos we can finally say "was that the solve of 87?" It doesn't go that well bit it still sorta fits

    93. Benjamin Duncan

      Also doesn’t Cassidy posses the pupppet

      1. Trevor Stokes

        Nope, Charlie Emily does

    94. ElinN47

      Wait so how you said that The Real Jake is the only story that isn’t related to Freddy’s or an animatronic, but in the 5th book, first story, Bunny Call. I couldn’t really find a part were it mentions freddy’s. Sure Ralpho is an animatronic, I think- but it never mentions Ralpho being a freddy’s animatronic, like it was produced but Fazbear entertainment

    95. Benjamin Duncan

      Lol people on HRaero always called him chris

    96. ColinCartoons

      His name is WASD, idiots.

    97. ColinCartoons

      2:06 Mike Child?

    98. Ryan Burns Photography

      4:43 manifold?!?!?!?!

    99. Chrispy

      OK so put on your tin foil hats cus ive got a crazy idea. If the theory is true that Michael and Evan (Jake's father) is supposed to be the two Afton brothers from FnaF 4. So what if it will be revealed that Jake is the grandson of William Afton.

    100. Top Vik

      So this is why someone calling Chris Evan !!!!
