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.

Strange I'm actually looking back at the Novels in FNAF Silver Eyes it says that the missing children are Micheal Brooks, Susie, Cassidy, Fritz and a child in a striped shirt. Though the Gravestones say its Gabriel, Jeremy, Susie, Fritz and Unknown, with Charlotte in the background. That's a conflict for Susie, Cassidy and Fritz are still for sure the missing children but Gabriel and Jeremy are not in the novel's group.

I actually have come up with a theory myself over time. What if there's another child actually named Eva and the N found is the beginning of the Crying Child's actual name... Crying Child's name could start with a *N* and an unknown child, or mystery child might be name Eva. The three latter 'E' 'V' 'A' might actually be *part* of the puzzle and might fit somewhere else. The 'N' might be from another puzzle, but maybe there's more letters within that puzzle. I'm not sure if this made sense, but I hope it's readable. 👁👄👁👍

The Crying Child is the main protagonist of Five Nights at Freddy's 4's end of night minigames. He is the victim of the Chomp/Bite of ‘83. this is the crying child description now look at this is the second kid of William Afton and is the bite victim of the Bite Of '87. After the Bite of 83, he was in a coma and while in the coma experienced multiple nightmares. The nightmares are what the player experiences in FNAF 4. the 1st part of this sentence says the crying child but its under a subtitle saying "Explaining Chris Afton" meaning Chris Afton, One of William Aftons 3 children is the crying child

crying child is Williams Afton aka the murderer that killed the spirits son Chris, he died from a prank known as "the bite" pulled by his older brother Terrance who most know as Michael and his friends he is known as the crying child as when Michael bullied him he called Chris a cry baby and when he died he was crying so I'm guessing the tears he had when he died stuck onto his spirit

Unicornsbeastyo Prije 6 sati
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)

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....
