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.

  • Some people on rhe fandom call the crying child Chris. But for some reason for me Evan feels a little off, why would Scott give a "hint" on something that is 6 years old! It doesin't feel right to me. But i'm good with Evan..... for now

  • My theory, based upon what you discover in FNAF AR, is that Vanessa is fighting for control of her own mind. As was suggested by Mat Pat, but I came to this conclusion long before he made his theory. But this gameplay trailer solidified it. The person talking in the beginning and the man yelling are William Afton. Why do I know this? I analyzed the voice and compared it to the voice you hear from the FNAF VR minigame. It's the SAME VA! Therefore there will be times she is in control and genuinely wants to help us, but I think Afton will slowly win as she dawns the suit. Showing her full body committance and that she is now fully in his control. I think one of her acts of defiance will be giving Gregory the wrist watch seen in the trailer. Because it has access to cameras in the multiplex, a map, an inventory, and logs. The only way he would have access to this information is if SHE or FREDDY gave it to him. Another thing that suggested a shift in her personality? One, she has the purple nail polish, and secondly... As she watched Gregory from outside the glass elevator her neck twitches subtly. Her lips were partially opened in shock before the neck twitch, but then her body subtly becomes more trained on Gregory after the neck twitch. And when she says they have to get him "Out by morning" it is my thought that either they are going to lose control of their own body to William by that time or she is trying to lure him out by that time. I think there is a clear distinction between "Vanny" and "Vanessa". Vanny seems like a nickname, less formal and playful. While Vanessa is a real name. I think Vanessa is the real her while "Vanny" is a combo of "Bunny" and "Vanessa". Something William came up with. A new name for a new killer. I think we are going to either save her and ourselves by the end of the night or at least try to. But I think William is due to return as a nightmare animatronic. Due to the ending with the hand in purple lighting or Vanessa gets stuffed. Either way it is the rebirth of a killer.

  • I dont know if matpat has talked about this, or if its just not important, but i'll say it anyway. In the trailer for sister location, you can hear a little girl whispering and mumbling. Its hard to her what she saying. Maybe you have to mess around with the audio? But i all i could understand was 'Don't do what he says' Another thing is, the girl doesn't sound like baby, or ballora, or any character. Its most likely elizabeth. I don't think this will have abig impact on the loar, just something i noticed.

  • I think that security breach is a before anything happened like the bites and that the name of the crying child could be Gregory because in one of the shots you see to lines on his shirt... I know it is a bit of a stretch but could very well be possible

    Nytro ProNytro ProPred hodinou

  • I have the activity book, my brother got it for me. A few days ago I was bored and looked through it again. I saw the tally’s and wondered, ‘Where do those fit in the lore? Or are they already part of it?’ But now I’m wondering another thing, on page 18-19 there are tally’s and puppet is watching from under the desk, so who are they? Why do they come in with the tally? What do they have to do with it? Or is it a coincidence? Also Matt, I’m kinda convinced that he COULD be the crying child, but in a different form. _Undead_ like his brother, could Cassidy be (forgot his name ;-;) cancer kids mother? How are they related? But loving the FNAF series anyways. Edit: Cassidy also asks, ‘Do you have dreams?’ With a photo of nightmare Freddy. I’ve forgotten if he’s canon or not but if he is, is Cassidy _inside_ it? Either when he’s asleep or awake. I forgot if this has been covered, but I’m just going a tad insane aswell. At the end of the book we see nightmare Chica, is this after the fire? Did Chica ever escape? What does she have to do with Mike, Cassidy and Evan? Also The tally numbers on the grid are: E E E J I. I couldn’t think of anything that could be related, to this though. Maybe initials or first names first letters of spirits? Or something else? I’m not sure, I also think I spelt Chica wrong? Also (again I know, I promise I’ll stop soon, maybe) what do the stars on the front cover have anything to do with? There’s 5, 7, 1, 4 and 2 that you can see clearly (I got two from the bottom left hand corner acting like they were whole), This was the letters: E, G, A D and B. Again, no idea. Also, has anybody tried counting the blood splatters? Putting them in the 8-bit chart? What would that do? I might do that later, but for now I still have about half the video to watch. Another edit: Using E V A and N, you can get other words, Vane: like a windmill type thing, Vena: Blood vessel Nave: the church part for religious congregation. Which could *technically* all be based around the crying child. There could be a vane involved (in his death, the weather is relevant and a vane can also be a spinny thingy, which would include the fan seen early on on camera in game one, or I’m actually crazy now), the vena was what could’ve been cut and the nave was his funeral, his body being laid to rest. I’m gonna start counting blood splatters on each page now, to get something? Maybe?

  • Im a little rusty on the fnaf lore but i think maybye security breach might be the same location as fnaf 2. It sounds absurd but there are a few similarities e.g the play area for fnaf 2 and the play area in fnaf security breach. (also theres the ballpit teaser in security breach but i dont know if the ballpit was in the fnaf 1 location ). If we figure out when security breach is set that would make even more evidence aswell

  • what about the theory about the joker is alive in the arkham series like how the thugs in harley's revenge say batman was carrying out clayface instead of joker and during an interview with jim gordon vicki vale asks were is jokers body and he tells some cops to get the reporters out of his sight and near the radio of the interview theres a poster for cadmus labs and how when batman gets the cure he has it in his right hand but after clayface dissolves into the lazurus pit via generator following an explosion batman is on the floor with the cure in his LEFT hand which most people in the arkham community have been theorizing that joker drank the cure and is secretly alive but if you dont believe me then heres when i break the ice litterly with the Mr Freeze fight when batman is giving freeze the final blows he has a hallucination of joker BEFORE joker dies so joker might be hiding in gotham city well and healthy without anyone knowing.
