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.

    Mappat:did reddit just solve fnaf Scott making sec breached:yes but there is more to solve that that Also I have a theory: If foxybro was the only living human in the family could golden freddy be crying child? Cuz hear me out when a human is getting haunted the ghost will either way say ",why" or "it's me" so how I think crying child got into golden freddy is willam afton was stuffing crying child's freinds in suits and then the crying child or williams son saw his father stuffing his friends into suits and said"father what are you doing to them they are my freinds" And then willam looked at him and gave him a concusion and he was in a bed for 5 nights looking at his nightmares And after he deid willam grabbed him and putted him in golden freddy and after willam deid foxy bro went at a job in fnaf 1 after he was in night 4 golden freddy thought that was willam so he tried to get revenge So yeah I think golden freddy is the crying child

    Maybe Game Theorists should do a theory on At Dead of Night. There is a Store room on the First Floor of the hotel, and you can see the symbol for the Society against Evil on the wall. As far as I know, it is only from Escape the Night, so what if there is a connection. If there was any public collab or smth, I had no idea, but if there isn't, then it seems like an interesting clue to start a theory.

    Guys I found the fnaf 4 lore I THINK. Here is my fnaf 4 mini theory. The crying child Is being manipulated by his golden Freddy plush. He wants the crying child to think that all the animatronics are bad and that he's the only good one. the way he made these animatronics in the child's mind is by using the illusion disc. And you may be thinking oh if this is an illusion that out then how come the child dies after being caught by one? see on the side of the bed he's in medical treatment. I think that means you can't really see anything scary cos he has like anxiety and I think he might get a heart attack or something and die. that is all I can explain. I'll try and give you the lore of nightmare but cos it's just been really hard and stressful, but if you can reply to this with the lore of nightmare before I'm able to update this then congrats, and like I said finding the lore of nightmare has been extremely stressful and hard, but I think that nightmare is golden Freddy's spirit. As you can see has a golden top hat and a golden bow tie. That's all I can say for now I don't really have more info.

    so I had a theory a couple fnaf theories ago but I want to say it again just because soooooooooo "I have a theory, what if Cassidy was killed before the crying child. she went on to posses phsycic friend fredbear to keep an eye on william and his children, (which would explain how friend fredbear is able to teleport around) cassidy then starts to feel bad for the crying child and stays with him to help him. after the crying child gets bitten, cassidy tries to help him by by finding an animatronic to share, and desides golden freddy is a good fit. she tells chrying child that she will put him back together(as in sharing a body with him) and when nightmare attacks thats just him getting transferred into golden freddy." sorry not sorry :D

    theory: in the new trailer you see Gregory hiding from vannese the security guard. now remember the first trailer where vanny was saying it's just a glitch and was saying it like she lost his trust .but why would he trust her to begin with maaayybe because she was dressed as a night guard but then glitched out showing her vanny side making him run and hide. and to further back it up at the end she was saying that he doesn't know what going on here. how does she? but I'll just cross it as vannesse is the good side trying to help Gregory out but vanny (her messed up side) is stopping her... BUT HEY THAT'S JUST A THEORY A GAME THEORY.

    I’m pretty sure it’s young Michael afton, don’t forget of the old vids, Just an animatronic Edit: Just like with Charlie. Also my theory of micheal is that he is. 3 times the animatronics, because he was first human working at Circus baby’s diner, then died become purple guy, with Ennard, then died again completely when ennard escaped, he’s alive, died after being scared in attempt of the freeing the souls from the animatronics, died from being in spring lock suit, meaning that there are 2 spring traps, one is William afton, and now micheal afton, and in sister location micheal isn’t dead, in sister location cut scenes of fazbear frights show that spring trap/micheal is alive in the still burnt Freddy fazbear fright, now he is trying to find him before he dies. Anyone who wants to use this info as a Theory, they can, oof.
