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.

Eva... Evan... Could it be, that the crying child is a girl? We had the same problem with "the one you should have not killed". Scot said that it dosent need to be clear from the beginng, it should be know as a little girl or a little boy. So MY theory is that if the crying child is Eva That means that its a GIRL (Ps: Im from poland

In the Security Breach trailer it says “Gregory we’ll find a way to get you out” or something and Gregory was probably the boy in the shot which looks like C.C . I personally think his name is Gregory but that could be aswell.

Either I’m over thinking or what. BUT. The most recent trailer of security breach mentions the boy named “Gregory.” Also notice how the aesthetic of the new game gives off an 80’s vibe if the crying child was the first bite victim in the 80’s does that make this crying child’s name “Gregory” I could be wrong based on the time line and characters. I haven’t done all the research but it hit me weird the time zones at least. It just is a bit weird how security breach looks like the 80’s but the first few games don’t have the same technology as the others. I don’t know 🤷🏻‍♂️

Ok,so mini theory,the tallies r all the nights Michael has survived,before being scooped. He was filling out the book as he went along,maybe while his popcorn was cooking or somtheing,and with the one set of tallies that only has 4 marks,it's at this point where he was scooped,and stuffed with some endo spaghetti,so he wasn't able to "finish" those tallies(note that this includes the games 1-7). Before u say that there was 2 games after that,he just didn't make that last tally because he didn't see it as him finishing the night, ennard was calling the shots so to speak,And yes,I know that this has nothing to do with the crying child's name,but,it's just something that makes sense to me. But,hey,that's just a theory,a game Theory! Please like so matpat might see this

Random theory I have: Micheal afton was some sort of attempt by William to gain immortality. That's why he looks just like him and he can't die. He was either experimented on or created by William. So that he could gain immortality for himself in some way

Hmm. I feel like there's an element missing, but I'm not sure what. But the fact that "Jake's" dad's name is Evan is kinda weird. If the child's name is Evan and his brother is Michael and adult Evan describes Michael (in a way) as his brother, would one of them be fake just like the two Jakes? Just thinking about it kind of makes sense to me. I don't know, what do you think MatPat?
XxMidnightoceanxX 13 саат мурун
Theory! (Please no Hate i’m not sure on this theory to. Also sorry for bad grammar and spelling!) So you all know UCN. Maybe after the fire William was left at the fnaf 6 ruins.Then started to have those nightmares from Cassidy. (UCN) Then MAYBE Fazbear Entertainment was going to all of the previous locations. To take and scan all the remaining circuit boards. Because they are creating a VR game. Fazbear entertainment did say in the intro of Five nights at Freddy’s VR, “we have recreated many of these completely fictitious scenarios(lies) that you've been fed over the last several years, into a hilarious VR Game in the hopes that we can finally move past these childish ghost stories.” Obviously they were trying to cover up what really happened and during the process when they were scanning all the robot circuit boards and import them into the game. They probably came across Scraptrap, and took his Circuit board. In Fazbear frights black bird. During the Stichwraith story, where William was trying to drag Andrew back down with him and not let his soul rest. That showed us that a small part of William was in the robot the Stichwraith. So maybe, parts of William are in different places at once. An example of this is, maybe part of his soul is in Springtrap. Another in Scraptrap. So on. Maybe part of his soul was in that circuit board when Fazbear entertainment took it. That chould explain how William became glichtrap. The last part in the Stichwraith story, Afton became that huge robot field will agony. At the end of the security breach trailer (new one I think.) shows a robotic hand with claws on it but mostly purple. Maybe that in security breach William gets out of Glitchtrap, witht he help of Vanny. He probably got out from different robots filled with agony and soul energy. All being compressed or put together with William mainly in control. That’s probably how that happened. If you want to use the theory PLEASE credit me!! Thanks!

I just remembered the infamous “I'll put you back together.” line, what if the reason William/Glitchtrap is so eager to get Gregory to him is because Gregory is a robot recreation of the crying child. After all, they do have a very similar design. This means he was literally PUT BACK TOGETHER; however, the animatronics are trying to save him due to at least having some kind of knowledge as to who William is and what he does (kill children if that wasn't obvious). This could also mean that the crying child's name is possibly Gregory or at least a middle name, I think this could at least be one of or at least a possible reason as to why Vanny wants him.
King Cin
King Cin 11 саат мурун
I personally do like the idea, but from the information, we have now it doesn't really fit with the story for these reasons. Yes, they do certainly have similar designs if you glance over them. They both have brown hair, but if you really look, you can see that the crying child is iconic for not only his tears but for his brown hair and *black and grey striped shirt,* whereas when we see Gregory, he yes has brown hair, but his shirt is-... Now that is when it hit me. Rewatching the teaser trailers and looking at the design of Gregory, I noticed something. The shirt was blue, yes. That was the thing I thought would debunk this theory but, we have seen on multiple occasions in which different colours were used on the pallet because of different lighting situations, but the shirt was an exact match aside from the blue tint and the fold on the top of the shirt, and I'm not only going based off that. In the teaser, we can hear Gregory crying softly. And what is the crying child known for? Well, it's in the name, he's always crying when we see him. Speaking of his name, we obviously found his name to be Evan and I've gotten somewhat comfortable with the name Evan because when we found the name Cassidy, it worked better cause in *Gaelic* it translated to Curly haired which worked in that case, now the name Evan translated to Gaelic means Youth, youth being crying *Child.* But that doesn't fully mean the idea is therefore debunked. We learned that Circus baby's real name was Charlotte, Chica's name was Susie, So maybe the bot's name was Gregory but it was based on Evan, but it was named differently because nothing could fully replace his child since the child's true spirit was still alive, but wound up in a whole different entity. But something that didn't make sense whatsoever was if we are to believe that Gregory was an Animatronic that was built to be in place of Evan/crying child, then why is Vanny's task to kill/take *HIM* From what we know Vanny was to choose a child target for Afton/Springtrap/Golden Bonnie/Purpleguy/Glitchtrap so why did she go and choose him if he isn't even a human? That question can only be answered by she either didn't want to truly take the life of a helpless child, or she just didn't know. Both are truly possible, but I see the first idea makes more sense because her just simply *Not knowing* just seems too vague and just doesn't satisfy me compared to the content Scott Cawthon would usually include. But the fact that she knows and she just doesn't want to take the life of a child seems more interesting but still somewhat strange. Another thing that makes me sort of touchy on the subject of Gregory being an Animatronic is if it's true we need to find out the identity of him. Right now we're using the fact that Evan/crying child's Soul is in Golden Freddy with Cassidy, so now we need to find out who exactly is in Gregory causing him to have consciousness. I do really love this idea though, we just need more information on Gregory for this and I'm excited to see what's in store for that when the 'Security breach' comes out!! Also, if you actually read my paragraph thanks and props to you!
