Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

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.

    I saw that Reddit post. It seems pretty real. Like I really thought Evan could be his name. It seemed pretty likely to me but this explanation makes even more sense. I just hope this might be the end of Chris Afton... Because like seriously why Chris Afton? There was nowhere even a hint to that name. I've never beaten a fnaf game except for sister location but I love these theory's and the lore of the games.

    How did it William Afton became the killer maybe because he was abused by his father or his mother or he just got so crazy that his wife got divorced or he got so crazy because Sons and his daughter were dead but that doesn’t make sense because I because Michael Afton died after William Afton so it just have to be his son crying crying child and his daughter Elizabeth Afton so those are like three things or four things that could happen when he became a killer. Hope you like this comment this is a big theory for me because I need to know why will are you kills the kids

    after looking at your videos i have the games in a row here have a look: - SL 4 2 1 3 - Also have you ever seen how mike changes his eyes to normal to white in SL look at FNAF 4 when EVAN gets scared by his "older brother" turns out that's not a person that's a corpse when you see in SL the room of EVAN on the mini screen thats a empty room but you might ask how does he see the nightmares well Afton filled the room with gas. When the bite of 83 was happening the machine in the "older brother" it took a mind of its own and put EVAN in freadbears mouth and ending his life. Back to his "older brother" when you get scared form time to time as you notice his eyes are WHITE just like in SL. but why does EVAN fear the robots well after Afton's daughter died to the claw of baby he feared to lose his 2nd kid so he told him that they are killer robots. Afton's wife is...ballora but how after she found out that William was murdering kids she was going to call the police but William wasnot taking any of that so he ends up killing her. Also ballora stands for "Balor". A Balor is a demont hat keeps its eye shut, but when opened it wreaks destruction.

    Weather or not the crying child is or isn't Evan only serves to fill in old lore. He isn't a part of the story anymore, his spirit was released during the happiest day mini-game, leaving Andrew with a suit that can't move, so he learns the teleport thingy and exacts his revenge on William Aften. (I'm not sure about the fact he can't move, but I don't think the crying child would be okay with torturing his dad for all eternity in a hospital bed, giving him horrid nightmares until Andrew is satisfied.)

  106. James Arcara

    James Arcara4 שעות לפני

    I was rewatching the one where you talk about the bite and I realized something. If it wasn’t haunted, then what did Chris/Evan/Crying Child see? Didn’t you say that some kid got stuffed in the suit, and that’s what the Crying Child saw and why he’s traumatized? Maybe the suit WAS haunted, and that’s why he’s scared. If Crying Child is in Golden Freddy, then was it Cassidy? Was Cassidy the one Crying Child saw die and stuffed into the suit? Is Crying Child the first victim, or Cassidy. Crying Child MUST have seen something to be so scared like that as you pointed out, but if he was the first victim, then why would he be so scared? (NOTHING ELSE UNDER HERE REALLY MATTERS SO-) Or, was there ANOTHER child before Cassidy, and Cassidy and that child haunt the suit together? And Crying Child is just a spirit romping around the animatronics. (I’m just pulling stuff together at this point-.) But that probably isn’t true because there is no other gravestone. The last one is Charlies. Also, why is everyone calling him “Chris” if we never knew his name? (Edit 2: I commented before this and asked, the question, apparently “Chris” is a fan name, thank you for whoever told me that!) Another thing, Simon reminds me of Ennard because of its stitching and it looks put together (I just realized that it’s just a picture you found I think so-)
