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.

    Crying child is Micheal Afton it can only make sense as in Sister Location our character dosen’t feel right because “hint” “hint” flashback to Fazbear Frights with Eleanor and the creepy body removal surgery technically it’s just the same as being turned into an anamatronic which we know from fnaf 6 pizza simulator that the minds of the souls of the children go wild and they can’t remember much of anything as Henry says something about you probably don’t even remember your name...Also Foxybro from recent evidence connects him with phone guy because one he liked foxy two we can disprove the William Afton liking foxy because in the twisted series fourth closet he says he hates Henry’s old anamatronics (even though this is a seperate canon) but also that explains why the mask dosen’t work in fnaf 2 because in the cutscene as foxy he witnesses William Afton kill the children because he goes in and out...BUT THE BIG MIKE DROP IS.........Scott Cawthon dosen’t voice the William Afton recording at the beggening of Sister Location I think it was PJ Hollywood I could be wrong on that name...Well if you want to use this you can or just skip it I guess either one👌

    if you add up all of the numbers which were used in finding Cassidy's name and flip them you would get 47 and then you could get the n for evan so i just finished his video where he was stuck at finding Golden Freddy's name there was a part that said self reflection so that is what i did to get 47

    Ok peeps, I got a theory. So you know the stitch wrath yeah? The stitchwrath could have been “the real jake” doll thing. The “blood” could have been the tomato sauce, and in 1:35 am, the doctor, (forgot his name) took out a doll that he described as “overkill,” with green knees and such, and later on in the teaser, we see that the doll/endo thing becomes the stitch wrath. Well, in “the real jake” story, Margie says herself that, and i quote, “it was turning into a hot mess with all the details she was adding, but...” And in the real jake, we know that the green knees were grass stains. Thats a theory of mine.

    I have a thought. What if old man consequences is telling Cassidy to let go to not only let the purple guy be to burned for his sins, but to also let the crying child's soul rest? Because there is no evidence that the crying child is laid to rest. And if he's still possessing the golden freddy suit, that means he's also in hell with Cassidy and the purple guy. Again, this is just what I've been thinking.

    I do love this theory so much but I am in agreement that somethings don’t fit, for example the drawing of nightmare Fredbear is drawn in red ink, the pen that Mike draws in. If this theory is true then is there something else we don’t know about Mike? Is there something we haven’t found that connects Mike to the nightmares of the crying child? I don’t believe that Mike and the crying child are the same person, the conclusion we’ve ended at seems to be the best one...... hold on... Brainwave, you remember Charlie from the books right? Is there a possibility that Mike and whoever the crying child is are similar to Charlie’s four models? They seemed to have been living at the same time but maybe their father lost the older brother after the events of Fnaf 4 too. There’s some holes in the thought that could be filled but it wouldn’t have enough evidence to support it, unless I’m missing something that is. Just some things to think about I guess.

Then keep repeating this and see what you get. This seems pretty simple but this was just what I think because Micheal Afton kinda must know that his brother is there because of the questions that are there and I can’t really think of any other reason why he would put tally marks.

    Okay. So I've really been cracking down on trying to figure out crying child's name and I think I might be onto something. In Freddy Fazbear's Pizzeria Simulator we get "introduced" to an unknown orange character. Many have come to the conclusion that this is Afton. However I think that there is a huge possibility that it isn't Afton, but Henry. My evidence for this claim corresponds with a previous video where you played off of this idea, so I won't go too much into that. The thing that I want to focus on is the identity of the crying child. If we are going off the idea that the orange guy is Henry then that would make Mike and the crying child his children. In the books Charlie had been told growing up that she once had a twin brother named Sammy who was kidnapped and killed by Afton when they were three. However, by the end of the series we learn that she had been lied to the whole time and she was the one who was kidnapped and killed. Because of this reveal many have written of Sammy as a character believing that he was never real to begin with and was made up only to trick Charlie. But what if he was real. What if Sammy is the crying child? Think about it. Charlie died when she was three and was later rebuilt by Henry. On her gravestone is says that she died in 1983, which is when FNAF 4 took place. Maybe that room is empty because she died earlier that year. Like you said in your video, he could've seen the moment when she was killed, which is why he fears the restaurant. The crying child is also shown to look quite similar to the way Charlie is described in the books and the way she is shown in the security puppet minigame. If this is all true, then we know that the crying child died after Charlie, and maybe when Henry rebuilt Charlie he didn't program her to have any memories of her brother because it would've opened that wound and hurt Henry more than it already did. Now I know that there are plenty of holes in this theory but I also think that it could be true.

    I have a theory. It doesn't have much evidence but I believe that Crying Childs name is Gregory. If you look at the new fnaf security breach trailer and look closely at Gregory's shirt when he is looking at the hundreds of computer screens you can see two faint grey lines similar to the crying childs shirt. I don't have much other info but that's what I have. Another person had a theory that Gregory is a robot that has the same characteristics and name as crying child to lure the embodiment of Glitchtrap/William Afton out so they could finally catch him. Also very little evidence.
