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.

    Make. A. Theory. On. Little nightmares. I don’t care if it is about the 1st game, second game, or both. PLEASE make a theory on little nightmares. The game is just asking for there to be a theory. There are unanswered questions like what is six’s goal, why are there monsters, who are some monsters that hold mysteries to their origin (The lady). Do humans grow and eventually become the monsters. Why do the monsters want to kill the humans. What is up with the tv people? What is up with the tv powers. Is there something going on that’s darker than we even imagined?

    With GODZILLA813105 I think why they pick foxy with the magazine, is because Michael’s mask is foxy and is known that foxy is his favorite anima Tronic. Also you said that the person making the marks is Michael because they are in red marker.

    I find it interesting that the crying child's answers are linked to a choice of numbers. What if you need to connect the tallys to the questions/answers. I don't know how one would go about doing that, I dont have the book but it was somthing I thought of and wanted to share.

    Hey, just realized something. So basically, y'know how way back when Matt discovered that the original Fredbear and Springbonnie were very dangerous? Well, didn't Henry make those? And if he did, and it ended up with the death of Evan, then wouldn't when William is trying to murder kids, he would go for his ex-business partner's child for revenge? I don't know, just a thought.

    hey game theory! in the new security breach trailer, you see a boy (“gregory”) looking at a bunch of security monitors. if you brighten up that image, he is wearing the exact same shirt that the “crying child” wears. i don’t know if this is important to the overall storyline, but i found it interesting!

    Well some people call his cc short for crying child and other people call him Chris and also after William died Michael got a job you guessed it circus baby entertainment and he got killed by the scoop and I think that he got adopted by Henry.

    okay so in a previous video you made the theory of what if the Crying Child was of the Emily Family, not the Afton with Crying child being Charlotte's brother. Charlotte only had one brother; Sammy, her twin. We never see Sammy in the books from what I know. I only have the first one as a graphic novel and guess what? Her old childhood room looks a lot like the bright pink one, pink bunny and all. It's a bit different, likely changed as time went by, but it looks quite similar. I just thought it was kinda interesting. I am probably missing a lot here though.

    If the crying child's name is Evan then that is very interesting since Cassidy and Evan share Freddy's body and I have friends named Cassidy and Evan and they are married to each other. It's weird how that happens

    okay hear me out, so Elizabeth and Michael are both biblical names so I thought maybe the crying childs name is too. and before that I was looking at the cross word and if you notice it says "WHAT IS YOUR NAME" and "WHO ARE YOU" but in between those two there are the letters SSMYIT so it thought I'd try to unscramble it. So I thought maybe he is trying to say "It's my" but that would leave out an S and doesn't really make sense so then I thought "It's Sym" possibly short for *drum roll please* Symon and maybe due to the brain damage or him being young he didn't really learn to spell and mistook an i for a y or maybe it's just spelled differently but Simon is a biblical name meaning "he heard" and seeing as he can't see and can only hear I thought there maybe some connection to like how we confirmed cassidy's name

    Hey Matt Patt! I have something that might help you a bit. Go to the trailer in security breach. If you watch it through you see multiple characters. When the one kid is looking at the computers, he has two stripes on the back of his shirt.... just like the crying child. Now go to the time 2:04 or to the Time where it says 2021. If you pause it when it first goes to that scene, You see a face and a layout of what looks like a mini game. And the face looks like a bunny. Might be nothing but I thought it might be worth looking into...
