Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ► bit.ly/3qwx0AW
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.

    scot watching this be like: wow you've solved 1 percent. and what if Glitch trap is from multiple realities and Evan Afton or as kids call him Chris Afton he's Glitch trap but for Chris Afton or Evan Afton already knew this would've happened and he didn't want to be forget so he traveled to this universe to make it all happen again what if the Aftons are in different realities too.

    The crying child is Chris Afton it’s because Mike had a little brother called Chris and Chris got all the love Michael nothing and it was going to be Chris birthday and Michael will scare him and pull a prank on him to put his head in the animatronic mouth and yeah that is how Chris died he comes out in the nightmare one bc he has nightmares and they are real so after that Elizabeth died of circus baby and then Clara died and then William killed th original fnaf kids and then stuffed them into the suits and then the souls where chasing him and then William found the spring tap suit and went inside and then we got spring locked and that is how he died then Michael got scooped by ennard and then he used circus baby voice bc he can change voices and then Michael got scooped and ennard went inside him and yeah and then if you see security breach if u see the kid you can see the lines in the boy shirt aka as Chris Afton and that is all I have hope this can work☺️

    I’m thinking that the crying child is Gregory from the new game, if you look at the shirt you can see that it has the two signature light grey stripes that crying child has, and at the very end of the trailer you can see the hand of one of the nightmare animatronics, and the only one who could see those was crying child, so that’s my main theory right now

    MATPAT the new security breach trailer cm out it starts out with you seeing vannys face getting closer to the camera then you see the new animatronics I the background you can hear slight music in the background and to me, it sounds like balloras song after you see the animatronics you see someone looking at what seems to be a lot of cameras and if you look at the person very closely you can see he is wearing a black shirt with two white stripes who I think is the crying child and he says a name he says "Gabriele, Gabriele we need to get out of here" which I think he is talking to someone else( i don't know who he is talking to) but I think the crying child never died. what if he was in a coma for all those years Afton was trying to wake him from his coma

Someone says that one of the twins had been taken 500 years in the future while the other one stayed at the same timeline when they got separated. We don’t know much and I’d really like to see you make a theory vid about it!

    I think that the crying child is controlling nightmare Fred bear in custom night( the golden one) his father made illusions of the animatronics but Fred Bear says he is very real in his jump scare. If you listen to his jump scare sound carefully you can hear a small high pitched voice talking along with Fred bear. Also the nightmare animatronics speak like they are real. Nightmare Freddy says he is remade like he is now real. If that is wrong how about this, Cassidy gave the crying child life in nightmare Fred bear to get revenge on his father William afton for creating something that killed him. Like so mat pat can see

      Another theory is that mangles friend attached to it is endo-01 from FNAF1. That is why in mangles custom night jump scare lines you can hear a faint male voice( endo-01) and a loud female voice that comes from mangel. Mangles voice is louder because her voice box is intact. Endo-01’s voice box is very damaged. So mangel is a female and endo-01 is a male. The real question is who’s endo skeleton is that. Maybe golden Freddy?

    I notice that you say in your five nights at Freddy‘s three you say William Afton was springtrap but it’s Michael Afton because after the fnaf 3 location burned down he says “farther it’s me micheal,” and Michel is mistaken as purple guy. Purple guy had three children baby is Cassidy, William is purple guy, micheal is springtrap. So William is the one in costume night

    There is a connection. From what I’ve heard, the puppet in the book seem to be controlled by some sort of walkytalky, just like in fnaf 4. in a way, both the crying child and the cancer child are both dying. The cancer child from cancer, and the crying child from a bite wound. Maybe there is someone in the fnaf 4 game named Evan. A friend you meet in the minigames you Play before the Night Starts. It seems like there isn’t one, but I feel like it would be worth looking in fnaf4 again? Because strangely enough both the golden Freddy puppet and the ‚evan‘ puppet Try to help in situation with NO good ending. This is my theory

Batmans parents dying, bruce Wayne becoming batman and almost killing the joker, robin being turned into the joker at some point, are all just the thoughts and fantasies of the Joker. He finally get’s the spotlight and even kills batman and super man in the comics if i’m correct. Maybe I’m totally wrong, but just shot through my mind. Great vids btw! Keep it up!
