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.

Something that has confounded me since FNAF 3 was the absence of Jeremy as a Phantom (I mean, he IS the most aggressive of the 5). He should, yet he isn't. It's almost as if his paranormal existence and all his agony... is _somewhere else_ , I mean, is there one last machine still working? And if so, what is it? One idea could be that he could be mixed into Toy Chica, although due to the nature of how Fazbear Ent. took parts from the 79-83 models and used them in the Toy's construction (that's how the Toy Animatronics became active at night), it would be likely that parts from a specific animatronic and put them into their to-be counterpart (ex. W. Freddy to Toy Freddy, W. Foxy to Mangle, and so on), and also, the fact that there is a secret compartment in FNAF 1; between the East and West Halls, the Office, and the Main Dining Room, they wouldn't have made it like that, unless they were caging *something* and trying to (rather expensively) hide it. This may be a paranoid thought from the mind of a complete moron, but hopefully you consider it.

Many people believe that his real name is Norman, as the file name for the bedroom in FNAF 4 is NormanBedroom. Some people refer to him as Chris, however that's a completely fanmade name. Many theorize that the Bite Victim is Michael Afton.

I personally think that jake is instead the name of the bite of 83' victim. With the whole 'father communicating with a walkie talkie', the brain injuries, and the fact that jake is the one who dies and inhabits the stitchwraith with andrew. I think the reason that evan and micheal (in the books) are mentioned as brothers may be a parallel with the fact that william and micheal are both portrayed as purple and its merely showing a connection between the two but that is a BIG stretch.
Lil ol Lemon
Lil ol Lemon Vor 7 Stunden
Another solution as to why Evan and Micheal are portrayed as brothers may be because of the fact that Jake (in the books) goes on to possess the doll (Simon) which is portraying his father Evan. Once again, however, this is quite loose.
Lil ol Lemon
Lil ol Lemon Vor 7 Stunden
However, this theory similarly to the evan is the crying child theory (as in the one using the log book, not this one) seems wrong once again. Certain parts of it fit but then there's the explanation i gave in attempt to explain the connection of Evan and Micheal and why they are portrayed as brothers. Some pieces fit but some are very loose.

This is a random idea, but what if the child’s name is John. Both Evan and Jake are a form of the name John. Plus, John was the name of an important character from the first few novels. In fact, John was the main POV character for about 3/4 of the Third Closet. Idk though.

Its literally impossible for him to be Gregory. It takes place decades after the 80s, and literally the only evidence for the theory is his striped shirt, which isn't even the same color as Crying Child's.

Matpat in fnaf 6 simulator we hear Henry in the ending on the call speaking to the animatronics that are trapped and he says "Elizabeth my daughter if you can hear me" so Elizabeth that is baby is not one of the aftons but one of the Henry's

Liv_Gubbins Vor 2 Tage
In MatPat’s video, he discussed a Reddit user that found Evan as a possible Crying Child name. I dug deeper into the names of everybody we know that is important in the Afton family. Evan name meaning: Evan is a Welsh masculine given name derived from "Iefan", a Welsh form for the name John. ... Other languages also assign meaning to Evan as a word or name. It is related to the Gaelic word "Eóghan" meaning "youth" or "young warrior," and means "right-handed" in Scots. John name meaning: John is an ever-popular name. ... The name John is derived from the Hebrew Yohanan, meaning “graced by God.” Origin: John is a biblical name, first appearing in its Hebrew form in the Old Testament. William name meaning: English: from the Norman form of an Old French personal name composed of the Germanic elements wil 'will', 'desire' + helm 'helmet', 'protection'. Elizabeth name meaning: What Does Elizabeth Mean? The name Elizabeth is a biblical name of Hebrew origin. Its earliest origins can be traced back to the Old Testament of the Bible, where it was defined as “God is my oath” in Hebrew. The most popular reference to the name in the Bible is in the New Testament as the mother of John the Baptist. Michael name meaning: Michael was first derived from the name Mikha'el, meaning “who is like God?” in Hebrew. This rhetorical question was posed to reiterate no person was like God. ... Origin: The name Michael is of Hebrew origin and means “who is like God?” or “gift from God.” It is found in the Old Testament, notably in the Book of Daniel. What this all entails: The children’s names seem to have a constant bible religion of HERBREW. That pattern most likely repeats for C.C’s name. John is probably the name. Evan could possibly be Glitchtrap’s real name. The body of Glitchtrap looks very similar to a costume. Therefore, Glitchtrap’s real spirit inside him, besides William, is Evan. I mean, it makes since Glitchtrap is like another version of Spring Bonnie. Golden Freddy is pretty much Fredbear. Therefore, the many spirits inside Golden Freddy, could be the same inside Glitchtrap. It might be because they were the first animatronics to debut, or that they were just COSTUMES. Hmmm that sounds familiar. RIGHT Glitchtrap looks like a suit.According to Wikipedia (Yeah I’m that desperate) “It is speculated that Glitchtrap was the suit William Afton used to lure and kill the five children that would go on to possess the animatronics, and not the Spring Bonnie springlock suit that he would later die in. It's also possible Glitchtrap was one of the temporary suits mentioned in FNaF 3.” The weird thing is though, that Glitchtrap doesn’t look like SpringTrap. According to Fandom: “In fnaf vr we're introduced to Glitchtrap, and if you look closely he has 5 fingers. So could The Glitchtrap animatronic be Spring-Bonnie(which would become Springtrap). If you need proof look at the fingers, and suit color. At the end of Fnaf VR Glitchtrap acts alot like how Afton did when he lured children away.” Also in FNaF VR we are introduced to a “Rebranding of Fazbear Entertainment”. Because Glitchtrap was rebranded, and he re-made himself. I have a tiny tiny theory that he glitched into the tapes and tampered with what she said. It might be wrong, but that’s okay because it’s just a theory. A game theory!!! 😅😅😅🤣🤣🤣😎😎😎 Okay but seriously we need to talk about Scott’s website. The conversation sounds like she is hypnotized or something. Here is the conversation if you don’t have it already: Stay the course. I will. Focus on my voice. I will. Don’t let anyone lead you astray. I won’t. Have you selected one? I have. She just keeps repeating what Glitchtrap WANTS to hear. I think that he hypnotized her with his Glitchtrap madness. If he hypnotized William, then Evan could be his other victim that was lead astray, then told secrets about GT.

To be 100% honest, I'm still not entirely convinced that crying child and Michael are two separate people. I spent so long. We all spent so long sure that they were the same character. I would need to go back and rewatch the video on that, but I seem to remember the theory that "solved" that also creating more holes in the lore. Which, with this franchise it's near impossible to fix any holes without creating more holes, but that one felt like it created more holes than it filled imo. I don't know. I'm no theory expert.

I'm currently on a FNAF Game Theory marathon, and while watching the Sister Location theories, MatPat mentions Henry's son's name is Sammy. And if the theory MatPat had made a while ago saying "Mustard Man" is Henry being true. Then, Henry would therefore have 3 children: Michael, Charlotte (Charlie), and crying child, which we now know as Sammy and not Evan
