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.

(This is something that my half asleep brain thought of) what if the man who hired Stanley was Micheal? I mean it probably wasn't but um I thought about it and um I mean hes probably not but still 3.

  • What if...Henry Emily has been pulling the strings ever since BEFORE William Afton killed the children and BEFORE anyone from HIS or William's familly died, maybe HE made "a deal with the devil" and made HIMSELF and William "immortal",without William knowing and "Mike" or Michael was the only child of William's who inherited the immortaliy, and maybe Henry IS the "owner" of Fazbear Entertainment ,plus, intended the "deaths" of Michael's children to make him feel "Agony" and kill the children to stuff them to the suits on purpose for their souls to make agony, AND, maybe...Henry promised to "put his children backtogether", HE didn't think that William would survive or maybe he isn't alive, maybe not; Btw,Henry probably is the one who created the Stichwraith and is in it, along with the two kids, it's just a theory, a game....oh wait. By "immortality" I mean that his soul can't leave his body. Also I forgot to mention that maybe William has split personalities and glitchtrap is the other personality and the true murderer,plus the deaths of his family drove William insane. PS:Sorry it sounds like a Rick and Morty rant, btw maybe Evan is Henry's second child,not William's, and is forgotten by Henry and did not inherit his immortality like his sibling , or he's just William's kid and became Shadow Freddy and Glitchtrap is Shadow Bonie triying to manifest himself as a shadow but fails unlike Evan who is a "complete soul" and can do it easier, plus, he is part of Golden Freddy, I think? Maybe Henry has a different name and changed it to Henry, maybe he is the game version of Oswald from the books, can't wait for the next video....I hope you make a video explaining Springtrap's many designs.

  • So, physic friend Fredbear’s eyes are cameras, right? And Toy Chica has those same eyes. Maybe she’s gathering visual evidence. So, what does that mean for Golden Freddy? Do Evan and Cassidy see through cameras in the animatronics? Maybe the reason Golden Freddy can’t move is because the souls are stuck in a computer, only seeing the outside world via cameras in the head?? But hey, that’s just an idea - a game idea! Thanks for reading.

  • Matpatt have you ever considered that Vanny and Vanessa are the same people but with completely different minds like for example Vanessa is the night guard trying to protect us and stuff but she doesn’t remember what Vanny does when Vanny takes over and if you look closely in trailer it seems to be that she doesn’t remember what Vanessa does because if she did remember she would have found Gregory by then but she doesn’t which includes her not remembering what happens of the stuff of what Vanessa did and I got another theory about Gregory if you read the Freddy files you could see Evan saying he doesn’t know his name what if crying child is Evan but since he doesn’t know his name he called himself Gregory which may seem more logical

  • I know this sounds a bit far fetched, but it feels like gregori could be such a big lead to finding out so much more about the crying child cause fnaf 4 is a way that the crying child's way of seeing his recovery, meanwhile gregori is stuck in a pizzeria overnight that has animatronics in it. In a state of panic things start to shift around you, scared about being detected, hoping that you're alright, so couldn't the security guard looking for gregori feel to him like something coming after him since he's in a state of fear? Please remember that this isn't solid facts, of course but keep in mind that it could be...

  • 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☺️
