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.

    I am not a theorist or anything but this is the first time I'm seeing "Evan" anywhere and I may be biased but I think it could be true. I haven't seen any thoughts of Evan being the crying childs name except for the results in this video. If people were getting super sure it was Evan then I feel Scott would try to use it more and trick us. I may be wrong but that is my idea.

    You ever realize that the Freddy that’s holding Gregory in the new game kinda has some features like the Funtime animatronics or the “twisted ones”. What if in this future there’s a bad ending where the remenant from the old Funtime animatronics were somehow cut off kinda like the 9 tails in naruto and in this ending after defeating vanny the remenant breaks out taking over this Freddy we see and what if he says something like this “Gregory, I am sorry. I didn’t what this to happen but I’ve realized the true intention of my creation. I was built for this and I have to carry it out *locks Gregory inside of his stomach*. Master, (referring to William Afton) I have found the one you have been searching for. I will bring him to you.” Wow that went way outa hand. But seriously Mat you should look into this. Could be a future ending in security breach.

    The Crying Child may still be alive. Purple Guy said he would "fix him". This may mean he was turned into a animatronic child, and he is seen in Security Breach when he looks at the cameras. There are two lines representing his shirt and same skin color, black shirt, and hair. And yes, I may be wrong. But this seems quite reasonable.

    Who else noticed that the new fazbear frights 7 tag along freddy toy and it's description kind of looks like and sounds like the description for lonely freddy from fazbear frights 2?... That's sus.
    Edit : I mean they are both toys that follow a certain kid from someone controlling it ( the father in the story " the cliffs " and the employees in the " lonely freddy " story, ) they are both freddy, they both have a speaker that the person controlling it can hear ( Alec in " lonely freddy " and tyler in " the cliffs " ), and the toys are for kids who don't have any friends. Like in the new story tyler ( the father's kid ) is a lonely kid after his mother died and has no friends at daycare, then they get tag along freddy, tyler goes missing, tag along freddy keeps telling the dad to go to the cliffs and they find him there. So tag along freddy was more like a friend in the story. And in " lonely freddy " is when a teen Alec wants to expose his sister for being a spoiled brat, that backfires and goes in the storage room to cry, lonely freddy comes and tries to befriend Alec and cheer him up. Only to steal his original body. So my theory is that tag along freddy is alec's form of lonely freddy, he felt bad for not being a good brother so when he got a new owner he tried to help. But the father thought he did something to tyler and burned him, then he kept texting him from the watch because he knew where he went. And then when the father finally did what the bear said he found his son. Just my theory though.

    Ok, so I don't think that this will be seen by Matpat or anything but I have a theory on who Phone-guy is, well, more of just a random thought that popped into my head while watching the Purple-Guy song but you got the point. My thought is that the guy talking on the phone is Henry and that he left recorded messages to warn the Nightguards about the dangers of the pizzerias. I literally have no evidence to support this other than the fact that to me it makes logical sense but I think it is a fun concept none the less and if this ever get a video make about it (which I HIGHLY doubt it will) but if it for some reason does get a video made about it I know that the gametheory team could come up with something!

    Idea that I’ve had scene security breach was revealed , what if Jeremy was creating a mask, a rabbit mask like vany. One of glitchtraps requirements seems to be to make a costume. Glitchtrap making Jeremy cut off his own face doesn’t make sense because what’s the point. I know it’s not relevant to this theory but still something to consider.

    Matpat I have a theory, i hope you put into consideration.
    I just watched all the security breach trailers and I just wanna say this. I don't think the crying child is Evan I think he is Gregory from the new fnaf game or is at least a possible friend of Gregory.
    Here's why, in the trailer there is a scene of a child in front monitors. If you turn the brightness up a little he has a striped shirt, and Vanny/Vanessa calls out Gregory.
    Another reason is because in another scene Vanny says," I'll put you back to bed".
    Didn't the crying child is from fnaf four that took place in a bedroom.
    Another thing I'll let you figure out is take a close look at the security guard for the new game, i hope she will look a little furmiliar.

    Theory time for morty ok so I do believe that in the new fnaf game play at the end you see a hand witch you see a purple light and rotten skin/ raisin skin the fingers have pointy fingers made if metal i think because of the rotten skin this may be mike the glowing .ight matches to sl ending he has glowing purple eyes and for the fingers it could be part of the theory ether he's a robot or it resembles what was inside of him before but some might say this is william but that not true william is glitchtrap meaning he would have a soft yellow green suit with round fingers this would prove the theory of each game revolves around micheal a this is just my theory also pleas make a theory on the new game play video thx
