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.

  • I’m convinced that the name Evan for the crying child is not 100% confirmed, but I am also convinced that we can kinda start calling the crying child some other name, for now at least. So for the time being, I’m going to start head cannoning the crying child’s name to be Evan. But only for now.

  • Okay so, there might be a FNAF game that connects to the story with Jake. FNAF 4 and UCN. Allow me to explain. As we all know, Cassidy has the ability to mimic the voices of other characters in UCN. As we all know from FNAF 4, there's Nightmare Foxy in the closet. I'm relating this to the doll in the cabinet and someone using a radio to mimic the voice of a young child. Nightmare Foxy may not be in UCN or have any voice lines, but what if this relates to Nightmare Foxy and the ability of Cassidy copying the voice of other animatronics? There might be some holes in this theory, but I just wanted to point that out.

  • May I propose my theory.. in the new security breach gameplay trailer we see a purple claw like hand at one point and my theory is that this is spring trap. We see when the animatronics are burned that spring traps hands are claw like under all the fur fabric and in the trailer for the new game the claw is covered is something purple. This is just my thinking and not definite but I was also thinking if this is right then this could be another point to William being split like horcrux or another possibility is that at some point in the next game Vanny successfully bring spring trap into the real world once more. Just some ideas.

  • So this is a mini theory for you on why mangle might make static noises, and generally a bit on how these bots function. So my idea is what if the bots feel pain, because mangle has definitely gone through something that would be painful. If the bots feel pain, mangle, if we believe actually is a take apart put back together attraction by the time we start fnaf 2, mangle might just be insane due to pain or stress or both. The static noise is just pure insanity that isn't really words. While I was researching the mangle idea I came up with another one, bad enough damage to the head can cause insanity, or stress, which can lead to insanity. Essentially my idea is, I don't believe in it much, that the character we play in fnaf 4 is insane. Doing that every night is probably stressfull, not to mention an awful head injury. The characters we play could be insane, its why we don't die too.

  • My theory, based upon what you discover in FNAF AR, is that Vanessa is fighting for control of her own mind. As was suggested by Mat Pat, but I came to this conclusion long before he made his theory. But this gameplay trailer solidified it. The person talking in the beginning and the man yelling are William Afton. Why do I know this? I analyzed the voice and compared it to the voice you hear from the FNAF VR minigame. It's the SAME VA! Therefore there will be times she is in control and genuinely wants to help us, but I think Afton will slowly win as she dawns the suit. Showing her full body committance and that she is now fully in his control. I think one of her acts of defiance will be giving Gregory the wrist watch seen in the trailer. Because it has access to cameras in the multiplex, a map, an inventory, and logs. The only way he would have access to this information is if SHE or FREDDY gave it to him. Another thing that suggested a shift in her personality? One, she has the purple nail polish, and secondly... As she watched Gregory from outside the glass elevator her neck twitches subtly. Her lips were partially opened in shock before the neck twitch, but then her body subtly becomes more trained on Gregory after the neck twitch. And when she says they have to get him "Out by morning" it is my thought that either they are going to lose control of their own body to William by that time or she is trying to lure him out by that time. I think there is a clear distinction between "Vanny" and "Vanessa". Vanny seems like a nickname, less formal and playful. While Vanessa is a real name. I think Vanessa is the real her while "Vanny" is a combo of "Bunny" and "Vanessa". Something William came up with. A new name for a new killer. I think we are going to either save her and ourselves by the end of the night or at least try to. But I think William is due to return as a nightmare animatronic. Due to the ending with the hand in purple lighting or Vanessa gets stuffed. Either way it is the rebirth of a killer.

  • I dont know if matpat has talked about this, or if its just not important, but i'll say it anyway. In the trailer for sister location, you can hear a little girl whispering and mumbling. Its hard to her what she saying. Maybe you have to mess around with the audio? But i all i could understand was 'Don't do what he says' Another thing is, the girl doesn't sound like baby, or ballora, or any character. Its most likely elizabeth. I don't think this will have abig impact on the loar, just something i noticed.

  • I have the activity book, my brother got it for me. A few days ago I was bored and looked through it again. I saw the tally’s and wondered, ‘Where do those fit in the lore? Or are they already part of it?’ But now I’m wondering another thing, on page 18-19 there are tally’s and puppet is watching from under the desk, so who are they? Why do they come in with the tally? What do they have to do with it? Or is it a coincidence? Also Matt, I’m kinda convinced that he COULD be the crying child, but in a different form. _Undead_ like his brother, could Cassidy be (forgot his name ;-;) cancer kids mother? How are they related? But loving the FNAF series anyways. Edit: Cassidy also asks, ‘Do you have dreams?’ With a photo of nightmare Freddy. I’ve forgotten if he’s canon or not but if he is, is Cassidy _inside_ it? Either when he’s asleep or awake. I forgot if this has been covered, but I’m just going a tad insane aswell. At the end of the book we see nightmare Chica, is this after the fire? Did Chica ever escape? What does she have to do with Mike, Cassidy and Evan? Also The tally numbers on the grid are: E E E J I. I couldn’t think of anything that could be related, to this though. Maybe initials or first names first letters of spirits? Or something else? I’m not sure, I also think I spelt Chica wrong? Also (again I know, I promise I’ll stop soon, maybe) what do the stars on the front cover have anything to do with? There’s 5, 7, 1, 4 and 2 that you can see clearly (I got two from the bottom left hand corner acting like they were whole), This was the letters: E, G, A D and B. Again, no idea. Also, has anybody tried counting the blood splatters? Putting them in the 8-bit chart? What would that do? I might do that later, but for now I still have about half the video to watch. Another edit: Using E V A and N, you can get other words, Vane: like a windmill type thing, Vena: Blood vessel Nave: the church part for religious congregation. Which could *technically* all be based around the crying child. There could be a vane involved (in his death, the weather is relevant and a vane can also be a spinny thingy, which would include the fan seen early on on camera in game one, or I’m actually crazy now), the vena was what could’ve been cut and the nave was his funeral, his body being laid to rest. I’m gonna start counting blood splatters on each page now, to get something? Maybe?
