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.

Although the theories of the crying child’s name being even could be a sign that the Evan in the story could be the crying child when he is older in a different well..... universe or timeline where he did not die from the bite or the bite never happened. The true name of the crying child was found. Or at least chosen to be the name of the crying child. There is no lore behind it. At least not that I know of. But there is a debate on weather the crying child is Michael and Michael is actually Terence afton or mike being mike and the crying child being either Terence or Christopher afton. But it has been chosen/proven that the crying child’s name is Christopher afton (or Christ afton for short).

I am kind of convinced on the name Evan. My reasoning for why I’m not completely sure is this: If C.C (Crying Child) was bitten, and died to posses Golden Freddy, how is he alive to be in the army or even talk to Jake? It just doesn’t fit in my opinion. I know that this kind of thing can happen easily in these books, but it just doesn’t seem right. The fact that Mike, is very similar to Mike in the book, convinces me more however. In the book it says that “Evan” does not have any other living relatives: William Afton is known to be dead to “Evan”, he knows that Clara Afton (his mother) is dead and is most likely possessing Ballora, although he doesn’t know that. He definitely knows that Elizabeth Afton is dead as he saw it happen. That is the whole reason why he had nightmares in the first place. I’m just not fully convinced on the name “Evan” so far, because the Crying Child would be dead and possessing Golden Freddy, not in the army speaking to his kid through a doll named Simon in the hospital. I’m not convinced.

Bad probably wrong theory time: Okay, so the 4 things the crying child say in order are "I can hear sounds", "It was for me", "I can't see" and "I'm scared" and what I have come up with for that is... (I'm abbreviating the questions) For ICHS is page 75 which has "Does he still talk to you" with the picture of psychic friend Fred bear on it. For IWFM I have page 103 which has "the party was for you" on it. For ICS I have page 59 that says "Can you see me". Finally, for IS I have page 41 which says "Do you have dreams?" with a picture of a nightmare animatronic on it, which would be very scary for him. And With pages 75, 103, 59, and 41 if you put them in the foxy 8-bit letter graph, you get the letters E, V, A, and D. but if you reverse them, you get the name, Dave. Now I have no idea if this is right, but it's the first time I actually got a viable name out of any numbers I've put into it. And the thing with reversing it also seems a little random. But this is just a little head theory and way made for fun. Hope I was able to successfully explain what I did and it makes sense.

They almost got it right but as confermed in the real jake story Evan dies In a car crash while Mike dies in the fnaf 6 fire so it would make sence the one that william remade as a robot can survive their "guts" being riped out. So this means that Evan is the old brother while Mike is the 83 victom, can't change my mind

For me I believe Security Breach is going to be a bit like FNAF 6, tying loose ends in the lore for example with the 15 foot scrap bunny that Afton possesses after blowing up, that could be the hand at the end of the security breach trailer. This also can be supported by the fact that the game has been delayed but not the book series. So I think security breach will be revealing a lot of pieces to the lore so when the game comes out be sure to keep an eye out because I believe this game is going to be a big turning point in the series
Milan Өдрийн өмнө
Basically what I’m trying to say is that well Evan is a good find and I believe we as fnaf theorists should go off it. Even tho Matt you made a very good point how it’s not exactly precise, Scott may reveal it soon like he did with the name Cassidy. I think that we have tried everything in the log book and that the loose ends will be tied up in security breach. If Evan isn’t the name for the crying child then it is definitely weird that Evan is featured in the book with an older brother named Michael who seems not human. Further more this is in a book that should have come out after security breach if the game was released in December so it’s definitely a good base to go off with and I commend the Reddit user that came up with it

@Knut Engwall the gameplay of FNAF 4 almost perfectly mirrors FNAF 1, and you can faintly hear Phone Guy during thr fnaf 4 nights. Michael is also basically confirmed to be FNAF 1's protagonist. So its not outright confirmed, but it is heavily implied that FNAF 4 is Michael's dream.
