Game Theory: Did Reddit Just SOLVE FNAF?

Get Yourself Some BRAND NEW Theory Wear! ► bit.ly/3qwx0AW

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.

    Is the story about the walkie talkie doll not a direct reference to Psychic Friend Fred Bear? In sister location, we clearly see the golden Freddy plushy with a walkie talky of some kind don't we?? Is that story not a reference to that and telling us that someone was talking to the crying child throughout FNAF 4? And if someone really wants to go old school with it, the explanation of the color of the text being different could be explained by the distorted voice to seem like a child Just like in the story That's my take after all this time haha

    His name isn’t Evan. After watching 5900000000 vids I found these names: CC, Crying child ofc, CHRIS AFTON, and SHADOW FREDDY? I found CC from Gacha idk y and I found crying child from a million diff people and I found Chris afton from google safari and ISboth and wiki I think and shadow Freddy from more research on ty google wiki and other stuff but why shadow Freddy????? I thought that as well. But then after thinking a lot I came up with something but i could be wrong or right so every FNaF character has 1 kid or adult in them. So my theory is that 1 kid or adult can only be in 1 animatronic suit so since crying child was in a Freddy suit what if after a while he somehow got into shadow Freddy cuz he was already in his own suit at first then later maybe somehow got in shadow Freddy cuz he was golden freddy at first. I’m still doing research but I’ll get back to this when I’m done. I hope this was helpful in some sort of way

    Yes actually Evan being the kids name makes so much sense. One fact is, why would they even bring UP the fact that the father, "Evan", has a brother named Micheal if it didn't have anything to do with the lore? Scott doesn't just throw random things like that without meaning. And the fact that he HAD to bring up "Micheal" being non-human like is another thing. I rest my case.
