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 just remembered the infamous “I'll put you back together.” line, what if the reason William/Glitchtrap is so eager to get Gregory to him is because Gregory is a robot recreation of the crying child. After all, they do have a very similar design. This means he was literally PUT BACK TOGETHER; however, the animatronics are trying to save him due to at least having some kind of knowledge as to who William is and what he does (kill children if that wasn't obvious). This could also mean that the crying child's name is possibly Gregory or at least a middle name, I think this could at least be one of or at least a possible reason as to why Vanny wants him.

    I like how it took us until fazbear frights to figure out that missing children's cases take place in 1985 when in The Silver Eyes book on page 3 chapter 1 it says "What did you expect, that the whole place would be unchanged? A monument to the moment of your departure, frozen forever in July 1985?"

    Ok guys I know this video is a week old but I have theory! So we know for a fact that the mall was being recently built in help wanted and it’s now finished. Now the question comes in, why are we at a mall in the first place? I have a simple yet interesting theory I believe that glitchtrap with all his influence sent vanny to the mall however using his power to get her a job as a security guard that way she won’t have a lot of suspicion towards her when he forces her to kidnap kids and kill them Gregory being one of them but escaping. So glitchtrap comes up with a new plan, let Vanessa search for him and find him but take over again and have Vanny take him! I know it’s a stretch but I honestly think it would be cool! Sry for the long rant 😅

    I've got something interesting. On the Fnaf security breach trailer, there was a person looking at an array of of screens that are all static. But if you brighten the picture, you can see the same stripes as 'the crying child'. I'm not sure if this actually the case though as it was on another platform that I saw this.

    Remember that the books are essentially an alternate version of the Fnaf story So what if the story of blackbird is just a telling of a story where the crying child never dies He lives a relatively normal life, sheltered by his older brother The crying child gets older and eventually gets told the truth, to keep him from having to deal with his fathers mess, Mike gets him to enlist in the military while he deals with the purple guy. Of course this is all just baseless speculation, no evidence supports thisbother then the brother being called Mike. But still food for thought
