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.

    Maybe Game Theorists should do a theory on At Dead of Night. There is a Store room on the First Floor of the hotel, and you can see the symbol for the Society against Evil on the wall. As far as I know, it is only from Escape the Night, so what if there is a connection. If there was any public collab or smth, I had no idea, but if there isn't, then it seems like an interesting clue to start a theory.

    Guys I found the fnaf 4 lore I THINK. Here is my fnaf 4 mini theory. The crying child Is being manipulated by his golden Freddy plush. He wants the crying child to think that all the animatronics are bad and that he's the only good one. the way he made these animatronics in the child's mind is by using the illusion disc. And you may be thinking oh if this is an illusion that out then how come the child dies after being caught by one? see on the side of the bed he's in medical treatment. I think that means you can't really see anything scary cos he has like anxiety and I think he might get a heart attack or something and die. that is all I can explain. I'll try and give you the lore of nightmare but cos it's just been really hard and stressful, but if you can reply to this with the lore of nightmare before I'm able to update this then congrats, and like I said finding the lore of nightmare has been extremely stressful and hard, but I think that nightmare is golden Freddy's spirit. As you can see has a golden top hat and a golden bow tie. That's all I can say for now I don't really have more info.

    so I had a theory a couple fnaf theories ago but I want to say it again just because soooooooooo "I have a theory, what if Cassidy was killed before the crying child. she went on to posses phsycic friend fredbear to keep an eye on william and his children, (which would explain how friend fredbear is able to teleport around) cassidy then starts to feel bad for the crying child and stays with him to help him. after the crying child gets bitten, cassidy tries to help him by by finding an animatronic to share, and desides golden freddy is a good fit. she tells chrying child that she will put him back together(as in sharing a body with him) and when nightmare attacks thats just him getting transferred into golden freddy." sorry not sorry :D

    theory: in the new trailer you see Gregory hiding from vannese the security guard. now remember the first trailer where vanny was saying it's just a glitch and was saying it like she lost his trust .but why would he trust her to begin with maaayybe because she was dressed as a night guard but then glitched out showing her vanny side making him run and hide. and to further back it up at the end she was saying that he doesn't know what going on here. how does she? but I'll just cross it as vannesse is the good side trying to help Gregory out but vanny (her messed up side) is stopping her... BUT HEY THAT'S JUST A THEORY A GAME THEORY.

    I’m pretty sure it’s young Michael afton, don’t forget of the old vids, Just an animatronic Edit: Just like with Charlie. Also my theory of micheal is that he is. 3 times the animatronics, because he was first human working at Circus baby’s diner, then died become purple guy, with Ennard, then died again completely when ennard escaped, he’s alive, died after being scared in attempt of the freeing the souls from the animatronics, died from being in spring lock suit, meaning that there are 2 spring traps, one is William afton, and now micheal afton, and in sister location micheal isn’t dead, in sister location cut scenes of fazbear frights show that spring trap/micheal is alive in the still burnt Freddy fazbear fright, now he is trying to find him before he dies. Anyone who wants to use this info as a Theory, they can, oof.

    i think william isnt glitchtrap but was created by fazbear entertainment to control william. first, fazbear entertainment is obiously evil, in fazbear frights there are these new animatronics created by them to kill people, and in fnaf vr tape girl says that fazbear entertainment lied about everything, like their hiding something, also that they fired jermey because he said something, like their secret plan of glitchtrap, also william may be a killer but hes not that twisted, glitchtrap doesn't act like william also when william says i alway come back its different from when he talks in sister locations opening cutscene, theres an overlaping audio, and when glitchtrap says i always come back in princess quest, its that overlapping audio. also in into the pit the main characters dad starts glitching between a yellow rabbit and himself, like hes being controled by glitchtrap. also we get evidence from plushtrap, plushtrap was made before springtrap, so there might be another "trap" out there, glitchtrap, who would be in existence before williams death all the way in fnaf 6. finally in the trailer the voice at the beggining was glitchtrap, and he didnt sound like william, then we hear the voice in the middle of the trailer saying, "you will bring me what i want" thats also glitch trap and he sounds nothing like william. i also the nightmares were created by fazbear entertainment to kill michael/crying child. first in out of stock we get conformation that plushtrap is owned by fazbear entertainment, so why not the other nightmares, the nightmares are real, because if they werent and were just illousions then they wouldnt kill you, like how the phantoms dont kill you, you even see the blood on the screen when you die, so maybe fazbear entertainment sent them to kill michael, because william was disobeying glitchtraps instructions. maybe after the missing childrens incedent, out of guilt, william made the funtimes to kill fazbear entertainment, but they hacked them to kill his daugter who became baby, then later is wife who became ballora, and now they sent the nightmares to kill michael because he saw his friends, his sister and then mother die.
