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.

    Wait a second,if Cassidy and “Evan” both possessed golden freddy...then that would explain why in UCN when you try to death coin golden Freddy Fredbear comes and jump scares you instead because “Evan” left golden Freddy and possessed Fredbear so he could stop the player from killing golden Freddy!

    I have a Theory that seems like a stretch but hear me out: Tf2 and FNAF are connected. In the tf2 comics, Scout dies and goes to heaven where he meets god. After having a little chat about being "God's gift to women," God decides to give Scout a second chance, saying "See you december 4th, 1987!" This coincidentally was the night of the bite of 87, and the person killed that night was named Jeremy, and Scout's real name is none other than... Jeremy.

    Pat there is something bothering me about the spirits which possess Golden Freddy, Cassidy is a GIRL with long black hair, the vengeful spirit thanks to the face that appears in ultimate custom night has is a BOY with blonde hair and blue eyes, but the crying child is a BOY with brown hair. Of course I know from your past theories that Golden Freddy can be possessed by more than two spirits, but that isn’t my question. All that made me think, who are the two spirits talking in the Log Book? and What if Mike is not the one speaking with red pen but rather some one else I have a ton of questions and so little with to analyze If you read this comment I will be truly happy Thank you for your time

    I honestly think the crying child from fnaf 4 is Gregory. Let me explain. It sounds crazy only going off of one or two clues, but the crying child in fnaf 4 wears a striped shirt, and Gregory (The boy in the statue who sits inside of Glamrock Freddy) is also wearing an identical shirt just like it. These animatronics must also be his friends if he is willingly climbing inside of them and they are supposedly protecting him. The crying child also states quite clearly that they are his friends. However, he had to have seen something that made him distrust them in the first place, and the big brother is obviously making fun of him for something. Why? Because the crying child is scared of the big brother whenever he wears a costume. In the sense of the crying child being Gregory, this would explain why he was afraid of something like that, because he saw an "animatronic" (Vanny) kill someone at a place he thought was safe.
