"Still sad..."

- Crying Child's loading message

The Crying Child is a playable character in "FNAF World". They are one of the only characters who is not an animatronic, with the others being the Paperpals, Coffee, Purple Guy, Scott Cawthon, and Chipper.


The Crying Child seems to be "pixelated" with blocky features. Like from the minigames in the second and third game of the core series, it has black eyes streaming with grey tears. It also has the same crying animation. Its human form is based on the character of the same name in the Five Nights at Freddy's 4 minigames.

Role In Game
The Crying Child is a playable party character encountered in Pinwheel Funhouse or &*___TWRE.

Crying Child's attacks are: Power Song,an white attack which boosts the team`s attack power for an limited amount of time, Armor Song,an white attack which raises the team`s defence for an limited time and finally Gift Boxes, an Yellow attack that can grant the party an extra life if they would ever die from an enemy or boss.

Because of the fact that it doesn't use any real attacks, it's recommended that you use it as a buffing character.

  • Power Song - A white attack that boosts the team's attack for a limited time.
  • Armor Song - A white attack that boosts the team's defense for a limited time.
  • Gift Boxes - A yellow attack that grants the team an extra life and revives them at full health.

As Crying Child

It is recommended to use Gift Boxes first. If you have other characters with Gift Boxes, do Armor or Power Song, especially when your team becomes weak. Pair Crying Child with the Phantoms, as they deal the smallest amount of damage.

Against Crying Child

Use anyone who Jumpscares the enemies. He will not use any of his actual attacks, so he may not pose a threat. Deal as much damage as possible.
