    Check if you inadvertently put an animation event into one of your animations but didn't connect it up to a function.

    Or maybe there was a function and it got renamed, not sure, but it's at least a few things to look at.

    Doubleclick on the animator controller (this one is called Crossfade) and in that window you can inspect the individual states and transitions and and animations to find the callback it is complaining about.

    If you're not familiar with the above systems, there are a LOT of tutorials out there.

    I'm using unity 2020, if anybody else encountered this and needs a tip.

    The red circle contains the button that creates the Event.
    The blue square contains the actual Event that was created. Just right click it and delete(there might multiple events)
    Hope this helps
