  • Matpat: Goes deep in lore Notch creating the creeper by mistake when the pig model had it's body upright: *sweats nervously*

  • Here's a little theory for thought for you, what if (and im just spit balling here) what if the Creeper is another of the ancient builders and this this is there sarcophagus, a live sarcophagus. Afterall the creeper hyrogliphs are right next to the ankh's of the desert temple. This would explain Mat's theory about creepers staying away from cats.

  • 0:14 No, thats a time relic!

  • Why did ILaward move the comments again?

  • Thanks for that anakin lol 8:24

  • Cool

  • MatPat: "I not going to overthink anything" *Proceeds to overthink everything*

  • 2:09 OMG they made the diamond plate texture from Roblox into a real thing!

  • Matpat: The terrain is a clue! Terrain Generation: *Flying sand*

  • I dont believe that the string should be taken as evidence because it is likely the closest thing Minecraft has to the bandages worn by mummies in the real world

  • Yo I can become a game theory branded Ben 10 sign me up

  • Egyptian me: "chuckles" I'm in dan BOOM

  • Wait... Do you know how the eyes of ender is how you go to the end? Well, what if those eyes could allow the wardens to travel through dimensions and you had to fight them to get the eyes? Maybe they are called the wardens because the difficulty of finding and killing things that are bigger beef cakes than the golem while they are protecting the stronghold at the same time while being able to retreat by teleporting? So I think that the warden could be much stronger with there eyes because they have "theoretically adapted" to use the soul sand to make plants as echolocation sources... What makes them supposedly stronger with there eyes is that they are smart enough to remember a task they were given eons ago and adapt to fulfill it smartly and slickly. So I combat the wardens would take every body on like Thanos did in infinity war. However this theory is a bit of a stretch so it could be half taken literally....

  • I swear, every video game theory puts out on minecraft lore makes it sound like herobrine actually belongs in minecraft, a single builder managed to find the key to infinate life, but at a cost.

  • or, you can say something about my comment ;)

  • With this kind of idea in mind, it does in turn make some sense with how Creepers are one of the only hostile mobs that iron golems don't attack, with them having the same creators; although, surprised you didn't mention that.

  • yeah cool but why am i bad still?

  • 13:18 what about if it is a chicken?

  • What about phantoms, they are scared of cats

  • Dunkey make drama monday on this

  • This theory feels more far-fetched than usual. It's just a series of stretches and loose connections from start to finish.


  • This is for all the people getting recommended this in 2021

  • it’s a creative theory but i don’t think it’s true. It wouldn’t explain why the hero of times skeleton in twilight princess is full grown. great video though

  • I haven’t finished it yet but what if creepers because they are made of tnt where used as mining tools so the builders could mine without being to close but later turned on them probably not true but meh it’s just a funny thought

  • i thought creepers were supposed to be pigs but were mistakes-

  • I've got it the new channel book theory you theorize about books

  • Yeah! It is minecraft TIME!

  • Damn. She got demoted to girlfriend

  • creeper, ah maan

  • *Me sees when it was posted* OMI GOSH!! Matpat can u please explain why they stopped making amiibos **PLEAAAAASSSSEEEEE**

  • why do you use the zombies from plants vs zombie and never do a pvz theory that strikes me as odd i mean there is not a lot of lore in the game but come on your matpat you can work with as little lore as possible and still create great content

  • I like how this comes out after my class finishes learning about ancient Egypt

  • "we're desecrating 8 bit corpses??" no mat pat, we're desecrating 16-BIT corpses get it right

  • I activate monster reborn.

  • Cool 😎

  • Mojang doesnt stop matpat because they like looking smart

  • Matpat literally makes a video on how a knife can win a gun knife Spy mains: seems legit

  • Please keep these vids coming bro they're great

  • E

  • I think the illagers are copying the builders because in the real world many civilizations copied Egypt, I know someone in the renaissance made a glass pyramid. Some places took artifacts from Egypt.

  • Mat pat: I love your Minecraft lore, but I feel that more that holds more of a sad/spooky story grabs attention more.

  • Already bought them

  • i wonder what theories will be made when we finally get archeology

  • can't wait for some updates in the future to ruin some of his minecraft theories

  • Disney: make our best movie a level Square: cool we can make a arc based off the movie, and make elsa a anti- villai... Disney: *DARE TO OPPOSE ME MORTAL*

  • Just gonna say, the merch is lit

  • By the way the security breach trailer came out! It’s on Dawko’s channel so if you could like go over that..that would be cool.

  • ok wait, "its not like jungle temples or under water temples have any real world symbology to them" ,,,, you have done in episode in this series talking about the real world symbology of the ocean temple lol.

  • Yo dunkee

  • 9:43 this is how our own numbers work too. when you want to count higher then 9, you need to add another digit

  • Me: *watching this video* Video: hmm AD same video: SMASHERS ICE AGE

  • If Vindicated well villages but Would l lapis in there head They will drop lapis


  • What mic do you use to make your videos?

  • why does the face matpat uses for his character look like doge?

  • Random thought: Maybe the “Ankh” symbol on the desert temple is actually the symbol of the totem of the undying, they look similar

  • Is mat pat good tho, like he looks terrible when showing off the card holder, like seriously his hair is messed up, his eyes are blood shot, he has dark areas under the eyes, and he is extra pale in that scene too. Go see for your selves 2:32

  • 8:01 uhhhh, what about the only source of green dye being cactus green, which can only be found in a desert?

  • You should do a theory on dream reviving people on the SMP

  • 3:20 as a Brony I feel called out

  • I wonder when he will do a theory on herobrine 🤔🤔🤔

  • Its not an ankh

    • Then what is it?

  • Here's a long theory about fossils, Illagers, and the nether. Ok so a long time ago, There was some monsters. (The origins of the fossils we see in deserts and swamps.) These monsters population was pretty low, but for some odd reason their population exploded a few times, and escaped from just the underground. They terrorized just about everything including the humans at the time. This was around the time people first opened the nether portal. As these monsters destroyed everything in their path, they attacked the massive protections put around the first nether portals and there was a mass break-in. (Slimes, Endermen? And these monsters) People new that they wouldn't want to follow them, and waited for the population of them in the Overworld to lower. Once people did go in with their Netherite armor, they were all wrecked, and the debris of their armor was scattered. (Ancient debris.) People locked down the gates to the nether, unbeknownst to them... In the nether, a volcano was growing. It blew sky high, and shaped the nether we see today. These monsters couldn't stand the heat, and died out. (By the way, the skeletons in the soul sand valley are those soldiers we talked about earlier) In the Overworld, the Illagers, instead of making Ravagers from Villagers... Made them from iron golems. The witch went to swamps because some of those fossils still exist. I also believe that Ravagers may be a combination of the iron golems and the old monsters I talked about. This is still pretty oversimplified. And I will edit this in the future i'm just happy this is written out.

  • Can't believe Matpat roasted Dunkey

  • So I wasn’t the only one who noticed that cut sandstone has a creeped face

  • This is the most logical one so far.

  • Well if creepers are artificially created, why do they spawn in naturally

  • MatPat: “One that I’ve largely ignored up until now is the desert biome” *Shows badlands*

  • Disney like this one seems like a stretch like most of the Mc ones

  • The time is 4:20

  • wouldnt the player be fleischer and joey disney as it sorta seems like joey stole bendy from the player and then made the show grow while covering up the players original involvement? just kinda seems like it would be to me not sure why though

  • Lol Creepers are scard of cats cuz they hiss! As plants they are not very smart and they thought it was one of thiers. :)

  • The ankh imagery on the temples is a little bit of a stretch to me. Anybody else feel that?

  • cough, *deletes a block*

  • Wow, I actually got an ad that was slightly relevant for me. I don't think that has ever happened before.

  • ..dang dunky called out for once

  • I think the cult of illagers worships cats because they saw the builders do it

  • ohhh no he started to make dad jokes...
