  • my theorie the creeper came from a land far away froma desert and some people made an experiment including tnt and one day a prototype of a crepper escapes from an experimental building and goes to a desert far away ofc the people from the desert doesnt know what the crepper is by then and they think that the crepper is a god they named the creeper hence the hissing sound when it explodes then one day a pig accidentally goes to the places where the crepper have traveled and gained a virus

  • 4:57 I think they chose the Ankh because they would have to make a larger structure to fit the Eye of Horus, not to mention because of Minecraft's blocky nature, it's easier to recognize an Ankh than it is to recognize an Eye of Horus.

  • Idk if anyone else agrees but in the new update of minecraft they added creppy new sounds to the nether and when you go to a certain part of it you can hear a man screaming followed by a sound of the wither. I think that he was right ,the ancient race of builders created the wither and the rest... you know

  • also if you wanted to know the original designer of the creeper, notch, said that the creeper in made out of leaves. so you were very close. But even still, there are leaves around the nile soooo yes

  • Hey MatPat did you know Phantom is just another word for ghost right and when you talked about the ancient builders and how they died i thought that maybe some of them got turned into phantoms, but hey that's just a theory a GAME THEORY!

  • Can I quick mention how Iron Golems don't attack Creepers, Creepers don't attack villagers, but they attack you? Maybe they were the Builders way of getting rid of the zombies while they were away but they confused you for the zombies?

  • [Theory] What if the Totems of Undying and the Iron Golems are related in some way? Or, alternatively, what if the Illagers are trying to create a Golden Golem to combat an iron one?

    • Now I want Golden Golems. That sounds epic if they could be implemented in a way that makes sense. Maybe an upgrade to the Iron Golem? They could have less health since Gold is weaker, but do more damage, and move/attack faster.

      Robert SmallsRobert Smallsวันที่ผ่านมา
  • I recall earlier on the villagers shunned the illagers cause of their experiments, and the villagers were once descendants of the ancient civilization who lost their building abilities over time so maybe the illagers wanted to follow their steps.

  • Guys, Think about. Continuing with the theory that the Ender Dragon enslaved the now known "Enderman." And Pillagers and there models are very similar to Villagers, RIGHT? Well. I am wondering if the past Enderman (human form/any other species execpt Endeman) built the *Mansions* so the *VILLAGERS COULD LIVE THERE!!!* and that ladies and gentlemen concludes my suspicion that pillagers are old villagers corrupted by the Ender Dragon!

  • minecraft lore: some people built some stuff some time ago but they're gone now minecraft lore according to fan theories: *THESE PEOPLE USED DARK MAGIC TO TURN VILLAGERS THEY KIDNAPPED INTO RAVAGERS AND WARDENS ARE MADE OF SOULS AND WITHERS WERE FROM EXPERIMENTS WITH SOUL SAND AND THE SYMBOLS ON DESERT TEMPLES ARE THE ANKH THE SYMBOL AND CONTINUITY OF LIFE AND CREEPERS ARE SCARED OF CATS BECAUSE THEY WERE MADE BY A CIVILIZATION THAT TREASURED CATS AND THE ILLAGERS ARE EXPERIMENTING WITH ETERNAL LIFE AND THE "ANKHS" ON DESERT TEMPLES ARE RELATED TO TOTEMS OF UNDYING AND THE ILLAGERS ARE LONG LOST MEMBERS OF THAT ANCIENT CIVILIZATION OR IMITATORS OF THE ANCIENT CIVILIZATION BECAUSE THEY HAVE A TRIBUTE TO JEB'S DEAD CAT AS A STATUE IN A MANSION THAT IS TOTALLY NOT AN EASTER EGG AND THEY HAVE TNT IN THE MANSIONS*

  • Here's my theory (it's pretty bad) flubber is a precursor to minecraft. Doctor Phillip Brainard(Robbin Williams) trained the ancient race to rule the earth while he tweaked and continued to design flubber. Flubber, after the extinction of the ancient race, evolved to become the slimes. Slimes already look quite similar to flubber but it goes deeper than that. The main trait of slimes is that they break apart into separate slimes, who else breaks apart into multiple parts keeping full sentience in each part... Kirby but also flubber. I rest my, very long, case.

  • For a Video a Year ago. And some stuff of us Enders. Surprisingly. You Thinking Enders & Humans have a Common Ancestor is Fact. Except for the Origin of why these Enders are here, and why hasn't Master Mojang Studios not added Us Enders yet... The Origins of the Kind I took form is Sadder & Darker, a Wither not was the Problem. But was Extraterrestrial in Origin, the Problem.

  • Matpat I did some exploring through the languages and when I put on the pirate language I found out this. The enderman is referred to as the tall man I found that out the Enderpearl is called Tall mans treasure and but then, I looked at the chorus plant and the chorus flower they had the name Tall one's flower and Tall one's tree. Then I looked at the cracked chorus fruit and the chorus fruit and their names are Tall one's fruit and baked tall one's fruit, and then I looked at the enderman egg It said Enderman cackle fruit. But my point is the chorus stuff may be a plant that was invading the end, something the ancient builders took with them as an invading plant, and then the plant maybe got mutated or something to then become the chorus things is this possible in any way? And then i found another interesting thing about the nautilus shell, their named Sea beasts shell just thought it might be interesting.

  • Theory: the minecraft world are nightmares, every time you die, you wake up at spawn. The reason why you got to the place you die you see your items, is because your still in a dream, the endermen are Steve’s from past lives trying find out how to get to the end, but they find you scary, due to their vision is strange in spectator mode. When you kill the dragon, you get freed from your nightmare, you then are transitioned into a dream
