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

  3. Rootbeerking 28

    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!

    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*

  10. Dylan Bosley

    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

  11. The Mouse

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

    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....

  14. Silver eyes

    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.

  15. Nipsianatieli Oliveira

    or, you can say something about my comment ;)

  16. Michael Chapman

    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.

  17. ethan fonck

    yeah cool but why am i bad still?

  18. Sam_Sav

    13:18 what about if it is a chicken?

  19. killcharge

    What about phantoms, they are scared of cats

  20. Spine Apple

    Dunkey make drama monday on this

  21. Giltac

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

  22. Slowing Sphere


  23. Arvrxx

    This is for all the people getting recommended this in 2021

  24. Hyrum Benson

    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

  25. Carmelium Falcon

    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

  26. Blackylackie

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

  27. Paul Gonzales

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

  28. Devalino Hizkia Pradipta

    Yeah! It is minecraft TIME!

  29. Notorious Donkey

    creeper, ah maan

  31. cutsey unicorn :3

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

  32. ljtheone

    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

  33. FoxyMaster1206

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

  34. Noodlehed

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

  35. Frozen Quasar

    I activate monster reborn.

  36. Mr Beast

    Cool 😎

  37. Anabelle Esguerra

    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

  39. Compfy_AJ

    Please keep these vids coming bro they're great

  40. team romeomineYT


  41. Walter Josephson

    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.

  42. Snipeageddon

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

  43. ken kaneki

    Already bought them

  44. MANI

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

  45. Cassimir Husenia

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

  46. Nyla Jereb

    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*

  47. Mr. Jazzhandz

  49. Zach Jones

  50. Tuffle Baby

  51. Gsuave

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

  55. Craftyisamongus

    What mic do you use to make your videos?

  56. the doby kids

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

  57. Anda Dong

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

  58. Aiden Weigum

    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

  59. Awes

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

  60. ZebraGuy

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

  61. C64 Striker

    3:20 as a Brony I feel called out

  62. Little Vessel

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

  63. ninjabo 01

    Its not an ankh

    1. rigbyme

      Then what is it?

  64. XTreme

    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.

  65. Remy Mabboux

    Can't believe Matpat roasted Dunkey

  66. Asher VanTassell

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

  67. Eric Clapton’s Robot Pilot

    This is the most logical one so far.

  68. TLP Games

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

  69. Liam Waselko

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

  70. kingstonj

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

  71. Alexis Bagacina

    The time is 4:20

  72. Nulldas

    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

  73. Sammy Lawrence

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

  74. Gondorf5

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

  75. Baki Hanma

    cough, *deletes a block*

  76. Martin Atze Jensen

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

  77. Lucaknight

    ..dang dunky called out for once

  78. emerboy95

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

  79. Metin Semir

    ohhh no he started to make dad jokes...
