      @Jacob C Maybe but the builders might have done what the Mongols did which was in cities that were walled off and hard to capture. They would fling infected corpses into the walls of the cities and then let the disease spread,So the society that they were trying to usurp would be significantly weaker That probably is what happened with the pigman of Minecraft

      @Reijek I think they had the virus in them already, I think it’s a fungal infection, something that was dormant until it reached different conditions like the overworld, in a past vid he talks about how viruses in real like cancer actually do that and how a hot place like the nether would be more resistant to disease but somewhere cooler and moister on the other hand….

      We know that Steve, and therefore probably the ancient builders too, are skilled enough in alchemy to cure the plague. It's not a stretch to infer that the ancient builders may have been able to... "Nudge"... the plague in the right direction.

    One thing he didnt mention: the difference in portal size in the original game vs legends, legends shows a massive scary portal that infects the land around it, while in minecraft its just a small lowly construct with a small amount of the ground changed, whatever was left of the piglins when the builders came through wasnt some mighty army, it was probably a small remnant of resistance that the builders slaughtered.

      So so so the um the frickin abandoned portal things I forget what they’re called the ones with gold and chests and stuff
      They’re bigger than your average Nether portal, and they’re surrounded by netherack (I forget how to spell it) and magma
      I guess it’s possible they just placed the blocks there for decoration, and I really like the implications of what you said (from a lore standpoint, not from a ‘hehe yes I love seeing innocents gets murdered’ one), but I figured it was worth pointing out
      I know portals can be made rly big as long as they’re kept as a rectangle, and I wonder if the nether blocks surrounding the old portals are due to the fact that they’ve been around so long, and no matter how long you play the game it’s just not as long as the old portals have likely been around, so you’d probably never see the spreading yourself
      Idk just food for thought

    A small, very simple detail in Minecraft gameplay could further prove this theory. And it's depending how much you love building. One word: saplings. In the overworld, you can get a sapling of any tree, bring it to your base and grow it there. However, for wood from the nether, it's different. Once you chopped down a “tree” for its crimson or warped logs, it's never gonna come back. It doesn't drop a sapling or a seed to grow a new one, it's a one-use object. Which means if you are farming them on mass, you are destroying entire ecosystems, erasing forests from existence for a couple of stacks of wood.

      They are renewable though, but they are mushrooms, not trees, so they don't grow separately. Mushrooms grow from mycelium, so in the nether's case nylium. Also, mushroom hrow SO fast irl, so I wokldn't be that worried about the nether mushroom. I'd be more worried about the warped fungi taking over the nether since the hoglins don't eat that. Striders do, but I get the feeling they aren't enough to keep it at bay.

  • Futile Task
    Futile Task 3 ай бұрын +198

    Hey, So I have been watching all your theories about Minecraft, and it has started me to wonder about the person we play as in the game after all these events have gone down.
    As of right now, there are currently nine default skins in the game and are named as follows. Steve, Alex, Zuri, Sunny, Noor, Makena, Kai, Efe and Ari. If we take these skins to mean they are the official characters of Minecraft, then the obvious question becomes where did they come from. You seem to imply with your theories that Steven and the other eight characters are descendants of the ancient builders, but I have a bit of a problem with that, for there is nothing in the game showing where we as the player comes from. Now this could be something that Mojang is planning to add later, like a village full of builder descendants that you came from, but I have two ideas that might actually be more in line to the lore you have presented thus far for Minecraft.
    Now idea number one is rather basic, that being that Steve and the others are all children of villagers who for whatever reason are born with both the resemblance and the gifts of the ancient builders, and thus they were sent off on a grand adventure to discover the secrets of their peoples long lost past. This idea though I admit is weak, as one it would have to be an extremely rare chance for such a thing to happen, but not so unlikely that you didn't run into others like yourself in the world.
    Idea number two is where I'm putting my money, for this idea involves the Illigers, and the theory you presented that the Illigers are trying to bring back the ancient Builders via dark magic, for I think that they succeeded in bringing a builder back to life, and that builder is your player character.
    Now two questions of course arise from this idea, one being that if you are a builder resurrected by the Illagers, why do they attack you, followed by why are there not more of you out in the world. Both questions are actually easy to answer, for I think that not only were the Illigers wanting to bring builders back to life, but given the fact that they hold sway over the other creations they have at their disposal, I think they also wanted to control these resurrected builders. But for whatever reason, they couldn't control you, and later you were somehow able to escape from their clutches before they could kill you and start over with their experiments, explaining why Illagers would want to kill you on sight, while also explaining why there are no others like you, because they are afraid that like with you, the others they might create will not be able to be controlled, thus escaping and later messing with their plans just like you inevitably do if you survive long enough in Minecraft, after all, only you seem capable of repelling a Illager raid on the Villagers.
    But its all just speculation on my part at this point, though I would love to see you tackle this idea in one of your videos if it holds merit.

      @Angelic Asysnila Didn't at one point in a previous/later episode, it implied that they attempted to bring back the ancient builders with a totem, wool of similar colors(he also mentions Cargo Cult to better explain the wool), and dark arts? What if the totem, if everything goes according, gives steve his respawnability and they killed him off for being for a better lack of words, disobedient to the Illgers? Thinking they killed him, he just simply respawned somewhere in the world, the totem is steve if it kinda makes sense, The wool a vessel maybe and the totem a life? I have no background knowledge on how the totems are made or relate to the lore so i understand if im wrong in a lot of aspects

      Your theory can be applied on multiple things, first we can say that when our character dies, illagers spawn new ones in hopes of making our character work in favour of them but their plan fails again and again, cuz everytime our character has a will of its own

    Ender mites also are very similar to the silverfish in the over world. If the silverfish happened to get through the portal and had to eat native resources to survive it could have changed them too. It’s seems very continent that there is always a silverfish spawner right outside the portal, a little too convenient.

    This story idea would absolutely tie in to some of the dev’s mindsets, namely them trying their best to make sure that any tweaks they make don’t end up breaking player-built resource farms. The ancients never came up with resource farms. They always took from the natural environments. That left two dimensions as wastelands. Of course the Devs would support the building of creative, infinite resource farms, since the story they’ve crafted shows the ramifications of exploitation instead of cultivation.

    Random thing I heard from some sort of dev QNA a while ago. Endermites spawning after an Enderman's teleport happens because the Enderman passing through another dimension while teleporting, and doing so accidentally brings an inhabitant of that dimension back, the Endermite. This is likely not up to date, it's just a random thing I remembered.

    I love this theory. As a Dungeon Master, I love the conflict of legend vs truth and ideal vs reality. But as a sidenote... Can we appreciate how amazing animations and Minecraft parody songs made by the community clearly influenced the direction Mojang took the game? The animations remind me so much of some of the biggest names from back in the day. Any issues aside... it's just very cool as a person who's played Minecraft since its debut to see how far it's come and how true to itself it's stayed even across changes in leadership and designers. I can log in now and despite the changes to the world gen and things being better fleshed out, it still feels like the old days of wandering, farming, and occasionally getting up the nerve to delve deep. But now there's a lot more to delve for, and that's awesome. I'm not embarrassed to say I still play as a full adult, and I'm still fascinated by GT's theories about MC.

    I like the idea that Legends is an older villager telling a story to a kid. The kid sees a ruined portal, asks about it, and to just keep the kid entertained the older villager makes up a story. "But piglins turn into zombies when they go through portals!" "They do NOW, as a curse for losing the war" and other nonsense that makes just enough sense to believe, even if it doesnt all add up

    One reason for the loss of biodiversity in the nether might be the Warped Forests...a crimson forest imbued with soul power so dense, it keeps away the -Lin species (hoglins, piglins, whatever you name them) since even a hoglin runs at the sight of a mere warped mushrooms. The reason why piglins run from soul lanterns. The reason for their crumble. The reason for the withers' existence.

  • Naman

    This essentially ties up with several of matpats theories. The piglins are not turning zombified because the virus doesn't exist yet. The end theories are perfectly explained. I also think this perfectly explains why the bastions are destroyed and why the piglins attack on sight unless we provide gold. Also maybe soul sand valleys are just places where the war was fought. A lot of massacre might have taken place over them. The fossils found in these valleys can be of huge species that died out during the biodiversity loss or the war. Also explains why the different biomes seem to have a lack of too much biodiversity.

    Theory: The player is actually the last living ancient builder. In beta we see lots of Steve’s running around the over world, I’m not saying that is canon but more of a representation. After alpha the only resemblance to these Steves are zombies and skeletons. I think disc 11 explains what happened to us as the player, the last builder. We run away from monsters, jump from somewhere high, land in water which likely knocked us out. My theory is that the player got amnesia and woke up (spawned) confused and not remembering what happened to the rest of the builders in the overworld.

      There's something in relation to this I don't get. If zombies, creepers and the like are completely friendly or at least willing to support the 'hero' of the legend against the Piglin army, why are they freely attacking us in the main game? Was it some kind of magic spell that turned them on our side? Or did something cause them to turn on us(also odd, creepers seemingly not caring about the presence of villagers but if we go close to one they aggro and suicide)?
      And the whole thing about Endermen being descendants of ancient builders trapped in the End doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me, when previous species of that appearance already existed in the dimension before any ancient builders got there. Not to mention that trailer scene showing the what were they called again pulling themselves out of an End portal.
      Also, damn those bots are bad.

    After watching this video, it honestly feels poetic that the ancient builders were undone by their own hubris. The Wither, the Warden, the Enderdragons, all turned against them, and whose fault was it? They themselves were responsible. Their own creation attacked them, their new ally from another dimension turned on them over a precious resource, and Jean was their symbol of guilt over what they've done, but it's too late. Feels fitting that they basically evolved into the very creatures they conquered, that now they are stuck into an ecosystem that they themselves destroyed..

    I haven't completetly watched the video yet, but before I forget and after watching a bunch of other stuff, maybe after defeating/keeping at bay the monsters of the Nether, the ancient civilizations were inspired to create other dimensions to battle a different threat/the Nether itself (wither) if it wasn't defeated, which lead to the Warden and then the end. The inspiration is Disk Five.

    The ancient builders last ditch effort to save the echo system was to respawn the ended dragon before losing their sanity, and turning into enderman. That’s why there’s the big obsidian pillars around it when we travel there.

    Since there’s two new separate biomes in the nether now, I wonder how many different species lived in those before their homes went to ruin, maybe we as the player are meant to be the saviour, the one who restores what had been lost by our kind in the past and fix what’s broken by bringing back old specifies like how the sniffer is an ancient dinosaur that you can only obtain by finding the eggs underwater and hatching them it’s just the beginning of our adventure in saving the worlds

      Actually I do believe the story of legends is a more romanticized story. But not in the way seen in the vid. My main comparison is with the poem Beowulf. A seemingly simple story with much more historical context than what it first leads on. Beowulf was really a tale sung as a mean of boosting the moral of its local fighters and civilians. So legends my be that as well, but it could be a stretch. Though honestly the best stories are written in some form of realism.

    I had always thought of endermites as being parasites that feed on endermen, with ender pearls being their eggs. We always assume that ender pearls are eyes, but, from a certain point of view, they look like real life frog eggs, with a layer of slime around a dark spherical center. Perhaps this is why only some endermen drop ender pearls, not all of them have been infected. This would also explain why endermites come out of enderpearls randomly and why endermen are aggressive towards them. It’s a situation similar to how parasitic wasps lay their eggs in caterpillars, so that their offspring can eat them from the inside out.

What if after the war when the Overworld army had won and destroyed the Nether portals for whatever reason the Ghast's all got left behind. Perhaps that also explains why they are so aggressive when they see our character in the nether? Because we remind them of the ones that betrayed them in the past and left them alone in an unfamiliar world?

    Is it cannon that Minecraft dungeons is a prequel to Minecraft? I always thought that it felt more like something that happened afterwards considering the growth in well just about everything from pillager society, diversity in monsters from both the end and the nether, much more sophisticated enchantments, more weapons, the fact that ruins, crypts, and dungeons are still a thing meaning that there are things that are much older that what's taking place in the game.
