The world of Minecraft is vast and pretty well explored... except for one place. You see, we've covered a LOT of Minecraft on this channel, and in doing research for all of that I've noticed that one place remains mostly undiscovered - or at least un-theorized! The underwater biome of Minecraft is FULL of weird creatures and tons of interesting lore, if you know where to look. Spoiler alert, I do! Today we are diving into old Gods, ancient ruins, and more! Get your scuba gear ready, Theorists!

  • Matpat:Murky Religious Gods Guardians:SPIKY BOIII

  • Matt you didn't mention how the elder guardians give you mining fatigue

  • I learn more about Islam here than in school.

  • I'm actually from Egypt and can talk English but can't text Arabic or read Arabic

  • So if they drop fish sometimes what if they are just fish that ate prismirine crystals and transformed into Guardians?

  • out of topic but when matpat showed the photos of Kaabah, I can't help but miss the place and have a rush of nostalgia. Just went there last year, right before disaster (aka miss rona) strikes.

  • *the real mystery:* why does the splash potion have durability at 9:12???

  • theyre amphibians

  • The guardians look like underwater mines

  • The guardians don’t have mouths, maybe they’re filter feeders

  • I think the whole 23 thing is just a coincidence, don't get me wrong it's a cool thing, but still a coincidence.

  • Just wait, mojangs gonna see this video and br like- huh, never thought of that.

  • I fear no man But that thing (4:13) *It scares me*

  • Minecraft is E 10+

  • cancr? how about corona virus?

  • Thank you!!! now I have to loot the ocean monument myself cuz my Muslim friend does not want to destroy it anymore

  • What if those guardians are just like squids from Suisei no Gargantia?

  • MatPat: This video is for people 13+ Kids under 13: pfffft like I'm gonna listen to that MatPat: Entrepreneurship Kids: HIIIIIISSSSSSSSS

  • it would explain the mining fatigue debuff elder guardians give you.

  • You help me so much

  • Guys let's make a new religion, minecraftianism. What u guys think?

  • oh and say on corona alah yefrej al denya please

  • and thanks to matpat for bringing up the kabbe and the book of alah and mohammed alah homa sali ala sayidena mohammed please say that out loud tell every one you know to say that out loud please it makes millions happy when you are in a bad mood say alah homa eqfernee please it will make you happy if your happy say alhamdolilah when you mad or sad about someone say alah isamho please... hope your happy!

  • Many minecraft animals were harmed in the making of this video YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED ☠️

  • I am Watching this at age 11

  • Im starting to think that Minecraft's developers was unsure if the earth was flat or a sphere

  • Wow I can't believe he's talking about my life I'm Muslim And I'm pretty sure you have to say quran

  • Yes they are just zombies that fell in the water because if you let a zombie drown they turn into drowned (demonetized symbol) that was just cuz I wanted to no other reason :/

    • Ok

    • okay now the demonetized symbol I added actually mean something cuz he said mini cuboidal fish were in the harming of the above episode well I don't care I'm just going to just like my comment and my reply

  • MatPat teaching me abt my religion better than my teacher.

  • "Down where it's wetter"

  • 6:14 how do you drop a cow Mat? How?!

  • Zombie pig man are related to pigs and the zombie pig man are related to zombies and zombies are related to grounds

  • can you do an ocean monument

  • I feel like if thet add a sky dimension the only way to get the materials will be in the monument the gods will be there. The end is another area of that dimension

  • The ancient builders made the Guardians and Mauniuments.

  • I know why it’s 23. That’s the day of the month I was born on.

  • The inside structure of the elder guardian looks oddly similar to a command block??? Hmm 🤔

  • It’s a water zombie

  • You go into matpats world and you just see fish gasping for air XD

  • ...

  • What if the gods the people worshipped were people on creative mode

  • If you drop a cow it drops you stake

  • I'm pretty sure the Kaaba is empty on the inside and not made of gold or anything but idk they haven't let most people go inside for a few hundred years except for the people who keep it clean

  • I hope they make predation more underwater, I wanna see more fish eating fish action. Even on land more predation is inter sting for mw.

  • But aren’t drowneds just drowned zombies

  • Is it just me or do guardians look like naval mines

  • All creators are not fans of this channel I bet, cause revelence.

  • The eye circuitry did look a lot like command blocks

  • I love all the movie references

  • When I was young, I loved ancient history instead of more recent history like Federation or the civil war

  • _(Insert _*_"I wAs BoRn On ThE 23rD"_*_ and _*_"oMg iT wAs _**_23:23_**_ WhEn I wAtChEd ThIs REEEEEEEEEEEEE"_*_ comments)_

  • Stoooooop plugging you're for God's sake!!!

  • When he broke out the Kaaba 🕋 (it has an emoji for that?!) I smirked, because I just finished studying Islamic faith for Spanish class. I’ll... probably forget... Because I’m not Islamic and I don’t really care... But it’s a fun fact 🙃

  • (Ruining your childhood since 2011) 😶😶😶 Ok.

  • I love how you mix in history into your videos!

  • Qur an Not Quran

  • I’ll have you know that my lucky number is 13

  • I'm from Egypt and I read Koran

  • Minecraft Science Lesson: Put a zombie in the water, and after a bit, it turns into a Drowned! Science. I figured that out on accident XD!

  • all hail the god apple reasoning: the eight gold blocks in each

  • Now I feel bad for desecrating an ancient religious temple

  • At least you were right about SOMETHING!!!! (Like how you said that Drowneds are Zombies that just fell into the water a DROWNED (pun intended))

  • is it true that minecraft based creepers on a sort of moss in real life?

  • But if the guardians were build then the whole Monument had to be sunken as they were build or they would not look like fish

  • the guardians insides could be made by command blocks

  • 6:14 if you drop a cow a cow drop

  • Minecraft after watching this video: oh.... this man makes us our lore for us!

  • We all know that drowned are Zombies..... Wait Zombies?.. Humens.... THE OLD BUILDERS, They are still here, its just that they are dead and they are Zombies, thats why they have sunken ships. they build boats and the boats sunk, and they drowned 🙀

  • If matpat had a netflix show based on his theorys which one do you think he would choose game theory or film theory i mean they both would probably be in the educational spot

  • I am a Muslim as well

  • At 14:26 I saw some minecraft story mode season 2 in the background!

  • probably meaningless coincidence: guardians in both and Minecraft have the strange eye laser ability and other strange attributes and similarities. sheika guardians are far less mystical and mysterious though.

  • I once found a drowned below a tree holding a shell looking at a river and after watching this video I realized its actually really sad


  • We have ramadan

  • Can you do a theory about how dogs can teleport to their owner in Minecraft pls!
