    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!

      Best video entrance evaaaaa lol youre awesome

      I'm late but, what if the guardians, which we've calified are not exactly natural, are powered by gold. In real life gold is the best electricity conductor, but it's hard to get gold. Minecraft already shows that gold works with redstone with powered rails and stuff of that nature. With so much gold if it's carrying electricity, it makes sense to cover it up to the water. If gold powers these guardians I wouldn't doubt that many previous civilizations would this it had some sort of magical properties that they would base a religion around. We never really see fully inside a guardian so there could very well be gold inside.

      At <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="897">14:57</a> i know exactly where he got that immage of the overgrown simi ruined city, it is one of the title screen images from the twitch minecraft modpack overgrown which is actual procedural generation from that modpack, with a shader but other than that the same modpack, that is the whole map even infinite worlds it actually is one of the best modpacks on twitch

      Best intro I’ve ever seen

    7. CanisOrtiz

      .... Guardians in Minecraft: -has a lazar -Lazar needs time to charge up -Have a singular eye Guardians in BOTW: -have a single eye -Lazar needs time to charge up -Shoots a lazar. *hMMMMMMM* Edit: they’re both machines too made by ancient people/s (the Sheikah can be considered ancient right?)

    8. l:BETA:l

      I appreciate that MatPat didn't skill (or show) him suffocating a dolphin or a turtle. +1 respekt.

    9. Clyde The Wonder Dog

      Although, remember that Mesopotamia as we know it existed thousands of years before islam

    10. Your Average Weirdo Del Literally

      Does that mean Our Minecraft worlds are in Iraq or Syria?

    11. Rożny_ PL

      I think guardians dont have spikes but crystals what givs him power of laser

    12. Cielian King of the Forest

      Steve and Herobrine.

    13. NavyGaming

      I didnt know minecraft were so religious.. especially the monument.... im.. actually speechless

    14. MineAntoine

      MatPat: "The Guardians aren't made of flesh but rather of prismarine" Me: But what if they are made of flesh, and prismarine is the flesh of dead guardians? And also, that means if you decorate your house with prismarie blocks you are actually decorating your house with dead guard- Ok, the decorating your house with dead guardians didn't have to be said, and I'm bad at making theories.

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="374">6:14</a> if you drop a cow it drops you like cow flesh. 😂😭 Am i the only one that noticed this. 😭😂

    19. Bitter_Lemon Art

      I am so happy MatPat thoroughly explained my religion right. Like I was listening to everything CAREFULLY to see if he says it all right 😂

    20. Adrian Connor

      I didn't expect my religion to show up

    22. Alexis the True Gamer 007 Lel

      This intro is kinda funny

    23. Reife - Z


    24. VictimZ00

      Well if the guardians skin are made of rock then why are slapping sounds made when they are on land

    25. DBK

      Praise the Almighty Sponge-Bob.

    26. gestofarmer

      At <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="372">6:12</a> If you drop a cow

    27. No Stop it

      Solid theory, but I don’t think notch would have allowed that. You know, given the whole twitter thing

    28. Its Under9000

      Furthermore supporting the idea of the ocean monument being of religious significance is the fact they're called ELDER guardians. Elder being the word used to describe a person of authority in a Christian Church. I'm aware Islam and Christianity aren't the same but they have a TON of similarities. There being only a few elders but a ton of normal guardians indicates this monuments power structure is similar to that of a church. :) But that's just a thought

    29. Guillermina Hernandez

      Theory: The guardians attack the player (Steve / Alex) probably they’re Memory got “reset...”

    30. Mohmed Alaa

      FYI the Quran first verse is "read_read by the name of God " just for knowledge and stuff like that idk if that we'll help in the theory But the whole 23 doesn't make sense to me cause the day that Quran was told to Mohamed it's just unknown all we know it was at the last 10 days of ramdan just wanted to correct this information I am Muslim btw

    31. Mantha Mae

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="45">0:45</a> de·fen·es·tra·tion /dēˌfenəˈstrāSHən/ noun - action of throwing someone out of a window. "death by defenestration has a venerable history"

    32. r6 god

      I'm a Christian

    33. Stargazer 199

      Y’know, I always thought guardians looked like prismarine because of camouflage, and they dropped it because they’re dumb and accidentally eat it along with their food. I guess I was wrong, because MatPat’s theory makes much more sense

    34. Crispy Nugget

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="420">7:00</a> once I got mining fatigue when I was I a boat. I don't know whether that's important or not.

    35. EmirGamesLD

      Me, a muslim:Yeah, I already knew half of this contex

    36. shaheda mili

      "If you drop a cow, it drops you like cow flesh"

    48. Neo Nator

      After watching this, I realized that the Elder guardians are like old technology, in the guardians are like new technology… Smaller and faster than its predecessor…

    49. thurman Weaver

      Matpat-guardians are like machines Me- FIVE NIGHTS AT the underwater ocean monument

    50. mido xd

    54. Lyss

    57. Eser

      The Elder Guardian also gives you Mining Fatigue so you don't destroy the monument.

    58. Caroline Payne

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="51">0:51</a> haha cop purge how appropriate for the end of may 2020

    61. LeftHandClutch

      I have mobs at my door every night that call themselves the "IRS"

    62. zaim jofri

      I just like how this guy is pronounce Kaaba wrongly XD

    63. iiUnknown Past

      I know I’m *very* late to this, but I thought I’d note this little tidbit for anyone in the future. In the treasure room, there are the eight gold blocks, and Mat stated the temple was dedicated to worship some type of god. Keep in mind that Notch was the *creator* of the Minecraft universe, and EIGHT golden blocks are needed to create a Notch Apple. You can see the links from there.

    64. Commander Quin

      the day 23 is my birthday ?????????

    65. Azfar Moin

      .....I am Islamic and even I didn't know this....that's probably because I am way to, only 9

    66. Dragoncatswag

      And we thought COPPA would be the only bad thing about 2020

    67. Krzysztof BĄKOWSKI

      The inside of the elder guardian looks like a command block

    68. RAY 0606 R

      Can matpat solve the piggy true ending?

    69. Jesse Zawitkowski

      The guardian from mob beastiary “skeleton” looks like a command block

    70. Elvira Velasquez

      What if fishes control the guardians

    71. Sergej Press Start

      Mat: nobody makes a song about water Meh: welp, time to make one to prove mat wrong

    72. Just a Wendigo With an iPhone

      I was so blasted while watching this

    73. Taco YEET


    74. Reagan Larson

      I just bet you have a lore of your own. I’m onto you, “matpat.”

    75. Jerry

      Steve is muslim confirmed

    76. Tim the American panda

      you make a lot of good pointes but the guardians only not attacking drownd is wrong they dont attack many animals (cows,fish,villigers ect)

    78. Tahira Parveen

      my man has more Islamic knowledge than me and I'm a muslim.

    79. Some Guy

      I think that the reason the eyes are red is because it's using redstone to power the laser


      How do they retract their spikes?
