    I love how spread out MatPats Minecraft theories are, and he didn’t just crank them all out during the Minecraft re-hype faze

  2. xKat'ana says:

    This episode made my Creeper plushie john uncomfortable

  3. Emily Shingledecker says:

    “The creeper avoids cats because they don’t want to hurt them”

    Okay but that’s kinda wholesome

  4. shelby says:

    matpat: “what is string mostly related to”
    me: “spiders for sure”
    matpat: “cats!”
    me: “oh”

  5. Emperor Antarctica says:

    9:46 Damn Matpat. That literally came out of nowhere and hit us in the face.

    “My little Minecraft Lore series”

    Looks like we got a new multi-millionaire dollar show everyone!

    Matpat is like the cool poetry teacher that everybody likes and adds meanings to poetry😂

    • niley ridingus says:

      @Alex P ok i was wrong but oldpat is much better
      He didnt stretch the videos out to more than 10 mins by adding pointless jokes and going off topic continuously
      He didnt clickbait continuously

    • First_Name Last_Name says:

      “Cool” is a step too far, buddy.

    • Samurai Nuts says:

      Let me guess, you write poetry

    • Cheapo Gamer says:

      @niley ridingus I don’t mind, he has a kid to feed after all, as long as theory is interesting and had quality, we don’t mind at all

    • Mr.Preston 16 says:

      @niley ridingus He has never clickbaited, I dont know what makes you laugh but his jokes are funny, and he uses things connected to his theory and more evidence to support it, also the old matpat was the exact same if you disagree with all of that

  8. Blake Wendling says:

    Can we not only appreciate how much effort is put into each theory, but the still improving editing?

    • LiamYoung says:


    • Neon says:

      @Xeebakou for real

    • UpdatedGamer says:


    • Churros McGee says:

      I think after their close friend and editor, moved on lets say, they were *EXTREMELY* heartbroken but one of the main losses was his specific style, which was directed by matpat and crew so I guess after he died someone with the ability to create the same feel was actually able to keep the videos feeling the same, if not improving like you say but yeah kinda sad but inspiring kinda thing

  9. Narwhal Kat says:

    “drier than dunkeys sense of humor” big dramas are gonna come from this one

    • Long Wang says:

      @duppy the puppy Ah sorry if I’m missing the joke, was this a thing from one of Dunkey’s videos or something, honestly have no clue

    • Natarattata says:

      @Long Wang no need to be butthurt about it LMAO i think because he says dunkeys SENSE OF humor and not just drier than dunkeys humor, it seems like hes saying dunk isn’t funny but that probably wasn’t his intention

    • Long Wang says:

      @Natarattata It’s true I was annoyed in my first comment, but I’m guessing you didn’t see my second one, cause I apologized. Sarcasm and inside jokes are hard to understand across the internet, honestly thought he was saying people would get angry at the fact that Matpat said Dunkey’s sense of humor was dry.

    • May May says:

      it will, oh boy

  10. Margaret Neu says:

    You should look into the “fossil” structures underground. What were they? Why are they gone?

    • El Benezer Mirabuena says:

      It’s kinda hard to say if they were ender dragons,but alot of those fossils ended up both in the overworld and in the nether so,if they were ender dragons,why were they brought there? You can just only say “Dinosaurs did exist in Minecraft”

    • IDK IDK says:

      Yea thats a good idea

    • Lunderboy says:

      They are the fossils of the giants i think, the ones that spawned naturaly during earlier versions of minecraft, so a long time ago in the minecaft world

    • Mr. Ant says:

      @Lunderboy good theory

    • Stannator says:

      My theory is that they’re actually your mom

  11. Liam Waselko says:

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

  12. Garbage Man69 says:

    Theory: In ancient Egypt when a pharaoh or someone of importance died, they were buried in a crypt or grave with their valuables. That is what Minecraft desert temples could be, a grave of a respected person booby trapped to defend their bodies on the way to the afterlife. That would explain why you can find diamonds and enchanted books in temple chests, the valuables of a person who would need them in the afterlife.

  13. Pixelcraftian says:

    The creeper is literally just a broken pig model, yet Game Theory always finds a way to give things lore lmao, good video 👍

  14. Cayden Turner says:

    I love how matpat doesn’t go overboard with his advertising of his merch

  15. Biscuit BOI says:

    “Dryer then dunkey’s sense of humor”

    *Those fightin word boy*

  16. AN667RB says:

    Jeb accidentally flipping the length and height of a pig: “Heh”
    MattPatt: “This is the beginning of everything we know in Minecraft”

  17. Cobra Studios says:

    “The one I’ve left untouched for a long time, the desert”
    Him: Shows the mesa

  18. Stu729 says:

    “Drier than Dunky’s sense of humor.”

    You might say he has a KNACK for dry wit.

  19. new owner says:

    “Pigeontamer blew up”

    Theorists: write that down! Write that down!!

  20. Aaron Macwilliam Hughes says:

    Someone should make a mod of the old world that matpat talks about to bring it to Minecraft. Removes the end portal and such, adds non-villager npcs, makes builder civilisations etc.
