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!

  • Seeing the research you did on Islam and Muslim beliefs made me extremely happy, seeing an objective view on it is so refreshing considering how Muslims and Islam as a faith are ridiculed and seen through the eyes of misinterpreted/biased views

  • In a more simplified explanation, basically, guardians are mechanical beasts made to protect/guard an "ancient" building which holds a sacred treasure.

    • Im pretty sure the official strangers Minecraft skin pack reinforces this. There is something I believe called a prismarine zealot, and it looks similar to a guardian.

  • I doubt my comment on the previous two part video had anything to do with it, but I wan't to be consistent in my criticisms/feedback I really enjoyed this video and its pacing. the two parter was disclaimed early on. It felt like this video was mostly about the theory this time, and i really liked that. Also the end of the video gave me answers to questions i had at the beginning but by the end, Matpat brought up new questions i'm looking forward to seeing in the next part. I really apreciated that. It was more satisfying than most of the other two parters i've watched on the channel so far. Another example of, what i think, is a good and satisfying two part-er: Rosalina's origin and Peach is dead episodes were really well done. Also thanks to Team Theorist for all of your hard work beyond the videos in things like advocating for the gaming community and fighting cancer. you guys are awesome, with love, Eli, a fellow theorist.
