    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!

      I just like how this guy is pronounce Kaaba wrongly XD

    2. 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.

    31. Zainab Khawaja

      Do more theory’s on the end!!!! I know it’s not TOTALLY necessary but soooo interesting

    32. Shadow Bonnie 231

      You are wrong the pyramids aren’t completely smooth they have stair stones that aren’t smooth.

    33. Shadow Bonnie 231

      Btw I don’t know why only creepers can’t see you when you use a invisibility position for some reason every other mob sees you when you use a invisibility position I know it’s a stupid feature but hey mojang wont fix it tho they only care about the most important glitches that make the game bad and all they care about is fixing them tho.

    34. Shadow Bonnie 231

      I wonder why there’s no block that looks like the skin of the elder guardian like there is for the duardians.

    35. Natalya Angel

      The inside of the guardian looks like a command block

    36. Jelijo 8015

      Are they just zombies in water? Yes.its a drowned zombie.keep a zombie in water and itll transform

    37. Big fat Canadian

      I was watching this on May the 23

    38. Griphter

      Wait people thought the guardians were fish? iit's always been obvious that it was a Machine kind of like Golems but for underwater temples

    39. Xx Gacha_Fandoms xX

      Mat pat: the number 23 is very important and pops up a lot in our day to day lives Me: looks at the time The time: *<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="443">7:23</a>*

    40. Judy Pacaldo

      Lesson of the day: guardians are holy

    41. Jonny yt

      In my opinion if the guardians are machines-like creatures maybe the golden box is the computer core that controlls them

    42. Giovanni Barajas

      wow it's uh... May 23rd today... interesting..

    43. Liam Wallace

      i watched this on may 23rd

    44. FABIOLO cz.

    46. AngeAle Bassist

      Can we talk about how the cunduit has a pulsing sound and whenever the drowned are nearby they get killed?

    47. Devastator GX

      i am Muslim and <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="816">13:36</a> is kind of wrong because we don't think Allah is there or lives there , in the ka'bah

    48. ella loser

      while he was talking about the number 23,,, it was <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="155">2:35</a>

      Theroy time: mincraft takes place in ancient mesopotamia

    50. Eric Brann

      Weren’t guardians added before ocean temples? Because I left Minecraft in 2014, came back, and that seems new to me. Or it’s the fact I was seven when I left and just don’t remember

    51. CandB ly

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="207">3:27</a> I’m like yes. I know this because I tried drowning a zombie they turned into the drowned.

    52. Tracey Carmello

      Huh never thought about that

    53. Mackuncky Extravaganza


    54. DontReadMyName

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="460">7:40</a> and the Elder Guardians have a Command Block built INSIDE THEM and it is set to ”mining fatigue” so they activate that and the player gets mining fatigue.

    55. Noora Kraish

      I Muslim and it is Ramadan this month

    56. Hugh Limm

      <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="374">6:14</a> ''if you drop a cow'' WHAT!!!!!

    57. Suzy

      The 23 part was crazy to me, because my lucky number is 23. I never actually realized how apparently special it was, I just love the number 23 for some reason. I’m not religious at all though.

    58. Prince K

      Please press this ---------><a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="780">13:00</a>

    60. correct watermelon

      this is the best intro i've ever seen

    61. chaos LEGO

      My birthday is 23 february 2010.

    62. Spiritgate 04

      Quick fact check: the day the Quran was revealed is kept a mystery and is known as Laylat al qadr.

    63. GhostLordRetro

      the intro is hilarious! Especially <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="14">0:14</a>!

    64. Karen Cook

      the orange of the guardians are a apart of pumpkins because the old civilization created them with the thought that pumkins=life, with iron golems and snow people

    65. Meme Thing

      23 has a 2 in the tens place and a 3 in the ones place Most Minecraft items can be a max of 64 of them in a stack 64 has 6 in the tens place and 4 in the ones place 3x2=6 2x2=4 *yes me has big brain*



    67. Insane Gamer


    68. CongressGamingINC

      Weird coincidence (<a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="700">11:40</a> ?) My name is Mia. M=13 I=9 A=1 13+9+1=23 And usually for some reason, name wise at least in most cases, I associate with the number 2 or 3. If you use my first and last initial (2 things, both associate with 3) it does a thingy. Mia has 3 letters, last initial is C which is three, 2 sets of 3. I know this is probably dumb and it’s weird manipulation of numbers but ha know ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It’d be funny if I was born on the 23rd but nah, close though

    69. Meme Thing

      I have the combat Minecraft book and it says that guardians protect the gold so yes, if they’re man made than they were made to protect the gold.

    70. Bob Bob

      What about 21

    71. beccabenw

      if you drop a cow

    72. Deleoune Cortez


    73. Maggie Gozum

      Hey game theory so my theory is that the drowns are the ones who refused to go to the end the ones who thought that it was a bad idea so they lived there collecting Nautilus shells under water and breeding turtles to get scutes and craft them in to helmets that they enchanted to breath under water but some forgot to enchant their helmets soon they died but the hearts of the sea was some how able to revive them

    74. Ark Rivals

      Identify the puffier fish the only fish in the game that has spikes and the gaurdens have that to so I think it’s puffer fish dna

    75. Green Letuce

      Wow, matpat explained Islam better than my religion teacher :)

    76. Luke Schwan

      If the monument wasn't originally underwater, Then why are guardians built to swim?

    77. Noval Giovanny

      Yes. Ocean monument islamic im too Like if you Are a muslim hehe

    78. ruhen shamraaj

      MatPat: 23 has a magical or mystical significance Me: i was born on the 23rd of January.

    79. Ello World

      Plot twist the god in minecraft turns out to be notch himself

    80. Theodore Villamin
