    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!

    As far as my headcanon is, the sea temples were a site of worship for those that worshipped the gods of the sea, creating the guardians to guard the temples, primarily they would be beneath the main temple hiding amongst the legs, with the Elder Guardians serving as the primary leaders and commanders of these temple guards. But as the Wither Apocalypse came, the gods tried to help stop them, but they made the seas rise too much, drowning the temples, and the worshippers who hid there to survive against the Withers.

    Maybe the guards and the Elder guardian are maybe relatade to the shulker because they are made of blocks

    Sorry, this may sound extrememly out of context for everyone, but defenestration was by far the best word I had heard of and began a lot of debate within my own group of friends about why on earth the word was made in the first place (Apparently there was a defenestration of a pope in a church sometime in the 19th/20th century, but I can't remember that well as it has been a while), but I was ADAMANT on using that word whenever I could just to get the point across that this word existed for the strangest of reasons whilst a word for the day after tomorrow didn't!
    MatPat thank you so much just for that word! I haven't even watched the full video yet but I'm just glad to have heard that word!!!!!!!!!!! DEFENESTRATION FOR THE WIIIN *Defenestrates self*

    The first verses didn’t revealed to the prophet Muhammad in 23th of Ramadan but it was on the last 10 days of Ramadan for sure and that night we call it fate night so ocean monument isn’t related to the Islamic faith but it might be related to the Mesopotamia civilization and and ancient Egypt civilization.

    Me watching it and being a Muslim at the same time do feel offended. I still like MatPat and enjoy his videos a lot but giving Islamic references and comparing them with games is disrespectful and hence I would recommend you not doing that ever again because there are millions of Muslims out there who are offended by this. Other wise you are awesome but pls, it’s a request, pls don’t do that ever again

    Wait you know the ship wrecks and the sea ruins that were recently added to Minecraft in 1.13. They have often broken and mossy blocks why don’t of the sea temple have them yes there is no mossy variant of prismarine. but look at the ship wrecks even they have seaweed and kelp on them and broken blocks on and in them the sea temples have none of that. Yes stone is harder for plants to from but look at the sea ruins they still have kelp and seaweed on them and their made of stone. If the sea temples aren’t filled with greenary and no broken blocks then how come the other structures in the sea do?


    4:36 Maybe they are amphibians(Sorry for wrong spelling)


    My theory is that elder guardians and guardians eat prismarine structures so they just made the ocean monument as a food source.The drowned also helped them by gathering prismarine but on a deal=They should put the gold inside the structures/food sources and the drowned could get them anytime they want to(Drownedndropped gold ingots sometimes)

    You're stretching a ton for this. Everything here is kinda vaguely connected, but if you take a step back, it's all very clearly coincidence. Confirmation bias makes it very easy to accept, but this theory really doesn't hold water at all.
