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 wanna do a game theory. Maybe that the building is underwater because it flooded, like you said. Also in the beginning matpat said that the so called ‘Guardians’ CAN survive being on land. So maybe they were originally on land.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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

    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.
