Now that I have started to dive into the deep lore of Minecraft, I think I will be able to map out the ENTIRE in-world history of the game. We've talked about the corrupted music discs and the origin of the Enderme. Today I want to solve the mystery of what started EVERYTHING. What created Minecraft? Well there is this thing called the Wither...

I would just like to say you can also use nether stars for end crystals. Just sayin could have somethin to do with a theory about how the ancient builders found an egg took it to the end and their best warriors stayed behind slayed the 4 withers(I believe that their was four withers because it takes four end crystals to re summon the Ender dragon) took the nether stars and used them to hatch the egg believing that what ever was inside could protect them but became their over all demise. Just sayin sounds possible.

Also striders are either horses or pigs that adapted to the Nether I say this because horses and pigs are the only other mobs that players can ride other than the striders. I will keep adding on to my comments if I think of stuff sooooooo this might be kind of long.

And now that the nether update is out it is worth noting that when the dead ancient builders were buried it was on soul soil not soil sand. I say this because you can walk at a normal pace on soul soil, you don't sink slightly, and there is no evidence of any trapped souls, at least visually that is.

I forgot to mention that the desert temples tell the history of the wither. Only the very attentive minecrafters will notice that chiseled sand stone has a creeper and a wither on it depending on the color.
If they were trying to resurrect humans they wouldn't use three heads that dont make sense

I’m a bit late, but how do the villagers get all of their iron, swords, and tools to farm without the ability to craft?
InventorZahran Dag siden
It seems logical that in their attempt to build life itself, the Builders would use the same basic structure as that of an iron golem.

What if the witches are the reason that the wither is the way it is? Like, there are zombies and skeletons, but what if the witches used to be some kind of builders? If they tried to work with the builders to create life, but it all went wrong, and the builders blamed the witches?

Wait..... The ancient builders built the strongholds... so they must've invented the silverfish too. Maybe they tried to make mini-guards for their strongholds and it backfired. The endermites remind the endermen of their mistakes, which anger them.

This video is over a year old, but I noticed when he bring up buildings he doesn’t mention jungle temples, it’s also out of the way and hidden, so it goes with the theory, but I wondered if they’re not in the game anymore or something

Wait so. They built the stronghold. And they hate the silver fish. why did they put a silver fish spawner in the strong hold if they like it so much. And zombies and skeleton die in the sun and somehow come to life in the night? Dosnt make much sense how the master builder became the zombies and skeles

I was thinking, if the endermen evolved in The End from the original creators, how did they get back to the surface world? We know we need the eyes of ender just to get to The End so was there a chance that there were creators before the creators matpat is talking about? And they figured out how to get back to the surface but were stuck with the mutations they had when they were stuck in the end?

Ooo maybe strongholds where they prepared the portal and the cells are for the captured mobs that found their way in and the silverfish are to distract you from getting to the end, either a warning of whats through there or keeping mobs away for their citadel

i think skeletons are the ones with bows but not zombies because they have to stretch their arms and stuff so the flesh just falls off more easily, but the zombies don't have to do that.

After rewatching this episode, I have a amazing idea. What if Herobrine and Steve were the ones who defeated the Wither when everyone left. But in the process Herobrine gave his strength to Steve, but in losing his strength, he gets corrupted by the Wither.

What if sometimes zombies spawned with weapons and tools and skeletons spawn with bows that are sometimes enchanted although they cant pick up or build anything, none the less enchant something, are holding them, maybe they died with them while trying to fight, build, or dig away from the wither?
