Welcome back to Minecraft Theory, where we do deep dives into anything and everything Minecraft! Honestly Theorists, there is SO MUCH to explore in this game. In my search for theory fodder on Creepers, Endermen, and all other manner of creatures, one thing stood out. The Illagers. You know, the exiled magic folk who seem to be up to some rather... interesting experiments. What are they doing and how might it change Minecraft FOREVER if they succeed in their plot? Let's find out!

Mattpat when are you going to do a theory on ghasts. There’s an achievement in minecraft where you bring a ghast to the overworld and kill it “and the achievement description says :*rescue a ghast and bring it home, then kill it* and has mechanical parts in the bestiary. Suggesting it originates from the overworld and perhaps is made by the old builders. It also drops a tear when it dies which also suggests this. And theres also an unused ghast sound called: ghast’s affection. Likely supposed to be used when you rescue one

mini theory: as many know the "herobrine was removed" text had appeared in all the updates until the most recent ones, thus sparking the hope that he was actually in the game although this hasn't been proven yet. Could the illagers have found a way to re-create steve and make herobrine???

I think that Steve was originally created by the Illagers, maybe using remains of the ancient civilization, but escaped and lost his memories of his time there. The Illagers, after seeing how Steve had a talent in building things and using weapons, try to recreate the experiment, but are, for some reason, unable to, leading to them trying to kill Steve, or at least capture him to put him back under their control so they can analyze what made him different from their other creations.

So, what if the Steve you play as is a successful experiment. It explains his knowledge about crafting just about everything including how magic (enchanting and making the tables to enchant) works as well as how to get to the end (eyes of ender, getting to the nether, finding an end portal etc) It would also explain why they are hellbent on assaulting villages whenever you have the bad omen debuff. They only raid when YOU, the player enter a village. It's them trying to capture their runaway experiment. Hell, maybe their killing two chickens with one shovel in getting you to build what they want, (an entrance into the end?) and getting more test subjects to make more Steves.

I'm pretty sure there's a simpler explanation here. As it turns out, around the same time minecraft was working on illager raids, they also did a whole bunch of AI and combat updates to another mysterious mob. The giants. In snapshot 18W50a The giants had gotten an mechanic updates, behaviour updates, and ran on the Zombie AI whereas before this point they had no AI at all. You could summon them in, but they'd just stand there like a living statue. While woodland mansions were added in 1.11, and these updated were done for the snapshots leading to 1.14, I think the colors of blue/cyan wool are better connected to giant zombies than steve. While it's true steve wears these colors, zombies also wear these colors, so while interesting... it doesn't prove an origin story. Meanwhile, not only to zombies, and therefore giant zombies, wear these same clothes, the Illager mansions are filled with other giant mobs in wool form, like chickens or even giant illagers themselves. Then there's the lapis. If you think about it... I don't think it makes sense to be a source of magic as a whole. It's only ever used for enchanting meanwhile blaze powder is used for brewing and netherwart is used as a potion base. So it's not the only magical substance in the game. Furthermore, why would the illagers want to let their secrets out like that? They seem like a pretty secretive bunch living in dark, isolated woods. building an entire state of wool just to demonstrate to anyone who might wander along how to gain god-like powers seems a little stupid. A golem core, on the other hand, not so much. Between Mojang making several updates to giants at the same time they were adding in the Raid mechanic, as well as all of the evidence discussed here regarding zombie/steve clothes colors, not to mention the evidence of Illagers building giant statues of themselves and other mobs out of wool... It seems pretty likely all of this was meant to tie back to how the illagers were manufacturing giant zombies, and maybe other giant mobs, for use in their raids. Scrapping it because the giant zombies were too damn powerful (You couldn't even outrun them with speed potions and they hit with the power of saitama), and then going with the villager kidnapping and raid beasts angle instead.

i think the totem of undying hold villager's souls cuz if u saw the green eyes of it and the shape of a villager. so let's get u as an example, u are using a totem of undying then u die the totem revives u. so why it revives u? i think its because when u die the totem gives u the souls held in it so u could be back from death. that's why the totem disappear after using it cuz it gives u all the souls that is now inside ur body

I thought I could add that when you kill a head illager, you get the “bad omen curse” which starts riots in every village you enter, this might be some way of the illagers to gather new people to help experiment, even after they are dead?

Maybe it’s a conversation between two ppl who succeeded in their journey to controlling life and death, it would be silly for the pillagers to be the only ones who succeeded finally in reaching god hood
