matpat i think there is a flaw in your theory that the pigmen lived in the nether for centuries because of the baby zombie pigmen if they lived for centuries why are the baby's still babies?

I’d also like to point out it’s plausible the old builder race could have tried to make/use them as a form of guardians since iron is much more difficult to find away from the over world. Could’ve been a failed experiment that affected the piglins exclusively? Like zombification spread like a disease that only some where immune to?

It's also worth noting that piglins are scared of their zombified counterparts

I have a different theory. So, you know how we have broken portals? Yeah. That's how piglins got into the nether. Once they where Pillagers. How? You remember how they have crossbows. This can also tie into matpats theory. We know how they have lapis in there heads and have magic, this ties into the telepathic communication. You know how they don't attack when your wearing gold? Guess what you find in the broken portal chests? GOLD TOOLS AND ARMOUR! This explains that the Pillagers built a portal, Put their tools in a chest to keep safe, got trapped in the nether, forced to eat Nether wart, built a bastion and made tools from the gold chunks found in the nether. That's not all. Pillagers Hate Players so there's a chance they would hate the ancients too as they have similar properties. Also we know they are connected to the illagers that know about portals with the wool end portal. So yeah that's a theory A COMMENT THEORY! Thanks for reading..

The nether update replaced pigmen with piglins, and added hoglins, so: -The pigs that ate nether wart turned into hoglins -The hoglins bit people, who turned into piglins -A zombie wandered through the portal, and zombified the hoglins and piglins

1.16!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm sorry, but we've already had a one point six version, this is one point sixteen (because Mojang is too stubborn to make Minecraft two). (Please don't take this as a hate comment, because it's not 🐼).

YOOOOOi. I do support this theory because if you look at the Minecraft music video “Dragonhearted” by captainsparklez, it shows in the end when the “King or master Pigman” dies, they all die. Making them in some way connected with one another when the main source is overthrown and killed. They all die.

Maybe the piglins are pigs sent to the nether as tests by the builders that evolved differently than the zombie pigmen or are zombie pigmen that are alive and then when the builders finally went to the nether themselves they found a rival race of piglins that remember the builders that sent them there and then they went to war which is why there are nether fortresses where NETHER SKELETONS spawn or the piglins knew about the secret of the whither since they had evolved in the nether and knew about it and when they heard the builders planned on making the whither intentionally or unintentionally they went to war to prevent the builders from doings so but it didn’t work and the nether caused zombie pigmen to arise much like regular zombies and skeletons in the overworld. The piglins probably managed to fend off the whither and trap it in the overworld but only after it brought destruction to their civilization which is why they are hostile towards Steve a descendent of the people who created the whither

Matpat you were right but you're missing one more detail about the zombie pigman you can see they're half temperature half pig half zombie but they have a skeleton that mean they're not from the nether so that means they're from the overworld so that so skeleton and zombie come out of the day then show me pigman come out of this nether so that me directly that mean they're four months inside one I'm a I'm a I'm a game theorist

Theory: maybe the piglings were a peacefull race towards the humans, but a conflict resulted by the summoning of the Wither made them mad and declared war towards the humans, and that would be the reason the piglings structures are called "The bastion"

Maybe the reason they share the same physique as the ancient builders is because of the soil netherwart grows from, isn't it from the same stuff the souls of the dead ancient builders are from? Maybe because of that, their properties intertwined and made them that way.
