  • This is a possibly pointless detail, but when you look from the enderman's eyes in spectator mode, the colors are reversed. So end stone looks like cobblestone.

  • Fortnite is better

  • Mojang might’ve confirmed this theory, they said that the enderman might’ve been some entity that got stuck in the world like previous builders.

  • Good theorys

  • I think the reason that the Zombie Pigmen don't attack unless attacked is because they used to be pigs right? So they must be vegetarian zombies. They only eat plants.

  • t h i s i s s o o s w e e t .

  • No one: Not even no one: Mattpat:*uses a meme as a intro

  • What if they come out with a game titled “After the End: A Minecraft *Quest*” I emphasize quest because you are there to save whoever existed before... Endermen, Drowned, Zombies, Husks, etc. I don’t how, but just an idea that I think would be pretty cool...

  • Another detail is that, to my knowledge, Endermen are completely passive to every other mob. They ONLY attack the player. I've had several endermen invade my village but I haven't seen a single one attack the actual villagers themselves. Creepers also don't attack villagers but I think that's more to ensure there will be a village left to find considering the villager ai... To add to the theory that the transformation took generations, you can find the elytra in the end. Sure they had floating ships too, but you literally have no need for the elytra in the overworld and the nether. You always have a means of transportation, land, land you make yourself, and water. But in the end the islands are completely (and sometimes vastly, vastly) disconnected. They needed some form of transportation to cross those huge gaps of nothing. So they built ships and they built the elytra as a way to get around. But as they evolved they didn't need it anymore.

  • anyone else mildly perturbed he used an ax on a dirt block and not like...a shovel?

  • Mat, A rare site would be finding a enderman once they pick up a block and they would usually place this said block down in a either circle shape or other. It's faded now but, its a clip that is rarely seen due to their power of teleportation.

  • I don’t know much about strongholds, but I think that’s where silverfish spawn. Silverfish are very similar to endermites, making the same sounds and moving in very similar ways. Perhaps they had a common ancestor or something.

    • and if colors are reversed maybe they look like regular silverfish too.

  • $@y $¦k€ right now

  • It makes sense

  • Interesting... But! What about dragon heads on flying ships?

  • Me after watching this video: *vigorously eats chorus food*

  • I think the only detail I'd still like to see explained would be why they become aggressive when you look at their upper bodies/heads. Its a really specific detail. And the fact that they can sense you looking at them from a long distance away is also interesting; you don't even have to be making eye-contact directly.

  • But how do they "spawn" at the overworld?

  • By the armor in the end, we can assume that they had horses in the end, I've heard a rumor of a secret ender horse. If you manage to figure that one out, then try explaining the ender horse. And while you're at it, maybe explain the skeleton and zombie horses, too, please.

  • what are villagers if they're not human?

  • Don’t make a dirt house

  • But how did they end up in the overworld

  • If this is true then there are still holes: If they were more advanced then us,how could they not figure out how to beat the dragon If they were trapped then how can you find them in the over world because I sought they have the ability to travel between dimensions You can’t travel to end cities without killing the dragon ⚠️ WARNING: SPOILER WARNING ⚠️ As you said the wither was the reason for the GREAT FLEE FROM THE OVER WORLD Then why is it not already in the over world

  • What about the dragon heads on the boats

  • He breaks a dirt block with An AXE?

  • Theory: Hey u said only your enderman and you so who built the endertowers along with who brought the ended crystal

  • Minecraft confirmed that Endermen speak English but backwards!

  • Or they might just be another one of Mojang’s creation.

  • What if Steve and Alex are supposed to be a reference to Adam and Eve?

  • This is a really stupid thing but I just thought of it and wanna share because I feel dumb I didn't notice it: Adam and Eve = Alex and Steve

  • Ender,en got dat silk touch bois

  • Sad that ender man can’t hold things in “their” city’s lol

  • I say the reason why they attack is that your human face reminds them of painful blurry memories but they can’t see your face under the pumpkin

  • This is a very smart theory

  • The theory doesn't work when you consider the dragon heads on the end ships. The ancient builders that came before Steve/Alex where A LOT more advanced than them. It doesn't make sense that they wouldn't be able to defeat the dragon, and they probably killed many of them if they used their heads for decoration... Also there might be a connection between the endermen and the wither skeletons. It just seems weird to me that they are the only humanoid mobs in the game that are over two blocks tall.

  • So if enderman are people that got stuck in the end but how did they get to the overworld. And also new theory idea. Why do mobs only spawn at night? Why do some mobs die in the sun and not others? Might be dumb ideas but I really want to know why

    • And why are spiders among the mobs that don't immediately die in the sun?

  • I will tell mojang to make ender pearls craftabe in the nether uptade

  • This is really legit tho

  • As he was going on with what was in the end cities... it reminded me that you normally don't even see the endermen inside the looming towers and hidden rooms of the end cities.

  • Relationship b/t Endermen & Enderdragon? Why do Endermen get mad when you stare at them for too long? Golems? Origins of the husk?

    • for too long? bro what minecraft are you playing because I want some tolerance from the endermen! your crosshair has to just touch their face for a second!
