    Hi mat pat (big fan) I have a interesting theory about why the minecraft monsters are the way they are.i have a theory where hero Brian (after getting his powers) cursed the game and only some players (like the endermen) are left in the end the only place that wasn’t hit by hero Brian’s curse. The curse killed/ re- incarnated all the players as monsters without human capability (like speech,building ) and brain washed, lost and confused. The villagers however and left human like but without verbal or build able capabillitys after hero Brian’s curse, there the ones who are left human like but still re-constructed and are now looking to us to save the world from this curse but with us unable to have hero Brian in the game they are left like this disfigured, and unable to be human like Let me know what u think Kind regards cosmic

    Frankie likes 1700 more. This is because Frankie always picks the number with the higher value. So with the numbers given, my hypothesis is that Frankie would most likely like 1700 more than 1600.

    U know why are the monsters even here in the first place well it could be hero Brian probably a player got him mad or hurt and that got him his powers when he was faced with a life or death situation then with his powers he got revenge and cursed the whole planet of minecraft killing and mutating all the players everywhere before thought some smart humans figured out and hearing the news of the hero Brian cursing ran to the end where there now stuck forever..............

    Are these games in releasing in chronological order? What if it turns out that Duck Season is the last game in the trilogy... I'm thinking Arthur starts a revolution with the big Robot, loses bc obviously the main character always wins, but in his defeat he uses the void to go back in time to when he was younger as that duck season dog and end himself there to prevent that future or something idk ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    Why are they hurt by water? Why do they attack you if you look them in their eyes? Did the berries cause their speech to become distorted? If they were trapped in the end, then what about the endermen that spawn in the Overworld? Are they messengers that can only be there for a limited time? Are they sacrificing themselves to give us the ender pearls, which can be crafted into eye of Enders? Is that what “Free the end” achievement is?

    Hey if any of the game theorists who read this, I wanna tell you that y'all were wrong. I'm talking about the Sonic movie, with a theory that said why sonic left his world to go to earth. This theory was that Sonics best friend, Miles tails Prower, was dead, but I went to watch it and at the end in the credits, we see tails looking for sonic, hinting at a second movie and proving the theory wrong. I love your videos so if you can, please shout my comment out thanks.
