One of Mario's most iconic power ups is the fire flower. You can't tell me you don't get excited when you see that flower and know you are about to cause some fiery havoc in the Mushroom Kingdom... and everywhere else. Really. EVERYWHERE. You can even shoot a fireball underwater. Why? How? Theorists, I want answers and I will not stop until I figure out what the SECRET behind Mario's fireball is. Let's a-go!

    7:08 Did you just say water doesn't have oxygen? You know, H2O? O standing for Oxygen? The reason why water puts out fire is because it takes away another part of the triangle, heat. Water is an excellent heat absorber.

    Theory... that sounds like it originated from an ancient greek work, maybe the word was named after a philosopher or something. hmm, theroese? Theoresius! wait that sounds familiar... Tieresius was the name of this guy in a greek play Antigone, wait a minute, that guy was a prophet. does that mean... but hey, Thats just a theory Aaaa word theory.

      I wanted to specify that this is all supposed to be a joke, but the connection has been made, prolly just a coincidence though.(also it mattered he was a prophet because prophets predict the future)

    I'd love if you could do a theory on the Rusty Lake and Cube Escape series of games. I'm sure this comment will get lost with the others though. If anyone sees this, and agrees with me, could you please like this comment, or even comment this yourself, so there's a higher chance of this being seen. MatPat, or random commenter who reads this, thanks!

    What if the Flower is a 'rubber' flower. I know it's naturally found from the rubber tree but could the flower be a stand-in for the plant? Maybe Mario has the other items in his overall pockets (everyone knows you can find anything in coverall pockets if you go digging deep), and after harvesting the flower, he can make fireballs!
