    I think that the illagers made the virus. the first wave almost everyone got infected but later the villagers and builders became immune to it. They went to the end to escape the Wither. Which make more sense than hiding underground from an AIRBORNE virus.

    I know who the ancient builders are. They looked exactly like steve. In one of the old updates the world was flat with loads of steves strolling around but a few updates later they were gone. It was likely this all started between that update and the world full of steves.

    Another thing that proves the plague theory is if a piglin or a hoglin go through a portal, they become zogilns and zombified piglins Proving that if they come into the overworld, they will likely get the plague just flying all around the air

    Action the pre-classic versions of Minecraft you spawn on a small flat map and you could spawn human players the first ever mob added into Minecraft so my theory is they fell off the skybox and landed on Earth but then discovered a virus that turned them all into zombies except for a few of them

    actually when in hard difficulty 100% of villagers turn into zombies, when in normal 50% turn and when in easy 0% turn but they just die. this leads me to believe that the difficulty levels effect not just the player but the villager. the diseases power and deadliness is decreased along with the difficulty level.

  56. ToastPandaPlays

    This makes a lot of sense, but why are _WE_ not affected. Like some villagers, we only die when attacked, like we’re immune. How did we get here if, by the time we arrive, the other ancient builders are gone. Where did we come from, and Why are we immune? Dang, if that type of video wouldn’t take forever to make, I might do my own research and try to make it. Or I can just comment my findings for Matt so that I’m not copying somebody else’s idea.

    So Someone may not get matpats theory When the ancient builders went into the Nether realm for some reasons they must of see the mobs built strongholds when they stayed there too long or came right after they saw the hostile mobs they were infected and brought it back to the over world they spread it by seas deserts other biomes then they started to built the iron Golems for the defenseless villagers and themselves before one of last Ancient builders made steve and Alex

    1. Noob627
      10 ימים לפני

      Or just most likely they saw endermen building portals to the nether and end realm and they just followed

  65. Squib1219

    Theory a nuclear war happend , it happend in the middle of the ocean flooding citys (under water ruins) and ancient tempels (the sea temples ) the ancient bilders ran to the strong holds they built , but some did not , ( the viligers ) who were mutated. the dead people that did not survive the blast turnd into zombies and sceleton . the mutated people built tiny houses out of the resorses they found then upgraded and biult ok houses. ( i think all your other theorys about the ender bois and the piggy bois are correct)

    Theory : The piglins have the the infection inside them but the heat of the nether holds it back and that’s why they start shaking as soon as they leave the nether that’s why in some warped forests you can find zombied piglins because the warped forests are cooler not cold but cooler
