Welcome back to Minecraft Theory, where we do deep dives into anything and everything Minecraft! Honestly Theorists, there is SO MUCH to explore in this game. In my search for theory fodder on Creepers, Endermen, and all other manner of creatures, one thing stood out. The Illagers. You know, the exiled magic folk who seem to be up to some rather... interesting experiments. What are they doing and how might it change Minecraft FOREVER if they succeed in their plot? Let's find out!

    I have a game theory for vex: vexes used to be thriving players, and those players enjoyed combat. Those players took on every dimemsion, and then they took on a woodland mansion. They died, and then they turned into small ghosts. the evokers took the souls of the players, corrupting them and turning them into vex.

    Lapis lazuli : also the names of Androids 17 and 18 from DBZ... So what this boils down to is that these illagers are working with Dr Gero to fabricate an Android Steve. But heyyyy, that's just a theory! A Crackpot Theory! Thanks for reading.

    What if Steve and Alex are successful attempts at creating life and the reason. Their eyes have some evidence since the only "humans" (that includes Steve, Alex, villagers, and illagers) that have blue eyes are vindicators and Steve. What if blue eyes means that they have lapis in their heads. Sure it could also just be genetic when it comes to Steve's eyes but it is a possibility.

    Dino Bekric2 ditë më parë

    I personally think your theory about zombies is wrong. When a zombie infects a villager, it turns into a zombified villager, not a normal Steve zombie. So how are there this many zombies in the overworld? And why are they spawning in the dark only? I mean, the Illagers certantly cant create that many zombies.

    Hey this might be a stupid theory but when matpat said they are turning villagers into animals I thought that maybe the cats that are at villages are villagers. I think this because there are th so many cats at villages so what I mean is that the villager cats escaped the illagers and went back home...

  69. Travis Dunbar

    Travis Dunbar3 ditë më parë

    So, putting two theories together: -Illagers trying to make their own copy of Steve. -Illagers cargo culting after the ancient builders. Could their end goal be, to bring about their own builder? Their original 'gods' won't come back to them, so they are trying with what is left, to get what they've been wishing for the return of.

    Also I think it's important to note that the only facial feature other than skin colour that differentiates ravagers from villagers is that the ravagers' mouths are horrifically stretched to the side like the Joker and his scars, except the ravagers' actually have wide mouths.

    The ravagers metal armour isn't armour, they are restraints, shackled arms and legs, and connecting chains to their torsos.

  76. Go Leonard

    Go Leonard4 ditë më parë

    Maybe the reason why the illagers can't create a new steve is because in every singleplayer world, only one Steve should exist. Nothing more, nothing less. Steve's immortality is so strong that no one else can recreate him or the power he possess.

    not to mention that zombies spawn at night or in the dark, and burn in the daylight. since the zombies where created in the "dark forest" where it is, um, DARK. it would make sense that the zombies where not used to the light and therefore burn in daylight. same story with skeletons. Maybe creepers where just more successful experiments? but that doesn't explain why they explode...
