The world of Minecraft is vast and pretty well explored... except for one place. You see, we've covered a LOT of Minecraft on this channel, and in doing research for all of that I've noticed that one place remains mostly undiscovered - or at least un-theorized! The underwater biome of Minecraft is FULL of weird creatures and tons of interesting lore, if you know where to look. Spoiler alert, I do! Today we are diving into old Gods, ancient ruins, and more! Get your scuba gear ready, Theorists!

    I love how all of this is a stretch and I don’t even care. It’s so entertaining even though there’s like a 95% chance that none of this is true. I learn a lot about real life stuff and about weird quirks of Minecraft.

    His idea for the Guardians sounds very similar to the Warpers from Subnautica. Artificial/augmented creatures from under the ocean that have strange ablities, no need for breathing or food, meant to protect various underwater building for an initially unknown reason.
