  • first the ancient builders we're carrying the virus from the overworld (on you new video about a virus in the overworld) by that, they entered the nether WITH the virus but it didn't die because the virus was inside the builders. The builders pigs as food and ate them and the netherwarths and both of these things got fused. And made the builders pig like creatures. And that's when the virus cames from. When the builder turned into the pigman the virus took place and made them zombie pigmen.

  • What if the beings who brought them there died and the pigs sick of neitherwort ate there flesh. If you mix neitherwort that magic stone you spoke of and rotten human flesh well... a undead human pig is not as farfetched.

  • Can I show your dad version of there’s a creature that used to exist in Minecraft and I forget what it’s called but it’s literally a human version of a pig that looks like just a standing up pig if you stand up and it’s actually a zombie fied version of that creature I don’t know it’s named

    David ParrishDavid ParrishPäev tagasi
  • Honestly I believe that the fact they COMPLETELY erased pigmen is possibly something showing that the piglins are much more important to the nethers individual lore

  • Opinion: I personally believe this theory, but I think the abandoned pigs turned into the non-zombified Piglins, but when they eventually died their diet kept them alive even though their corpses kept rotting, why the Piglins run from the zombie ones.

  • my theory is that whenever you kill a pig in the overworld, its soul gets trapped in the nether and it becomes a zombie

  • I think it’s a wormhole Definition something that can make things travel quicker like folding a paper and then poking it through the lighting strike might of been one but then collapsed right after leaving a pigmen there and a pig slowly evolving.

  • I think that it could have gone like this: 1. Pigs are brought to the nether 2. Pigs become zombified somehow 3. The ancient builders try to cure them, but create the piglins instead 4. The piglins overrun the bastions of the ancient builders, 5. The ancient builders get forced out of the nether and into the overworld 6. They get attacked by the wither and migrate to the end.

  • This theory really makes sense, also, the reason why pigmen can stand is probably because their food(nether wart) is grown on soul sand. Perhaps the pigmen aquired the human features of the souls in the soul sand.

  • Maybe the pig didn’t change but the builders changed, the pigs ate the fungus and the builders ate the pigs. Along with that maybe the pig fused with the soul of the builders and their bodies and just evolved.

  • hello, new cryptocurrency is there. Right now its in the second phase, if you want to earn it, you need to download app on mobile phone called Pi network. The only thing you need to do is register, and for the code use: zenata11 you will get a bonus of 1 Pi for free. The best part is you dont even need to have the app open to mine. It doesnt use any batery or power of the phone. After you register, you need to start the app every 24 hours, and the only thing you need to do, is press 1 button. So start mining now. You can become very rich, like with bitcoin in 2008.

  • okay so.... is it just me or does anybody wanna see a theory of this ruined portals, they spawn in nether, overworld not end because well I mean who goes to the nether in the end I dont even think it works, they're all so different (I play mostly on bedrock so I dunno on java but) it looks like the nether is growing out of it? what is going on also a tiny thing... villagers have to be able to craft/build 1. there villages. how else would they get there 2. the hay blocks + they can replant their crops if you break them.

  • I think the pigmans (piglins) are the sinners souls that died in the overworld, the nether is an guilty jail when the sinners stay for ever (at least you force them to go to the overworld) if you punch them, I think they must find you guilty of everything you did to them (connected brains = vi0lence for one, vi0lence for everyone) just an silly theory of me :)
