But aren't there also zombie pigmen in the nether? I guess it could have been similar to the villager/zombie villager in the overworld, but it still doesn't quite add up.

“The Virus is airborne, it’s over the walls. Anybody not infected already will be within a month. That cure was the final chance we had, maybe the survivors will succeed where we have failed.” -Paraphrase from Mazerunner: The Death Cure Honestly my favorite scene from that movie.

Hey MatPat you probably won't see this but I just wanted you to know that zombie piglins spawn in the nether so if they can only become a zombie by going to the overworld then why are there so many in the nether.

If zombiepiglins are piglins that get infected with the virus, then why are there zombiepiglins in the nether? Clearly the virus can survive in the nether maybe the nether trees somehow stop it from infecting the rest of the piglins.

I wonder if our Steve (and the player) isn’t just a descendant of the original builders but is an actual builder that was somehow cured of his zombie infection. That’s why most of the other zombies look like him and are wearing the same clothes as he is but none of the Villagers or Illagers do. When Pigmen come to the regular world they become Zombie Pigmen within seconds so why are the players immune and don’t contract the Zombie infection even when being attacked like Villagers do?

Here’s my theory So I agree about the master builders and how they turned into enderman. I don’t agree that they were fleeing from wither but Zombies. There was a zombie created by lightning like how pigs are turned into zombie piglins. The zombies become so large in population that they flee to neather. They bring their pigs to have a food source but slowly evolve into piglins and zombie pigglins. They then flee from nether because it is dangerous and go to the end. Zombies find them there so they are forced to hop in, but can’t come back. It’s just a theory :)

I actually got zombies to spawn in the nether multiple times. All I was doing was farming zombie piglins for xp, and every now and then as more would spawn to kill me, some normal zombies would spawn along with them. Not sure if it's relevant to the theory, but it was consistent enough for me.

Piglins resorted to cannibalism before nether wart, so they dont have psychic link (since they hunt hoglins) or maybe have a mixed diet Hoglins eat crimson fungus so they probably have an underdeveloped set of psychic connection We were a villager who didn't like the simple life and left the village (hence the ability to spawn a bonus chest or map before you leave - the things you brought with you) Shulkers, magma cubes, ghasts, and slimes all need some study

aguiar 6 dager siden
I think you forgot something Matt. Infectious diseases normally don't spread from one species to another, unless there's a mutation in the virus or bacteria. Even in that case, there would have to be extensive exposure from the piglins to our atmosphere for it to finally be affected by a mutated virus. This might mean that piglins are a descendant of the original race of humans who went to the nether? Maybe a video talking about the nether ecosystem and why the piglins aren't attacked by ghasts is in order?

My theory on the video: the ancient civilization first started making structures and eventually gathered technology and created a dimension (which eventually got lost) that brought in villagers with there diseases and the villagers tried secretly experimenting on the civilization and they started to mutate into "creppers" Which carried diseases and everytime they exploded the disease spread (the villagers that experimented got expelled from the village which created "witches" And all of the others at the woodland mansion)

I have a theory on what zombies and skeletons really are. We all know that the old age of builders fled to end to escape the wither. However I think it makes more since that zombies and skeletons are not failed experiments or anything by else. It makes more sense to me to think that they are the ancient builders that DIDNT go to the end. That monster is called the “wither” after all. My theory is that the builders who stayed in the overworld were defeated and “withered” into zombies and skeletons. Thank you for reading that’s just what I think personally. (Keep in mind I don’t think it’s a virus because the player does not become a zombie after death. In face nothing besides the villagers turns undead after being killed either.)
