    Imagine a creepypasta where your wolf needs to be domasticated, so you give a bone to the ally because you fell one will not be enough for domesticating the wolf, and than the ally starts to rip you to shreds, piece by piece, to get more bones, this could be weaponized....

    The allays are the souls of the ancient builders who’ve accepted death and are at peace, and the vexes are those who are still vengeful. The pillagers have found a way to turn the peaceful souls into vengeful ones by combining them

      @Nathan Ramage makes sense. remindes me that Steve is still a human with a lot of unknown past except the fact he is the descendent of the ancients but even their past is still not completely known.

    • Nathan Ramage
      Nathan Ramage Před měsícem +5

      @Antony Brooks well, steve doesn't just BECOME, he has to come from somewhere. Maybe some accident from wherever he hails from led to amnesia, which is why you spawn in a random location and the world is so unknown to you, but your Ancient Builder instincts to explore and create are still in you. The trauma of the accident which leaves you alone in the middle of nowhere may have happened in a cave or in the dark, which Steve would've forgotten exactly what, but would still be tense or afraid underground, where its dark, which manifests itself as sounds and noises. This could explain the dark tan Steve has, and the stubble. He's lost, too far away to find home (the minecraft world may be millions of blocks but a block is a cubic meter, so that's 1000s of kilometers), and alone.

  • Merp

    something i'd like to add that wasn't mentioned in here is the fact that the sculk blocks, particularly sculk sensors, reuse some sound clips from vexes, further connecting them back to souls. also, a few of the sounds for walking on soul sand with the soul speed enchantment are literally slowed down versions of sound clips from vexes. AND, by extension, the sounds used for sculk shriekers are stretched out versions of those same audio clips. i think that alone goes to show that sound design really does play a HUGE part in the lore of the game.

      * I have a little theory that the allay and warden are somewhat alike if you look at the middle of the warden exposed structure you can see 3 souls the exact max number of allays can spawn now that may not sound like much considering the fact that how could allays find themselves in the deep dark however there's a structure you can find in the ancient cities that looks very similar to a structure in the woodland mansions (so maybe the ill's first place to settle was underground in the ancient cities) and if it's true that the illagers were still using allays as little experiments than just maybe the warden and allay may have more in common than just looking alike (as the warden werid patch of sculk on its head looks very similar to the allays hair patch)*
      *Bonus: while I was amplifying the warden roar if you change the sound and lower the pitch it sounds very similar to the allay happy noice*

  • 🍄 Tnynfox 🍄

    Whilst in the Mansion, I had a theory that the Allays were players the Illagers captured and slowly tortured to death. That would explain why iron doors were used, and why the Allay knows how to collect items.

    Another design feature seen on the Allays, yet not on the Vex, is that their head is disproportionelly large compared to their body, implying they are children, since children of mobs, even villagers, have larger heads than the adults

    May pat play disks 5, 11, and 13 together with them starting at their number corresponding to seconds. For example start the 5 disk wait 6 seconds and start the 11 then 2 seconds start 13. The audio lines up to make sense maybe try incorporating that into your next theory.

  • 🐷 👑 technoblade RIP
    🐷 👑 technoblade RIP Před 3 měsíci +3

    Theory: the ancient builders found the sculk and saw how it could be harnessed so they created the sensor and shrieker and constructed the warden statue as a way to show tribute to the warden for protecting them from the wither

  • Newb.

    You should really make a theory about the strays. Just the name alone, stray, meaning to move away aimlessly from a group or from the right course or place. or not in the right place; separated from the group or target. (yes I looked these up cause I couldn't be bothered typing it). Plus, Strays are literally just skeletons wearing clothes and spawn in snowy biomes

    Hey MatPat! I had this crazy theory and I'm not sure if you said anything like it or not. So during the ancient city raids I've done, I began to notice something a bit odd. They have blocks only acquired from the nether. BUT they don't have a nether portal. I assume the ancient builders somehow toggle where the giant portal in the middle of the city goes. It may be possible as we don't FULLY understand how the portal works.

      Wait a second
      "Uneasy Alliance"
      Maybe the Evokers used totem of undying on Ghasts after killing them in the overworld and that turned them into Allays and they converted Allays to Vexes. We know Evokers travelled the nether since they created the Wither which requires wither heads and soul sand.

    Erin Haselwood Před 4 měsíci +1316

    Adding another layer on to this theory, perhaps the allay are the result of the ancient builders attempting to bring the spirits of their children back from the dead. This would not only explain why they are smaller than you, but also their playful nature. (dancing, laughing, chasing after you, etc.) This could also mean when you give an allay an item, they see that action as you accepting them into your family. You are affectively a parental figure.

  • Just Some Jersey Devil With Internet Access

    7:50 When I hear "Nether" in the context of minecraft lore and souls I immediately think _Soul Magic._ The "Soul Entity" or "Soul Wizard" is proof that you can use the souls of soul sand to make allied spirit mobs with soul sand; in Minecraft Dungeons you can use a modofied Soul Lantern to summon one of these Soul Entities, complete with odd robes and a red tie at the waist. Perhaps the Allay was once from there as an escaped soul from the sand, which helps you once it gets to the overworld.

  • SoundRogue
    SoundRogue Před 4 měsíci +3

    9:16 you could easily; just like how hawking's Radiation comes out of Black Holes or even just have the creature be spawned from the soul soil itself because it's just pooped out. That or the fact it adapted to it's environment; we have countless examples in nature of animals that should've died because of it's environment but rapidly evolved to counter said problems. Venus Flytrap family is a great example. Hell one version of the Venus flytrap family doesn't even eat animals but adapted to directly eat poop.
    Granted those concepts are harder to explain to kids... so yeah you're correct Matpat.

    personal thought: the allays have incomplete memories - they want the items, but they don’t know why. they dance to the music that they know, but they can’t remember from where. they watch you with both childlike joy and profound sadness, as though they recognise you but don’t know how. but they help you all the same, because it’s all they know.

  • Nuclear Wyvern
    Nuclear Wyvern Před 4 měsíci +1081

    Mini theory: Why is soul soil called soul SOIL specifically? Well since it is called soil, it implies it’s meant to grow things, but soul soil CANNOT be used to grow nether wart. So what does it grow? Souls. In a manner of speaking. Soul soil is just soul sand that hasn’t had souls infused into it yet, and soul sand is just soul soil that served its purpose; to harbor the souls of the dead. This would be why the sounds of soul soil being placed don’t include ghostly sounds like placing soul sand does, and why soul soil doesn’t slow down the player when walked on like soul sand does. I don’t know if I’m the only one to think of this but it fits PERFECTLY as far as I can tell.

  • Mystery
    Mystery Před 4 měsíci +1387

    PERSONAL THEORY : i think the allay are actually the children of the ancient builders. I think they help you because you look like their family. Considering the builders couldnt alway be advanced they could have started out with helping the dying children. Because they look like steve but smaller more like baby zombies.
    Edit: hello! So i just looked it up and found the "happy birthday achievement" which damn the feelings but i think thats the reason they like note blocks it reminds them of when they were alive and when they were with the family every birthday and listening to the music disc and noteblocks.

    I saw some wool of Steve's colors in the ancient city, causing me to come up with my own theory
    Steve, is an AI created by the ancient civilization after they realized the sculk has taken over
    The wool explains that it was either clothes, or cloth-like design
    Steve being an AI also explains his superhuman nature

    I'm also seeing connections between Allays and fairies. As some have already pointed out, the Allay's large head implies they may very well be children, given the trend of child mobs in Minecraft. Fairies, Pixies in particular, are often said to be very child-like in both appearance and demeanor, and some myths say they are the souls of children who have died.

    @The Game Theorist
    I would like to bring to your attention that the discs 11,13, and 5 are the only ones that have a number in their names. Now, what if this is because somewhere in the future other discs such as discs 1,2,3,4,6,7,8,9,10, and 12 will be added to the game. Also what if once these other discs are added, you can listen to them in numerical order and be able to tell a whole story about the past of Minecraft.

Mojang has confirmed that the two are connected, and I'm curious as to how MatPat would fit it all together, especially with very lore-deep features (such as the Necromancer mob in Dungeons).

    Imagine if the Allay had some sort of connection with the Endermen. If MatPat's entire ancient builder theory is correct, then they may recognize the Endermen. Or maybe the Endermen recognize the Allay through their now-twisted and corrupt worldview, like a sense of clarity, so-to-speak. What if you could look at the Endermen when an Allay is present and they won't attack, or there's a special little animation that occurs when they get close. Mojang is keeping it all so discreet 😭

    Inside of the ancient cities, some of the broken structures actually have bridges made of dark oak wood in the same sort lf architecture as the vindicators, you can even find large houses made of light blue, dark blue and cyan wool. These houses have dark oak and campfires within. Did the vindicators somehow reach there? Perhaps this is how they made the totems of undying? Or maybe this is why they are obsessed with making a steve like construct?

    In the little ‘cutscene’ they called the ancient builders ‘Master builders.

    I have a different thought. Rather than being undead spirits born from past builders (since their nether connections are no longer canon) I think its more likely that they are just a seperate species who the builders befriended and used to help them build, which means that they find purpose in helping you because you remind them of the friends they had way back when nd give them purpose again.
    It's kinda like pigeons in a weird way. They were bred to carry things for humanity for years and years but were eventually abandoned to nature but now instinctually hang around humans due to their past kinship (thats a real thing btw, I might've gotten a detail wrong but thats a real fact)

    I'm guessing they don't because it's grown alien to them along with why Endermen aren't just always passive because they're old form has grown alien to them but they don't immediately attack you because you're not being hostile to them and there is something about the look about you that reminds them of something they just can't remember what it is anymore

    so i have a theory about minecraft and the illagers. So the first thing i want to point out is that in minecraft dungeons when you kill a mob, their bodies turn gray. this happens to all hostile mobs except for the illagers. I think the reason why is because illagers are probably bodies of villagers resurrected, but the side effects were that they are now evil. either that or maybe villagers just wouldnt want to welcome a literal walking corpse. now you might think theyre just pale which is probably right, but their skin is the SAME shade of grey that you see when you kill a mob in minecraft dungeons. reply if you think yes or if you have another theory.

  • Just Some Jersey Devil With Internet Access

    You should DEFINITELY play through Minecraft Dungeons. It's a blast, it's canon as in-setting, and it's CHOCK. FULL. of lore; Statues of Players wearing phantom armor kneeling in service to a lich king, Proto-illagers taking to the seas to escape resource rarity as depicted by murals in an ocean temple, the broken battlements and netherite-reinforced, lava-fueled industry of The Piglins, ancient chainsaws still glowing with the heat of the nether and Void-magic seeping into the weapons of the long lost player nation during their last days in The End City, wraiths haunting an EXECUTION CHAMBER and a LITERAL HANGING CROSS, deep in the basement of a castle that might not always have belonged to The Illagers, creeper totems that summon them, and So Much More.
