    This is a possibly pointless detail, but when you look from the enderman's eyes in spectator mode, the colors are reversed. So end stone looks like cobblestone.

    You should talk about the fossils found underground in Minecraft. Perhaps large beasts roamed the lands eons ago.

    What if endermen came from the nether. They share the same eye colour as the nether portal. What if the portal they made to our dimension was made to escape the hell they created in the nether.

    Endermites could be a pest that feeds of ender pearls and that's why ender men don't like them.

    My Theory: I hope the creator of this video reads this comment and takes it seriously because I have some criticism, and my own theory. Scientifically speaking, you should go where the evidence leads, and not speculate. The strongholds do provide evidence that people traveled to the end. The chests and structures provide evidence that people made those structures, or at least built those chests. However, the rest of your theory is just speculation. There is no evidence for Minecraft evolution. Similarities don't determine causality. Endermen looking like humans doesn't prove they were humans, or vice versa. Just like correlation doesn't determine causality. But what we can do is look at all the evidence to see where it leads without unnecessary speculation. I'll also throw in some deductive reasoning. I'll leave off where you did before the evolution theory, starting with the ender dragon itself. 1) The ender dragon is in the end. 2) It gains health from those giant beacons. 3) It tries to kill you. Looking at point three: The fact that there is a flying dragon trying to kill anyone who comes to the end shows that people probably wouldn't have had time to build structures or do anything productive. However, those beacons couldn't have shown up by themselves. They are a structures that are very complicated and advanced. Someone or something must have built them. That leaves us with some possibilities. 1) Either the structures and health beacons were built by an entity before the dragon was there. 2)Those structures and health beacons were built by a people who the dragon was passive to, or tamed by. Because the beacons heal the dragon, the evidence shows they were probably built for the dragon. Therefore I lean on possibility 2. Because the chests look man made, it looks like people were the ones to build them. Therefore, people possibly built even the structures in the end, and the beacons. What about the enderman in question? There are no clues about them other than their ability to pick up blocks and maybe talk. Based on the evidence, there is no reason to believe that endermen weren't there at the beginning when people and the rest of the game was created. Since we know they come from the end, and they teleport, and there is no way to the end except through ender pearls which only endermen drop. Evidence shows that endermen found their way to earth from the end before humans found their way to the end. Here's a better question: Where did the dragon come from. We know that all living things reproduce, so I theorize there are other dragons. Did they come from somewhere else other than the end, or from the end itself? We don't know. There is no evidence either way. Cliffff hangger. Hope y'all took the time to read this. I think it's pretty well thought out based on the evidence. At least I hope the creator of this video takes it into consideration.

    Or maybe this game is just a regular game with NO lore at all. Just for the enjoyment.

  • Clayton Yarbrough

    So try this... Endermen are the original angelic type guardians of the end. They endermen eventually learned to communicate with men to warn man of an apocalypse that eventually killed off everyone but Steve and Alex.

    I think that the endermen were friends with the dragon, and they built pillars to heal it. And they couldn't kill their friend. Maybe the dragon saved them?

    About the dragon head on the end ship thing, I have a theory that they DID
    defeat the Ender Dragon, but the dragon egg hatched, which is why there is a
    dragon, it’s the baby.
    MatPat I had the idea for what happened to the mine shafts

    I think why endermen hate endermites is that endermen before got some sort of virus from endermites

  • Me and Friends Vlogs1!

    If the ender man were humans and don’t know how to use weapons then would they try to defeat the ender dragon. Then would they still have the ability to use weapons if they wanted to go back to the overworld then would they still know how to use weapons

    But if the endermwn are stuck how are a significant number of them in the overworld prior to the defeat of the dragon? Wouldn't they all be isolated to the region known as the end?
