I'm late but, what if the guardians, which we've calified are not exactly natural, are powered by gold. In real life gold is the best electricity conductor, but it's hard to get gold. Minecraft already shows that gold works with redstone with powered rails and stuff of that nature. With so much gold if it's carrying electricity, it makes sense to cover it up to the water. If gold powers these guardians I wouldn't doubt that many previous civilizations would this it had some sort of magical properties that they would base a religion around. We never really see fully inside a guardian so there could very well be gold inside.

At 14:57 i know exactly where he got that immage of the overgrown simi ruined city, it is one of the title screen images from the twitch minecraft modpack overgrown which is actual procedural generation from that modpack, with a shader but other than that the same modpack, that is the whole map even infinite worlds it actually is one of the best modpacks on twitch

Guardians in Minecraft:
-has a lazar
-Lazar needs time to charge up
-Have a singular eye
Guardians in BOTW:
-have a single eye
-Lazar needs time to charge up
-Shoots a lazar.
Edit: they’re both machines too made by ancient people/s (the Sheikah can be considered ancient right?)

MatPat: "The Guardians aren't made of flesh but rather of prismarine"
Me: But what if they are made of flesh, and prismarine is the flesh of dead guardians? And also, that means if you decorate your house with prismarie blocks you are actually decorating your house with dead guard-
Ok, the decorating your house with dead guardians didn't have to be said, and I'm bad at making theories.

Solid theory, but I don’t think notch would have allowed that. You know, given the whole twitter thing

Furthermore supporting the idea of the ocean monument being of religious significance is the fact they're called ELDER guardians. Elder being the word used to describe a person of authority in a Christian Church. I'm aware Islam and Christianity aren't the same but they have a TON of similarities. There being only a few elders but a ton of normal guardians indicates this monuments power structure is similar to that of a church. :) But that's just a thought

FYI the Quran first verse is "read_read by the name of God " just for knowledge and stuff like that idk if that we'll help in the theory But the whole 23 doesn't make sense to me cause the day that Quran was told to Mohamed it's just unknown all we know it was at the last 10 days of ramdan just wanted to correct this information I am Muslim btw

Y’know, I always thought guardians looked like prismarine because of camouflage, and they dropped it because they’re dumb and accidentally eat it along with their food. I guess I was wrong, because MatPat’s theory makes much more sense

I know I’m *very* late to this, but I thought I’d note this little tidbit for anyone in the future. In the treasure room, there are the eight gold blocks, and Mat stated the temple was dedicated to worship some type of god. Keep in mind that Notch was the *creator* of the Minecraft universe, and EIGHT golden blocks are needed to create a Notch Apple. You can see the links from there.

I think that the reason the eyes are red is because it's using redstone to power the laser
How do they retract their spikes?
