Top 10 Biggest Game Theory Mistakes

Everybody makes mistakes, even Game Theory, the show that is hosted by a "doo doo brain". Try to at least give Matthew Patrick some slack.
The Top Ten
1 Game Theory: Why Mario Is Mental, Part 1

Mario is mental? I think not! Here's something wrong here!

1. Mr. MatPat says Mario kills a Wiggler in Super Mario Sunshine and destroys its home. There's a correction. Mario needs to kill it in a mission called Mirror Madness! Tilt, Slam, Bam. Why does he need to kill it? Here's why. Right when Mario starts his mission, he finds a local saying that the Wiggler is napping on top of the tower and also stating this: "This could endanger the legendary Sand Bird egg." Convinced now? You really shouldn't have said Mario kills an "innocent" Wiggler in Super Mario Sunshine, Mr. MatPat.

2. Do you remember when MatPat said that Mario punches Yoshi to use its tongue? Well, he's wrong. Mario doesn't punch Yoshi in Super Mario World or Super Mario Galaxy 2. He's pointing, not punching Yoshi. He also points in New Super Mario Bros. Wii. So, Mario doesn't seem to abuse Yoshi, does he?

3. Speaking of New Super Mario Bros. Wii, MatPat stated Mario and Peach leave Luigi and do not encourage him. Is this because they close the door right behind him? Well, when you look at the door to the air balloon, it closes by itself. Nobody notices, not even Luigi. Also, Luigi and the Toads are Mario's helpers, so that's why they float in a balloon together and not with Mario and Peach.

There! Maybe now you're convinced Game Theory was wrong about Mario. He isn't mental.

2 Game Theory: UNDERTALE - Sans's SECRET Identity!

Undertale and Earthbound are made by different creators. Earthbound belongs to Nintendo. Undertale belongs to Toby Fox. Nintendo has Ness. Undertale has Sans. Nintendo and Toby Fox both have their own copyrights. Undertale has nowhere near the rights to use any of Nintendo's characters. Toby Fox can't make money off of Earthbound characters. Sans being Ness would give Toby Fox a copyright lawsuit. Since Toby Fox is a game developer who actually makes money off of his game, he would HAVE to know that taking characters from other people's games and putting them into his own games is wrong. In conclusion, SANS CAN'T BE NESS!

3 Game Theory: Why Mario Is Mental, Part 2

1. MatPat stated that there's no Peach toy in the Mario vs. Donkey Kong series. No Peach toy? There is a Peach toy, MatPat. You probably never saw one before.

2. Mario IS A MURDERER! Wait! Maybe he's not. It's probably the gamers. Yes! We all know the Toads are turned into brick blocks and they die after being smashed into pieces. But let's think about it. Try going through the first level in Super Mario Bros. without smashing a brick block. You'll see that you've murdered no Toads. Now, try again and this time, smash a brick block. You are a serial killer. BUT WAIT! I'm not done here. So, who controls Mario? You! That's right, you! The one that is playing Super Mario Bros. controls Mario and makes him smash brick blocks. Does this mean we, the gamers, have made Mario a serial killer? Maybe we did, or we didn't.

Also, why do we get points for killing a Toad? Why do Toads give you two middle fingers after saving them? And why does nobody, I mean, nobody, seriously, NOBODY care about Mario killing Toads? Those questions remain unsolved. I'll let you decide.

Time for me to say it. Game Theory, you are wrong! Mario is not mental. Also, for those of you that are saying that Mr. MatPat ruined your childhood, shut up! His show is called Game Theory, not Childhood Ruiner. Stupid Game Theory haters! There you go! Mario is a hero, not a villain. But hey, let's give Mr. MatPat some slack. It's just a theory, a Game Theory!

4 Game Theory: Phoenix Wright is a Criminal

That whole video was just a big no, made disregarding in-game lore and ignoring the real system it was based on.

5 Game Theory: Who Would Win -- Samurai, Knight, or Viking? (For Honor)

He completely forgot about the existence of shields. When people started commenting about his mistakes, he threw a hissy fit and started whining. He was debunked by about three different YouTube channels specializing in this subject. This isn't even something that you could argue with lore. He repeatedly screwed up historical facts.

One of the worst, most inaccurate, trite theories he has ever made.

6 Game Theory: Wii U Is The Next Virtual Boy

He literally complains how the Wii U didn't come bundled with a game, even though it's almost impossible to find one without a game. That would be like MatPat scolding Nintendo for not porting any Sonic the Hedgehog games to the Super Nintendo.

7 Game Theory: Rosalina is Peach's Mother

It's actually stated in multiple sources that "When the game was being developed, the creators were originally going to make Rosalina related to Peach in some way, but ultimately decided against it." This came long before his theory, making both videos redundant in the first place.

Every single human character in the games has blue eyes except for Wario and Waluigi. Every single character has attached earlobes. The two trees are clearly not the same kind or in the same location. Luigi and Peach have no interest in each other, and the picture at the end is probably a hint that Luigi x Rosalina is possible. The telescope is an illusion and not a real telescope. Also, you disproved your own theory.

"Rosalina was originally going to be related to Princess Peach"


8 Game Theory: Fart Rocket Physics With The Wario Waft-"Wario is practically 10 feet tall."

I've seen the Mario is Mental and Wii U videos, and they at least have some point to them. This video is just a complete mistake. It's based entirely on mathematical flaws, leading to one of the greatest mess-ups in MatPat's history. He even referenced it in his Mario is Communist video, which was a funny reference.

Why does he think Wario is taller than Samus when clearly Samus is taller than Wario?

These theories can be pretty weird at times, but this one was just ridiculous.

9 Game Theory: Toad's Deadly Secret

I don't agree with a lot of MatPat's theories, but he is not THAT BAD lol.

10 Game Theory: Who is W.D. Gaster - Four Minute Detour Complaining About His Hate

None of his evidences are true. Sans doesn't always use his left. When he tried to prove that Gaster is Sans and Papyrus, he didn't solve the other contradictions like: Who are the two Gaster was speaking to? How can they be him if he was already shattered in time and space and one of his followers had a piece of him? Is splitting into two skeletons called shattering? Why did the guy who is alleged to be Gaster disappear? Does Papyrus also have the power of transporting through time and space?

One of the worst and most annoying things he has done.

The Contenders
11 Game Theory: How Fast is Sonic the Hedgehog?

He restores time and space with his speed in Sonic Generations. In Sonic Unleashed, the Light Speed Dash is 390 SPD while Sonic can run over nine times faster, up to 3,519 SPD.

He used Modern Sonic's height to scale a Classic Sonic game.

Also, Sonic travels at 321 meters/second. When he side steps in the modern games, he maintains his speed. And also, why does he only go 321? He's so close to the sound barrier...

He doesn't want to. Sonic booms (breaking the sound barrier) cause explosions. He doesn't want to destroy his home of Green Hill.

Now, you're thinking, "He wants to destroy Eggman's bases! He doesn't break the barrier then!" Wrong. Sonic is also considering his own safety. Have you not seen Scrap Brain Zone?!

12 Telling His Fans to Harass Ellen DeGeneres About His Theory of Dory Faking Her Short Term Memory Loss
13 Game Theory: Best Breasts in Gaming

What was this guy thinking? Was he drunk or is he mental? I'm thinking both! I'm surprised YouTube didn't take his video down!

Holy Grail! What the hell was he thinking of? Rosalina?

14 Treating Mario Like the Devil

All they do is ruin Mario's reputation.

15 Believing that the Universe Resets in Super Mario Galaxy

The reason I put this on the list is because I know what was MEANT to be the point. In the ending cutscene of Super Mario Galaxy (the first one), after Mario got knocked out, Rosalina tells Mario that when a star dies, it scatters stardust and star bits everywhere. When it piles up enough, it will turn into a new galaxy. However, MatPat concludes that when Rosalina says, "But the cycle always differs slightly," which is what Rosalina MEANT to say, he thinks she means instead of "the new galaxies make new planets, new creatures, and new environments," he thinks she meant "the universe (or as he says the galaxy) resets every so often and has different things changed, created, or disappeared."

If you find out that what was meant to be the case was that no two galaxies are ever the exact same even if they have similarities between them, it basically debunks the ENTIRE theory. (And yes, I know that Peach and Rosalina were going to be related but it was decided not to and I can debunk the theory with that one statement. I'm just showing that off, okay?)

16 The Team Fortress 2 vs Overwatch

This video has more errors about both games than there are stars in the universe.

17 Creating the Channel

When he made his channel, he knew that it would get popular. Now that it is popular, he is able to get views with absolutely no effort. You can't just name a channel Game Theory or The Game Theorists without self-asserting that you are the be-all end-all and everything you state is fact. And saying That's just a theory at the end is smug and inconsiderate. Other theorists do a better job.

The biggest mistake this whack job "theorist" has ever made.

18 Game Theory: The Gender Of Team Fortress 2's Pyro

Valve has confirmed that there were no female classes in the production of TF2. There is even unused audio for Meet the Pyro that confirms it as male.

19 Game Theory: Why I gave the Pope UNDERTALE

When I saw this video, I started cringing and having flashbacks to the "Sans is Ness" episode at the same time. I like both Game Theory and Undertale, but this is just awful. To be honest, it's fans like these that give good franchises such bad reputations.

It is literally clickbait for any Undertale fan that exists in the realm of humanity.

Come on, a copy of a game isn't that bad.

20 Game Theory: Portal's Companion Cube Has A Dark Secret

He cherry-picks evidence for his theory, even outright fabricating some of it (such as the claim that the Companion Cube screams when it's incinerated. It's actually a sound the radio makes that he's taken out of context) and jumps to conclusions based on little evidence that contradicts established canon. The video just rubbed me the wrong way.

21 Does Luigi MEASURE Up

When getting Mario's measure from a Japanese comic, something that MatPat didn't take into consideration nor think of was that the Japanese style like that most penises are that size. I've seen it a lot actually, even in old art at a recent Nude Renaissance exhibit at the Getty Museum. Because of this, the actual size cannot be determined from this comic due to the specific style of it.

And to be fair, they probably did that because if they made it any bigger or what they'd possibly consider to be his canonical size, then it would be deemed inappropriate. The size that it's at within the art is a little more palatable.

Thank you for listening to my TED Talk.

22 Game Theory: Morph Ball is Lame

Morph Ball has many useful applications. It is not just something born out of coding issues.

For example, when a physical force hits a sphere, it has to be dead on for it to do any real damage. If it is not, then the force will bounce right off. Morph Ball also allows access to bombs and power bombs, and traversing surfaces that a magnet can stick to. Morph Ball also allows more mobility, as shown when Samus dodges Gandrayda's attack before the fight.

I hate how he tells us to curl up into a ball so that he can laugh at us!

23 Attacking Other People's Gifts to The Pope Compared to His

No one should ever attack anyone else's opinions or actions unless they harm someone.

24 Super Mario Odyssey's GIANT Problem

I think Mario's height being 5 feet has changed. The original image that says he's 5'1 set Luigi up to Peach's height, and Peach is currently a little bit taller than Luigi. Not to mention things do change over time (like Mario no longer being a plumber). I believe Mario shrunk in size, and the humans are normal-sized.

He measured the humans based on Mario's statue height despite what the interviews with Yoshiaki Koizumi said about using the humans to measure Mario.

25 Luigi and Peach are Rosalina's Parents

Nintendo did not confirm this.
