The theory of humans transferring their minds to the robots can also be confirmed by the fact that in the control room at the end of the game the robots there are still just emotionless robots even after so long.

I have a different theory actually regarding the zurk collective in the underground levels of the megastructure. While I do agree that they are not affected by UV light, I don't think they're as much of a threat per se. Another important fact that needs to be looked at is that, if they can consume plastics and metal, then why isn't there more structural damage down there? I think the answer is because the mega colony is composed of a form of zurk that cannot eat normally. Full eusociality: the smaller zurk you see are drones, the hunters, the ones that come back and bring food to the larger hive, which then uses the food to spawn more drones in order to feed itself. Without the UV sensitive drones/workers, the hive as a whole will starve.

Also, in the ant village, there's a robot named Isaac sleeping on a couch, when you talk to him he's dreaming about "electric zurks everywhere", could kinda be foreshadowing for when the zurks learn from the robots and become them

Only issue with the theory; the Zurk eye-mind can’t actually harm anything, they can only control smaller Zurks. If we assume Zurks have to evolve to achieve their “eye” form, eyes won’t appear on the surface because they need to be able to grow in prolonged dark to grow into eyes.

Yeah, cats be like that sometimes. Another thing we looked over is that how robots and the zurcs technically had access to the open world. The cat we played as just *fell down* into the underground world, he didnt bypass a lock that kept them. Regardless of Cat's action Zurcs would be the dominant species after all.

I think a pretty simple explanation to why the eyes aren't affected would be that the UV light just simply isn't strong enough coming from a little lamp. Pretty sure the sun would be much stronger and another possibility could be that they simply require longer exposure to UV light in order for them to start taking noticeable damage.
Mikołaj W
Mikołaj W Πριν μήνα
You know, one thing does not make sense in your theory. The cat has fallen into the city through somewhere, and if I get it right (haven't played the game yet), travelled to the actual populated area through zurk territory, right? That means the zurk already had acces to the surface, so if they were actually intelligent enough to come up with that plan, they'd have done it already, or done it in the future regardless of whether B/12 openned the city to the surface or not. So... no, I do not believe the cute kitty doomed the world, because IF your theory is right then the world was doomed to begin with.

It's not just that the eye walls are incredibly disturbing, they're also sentient.. they actively control and release zurks in an attempt to stop whatever you're doing.. so if they needed the door to open, why would they be trying to stop you? 🤔 there's gotta be something deeper here that we're missing.

That has always been a mystery to me because when the eyelids open to reveal the eyeballs and the zurks fall, it's almost as if they appear out of thin air... 😶🙄😲 Like, we know, they are alerted by the eyeballs to attack the cat but where exactly do they fall from? 🤔🤔🤔🤔🤔

I think this theory could use some more depth. For example, while that day count might be accurate to the companion robots, that might not be accurate to "days" as we consider them. If the robots do not recall things properly, they might only know that day and night are things, and not how long they are. Especially when they have no access to the sun in order to track it by the sun. This could explain why so many "human" things still exist, why cats are still cats and not evolved into something new and why the sun hasn't changed at all. I would love to hear more theories based on that assumption!

Damn, I like this theory so much. at first I thought Matpat gonna touch the question of "where are the human remnants? a.k.a. the bones" because, what if the zurks are not just zurks, but a new human sub-species that adapt by conjoining themselves with the zurks? That's why 1.21 GW UV light does not affect them at all, because we are able to withstand the sun better than the zurks. while B-12 and the companions are the remaining humans who went digital, what if the current zurks were the remnants of human species who evolved to adapt as the zurk's sub-species? this kinda explains how the zurks have the capability of intelligence to study the robot in the sewer, to get their ways into the network. You're welcome :)

Please guys, believe in Jesus ❤️. Doomsday is on the horizon. Believe Jesus is the Son of God. Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord. Read the Bible! Try to repent of your sins. "If anyone is ashamed of me and my message in these adulterous and sinful days, the Son of Man will be ashamed of that person when he returns in the glory of his Father with the holy angels.” Our Saviour Jesus Christ died so that we will live. Jesus said, "I'm the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me". John 14:6.

I had came to the same conclusion after playing stray that all the robots were human ones. The robots in the game act too human to not be and if b-12 did become a robot then whos to say that everyone in there followed suite. I heard they are making a second one so I hope it proves the theory and we get answers.

I've also wondered how is Doc the "father" of Seamus; I see it as two possible ways, one more plausible than the other. The first being that Doc would have built Seamus, but that just doesn't really feel right at all. But it aligns pretty neatly if they were actually father and son, humans who uploaded themselves into companions. That'd make a lot of sense!

Fun little insight: Stray's cats have round pupils. Most small cats have vertical pupils because they're ambush predators. But a few have evolved round pupils instead, indicating that they've adapted to be better daytime chasers rather than nighttime ambushers. This could be in part a product of domestication, where cats are more likely to adapt to their owners' daytime schedules, and aren't pressured into the same ecological niche because humans protect and feed them.

If you look normally at them, they seem like they have round pupils, but looking closer [ very closer ] you can see they just a narrow line. So I can't say 100% they actually round up )
Adrien Starfaer

I think it has more to do with the light level in the game. Cats' pupils dilate just like us, and when they're pupils are larger to take in more light in dark areas, they appear round. But if you look at them when they're looking outside and chittering at birds, their pupils are smaller and vertical.

I did think about the fact that the sunlight won't be able to reach into the sewers and the zurks down there would still be able to exist and I also thought it was strange to see a companion melted into the wall but not eaten and hooked up to computers. So there may be definitely something to that. Maybe eventually the zurks will figure out how the companions work but it will take many years perhaps centuries. The eyes in the sewer walls genuinely scared me and that part was the creepiest part of the game.

One interesting theory that could be a mini theory if you ever make another Stray theory is that Doc is the only robot called a dad or even a mom or parent in the game. Literally no one else mentions their parents or their children other than Doc (Seamus' father), Seamus (Doc's son) and B-12 (a human). My guess is Doc is the only companion smart enough to be able to built a new companion,hence why he is called a parent and no one else is, he's the only genius inventor we see in the game who could make a new one.

actually alot of the lines about AIs "remembering memories" DO make sense from an AI perspective, if they were force-fed a ton of human info as refrence data, they would definitely say something like "i love the smell of fresh paint" if they required a conversation starter, even if they cant smell, they know that humans do smell, and they sometimes like the smell of fresh paint edit: haircuts and eating and the like could be just artistic interpretations of actions that they cant normally do, like they might think their wires in their head are hairs, or they might think that if they hold a bottle up to their "mouth" (open or closed), that it will magically dissapear

matpat probably forgot one thing, everything other than humans evolves to live longer, and the zurks bacteria evolves to reproduce a ton more as mites, and I can't think of anything about those giant eyes other than a gimmick created to give a scare to the players. They're probably just some watcher with information network but I don't think we saw any big complex network a.k.a. brain. There was one big eyeball, but that's all, and it's still weird as most sensory organ would be created after the main brain, and that tells us there's a brain of zurk somewhere deep under. It also is weird how the eyes are resistant to UV lights when all creatures retina would be damaged by UV light no matter the genes as UV lights destroys genes, and retina have to accepts lights including UV lights and that's such an irony (I just thought of someone creating UV filter soft lens someday in the future to protect our eyes from UV damage).

The theory of humans transferring their minds to the robots can also be confirmed by the fact that in the control room at the end of the game the robots there are still just emotionless robots even after so long.

The idea that the robots are actually human has a lot of validity like the fact that the cleaning robots on the top level don't have personality though they are probably the same age as the rest of the robots if not older because they actually have jobs

@Aesthetics if we're going with the timeline that this theory is true, the only answer that i can think of is that, those robots were made by humans to help them, then the robots that act like human just rashly poured their consciousness and memories to the robots, thats probably why the robots up there are just robots cause they were not human in the first place

All things considered, if this theory is accurate, the Cat merely expedited the doom of the planet. Sure, being able to bypass the security would have been handy, but they've been undermining the structure of the Dead City for literally eons, and would likely eventually break out of the City, even without the intervention of the Cat.

Hey, Matpat. I have a theory suggestion that I need to solve for science. The theory is: What is Kirby's actual size? It's said that he's only 8 inches tall, but in the most recent Kirby game, he's almost large enough to reach the hood of a car. What's up with that?

Fun Fact : The Game takes place in City 99. So we could presume there are at least, 98 other bastions of humanity left in Stray's World. Bastions that could've thrived better than City 99. Cities that didn't fall to any kind of plague or Zurk infestation. Perhaps with help from The Humans, The Companions can fully eradicate The Zurks before they become a fully realized threat.

Hey MatPat, I been recently playing a game that I think you would find very, very interesting, its called rainbow friends and I think it might have some dark lore, it’s sorta like fnaf sister location and poppy playtime (Both things you’ve covered on this amazing channel) but with less nights/chapters, just wanted to inform you. :>

Hey Mat, I’ve been watching content since 2015 and I love it!!!. I love the fnaf theory soo much . Okay know I’m going to talk about why I commented this, One day while I was watching Cartoon Network late at night something popped up I’m sure you know what I’m talking about when I say Adult Swim, let’s just say that’s where I learn half of my swears from…. Anyway while watching adult swim something popped up and still go this day I love rewatching it it’s called Jack Stauberns Opal, it’s about a curious girl who investigates the cries she hears coming from a forbidden house across the street. It’s very interesting and has a major plot twist at the end, since I have little I always wondered the meaning of this story, also there’s a lot more other short films made by Jack Staubern,that I still don’t understand so I was wondering if you could make a video about it like the other youtubers that made and also is very interested in it, thank you

I think Stray in the title could mean more than “stray cat”. Stray means lost. Humanity is lost, and the culture they left behind is floundering aimlessly without them. Giving them the whole world instead of just being locked inside their dangerous city is giving them new purpose.

My guess is that the Humans transferred themselves into the companions which is why they are all so human like, onto the network like B-12 was or all died to the plague that was mentioned near the end of the game.

I’m getting a lot of “The Hive” from destiny vibes from the Zurk. I’m sure there are other comparisons to be made.
BreezyGriller
BreezyGriller Πριν μήνα
This theory is actually pretty solid. But I don’t think the zurk could upload themselves into a robot. Even with the wall of flesh I think it can only do certain things like a security system! It watches you and alerts zurks and with the only moving organism it has that being the zurks which die to UV I don’t think it could go any further aside from that one infested district and the sewer system. Because without the zurks how will it spread outside of the sewers and the infested district, including that the infested district has no eyes which means the wall of flesh is only in the sewers and without the zurk’s help it can’t really spread basically the eyes are confined to the sewers, that’s how I see it at least.

Alternatively, maybe the UV weapon simply wasn't powerful enough to harm the big one, but the full might of the sun probably is

Makes sense since I'm pretty sure the Sun's natural UV light isn't the same as a dinky little flashlight made from scraps by Doc and that a prolonged exposure to the sun would prove fatal enough to the Zurks
Aquamarine Rose
Aquamarine Rose Πριν μήνα
Even beyond the "Full might of the sun VS a single UV lamp" the Hivemind seems to be quite Sedentary. Could even be why they're so much more resistant to UV than most as they can simply recover from a UV exposure much more quickly. Like a strong Cell Wall or membrane. The fact that they are so sedentary might not necessarily mean the sun destroys them instantly, but keeps them from naturally spreading any further as they can effectively only have mobility or defense. Though the "Uploading" issue could still circumvent this somewhat.

I legitimately never noticed the robot hooked up to the wall in the sewers, that's a head-scratcher for sure... But otherwise, I disagree with the theory about the Zurks. The UV lamp installed onto B-12 was already weaker compared to Doc's original design, but the game also made a point of not allowing you to keep it on for more than a few seconds. Prolonged UV exposure from the ACTUAL SUN is probably going to be enough to kill off a lot of that infestation. It's totally possible for it to evolve more from the safety of darkness down in the sewers, though, so that's fair. I have doubts about the Zurk hivemind being intelligent enough to infiltrate the network like that, but I can definitely believe that there was more than just one human consciousness preserved in the network given the second pod in AntVillage. Whether the Companions are remnants of humanity in robot bodies, or AI that evolved to mimick human behavior, it still feels like a satisfying and wholesome message about how life moves on and is ever-changing.

They're either already the perfect organism and doesn't need to evolve anymore or there's something a lot more complicated that I can't really think about But honestly, legitimate question, maybe their evolution wasn't physical, but psychological, after all, Stray is way smarter than a regular cat, sure, it's being controlled by the player, but in the game cutscenes we see it trying to communicate with the robots and being genuinely intelligent (example, when B-12 got captured by that robot with the golden chains who's name I already forgot, before It could leave with Clementine and notices B-12 still captured, It meows at Clementine, calling her and pointing at B-12 ) Not to mention how it was able to understand all the things B-12 said and the guides. But hey! Maybe the devs didn't put that much thought into that and was something only to make the player more emotionally attached to Stray, idk
