Who is the mysterious mat? Legend says long ago that a picture of him in a Repl.it shirt was posted, but it has yet to be found.
mat has said mat was the beginning of his gamer name, and might not actually be his name, or a shorthand of his name. There are many mat identity theories:
- Genghis Khan
- Kublai Khan
- Timchen, or someone who personally knows Timchen: mat and his endless and bizarre supply of Timchen photos (timchen.tk), some have suspected he is actually the god himself. (Timchen has denied any claims of being mat.)
- John Smith
- An Advanced Neural Network, would explain supply of timchen photos also.
- An intelligent potato in the witness protection program.
- Slip (This identity may be referred to as slip-mat)
- Minecraft (that is, he is literally the Minecraft application)
- A bot
- A boomer
- Enigma. Malte (Enigma's name) is an anagram of El Mat
- An Alien
- Russian Bot
mat location theories (it is known he lives in the US and in he CST timezone, and speks engrish):
- Germantown, Wisconsin
- Minneapolis, Minnesota
- Belize or Russian Antartica (probably not because not in the US, but both in the CST timezone. however if he is a russian bot he probably lives in russian antartica)
- Outer space with a cst sleep schedule
mat has revealed that he has a mother, and a little brother who is 10 years old.
