I've been wanting to cover more classic cartoons lately and Invader Zim was the perfect choice. The lore and science of that show fascinates me. There is so much we can dive into that it was hard to limit myself to one thing, but for you, Theorists, I will do my best. Today we are going to uncover the SECRET ALIEN hiding in plain sight. No, I don't mean Zim. I am talking about DIB!

  • I think if the show wasn't canceled, this would actually be the big twist during a season finale of some sort

  • Invader zip confirmed among us

  • 🤩🤩🤩🤩

  • I always wondered why Gir eats tbh.

  • But also in the alternate universes he had a nose

  • Maybe he lost his arms when he was banished

  • Talk about Irony

  • 12:06 let’s focus more on the fact that he moved like Mach 3 to reach that guy, knocking so many people out of the way whilst doing so.

  • **keeps the meme**

  • You’ll think this is funny matpat I am Zim

  • Theory idea: matpat is dib aka an alien ( *THIS IS A JOKE* )

  • I found so many holes in this theory

  • I love your videos matpat

  • HAVE U FORGOTTEN that DIBS FATHER has robot ARMS? SO he might be a ROBOT with an urkin alien IN IT. YOU would now IF YOU FINISHED the MOVIE.( I was trying to talk like zim

  • The genios with the voice of a racist

  • I think membrane fell in love with an earth woman but because of the fact that irkans don't have reproductive organs and she probably dies he decided take her DNA and make a clone of the woman he fell in love with the irkin race doesn't have female aliens only male ones so it makes sense for him to clone a woman he really liked

  • Tallest faking their height is actually canon

  • is *DIB* Part alien?

  • But in the the clip where membrane is a child why is he hiding his face

  • 0:08 anime girl ages be like

  • Hey hey hey hey mat hey mat hey um when you gunna do a jojo bizarre adventure video on why killer queen is a cat

  • Or he just found their work and doesn’t want others to also find it

  • You have gone to Mad to Insane


  • Scientific fail made him lose his nose and ears

  • film theory : does monkey now*-me : screams in pillow*- film theory : get honey- me : gets honey* film theory : :)

  • I’m 99% sure that joke about the operating system is a reference to Independence Day

  • There is an alien among us

  • 0:09 20% of animes be like:

  • I wanna see what would happen if Dipper from Gravity Falls met Dib

  • Does Gaz have ears?

  • ‘He *decided* to be un-banished’ wow wish it could work that way like you’d just walk out of jail and the police would be chasing you and they’d catch you but you’d just say ‘Ya know what,I don’t really wanna be in jail’

    • *Napoleon intensifies*

  • *matpat doing a fnaf theory * NOT SCIENTIFICALLY POSSLBLE!!

  • membrane: nobody is as excited as i am some random guy: I AM membrane:........NOT SCIENTiFICALLY POSSIBLE

  • Theorie madpat is dib membrane

  • why is everybody a freaking alien

  • Roses are red violets are blue invaders zim is one of the best movies and frozen two

  • He’s not smart if he saw all the alien stuff he’s dumb because he doesn’t think that aliens are real he’s basically dumb he’s not smart he’s basically dumber Than a freaking alien

  • Not scientifically possible

  • Not to mention that dib, gaz, and their dad all survived being exposed to the vacuum of space along with other aliens during the prison scene in enter the florpus

  • Hey matpat you know how Mario is a sociopath, well you remember how in Mario 3d land had 2 endings: the Mario ending and the luigi ending. That might help with the peach and Luigi being married you also see that peach "talks" to Luigi more

  • I think what is more likely is that Professor Membrane is the son of an exiled Urkan (Idk how to spell it) who bred with some woman and raised Membrane to take on the responsibilities of an invader. The exile most likely was a tall Urkan which means he would know the importance of operating in secret with much more expertise than a typical invader would. Membrane probably discounts the existence of aliens based on his agenda of enslaving Earth to eventually defend the planet and it’s neighboring star systems once he eventually builds a fleet. If the Urkan leadership learned that Membrane essentially owned Earth they would immediately invade it and execute him due to being not only a technological threat but an existential threat.

  • I fucking love this series and the theory of him being possibly an alien (likely even Irken) isn’t forgettable for me

  • How could he be a big invader if he was a child in the flash backs.

  • Membrane probably spliced his DNA with a humans

  • Dib is a clone of professor membrane was supposed to be a story arc in season 3

  • 0:06 this is LITERALLY how some 12 year olds look in anime. And i see how this is the joke so please don't wooooosh me

  • No

  • Dib: finds out the truth Also dib: I have crippling depression

  • Now do a theory that Professor Membrane is The Emperor of Mankind

  • I was wondering who zim sounded like and then it hit me. It was Billy. Billy from grim adventures of billy and mandy.

  • Heard of risk of rain?

  • ok that world is among us

  • Called it

  • 14:38 frumpkin plush!! Someone working on this video knows of critical role

  • Invader zim was among us before it’s time

  • 14:47 Who are they? besides Kirby and snorlax

  • I can get behind this theory... I can just imagine Zim taunting Dib about it too lol like ha! you're just like me!

  • I can guarantee that Oliver would more than likely be perfectly okay with Squishmallows instead of college

  • =*)vfgvvff


  • I have a theory about Miss bitters being tallest spork. Tallest spork was known for his small eyes amongst the empire, and Miss bitters wears glasses. Possibly to cover up the fact that she's a alien? Its confirmed in one of the comics that miss bitters is not a human, maybe she's a irken?

  • 2:03 nope, it cancelled at 19th August 2006

  • I hate Invader Zim’s fandom, but the Show is great

  • Bubble boy Released: 08-24-2001 Touchstone pictures Love this goofy movie please make a FILM THEORY. Maybe about the cults prophecy

  • On the nose and the ear part well probably the people who drew the show or animated I don't know probably didn't want the dad or whatever to have a nose and ears maybe because they didn't draw him with a nose probably they didn't do that because well his mask thing is way too close up to his face and in the end of the goggles are probably where his ears are! ( I don't know why I made some of this just some gibberish okay goodbye kcbicniceincdbudcbhfiifw hibcwhivcwhibwbhiwfcihwbcebfhickbfhbdwdbhkfwchkfwbkfwbhkcfwbhiwfbdwhwhiwcbihwfcbhkfwbhkdcwbhcdwbhckdwcvgjcdwcvgjcdwbhcwf.

  • He’s really Johnny the homicidal maniac before he grew up to be Johnny and Zim is just his first illusion

  • Is all Humans or aliens?

  • Dib is ac a alien bc he knew zim is a alien only humans don’t know

  • he is an alien look at his head it's enormous

  • Something I also noticed is that during the realities colliding scene in the movie Dib was turned into an Irken at one point. So that could have been eluding to the idea!

  • I mean the galactic star gate could be you know normal space science

  • This is never going to get out of my head now

  • Membrane is the deposed leader of the aliens. Ended up on earth

  • lol Moxxie is same voice as Zim

  • Omg so CUTE!!! Give me thum

  • The wrong aftermath pharmacologically gaze because bracket immunohistologically amuse towards a simple bear. parallel, juicy bull

  • Honestly, I do think membrane and Dib are aliens, but not Gaz. She’s an android! Think about it: She Dosent obey anyone but membrane. When she got wet when Dib splashed water on her and Zim, she looked like it hurt her. Robots are affected by water. Why do you think he wanted Dib to go with her to the mall? He didn’t want her to get broken. She protects herself, all the time. There was one episode where she was on the elevator, and was trying to get the GS2 from Iggins, and SMASHED AND GLITCHED THE ELEVATOR FROM ONE PUNCH. BUT HEY, THATS JUST A THEORY A FILM THEORY

  • dumb

  • How about, if Dr. Membrane is sended to Earth by The Tallests, why is child Dr. Membrane lives at earth while he was short?

  • Zim: YOU LIED!!

  • Plot Twist The tallest aren't the tallest

  • Protopat?

  • I thought he was a clone of his father

  • 7:02 i find this funny

  • Madpat is dib

  • ok but if he's an alien and part of zims race then he's one... very tall and two hiding from them. Earth was destined to be thrown into some other races dying sun. Not for Irken conquest.

  • Did anyone notice the new theory or channel in dispatch or whatever you see that it’s a new thing and I know might want to uncover it I don’t know what it might be

  • Pretty sure the OS joke is just making fun of Independence Day

  • Can we Acknowledge that dibs dad has literal ROBOT ARMS MATPAT

  • Even Dib has a nose

  • How is din an alien

  • Dib has ears matpat


  • i am steve rogers

  • So the only thing canon is that the son is a human clone of the father. What about the daughter? Maybe membrane isn't tall, he is probably zim size with a mech body enhancement. In an alternate universe zim succeeded his first mission. It reminds me of how megas xlr ended

  • Gaz also had no ears

  • According to the special features of season one, it was apparently planned for Dib to turn out to be a creation of Doctor Membrane.

  • I've been waiting for this exact theory. Im so glad someone said it. I hope they keep making IZ comics
