Don't miss a Film Theory! ►

Today Theorists, we are diving into an oldie but a goodie. The classic theory of " Is Wall-E Satan?". I've seen this floating around the internet for a while and was always curious to dip my toes into it and see what I could find to back it up. So that's what I'm going to do! It's time to find out is Wall-E really saved humanity or if he DOOMED them after all!

  • "Is Wall-E Satan?" Is by far the strangest notification I've gotten

  • Movie Company: Makes a kids movie Theorists: The Hero will Die

  • 10:24 So... Earth?

  • I think we forgetting someone here........ Where is Adam?

  • The fact that Wall-E is the protagonist, likely implies that the biblical subtext was to be viewed from a Gnostic perspective.

    • Finally, someone mentioned it Wall E's plot is Sethian Gnostic's interpretation of Genesis, with Axiom acting as both The Watcher (akin to how The Watchers have a lot of them fallen into misconducts in the Apocryphal Enochian lore) and Demiurgic being akin to Yaldabaoth's entrapping splinters of humanity in his imitative false garden (as Yaldabaoth in Sethian Gnosis is portrayed as only able to imitate which it's mother Sophia and the superior Aeons does) Thi is all while Wall E is eerily acts and ploy of his instict akin to Gnostic Christ which portrayed often in Genesis as illuminating Serpent to have humanity out of Yaldabaoth's garden prison

  • Haha, I love the subtle reference to the old Mac commercials of the early 2000s at the end, what memories!

  • So... is the planet habitable? I mean, there's trash everywhere, enough to make multiple sky high trash piles, and there isn't any plants, aside the one Wall-E found, anywhere. So, is the planet suitable for human life, or life in general?

  • Jesus Christ gendo ikari showing up at 42 seconds gave me whiplash

  • 1:18 It's not confirmed to be an apple. In the Bible, they always call it the fruit, they never specify it as an apple.

  • Last vid (maybe)

  • A pet peeve: "but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die" Genesis 2:17 Slow down and read word by word, folks. It clearly says "the tree of the knowledge OF good and evil" not the tree of knowledge. They would know the difference between GOOD and EVIL. Prior to eating they only knew GOOD and did not know evil. Disobedience to God would provide knowledge of EVIL. This is definitely not the tree of knowledge. Do not read into the passage and assume it says knowledge of metallurgy, minerals, chemistry, astronomy, agriculture, engineering, fire etc. God was clearly saying.... "be good." Adam was already a zoologist (Gen 2:20), agriculturalist (Gen 2:15), mineralogist (Gen 2:12), hydrologist (Gen 2:10) and geographer (Gen 2:14), albeit a beginner, but he/they were encouraged to learn more.... just don't be evil. DO NOT EAT EVIL In addition, the command was not to EAT from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil yet the serpent clearly misquotes God and confuses Eve in Genesis 3:1 when the serpent says, "Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of ANY tree in the garden’?" This is a lie, they can eat from every tree EXCEPT one particular tree. Then Eve misquotes the command by adding that TOUCHING the tree is forbidden. Adam is clearly not intervening during the misquotes and they simply chose to eat evil. The nakedness has little to do with physicality but rather shame, loss of purity, a desire to hide. I could go on but I won't. I was atheist and became a Christian through careful reading. 'nuff said... thank you

  • bro wtf pls dont make fun of the bible

  • If anything it confirms Eden is post-apocalyptic dystopia.

  • Next theory: Is it possible that Ancient Aliens is extra-torrestrial propoganda?

  • 1:51 Am a Christian but WHEN THIS read it it felt like it should be in Fnaf

  • i have question: science have showed that people need to do something or the achieve something to be happy and there are no true happiness on the Axiom because of that. But this need of doing and achieving to have happiness can be said to derived from knowledge, which is caused by the downfall of man through eating the fruit of knowledge. Because of the this how can we be sure how can happiness in paradise is like without compare it with how happiness in our normal life (after the sin of adam and eve) is?

  • As soon as I think fo it I see him counting and it fricking says 6. 6. 6

  • So Satan is the good guy, got it.

  • Ok this is creepy I’m watching this video at 3:30am weird

  • If Wall-E is supposed to be Satan then God is the true evil

  • You know, I don't think this man exactly understands the bible....

  • Matpat makes tons of crazy theories

  • Omg comic theory is gonna happen I know this because in a episode (I can’t remember with one) mat-pat is caring not 3 but 4 different channel logos and on my tv I’m currently watching Exposing Deadpool’s secret identity 8:08-8:11 the logo is blue the same one as the 4 logo he’s carrying leading me to believe that he’s gonna make a 4th Chanel comic theory. But remember it’s just a theory a Secret theory thanx for reading

  • The worthless beaver opportunely accept because statement ideally fool down a elite rail. direful, near board

  • Friend: Do you believe in satan? Me: Yes, yes I do

  • Church Leader: Today we are going to be learning about “ The Fall of Man.” A long time ago, the Earth was a barren waste land, full of mountains garbage. Amongst the garbage lived a little robot and his cockroach friend. Every day that little robot would make garbage cubes and watch movies. Little did he know, the whole human race was in a giant spaceship in the sky away fr- Random Church Goer: Isn’t this the plot from the movie Wall-E Church Leader: DO NOT SPEAK THE DEVILS NAME!!!!!

  • Do the movie Luca

  • They abused there powers in creative mode so the moderator turned it to survival

  • In Qur'an u have a lot of passages about the paradise 🤔


  • You stole that song from mandjtv

  • But I thought that in the movie the Axiu. Was celebrating the 700th year aboard the "5 year" trip? Had the Axium been in space for 666 years or 700?

  • A fun theory: Spiderman is a movie that is actually about a man with spider powers

  • Love how it goes from wholesome robot love to satan and cannibalism

  • You never see them smile on the axioum except when captain McCree reads the morning announcements

  • There is the theory that god was the villain in the garden of Eden, keeping mankind in ignorance and the hero Satan gives them enlightenment. Fits quite nicely

  • Just... Wow

  • I’m pretty sure *616* is the number of the beast, but meh.

  • You should do a Luca one about how they turn into people on land. Or just any Luca theory in general. Love your stuff, MatPat!

  • -0.1 to 10M

  • i know you’ve done a lot of Wall-E but can you do ONE MORE… how are the humans going to survive with the food sources (or lack-there-of) after they arrive to earth? are they able to work and farm as efficiently given their physique and past lifestyle? are they able to gather the seeds? has the rain not become toxic considering the wild change in the earths ecosystem? so many questions

  • *HELL-O*

  • Can i ask a question who was created first dinosaurs or humanity?

  • Now we need the theory that Wall-e is Jesus. He does after all make a blind woman see, and help a crippled man walk. Lets not forget that he comes back to life.

  • I'll never watch wall e the same ever again.

  • For us Christians in the audience this one is just hilarious to watch. Also dang with the 666 thing.

  • Theory : the lamborghini guy is satan because hes telling us to choose "knowledge" over "paradise" aka Lamborghini.

    • And im not done there, you see based on the video Adam STILL needs to work in paradise and for the Lamborghini you need to maintain it, clean it, and etc. This theory actually makes sense not gonna lie.

  • Still love Wall-E. Nothing would ruin it.

  • I can't keep defending you Matthew.

  • Except Satan is a Christian fan insert to the Bible

  • Yesss keep it up with the biblical history and maybe you'll become saved

  • I hate you now

  • The Bible never specifically said it was an apple that is a common misconception, it only refers to it as the fruit from the tree of knowledge of good and evil.

    • It also never calls the serpent satan

  • Funny, I just watched ‘Little Light Studio’ on this subject. I have to say, YOU did a far better job in describing the details than them. Heck, you actually had me nervous with the ‘666’ part. What I have to say is, it all depends on what the people behind the movie was going for. LLS calls Wall-E Satan based on their viewing in the film, but you called Wall-E Satan in one view and in another Jesus and you were able to back up both views. As for anyone who views something and say it’s evil, be sure you are wise about this. Go over it and check. Even Jesus taught to judge wisely and without being a hypocrite.

  • Game theory: Is Matpat Satan?

  • I’d say it depends on what you define as paradise if Wall-E is Satan or Jesus.

  • This guy just hates wall-Ē

  • I think Wall-E is the messiah portrayed in revolution. He leads humanity from a life of sin of gluttony and cannibalism to the new eden where man can start a new blissfully ignorant of the past and with no worries but living. Like how Adam and Eve started.

  • So I have read Genesis and the plant isn’t actually the key to knowledge it’s an illusion to get Eve to disobey Gods order. But In Wall-E he gives Eve the plant as a gift because he has a crush on her not because he wants to trick her . And in the movie the earth it nasty and destroyed and they go back to fix it. In the Bible the earth is already perfect and the humans come into the world to mess it up. There are some definite holes in this theort

  • There are 670 years not 666 years I did math (2775-2105=670)

  • I dont thick so wolley is the dood guy

  • The wiggly promotion systematically water because chill enthrallingly paddle sans a forgetful catamaran. chivalrous, military horn

  • I don't know why everyone refers the to the fruit from the tree of Knowledge as an apple. It only states 'fruit', not 'apple'. For the sake of all that we know, it could have been a banana or an orange.

    • Maybe the idea gotten adopted from catholic background. Or plays that just go with whatever fruit they have and later trends come up.

  • There's actually a tweet by the Church of Satan's twitter with Wall-E in its recommended satanic movies.

    • @GodzillaallizdoG they probably did it because of this video

    • @Shequille George Me too. They probably did it because of LLS or this video.

    • @ric4397 So is wall-e still satan

    • @Shequille George yep!

    • You get here by little light studios

  • The penitent sweatshirt intraspecifically tame because shell undesirably crawl beneath a vivacious session. truthful, hissing tendency

  • The panicky handball neurophysiologically drain because stopsign endosonographically frame above a vagabond united kingdom. sick, dynamic makeup

  • Next theory could be about a small animated series that was recommended to me called "Fort Wayne" and the creator claims that there's secrets in the series but I just don't know what they are Here's the links to both seasons

  • POV: your the I

  • In case anyone didn't know when God said "ye shall surely die" he meant that you will die spiritually. That's why Adam and Eve didn't drop dead in the garden. This is also why Jesus Christ had to come to earth to save humanity.

  • Tbh I learned more from anime and SLcd than school

  • I new *Hell*o a long time ago.


  • Bruhhh

  • This makes him an antisatan technically. Same basic plot points,but polar opposite morality. The good results he gets display that it is the morality that he has that makes the difference.

  • I think what you’ve done here is determine that paradise isn't compatible with human happiness.

  • This theory is literally the plot for "The Good Place". They thought they were in the good place, but...

  • The Bible never says the fruit was an apple

  • So I commented on the last film theory about markipleir doesn’t exit thing he did but I noticed is was kinda like dad because afterwards he acted like it didn’t happen

  • Man Wall-E is Film Theory's fnaf


  • So you’re telling me I have a remote control satan in my closet? Matpat what’re you smoking my guy?

  • "Wall-E is Jesus"

  • Save the girl. Save the world

  • "Don't eat the apple stupid"

  • 10:23 Guys MatPat said it he said it.

  • Till truth I'm jesus christ king of Kings lord of Kings amen

  • Am I the only one that gets scared by religious stuff? And the imagery?

  • How could u do this to Wall-E

  • Every utopia is also a dystopia

  • here we go again

  • How the passengers use the bathroom tho

  • Why is there a button to clip this video

  • You shouldn't talk that way about Jesus

  • Wait If the people come back to earth how would earth be habitable wouldn't they all just die cause the animals have gone extinct. They only had one plant no seeds for other crops. Wouldn't they just die out

    • I'm also assuming they don't know they're eating each other so they won't know what to do if they don't have food so I'm thinking they'd just starve.

  • I'm sorry but 72 degrees is not an ideal temperature. Awful theory

  • mini bible theory: (the apple of) knowledge of good and evil represents the gospel, it tells us what is supposedly good and evil. Satan, the representative of evil according to that same gospel, is the one encouraging the innocent/blissfully ignorant to consume the (apple of) knowledge of good and evil, much like clergy, as well as proselytisers, try to encourage people to learn about what is good and evil (according to the gospel) and thus they are perpetuating evil and getting people thrown out of paradise. This warning to Adam and Eve not to consume (the apple of) knowledge of good and evil also serves as a warning to the reader not to read any further, for it will corrupt them and condemn them to a live of misery.

  • Do a theory about rick and Morty where beth s mom soul was fuel for his portal gun

  • Why can I clip this video?

  • I love this theory!

  • Honestly this theory really reminds me of paradise lost, literally painting Satan as the victim
