Hello, today I come to present a new theory of the Phantom
And yes, I know that I did one in the past but debating whether or not the Phantom was a hallucination, I came up with another theory that perhaps for others may make sense
To put us in context
The flying fox is the largest bat in the world and lives in the Philippines, but unlike the Phantom and real bats, it does not suck blood.
My theory is that the Phantom is an evolved species of the bat since it only appears at night
Like the bat in Minecraft caves that is almost always in dark places or spawns in dark places (besides being the most useless mob)
Since the Phantom like the spider is a nocturnal predator
And you will ask me, then why does it appear only when the player does not sleep at night?
Well, this can be for 2 reasons
One, make it a simple coincidence
And the second is ...
When the human sleeps little, his senses diminish becoming more clumsy since it diminishes the concentration, attention, etc.
The same would apply to Minecraft humanoids
The Phantom would take advantage of the disadvantage of not sleeping much to hunt down its main prey, the humanoid
And the reason why it burns in sunlight may be ...
That their skin is not adapted to sunlight and damages or burns them
And no, bats are not birds but they are vertebrates that can fly.
What does this mean? That the Phantom is not a bird but a giant bat
Cave bat family
That was my theory, I hope you liked it and it is up to your opinion which theory you like best, if the Phantom is a hallucination or that it is a giant bat
Oh and that the Phantom came from the Nether and things like that I already refute them in the previous Phantom theory (the one that it's a hallucination) so I'm not going to spend time refuting it again
