The series is filled with lots of over the top deaths, challenges and a major twist ending that has a lot going on with it. Because of the major reveals there’s several fan theories floating around about the show including how Gi-Hun almost became a guard, his relationship with Il-Nam, The VIPs and a lot more.

Throughout this we’re gonna be breaking down the best of them but I’m putting a red light on the video right now if you don’t want spoilers. If you enjoy the video then please hit the thumbs up button and make sure you subscribe for videos like this every day.

With that out the way, let’s get into our Squid Game Theories.

Ok so throughout the series we learn more about the set up of the Squid Game including the guards and also those in control. Though the security that works in the compound seems like they’re all part of the vast organisation too it could be that they were selected much in the same way that all of the players were.

In episode one we come across a mysterious character played by Gong Yoo who offers Gi-Hun two choices. He can either pick a red or blue card and Gi-Hun goes with the latter which could end up cementing which type of player that he is in the game.

Lucy.what1 on TikTok came up with the theory the other day that had Gi-Hun chosen the red card that he could’ve ended up becoming a guard instead of the player that he was. If we’re going deeper into this then it’s definitely a possibility and the guards themselves seem almost as trapped as the players at points. They themselves sleep in cells, are killed for even revealing their faces and though they seem like they’re in control, we see from the way that they’re treated that they actually have very little power.

Similar to the players they are given numbers and this could highlight the similarities.

They also have very little knowledge of what’s going on either and don’t know who each other are. Everyone is kept in the dark so that they can leave the facility without really knowing what’s going on and therefore it seems more like this might be a one time thing for them just like the players. It’s definitely an interesting one and the more we learn about the game, the more it seems like the guards are almost just as powerless as the players, hinting towards this perhaps being the case.

Now in our last video we talked about all of the clues and hints that Gi-Hun was actually the one who was in control of the game. This included things like the file starting at two instead of 1, him instructing the Front Man to end riot and also the marbles area being modelled on his childhood home.

  1. Mike's Amateur Arcade Monitor Repair says:

    Why are the security personnel being referring to as "gods?" They're just regular people as far as I know.

  2. This Horror Show Shows Who We Are
    A student of mine told me about a new show called “Squid Game.” It is a South Korean “thriller series,” as they call it, which has become a pop culture phenomenon and is the no. 1 show in more than 90 countries. The show presents several hundred people who are all in great financial debt and in dire emotional states. The producers pit them against each other, even if they are very close, and make them hate each other. The winner takes millions of dollars, and the others are killed. This show wouldn’t be so horrifying if it didn’t portray our true nature. The very fact that we watch such a show enthusiastically is proof that underneath the “civilized” façade, our nature is as the show depicts.
    It works like a magnet. We love to watch the struggle between good and evil, as long as we are safe from the consequences of the battle. The thing is that in this show, there is no good; there is only evil.
    Indeed, humans are the worst being in reality. What makes us so uniquely evil is the fact that we explicitly want to harm others. We do not want to eat others because we will starve unless we do so; we want to see them suffer! We derive pleasure from others’ pain, and derive the most pleasure when we are the ones inflicting it.
    We often say that reality is like a jungle, where the strong eat the weak. However, in the jungle, the strong do not want to destroy the weak; they want to eat. Once they are full, they want to sleep and play, and not kill or hurt for fun. In the human jungle, we do not want to eat other people; we want to see them hurting! This is why the natural jungle thrives without any laws while the human jungle, which we mistakenly refer to as “civilization,” is disintegrating despite the laws that strive to limit our barbarity.
    If we had any hopes of finding goodness in human nature, “Squid Game,” and mainly its popularity, proves that we have nothing to hope for when it comes to human nature. If we can create such shows, and if they can be so popular, then we can do such horrors in real life.
    The only possible good that can come out of such a show is the realization that it is not fantasy, but an authentic depiction of who we are. Maybe if we realize this, we will be willing to do something about changing ourselves.
    The current trend is to dull our awareness of the human horror show we live in by making cannabis available and legal. Indeed, the more we learn about human nature, the more we realize that perhaps it is better to numb ourselves through life until it’s over.
    For now, we’re cheering at the sight of other people suffering, much like people used to cheer at the sight of poor men fighting against lions in ancient Rome. Only if we realize that it is not okay to be like that, our minds might open to other options. If such a diabolical program can be the no. 1 show in more than 90 countries, it means that the entire world is immersed in unhinged viciousness.
    There is a solution, but it is demanding and must encompass the entire world if it is to succeed. To change who we are, we must initiate a worldwide educational process where such programs are forbidden and pro-human-connection programs are produced and aired. Even if they are not popular, at first, we cannot allow ourselves to be exposed to the violent poison and culture of narcissism that we consume today. They may be sweet, but they are lethal.
    If people don’t want to watch shows about human connection, they can put aside their media devices and simply talk to one another. This will already be a major improvement to the current situation.
    It may not sound like fun, but what is the option? To live out the “Squid Game.” Besides, after some practice, we will discover that connection and care are far more rewarding and pleasant than destruction and cruelty, and do not carry the negative side effect that is our current culture…

  3. Only thing that doesn’t make sense for me is that the VIPs are supposed to be like mirror images of us as the audience. I def see how some could come to that conclusion… except that we know that these VIPs are bored bc of their vast wealth and have little to no care for the fragility of life bc nothing excites them anymore. That doesn’t apply to a lot of people… or even most people lol it’s a core characteristic of these vips and a factor they state over and over so we won’t forget that… so mysterious but who knows!

  4. My favorite theory is the one about the color of the game on the subway determining being a guard or a player. It's very interesting because also from the footages they display when they expose Sangwoo's and everyone else's reasons for debt at the beginning almost every video shows the player choosing blue. There's a super blurry one at the end where the shown player chose red (yes, I went and rewatched that scene), though, and while this theory could still be doable because it's a small detail, it shows that it wasn't pre-meditated. But it was still a nice coincidence and a cool theory.

  5. Another great theory: Il-Nam is Mr Beast

  6. Wait would the guards be offered a large sum of money then because they would have to be bribed into doing it somehow if they picked the red square

  7. LOL, no we are not like the VIP's since we are watching a TV series not a real thing, and this kind of makes a difference.

  8. I’m so invested in frontman character, wish we knew more about him

  9. "There is a possibility that Il-Nam is Gi-hun's father." No, There isn't. There is no reason to think they are related. Gi-hun would have recognized him.

  10. Makes me kind of think of saw, the ending. Some in the Saw movies that survived the games ended up assisting with continuing the game. The players were those that made poor life decisions. Though money didn't drive those in Saw, survival played a major part in squid game once they realized death was the alternative.

  11. I reckon the guards are past winners of the squid games but actually learn no lessons, squander their winnings and have made the decision to return for more money

  12. 7L ki hai toh yeh ek ☝️ mein aa rahe ho kya 😲 mein aa rahe ho kya 87

  13. I think player 101 survived and will appear on season 2 because when they fell together with player 212, he was ontop of her and possibly didnt fall directly to the ground

  14. Big problem with your first theory is that there’s no way to insure that the numbers will be odd for marbles. In fact it would have been even had the doctor not been caught.

  15. I have a theory! If Kang Sae-Byeok didn't die and wasn't injured, she would still want to win the price money. But, she would team up with Gi Hyun, because after seeing Sang-woo kill someone in the glass stepping stones- she saw right through him. So, with that being said. That could've been the only way more than one player could win in the final game. Since that there is a defending and offensive- nothing stated in the rules that there can't be more than one player in your team, neither did the rules say that only one player can win the price money. HMMMMM.

  16. Not really a theory but what if the recruiters are actually former winners who have blown through their fortunes? Also maybe the way they recruit the guards is they are North Korean illegal immigrants who are promised vast sums of money and all the ability to bring their families to the South this might explain why one guard winded up being shocked with such a young man. I mean this for the lower-ranking guards, so they circles not the triangles.

  17. The card theory dosen't make sense, cause at least one of them would've try yo betray the front man

  18. A theory. The old man is the owner and controller of the entire squid game. He just thought it would be better to be a player and to watch. Think about this, we never actually saw him die. That means maybe they didn’t kill him. He just wanted to see how far he could get in the game but he actually die. He also wanted to play because he a brain tumor, so he doesn’t know how long he has left and wanted to try the game out for once.

  19. One thing at the very end that I found interesting: Il-Nam's final bet said "if ~anyone~ helps" the drunk by midnight. Therefor Gi-Hun could have left and helped him himself, but instead waited and watched. I thought that was going to be a big part of the end but it wasn't brought up.

  20. The dachi card theory is wrong bc when they show the people that are in debt you see a man throwing a red card and you see him as a player

  21. "The audience are like the VIPs" is an absolutely terrible take. There is a very big difference between enjoying watching media in which fictitious characters are killed and watching actual real human beings being killed.

  22. In 40 years the new squid games will be all on PC you'll be strapped into a chair like the king with the sword hanging above his head. But atleest its a sick gaming rig. But the VR rounds later on really are spectacular.

  23. I think the guard theory is correct and maybe that’s how they choose the hierarchy of guards too- via the scores of the players get in the first game. Because Hwang Jun Ho’s brother, Hwang In-ho aka the frontman went missing for the first game (presumably he would have realised if this had happened before if he had played in previous games). So maybe the guards are recruited before hand and trained or maybe they are initially recruited and then reused and pass up the hierarchy each game to ensure their commitment to the game and that’s why Hwang In-ho was living in one room despite his status- because he’s not there very long. (I’ve only watched it once but wasn’t there papers and things in Hwang In-ho’s room too- maybe he is one of the architects of the game?) But the recruitment hierarchy theory would make sense as to why the frontman believed in the ‘equality’ rule/ sham meritocracy of the game- as he benefited from it for his hierarchical position- he was given power through it. But then the fact the the square manager who wasn’t caught smuggling organs of the players makes me think that the guards are reused and move up the hierarchy of their own game- as there was clearly planning involved in that operation (knowing how to delete the cctv for example) and the guards talk about how hard it is to recruit the circle guards/ workers to go against the games rules (they are surely more invested in them because they understand their survival and hierarchical progression depends on it). Plus the guards that are soldiers are clearly well trained which would be hard to facilitate in the short recruitment period especially as the games are annual. So I think it’s a combination: that the guards are recruited initially through the first game with the players, and that they progress through the hierarchy of the games via their good work/ sticking to the rules of the game/ not getting caught if the rules are broken.

  24. Great story. They do not need a Season 2. Just like we did not need any sequels to The Matrix, we do not need a Season 2 of this.

  25. It’s pretty idiotic to compare people watching a tv series to people paying to watch people actually kill each other.

  26. If Oh Il-Nam was the creator of the games he might pull another trick and come back to season 2 🤔

  27. If you think about it, it’s like a fucked up Willy Woknka and the Chocolate factory game

  28. did he inherit the old mans money? or is it just his winnings

  29. No. I disagree, we are not like the VIPs, the key thing is that I know that im watching an act, no one is getting actually killed. If I was offered to watch a real squid game with real deaths, I wouldn't enjoy watching that.

  30. Has the old man always been so completely without heart that he never sent his son and the mother of his child any money, even though they were living in abject poverty?

  31. Some of my favorite scenes from the show were when the thug Deok-su found himself struggling in games where his physical strength was useless, like the cookie cutting game. The absolute terror in his face was hilarious to watch.

  32. Why do we assume GI Hun inherited Il Nam’s money? I assumed it was his prize money. The pin was his player number. Plus the bank scene was a year before GI Hun met back up with Il Nam. Maybe I’m missing something.

  33. You keep pronouncing "guards" like "gods" it sounds like LOL

  34. Squid Game kind of seems like it low-key got inspired by the Saw movies. The Saw movies had a dying man with Cancer set up an elaborate game in which people are kidnapped and wake up in a game. And elimination game. Many of them had problems in their life and took their life for granted. Of course the Saw games were more brutal both were deadly. Both games could have been won with cooperation instead of most everyone trying to eliminate the other players

  35. Il nam could be Gi hun dad. It’s a giant possibility

  36. The red hair that gi hun had at the end may show that he will be a guard in the next season in squid game. I think that gi hun will be a guard and will try and stop and find out more about the games and front man

  37. A comment left on a different video (couldn't find the right to give credit) had a really interesting take on the scene where Gi-Hun learns who Il-Nam was, and that he's still alive. Il-Nam wants to play one last game, betting on a homeless person's life not being saved. Gi-Hun agrees, and stays by the window, watching. Not only is this reminiscent of the VIPs position, watching and betting on people's lives from above, behind glass. But Gi-Hun could have intervened himself, and would have before the games. He could have left the room, run outside and saved that man himself. He could even have stayed with Il-Nam and called an ambulance. But he doesn't.
    He is behaving more and more like Il-Nam and the VIPs, treating someone's life as something to gamble on, in extentsion as entertainment. This could have been Il-Nam's last test to see how much Gi-Hun has changed, perhaps if he has become corrupted enough to take over his role.

    I don't know how much of this might be true, but I nevertheless really enjoy the symbolism in this scene, showing just how Gi-Hun has changed.

  38. I think the old guy is not died in the next one too ! lets see

  39. I'm sure if he was his father he'd have recognized him like that's such a weird theory… also he didn't inherit Il-nam's money it was his winnings

  40. Am i the only person who thinks the v.i.p’s are old players that one the before squid games

  41. I think IL-Nam Is Gi Hun's father because when they both were playing The Marble Game IL-Nam Said That My House Looked Like Just This One And Gi-Hun's House also Looked Similar to that
