Predictions Made About: Mat

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 7.5)

My prediction is Mat will be the catalyst that helps destroy the currect seanchan culture the way it is now with the slavery and the damane. Egwene and Ms. Shipless will also play a key role in this, but its Mat who will drive the nail home.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 3.67)

While Rand and his select band of channelers (Nynaeve, Narishma, etc.) attempt to seal the bore, Bashere and Itruralde will be the ones to lead the "dragon legion". Mat will follow after Rand. As Rand has his inevitable confrontation with Moridin, Shaidar Haran will attack Rand, trying to distract him or kill him. Mat will then have an epic duel with Shaidar Haran but will be outmatched in the end because of his missing eye (which is covered by a bad ass eye patch like Ingtar's). But just as Shaidar Haran is about to strike Mat down, Rand is triumphant and seals the bore. Yay!

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 4.2)

I predict that Mat will inherit all of Noal(Jain Farstrider) memories via Aelfinn/Eelfinn. They didn't kill him immediately, and got all of his memories and sensations before finishing the deed.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 2.6)

Mat will be at the White Tower with Moiraine and Thom collecting the horn when the Seanchan attack. Joline will be captured wearing the a'dam and Mat will have her released. Because of his High Blood he will be able to call of the Seanchan and make them ally to him.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 5.2)

Mat will be at the White Tower when the Seanchan come to attack again. He will have the Horn and his Spear...and his amulet with the one eyed fox(eye is Aes Sedai symbol) and that will make the Seanchan army take him to Tuon.As the Prince of Ravens he will best her( Tuon's POV in TOM states that it is common for the Prince of Ravens to plot against the Empress/wife... and how it is so nice not to have to endure that with Matrim) and his luck will force her to ally with Rand. His amulet, spear, medallion , possession of the Horn and one eyed condition will help correct the wrong that enabled the Seanchan Royals to have to vacate the TOM in Seandar.

2010-11-24

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 6.86)

Mat's choice of a coat when first going to meet with Elayne will save Caemlyn. Mat, wearing a worn coat, is accompanied by Thom and Talmanes and other unnamed soldiers on the first ride into Caemlyn proper. Talmanes is actually Mat due to Talmanes' polished appearance. Given the Epiclogue, Talmanes will lead the remaining members of the Band to Caemlyn and the mercs in the area will rally to his leadership because some think he is actually Mat. These combined forces will join with the remaining Kin, Guards and armsmen and will hold the Inner City until help arrives.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 4.4)

Mat will either determine which eye the Aelfinn/Eelfinn see his experiences through and remove it OR he will go to the Tower of Ghenjei blindfolded to hide his coming. Also he will use Aludra's firesticks/strikers to blind them.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 7.2)

I predict that Mat will give up an eye, (He see's the world through both, so he will give up one, or half), to gain knowledge of how to win the Final Battle, and save the world from the DO.

2010-10-07

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 7)

I Predict Mat will gain the knowledge he requires to win the last battle, but the payment the Aelfinn & Eelfinn demand is the sacrifice of one of Mat's eyes.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 2.4)

Although I do think the power will be destroyed or given up, I believe the "light of the world" refers to Mat giving up the worlds innocence and purity to create gunpowder and start a scientific and industrial revolution similar to our own.

2010-08-23

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 1.8)

The DO can see through Mat's eye, so he betrays Rand just by seeing things. Moiraine will tell Mat about this, and Mat will trade that eye, (sound like giving up half the light of the world to you?) for Moiraine, the finn won't even realize that they are getting a bad deal!

I predict that Mat will do/suggest something that will make it so that the female half of the One Power is tainted. We all now how much he hates it and and much he doesn't like Aes Sedai. I can't see him getting rid of the OP altogether cause then what would the next Dragon Reborn use to seal the prison? That's my two cents.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 6)

Mat will lose an eye, either in the Last Battle or in the Tower of Ghenji. I believe this as Egwene Dreams him putting his eye on the scale, and the prediction that he will "give up half the light of the world" in order to save it. I take this to mean that he will lose his eye in order to save the world. I also believe that Mat bears some stark similarities to the Norse god Odin:
-Odin was known as the "Father of Battles" whilst Mat as the "son of battles.
-Both are known gamblers
-Both wear wide brimmed hats and carry spears
-Mat's spear has two ravens on it, Odin had two ravens Huggin and Munnin who each day told him the news of the Earth
-Huggin and Munnin means "thought and memory" in norse wythology, Mat's raven-marked spear is inscribed with "Thought is the arrow of time, memory never fades.
-Both Odin and Mat were hanged upon "Tree's of Life", Odin upon Yggdrasil and Mat Avendesora in order to achieve knowledge
-Odin only had one eye as he sacrificed his eye to gain knowledge of the all time and see how to win ragnarok (nose final battle and end of the world) and I believe that Mat will do something similar.
I believe that the similarities between Mat and Odin exist, although I could be wrong. But this prediction seems to hold true to the prophesies and my percieved ideas of the similarities between Mat and Odin.
Please post any opinions.

I predict Mat remembers his own past lives and has always been a hero of the horn. At some time Mat will get spun out of the pattern as George Patton. Who's band can also move farther, faster, and do more damage than any other commander. Gotta see the movie again to get the exact quote.

2007-09-07

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 1)

I predict that Mat giving up half the light of the world to save it involves him somehow giving one of his eyes to Rand after Rand loses his sight. Rand needs to see to channel and if he cannot channel the scales are tipped in the Shadow's favor.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 4.86)

I believe that Mat will lose his eye while talking with the Aelfinn, something about "I'd give my right eye to win this one". It'd fit his style. That could also be what is meant by "giving up half the light of the world to save the world". That he would lose half of his vision, thus half the light of the world.

I think will come with Olver, Noal and Thom to The Tower of Ghenjei. I think they will also need the help of Darlin because Biggite told Olver about a bronze sword (or was it dagger...) and that's what's on the crown of Tear which is needed to open the Tower of Ghenjei. I think Mat will help to presuade Tuon to sign an alliance with Rand.

It will be revealed that Mat has unwittingly "stolen" the "Dark One's own luck" in Shadar Logoth due to the attraction between both Evils. Due to that Mat's presence will be instrumental in Tarmon Gaidon as not allowing Dark One to use his "own luck" in full range.

Mat will make it to TG and judging from his obsession with fireworks will either remake guns or use fireworks as weapons.

Mat will be presented to the Empress after marrying Tuon. He will will not be affected by the Crystal Throne ter'angral that makes people feel in awe of the ruler because of his foxhead medallion.

Mat will lose his eye in a bargain for Moiraine in *Finnland. He gives up his eye to save Moiraine, without whom Rand will fail. Also, he later gets an eye ter'angreal. The One Power itself cannot be present as his eye, so a product of the OP will do (a.k.a., a ter'angreal). How he will acquire this, I don't know, but he will.

Mat's group will be attacked by shadowspawns and he will shout the battlecry "for the honor of the rose of the sun" in the old tongue.

Prediction:      (Average Rating: 6.33)

Just My two cents but...
Tuon is DOTNM that Mat will marry. As according to senchan tradition he has named her his wife three times all she has to do is name him her husband n their marriage is binding within a year and a day. (ironically this year n a day for marriage is same as gai'shan service time so i wonder wat connections that could bring)

Aldura gives him illuminator secret n mat makes fire arms which are (my guess) wat shock lances where in the age of legends.

I'm agreeing with the norse myth trip bout mat losing his eye. At the tower of ghenji (sp?) he will sacrifice it too bring back moriane who has knowledge on how to beat DO from the finn.

I not only (unfortunatley) think that mat will die at TG but so will Perrin n Rand... but in some sort of cataclysmic event where Mat leads seanchan as either a deathwatch Guard, seeker or genral into pit of doom, Perrin leads the commoners n a wolf pack against darkhounds while Rand leads the surving Asha' Man along with Egwene n Aes Sedai into the pit rite up to the dark one.

Well their just guesses but im dam sure will turn out correct cept for the part bout moriane knowing how to kill DO.

Mat's memories are actually his. Mat is a soul that is continually recycled in the Pattern and it is the memories of his past lives that he now has in his head. Before he visited the snakes and foxes he already had old memories floating into his mind. In the EotW he was speaking Old Tongue before he had the dagger from SL. This continued in TGH. Then in TDR Mat has a full blown memory of the battle for Manetheren in chapter 19, Awakening. This to me is evidence that Mat's soul is recycled. The dagger from SL worked holes in his current life's memories and made room for the A & E to replace them with his old lives memories. I also think that Mat is destined in every life to make it to the Tower of Ghenji in either the flesh or spirit. His soul is connected to the tower because it is he who will eventually master the game.

these being Mat has to marry TDOTNM
and the prophecy we technically don't know that one of her damane told her but most likely something along the lines of, "you will marry a man born on the other side of the world, he will remember Hawkwing's face, and carry memories from the Old Blood, and then you will be DOTNM

I certainly hope I'm wrong, but I believe Mat will die by the time the series draws to a close. I'm hoping against hope, but things aren't looking good. Mat is based heavily on Odin of Norse mythology. RJ has already used two ravens (Thought and Memory), had him hanged from a tree for knowledge, and lost an eye (common "half the light of the world" prediction). Odin died in the last battle. Hopefully that will be one things RJ doesn't use.

From what Ive seen I believe this: By Min's viewing, Mat will hear of the Tower of Ghenji, which does in fact exist in the real world, in the Mountains of Mist. He will head home to search for the Tower, finding it, and he will enter and somehow be forced into a gamble in which he will lose one of his eyes(perhaps in a duel with Isam/Luc, or as a payment to the Finn). He will be relying on Courafe to Strengthen, and Iron to Bind. Thom will be using Fire to Blind and Music to Dazzle and will come across Moiraine(who just happened to have let them know when and where they would have to go to the Tower of Ghenji to come save her in her letter to Thom). Mat will marry Tuon, that is obvious. As well as that also by Min's viewing he will be King of Manetheren. I think it unlikely that Mat is anyone specific reborn however, since the only likely candidates are there when he sounds the Horn at Falme.

All three will encounter each other in the additional company of Tuon, et. al., and Mat will lose his prophesied eye saving her from the Gholam. Karede will witness this act and he and Tuon will commence his [Mat's] induction into the Deathwatch Guard, thus fulfilling Egwene's dream of ravens clutching Mat's shoulders so strongly he bled (i.e., the tatoos, which presumably the Guard, as Imperial property, carry in addition to the Seekers.).

What i think "giving up half the light of the world to save the world" means is that Mat will discover firearms.
The evidence for this all his interest in fireworks and in WH the aluminator Aludra asks him if he can figure out what use she'd have for a bellfounder, which is necessary for primitive firearms.
He will use this to "...save the world" but in doing so will have unleashed advanced weaponry on the world thus making it a darker place. Hence "giving up half the light of the world"

Continuing on with the norse mythology metaphor, Odin had to give Thought and Memory his left eye so he could learn the secrets of the universe. I believe Mat will give up his left eye as payment for some kind of knowledge that will allow Rand to win at TG.
