    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

@Son of a Lich! actually the “invader dib” was confirmed false, they never actually planned for that ending, and it was mostly just a joke. In https://zim.fandom.com/wiki/The_Medium-Sized_Book_of_Zim_Scripts:_Vol_1:_Pigs_%27n%27_Waffles, in that book it was confirmed that invader dib wasn’t actually gonna happen

My problem here is it's so hard to tell what's meta commentary versus actual lore. Most of the points made here can be taken as meta jokes. The show was cancelled before it could really get into actual lore unfortunately.

1. gaz and dib have ears and human skin, though. surely then they would only be half alien, if alien at all 2. why does membrane have a human skin tone?????????? all the other irken are green, zim included. even with his disguise. maybe membrane could have formulated a more convincing disguise considering he's likely a lot smarter than zim, but again.. in that scenario, why would gaz and dib, his supposed clones, also have human skintones? again, maybe theyre half-human rather than EXACT clones, but trueheart seems to imply that dib, at least, is an exact clone.

Another theory: Maybe Membrane isn't really an alien, OR even a genius! What if he came across a downed Irken ship years ago, and has been steadily feeding bits and pieces of that superior technology to build himself up as a megastar scientist? And of course, he can't tell his big-mouthed son the truth or else he'll likely spill the beans; ruining his father's reputation and career in one fell swoop! So Membrane tries to 'gently' chastise Dib's efforts at alien-chasing as a way to ward off his own destruction.

There's a LOT of flaws in this theory considering things that Vasquez have said to be canon and absolute to the IZ universe and the comics. Not to mention that when discussing Irken size Sizlor wasn't included. Sizzlor is notably larger than other irkins.

Where's doctor Membrane's PAK then? It's possible he either grew over time but if he's an Irkn then he'll have to have one but his back is notably smooth otherwise he would die in 10 minutes.

This theory could be close but mattpat said himself that the only ones that don't have ears are the father and Zim. Yet Dib and Gaz both have ears. If he is an alien and they are his clones, wouldn't they not have ears as well? The only thing I could see for this to make sense is that he combined human DNA with his own to make Dib and Gaz.

this is such a stretch that my brain is getting muscle cramps. Professor membrane is a normal human who lost his arm in presumably a shark attack (Enter the Florpus “I used to think sharks were my friends. I know better now”) not to mention how Irkens have a water allergy— Afterwards, the prosthetic he was given inspired him to continue “upgrading” his body with prosthetics. Professor membrane’s ears are actually covered and enhanced by prosthetics. This whole prosthetic thing is also why he’s 14FT tall. To address the outfit, only Irken navigators have the big collars. If membrane really knew about Irken technology, he would have been an Irken scientist or technician, which have different uniforms. Dib is a genetic clone of membrane. And just like Membrane, Dib was meant to be scientifically improved. And it showed membrane as a small child *in the video*, and if he was an alien, he wouldn’t have been human at that point, taking your theory into consideration. He was also shown to have real human parents in the comics, who owned membrane labs before him. It’s a family company. And since Irkens are incapable of reproduction without cloning, this would be impossible. I can provide more info if needed lol.

Nice theory! I think this one is actually solid and probably would have been proven right if the series were to ever have another special or be rebooted. This kind of reminds me of the "Rose is Pink Diamond" theory that was proven true years ago.

If you look at season one then you can also notice the epesode were Dib needs to get the permission slip sighed for the eye, with round two to get into the crowd he gets got in a spider suit. Membrane made the tests to get into the crowd and if you look at the spider legs you may notice they look a lot like zim's pak legs

I saw this theory that Gaz is just as smart as Membrane, but doesn't express it because she is not interested in science and stuff. She only cares about her games and food (way too real lol). With that being said, with her and Dib being clones of Membrane, Gaz actually figured that out but never told her dad or Dib.
