  • This does not include responses that can stand alone as its own theory.
  • Usage of an indented bullet does not imply the statement is a response.

See the Lostpedia theory policy for more details.

  • This was an attempt of a red herring by the producers (the sheet of script is faked) - the monster isn't really a biomechanic machine: it is actually something completely different.
  • The mapinguari was a concept for the monster that was thrown around before the black smoke was decided upon. The mapinguari might even exist within the Lost mythology, but it is not the monster.
  • In the post "Not In Portland" podcast, the Mapinguari is mentioned by Carlton and Damon.
