Is it worth mentioning that "I am that is" is not actually an acronym for "Matthias"? There's an extra "i". —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 05:11 3 February 2008. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

"Am that is" is the acronym, and as Martin is Matthias (I - Am That Is) it is accurate. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 06:54, 3 February 2008 (UTC)


Why don't we call this page "Matthias the Warrior"? why just matthias? —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 17:11, 23 February 2008. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

It's not his name. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 20:22, 23 February 2008 (UTC)
Could you please reference where Matthias is addressed as "Matthias the Warrior" in Redwall or Mattimeo please, I couldn't find it. --LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 03:41, 20 March 2008 (UTC)

Actually, It is mentioned in the first chapters of Mattimeo. Constance refers to him as Matthias the Warrior, as do others. 07:25, June 30, 2010 (UTC)Tanglemorph198.53.83.241 07:25, June 30, 2010 (UTC)

it also calls him that in Pearls of Lutra when they are burning down ST Ninians |User:Lordsunflash 22:45, July 17, 2010 (UTC)|
'Reference' means cite specific page numbers. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 23:26, July 17, 2010 (UTC)

Does the mentioning of the Matthias and Methuselah bells count as a mention of the characters? (I think in Doomwyte it says they were named for "two long-gone heroes" - that seems like a mention to me.) Tahnok84 17:22, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

No. The character have to be specifically alluded to. --LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 01:21, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

Oh. Ok. Tahnok84 13:16, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

If I recall rightly

He was referred to as "Matthias of Redwall/ Redwall Abbey" in Mattimeo. Shouldn't the pag ebe "Matthias of Redwall?"

I don't have Mattimeo, or I;d back up my claim.

As a further note, "matthias the warrior" was in the TV show.

That's not a's fine as Matthias. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 21:36, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

i believe the closest they got to actually calling him "Matthias the warrior" is calling him a warrior mouse they probably would have called him that history-wise but they never(as far as i know) called him "the warrior" |User:Lordsunflash 03:43, June 27, 2010 (UTC)|


There has been a real contest with who's right on this one. =) Why does it matter anyway? Charie Swordmaid MossflowerChrisBaker Chat! 21:46, 9 February 2009 (UTC)

Here are all the references I've found

  • on page 320 of Redwall it says "When Log-a-Log awoke from out of the trance he saw his friend, Matthias the Warrior."
  • In Redwall it says in the epilogue(page 351) "Father Abbot went out fishing with Matthias the Warrior"
  • Pg 15 ofMattimeo constance says "Son of Matthias the warrior, look at me!"
  • Pg 21(Chapter 5) of Mattimeo at the very beginning of the chapter it calls him "Matthias the warrior of Redwall"
  • Page 42 slagar says(wile explaining his plan to Halftail) "That Matthias the warrior would go at us like a thunderbolt"
  • Page 57 the book again refers to him as this saying "Matthias the Warrior of Redwall stepped forward"(When Slagar first arrives)
  • Page 304 of Mattimeo Matthias himself says it is his title saying "I am Matthias the Warrior and these are my friends" to the Old Rabbit
  • and on Pg 265 of Pearls of Lutra "The first was Cluny the scourge in the times of Matthias the Warrior."" said by Rollo shortly before burning down saint Ninians

And if that isn't enough just look for yourself there are TONS of them and he's call the "Warrior" and variants of it numerous times in Mattimeo. so that is your proof TBT( I've also posted these on your talk page if you look) Lordsunflash Sunflash2 May The Wind Be at Your Back, Matey

PS if your still not happy then we could do a poll

What is Matthias's relationship with Mattimeo at the start of MATTIMEO? I mean, they obviously love each deep down inside, but Matthias seems easily frustrated with his son, and vice versa.

Mattimeo gets into trouble alot, and that can get on any parent's nerves (I don't know that from experience though).--Gandr Adderbane Slayer of Snakes 17:23, November 1, 2010 (UTC)

I think this article name should be Matthias the Warrior because it was changed from "Matthias" to "Matthias the Warrior" after the events of Redwall.

i believe that "Matthias the Warrior" is correct. Besides he is a warrior. But i have a question how does Matthias find his armor? ~Katflower


Should we have a period after the Death: Old Age? No other articles have them. --The Fivemole Beech O Mole of Truth! Dig swift and sure, that Evil be Buried and Good Surface! 03:22, May 3, 2012 (UTC)

Do we really need the symbols? They just take up space. I hardly know what they are, some sort of international language? The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 02:51, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Where does it say Matthias dies of old age? Thanks if you answer! ~Katflower the Warrioress —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 21:23, May 4, 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!

It is mentioned in the epilogue and books after Redwall and Mattimeo.The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 22:19, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

But really, what are the symbols about? The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 23:27, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

There is no need to repeat questions. They're fine. See here. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 23:51, May 4, 2012 (UTC)

Sorry if I seem annoying or repetitious, and for these one sided conversations. I just thought that no one would notice after no one replied after many other edits. It appeared to be too far back to notice in the recent changes for anyone to think that it has an unanswered question on it. However, the symbols are some International Language, but why are they here? Is Matthias international? The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 04:34, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

It's not an international "language," - it's a pronunciation guide. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 14:10, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

Okay, thank you. The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 15:06, May 5, 2012 (UTC)

How does Matthias find the armor???? I've been wondering that forever. ~Katflower the Warrioress of all Redwall! Dare to have a duel? —This unsigned comment was added by (talkcontribs) 23:23, May 9, 2012. Please sign your posts with ~~~~!


Was Matthias a slave for King Bull Sparra? Should he be in the category? The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 23:46, May 28, 2012 (UTC)

I think it was fairly obvious in the book that Matthias was Bull's prisoner but not his slave..... Vilaya Don't tread on me! 00:49, May 29, 2012 (UTC)SalemtheCruel

King Bull Sparra captured Matthias when he climbed up to the Sparra court. Due to the pleas of his sister, he spared Matthias, but kept him as a slave for her. See our own website. The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 04:22, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

I think the term 'slave' is a bit excessive, personally. -- LordTBT Tbtico Talk! 05:12, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Okay. Thank you TBT. Sorry to annoy you. The Fivemole Grumm Burr Aye, Gurt Zurrs!! 22:26, May 29, 2012 (UTC)

Hi i was really, really wondering Okay Matthias and Cornflower are NOT the same age as John and Mrs. Churchmouse right???????????? Because they were holding Tim and Tess when they were babes Right??? Please,Please answer this I need to know. Thank you! JjJjoOoOoOoOoO Jjokabbdela the warrior guy (Jo-Cab-dee-lo)

Seven others?

Ok, so the article says Matthias and 7 others were in charge and Military Commanders, so I ask, who are these other 7? O.o Nikolai Banks (talk) 01:36, May 2, 2013 (UTC)


When did Matthias use a sling? Sorry, I can't recall. --{{SUBST:Template:Warriorfan123/Sig}} 12:32, February 20, 2015 (UTC)

Matthias, Protagonist of TV Series?

I've been think, but would any of you consider Matthias to be the Main Protagonist of the Redwall TV Series or Martin?

Matthias appears in more episodes than Martin; a total of 28 and Martin only appears in 14. excluding his voice in Season 1 and 2. However, during Season 3, Matthias makes two appearances the beginning of the first episode, and as a non speaking cameo in the final. Personally, I think Matthias is the main protagonist of the TV Series. But in the books, Brian Jacques did not want to make a main protagonist of his series. So, he decided each book would have its hero and villain.
