    Can you believe that our beloved game of Minecraft was going to be called something much much different? Do you think it would have made the same kind of impact?

  6. Notch persson’s Minecraft character is pretty unique (he drops an apple when he dies)

    Obviously Notch (despite now being removed from the daily activities of Minecraft) deserves a special trait which is only usnie to him. So why not an apple eh?

  7. The bidding for Minecraft (bought for $2.5 Billion) was opened up with just a mere tweet

    In what seemed to be a time when Notch was fed up with his creation, his few tweets indicated that he was willing to sell minecraft. Three months after this tweet Minecraft was sold.

  8. Creepers were created by accident when Persons accidently coded a pig wrong

    In what was a mix up between a coding bug of a pig and TNT, creepers where the birth of a simple accident. What would Minecraft be like today without creepers?

  9. Every 10,000 times you play Minecraft, it will get its own name wrong!

    Did you read that right or is it true that Minecraft gets its own name wrong? Well yes infact but only if you’re privileged to play it over 10,000 times. Here’s to Minceraft!

  10. Ghasts are voiced by a Minecraft’s music producers sleeping cat.

    Even we couldn’t believe this one when we read it, but yes the deadly ghasts are indeed voiced by “C418’s” cat. Too bad he couldn’t do the same for ocelots too.

  11. Minecraft is a big deal in schools in Denmark and Sweden.

    How would you like it if Minecraft was a mandatory part of your school curriculum? Well one lucky school in Sweden teaches students about geography, the environment and the future through Minecraft.

  12. Drinking milk in game will cure you character of any poison.

    If only we could do the same with a nasty hangover eh? It’s true folks, cure ANY poison or effect for that matter with just a sip of milk.

  13. Obtain a dragon egg by putting a piston beside it and pushing it off the ledge.

    Just killed the enderdragon and wanting something to brag about to your friends with? Well, too bad because it’s not like you’ll just be able to pick it up. Instead you’ll need to use a pistondragon egg minecraft facts

  14. You can drag any mob with a fishing rod.

    This one is pretty funny to watch in fact. Craft yourself a fishing rod and throw it at a mob and watch in disbelief as you get to drag this mob around like your own personal pet. (shame we can’t do the same to other players too)

  15. You cannot open a chest if a cat is sitting on top of it.

    Looking to get into your chest? Well too bad if your beloved ocelot has decided to sit on the thing (At least you can still command them where to sit). Those darn ocelots… Always getting in the way of things.

  16. Pumpkins are rarer and harder to find then diamonds.

    In a world where Pumpkins are actually harder to find than diamonds you’d think we would all be rich and living the life. Well no…. Because diamonds are still pretty hard to find!

  17. Enderman become passive again if they come into contact with water

    Ok picture this, you’ve accidentally given your innocent look to the unsuspecting enderman and know he’s hunting you down. Well just jump into some water and hope the enderman follows you to become passive.

  18. Villagers will only breed if there is a wooden door in the village.

    Looking to get down and naughty? Well make sure the door’s closed… or at least have a door in that case.

  19. Despite having no arms, creepers will still can climb ladders.

    Who ever said we need hands, arms or any limbs for that matter? Well creepers surely don’t as they can actually climb ladders without the need for arms at all.

  20. Cats don’t take fall damage.

    Taking 9 lives to a whole new level, within Minecraft our beloved ocelots won’t take any fall damage what’s so ever. Stabbing them with a sword on the over hand might be a different story.

  21. The best layer to mine for diamonds is layer 12.

    In some point of our Minecraft careers we’ve all been on a quest for diamonds. But did you know that Mining for diamonds can be made much easier if you decide to excavate on the 12th layer?

  22. It’s a lot easier to catch fish in the rain

    Up until this point we’ve all thought rain was a useless and annoying thing that makes a terrible noise and lowers our visibility. Well yes that’s true, but it does have a purpose after all! It makes it easier to catch fish!

  23. You can also fish underwater with a fishing rod.

    Fed up with staying on land all the time? Do you think it’s time to explore the vast and fierce oceans? At least you can take your fishing rod with you.

  24. A creeper’s fuse will slow down if it’s caught in a cobweb.

    If you’ve ever been annoyed by a cobweb then you might not be so annoyed if you knew that they could potentially save your life if a creeper is ever after you.

  25. A skeleton will shoot itself if you are below or above it.

    We’ve all been there. It’s pitch black and you’re lost trying to find your way home. Then suddenly a skeleton comes out of nowhere and starts shooting you! No worries, position yourself directly above or below it and it will start to slowly kill itself.skeleton scary minecraft facts

  26. If you try to grow a tree in the Nether it will appear dead with brown leaves.

    The nether is already pretty barren, but trees? Trees? Well it’s no doubt that trying to grow a tree in the nether will lead to some pretty dead resultss. Quite literally.

  27. Skeletons and zombies can live during the day if they stand on soul sand.

    Everyone knows that if they are sheltered from the sun no burning will happen but they can also survive on the slow soul sand. Clearly we are missing some healing ability that soul sand possesses.

  28. Tamed wolves will attack you if you shoot yourself with an arrow.

    If there’s one thing we’ve learned from wolves, under no circumstances you want to piss one off, otherwise the whole herd will be after you. The same goes for you, so try not to shoot yourself ok?

  29. If you kill a cow, chicken or pig with fire they will drop cooked meat.

    Everybody loves a spitroast yeah? Remove the hassle by simply setting your innocent cow, chicken or pig on fire. After you’ve done so you’ll notice (after you’ve heard their screams of pain from the flames) they’ll drop you a rather juicy looking piece of cooked meat.

  30. You can sleep during the day in a thunderstorm.

    During a thunderstorm it gets dark pretty darn quickly. So it makes sense that you’ll be able to sleep through a particularly loud and scary thunderstorm. After all this is Minecraft.

  31. Denmark recreated its entire nation on minecraft.

    Denmark is a pretty large place! So recreating in Minecraft must’ve been a pretty mean feat. Well luckily for you some unlucky and pretty dedicate punters decided to do just this, for your playing pleasure.

  32. After Denmark recreated its nation, Vandals broke into the server, bombed the towns and built US flags on the rubble.

    The destruction by the Americans of Denmark on Minecraft upset many Danish people as their country was destroyed and mocked by the Americans.

  33. You can eat spider eyes.

    Amongst some of the petty gross things I’ve done, eating spider eyes are not one of them. Some may shudder at the thought of eating the oversized insects eyes for food, but hey, if you’re hungry, you’re hungry right?

  34. You can dye a tame wolves collar.

    If you want to make your pet wolf a little more like yours then why not die its collar the same as your favorite colour? It’s a great way to make your beloved pet feel a little more at home.minecraft wolfs minecraft facts

  35. You can climb on the roof of the nether.

    Ever needed not to be detected by the Blazes and Wither Skeletons as you attack the nether fortress? There is now a simpler way, by climbing the roof of the fortress. That way you can now attack them stealthily, without raising alarm or be swarmed by your enemies.


  36. If you put carpet on top of a fence you can jump on it.

    If you’re ever in a pickle and trapped behind a fence then quickly get around it by simply placing a carpet on top of it. Yes as simple as that!

  37. Nether fence and wooden fences won’t connect.

    If you are running out of wooden fence and you are desperate to keep out those pesky invader and all you have is nether fences, stop right there. You can try to connect them but it won’t work.

  38. If you wear a pumpkin on your head you are invisible to endermen.

    Everybody is always at risk of accidently looking an enderman directly in the face. Well quickly get around this by putting a pumpkin in your head and all your worries will be a thing of the past.

  39. Leather armour is the only armour that can be dyed.

    Diamond armour is good and all, and I guess iron armour is too. But can you dye them? I think not. Craft yourself some leather armour and you’ll be able to make it any brownish leathery color you want.

  40. You can make mobs go upside down if you name them Dinnerbone with a name tag.

    Dinnerbone is a well known developer in the Minecraft community so naturally he must have a fancy little easter egg. It’s true name any mob you want with the name of Dinnerbone and just like that they will turn upside down.dinnerbone spider minecraft facts

  41. A sheep will go multicolured if you name it Jeb_ with a name tag.

    Just like dinnerbone, Jeb_ is too a highly respected Minecraft dev. That’s why he gets his very own Minecraft easter egg too. Just this one is a little more colourful.

  42. If you throw something onto a cactus it will disappear.

    If you need to remove excess materials, like dirt, and you have no available lava. You’re in luck, just throw them at some cactus and the material will no longer be a problem.

  43. If you surround a village with doors the chances of spawning an iron golem will increase.

    In this rather bizarre Minecraft fact, you’ll increase your chances massively of spawning an iron golem by simply introducing more doors to a village of your choice.

  44. Villagers think any enclosed space with a door is a house.

    Make your villagers a new house or trick them into expansion with this simple fact. Maybe with give more credit to villagers than we first thought as they’re not as intelligent as we first thought.

  45. Baby animals don’t drop loot to discourage players from killing baby animals.

    This is supposed to stop you from killing them, but I bet some of you out there do kill the baby animals.

  46. You can use villagers as sacrifices for zombies.

    Get a free “get out of jail card” by claiming a villager as your personal sacrifice to the zombies after your juicy brain. Go ahead try it.

  47. Zombie pigmen can have babies.

    Ewww.zombie pig man and baby minecraft facts

  48. 1 block of water will prevent fall damage from ANY height.

    Are you being chased by a zombie, skeleton or creeper and are running towards a cliff? Screw gravity and just jump, hoping that there is water underneath, and you will survive any fall, regardless of the height.

  49. Rain has a slight chance of filling a cauldron.

    It’s the little details in Minecraft that make the game for all of us. That’s why this small fact is pretty interesting but pretty useless at the same time.

  50. Endermen were called Farlanders before the Ender was created.

    Was this because they could teleport long distances?

  51. Double wooden slabs cannot burn.

    Ever want a house that cannot burn down at all? Just build your house out of wooden slabs and you will defy physics and amuse your friends.

  52. If you build a house close enough to a village villagers will start spawning in and around it.

    Like the fact a little further back, if you ever want to expand your village then you can easily do so by building a house close by to an existing village. Sooner or later you’ll have a villager mega city that you can no longer control.

  53. Water wells have a 1/1000 chance of spawning in the desert.

    Thirsty anyone? Be one in a thousand with this unique chance of some pretty sandy water spawning rights in the middle of a desert.

  54. Supercharged Zombies and creepers can be created from lightning.

    It’s literally the stuff of nightmares.SUPERCHARGED FREAKING CREEPERS. Just pray that you’ll never run into one as their explosion radius is much much higher.super charged creeper minecraft facts

  55. Throwing a weakness potion to a Zombie villager and feeding him a golden apple will cure him of his zombie virus.

    Only this would happen in the movies, you would go throw so many apples. Also would you help your zombie villager become a villager again? It’s much easier to kill them instead.

  56. Swords don’t break blocks in creative mode.

    An annoyance or something useful? Well don’t worry about accidentally breaking anything if equipped with a sword (but remember this is only in creative)

  57. If a creeper is killed by a skeleton it will drop a music disc.

    The practical ability of this happening is very slim, but if this occurs you will gain some music to play in your home whilst it’s being attacked by some zombies. (I guess the music would be very creepy)

  58. If you hit an endermen in the legs it decreases the chances of the endermen teleporting.

    If you want to cripple an enderman that’s after you, then make sure to hit them dead in the legs. If you do so then chances of them teleporting hugely decrease.

  59. Zombies can equip any armour or weapons.

    If you thought that a zombie without any armour or weapons was as bad, picture it with a diamond sword chasing you and trying to hack you to pieces.zombie in gold armor minecraft facts

  60. Baby zombies won’t drop the armour and weapons it has picked up.

    In a rather annoying situation, the little critters (that like to chase you down no matter where you are) just wont drop their items for you.

  61. If you ride a pig with a carrot on a stick, you will be leading any other pigs in the area.

    Advance my pig army and attack my enemies. Also they will follow you of a cliff, so have fun.

  62. If a pig is struck with lightning it becomes a zombie pigman.

    You could be walking around during a lightning storm and BANG, a pig in front of you gets struck by lightning and becomes a pigmen. Now you have a zombie pigmen running after you and you aren’t even in the nether.

  63. The one millionth person who bought the game was given a cape called the Million Cape.

    Imagine being so lucky that you get your very own Minecraft cape that’s only just for you. But then also imagine be the one millionth person to purchase the game? That’s some serious Minecraft cred that you’ll get.

  64. Squids don’t make noise.

    This is a hostile mob and doesn’t pose a threat to you, so thank god it doesn’t attack you because it would attack you without hearing it sneak up on you and kill you without you even knowing.

  65. Cat’s can scare away creepers.

    If you were debating on whether or not to tame yourself an ocelot then this might sway you the right way. It turns out that they will keep those pesky creepers away

  66. Pistons started off as a mod, which then mojang implemented.

    The pistons are very useful in minecraft today, so without them we couldn’t build in depth structures with them.

  67. Melons can spawn in the Jungle.

    While this particular food source won’t actually have any affect on your status or help with hunger much, it’s still a pretty unusual thing to find in a jungle.minecraft melons minecraft facts

  68. Ghasts sound doesn’t fade away like the other mobs.

    If you’ve ever listened closely to the screech of a ghast then you’ll have noticed that they don’t fade away like the other mobs.

  69. Any mob with the exception of Bosses can ride a minecart.

    Ever wanted to transport a zombie towards its death? Easy, just spawn one into a minecart and speed it of to its death. This can work with anything but a Wither or the Ender Dragon.

  70. Enderman cannot teleport in a ditch that’s 2 blocks deep.

    Being the lanky mobs they are, endermen do not like being in tight places. So if you ever have an enderman and the terrible noise following you, just hop into a ditch.

  71. If lightning strikes a villager is becomes a witch

    If you’re fed up of looking at your bog standard testificate, then worry no longer as all you need to do is might for lightning to strike. As soon as that happens you’ll be presented with a Villager witch!

  72. A bow at full power is strong enough to break a boat.

    Not that the minecraft boats are the strongest pieces of engineering, as they can be thwarted by a small lily pad, but they can also be destroyed by a fully powered bow. So if you’re ever in a boat race, bring a bow!

  73. Soul sand placed on ice will make you run even slower.

    If running on ice was any easier? Now you run even slower and will easily be attacked by your enemies, like a spider.

  74. Ghasts cannot destroy cobblestone.

    Who knew such a common and cheap block was also blast proof? Well if you ever need to build a hut in the nether and move there (I think there’s a song about that) then use Cobblestone for a cheap indestructible material.

  75. Feeding a horse amount of food will make it a lot easier to tame.

    This makes taming horses much faster so you can get from one place to another faster. But you get depleted of your food supply. Decisions, decisions.

  76. You cannot see water through ice.

    If you’re ever ice fishing make sure to follow the golden minecraft rule and DON’T DIG DOWN. Because you may fall into a freezing cold ocean that’s right below you.

  77. Magma cubes cannot swim in lava.

    Magma cubes are one hot mob. Unfortunately hot and cold does NOT mix. If you throw em in water or they accidentally fall in then you can be sure that they won’t survive.minecraft lava cube minecraft facts

  78. Most of the endermans sounds are people saying hello and what’s up, which is then slowed down and reversed.

    You can now speak to enderman, if you could speak in reverse.

  79. You cannot see a nether portal behind ice.

    This is great if you are trying to hide your portal away from your friends online, but there is one problem, what if you cannot find it?

  80. It takes around 10 minutes for a stack of 64 items to smelt.

    Time is a luxury to most people, so naturally the same applies in Minecraft. luckily if you’re looking to smelt a 64 stack of items it will only take 10 real life minutes (around half a Minecraft day)

  81. Both types of spiders cannot climb ice.

    We all know that ice is slippery but did you know that it was so gosh darn slippery that even spiders cannot climb on it. So just build an ice fortress and you will be safe from those eight legged demons.

  82. A fully charged bow does as much damage as a diamond sword.

    If you don’t have enough or any diamonds to create a diamond sword, just use your trusty bow and you will achieve the same damage equivalent to the sword. This will easily dispose of those evil zombies that are smashing down your door.

  83. It takes four and a half minutes to destroy obsidian with your fists.

    Although you won’t actually keep the block, and may be extremely bored, you can indeed spend four and half minutes of your valuable time breaking obsidian.

  84. Torches melt ice.

    You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to know this one. Place a torch or glowstone around ice and you’ll be subject to a watery surrounding of melted ice. Luckily you can use a sponge to clear that mess up!

  85. By placing a torch under sand or gravel will break it.

    Need some sand or gravel? Just place a torch underneath the blocks and the blocks will break. Easy.

  86. Jack o lantern can be placed in water without the torch extinguishing.

    If you’ve ever wanted to light up your underwater city without have to shell out loads on glowstone you maybe able to find a simpler solution. Yep, create yourself a pumpkin farm and make a bunch of torches. Now you have a great underwater light supply.

  87. Redstone originally were going to be gears.

    You know what really grinds my gears? Redstone. no but seriously Redstone could of easily of been under a mechanic of gears. Would that of made things easier or harder?

  88. Baby zombies can ride chickens.

    We may have horses but they have chicken cavalry. Whilst it may be cute it is incredibly dangerous. Have you ever tried to catch a chicken with your hands? Well don’t because its impossible.zombie chicken jockey minecraft facts

  89. Skeletons can ride spiders.

    Okay so this one isn’t cute like the last one. One terrible thing riding another makes for a wall climbing arrow firing death machine.

  90. Snow golems can damage blazers.

    Best way to put out a flame based mob? just throw snowballs at it to put it out. The snow golems will do it for you by firing infinite snowballs at them.

  91. Endermen can pick up roses.

    Why not spend valentine’s day with an enderman? After all they may just give you a rose. (Ok yes they do pick up pretty much any block, but hey it’s a romantic gesture after all.)

  92. You can place water in the nether if you use silk touch on ice.

    The water can be created when the ice has melted in the nether. Be quick though, the water dries up within the blink of an eye.

  93. Juke boxes can be used as fuel for a furnace.

    Fed up with c418’s mad beats? Why not burn the jukebox instead? Problem solved.

  94. Placing a skeleton spawn egg in the nether creates a wither skeleton.

    Ever needed to spawn a Wither Skeleton in the Nether but only had a skeleton egg (although you probably never have to)? Just place a Skeleton and a Wither Skeleton will spawn instead.wither minecraft facts

  95. If you jump off a cliff in a boat and jump out at the last second you won’t get fall damage.

    When you are being chased by a zombie or a skeleton and you only have a boat, just climb inside and jump off. BUT be careful, if you don’t jump out before you hit the floor, you will become roadkill on the grassy floor.

  96. Emeralds can only be found in extreme mountain biomes.

    It really sucks having to walk so far to one biome, to find a emerald ore, to only get one emerald. Plus this are also rare, so is there a point of looking for them? What if a extreme mountain biome doesn’t even spawn in your area?

  97. A wolf will not attack a creeper.

    Maybe this is a secret fear of the wolves? Or they are letting the Ocelots have their own job in Minecraft? Or maybe they have a respect for the Creepers? Whatever it is, it would be better if they did.

  98. Trip wires can be tripped by arrows.

    If you want to surprise your unsuspecting opponent, then make sure to use a tripwire to send an arrow to the knee. Or maybe the skull depending on how generous you are feeling.

  99. Having a staredown with an enderman is bad for your health.

    If you look at an enderman in the eye, it will have very bad repercussions in your health. You will have a stand off, before he charges at you and kills you within three hits. This will damage your health until you die.

  100. Blocking halves the amount of damage taken.

    If you want to take less damage and survive a potential fatal blow then you can use a nifty blocking tactic to throw your enemy off guard. Yes you may still take a little bit of damage but at least you may not die.

  101. Wooden buttons can be hit and activated with arrows.

    The best way to really master your archery is by shooting animals going about their day but why not save the pigs and practice by targeting some wooden buttons you find across your travels instead.

  102. A single piece of coal is enough to cook 8 pieces of food.

    Feeling a bit peckish? We’ll make sure to cook that meat thoroughly… No but seriously if you’re looking to use up the last of your coal supplies be safe in the knowledge that you’ll only need to use one to cook an 8 stack.

  103. Wooden tools last longer than gold ones.

    You may have re-read this one for sure, but I can promise you it’s true. Although they may last longer they certainly do not rear through materials at the same rate as gold.gold sword minecraft facts

  104. Every mob that is naturally spawned in the nether is immune to fire.

    Are you in the Nether? Thinking that you can light a blaze on fire? Think again. All mobs in the Nether are immune to fire attacks, so if you try they will still advance and laugh at your attack. However, they aren’t immune to lava.

  105. You can attack with a sword whilst blocking.

    Remember that fact about blocking? Well it turns out you can still fight with your sword even whilst you block meaning it could lead to some pretty interesting battles. Remember though, blocking does reduce your hit range.

  106. Water can naturally flow 8 blocks.

    If you’re one of those people that wants to always get the most out of your resources then make this fact may be extremely useful to you. Soon enough you’ll be on your way to creating whole oceans of the stuff.

  107. Plants can use any light source to grow.

    Instead of waiting for your beautiful roses to grow in the sun, why not help them on their way with a few added torches because we all definitely play minecraft to be the best gardeners we can be.

  108. Only two mobs catch fire in the daylight, Zombies and skeletons.

    This is great for you if you are being attacked by zombies or skeletons and daytime appears. They set alight and run for shade, this is a brilliant time to strike and get your payback. However, this doesn’t work on creepers or spiders, so beware still.zombie on fire minecraft facts

  109. Explosions which take place in water won’t affect the terrain.

    Worried about a creeper attack inside you beautifully designed home? Well do not fear. Just simply fill your house with water as you kill them to save your house. Warning, you may have a water problem afterwards.

  110. Mobs cannot spawn on half blocks such as slabs.

    If you are hoping to create a dimly lit city without the worry of creepers blowing all your stuff up, then use this fact to help you along your merry way. You see half blocks in Minecraft are just not seen as real block, thus mobs cannot spawn on them.

  111. 1 day in minecraft time equates to 20 minutes in real time.

    If you think that you spend too much time on Minecraft then just wait until you realize that one whole day in Minecraft is in fact just 20 Minutes. That means you’ll get 72 Minecraft days in 24 hours.


  112. If a skeleton shoots another hostile mob, that mob will attack the skeleton.

    Get yourself out of a sticky situation by using some of the other various creatures as a cunning distraction. Just make sure you are far far away once the skeleton has been dealt with.

  113. Lapis is rarer to find than diamond.

    This probably doesn’t matter to most minecrafters, as it’s not as useful as diamonds and you can only use them in Enchanting and dyeing the colours.

  114. You can use any meat to tame a dog, even rotten flesh.

    It may be a bit on the stingy side but you’ll be able to tame man’s best friend forever. No matter what meat you want to give them you can always be content that they’ll love you.

  115. By placing two water blocks in a 4×4 square, you’ll create an infinite water pool.

    Make a nice jacuzzi for your home or just a random, annoying hole for animals to fall in. Either way, you’ll never run out of water.

  116. Breeding sheep of different colours has the possibility of getting a mixed coloured sheep.

    (blue + red = purple) Want to see a colourful animal? Breed two colours together that go and you will gain exactly that.coloured sheep minecraft facts

  117. Rabbits do not care about obstacles as long as they get a carrot.

    I wish my rabbit was as dedicated as the rabbits on minecraft. I would be tempted to create a whole obstacle course just to see what these impressive rabbits can do.

  118. If you place a bed in the nether it will explode.

    What sounds like a nightmare is actually true. Just make sure you bed doesn’t somehow end up in the never while you sleep otherwise, things could get messy.

  119. Every 1 block in the nether is 8 blocks in the normal world.

    If you have to travel from one place to another but it takes over a day to travel there, just build two Nether portals from the two places in the nether and it will save you so much time.

  120. Double plants can protect you from most mobs.

    While many users are showing off their diamond encrusted swords, you should stand tall and proud with your rose bush. Don’t always feel you need the shiny, new weapons because sometimes, the most unlikely weapons and defences are the most useful.

  121. Chickens, Baby Zombies, Silverfish and endermites can fit into a quarter block.

    When you thought that if you blocked the monsters away by placing a block in between the gap, that nothing would get through? Well think again. These critters can fit through any gap and do you damage.

  122. In the End, Invisible Endermen are translucent purple from a distance.

    Don’t let those Endermen fool you and let your guard down, they may look like they are innocent, but get any closer and they will attack you with all their might.

  123. After a enderman kills you, it can not be provoked through looking at it.
