10. Elmo

Elmo Minecraft skin

Sesame street has offered us a treat in the realm of Minecraft skins:

Elmo is an iconic figure in Muppets and will be instantly recognisable by people of all ages. If you’re looking for a loveable, fluffy skin then this ones got your back.

But that’s not the best part:

This skin  is built on the Minecraft 3D mechanics of skins allowing you to have an elmo sized head. Your face will be your “hat” instead of being attached to your face which leads to a great 3D effect.

9. Iron Man

Iron Man Minecraft skin

Straight out of a Marvel movie is Iron Man.

Although you won’t be able to shoot lasers from your hands or fly around the world at ultrasonic speed,  it WILL make you look extremely cool.

This metal suit will give you a glimmering edge to other players. You’ll look great and get the chance to act like an eccentric billionaire all at the same time!

8. Herobrine HD

Herobrine HD Minecraft SKin

Herobrine has long been an ominous figure within Minecraft.

With this “new” HD version of Herobrine you’ll be able to scare your friends in high definition. Whether it’s worn as joke or a daily skin, Herobrine HD is great for:

  • tricks
  • laughs
  • more tricks

This is what makes it so good:

It’s a fresh approach to an overused skin in Minecraft.

But, with more pixels packed into the same small space you can expect much more detail.

7. Slender man

Slender Man Minecraft Skin

This horror game figure has somehow (in a very twisted way) made it on to our top 10 Minecraft skins list.

Slenderman has scared many players over the years, however this skin now gives you the chance too.

Sneak up on your friends from behind and give them a scare., feel empowered as a character that has made grown men cry, or use this skin to spook your opponents into surrender.

Watch out though:

I’ve never seen a fight between Slender man and Herobrine in minecraft. If you happen to come across each other then it could be very interesting.

6. Homer Simpson

Homer Simpson Minecraft SKin

Lots of people are a fan of the simpsons.

Therefore it comes as no surprise to find Homer Simpson right here near the top of our list.

This skin is great because of this one small thing:

Lots of creative detail has gone into this skin to make it closely resemble the real actual simpsons character. These small details is what sells a skin like this and makes it the very best it could be.

5. Batman

Batman Minecraft Skin

“Im batman”

Okay… Yes you caught me:

I’m not actually Batman.

However you could be with this stunning skin that’s modeled on everybody’s favorite superhero, Batman.

You can strut around showing of your gear and pretend to fight crime with an outfit that matches your attitude. Heck you could even join the Arkham Network Minecraft server and grapple from building to building.

4. Yeti

Yeti Minecraft Skin

This AWESOME looking skin made it onto our Top 10 Minecraft skins of 2014 list and has been around for ages!

If the friendly furry feel is what you want then this Yeti skin will do wonders for you.

Players both far and near will gaze at you in wonder as your crazy eyes will move around thanks to the clever way in which this skin has been made.

But thats not all:

This skin is an original piece and has made its way as one of the best Minecraft skins down to the detail / effort put into it by its creator.

3. Legend of Zelda

Link Minecraft skin

Legend of Zelda is considered a milestone in many childhood gamer’s memories.

Putting on this skin will mask your appearance as Link from the original Legend of Zelda.

Here’s best part:

This is a classic skin that any gamer will be able to identify. Even if you haven’t played the Legend of Zelda before, EVERYONE will know who you are with the retro piece of art.

2. Ender Steve

Ender Steve Minecraft Skin

This is by no means your bog standard skin.

Ender Steve is a hybrid between your everyday “Enderman” and good old “Steve”.

Together they create an eerie vibe that’s enough to make any unexpecting Minecraft player run the other way.

Although you won’t be able to teleport to anywhere on the map, you’ll get the chance to look way cooler than anyone else out there.

If you can’t commit to one skin then why not be two in one?

Mooshroom Cow Minecraft Skin

This mooshroom skin makes a great addition to any skin wardrobe.

Some would even say you’ll look much better than the “udders”

Okay, enough with the Cow puns…

Mooshrooms were added into the 1.9 Minecraft update in addition to the Mushroom Biome in which they spawn. This means you’ll be a rare occurrence in the Minecraft world and will look pretty unique too.

It’s made it as our Best Minecraft skin of all time because it is so different from others.

Besides who doesn’t want to walk around as a cow?
