Herobrine


Hint: clicking and reading the picture will help you understand this article.

According to the originators of the story, Herobrine is an old username from some older, Swedish online-gaming databases. Herobrine is the retired username of a dead brother of 'Notch', aka Markus Alexej Persson, who is the creator of the game 'Minecraft'. Herobrine (or 'HIM') is a wandering figure with the same basic skin as the default character in single player mode, but instead of the standard eyes, Herobrine's eyes are completely white with a slight glow. If you enter a world with Herobrine in it you will often find evidence of his existance like clay or sand pyramids, tunnels that are obviously man (or computer) made, instead of the randomly generated ones, tree without leaves on them, underground chambers with immobile zombies, or large patches of forrest set ablaze. Others claim that they have used Cartograph (a minecraft addon that shows all the randomly generated parts of your single player map) and found things that require user crafting to exist.

(See: http://www.minecraftforum.net/viewtopic.php?f=35&t=97932)

Another strange part of the story is that the moderator's of Minecraft Wiki frobid a Herobrine page to be posted on their site. All of the stories claim that Herobrine will not interact with users in any way, but will simply walk into the fog or out of your viewable area. In this video there are a few still shots of Herobrine though about half of them are clearly faked; Herobrine is obviously just photoshopped onto a wall or window. The X-Files music is a nice touch though.



The story of Herobrine has been called everything from "possible" to "ridiculous". Notch has said before on Twitter that the only brother he has ever had is a half-brother whom he does not see very often, but that doesn't stop people from posting youtube videos, creating obviously faked sightings, and talking about HIM on forums all over the web. It is possible that Notch programmed him into the game to spawn every one in a million times a new world is created, but unless someone finds something hidden in the code, I guess we'll never know.

  1. I am totally freaked of Herobrine, I won't be scared if I find the truth and not the lies made about Herobrine. There are ways of course to fake him so this story may be just be some YouTube scare attempt

    1. i am also freaked about this story have you seen him since 1.2 came out i am on a herobrine hunt and i need some good info

      Delete
    2. if you see small perfect pyramids that's him,
      if you see chickens in weird areas (caves underground ravines.etc) run as far away because that's meaning he's near,
      if you see animals with no eyes and you didn't install a texture pack that makes animal eyes go white, he's near,
      if you see 2X2 tunnels lit with Redstone torches, that's Herobrines tunnel.

    1. Hmmmm.....interesting.....half scream, half growl.......what you need to do is go to that house again, destroy it completely, and see what happens. I had a similar situation and that's what I did and herobrine came but I rn away. I'm lucky my minecraft character survived.

  22. Okay so (not reading the comments to see if anyone else has posted this) but i've been a minecraft fan since literally day 1 (i watched Notches streams of him creating alpha and such)

    I didnt really want to buy the full game (In alpha at the time) so i simply watched a youtube channel of a player. This youtube channel was one of the biggest early minecraft 'lets players' and if you watch some of their you will simply be watching minecraft gameplay, as you'd expect but people started pointing out in the comments strange happenings in the guys world. Often a figure (herobrine) standing FAR in the distance. Everybody disregarded as it wasnt clear in the videos and mostly could only be seen close in streams where the quality wasnt clear enough to make any fair assumptions or judgements...

    Eventually a video was released of an investigation and it simply showed the player walking about and then seeing a figure (herobrine) right in front of him, causing him to scream (the player) and jump backwards and fall to his death in a cave.

    Of course alot of people said it was fake (AS IT WAS) because of different things...
    Figure stood completely still and fitted a 2 block place unlike Steve (YOU) who actually stands 1.7 (or so...) blocks tall.
    This figure fitted all sides of the corridor it was standing in PERFECTLY this cannot happen in minecraft.
    Also the acting on the players behalf. If YOU were scared in a game you dont react IN GAME as you would in real life, what im saying is you dont play a game and when something jumps you, you dont hit space key and run backwards. You would probably jump back from the monitor and hit you mouse and keyboard away...

    It was later proved quite easily when texture editing became alot more frequent. It became apparent that the player had simply edited their 'Iron door' texture to the front of a player and replaced the eyes with white blocks.

    This wasnt the only thing to happen to the player. His computer apparently 'crashed' after he fell to his death in game and the video (STREAM BTW) went down.
    Also viewers attempting to go onto his website were met by a 404 and then later refreshing opened a page with flashing letters and colours and large text flashing on the screen telling the viewer to 'WAKE UP'

  27. i am not sure if this is related but when i was killing the ender dragon i kept noticing that the endermens faces swapped to steves for a split second, but the eyes were the same and some of them hit the enderdragon and when he had about 1/8 health left the endermen all disappeared, herobrine appeared in the distance and the enderdragon blew up and on top of the portal back it said -"you are welcome" king of ender- and on the credits they said the other has an interest in me, and it crashed.

  38. Hes not real. It started with two or three people starting a rumor that spread really fast. Images and videos on website and youtube can be easy faked. So theres no need to be worried, its just a silly joke thats has been around for long time. As some people have said you are being Trolled.
