* FingerlessHands: The player's hand is a solid cube, yet able to hold and use items. (Although, if playing in first person, items [[InvisibleAnatomy float infront of you]])

** Blocks of dirt. You can't craft it into anything, but it's vital to farming of any kind. It is also excellent for temporary platforms, since you'll never run out of it, and can be used for makeshift barricades if necessary. It can even serve as housing at the start of the game, until you've gathered the necessary supplies to build something more sturdy.

It is also excellent for temporary platforms, since you'll never run out of it, it can be broken down relatively quickly without having to use tools, and can be used for makeshift barricades if necessary.

* AbsurdlySharpBlade: A Diamond Sword enchanted with Sharpness V (or a similar tier) is one of the deadliest things a player has at their disposal, especially in PvP when opposing players are very likely wearing good armor and a little extra oomph is needed to pierce it. ** What's even more deadly is a Diamond Sword with Smite V, albeit only against Undead.

updated mods' energy units
* FantasticMeasurementSystem: Many tech mods make up their own units of measurement for energy.

* FantasticMeasurementSystem: Many tech mods {{GameMod}}s make up their own units of measurement for energy.

** Buildcraft's energy is measured in [=MJs=] which, in this particular case, stand for Minecraft Joules. ** VideoGame/{{Thaumcraft}}'s magical energy is measured in Vis points. Or Aura and Flux points, as of Thaumcraft 3. ** Equivalent Exchange measured items' worth in EMC points. ** All these mods tend to measure time in "ticks", with rates of production or consumption being defined in tooltips as "# per tick". A tick is one pass through the master loop of the game engine that updates everything, the ticking clock of the simulated world itself, and the shortest unit of time that makes any sense.

Or once again in Vis or Centivis in Thaumcraft 4 and 5, but with each point of Vis having a different magical Aspect. ** Blood Magic uses LP (Life points). ** Equivalent Exchange measured and Project E measure items' worth in EMC points.

** More generally, it has been speculated (by [[ZeroPunctuation Yahtzee]] and others) that this is one of the reasons Minecraft is so mind-meldingly addicting compared to other sandbox construction games. In Survival mode, the player has to spend time collecting all the resources themselves in order to build anything, so there's a greater sense of investment in any given project. This attachment is why most players will risk death fighting off Creepers (and griefing players) to defend their creations rather than just scrap the project and start over.

Two examples so you have to indent.
* DeathWorld: ''Minecraft'' can easily be regarded as one. Sure it's pixelated and easily domesticated farm animals seem to be the most of your troubles at first, but once the Sun sets or you start exploring you realize this seemingly serene world is trying to kill you in every way possible. The terrain is littered with random cliffs, deep drops and pits of lava one could easily kill themselves in and random forest fires happen a lot. At night armies of undead zombies and skeleton archers along with kamikaze creepers and gigantic spiders will track you like heat-seeking missiles if they see you while the almost 3 metre tall Endermen will wipe the floor with any unprepared player does as much as glance at them. Meanwhile booby trapped ruins experiment with different ways to creatively end you; from housing nests of huge poisonous spiders to being able to blow you and all the treasure to bits or having tripwires primed to shoot any trespassers. Even seemingly "safe" mobs like the wolf will descend upon you in packs if you hurt any even by accident. It even has the Nether; its version of Hell, home to its own collection of death-toting enemies from huge fire-shooting [[EldritchHorror Eldritch Horrors]] to 2.5 metre tall sword-welding skeletons that will cause you to literally wither away. At least with a Hell you'd think there would be a Heaven right? WRONG. It's just another Hell, where bottom void surrounds the one tiny island and Endermen are everywhere; if that's not enough there's also an almighty [[InstantAwesomeJustAddDragons dragon]] that kills anyone on the island.

** Once you go through all the trouble of farming Endermen for their pearls, farming Blazes to get blaze powder to convert those pearls into Eyes of Ender, using said eyes to find an End Portal (which you then must activate with up to 12 eyes), and defeating the Ender Dragon in The End, you're rewarded with... a [[spoiler:dragon egg]]. It literally does nothing, and is annoying to even collect because it teleports if you try to touch it. But hey, at least you can say you got it. Subverted with the 1.9 update, as killing the Ender Dragon opens up the way to the Ender City section of the End with dungeons, new mobs, and the Elyta Wings, which allow NotQuiteFlight.

* TheFourHorsemen: The 1.9 version introduces skeleton traps. During thunderstorms, you may encounter a skeletal horse. Approaching it causes a lighting to strike it and summon four skeletons with enchanted iron helmets and bows, riding each a skeletal horse (currently the only way they can appear).
