** Golden armor is often called "[[LetsPlay/SkyDoesMinecraft butter]] armor" due to its relative fragility and yellow color.
*** There is [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojkSkhSyDDM a mod]] that renames all gold objects to "butter". And you can actually ''eat'' them.
** Villagers are often called "[[WesternAnimation/SpongebobSquarepants Squidwards]]" or "Testificates". The former because their [[GagNose bulbous noses]] and low-pitch voices resemble the character of the same name and the latter because of a name tag that appeared over them in beta tests.
*** They're also referred to in [[ImageBoards some circles]] as jews because of their big noses and status as merchants.

* GenrePopularizer: Is very much like ''VideoGame/{{Doom}}'' in that while it was not the first sandbox cube building game, it was the first to make it big and inspire numerous clones and 'clones'.



* LetsPlay:
** Loads and loads of them, such as [[Machinima/YogscastMinecraftSeries the Yogscast]], LetsPlay/{{Kurtjmac}}, WebVideo/GameChap, LetsPlay/SkyDoesMinecraft, and Creator/AchievementHunter's ''[[LetsPlay/AchievementHunterMinecraftSeries Let's Play Minecraft]]'' among many others.

* SleeperHit: ''Minecraft'', initially a one-man project, gained a ton of press by word-of-mouth alone, and is still receiving steady sales even past its beta release. The game slowly and slowly gained popularity with almost no advertising. It helped that it was available since the very early versions.
** The Xbox 360 edition ended up being one of the most popular games on the system.
* TeasingCreator / TheWalrusWasPaul: Ever since Mojang found out about the UrbanLegendOfZelda Herobrine, every single update changelog has included a line stating "Removed Herobrine". WordOfGod on the topic consists mostly of flat out stating that there's no Herobrine and that the entries were deliberately put there to toy with the community but also includes a good bit of SuspiciouslySpecificDenial, refusal to comment, and [[FlipFlopOfGod declaration that everything you've heard is true]] (depending on who at Mojang you ask, what day it is, the current status of the tide, and whether or not Herobrine is currently behind them).
