** 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.

** Prior to patch 1.8, if you went an extremely-far distance in your Minecraft world (12,550,820 in-game meters, or roughly 820 hours of straight walking) you would run across a place called the Far Lands, where the terrain would suddenly become severely distorted and laggy due to a glitch in the way in-game worlds were generated. Originally, Notch said he liked the idea of a mysterious place so instead of fixing it, he kept it in. But in patch 1.8, he accidentally fixed whatever it was in the world generation process that created the trademark appearance of Far Lands. Currently, the world simply presents you with an invisible barrier, and Notch has not yet given any word on whether or not the Far Lands will return.

Since by the twelfth update of the official release they still haven't returned in the computer and console versions, it's quite unlikely the Far Lands will return.ever return outside of Pocket Edition.



* UrbanLegendOfZelda: The entity known as "HIM" or "Herobrine", the supposed dead brother of the game's creator, known for creating strange objects and being elusive, a white-eyed version of the default player skin who would stalk the player from a distance, a la [[Franchise/TheSlenderManMythos Slender Man]]. WordOfGod has jossed the rumor, but the creators like to poke fun at it: almost every update has a line that says "removed Herobrine" or something similar. On top of this, in a multiplayer server, if a player is killed by an arrow shot from a dispenser, the message that displays the cause of death is said to be from Herobrine. Sometimes you may look into a mod of a game, or even a game itslf, and will find the log referencing to a Herobrine of sorts.
** Notch, creator of Minecraft, has now removed Herobrine from the game several times now (or so the changelog says) but the rumor still will not die. Which makes one realize that no matter what the Dev Team does, Herobrine keeps coming back. Or is it Herobrine who refuses to stay gone?
** Herobrine exists... as part of many of the over nine thousand mods made by the community.
** Rendering spasms gives the impression that Herobrine's face appeared on the screen. It is awfully uncomfortable to witness that happen.

** Surprisingly averted in one high profile case. After fans [=DDoSed=] the multiplayer servers (because they wanted Notch to release a Minecraft update, no less), they're pretty damn lucky Notch didn't just give them the middle finger and took them down permanently. He was also surprisingly okay with update 1.8 being leaked early, as it gave the fans a chance to find bugs so that they could be fixed before the official release. In fact, ever since that leak, Mojang ''themselves'' have been regularly leaking the updates early.

** ''Minecraft'' has been hit '''hard''' by this. Up until Beta 1.1's release at the end of 2010, updates came out every few days. Then, they slipped to every month. Then, starting with Beta 1.8, they came out every two months. Then, they started having no schedule, coming out every few months, with the gaps ranging from 2-5. Then, it was ''10 months'' between 1.7 (October 2013) and 1.8 (September 2014), then '''''18''''' months between 1.8 and 1.9 (February 2016)! Thankfully inverted with the update with 1.10, releasing a mere four months later (June 2016) and continued with 1.11 five months after that. This can be justified by how updates have added much more in each one.
** ''Minecraft'''s development delay for 1.8 didn't affect the [[GameMod modding community]] much, instead allowing 1.7 modpacks to grow up very well thanks to freshly introduced ease of making massive [[note]]by which is meant [[UpToEleven beyond ''FTB Monster'' massive]], like the DNS Techpack and others[[/note]] modpacks thanks to the new ID name system, whose extensive Forge use [[AntiFrustrationFeatures marked the end of block and item ID conflicts]]. When 1.8 came out, Forge was quick to update, but most mods ended up stagnating due to the rendering overhaul. Slowly, modpack creators and modders have warmed up to the new versions, moreso considering that 1.9 and 1.10 ended up staying surprisingly compatible with 1.8, but 1.7.10 (the last sub-release of 1.7) is still the favorite by far with many mods keeping themselves there, including the ubiquitious and ever-beloved Thermal Expansion/Foundation/Dynamics series of mods by Team [=CoFH=], to the point that many mods, be it dedicated ones like Et Futurum as the only content or others like the decorative mod ''Chisel'' and magic mod ''Videogame/{{Botania}}'' as side-features, [[SerialEscalation include features from later versions of the game to make up for the lack of mod porting]].

** [[WordOfGod Mojang]] has confirmed that the character [[https://mojang.com/2015/04/new-skins-achievements-music/ Alex is a female]], by constantly referring to her to with feminine pronouns. Steve has been confirmed to be a male by the context of the sentence, [[OccamsRazor though that should]] [[FanDumb have been obvious]].
--> "(...) But jolly old Steve doesn’t really represent the diversity of our playerbase. For that reason, we’re giving all players opportunity to play with an Alex skin instead. She brings thinner arms, redder hair, and a ponytail; she actually looks a bit like Jens from certain angles." - Owen Hill from Mojang

[[http://www.minecraft.net/merch.jsp Store here.]]]] The T-shirts are just the tip of the iceberg made of stuff like stickers, posters, plushies, foam replicas of in-game items, handbooks, novels, figurines and even Franchise/{{LEGO}} construction sets.

* UnintentionalPeriodPiece: ''Minecraft'' is a pretty timeless game... except for those {{tagline}}s on the title screen which frequently contain references to memes that were popular during the development of a given version. Media referencing ''Minecraft'' have it even worse though, as the game itself is continously developed by Mojang who keep adding completely new elements to the game world, making those T-shirts showing chibified mobs quite dated with their lack of new ones.
