* AccidentalAesop: Pointed out by one review. You start in a wonderful world. After some time, you look back and realize you have destroyed a large patch of nature and terraformed ground just to make that mega-building of yours. What you once fell in love with is now gone because of your megalomania.

* AnticlimaxBoss: The Ender Dragon. By the time you are able to reach The End, you'll likely be more than strong enough to beat it. Diamond armor nullifies almost all the damage the boss can deal, the crystals that heal it are easy enough to destroy (especially if you brought a bow and enough arrows to waste some), and the boss itself isn't terribly difficult to dodge. In fact, the bigger threat is the absolutely ''massive'' army of Endermen that wander around the field, which you'll spend half of the fight trying to avoid pissing off accidentally. The biggest annoyance while fighting it is getting it to sit still long enough for a decent hit.
** Apparently, the "diamond armor negating Enderdragon damage" is a bug.
** Some players actually consider the armour to be irrelevant- a pumpkin and a bow is all they take to fight the dragon.
* AuthorsSavingThrow: When Dinnerbone unveiled splash potions having lingering clouds, the PvP enthusiasts started complaining about potion-centered PvP being RuinedForever. However, it was found that this was actually a design for a new throwable "lingering" type potion.

** Some fans believe potions should be made stackable so you could carry around more potions without them taking up too much space in your inventory. Any fans who think otherwise say that this'll make them [[GameBreaker over-powered]] .

** The ''LetsPlay/MindcrackServer'' guys demonstrate this Trope very clearly with their Ultimate Hardcore PVP series. In the beginning, the competitors ALWAYS went looking for a full set of Iron Armour and a bow and arrows before going hunting for prey; if they could find any diamonds it was a great bonus but too rare to be counted upon. As the series evolved and became more refined, certain (ever more convoluted) tactics became a necessity; for example, prior to LetsPlay/EthosLab 's pioneering of getting one during a Free-For-All match, an Enchanting Table was an expensive and tricky luxury even in the team games. Nowadays, it's virtually mandatory if you want to make it to the top 5, let alone win the series. In the same vein, virtually no one risks 'hunting' for other Players in the first 3 or 4 episodes despite the advantage of surprise, and going to the Nether is usually seen as far, far too risky despite the rewards it offers.

** Ghasts. They only appear in the Nether but they will make your time there constantly dangerous. They can fly and will usually float out of range of your swords, usually making them only vulnerable to arrows. They also constantly shoot fireballs at extremely long range that explode on contact, causing major damage unless you are wearing armor, as well as leaving holes and fires in the netherrack.
*** Also, they don't follow you, so you can't lure them into traps, and will just keep shooting at you.

** The Endermen used to be pushovers. Now, they're an absolute nightmare. Zombies, skeletons and spiders become easy to take care of once you have some decent iron armor, a sword and a bow, and even creepers can be sniped with impunity if you catch them at a distance. But you're not going to dispatch an Enderman with anything other than grit and determination. They will only attack you if you so much as ''look at them'', and once they start [[ImplacableMan they won't ever stop]]. Even worse, they can teleport, making them immune to arrows, hard to hit with swords and very likely to outpace you if you start running away.
*** Most of their danger can be nullified by [[WeaksauceWeakness ordinary water]], though. They are damaged by water and instantly teleport away to avoid it, even forgetting that they were attacking you.

They've started fixing them now, much to the dismay of players who can now drown in a small waterfall.

** Another glitch allowed players to speed up minecarts by placing another on a separate track and running past each other. The booster cart glitch, which allowed minecarts to speed up considerably, had an entire subway system founded on it. Again, the creators recognized that this bug was much more popular than the legitimate Powered Minecarts, which led to the official introduction of Powered Rails before the glitch was removed. Notch, one of the game developers, didn't get rid of them in a timely fashion, but added in a replacement feature (powered rails) that works without any glitches, albeit differently. He then proceeded to remove the glitch boosters in the next patch, along with boat elevators and rapid-ascent water ladders, to the dismay of the community.
*** In an attempt to make powered minecarts work again, the glitch (albeit weaker, but still useful) was reintroduced. Notch and Jeb just can't win.

** What else is good with water? Boats? The feature that's really hard to control and breaks into a smaller fraction of the pieces needed to make it at the drop of a hat? The annoying vehicle that glitches out and ejects you several blocks away from where you should be upon dismounting? Actually they are pretty good. Mojang finally heard the pleas of the fanbase and started fixing boats in Minecraft 1.9. Now they are nowhere near as annoying. But one snapshot (specifically 16w04a) went so far as to accidentally make boats rideable on land - at the ''exact speed'' with which they would travel in water. That's right. As of that snapshot, Minecraft boats act almost exactly like Minecraft cars!
*** Sadly the glitch has been fixed as of the latest snapshot.

** When Mojang revealed that Minecraft ''wouldn't'' be coming to Nintendo platforms, it didn't look pretty. It's possible this is because it's written in Java, but Notch's bashing of the Wii U didn't help.
*** And then VideoGame/MinecraftStoryMode was confirmed to release on the Wii U. Fans of the Wii U were not pleased, but some hope that it means that Minecraft itself may see a release on the platform.
*** Fortunately, a Wii U version was finally confirmed, and will be releasing on December 17th.

** "On a Rail." The goal: "travel 1,000 meters by minecart from your starting point". It requires obscene amounts of materials, and it has to be 1000 blocks away ''on a straight line''. It's not ''that'' hard, but the engineering and resources required are insane. One minecart costs 5 Iron Ingots. 16 meters worth of minecart tracks is 6 Iron Ingots. That's ''378'' Iron Ingots, right there. If you find abandoned mine shafts, however, the abandoned tracks can be collected for no cost. Of course, the carts won't travel forever, so you'll need boosters. That's 6 Gold Ingots and one Redstone for 6 rails. Then there's the items needed to activate the rails, which is more resources. And after all of that, you have to build the whole track, which involves lots of excavation, clearing, placing, and testing the whole thing to make sure it actually works. But on the bright side, as long as the track is still active, it'll work if the achievement happens to be cleared. Thankfully, in the Xbox 360 version, the distance requirement is halved. PC players can build in Creative mode.
*** What really hurts, though, is that every minor game update tends to wipe your achievements. Hope you saved that world with the 1000 meter track.

Its distorted shape and downright terrifying face, as well as the fact that it ''sneaks onto you with a SSSS sound followed by your death'' - and probably a heart attack - make it one of the most original and frightening enemies in modern videogaming history.

** Some enjoy the game running in Java because of compatibility, but others dislike it because even gaming rigs have trouble getting the game to look as pretty and smooth as possible.

** The announcement of [[TooAwesomeToUse enchanted golden apples]] being nerfed in 1.9. Fans in favor of this say that this is a good thing, because the methods of killing a player under its effects (spamming attacks and the Sharpness enchantment) have been nerfed, making the enchanted golden apple a true GameBreaker. Those against it argue that it takes far too much effort to either find the 72 gold ores required or set up a Zombie Pigman farm in the Nether and killing more than a thousand Pigmen for the apple to give less than its current effects, as well as the achievement for crafting one being called ''[[PurposelyOverpowered Overpowered]]''. Some critics of the nerf would've much rather taken a nerf to gold farms, a change that the developers didn't want to make.

** The Wii U version of Minecraft finally releasing on December 17th. Some Nintendo fans think it's too late, while others think it's better late than never.

** One of the later 1.9 snapshots partially reverted the nerf to "spam-clicking", so that attacking rapidly would no longer do ScratchDamage. Good news for combat for pros and noobs alike, or a return to brainless flailing around?



** After beetroot was introduced to the Pocket Edition, a picture of Jeb in-game in the PC version was found, but it turned out to be fake. A fan asked if beetroot was ever going to be in PC, and Jeb said it wouldn't. Apparently, the dev team didn't get the memo, because beetroot's going to be in 1.9.

** Dinnerbone tweeted a [[https://gfycat.com/ShowyCoarseAvians GIF]] of splash potions having an area-of-affect cloud instead of the usual single burst, along with the sentence "Splash potions are fairly useless, right?". The PvP enthusiasts of the fandom wasted no time in insulting him for his "ignorance" of how splash potions were a mainstay on some servers, and now potion-based PvP is [[RuinedForever absolutely broken]].
** One of the 1.9 snapshots adds an attack power mechanic, where if you rapidly click, your attacks won't be as effective. The fans say that this will alleviate the problem of "spam-clicking"... in a way that kills fast-paced PvP. They also say it'll push PvPers away from Minecraft, and that the update called the "Combat Update" will ironically be the one that [[RuinedForever that ruins combat forever]]. However, some are hopeful that this change will justify the need for dual-wielding weapons, a feature many wanted and were upset wouldn't be in the update.

** A lot of the bigger servers rely heavily on commands, but not all of them use the same commands. Okay, so you would type in /help so you'd know what you can and can't do, right? Well, some servers ''don't give /help permissions to visitors''. That's right, you need commands to play on the server, but [[GuideDangIt you're not allowed to know what they are]]!

* BrokenBase: Any suggested feature or change will RUIN THE GAME FOREVER. Almost every update breaks the fan base into smaller and smaller pieces.

* BrokenBase: Any suggested feature or change will RUIN THE GAME FOREVER. Unfortunately Minecraft is about as good at causing conflict as a harmless [[Literature/TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy Babelfish]], despite destroying many barriers of communication between human beings. Almost every update somehow breaks the fan base into smaller and smaller pieces.

** What else is good with water? Boats? The feature that's really hard to control and breaks into a smaller fraction of the pieces needed to make it? Mojang finally heard the pleas of the fanbase and started fixing boats in Minecraft 1.9. But one snapshot (specifically 16w04a) went so far as to accidentally make boats rideable on land - at the ''exact speed'' with which they would travel in water. That's right. As of that snapshot, Minecraft boats act almost exactly like Minecraft cars!

** What else is good with water? Boats? The feature that's really hard to control and breaks into a smaller fraction of the pieces needed to make it at the drop of a hat? The annoying vehicle that glitches out and ejects you several blocks away from where you should be upon dismounting? Actually they are pretty good. Mojang finally heard the pleas of the fanbase and started fixing boats in Minecraft 1.9. Now they are nowhere near as annoying. But one snapshot (specifically 16w04a) went so far as to accidentally make boats rideable on land - at the ''exact speed'' with which they would travel in water. That's right.
