[[folder:Fireplaces in wooden buildings]]
While rule 1 and 2 in ''Minecraft'' are that you shouldn't respectively dig straight down or straight up, rule 3 is about not making fireplaces when there's a lot of wood nearby. Here's why:

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LnjSWPxJxNs This YouTube Video]], where a user tries to explain how to make a fireplace and inadvertently burns down his whole house.
-->'''Narrator''': [[OhCrap Uh oh.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LNODn5c4pZs And yet another victim.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3WjeGIaE244 That's funny too.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3MuM61RKtcs And here]]. Closed captions add to the hilarity, as does the fact that his friend ''told'' him to burn down the house.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SIzbg2Jbr30 This person]] thought he was prepared in case of a fire. He wasn't quite enough.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yUtjEhjxXrk This person]] made a tower of cloth catch on fire... while he was inside it.
--> '''Tropers/{{JohtoKen}}:''' "Uhhhh...this tower-burning experiment did not end well. That is all." ''(respawns)'' "And everything's back to normal; it never happened. Bye bye."
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uy6kjS1oMAk Parodied here]].
* The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0WusXCT2WlQ Biggest Minecraft Fail Ever]], which starts when a user wants to make lava towers near his wooden house. Things escalate quickly.
* [[http://youtu.be/7PXHLIKKOg8?t=9m13s An episode of MMAPGaming]] features the host installing a lava pit in his house for disposing of unwanted items. He tears out his wood walls and replaces them with cobblestone so he won't burn his house down, then adds a low ceiling above the pit so he doesn't accidentally wander into it. The material he uses for the ceiling... is wood, because it looks nice with the rest of the house. The episode ends with him nearly losing his voice when the inevitable happens.
** Guess what happens again [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IAoyB60Mbq0 here]] even using cobblestone due to a small miscalculation?
* [[https://youtube.com/watch?v=rZzepkRwLbc BdoubleO wonders if his fireplace is safe... but lights it anyways.]] The inevitable occurs.
* While all of these examples are accidental, there are some people who just... like the risk. Two guys decided [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2pHJC4drh8 to buy a wooden house above a surface lava lake]], just to see how long it would last before burning down completely. Cue ''a lot'' of putting down fires and repairing holes.
** Much later, while they were building a new house, one of them decided to put a fireplace right on the middle of the wooden house. Using wooden fences to avoid accidentally wandering into it. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhbYf3_KSCU&t=20m53s The inevitable]] took mere ''seconds''.

[[folder:Pranks and traps]]
* [[http://youtu.be/cHRVzfzAWD0?t=1m30s This prank.]] One person complains how mining a gold block disconnects him, tricking a server admin straight into a trap.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QB_FVamYi0c#t=2m30s In this video]], a pseudo-DynamiteCandle prank is pulled on a player.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRv7opeS7FM A little trap]] was set on these two adventurers.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vvdw1seJJpw One player rigged an entire house with hidden TNT,]] then invites his friend to join the server and check out the house. One guess as to what happens.
-->'''Victim: ''' ...Why are you standing over there?
-->'''Pranker: '''I'm... [[BlatantLies I'm looking for food.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTY5yAnHMOI One guy, in revenge for having his mine flooded]], sets up a trap where two people got trapped inside a prison, and the only way out was jumping off. Need we mention that this prison is about 9000 feet in the air?
* The 1.4 update for the official release gives us Invisbility Potions. [[HilarityEnsues Let the trolling commence,]] [[WebVideo/GameChap I say!]]
** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hywRpV3AXR0 An example.]] Also MMAP gaming.
* The absolutely epic {{Troll}} Mojang pulled off with the April Fools Day prank; Minecraft 2.0, featuring sensitive chickens that don't like being looked at, Redstone Bugs(literal ones, not glitches), and a stab at the people who want realism in the game via torches not lasting forever. A friendly pink Wither was included that invoked TastesLikeDiabetes and farm animals could be fed until they exploded, getting fatter and fatter as you went on. Sadly, the page containing the download was taken down on April 2nd.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5H2_1ZjFuOU This poor player]] has a lot of trouble with creepers. It doesn't help that his friends like to disguise themselves as creepers to shock and traumatize him, and just when he thinks he's figured out which is which...
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9_-MrxVmjk4&feature=related These SMP players]] tried to grief a griefer by encasing his house in a glass sphere and filling it with lava. [[OhCrap Then it began to leak]], and what results could be a scene from a typical disaster movie.
-->"We've created the Sun."

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3NQVMbhyZzg That's not far enough! NOWHERE is far enough! We are ALL GOING TO DIE!]]

[[folder:Let's Players]]
* An {{L|etsPlay}}Per by the name of bananapielord had uploaded his Minecraft world for his fans to edit as they please, and spent the next few videos showcasing the worlds they sent back. The third world in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nOEb99_U9Pc&feature=player_detailpage#t=7m20s this video]], showcased seven minutes in, has some [[MadeOfExplodium interesting]] changes made to his house. Hilarity Ensues when he accidentally sets off a block of TNT.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=64Rjac8T45Y#t=13m58s These two]] adventurers at the 14:00 point, find out that they don't make it in home in time, so they both build makeshift shelters, leading to a funny InactionSequence where they discover that one player lacks cobblestone to smelt glass in a furnace and the other finds out that he lacks sand so he can't make glass either. They find their own solutions to see outside. After a daybreak, they visit each other's "houses".
* [[http://www.youtube.com/user/HaatFilms The Hatventurers]] give us many moments of funny minecraft antics.

[[folder:Glitches and Bugs]]
* [[GoodBadBugs A bug,]] [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks now fixed,]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bI_5Bm4iDNo would enable you to ride pigs on ice really fast.]] [[HilarityEnsues Try not to giggle.]]
* A hilarious glitch that makes you move super fast when the time is moved forward to compensate for how long it's "been." [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_0I3pF-JYuA You have to see it to understand.]]

* Wolves attack Skeletons. Dogs like to eat bones.
* The Beta 1.2 update allows players to dye wool blocks different colors. The funny thing is that you can also do this to living sheep, resulting in a swarm of sheep in outlandish colorations.
** Even better, when you shear the sheep, and the wool grows back, it's still the same color as the dye.
* Get into water while a dog follows you. When you get out, you can see the dog shaking off the water as soon as he stops!
* 1.9 introduces Elytra Wings, which allows Minecraft players to [[NotQuiteFlight glide]]. Equip them on a ground-based mob and knock them off the edge. Proceed to watch as they soar uncontrollably into the distance (due to their AI [[ArtificialStupidity not being programmed with gliders in mind]]).

* ''Minecraft'' hit one million sales. Drunk Notch, karaoke, and a nerf gun followed.
* ''Minecraft'' [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pRZQiCCIqiE&feature=player_embedded#! 1.2 trailer]]:
-->(while falling) "I heard that you can build twice as high in Minecraft now"
--> "Oh really, that's interesAAAAAAAHHH"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rF9xMNuAfwE Another YouTube video]], this time a recording of someone's live stream where he was just wrapping up for the session. The music just perfects the overall mood. [[spoiler:[[OhCrap WHAT THE SHIT-]]*dies*]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L_S_7DRfCow And the sequel, set to "Don't Stop Believin'".]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ULA8PvW750U Creeper juice]]!
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3Ci09GwAmg&feature=player_embedded It's a rap video (maybe)... until.. well, check it out for yourself.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kty4c4Ns0aQ&feature=related A much less disturbing version of the video above.]]
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMuGqClrT00 "Chickens fucking everywhere!"]]. Someone finds out the properties of eggs when thrown at stuff (ie, they can spawn 1-4 chickens), so he and a bunch of friends mess with it, but they soon realise they've woken a sleeping giant here. Eventually the server overloads, especially when he tries something drastic.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P45gWMk97v8 This entire video]]. Filled with plenty of Angrish, pained cries of "[[GoshDarnItToHeck WHAT THE FRICK]]", and failed attempts to ride a minecart, this stream has something for everyone!
* Most items that involve the day/night cycle or direction start to bug out when you enter the Nether. However, the silliest case of this would have to be wood-and-wool beds ''exploding violently'' when one attempts to use them.
* The Beta 1.6.6 patch notes. It has some nice tweaks, nothing too major... Wait, [[UrbanLegendOfZelda "Removed Herobrine"]]? [[FlatWhat What]].
** That's been in every patch for some time. Either Notch still thinks it's hilarious, or he's trying to do [[StreisandEffect damage control]] on the persistence of the meme.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nO-PB6zOgEo Blowing up an island.]] What makes it funny is the player's over-the-top reactions.
** He also laughs maniacally.
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1gFCdlmUbQ Minecraft's lava physics are almost Wil E. Coyote-ish.]] Gives you ''exactly'' the right amount of time to regret what you have done.
--> "[[OhCrap Oh shnap!]] [[spoiler:'''[[BigNo OHHH NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!]] [[YetAnotherStupidDeath IT BURNS, THE PRECIOUS!]] ''[[FamousLastWords IT BURNS, THE PRECIOUS!]]''''']]"
** Another video from the same guy, the [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ydm4isLEpec Suicide Chicken]]. Ten seconds of a chicken, and a full minute of him laughing.
* A guy who plays Minecraft and shows off mods is constantly informed of things he appears to be doing wrong, such as [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjfkYsFpx34 not using a pickaxe on a certain boss in the Aether mod]], [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kV9lCeoV0Gc not using gold weapons to kill werewolves from the Mo'Creatures mod]], or [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qav2X4nZKE0 not using redstone repeaters for fireworks shows]]. [[SarcasmMode He seemed to take it rather well.]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5NylmdC_uEM But whatever you do, do not break the rules on his watch.]]
** This guy now has his own trope page, right [[UberHaxorNova here.]]
* Meta Moment : Bethesda threaten to sue Notch for an upcoming game called ''VideoGame/{{Scrolls}}'' for "stealing?" the name from Franchise/TheElderScrolls. Notch's proposal? [[http://notch.tumblr.com/post/9038258448/hey-bethesda-lets-settle-this A Trial-by-(Quake)-champion to settle this.]] Some people are waiting to see if it will work.
*** For those curious, the suit ended in not only a refusal, but Notch won the round, with the court ruling that ''VideoGame/{{Scrolls}}'' was not likely to be mistaken for the full title of The Elder Scrolls.
* One word. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G2clZL-9AIM BUNNIES]].
** While that video was a mod from years ago, as of September 2014, Rabbits are in the official game.
*** And [[Film/MontyPythonAndTheHolyGrail the killer rabbit.]]
* It is now possible, in creative, to latch onto animals with a fishing rod, fly up to a very great height and yank them, thus causing them to go flying for miles. It never gets old.
* Monster Spawners usually only create boring zombies or skeletons, but through hacking, you could get anything from [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJqOm83RGS0 pigs]] to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KYNjZ467dUQ Endermen]]. [[HilarityEnsues Hilarity was sure to ensue]].

** Heck, the entirety of "Enderman Roomate", especially "What the-".
** Parts 31, 32, and 33 of his ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' videos are a textbook example of FromBadToWorse. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WLbvaaL_DGU in Part 31]], Toby drowns in the water near his house when he forgets to surface for air. Then, because his bed was obstructed, he doesn't respawn in his house and has to find where he died, a problem made worse by his NoSenseOfDirection. In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O1gT-5Pbdfg Part 32]], Toby is forced to turn the game to peaceful mode as he dives for his items. Having spent half the video looking for his items, he goes off to bed... [[BrickJoke and dies because it was obstructed]], losing his items and being teleported away from his house ''again''. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=08mlZlasET4 Part 33]] is entirely comprised of him trying to find his house.

* Version 1.2 introduces something that Creepers are afraid of: [[spoiler: Cats]]. No, really. Tame a few and watch Creepers avoid you like the plague.

* Team Avolition, a griefing team, was challenged to see how much griefing they could perform on the Doridian server before getting caught. Stealing 3,500 diamonds, burning down the fabled city, and annoying the crud out of an admin who has no ban powers are the LEAST of their accomplishments. Doubles as a CrowningMomentOfAwesome that they were able to pull this off in the first place.
** Their jihad against the Rice-Think server was also glorious. The owner and his moderators started a smear campaign on both their website and Team AVO's forums, claiming that they had "won" and that they would "never be defeated." When their server went public, Team AVO found out that no attempt was made to hide or protect anything of value, and that the server's moderation team had the combined mental acuity of an acorn. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iggyrEG_s9A&feature=plcp Gather round and hear the tale of the dumbest admin who ever lived.]]

* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=Rot-pQVWWzc "Sometimes it's hard to be a God"]], featuring the Clay Mod, full of Literal Metaphors (such as the world being named "The Heavens and the Earth"), faux-epic moments (such as green and blue soldiers parachuting in on ''feathers''), and ultimately culminating in [[spoiler: God just deciding to ''delete'' "The Heavens and the Earth"]].
* [=RubberRoss=]'s [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BwUC53VvY-M Derpcraft.]] What's even funnier is that the cartoon was based on his initial reactions.
* Alekidsonic's [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3BGmbgiftLg Minecraft shorts.]] It's also a bit of a TakeThat to people who start playing Minecraft for the very first time.
* The [[Series/DoctorWho Weeping Angel mod]], when [[http://youtu.be/Xj446LPEy7E spotlighted by the Yogscast]], has one of the Angels going into Simon's house, and he doesn't have a pickaxe to destroy it with. How is this solved? By digging a hole in the floor, getting the Angel to fall into it... and just putting floor blocks over it. There's now a Weeping Angel trapped under the floorboards. ''Problem solved''. When he realizes he's got no way to leave the house surrounded by Angels without dying and respawning in the house, he deletes the world to solve the problem.
* After 34 minutes of fail in the 404 challenge, these two adventurers decide to give it one last try and make a "pimp room". [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ba0ixdTXQIs&t=34m50s The result]] is...well, just watch.
* A Youtuber by the name of [[http://www.youtube.com/user/donut223isme donut223isme]] made a series called "[[GameMod Weeping]] [[Series/DoctorWho Angels]] to the [[FinalDungeon The End]]" where he [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin plays the game all the way through with the Weeping Angels mod]]. In episode 7, he accidentally falls down a chasm and tries to climb back up. After making it to a landing, he places a torch to see his immediate area. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgR3bUMPzls&t=13m20s He reacts to what he sees accordingly]].
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JgR3bUMPzls&t=12m50s His reaction]] to the fall is even better.
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=odj0s3gXa4Y&t=10m55s He does it again in episode 9]].

* A Spanish [=LPer=], while on Hardcore mode, tried to ensure his small house was safe, using a gate made of pistons and an alarm made of notes. The idea of using just an iron door apparently didn't cross his mind. The massive structure for the machinery took a lot of space, being several times bigger than ''the house itself''. It was so poorly designed that it prevented him from enlarging the house, as it was surrounded on all its sides by the machinery. Not to mention that [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F2CCOihAsrQ&t=8m33s it took him]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W-fy91zbelc&t=17m33s quite]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVbPlkDDtcA&t=9m44s some]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCnuwVOWj3w&t=2m06s time.]] The funny part? All this didn't help him when a creeper entered his house. Just see his HeroicBSOD [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OCnuwVOWj3w&t=5m26s here.]] The worst part? The creeper entered through the structure he had created to build the alarm. He could have avoided it if he hadn't built it in the first place.
** The same [=LPer=] tried to get some steaks by killing some cows with fire. Instead of using flint and steel like anyone else would have done, this [=LPer=] tried it with ''lava''. Unfortunately for him, when trying to get back the lava after burning the first cow, a misclick gave him a bucket of milk [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZltbdCkJSUE&t=1m45s and a very hot death.]]
** The same [=LPer=] built a witch farm in his survival series, but instead of lighting the area to prevent enemy spawning outside the farm, he went for the quickest solution, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=080CO8Wb5Kw&t=42m10s to built a huge tower]]. He eventually came to regret his decision, as some chapters later, he suffered the consequences. He had to spent an entire chapter to kill more than 200 zombies that had spawned in the surrounding area. The fight reached its climax in a cave where [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HEynQohG-K4&t=13m34s more than 160 zombies were lurking]]. To add more laughs, for some unknown reason, every single zombie happened to be [[ImprobableWeaponUser wielding an egg]].
* Another Spanish [=LPer=], also on Hardcore mode, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_ZNUIBYwBBk&t=25m59s entered the Nether for the first time]], only to discover that he had spawned on the top of a tower-like hill with no visible way to get down safely and, what's worse, ''[[OhCrap some lava pillars were falling down towards him]]''.

* Spawning on a tiny island far, far, FAR away from any sort of mainland, and only having a small tree to work with is as fun as having a diamond pick shoved up your nose. Proceeding to turn all of the wood into sticks and not getting a sapling, however, is funny once your mind registers what you just did.

[[spoiler:Almost every technological object not found in Minecraft are made up of villagers.]]
** It also has a sequel, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtwz81uG47k Villager News 2]]. [[spoiler:[[FailedASpotCheck How the heck did the newscaster not notice the alien spaceship behind him?]]]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dzudQVAVVQ0 Testificate News]], a extra for the aforementioned Villager News 2, addresses the problem [[spoiler:by showing various villagers parodying various people trying to stop the spaceship. [[ForegoneConclusion It doesn't work.]] And then the ''newscaster'' gets sucked into the spaceship...]]
* The Syndicate project in collaboration with Element Animation and Roomie did a parody of the original Pokémon theme music. It is both hilarious and [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9BG6tRQf7aM the most ''awesome'' thing imaginable.]]
* One youtuber was doing a LetsPlay of his own mod pack for the game, including ''Film/TheLionKing'' mod. At the end of the mod, he goes to the Upendi dimension, which is supposed to be a utopia like location free of hostile mobs. Between that episode (were he was enjoying the dimension once he got there) and the next, the Cubebot mod glitched and [[http://youtu.be/SYVuRpWT4-w the next episode]] begins with Upendi [[ZombieApocalypse overun by a gigantic swarm of]] [[DemonicSpiders Zombie Cubebots]] (which have been making his life hell since the update introducing them). He's forced to go to creative and then gleefully sets it to day so he can watch them burst into flames and die in the sunlight.
** On another episode, a creeper somehow gets into his house and blows up, his reaction is hilarious. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31I3bqN_Wfo]]
* Whenever skeletons shoot each other. They'll stop pursuing you, turn to whoever shot them, and return the favor. A duel to the death will then commence.
** Better yet, enclose them and take bets. It's cockfighting [-WITH SKELETONS!-]
** It's even worse with witches. All it takes is one stray splash potion and suddenly every witch in the vicinity will turn on each other. And none of them will die because they heal themselves faster than they can inflict debuffs and damage. It's quite a sight to behold, but if you get caught in the crossfire, your death is assured.
** Tricking a skeleton into killing a Creeper will result in an EasterEgg in which the Creeper drops a music disc upon being killed.
* Cows' legs when they're running. RL cows legs don't bend that way!
* [[https://mojang.com/2015/10/minecraft-snapshot-15w41b/ Dinnerbone's summary]] of snapshot 15w41 sounds like a description of an action film scene.
-->''This week’s snapshot brings you the ability to [[SoftGlass smash out of the window]] of a high tower building, fly past the bad guys who are all [[ImperialStormtrooperMarksmanshipAcademy shooting you with surprisingly bad accuracy]], swoop down and land flawlessly into a strategically placed boat and then paddle away at moderately high speeds with the stolen prize pig in the back.\\
I’m not really sure what it all means, though.''
