''Minecraft: The N00b Adventures'' is a WebAnimation series by [[http://www.youtube.com/user/falconer02 falconer02]] set in the popular ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' video game. It's hosted on Website/YouTube via Machinima, as well as Newgrounds.

The story revolves around three newbie Minecraft players who join a server one day, only to find it oppressed by the tyrannical Gaylord_Steambath. They resolve to fight him and his griefing ways, but must first meet powerful allies, learn what happened to the server, and, you know, learn the ropes of the game.

----
!!Tropes present in Minecraft TNA include:
* AffectionateParody: Of both online gaming on {{Videogame/Minecraft}} and of online gaming in general.
* AmbiguouslyGay: Fittingly, Gaylord_Steambath.
* [[{{Main/Anticlimax}} Anti-Climax]]: [[spoiler:Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX spends several episodes hunting down N00bly's party, once he does finally manage to catch them, he accidentally falls on lava and dies]].
* AntiHero: As he is introduced, it certainly seems Milky_Dad is going to be this. [[spoiler:[[{{Main/Face Heel Turn}} But then again...]]]]
* ApocalypticLog: The journals of Boner's previous owner. [[Main/UnfortunateNames That's... the name of the horse]].
* ArtShift: During [[spoiler: Gaylord and Noobly's battle in part 28]], the video abruptly switches to footage of two Minecraft players with skins based on the characters slapping each other around.
* BackFromTheDead: [[spoiler:After Lord_Server returned to power, he removed the [[Main/FinalDeath hardcore]] setting from the server, ensuring that ''every'' dead character from the series qualifies as this.]]
* {{Main/Beat Them at Their Own Game}}: N00bly and co. eventually realize that they, as a trio of newbie Minecraft players on a hardcore server, can't really do much to take down Gaylord, said server's administrator, for good. Instead, what they decide to do is to "out-grief" and "out-troll" Gaylord in the hopes that he ragequits.
* BecauseYouWereNiceToMe: Uglina the Witch saves the heroes from the Wither because, unlike Milky_Dad, they were nice to her and gave her a name.
* TheBigGuy: Fart Garfunkel, not because he is physically stronger, though. Instead, he is this mainly because of his blood knight tendencies discussed bellow.
* BloodierAndGorier: The series as a whole is this to Minecraft. While the original game only ever has BloodlessCarnage, with all hostile mobs and defeated players disappearing into puffs of smoke, here Zombies, Skeletons, and Spiders get dismembered, decapitated, and stabbed with their corpses being left behind. Spurts of blood can also be seen on occasion coming from both injured mobs and other players.
* BloodKnight: Out of the rest of the trio, Fart Garfunkel is the one who is the most eager to fight. He also keeps going on about how he wishes he could get a shotgun in Minecraft.
* BookEnds: [[spoiler: Near the end of the last episode, Noobly says that the newly-repaired server is "so blocky, so cool", which was the title of the first episode.]]
* BrickJoke: [[spoiler: After Gaylord_Steambath gets banned, Lord_Server says the only thing left to do is to add some sweet plugins. At the end of the episode, the server gets abruptly shut off, presumably to do just that.]]
* ButNowIMustGo: [[spoiler:Yoda_Morpheus, at the end of his debut. Aparently because he got grounded from playing too much Minecraft, oh well...]]
* CompanionCube: "Irene" is this to Milky_Dad. [[spoiler:Which is why, after Milky_Dad betrays N00bly & co, Fart Garfunkel, who just barely survived the former's betrayal, wants to make sure that said Irene, which is a sword, by the way, is going to be used in a [[{{Main/Ass Shove}} certain, very specific]] way against Milky_Dad]]
* CoolBike: Fart mentions in the first episode that he wishes he could get one.
-->'''Fart:'''You know what this game needs? Motorcycles! Yirrrr!
* DeathTrap: Gaylord certainly seems to be fond of these.
* {{Main/Delusions of Eloquence}}: Case and point: Gaylord.
* DirtyCoward: Gaylord will quickly teleport himself or his enemies away whenever he's on the losing end.
* DisneyVillainDeath: [[spoiler: Gaylord_Steambath blows up a part of a nether fortress he was in and promptly falls into lava. [[SlowMotionFall All in glorious slo-mo.]] Of course, because he's admin, it doesn't do him in for good.]]
* DiskOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:The Ender Dragon.]]
* TheDragon: [[spoiler:Milky_Dad, later in the series.]]
* TheExile: Pretty much ''everyone'' left on the server, mainly because Gaylord has the habit of trapping everyone he didn't kill in [[{{Main/Hell}} the Nether]].
* FaceHeelTurn: [[spoiler:In exchange for his survival, Milky_Dad makes a deal with Gaylord_Steambath and becomes his right-hand man.]]
* FalseFriend: Gaylord might have been this for Lord Server in order to get himself in the position of operator [[spoiler:Subverted at the end of the series, as it's revealed that Gaylord only got that position because of a ridiculously large donation, which, by the way, consisted mainly of old Spainish gold coins. [[{{Main/Noodle Incident}} It's never explained how or why he had access to them]].]]
* FantasticRacism: Milky_Dad ''really'' hates [=NPC=]s.
* FinalDeath: Death on Minecraft is usually [[Main/DeathIsCheap cheap]], as dead players are simply revived at the spawn point. ''Unless'' of course, said death occurs on a hardcore world, which, unfortunately, is the kind of world the server was configurated to be. Gaylord ''[[Main/WildMassGuessing might]]'' have something to do with this.
* ForTheEvulz[=/=]ItAmusedMe: Everything Gaylord_Steambath does. [[spoiler:Played with near the end; he claims it's the former, but his actions as a griefer suggest the latter.]]
* FourthWallPortrait: Played with. See "Art Shift" above.
* FreudianExcuse: [[spoiler:Gaylord_Steambath claims to come from a broken family, and to have been bullied in school. [[InvertedTrope He quickly reveals he's lying, and attacks Noobly while he's distracted.]].]]
* FreudianTrio: The three main characters.
** TheKirk: Noobly.
** TheSpock: Pooploser_69 (aka Snake).
** TheMcCoy: Fart Garfunkel.
* GhostTown: That, "really well built community" sure is empty, isn't it?
** The mesa village the trio runs into later in the series also is this.
* GivingTheSwordToANoob: Only three noobs can defeat evil!
** The best equipment among the group is also given to Noobly, the noobiest of the three. Fart gets second priority of high grade equipment as well.
* AGodAmI: Gaylord sure has an inflated opinion of himself:
-->'''Gaylord:''' They call me Gaylord Steambath. I am the operator of this server. But, ''you'' may refer to me as... god...
* GRatedDrug: Milky_Dad's merchandise, which includes unspecified potions, mushrooms, and glowdust, none of which (aside from maybe the potions) have any intoxicating effects in the actual game. [[spoiler:He "goes straight" after Gaylord_Steambath is banned, opening a pharmaceutical stand.]]
* {{Griefer}}: Gaylord_Steambath. Hackers like "Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX" count as well.
* GutturalGrowler: Fart Garfunkel's signature voice.
* HeelFaceDoorSlam: [[spoiler: Milky_Dad]]. See below.
* HeroKiller: [[spoiler:Milky_Dad drops Fart in a dark pit to prove his new loyalty to Gaylord. Luckily, Fart survives.]]
* HiddenDepths: Fart, who knows a ''lot'' about French philosopher Descartes. He goes off for about 15 seconds, only to be cut off by Snake.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: All of the major villains go out like this.
** [[spoiler: Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX abuses his speed and jump hacks to chase Noobly & Co. When they're on the other side of a pool of lava, he tries to jump over it. [[AntiClimax Because he has no skill, he doesn't make it.]]]]
** [[spoiler: In episode 28, Gaylord fills the room with TNT to blow up the protagonists. They log out of the game, but he's too busy monologing to notice that he's still in survival mode. The resulting explosion sends him flying into lava, killing him. {{Downplayed}}, since he's an admin, and doesn't ''need'' to be careful because he can just respawn.]]
* HyperactiveMetabolism: Eating a raw piece of porkchop heals Fart from a fatal arrow wound during episode 2. [[{{Main/Justified Trope}} Justified]], however, since this is {{Videogame/Minecraft}} and the hunger bar feature didn't exist back when the episode came out.
* ICallItVera: Milky_Dad's iron sword, Irene. Doubles as a CompanionCube.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPAY: Concerning a certain [[UrbanLegendOfZelda ghost of the creator's brother]], it's either "He-ro-bro-nay" (Snake), "Hero-briny" (Fart), or "Hero-brine" (NPC Villager).
** A similar occurence happens earlier in the series, except this time, it concerns the ''creeper'' or, as snake puts it, ''creepist'' mob.
* KnightOfCerebus: Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX. [[spoiler:Subverted, though, since, after a long buildup of him hunting down the trio, his lack of actual skill (thus his use of hacks) comes to bite him in the ass in the form of a deadly [[{{Main/Epic Fail}} epic fail]], which, to add insult to injury, happened right as he was going to strike down one of his targets]].
* LargeHam: Only Gaylord is capable of turning creepy flamboyance into this. And that's not even going into his speeches. If you want know what we're talking about just scroll down until you find ''Main/ShutUpHannibal'' and read his quote. Or, you know, just watch the series...
* LaserGuidedKarma: [[spoiler: Milky_Dad back-stabs the trio by aligning himself with Gaylord. His reward, he himself gets [[DeathByIrony literally]] [[KarmicDeath back-stabbed]] by Gaylord.]]
* {{Main/Late to The Tragedy}}: By the time N00bly, Fart and Snake join the server, Gaylord's administration has already done quite a number on it.
* TheLeader: although everyone in the trio has occupied this position at least once, N00bly seems to be the one who most often finds himself giving the orders
* ManOfAThousandVoices: Jeff Schwertfeger, who voices Fart Garfunkel, Gaylord Steambath, ''and'' Milky_Dad, none of whom sound ''anything'' like each other.
* MeaningfulName: Yoda_Morpheus and possibly [[AmbiguouslyGay Gaylord_Steambath.]]
** The dark clad player fighting hacker that Gaylord recruits is, fittingly named, Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX
* TheMentor: Yoda_Morpheus.
** YoungerThanTheyLook: Played with. Despite being an Obi-Wan {{expy}}, with Yoda's name, it's pretty easy to tell he's a kid in real life. [[spoiler: At the end of his debut episode, he has to leave, because he got grounded for playing Minecraft for too long.]]
* {{Metaphorgotten}}: Gaylord makes up his own idioms occasionally when not making quote references.
* TheMole: Gaylord_Steambath's backstory involves him becoming an admin by pretending to be a NiceGuy. TruthInTelevision on Minecraft servers.
* MyLifeFlashedBeforeMyEyes: [[spoiler: After his own TNT trap goes off on him, Gaylord flashes back to all the chaos he caused after becoming an OP as he falls into lava.]]
* NoodleIncident: When Gaylord first met the N00bly, Snake and Fart, he wanted to make it look like the [[Main/TyrantTakesTheHelm reason]] behind the server's central town being so empty was this. Of course, this didn't last long, as the trio would soon find out said reason thanks to Pwny, but still.
-->'''Gaylord:''' Umm... Quite glad you asked. They all left due to cerain... Jurisdictional conflicts which I'd rather not speak about...
** Also, for whatever reason, Fart seems to have an irrational fear of being assaulted by the dwarves from ''[[{{Disney/Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs}} Snow White]]'', to the point that zombie villagers, who attack him on sight ''and'' have slightly similar facial features to that of said dwarves, completely frighten him. The weird part, though, is that his... phobia seems to come from a mysterious, unspecified past trauma, as the first thing he says after being jumped by a baby zombie villager is: ''"It's all coming back to me!!"''
** [[spoiler:In the final episode of the series, N00bly asks Lord Server why he gave ''[[{{Main/Griefer}} Gaylord]]'', of all people, the position of administrator. To that, Server answers that he only gave Gaylord the position because he made a ''ridiculously'' large monetary donation to the server, a donation that, by the way, consisted entirely of bags upon bags of centuries-old, spanish gold coins. We never get to know how Gaylord had those, let alone why he was willing to just spend them like they were nothing...]]
* ObviouslyEvil: Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX. Outside of his name, his skin gives him dark goggles covering his face and an all-black suit.
* QuipToBlack: Fart Garfunkel is ''very'' fond of this, even possessing [[Series/CSIMiami a pair of sunglasses]] for just such an occasion.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Lord_Server used to be this before his disappearance.
* RoaringRampageOfRevenge: Fart makes it his goal to [[spoiler:personally ram Irene up Milky_Dad's "blocky asshole".]]
* ScreamsLikeALittleGirl: Used in part 20 when Snake [[spoiler:has a unfortunate encounter with Herobrine.]]
* ScrewTheRulesIHaveMoney: [[spoiler:According to Lord Server, when Gaylord_Steambath volunteered to run the server in Server's absence, he was given the job largely because he had made a ridiculously large donation. He still gets banned when Server returns and discovers what he'd been doing, though.]]
* ShotgunsAreJustBetter: There are no shotguns in Minecraft, but this doesn't stop Fart from saying every once in a while that he ''really'' wishes there were.
* ShoutOut: All over the place.
** To ''Franchise/StarWars, Film/TheMatrix'', and many others.
** Silverfish. [[WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes Why did it have]] [[Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk to be Silverfish?]]
* ShutUpHannibal: Near the beginning of Episode 28, [[spoiler: Gaylord_Steambath makes a short speech about how his existence gives the noobs purpose, and without him, they'd just be hiding in a little dirt shack, eating wheat and cooking cobblestone. Noobly isn't having it.]]
-->'''Noobly:''' [[spoiler: Dude. You're just a dick.]]
** Done later in the same episode, after [[spoiler: Lord Server returns.]]
-->'''Gaylord:''' Fine! You win this battle! But heed my words, and heed them well, inferiors! You may think removing my powers will save you from grief, but there are hundreds, ''thousands'' more just like me! Enjoy your moment of serendipity, for I, '''Gaylord_Steambath, Eater of Worlds, shall-'''
-->[[spoiler:'''Lord_Server:''' Uhuh, yeah, that's nice, bye!]]
-->[[spoiler:'''Gaylord_Steambath has been banned.''']]
* SissyVillain: Check out those short shorts on Gaylord Steambath!
* SixthRanger: Milky_Dad.
* SixthRangerTraitor: [[spoiler:The above becomes Gaylord_Steambath's Dragon.]]
* TheSmartGuy: Snake always tries to fill in this role as best as he can, mostly by trying to remain calm and pointing out the more logical and practical solutions to a problem.
* SmurfettePrinciple: So far there has been only one girl in the entire series.
* TheSpeechless: Xx_Dark_PvP_Hacker_xX, not because he is mute, mind you, but rather because the admins had to silence him because of his constant spamming.
* TeamPet: Descartes the pig. Later, Boner the horse.
* TeleportSpam: One of Gaylord's many tricks.
* TemptingFate: [[UrbanLegendOfZelda To quote Snake: "There are no ghosts in Minecraft.]]
* ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet: Judging by Fart and Snake's reaction of disbelief upon hearing that Pwny_Rainb0w is, in fact, a girl and she is, in fact, playing Minecraft, it wouldn't be hard to assume that they are firm believers of this trope, or at least of its application to online games.
* TyrantTakesTheHelm: Even though it happened before the start of the series's main storyline, Gaylord's promotion to server operator ''definetly'' counted as this.
* UnfortunateNames: Pretty much everyone has these. Pooploser_69 got his name because he was tricked into thinking it was a cheat code for infinite diamonds. TruthInTelevision, as a lot of players in the actual game can have some pretty weird names.
* VillainsActHeroesReact: Near the beginning of episode 28, Gaylord makes a brief speech about this, claiming that without him to fight, the noobs would just be common players, living in a dirt shack, growing wheat and cooking cobblestone.
* VulgarHumour: Not too different from the one you'd find in an actual online game chatbox, in fact. The only difference, of course, being that this particular brand of vulgar humour is among those that are bit more well executed and even self aware from time to time. And, as a result, it actually ''doesn't'' make you want to feel ashamed for being part of the same species as the people who wrote these "jokes", imagine that! It may, in fact, even make you want to ''laugh'' at these jokes, yeah, that's right, ''laugh'', imagine ''that''!
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Pwny_Rainb0w, also, to a lesser extent, Descartes the pig.]]
* WhereAreTheyNowEpilogue: [[spoiler: The epilogue shows the server back up and running, with Noobly, Snake, and Fart overseeing the repairs to all the griefed structures.]] [[spoiler: It also shows that Gaylord_Steambath decided to go and harass a Counter Strike server after getting banned.]]
* WhyDidItHaveToBeSnakes: Fart is ''very'' afraid of zombie villagers. Apparently because they remind him of the dwarfs from ''[[{{Disney/Snow White and The Seven Dwarfs}} Snow White]]''... Okay, why don't we let ''him'' explain, then:
-->'''Fart:''' ''[Shortly after being attacked by a baby zombie villager]'' It's all coming back to me!
-->Snow white!
-->...Dwarves!...
-->My nightmare is reality!!
