* ShownTheirWork: This could be just a graphics bug, but when you look at lava flowing down through water you can see it surrounded by a hazy light-blue glow. This looks very much like steam that should be created by boiling water as lava is flowing through it.

** A more deliberate example: Contrary to popular misconception, "beehive" technically means a ''man-made'' bee enclosure, which is more often called a "bee box" by laymen; what most people think of when they read "beehive" is actually a "bee ''nest''". The 1.15 snapshots, set to introduce bees and both kinds of bee homes, uses the correct terminology.



** Illagers have banners of their face that they proudly wear in illager patrols and pillager outposts as hats (along with additional banners on the outpost tower for good measure).

* VirtuousBees: Bees can provide the player with honey (which can be eaten or transformed into sugar) and honeycombs (which can be used to craft bee hives for more bees), and when they carry pollen they can pollinate crops and sweet berry bushes to accelerate their growth. They only attack the player if the player attacks them, or harvests from or destroys their hive, but that can be prevented by putting a campfire directly underneath the hive or by holding a flower in either hand, and bees lose their stinger after attacking once and die within the next minute.

** Just like Creepers, Phantoms are absolutely terrified of cats, and will abruptly stop mid-swoop if one hisses at them.



** The basic mechanic of the Illager Raids is this. They overwhelm the player in sheer numbers, murdering villagers and destroying crops as they go along, getting worse with each wave that happens.



** Since 1.14, a village will occasionally spawn as a Zombie Village; no torches or doors, and the inhabitants are all zombie villagers. Presumably, this village type is the aftermath of one of these.

* SuperStrength: Zig-zagged. Players can fill up their inventory with feathers (a total of 4.6kg) and not carry any more... but they can carry up to just short of 50,000 tons (filling the inventory with nothing but gold blocks), without any difficulty whatsoever.


* SeldomSeenSpecies: Ocelots, silverfish, and various flowers such as bluets, peonies and allium are seen in ''Minecraft'' and almost nowhere else.

* SeldomSeenSpecies: Ocelots, silverfish, and various flowers such as bluets, peonies and allium are seen in ''Minecraft'' and almost nowhere else. Some of the named subspecies of tropical fish, such as the Dottyback and Red Cichlid qualify, as does mycelium, a type of fungus that grows in soil.

Added DiffLines:

** Bees collect pollen from flowers, which they carry back to their hives and transform into honey. Real bees make honey from flower nectar, though this may be [[AcceptableBreaksFromReality deliberate simplification]].

Added DiffLines:

* StockBeehive: The naturally generated bee nests look like the usual golden-colored wasp nests seen in fiction.

* ShoutOut: More than enough to justify its [[ShoutOut/{{Minecraft}} own page]].


** If you have multiple tamed wolves following you, they will rush any mob that you attack or get attacked by. Normally one wolf is enough to make quick work of a Zombie or Skeleton, but against a very strong enemy (like an Enderman or an Iron Golem) they will keep swarming it and suffer some casualties if it doesn't go down fast enough.

* AWinnerIsYou: For a long time, the game had no ending or sign of progression at all, living up to the true wide open sandbox name. When the game became a full version, players could go on a lengthy quest to gather materials needed to eventually reach The End realm and fight the Enderdragon. Beating the dragon got you 20,000 experience points and the player was left with a ''really long'' and pretty slow crolling text with two unseen beings talking to the player, having a ''very'' [[MindScrew surrealist dialogue about existence and reality]], followed by the credits.

* SprintMeter: Done somewhat differently. Your Hunger Meter (which can be refilled by eating) is made of ten muttonchops. If the top two not empty, you'll slowly heal. If three or less are full, there's no way to sprint. If it's empty, you take gradual damage which ends differently depending on difficulty--Half health in Easy, [[OneHitpointWonder one HP]] in Normal, death by starvation in Hard or {{Hard|erThanHard}}core.

* TastesLikeFriendship: You can tame wolves by feeding them bones, and ocelots by feeding them fish.

** The same goes for cats, aka tamed ocelots. They're adorable, and also serve as a handy creeper repellent. You can get quite attached to them, as long as they don't drive you mad by holding sit-ins on your bed and crafting table.

* TheScream: The faces embedded in the Soul Sand texture found from The Nether. [[AndIMustScream They don't really look like they're enjoying themselves.]]



* SelfDestructingSecurity: Desert Temples contain a room with four treasure chests, each containing rare and valuable loot. At the center of the room, however, is a pressure plate linked to nine blocks of TNT hidden beneath the floor. One must tread carefully, because if exploded, the TNT will destroy the chests and everything inside, and probably kill the player as well.

** TNT traps set to blow up entire bases are also popular on some servers. If invaders are going to steal all of your stuff, might as well give them one last "Screw You" and not let anyone enjoy your equipment, right?



* SpritePolygonMix: The game uses billboarded sprites for dropped non-block items. Dropped block items are rotating 3D models of the blocks. Less so after 1.4.6., where all entities are 3D. Saplings and other fauna are still billboards, and don't rotate to match the player.

* TutorialFailure: During its initial beta run, the wildly popular game featured ''no tutorial'' and simply dumped your character into a randomized block world with absolutely no gear. It didn't tell you anything of what to do, how to play, or even how to craft, or what the crafting recipes were. For the months before Notch actually developed enough of a tutorial system to help players ''survive'' their first day, player advice for newbies was generally "go read the wiki" or "watch paulsoaresjr's videos".
