* 1.10 update added a new structure called fossils, which are made of bone blocks. This doesn't seem too bad on it's own until fridge horror kicks in when you realize that these are huge and you start wondering what kind of creature left these bones behind. You then thank your lucky stars that whatever it was is now extinct.
** At least, thatís not counting on the possibility that you just happened to stumble across the remains of one of those creatures, and that there [[NotSoExtinct are living ones still out there in the world somewhere...]]

* [[https://knowyourmeme.com/memes/grotesque-steve-steveposting Grotesque Steve.]] It's bad enough that it's [[UncannyValley a disturbingly realistic-looking Steve]], but then you realize that this ''[[ItIsDehumanizing thing]]'' is already a bonafide MemeticMolester. Do you really want ''[[{{Gonk}} this]]'' giving you bedroom eyes?

** Play both 11 and 13 at the same time, and you'll notice they sync well for an even creepier experience.


The underground tunnels of ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'' have been compared to ''VideoGame/SystemShock2'' due to their complete isolation, the darkness, and the mindless polygonal [[BodyHorror Body Horrors]]. [[NightmareFuel And there's still more to it]].[[note]]Fun(?) fact: One of the random splashes (those yellow text thingies) in the title screen says "Scary!" because [[CaptainObvious some people think Minecraft is scary.]][[/note]]

* When walking around an enchanting table the book swivels to follow the player, like a creepy moving eye painting in a haunted house. It's as if we made the Necronomicon instead of a normal helpful item that makes surviving easier.

* Sometimes Villagers will just stare down at the ground, their (lack of) neck oddly craning. This usually seems to mean there's a cave system under the villager, and the Villager somehow knows it. Iron Golems also do this when they detect enemies but can't get to them. It's a little creepy to see a Villager just staring like that, especially when it means there's possibly an unseen mob around. Also, Villagers love building villages [[TooDumbToLive over open cave systems]].

** Their second iteration was from two much more disturbing hoax streams on Brocraft in which two different players are terrorized for a moment, after which one of the two provided a webpage [[https://web.archive.org/web/20130710001351/http://ghostinthestream.net/him.html (archived version)]]featuring a Steve with real eyes and a garbled text describing torture victims who would retreat into delusional dreamworlds from which they must find their own mental note to escape.

* One of the more strange features of the game is that ambient sounds play when the player finds - or is just somewhat close to - a very dark area. [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LwcgG7ZYlFE Try listening to all 13 tracks if you dare.]]

*** If you don't think that's fun enough, try unwittingly building your base right on top of a cave system. You get all the foreboding noises without having to leave the comfort of your own home! Sweet dreams!

** To make matters worse, a damaged Silverfish will reveal all nearby hidden Silverfish. Woe betide you if you harm one in a Stronghold without killing it instantly - chances are that a quarter of the blocks in the area will break, unleashing a swarm onto you.
