  • Recommended by: Random Adventure
  • Synopsis : The server is falling into ruins, with a wide-scale Zombie Apocalypse going on. Steve, Vince and Jeff, along with their new-found friend Whitey, journey towards a city called North Haven, which Steve believes will grant them safety. But North Haven isn't what it seems to be...
  • Note : Keep in mind that this storyline occurs in Season Two. Season One is actually a series of Let's Plays, so don't get it confused with the Season Two animations. Also note that there might be some swearing, sexual situations and violence. Also, keep in mind that the Season Two pilot is not related to the series ''at all''.
  • Pairings: It briefly features a Crack Pairing between two minor characters.
  • It has its own trope page now.

Teh Story of Evets - Minecraft Machinima by ShockSand

Anything by Slamacow

  • Recommended by: Yuihime
  • Synopsis: A creator of 3d animated comedy short videos and occasionally more serious music videos based on Minecraft. The music videos are usually a joint project with other creators, and include both song parodies ("I Love My Minecraft World") and original Minecraft-themed songs ("From The Ground Up"). The shorts are self-contained but usually reference each other, and are minimally voiced.
  • Pairings: None, unless you count the elderly OC's in "From The Ground Up".
  • Note: Now has a trope page.

Minecraft: The N00b Adventures by falconer02

  • Recommended by: Augusto
  • status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Minecraft: The N00b Adventures is an animated series that narrates the story of three newcomers to a Minecraft server (N00bly,"Snake", and Fart Garfunkel) as they travel through the land, learn a few of the ins and outs of the game, and plot the dowfall of the tyrannical, ambiguously gay, jerkass, and, uh, eccentric griefer operator of the now-ruined server.
  • Note: An affectionate parody to both Minecraft's online playing community as well as to online gaming in general, Minecraft: The N00b Adventures has a special brand of pseudo-immature, vulgar humor that genuenely feels like it was ripped out of a videogame chatbox and rewritten by a competent writer so it won't make you want to gouge your eyes out with a spork. Think of it like a slightly less energetic version of Dick Figures that kind of reminds you of Red vs. Blue from time to time. All in all, it's a really funny, surprisingly well written and surprisingly well animated series that's definitely worth your attention if you've got 28 six-minute episodes worth of time to spare.

Minecraft For Noobs (Cartoon) by Alex Crish

  • Recommended by: Augusto
  • Status: Ongoing, for now.
  • Synopsis: A lighthearted, whimsical, and somewhat surreal affectionate parody of Minecraft that follows the adventures of an unnamed protagonist who is new to the game and thus is being teached how to play by the equally unnamed narrator. The series is entirely made by overlaping doodle-ish, hand drawn animation over Minecraft screenshots and has gone through several quality leaps in regard to its art style and animation through the years. Used to be popular on YouTube, but now has fallen into obscurity due to past hiatuses and long run time.
  • Note: Oddly enough, though, the Russian dubs uploaded on Alex's second channel seem to be doing a bit better. Only time will tell why...
  • Pairings: None.

  • Synopsis: Steve enters the world of Minecraft and meets an unexpected friend...

Annoying Villagers by MrFudgeMonkeyz

  • Recommended by: The Gray Shadow
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: What was initially a simple series starring derpy villagers and mobs spirals into a massive war with the players stemming from their apparent sentience. Oh, and Herobrine's here too, in case you thought the situation couldn't get any more insane. It is notable for its growth in animating quality, such as choreography, lighting, sound effects, and visual effects as it progresses.
  • Note: Captions are preferable for those who can't make out what some of the characters are saying.
  • Pairing(s): None.

The World in Which We Fail by Mellifluousness
  • Recommended by: Silverfireneko
  • Status: Complete
  • Synopsis: Basically? The insane ramblings of a girl playing Minecraft, which eventually spawns a plot. Written by an author with a pen name that's fun to say. Mellifluousness. Go on, say it. You know you want to.
  • Pairing(s): none.

"Minecraft: The Awakening by Midnight Vixen and Twilitangel

  • Recommended by: Detective Robo Monkey
  • Status: Ongoing
  • Synopsis: A comic featuring Steve, Herobrine, and original character Mindy. The art is fantabulous, the story(or what we've seen so far) is incredible, and it's completely worth the wait between updates.
  • Note: Takes its own sweet time updating, but updates tend to come in pairs and deviantArt's message system doesn't always notify you immediately.
  • Pairings: None at all, so far.

Blood, Laughter, and Tears by The Flaming Dark

  • Recommended by: Viraldemons
  • Vanished from the internet. Please post a link if found.
  • Synopsis: A meek prince that already had some issues (Cough-split personality-cough) goes on an adventure and kills stuff on the way. With superpowers. Given by Herobrine.
  • Pairing(s): OC/OC

Minecraft Level of Corruption by J 053 D 4 N 13 L 35 C 083 D 0

  • Recommended by: Calico Jack Rackham
  • Status: Dormant
  • Synopsis: Fifteen years after the defeat of the Enderdragon, the miner Steve has united the realm of Minecraftia under one banner, and rules as its benevolent lord. But people always forget, power always corrupts, even to those with hearts of gold. With a fallen hero ruling the realm, a young man decides to fight back, using the most unlikeliest of allies to help him.
  • Pairing(s): OC/Harem
  • Comments: The author stated that elements of Assassin's Creed were going to be used in the story. Apparent in chapter 4.

MCSM: Immortal's Child by Silver Silence 14

  • Recommended by: The Daughter Of Poseidon
  • Status: Complete

Give Up the Fight by Black Dragon 41

  • Recommended by: iamsolarflare
  • Status: Dead; last updated November 2014
  • Synopsis: A small child named Steve runs into an injured Herobrine and tries to nurse him back to full health, despite abusive parents and Herobrine's unwillingness to heal.
  • Pairing(s): None yet, and there probably won't be
  • Comments: Has long chapters and takes a while between updates, but is worth the read.

My Craft by OnTheCobb

  • Recommended by: Stingbeam, E-fitz
  • Status: Ongoing.
  • Synopsis: Devoid of memory or purpose, a new Crafter is pushed forth into the unforgiving land of Minecraftia. Armed with nothing but his wits, he must…well…actually, he's pretty witless. Hopefully, he won't get killed in the first week. Hopefully.
  • Pairings: None.
  • Comments: A lighthearted comedy fic (with a plot), with its fair share of moments between seriousness, and laughable scenes. As the synopsis points out, the MC of this fic has NO common sense what so ever during the first couple dozen chapters. The OCs in this fic are fleshed out, and the lore makes sense. One of those fics that stand out. Also helps that the author updates (bi)weekly.
  • Now has a trope page here.

Destroy the Godmodder by TT 2000, Twin Builder, Pionoplayer, and others
  • Recommended by: Gutza 1
  • Status: Finished, with a Reboot in progress
  • Synopsis: A series of Multiplayer Crossover play-by-post forum games detailing multiple wars between a Nigh-Invulnerable hacker known as the Godmodder and a series of Minecraft players known as Descendants who have the power to summon entities from every conceivable fictional universe. The second game is famous for developing an intricate story spanning the entire multiverse, crossing over fictional universes from Portal to Homestuck.

How well does it match the trope?
