Zsdav Adventures by Dávid Zsidakovits is a Hungarian Minecraft machinima series on YouTube. It was originally a Let's Play series on a survival island map titled Zsdav és a haverok (Zsdav and the dudes). The fictional narrative started in the Aranyalma (Golden apple) Story Arc after the completion of the map when they left the island on boats. Kiválasztott (Chosen one) was the second and final arc of Zsdav és a haverok then the Zsdav Adventures series offially started. It has been on hiatus for a while and it is currently unknown if it will continue.

It centers around Zsdav who goes on many adventures, either alone or with friends and Ödön the pet pig. It experiments with as many genres as possible, such as fantasy, Science Fiction, horror, mystery, and disaster.

  • Adaptational Heroism: Darth Maul appears as the ghost of Christmas present to teach Zsdav the true meaning of Christmas in Karácsonyi külön kiadás (Christmas special).
  • Adaptational Villainy: Tiny Tim appears as a recurring villain in the series where he lost his legs and tries vile and cruel methods to grow them back. He debuted in Karácsonyi külön kiadás (Christmas special) where he shows no signs of villainy but after-coming episodes do portray him as evil.

  • Badass on Paper: Zsdav has fought many villains and saved people, yet still remains as average who gets called an "idiot" by many.
