      herobrine was just a fired mojang employee who is now getting revenge... but he actually is chasing down players who are bad to the game. Still trying to figure out if thats true 🤔🤔

    Fun fact for y’all. The “removed herobrine” patch note WAS in every single major update change log…
    Up until 1.16, the nether update. There has been no mention of removing him since then.

      @NoteNickel the last “removed Herobrine” was in the 1.16.2 changelog, which was released in 2020’s August, day 11. Mojang was purchased by Microsoft in 2014’s November, day 15, over a year before the release of 1.9.

    i think the reason why herobrine and tons of other creepypastas are so scary is because usually when reading a creepypasta story you dont get a complete picture of what the antagonist of the story is. meaning that it becomes the most horrifying monster of all, the monster your mind makes for you.

    You know, I would 100% download a mod that added the original style of herobrine into the game. One that wasn't malicious, but just... Odd.
    Sometimes at night when you got in a bed it told you another player needed to sleep, even in single player, always one more than the current amount, but only for 10 seconds before disappearing. Sometimes you would be out and about and a message of " is sleeping in a bed, all players need to be asleep in order for time to pass". No name, no nothing else weird.
    Sometimes structures that you have never visited before have already had their chests emptied and trapped deactivated. Sometimes you would come across trees without leaves, random dirt structures, odd things.
    But you wouldn't see Herobrine fully. Maybe you see what you think is a player in the distance, maybe you'll hear mining outside of your house and some nearby dirt is gone, but by the time you see it nothing is there.
    He never attacks you directly. Never hurts you in any way intentionally. He's just there, like another player in your game, but not.

      For years I've been day dreaming about features like this in games - things that step outside the pretext of the game, completely unpredictable layers of interactions that come out of nowhere. ...The only game I know of that came close to this is A Dark Room - in the way it expands far beyond what you think the game is when you begin, which, imo, provides a very rare and special pleasure to play through - but I'd love to see that elsewhere, basically one game warping into another, breaking its own 'laws of physics' ...luring the player into a sense of security so they think they know the parameters and limitations of the 'world' then exploding those boundaries. ...The difficulty would be keeping it secret so it kept surprising, which would be practically impossible.

    I have a pretty unique story about the blank eyed demon. When I was younger on W10 edition, I looked up Herobrine summoning shrines. I found as many as I could, and built all of them in my creative world. Around 15 minutes later, Minecraft crashed entirely. When I loaded back up into Minecraft, the world said it had around 70 gigabytes of storage in it, despite it being significantly lower before. When I tried to enter the world, it crashed again and the world proceeded to delete itself. 10-11 year-old me became extremely skeptical about Herobrine actually existing after that one. I would come to find out that it was a bug that ironically happened on that world in particular. So that was fun.

    I’ve always believed that Herobrine is as real as people allow him to be. Was that cave noise him? Yes it was. Was that weird chunk loading bug him? Yes it was. Was that HOAX him? YES. IT WAS. Because Herobrine was there, just not in the way that people think.
    For me, Herobrine is not a someone or a something. He’s an IDEA. A thought. If you consider something to be or be caused by Herobrine, the yes. It IS Herobrine. Because your thoughts make him more real than any patch notes. In the end… isn’t he real to someone? Herobrine is real, just not in the way people think - but also in the way people TNINK. Does that make sense? Maybe not.

    I've only had a few strange things happen while playing single player. Something unique happened that I've never heard about before though ( just fyi I played on the Xbox 360 at the time). One world I created and joined was a custom super flat with diamond blocks at the top and lapis was the rest in pretty sure. When I found a village all the villagers were named "Notch" and all the mobs that spawned were automatically named "Notch" I have no proof though since mobs no longer spawn in that world and the only mobs left in that world are the ones I put on leads and/or were named "Notch". 👺

    I was terrified of mining in Minecraft for so long. Didn't help that my brother told me he would be in Mine Shafts and he was haunting.
    Every time I forced myself to mine to get resources and I would be super paranoid. It felt like I saw some things that were probably just some mob or fog.
    I am getting better, and better at handling the darkness. But soon there'll be another creature to hunt us down...

    Something that occurred to me in-game a lot when I was little, would be that when ever I left the home down in the mine directly under it, I would sometimes hear my door open and close, I would always go back up and find nothing. I always thought it's some sort of bug/glitch, although I always wondered what it actually was, a Chicken opening my door? Or a Enderman? Or a Bug? At some point I tried googling about it but didn't find anything.

    In one of my singleplayer worlds back in 1.2 I had this weird thing happen to me. Every now and then random, single brick blocks would appear around my house and in other parts of my world. As far as I know there is no way brick spawns naturally and with my young age I didn't even know how to craft brick. Some time later I found a Iron Golem in the middle of a Forest miles away from my home, no village in sight. Never touched that world again after that.

    What if herobrine was just the embodiment of bugs and glitches that made it Minecraft? It's not like that Herobrine is real as a player like entity but as the one who makes up the things that are weird and horrifyingly unique. This might be why Minecraft Updates are always saying removing Herobrine because they were removing thee bugs.

    I think Notch actually had an idea for adding Herobrine in Minecraft and he actually existed in-game, not as a patch or beta, version but as a WIP Java project, and for some reason they removed before launching this project as an update, probably because it was hard to program this kind of thing under a week (which was how often Minecraft would update) and it caused too much bugs just by existing in the files of the game, or because there wasn't too much point in adding it to the game at all or they didn't have too much plans for it.
    About the "Removed Herobrine" joke, I guess it was because of Notch getting annoyed by people asking about Herobrine, he started to use the "Removed Herobrine" in the newer updates so that people would leave him alone until it became more of a joke then a "There is what you wanted, you happy?" kind of thing

    the most reasonable thing i can think of without watching the video:
    the first ever image proof of herobrine could be real somehow, and maybe notch just wanted to add an entity in memory of his brother, acting exactly like a ghost.
    After that, there was a really small chance of actually meeting this entity, but seeing how popular and ridiculous this was going, the mojang team decided to remove it entirely. The only weird thing is the "removed herobrine" stuff, but maybe with some coding skills the problem could be solved.
    The herobrine user, that didnt have an account apparently, was probably one of his friend that deleted his profile soon after, and they just got away with it
    Now, im not accusing anybody of faking and this is just my opinion, but maybe there is a bigger secret, connected somehow to notch's brother; in a few years, i bet that the mistery is gonna be solved

      Markus Pesserson never had a brother, the entire thing was a creepypasta. The first herobrine was the "Human" mob from the earliest versions of the game, which has since been removed since 1.8. Although the "Removed Herobrine" thing is a joke, it actually references how with every update bits of code from the EntityLiving classfile that constituted the Human mob was slowly being removed

    I remember when the newer ambient noises were implemented. Scared the shit out of me as I hadn't read the patchnotes for that update. Once I began actually listening for a few minutes and the sound triggered again, it didn't take long to figure out there were new ambiences. My game was unmodded, so it didn't take much to narrow down what the source was.Even went and checked the patch notes to confirm and yup. Gave me a good scare though and I loved it! Even now the ambiences still startle me. lol

    I've had this one really creepy encounter for me once, I was playing Minecraft PE around 6-7 years ago (I think, it was long ago to remember) and I was scrolling through my world page and I saw this empty named world. So I was curious and joined it, when I spawn in I'm facing this pyramid that looked identical to the one in this video (0:27) so I was still curious but a little questionable, I climb the pyramid and there's a hole at the top, I look down the hole and theres alot of space down the hole including water to drop down in from, so I drop down I think around 15 blocks down and I start exploring the bit mined out inside the pyramid, I think I found this chest and I open it and theres nothing inside but at the same time I hear something behind me (the water) and it sounds like splashing noises, at the moment I got a shiver down my spine. In-game I turn around and I see that the water is gone, I immediately freak out because I don't know what's going on (At the time I was around 7 or 8) and I calm down a bit and explore a bit more, and then I hear the water noise when you place it back down, I turn around and there it is again filling up the hole. I immediately left the world and stopped playing minecraft for that day. The next day I log back on and I am curious again so I look for the unnamed world, and I realize it's not there anymore on my world list, and I did not delete the world because I was too scared and in a hurry the day before to delete it. Let me know if anyone has had anything similar happen to them in Minecraft.

    I actually thought I saw Herobrine once but it turned out to either be be some left over or corrupted code that caused the old human mob to show up in a version it wasn't supposed to be in
    I'm not sure how it happened but it was the early days of minecraft so a lot of things were happening that weren't intended

    One of the reasons why I've had arguments with kids about the legitimacy of his existence in elementary school, I blame this creepypasta for ruining friendships, HECK I even blame myself for being stupid in the first place. Also, my hypothetical theory is, the screenshot could've been taken in a multiplayer world but with the "recipient" aka the player with the Herobrine skin using some sort of hack/cheat to disable their gamertag that is displayed above the player's head, to make him/her really seem like it was a mob within Minecraft itself to the OTHER player so that the shot could be taken and therefore with the gamertag disabled (or hey, even photoshopped out of the original image) makes it "legitimate" to the viewers.

    I saw an 11 year old kid who was so terrified of herobrine, to the point where I had to tell him that he isn't real and it was just a hoax made up by someone. safe to say he was a little bit disappointed, but also relieved in a way.

    Something that scared the hell out of me years ago on Windows 10 Edition was when I was building some shitty adventure map (as we all did back then), and I went into survival to test it. A few seconds later, I died randomly and when I respawned, the map I had built was gone. Looking back, the death was probably the annoying random death glitch, and the map being "gone" was probably just the chunks being slow to load in (I immediately left the world, so they probably just weren't loaded yet). One thing I can't explain though, is that after that happened to me, random worlds that I didn't make started popping up in my game. None of my family played Minecraft, so I don't know what it is. The worlds would have random structures like basic redstone machines and stuff. They were probably just old worlds I had forgotten about, since I probably had hundreds of worlds in that worlds folder, but it was still really creepy.
    Another weird thing that happened to me a few years after is that (I was now playing on Nintendo Switch) is when these two accounts would constantly send me invites to their world. I never joined it, but I still wondered what their purpose was. Weird

Then stuff around me got covered in lava and he flew around starting fires. Absolutely ruined my world, and I remeber it so clearly because I threw a tantrum after 😂. And no I was not on WiFi at the time so no one could have joined my game.

    I swear that Herborine existed. I must have been 8 or 9, building a pretty terrible excuse for a treehouse on top of one of those giant jungle trees in creative mode. It sounds so stupid, but he appeared, spawned hostile wolves and villagers with white eyes, and then killed me. I was freaked out, left the game, and ran to tell my dad, but when I came back to the game, there was no sign of any of that.

    If you made a super flat world delete it. Make a new word call it the same name. Delete world then remaking a super flat with the same name. Go back to where you started sometimes the game glitches and loads in the normal world chunks on a super flat. Had a really cool house on a mountain surrounded by a super flat mega village.

    Once when I was a child playing minecraft on my Xbox 360, a cave sound appeared and I saw an default Steve arm. I thought it was herobrine but now that I am older, I believe I was seeing things because I was very scared of cave sounds back in the day. Another time, a cave sound appeared again and I turned super quick and saw a entity shadow. Again, I don’t think this was real because I was just a child and I really was afraid of cave sounds.

Very cool how you did proper research, it's often rare to see content creators making these sorts of "documentaries" get things this right, which is probably a large problem with the site itself.

    Imo, herobrine may be a thing - kind of. The most reasonable explanation is the human mob and a lot of bugs with world generator in alpha/beta version of minecraft (especially when they change world saving in beta 1.3 if i remember correctly) - on polish youtube we have at least one legit video where we can see some really weird things with world and one really weird mob which maybe call a "herobrine" things (i may put link to this video if is someone interested in) but it was just a really weird bug with world. We also has second video with probably "herobrine" like a mob but as i know to this day author didn't say it was a "real" thing, or just he want to troll people (i also can put link to this video if someone is interesed in). As i remember, i probably seen herobrine in alpha 1.2.6, but yea - i was something around 10-12yo, was scared af when i seen him and i just download this version of mc to just try to find him, so yea... my brain can just create a fake mob on screen, or i just mistake him with something else v: So yea, herobrine as a someone that want to kill you and destroy your world probably never exists, but like a bugs in world generator or some weird bug that spawn human mob may be a real thing

    I can't remember what version it was, but i was looking through the textures. I wanted to make something funny. And suddenly, i found a folder, that only contained two files. 2 png's. The first one was Steve. Nothing unusal about that. Then i opened the other one, and it was the texture of Herobrine. It wasn't something i had added to the files. It was a fresh installation of this version, because i wanted to make some funny textures, from scratch. I don't know why it was there, but i found it. I didn't know about Herobrine back then, so i thought it was a mob i hadn't encountered yet. But no matter how much i played, i never saw it. I didn't know anything about code back then, so i didn't look there for answers. I've tried to find it again, but no luck. I know it's impossible to proof anything without evidence, so if you don't believe me, i don't blame you. But i know what i saw. I don't know if Mojang have removed it afterwards. After all, you download the versions from their servers, so you never know. I don't think that Herobrine was a mob in the game, but maybe that someone put the texture there, to make it look like it was. I don't know, but it could be. Sometimes people add things, without their boss knowing. That has been seen before. So maybe they did it as a joke or something. And even if i had evidence, people could just say it's fake. Back then, the only evidence i could save, was the files. But yeah, mods exist and so on. So, as i said, if you don't believe me, i don't blame you

    I'm not lying when I say that Herobrine is real. He was legit in my world. My friend mainly was the one who encountered him but I was walking towards my house and heard lightning even though it wasn't a storm. It was clear weather. Also, each time I logged on to that world my tree farm would have several half broken trees and it wasn't a server. No one could be on the world unless I was. My friend also found a dispenser full of diamonds and a sign that said "thank you" in Swedish where he had dropped one diamond before he got kicked off by Herobrine. He was very reluctant to get back on that world after the incident.

      @Wing Shan Cheng The trees had to be real because it wasn't a server or realm which means that my friend couldn't be on the world unless I was on. Also once there were some oak planks leading up to the tops of the trees. I do agree that what he said he saw could've been a prank to make fun of the fact that I believed in Herobrine. I don't think the others were bugs though because we were kind of joking about Herobrine which could've made him a little upset.
