Nintendo Switch Online: What Did We Think of the Announcement? Need assistance with editing this wiki? Herobrine is a rumored Hostile Mob found in Minecraft. He is the center of endless speculation and Minecraft game 360, producing explanations of his origins such as a ghost, Notch’s dead brother, revenge carried out by a fired Mojang employee, and a slew of others.

I had recently spawned a new world in single-player Minecraft. Everything was normal at first as I began chopping down trees and crafting a workbench. I thought it was a cow, so I pursued it, hoping to grab some hides for armor. Looking back at me was another character with the default skin, but his eyes were empty. I saw no name pop up, and I double-checked to make sure I wasn’t in multiplayer mode. He didn’t stay long, he looked at me and quickly ran into the fog.

I continued on with the game, not sure what to think. 2×2 tunnels in the rocks, small perfect pyramids made of sand in the ocean, and groves of trees with all their leaves cut off. I would constantly think I saw the other «player» in the deep fog, but I never got a better look at him. I tried increasing my render distance to far whenever I thought I saw him, but to no avail. I saved the map and went on the forums to see if anyone else had found the pseudo-player. I created my own topic telling of the man and asking if anyone had a similar experience. The post was deleted within five minutes.

I tried again, and the topic was deleted even faster. I received a PM from username ‘Herobrine’ containing one word: ‘Stop. When I went to look at Herobrine’s profile, the page 404’d. I received an email from another forum user. He claimed the mods can read the forum user messages, so we were safer using email.
