Nome reale

Herobrine (Persson)





Conosciuto per

Essere diventato un'icona della comunità Minecraft.


Herobrine(Pronuncia) è il soggetto di un "creepy-pasta" (Storia paurosa) fatta dalla community. È diventato una delle maggiori icone di Minecraft.

Herobrine non è mai stato presente in nessuna versione di Minecraft.

Il "canone" di Herobrine è riferito alla prima immagine/storia postata su di esso, durante lo stream di Brocast. Tutto quello posto dopo questi eventi sono considerati adattamenti/variazioni fatti dai fan.

C'è Herobrine in Minecraft?

Herobrine non è in Minecraft.

Non c'è riferimento a lui in tutto il codice sorgente, e non c'è nessun codice che permette ad un entità di fare come Herobrine. Non c'è nessuna generazione del terreno nel codice che permette di generare torce di pietrarossa, tunnel 2x2 o dungeon con trappole elaborate.

Non c'è nessuna possibilità che Herobrine sia mai esistito su client o server non modificati. Ogni rivendicazione su Herobrine è completamente falsa. Ogni apparizione è causata da mod che sono state installate.

La Minecraft Wiki e il Forum non parteciperanno mai alle bufale virali riguardo Herobrine. Ogni commento riguardo Herobrine che viene cancellato è puramente per il fatto che Herobrine non esiste, e le storie sono completa finzione, con l'intento di condurre gli altri in queste bufale, o il risultato di utenti che giocano con delle mod installate nel proprio gioco senza esserne a conoscenza.

Origins and popularity

The story of Herobrine.
Herobrine's first video "appearance" on Brocast.
The image all Brocast viewers were redirected to at the end of the Herobrine stream.

From the original creepy-pasta, Herobrine creates random constructions, such as pyramids and long 2-block-high tunnels. He also burns down, or cuts off leaves from trees, and creates cobblestone-complexes underground, much like dungeons, lit with redstone torches.

Herobrine first appeared in a single image detailing an encounter. It was posted on a thread in the forums, and gained very little attention. It stated how Herobrine had appeared in someone's single-player game, littering the map with various pyramids and tunnels. It is the first media to name him as Herobrine.

It was only later that Herobrine grew in popularity, when the Brocast staff staged a hoax in one of their live-streams. Herobrine was introduced to the stream here (at 20:45).

Later on, there was another video showing Herobrine in a user-made lava field. The livestream went down after the player ran and saved, only to resume ten minutes later, where Herobrine had disappeared.

During this stream, the player can be heard talking to his wife, stating he was trolling, which flooded the livestream chat with outrage. The player then faked a game crash.

During this crash, all watchers were redirected to another page, featuring Steve's face, but with real, frantically rolling eyes in the place of his block eyes, modified to be completely black.

When viewing the page's source, there were a jumble of characters and letters. after removing all non-alphabet characters, the following message was revealed.

It has been reported that some victims of torture, during the act, would retreat into a fantasy world from which they could not WAKE UP. In this catatonic state, the victim lived in a world just like their normal one, except they weren't being tortured. The only way that they realized they needed to WAKE UP was a note they found in their fantasy world. It would tell them about their condition, and tell them to WAKE UP. Even then, it would often take months until they were ready to discard their fantasy world and PLEASE WAKE UP.

The message keeps telling the viewer to "wake up", implying they're living in a fantasy world, and this text hidden in the page is their "note".

It is widely believed all of his appearances in the stream are retextured paintings or iron doors. frames taken from the stream indicate he was very flat to the wall, making paintings the likely cause. This indicates they were using a specialised HD texture pack, but with low-res textures for all other blocks.

Since then, there has been a huge increase in his popularity, propelling Herobrine to meme status, and making him an icon of the community. There are several mods, animations, pieces of artwork and constructions of Herobrine that have been created.


Herobrine ha una sola pronuncia in Italiano (Sia Italiano che Italiano Svizzero).

Si pronuncia come "Irobrain" con la I che si "risucchia".

La versione Europea della pronuncia (Sia italiana che inglese, francese o altre lingue europee) è vista come una storpiatura, perché il team Brocast l'ha pronunciato durante il livestream ed essendo sia loro che "Herobrine" svedesi la pronuncia è diversa.

What Herobrine is

Herobrine is Notch's dead brother, somehow embedded into Minecraft. While this is the "canon", this is also completely false in reality, as Notch has no brother.

Ghost aside, there are two plausible canon theories remaining.

Herobrine shows a lot of characteristics of being a form of virus, such as manipulating game worlds, deleting threads and sending messages through the Minecraft Forums. Perhaps also hacking into Notch's email and twitter to reply on his own existence. Or, Herobrine is simply a figment of the users imagination. All users the user talked to, including Notch's email reply, could simply be the creation of the player's mind. this would also explain Notch's rejection of the canon, as showing the story is all in the user's head.

Herobrine is near-certainly inspired by Slenderman, who is also the inspiration behind Endermen.

The most popular theories among users is that Herobrine is a ghost. Other theories can involve him being a higher being, a demon, a bad omen, or the suggestions in the Canonical explaination. However, most of these are written as if Minecraft itself is reality, rather than from the player controlling the avatar within the game. Herobrine canonically has not appeared in real life, and remains confined to technology.


Herobrine is a human entity, with the exact same skin as "Steve". However Herobrine has bright white eyes that glow in the darkness, as if they are a light source.

Herobrine can sometimes be seen holding tools, such as pickaxes. This stems from the widespread community belief that Herobrine was a Miner. Usually, his hands are empty.

Herobrine is often portrayed by the community as a dead miner, killed long before the player's arrival. His appearance, however, does not suggest either of these are the case. But, with Minecraft's abandoned mineshafts and strongholds, as well as Mining being a large part of Minecraft, the gameplay of the game has shaped public perception of the character to suit this persona.


Herobrine is said to have the ability to run in Minecraft. This is indicated by the original source. The brocast stream portrays him as almost always stood up straight, with arms to his sides, watching the player. He is not seen to physically move within the brocast stream, but he moves location during the stream. It is unknown if Herobrine can swim, use Minecarts, Boats or nether portals. Like most ghosts, it's likely he simply has no use for most methods of transportation.

Much like angered Endermen, Herobrine is widely believed to move via teleportation. Nearly all of the community actually reject the canon, describing him as running.

Herobrine cannot fly, and no variation states this as "canonical". However, he appears to be able to glide. Which is to say, moving in directions without physically moving, while not moving upwards. This is usually evident in retreating back into fog.

Herobrine is often portrayed with his head crooked or twitching. This is likely due to him being seen moreso as a virus/creepy entity in Minecraft, rather than a ghost.

Interaction within Minecraft

Herobrine is able to build and destroy in Minecraft. The original image states the player found long 2x2 tunnels, small pyramids in the middle of the ocean and trees with no leaves. The full extent of Herobrine's building capacity is unknown, but the given examples indicate Herobrine has awareness of shape, and can differentiate materials from each other.

Herobrine seems to solely target Human players. He did not seem to interact with any other mobs nearby in the brocast stream, some of which were Spiders and Zombies. His canonical relation to further mobs added since he appeared is a complete mystery. His interactions with other mobs is not mentioned in the original image. While there is a chicken present in the image, Herobrine does not seem interested in it at all, and is solely focused on the player.

Herobrine has, on occasion, interacted with other mobs. He is sometimes able to take control of passive animals, and revive/spawn undead mobs

Herobrine seems able to drastically change his environments with no viable source of resources to do so. Most expansions to his abilities involves cobblestone placing, dungeon building, using redstone torches and setting traps. He exhibits all the symptoms of a Creative player in the game.

Herobrine seems unable to enter The Nether, or The End.


Herobrine's intentions vary, but they usually fall under two categories. One variation is based on pure community interpritation, while the other, based on the canon.

In the Stalker variation, he stalks the player, disappearing if approached. This variation is derived from his origins.

In the Vengeful variation, he tries to ensnare the player in traps, presumably to steal their items. He waits for people to enter his dungeons, then either seals them inside, or teleports behind them, presumably killing them. Some rarer variations of this particular version says he breaks the player's creations, and steals their items from chests. This variation is likely inspired by griefers and trolls.

Future update

Notch posted on twitter about the subject of Herobrine, early in his popularity boost.

RavenBurga Is "he" a real entity ingame or is it just a successful_troll.swf?
Notch It's not real. =) But it might be soon!

This confirmed there was no Herobrine, but suggested Notch planned to add him at a later date.

At Minecraftcon 2010, Notch confirmed Herobrine will be in the game, probably in a "seecret friday update".

Due to increased drama surrounding the Herobrine page, a wiki administrator asked notch over IRC if Herobrine would be added:

12:25 Kizzycocoa [...] is there any confirmation on his upcoming existence in MC?
12:27 Notch i have no plans of adding herobrine as is, but I do like the rumors, haha

This shows Notch has decided against adding Herobrine. However, the fact that "as is" suggested that something like Herobrine may be added, fuelling beliefs he will be added even further. So, once again, the same user asked for clarification

8:09 AM Oct 20th Kizzycocoa [...] the entire community is getting frustrated by the hero-spam
8:56 AM Oct 20th Notch i have no plans of adding herobrine.[1]

Posizione corrente su Herobrine

Da quando lo sviluppo di Minecraft è passato da Notch a Jeb_, le possibilità di un aggiunta di Herobrine dentro un aggiornamento sono diventate meno chiare. Il 22 di Agosto, Dinnerbone, uno degli sviluppatori di Minecraft, ha tweetato:

Dinnerbone.png Nessuno di noi ha piani di aggiungere Herobrine. Ho dei dubbi che questo cambierà mai.
~ Dinnerbone on Herobrine[2]

Questo conferma che Herobrine non è mai stato visto in una versione ufficiale di Minecraft, e questo conferma che ogni "trovata" di Herobrine nel Minecraft vanilla nei prossimi aggiornamenti è completamente infondato.


Mojang media appearences

Herobrine has appeared in official Mojang images as an "in" joke.

His first appearance in official Mojang images started with the Wedding Weekend, in which he was just behind Notch's Minecraft character. His second appearance was in the Minecon header, where, yet again, Herobrine was just behind Notch.

Herobrine also appeared in the the official Minecon trailer, created by Hatfilms, at 3:11. However, as users were asked to submit their skins to appear in the trailer, this is likely not intentional.

Herobrine was also spotted at the Xbox section of Minecon. He was on the board, behind the Xbox stations.

Some users point to this as proof of his future addition. However, there is no proof he is being portrayed for anything other than baiting fans.

Herobrine also appeared in Minecraft's Facebook page, the image being the Cover Photo. It is notable to state the image was created by the fan for a competition, with the theme of "summer picnic", hence his inclusion may not be fully intentional.


Il primo stato sulla rimozione di Herobrine è stato durante la Beta 1.6.6. Era in se stesso uno scherzo, riferendosi al fatto che Notch aveva rimosso il codice essenziale degli Umani rendendoli non spawnabili nel gioco. È stato un ulteriore motivo per trollare la community, dando a Herobrine lo stato di icona della community.

Qua sotto ecco una tavola che mostra quando Herobrine è stato "rimosso" nelle versioni.

Versione Ragione
Beta 1.6.6 Rimozione del codice essenziale degli Umani, oltre che scherzo per la community.
Beta 1.7 Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community
Beta 1.7_01 Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community
Beta 1.8 "Adventure Update" Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community
1.0 "Full Release" Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community
1.2 Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community. Notato solamente sulla versione Tumblr del changelog, visibile attraverso il launcher.
1.2.5 Rimosse tutte le "entità fantasma". La voce del changelog dice: "Rimosse tutte le entità fantasma sotto il comando di Lord Herobrine".
1.3.1 Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community
1.4.2 Nessuna ragione per questa voce/Scherzo per la community. Notato solamente sulla versione Tumblr del changelog, visibile attraverso il launcher.

Herobrine non è mai stato "rimosso" in nessuno snapshot o Pre-release.

Changelog Xbox

Nell'aggiornamento di Luglio per Xbox, Herobrine è stato rimosso da Minecraft per la prima volta. Sembra quasi che gli sviluppatori della versione per Xbox si stiano divertendo a continuare il gioco iniziato dalla Mojang.

Messaggi nel gioco

Nel SMP, se un giocatore veniva ucciso da una freccia sparata da un dispenser si leggeva sul messaggio di morte "[Nome giocatore] è stato colpito da Herobrine". Questo riferimento a Herobrine è nient'altroche un mero riferimento. Sembra anche che sia stato rimosso.

Xbox 360

Sulla Xbox 360, Herobrine è menzionato in uno dei messaggi splash.[Screenshot richiesto]

Herobrine fa parte di uno skin pack, rilasciato su Xbox360.[Screenshot richiesto]
Dopo l'aggiunta di questa skin, gli "avvistamenti" sono aumentati drasticamente. Ovviamente, tutti gli Herobrine sulla versione per Xbox sono dei semplici giocatori che usano la skin di Herobrine.

Reazioni della Mojang

La Mojang ha raramente fatto degli stati riguardo Herobrine.


Notchface.png The Herobrine stuff is awesome and kind of scary at the same time. It really shows how little control a content producer has over the content.

I've publicly told people there's never been any such thing as Herobrine, and that I don't have any dead brothers, and that letting too many animals die in lava is a fool proof way to summon him but that you don't need to be afraid of him. He only means well, he's looking out for you, trying to warn you of the dangers you can't see. There certainly are NO physical manifestations of Herobrine that will sneak out of your computer if you leave Minecraft running at night, looming over you as you sleep with his pale eyes inches away from your face, as he tries to shout at you to wake up. Sometimes you wake up with a jolt, and he's gone, and all that lingers is the memory and faint echo of his wordless screaming. Of course it was just a dream. There's no way a morally dubious ghost with a god complex could at any point decide to haunt the children who play my game "for their own good", as there is NO SUCH THING. etc etc

  • Quando si è chiesto sulla wiki dell'implementazione dell'Audio Player, e dei limite che poteva avere, C418 ha risposto che esistono delle prove di Herobrine nel disco 11. Ha fatto uno stato in cui ha detto che non può dire molto a riguardo del disco 11, ma ha detto che non ha niente a che fare con Herobrine.
