What must be built to summon Herobrine, in the Herobrine Mod

Herobrine is the subject of a community-made "creepy-pasta". He is a human entity, but with white eyes, and often described as a dead miner. Herobrine is not a character, but rather superstition. Notch said he was never implemented, saying Herobrine was removed in the beta 1.6.6 through 1.9 final release and a subtle to stop the skins that have been made of him but people still claim to see him to this day.

In a possible attempt to scare people, the story raised high amounts of commotion on forums, but was later revealed as a prank of the popular forum and website, 4chan.org.

Stories like this are called "creepy pastas", stories made to scare the reader while they read them late at night.

There are accounts of phantom players without name plates, but these are more probable to be just mob glitches. It was said, however, that Herobrine would appear in two different "forms". One was the "Stalker", Herobrine would have stalked the player, and the player would be able to see Herobrine if the person places his or her render distance to "tiny". Once spotted, Herobrine would disappear. Another was the "Dead Constructor". He would create various different hints of where he is, such as trees with no leaves, gigantic pyramids and 2x2 tunnels, both lit with redstone torches.

Herobrine has also appeared as an antagonist in Minecraft books, movies, and videos.

Trivia

  • As an homage to this creepy-pasta, Mojang AB includes "Removed Herobrine" in the list of changes for each Minecraft update. In reality, this note does not pertain to any actual changes in the update.
  • Those responsible for the Herobrine hoax first claimed (falsely) to have seen Herobrine during Minecraft's Alpha stages.
