Dinnerbone is a super nice guy, and adds lots of fancy features to Minecraft. He wears ribbons in his hair, and smells of rich mahogany and leather-bound books. He is the co-president of the country of Bonerstan, along with Marc. If you kill him in Minecraft, he drops a kitten. Correction: he gently sets down a kitten, because why would he ever DROP a kitten? He's way too nice for that.

Nathan 'Dinnerbone' Adams is a game developer at Mojang AB currently working on Minecraft. A member of the Bukkit team, Adams was hired by Mojang on 28 February 2012 to develop the mod API.[6][7] His first day at the Mojang office was 27 March 2012,[8] shortly before the first development snapshots for version 1.3.1.

A common trope attributed to Dinnerbone is that he is commonly displayed as being upside-down.[9][10] His Twitter avatar is flipped[11] and his user model, as well as any mob named "Dinnerbone", will be rendered upside-down.[10]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Nathan Adams is originally from Shrewsbury, United Kingdom.[12] He says he learned programming through creating MSN bots at age 10.[3][13] After finishing secondary school, Dinnerbone was rejected from college,[14] so he found a job with a tiny web development company but was made redundant after a few years. Shortly after starting Bukkit, Dinnerbone was hired by Curse where he worked until joining Mojang.[15]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dinnerbone's username is a tribute to an old friend of his named Teabone (T-bone).[12][17]
  • Dinnerbone's favorite color is blue and his favorite foods are lasagna and pizza.[12]
  • Dinnerbone hates fish.[18]
  • Dinnerbone doesn't drink alcohol.[19]
  • If you name any mob with a name tag with the name "Dinnerbone", the animal will flip upside down. This naturally extends to himself. Same logic applies for naming a mob "Grumm".
  • Dinnerbone can sometimes be found on Mindcrack with other famous youtubers.
