We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

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.
Marc Watson[4][5]

Nathan 'Dinnerbone' Adams is a game developer at Mojang AB who worked on Minecraft, Minecraft: Pocket Edition,[6] and its launcher. A member of the Bukkit team, Adams was hired by Mojang on 28 February 2012 to develop the mod API.[7][8] His first day at the Mojang office was 27 March 2012,[9] 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.[10][11] His Twitter avatar is flipped[12] and his user model, as well as any mob named "Dinnerbone", will be rendered upside-down.[11]

In October 2015 he announced that he would be "taking a break from Minecraft PC development for a few months."[13] Later, in February 2016, he further elaborated that though he would continue on other projects at Mojang, he had left the Minecraft team.[14][15] During this time, he worked on the 2017 native launcher. On February 6, 2017, Dinnerbone confirmed he had rejoined the Minecraft team.[16]

Biography[edit | edit source]

Nathan Adams is originally from Shrewsbury, United Kingdom.[17] He says he learned programming through creating MSN bots at age 10.[3][18] After finishing secondary school, Dinnerbone was rejected from college,[19] 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.[20] Aleksandra Zajac (MissMarzenia) is his fiancée.[21] He announced on August 24, 2016 that he and Aleksandra were expecting a baby boy.[22][23] The baby was later born on October 2, 2016.[24]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Dinnerbone is red-green colorblind, the most common type of colorblindness.[17][25]
  • Dinnerbone's username is a tribute to an old friend of his named Teabone (T-bone).[17][26]
  • Dinnerbone's favorite color is blue and his favorite foods are lasagna and pizza.[17]
  • Dinnerbone hates fish.[27]
  • Dinnerbone doesn't drink alcohol.[28]
  • 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.
