This feature is exclusive to Java Edition.

Since the beginning of Minecraft's development, there have been a number of features that were mentioned by developers at Mojang Studios. These features are either currently planned and have not yet appeared in a development version, or have simply been dropped entirely.

Note that this page only documents features that were mentioned, but are not yet in the game. Features in development versions are described on the parent version page.

Planned[edit]

For upcoming versions to the game, see Planned versions § Java Edition.

These features are planned to come to Minecraft sometime in the future.

Combat changes[edit]

A new combat system is currently in development, containing changes such as the player only being able to attack when their weapon is fully drawn.

Fletching table functionality[edit]

Fletching tables are set to gain functionality in a later update. Originally, this was planned for "the next major themed update".[1] Later, it was stated that functionality wasn't a guarantee for 1.16.[2] Later, it was confirmed that fletching tables wouldn’t be gaining functionality in 1.16.[3] It is unknown whether it will be planned for 1.17.

Voted updates[edit]

The desert and savanna biome reworks are the two remaining biome reworks from the MINECON Earth 2018 biome chooser vote. Both biomes are promised to be updated in a future update:[4][5]

  • Deserts will be given palm trees, oases, and meerkats.
  • Savannas will be given baobab trees, termites, and ostriches.

The badlands and swamp biome reworks are the two remaining biome reworks from the MINECON Live 2019 biome vote. Both biomes are promised to be updated in a future update:

  • Badlands will be given vultures, tumbleweed, and a new cacti based on the Prickly Pear.
  • Swamps will be given frogs, mangrove trees, and boats with chests.

The Moobloom and the Iceologer are the two remaining mobs from the Minecraft Live 2020 mob vote. Both mobs could come in an unknown future update as stated by LadyAgnes.[6]

Super Fancy graphics[edit]

Docm77 confirmed in a tweet that sometime in the future, a new graphics setting will be added to Minecraft called "super fancy". It is unknown whether it is the "Fabulous!" graphics setting added in 1.16 Pre-release 1 or another new one. This could also be a reference to the upcoming ray tracing functionality being added to Minecraft or the scrapped Super Duper Graphics Pack.[7]

Blaze3D[edit]

A screenshot by Searge showing features in development, including "1.15/blaze3d".[8]

A new Java Edition rendering pipeline called Blaze3D has been confirmed many times by Searge.[8][more information needed] There are also many references to this system in the game files, although it has not been functionally implemented.

Phasing out of NBT-based crafting recipes[edit]

In Java Edition 1.14, numerous new blocks were implemented as replacements for certain "complex" crafting recipes, with the replaced crafting recipes relying on NBT data. This included moving inventory tool repair to the grindstone, banner modification to the loom, and map modification to the cartography table. However, several more NBT based crafting recipes still exist, and these are planned to be phased out.[9] Certain blocks that may be added in the future to further this goal include a dedicated fireworks customization block.

In Java Edition 1.14.3, tool repair crafting recipes were reimplemented.

Full split of liquids from blocks[edit]

Java Edition 1.13 added waterlogging, marking the start of this separation. An in-development screenshot showing water occupying leaves and flowers, referred to as having "no water blocks", was released in 2018.[10] However, water and lava still exist as blocks, and so far only water sources can occupy other blocks through the waterlogged block state; flowing water and bubble columns cannot occupy other blocks and still and flowing lava cannot occupy other blocks at all.

Having water only occupy one side of a block like a glass pane, but not the other, is also something that has been considered.[11]

Frogs and tadpoles[edit]

On the Minecraft Feedback site Mojang announced that the idea for frogs and tadpoles would be implemented. The player who suggested the idea said that players could get poisoned by hitting them with bare hands, and that they would drop frog legs as another way to make potions of leaping. Frogs were announced at MINECON Live 2019, as part of the swamp biome update. However, tadpoles were not mentioned and no specific mechanics were given, so it's unknown how similar they will be to the feedback suggestion.

Partially implemented[edit]

These features had been shown by a Mojang staff member, but had no further development or were canceled shortly after.

Biomes[edit]

Biome Characteristics Image
Sky A hidden biome before Java Edition Beta 1.9 Prerelease 4, this biome was exclusive to, and the sole biome of the Sky Dimension. It would generate floating islands with oceans of air surrounding them. Trees were uncommon. No weather occurred here. It had small patches of snow, although it would not accumulate again. It had green with some extra blue hue for foliage colors. This biome was introduced in Java Edition Beta 1.6 along with the Sky Dimension itself. While the Sky Dimension was removed, its biome and associated terrain generation were repurposed for use in the End. Sky Dimension 1.jpg
Ice Desert (corner case biome) A biome in the code before Java Edition Beta 1.8 that was supposed to generate at maximum coldness and dryness, but did not actually generate due to bugs. It was a biome of sand with snow on top of it and had snowfall and ice. Ice Desert.jpg

Colored Wood Planks[edit]

Original image of proposed colored wood planks released by Dinnerbone.

Dinnerbone briefly thought about implementing colored wood planks, releasing a test image on his Twitter page. This however never got implemented, as can be seen from the following quotes. The idea was eventually replaced with stained clay.

Taking a small break from launcherstuffs to doodle around with funstuffs. Would this be of use to anybody? http://dinnerbone.com/media/uploads/2013-04/screenshots/Minecraft_13w16b_2013-04-24_19-54-57.png

Dinnerbone[12]

Sorry, I meant "wood this be of use". I totally missed that pun.

Nathan Adams Mojang avatar.png

Arbitrary response guage: 30% "please no" 80% "yes please". Yes, that's 110%. I don't even know.

Dinnerbone[13]

I'm just doodling around, I'm not sure that I can actually add it because it'd want stairs/etc too, but it's fun to investigate these things

Okay okay, no coloured wood. How about something completely different? http://dinnerbone.com/media/uploads/2013-04/screenshots/Minecraft_13w16b_2013-04-24_23-04-32.png

Dirt slab[edit]

A dirt slab.
The dirt slabs, replacing all the dirt (not grass) blocks.

Before stone slabs were added to 0.26, Notch ran a test of dirt slabs. In the test, they replaced dirt blocks, so that dirt surface without grass was half a block lower than grass. However, dirt slabs failed to dress cliff edges, caves, and ravines nicely. Because of this, they were never added to the actual game and were only mentioned once.[15] They replaced all dirt blocks and did not grow grass on top similar to coarse dirt.

In the announcements for 1.17, a feature called the brush was mentioned, which can remove the height of gravel and dirt blocks. This does not impact worldgen however, so it is not a full implementation of dirt slabs.

Sky Dimension[edit]

A plain sky dimension.

The Sky Dimension was a planned dimension, intended to be the opposite of the Nether. It could be accessed using hacks, but portals to the Sky Dimension were never implemented. The idea was ultimately scrapped[16][17][18][19][20][21] and its code was reused to make the End. The End has a purple sky, no clouds, and the floating islands are made entirely of end stone.

With the addition of the Buffet functionality in 1.13 snapshot 18w15a, this can be distantly recreated by using the "Floating Islands" option.

Mentioned[edit]

These features were mentioned at one point, but later abandoned or their current status is unknown. Note that some of these features were mentioned by developers who either no longer work at Mojang, or no longer work on Minecraft.

Mobs[edit]

There have been several cases of mobs being mentioned by developers as potential candidates for being added to the game, such as a 2012 mention of birds, fish and tree animals by Jon Kågström, to "make the game seem more alive",[22] with parrots and four different fish mobs were added in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Hamsters were also mentioned by Notch in 2010 as a brief, mysterious, unserious suggestion as to what could have been in the then-upcoming Seecret Friday update.[23]

Notch mentioned prefix mobs in a Brocraft stream. He gave examples of mobs such as "Burning Spiders, Giant Zombies, and Cobble Creepers." Some prefix mobs have been added in the form of cave spiders, charged creepers, strays, husks, drowned, and other mob variants. Giant zombies have technically been added, but are currently unused. In the 3D Shareware April Fools update, the ORDER.txt jokingly mentions "11 new enemy variants including Buff Crepper and Evilshroom II" for a fake game: "MineCraft 3D: Deeper and darker."

Mob A, Monster of the Ocean Depths.

Notch commented that Sea Monsters are a possibility on Minecast, 7/21/2010. He particularly noted the possibility of sharks, though Mojang has since then denied that they will be added. In a Minecon vote in 2017, a sea creature was one of the options. It was known as "mob A" or "Monster of the Ocean Depths." It would have spawned in deep water and attack players with a tentacle-like tongue and pull players down to drown them.

Two other creatures in the Minecon vote of 2017 were given. One was "mob D, The Hovering Inferno." It would have looked like a large blaze with shields instead of rods, and would have spawned with groups of blazes in the nether. The other mob was "mob C, The Great Hunger." It would have had a large mouth capable of removing enchantments from items and would have camouflaged itself by entering the ground with it's mouth open upwards. Mob B/Monster of the Night Skies was the phantom which has been added.[24]

In 2018, a biome vote was held between which biome should be the priority to update next. The updated biomes would also come with brand new mobs. There were three options: Desert, Savanna, or Taiga. The taiga won the vote and would be the first biome to be updated. The taiga included the Fox, while the Desert would have included the Meerkat. The Savanna biome would have included the Ostrich. There has been no information as to whether the Desert and Savanna will be updated.

Development of a male mob which may have had no clothes(!) was also mentioned by Dinnerbone in 2012,[25][26][27] but this is not currently being worked on. This could have been the removed pigman, though Jon Kågström hinted at a monkey-like creature which could have been this.

Reindeer were another mob acknowledged and suggested initially for Christmas 2015.[28] Minecraft Earth version 0.6.0 added the Jolly Llama which is supposed to represent a reindeer.

A mob which camouflages with its environment was a concept considered by Jeb when designing the shulker, which was originally one of the mob's mechanics during development - the mob would camouflage with the surroundings, but due to difficulties with the code and rendering, he decided to abandon this element of the mob. He stated however that it may happen in the future.[29]

In 2017, a jocular suggestion regarding adding more types of illagers was posted. One of them, the Pillager, has been implemented in Java Edition 1.14. In Minecraft Dungeons, there is a mob in a DLC called the Chillager.[30][31][32][33]

A more recent developer hinted about adding mobs involved adding seals/sea lions and/or killer whales /orcas.[34] This may be related to dolphins, which were added about a month later in 18w15a.

Soul Fire Blazes were talked about by Jeb. He stated that he doesn't want to make another mob variant, but that it would be interesting to make a mob connected to soul fire.[35]

Red Dragon[edit]

Notch revealed during the 8th Seecret Friday Update[dubious] that he would add dragons, one being the ender dragon, the other being red dragons.[36] Jeb informed participants of his AMA on Reddit that he would add red dragons, but was unsure exactly how.[37]

Dragons in the Overworld
Dragons were originally planned for the Overworld

When questioned about how ender dragons phase through blocks, Notch went on record saying that dragons in the Overworld would eventually be added. However, the red dragon has not subsequently been added.

On October 22, 2013, Dinnerbone tweeted that the red dragon is "shelved" and not in development.

Nathan Adams Mojang avatar.png

It was never promised, we have no plans to add a red dragon at this time.

Dinnerbone [38]

Later, on December 15, 2013, a Dinnerbone post on Reddit indicated his belief that red dragons likely will be implemented at some point:

I'm sure one day there will be. Not right now though.

Dinnerbone[39]

Audio loops[edit]

Loops were unused sounds, found in the game files, and were possibly meant for when the player is in a specific type of location (i.e., in caves, forests, the ocean and beside a waterfall).

Trees[edit]

Several features regarding trees have been mentioned throughout the game's history.

Notch mentioned branches in a blog post during Indev. The addition of sideways logs seems to be an alternative for branches.[40] Implemented on chorus trees and Acacia trees, but not on ordinary trees.

Patrick Geuder has expressed a desire to see cherry trees in the game.[41] However, no mention of them being potentially added has ever surfaced.

The implementation of fallen trees (like those currently in Bedrock Edition)[42] has also been brought up, but appears to never have been actually undertaken beyond this mention in Java Edition.

Three tree species were mentioned at the biome votes for MINECON 2018 and 2019, namely palm, baobab and mangrove. However, all three were overwhelmingly voted against and are yet to appear in game despite being promised implementation later.

Cave and underground features[edit]

Many features relating to the underground and caves have been mentioned historically, but are yet to be seen in-game. Some suggestions which were approved by Mojang include rainbow crystalline caves[43] and cave maps, considered "an interesting idea" by Notch.[44] 1.13 added buffet worlds, which has an option for cave-like generation.

More ores and cave types was a general target proposed by Dinnerbone in late 2013.[45] Since this post, flooded underwater caves have been implemented, along with 1.16 adding ancient debris and nether gold ore some six years later.

On Minecraft Live 2020, Caves & Cliffs update was announced, which is planned to bring more cave types, better generation for old caves, Amethyst Crystals and Copper.

Friends list[edit]

Notch mentioned on his blog, The Word of Notch, that friends lists would be added after Beta 1.8.[46] The Minecraft documentary team of 2 Player Productions filmed a Keynote roadmap, containing these lines.[47][48] Kristoffer mentioned on Twitter that he is currently working on friends lists for Scrolls, then for other Mojang games. These will be available for players with Mojang accounts. At MineCon 2012, Jeb stated that it would be a large implementation on the server-side and will be used for all Mojang games, and that is a big project.[49][50]
With the release of 1.16.4, the social interactions menu functions somewhat like a friends menu but not exactly.

Inventory changes[edit]

An inventory rewrite was originally added in the snapshot 14w17a for Java Edition 1.8, but a roadblock was hit and they had to shelve it before the release of 1.8.[51] Other changes to the inventory have been mentioned, including spectators can now look at people's inventory, visible health/armor bar on all players,[52] seeing players' GUI when spectating from their POV[53] and the return of shift-double-clicking.[54][55]

Lua scripting[edit]

Lua Scripting was a feature mentioned by Notch as a way to create server-side modifications.[56] The server would be able to create custom commands, assign certain server functions to blocks, and create user groups. Players would not have to download scripts within or outside of the client, and therefore no client-side modifications will be necessary. Notch said that he wanted Lua to be an extension for Minecraft, but did not want Lua to turn Minecraft into a game engine.

Lua scripting has been further hinted at by Searge.[8]

This can actually be recreated using things like Spigot or Bukkit.

Nether features[edit]

Multiple features relating to the Nether have been proposed and acknowledged, such as utilizing the space above the Nether ceiling for something else,[57] non-rectangular nether portals,[58] and nether portals placing players in front if possible.[59]

During the development of the Nether Update, other ideas were discussed, such as dyeable nether portals, which were dismissed as not being priority by Jeb,[60] as well as in-game hints on how to access the Nether (partially implemented with naturally generated ruined portals and fully with the how to play feature in Bedrock Edition).[61]

Rare tools/weapons[edit]

Dinnerbone said on Twitter he would like to add weapons/tools that cannot be crafted, and only obtained by treasure chests/trading, etc. For example, bows with faster drawback (somewhat implemented with the addition of Quick Charge), boots that increase health, or night vision helmets. However, the attribute system has to be finished first.[62][63][64][65]

Frost Walker and Mending were implemented as treasure enchantments in 1.9 as well as the Curses of Binding and Vanishing in 1.11, and tridents have been implemented in 1.13 as drowned-exclusive weapons, somewhat implementing this feature. In 1.16, treasure enchantments have also been made less accessible (therefore more rare) via nerfing AFK fishing, and the new piglin-exclusive enchantment Soul Speed exists.

Resource packs[edit]

Grum mentioned that there may be easier customization of chat and sheep colors.[66]

Since 1.16, the "color" tag in raw NBT text has been able to accept hexadecimal colors:

/tellraw @s {"text":"proof","color":"#FF0000"}

Ryan Holtz stated that he wanted to improve the rendering system to allow for customizable models and animations.[67][68] Dinnerbone later stated that player models would not be able to be changed.[69]

Seasons[edit]

Dinnerbone mentioned on Twitter that he was experimenting with adding seasons, and varying the length of day and night according to season. He also mentioned it during MineCon 2013.[70][71] Seasons may include changes in color of tree leaves and may also be tied to real time.[72][73]

Spike block[edit]

Spikes received a mention in mid-2009 by Notch in a blog post.[74] These were originally planned for Java Edition Beta 1.7, working by extending and retracting spikes (and making them more "spike pistons" than anything), but were replaced by sticky pistons. On May 28, 2012, Dinnerbone stated that he'd like to add spike blocks, but is unsure of how to implement them.[75] The upcoming Caves & Cliffs update will implement stalagmites, which from the demo footage appear to damage mobs and players that fall on them.

Steel[edit]

Multiple references to steel were made early on in the game's development. Notch had stated that it could be made using coal and iron ore,[76] and that it could be used for armor and weapons more powerful than iron.[77] In-game, the flint and steel is crafted using raw iron.

Workbench (Plugin API)[edit]

Main article: Add-on § History

The Plugin API,[78][79] dubbed "Workbench", is a feature that allows mod developers to easily add more content to the game. In contrast to mods, plugins will not require any alteration of the minecraft.jar file itself, although they will also be slightly limited in their feature set.[80][81] The Bukkit team will help make the official Plugin API.[82]

Off-hand changes[edit]

Changes with the off-hand slot added in Java Edition 1.9 were planned on being added to Minecraft sometime in the future.[83] Specifically, the player would no longer be able to attack or place blocks with any item in their off-hand slot, similar to Bedrock Edition. However, players would still be able to hold items in the off-hand slot, which still made the off-hand useful for maps and such. Also, blocking would still be able to be activated if the player is holding a shield in their off-hand. However, this regression was later retracted due to massive community backlash.

Brief mentions[edit]

These features were briefly mentioned, but no further information was given after that.

General features[edit]

More specific features[edit]

Mentioned in 2009
  • In early development, Notch mentioned two more gamemodes, Team Survival Mode and Fortress Mode, which would include the ability to play Capture the Flag[87]
  • Cobweb blocks being created by spiders[88]
Mentioned in 2010
  • Animated swinging doors[89]
  • Colliding clouds[90][91]
  • Server portals[92]
  • Moon[93]
  • Turnips[23]
  • Dungeon Mode: Same as Survival Mode, except players can't craft or modify the world. Planned to have been used to play missions on pre-made maps.[94] The later-implemented Adventure Mode functions similarly.
  • "Clan" mode.[94]
  • Server-side scripting.[94]
  • Land claim flags: planting a flag (possibly costs gold in Survival mode) claims an area of land. No monsters can spawn or die from age in that area, and only selected players can build in that area.[94]
  • Smoke block: would be generated by fire, be passable, cast shadows, float upwards and disappear after a short time.[94] 1.14 added campfires, which generate smoke particles similar to what was mentioned, but they are not blocks nor cast shadows.
  • Gravity: all blocks except possibly obsidian would be affected by gravity. Floating islands would need obsidian veins to stay afloat.[94] Notch later stated that he disliked the idea.[95]
  • More crafting templates: arrows, food, armor, etc.[94] (Possibly added in Java Edition 1.14.)
  • In-game anti-cheat: make the server check for flying, no clip and increased speed. Add those options to the client, but only enable if the server says it's okay.[94]
  • Make moss grow on rock (likely means that mossy cobblestone would spread to cobblestone)[94]
Mentioned in 2011
Mentioned in 2012
  • Vertical redstone[101]
  • Ability to design village buildings.[102] Partially implemented with structure blocks.
  • Silk Touch yielding double slab blocks[103]
  • Ability to pause the game in multiplayer, but only for ops. Users will then get to chat until the game is back.[104][105]
  • Minecarts usable as boats[106]
  • More colors and texture pack customizations of maps[107]
  • Flower pots breaking when hit by arrows.[108] This has been added for chorus flowers.

    Minecart with dispenser,[111] the image may have just been showcasing the custom tile displays in minecarts which were added in the next snapshot, 13w02a.
  • Dinnerbone's original demonstration of the .mcmeta format for resource packs contained a sample properties file for fonts to determine character size and spacing.[112] Despite the game code containing the code to read the files, it never actually uses them leaving character width and spacing to be determined dynamically.
  • Enchanted items apply attributes on use.[113]
  • Adding more places to display scoreboard scores.[114]
  • Colored lighting[115]
  • A better UI for server admins/ops, inspired by the twitch user moderation menu.[116]
  • A resource pack-related feature that allows improved Russian font display[117]
  • Better construction analysis[118]
  • Partially implemented: A new system that could alter weapon behavior.[119]
    • This has been partially implemented in Java Edition 15w34a, with the implementation of attack speed
  • Easier way to implement terrain changes[84]
  • Portable light (e.g. holding a torch in your hand which provides light).[120]
  • A hug animation[121]. Emotes have been implemented in Bedrock Edition, including a hug animation available for purchase.
  • Blocks of charcoal, mentioned as something that would need to be implemented as to not complicate the existence of coal blocks[122]
Mentioned in 2014
  • Improved camera controls[123]
  • Dinnerbone has stated he has an "Ultimate Plan" with endermites that might include the dragon egg.[124]
  • Rewriting the key bind system.[125]
  • Building a custom sound system.[126]
  • Sheep showing their color when shorn, like the Bedrock Edition[127]
  • Multithreaded terrain generation rendering.[128]
  • Fixes to chunk loading.[129][130]
  • JSON support on signs[131] and possibly implementing a way to "make it work in survival".[132] Searge later said "The plan is to eventually have every text that can be displayed on the screen use the text component system, then using § won't be necessary anymore."[133]
  • Another rabbit skin[134][135]
  • Ryan Holtz originally mentioned adding a slider for cloud height,[136] though he later stated the idea was controversial among the team so he scrapped it.[137]
  • Using the killer rabbit killing mobs for something.[138]
  • Mesa temple[139]
  • A marker entity.[140][141]
  • OAuth[142]
  • Being able to make the world border's center slowly move[143]
Mentioned in 2015
  • Corn[144]
  • In game lore[145]. Implemented in the April Fools' update Java Edition 20w14∞, where books written by "§kDeepest Lore" would appear in End Ship chests, containing short, obfuscated and unserious "orders".
  • Making it so shields are used to block attacks from the side the shield is held on.[146]
  • Allowing mobs to have additional random skins, similar to the kind of variation seen in horses, cats and rabbits.[147]
  • Giving /clone the ability to rotate and mirror structures.[148][149] Structure blocks were later given the ability to rotate structures.
  • Minecart improvements after/in 1.10[150]
  • Improvements to the GUI. These would allow the glowing effect to be seen on the inventory player model.[151]
Mentioned in 2016
  • Phasing out the minecart with furnace.[152]
  • New musician villager that trades note blocks, jukeboxes, and music discs.[153]
  • A Dragon Head banner pattern[154]
  • If a piston gets powered and is unable to push, showing a smoke particle effect and playing a small "clunk" sound[155]
  • If the bow used to craft a dispenser is enchanted, making the arrows fired from the dispenser to act accordingly[156]
Mentioned in 2017
  • Ability to edit the skybox and biome/foliage/light colors in resource packs[157]
  • A set of prismarine blocks with a color scheme matching that of the Elder Guardian, similarly to how regular prismarine imitates normal Guardians.[158]
Mentioned in 2018
  • Toggleable enchantment glows[159]
  • Data-driven world generation using json files, allowing for custom structures. Partially added in snapshot 20w28a with the addition of experimental support for custom biomes.[160]

Mentioned in 2019
  • Making beds muse block models again[162]
  • A crawling animation[163]
  • Illusioners in raids[164]
  • The early 1.15 snapshots included textures for a crystallized honey item and wax block, however, these were allegedly not meant to make it into the game in the first place. Wax block could have been a placeholder for Honeycomb as it serves similar purposes to wax as of 20w45a. The word "wax" is also applied when infusing honeycomb within a certain state of a copper block.
  • Nether Portal like thing that will teleport the player to the Moon or Mars[165]
Mentioned in 2020
  • Nether boats, presumably made out of the new wood or netherite to use in lava.[166] Striders serve a similar purpose.
  • World height limit getting increased.[167]
Mentioned in unknown years
  • Mob-spawning will be more balanced.[citation needed]
  • On Minecraft Feedback Mojang announced that they would implement the idea for making hopper and chest minecarts able to ride boats.[citation needed] The idea was so that it would be easier to transport items across water.

Joke features[edit]

Snapshot 12marc40awesome, a joke snapshot by Marc Watson.
Skis texture

Notch and Mojang Studios employees have frequently joked about adding various features to the game.

  • Searge jokingly stated that due to the fact that people didn't dislike the changes in the 15w42a snapshot, he would add a fuel requirement to crafting tables.[168]
  • Koalas in tanks riding on planes with laser rifles was jokingly added to the "maybe later" list by Searge.[169]
  • Hot dogs.[170][171]
  • Herobrine. In every new major Minecraft update like Halloween Update, Adventure Update, Pretty Scary Update, Redstone Update, Horse Update, The Update That Changed The World, The Bountiful Update, The Combat Update, The Frostburn Update, The Exploration Update, The World of Color Update, Update Aquatic, Village & Pillage, Buzzy Bees, and Nether Update it says "removed Herobrine", but Herobrine was never implemented. This has also appeared in the changelog for Scrolls version 0.103.0.[172]
  • When Hardcore mode was announced, a joke screenshot of "Ultra Hardcore Mode" was shown, where death would revoke an account's premium status.[173]
  • Jeb joked about adding chips if 100% of the community agreed on what type the chips would be.[174]
  • Jeb joked about adding more types of dragons. In response, MissMarzenia joked "DRAGONS CONFIRMED."[175]
  • Marc joked about adding Top Hats for 1.4.[176]
  • Partially implemented: A snapshot named 12marc40awesome containing various joke features such as volcanoes, more dragons, coral, fish, and fish blocks.[177] Partially added in Java Edition 1.13 with fish and corals.
  • Pine cones.[178]
  • Dinnerbone joked about adding dwarves when asked about it.[179]
  • A texture known in the game files as "skis.png", was added in the Christmas/New Year update. Its textures were added by Dinnerbone as a red herring.[180]
  • SethBling mentioned a downside of command blocks on one of his livestreams, and Dinnerbone joked about removing command blocks to accommodate him.[181]
  • Dinnerbone joked that Minecraft pizza would be a good idea to add, and as a joke KrisJelbring stated that pizza is confirmed to be added.[182]
  • After the announcement of pillagers (over a year before the actual announcement of Village & Pillage), Dinnerbone and Jeb joked about several more villager portmanteaus:[183]
    • Drillager: he comes and pokes holes in things.
    • Fillager: he fixes the previous guys stuff.
    • Thrillager: really likes heights and scary things.
    • Killager: but we kinda already have that.
    • Spillager: prevents you from drinking potions.
    • Stillager: just stands around blocking important doorways.
    • Millager: the only hard working one of the bunch.
    • Krillager: Swims around and gets eaten by whales[184]
  • Mojang has made several April Fools jokes:
    • In 2011, the locked chest or "Steve Co. Supply Crate" was temporarily added which "allowed" various micro-transactions in the game.
    • In 2013, Mojang released Minecraft 2.0 which contained features such as pink withers and redstone bugs.[185]
    • In 2014, the default sounds were replaced with a voice (specifically, that of ElementAnimation, a famous YouTuber group known for making several popular videos about Minecraft) saying the name of the sound's source, the music was replaced with a rendition of the title theme of the TV series Game of Thrones (consisting of the word "door" repeated to the tune of the music), and everyone's skins were replaced with modified versions of the villager textures, edited to fit the player model. This was all blamed on the villagers.
    • In 2015, Mojang released 15w14a, which made all the mobs in the game friendly and loving.
    • In 2016, Mojang released 1.RV-Pre1, which added trendy items of 2016.
    • In 2017, the Mine & Craft Digital Leisure Device was announced on the Minecraft website.
    • In 2018, Mojang released an 8-bit resource pack to 1.12.x and versions from 17w43a to 18w11a clients.
    • In 2019, Mojang released 3D Shareware v1.34, which changed the game's visual style to resemble 1990s video games.
    • In 2020, Mojang released 20w14∞, which added over 2 billion new dimensions.
  • Henrik Kniberg showcased dancing hoglins on Twitter while implementing such a dance for piglins for Bedrock parity. The hoglin dance was a blooper that will not be implemented.
  • Xilefian joked about adding Worcestershire sauce to Minecraft if people told him what the best foods to pour Worcestershire sauce on are.[186]
  • Block of Eternal Screaming, showcased in multiple official Mojang videos.

    If the whole world was loaded at all times, this would be easy. A lot of the limitations of Minecraft stem from having to deal with a chunked, dynamically loaded/unloaded world. Everything needs to be very 'local', because there's no global information."
