Notch himself said that Herobrine is fake
There was never a code or a picture of herobrine. Herobrine has not been present in any version of Minecraft.
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 moderator 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-spam8:56 AM Oct 20th Notch i have no plans of adding herobrine.
Current stance on Herobrine
As Minecraft passed on from Notch to Jeb_, the chance of Herobrine appearing in an update was unclear. On the 22nd of August, Dinnerbone, current joint developer of Minecraft, tweeted:
o We have no plans at all to add herobrine. I doubt this will ever change.o ~ Dinnerbone on Herobrine
Mojang has, albeit rarely, shared their views on Herobrine.
Notcho 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 etco ~ Notch on Herobrineo Getting loads of tweets and emails about Herobrine again. I don't have a dead brother, and he never was in the game. Not real. Never was.o ~ Notch on Herobrine
Ezchilio It was fun to see the brocraft stream with herobrine back in the day, was well done. But then it's been overused & worn out.o ~ Ezchili on Herobrine
Kappischeo Ok ok. To be honest, there has never existed a Herobrine. It was just a rumor started by some douche and then someone probably created a mod.o ~ Kappische on Herobrine
When asked if he would like to update his stance, Kappische replied:
o yes..but he is watching me!o ~ Kappische on Herobrine
Mollstamo Herobrine has, and always will be, our friend.o ~ Mollstam on Herobrine
JahKobo He has never existed.. Quote me if you want..o ~ JahKob on Herobrine
Carnalizero I don't always have an opinion about Herobrine, but when I do, it tends to end up on a wiki.o ~ Carnalizer on Herobrineo I don't have an opinion.o ~ Carnalizer on Herobrinesome info that I took from the wiki
also Herobrine started from a creepey pasta story
first of all mojang is right because hes never been coded and stuff like that. hes actually just a guy who likes tricking and scarying people. i was looking at the stories about him and found out that 80% of the stories are sightings of him on servers so i think herobrine is a real person and the sightings of him on singleplayer sound very fake except the very first sighting i kinda believe that one. and i recently got the citizens plugin on my bukkit server and u can create npc's of any real minecraft players skin and they dont move and u can give em quests and stuff and so i did /npc create Herobrine just 4 the heck o0f it and it created the default minecraft skin with white eyes so i kinda think he is a real person who trolls people
PLEASE GIVE IT A DIAMOND TO SHOW ALL OF THIS NOOBS
