Sure, we can imagine that they keep all their items and blocks in some sort of hyperspace so that they don't have to carry them all the time, but what if that's not the case? If your Minecraft character really does walk around hauling all their things, then how much could they hold at the most?

Let's find out.

First, let's find the heaviest thing in the game. According to Minecraft Wiki, gold weighs in at 19,320 kg (42593.3 lbs) per cubic meter/block, which makes them pretty heavy. Gold blocks are also a crafting ingredient used when making an enchanted golden apple:

Since it's made of 8 gold blocks, the enchanted golden apple is the heaviest item in the game.

Number Crunching (Weight of one Golden Apple)

19,320 kg (1 gold block) + 226.798 g (weight of an apple) Ã 8 = 21134.384 kg

Wow.


Next, we can take into consideration how much space there is in the inventory.

Let's see: there's the hotbar at the bottom (9 slots), the main inventory (27 slots), and the crafting area (4 slots). How much weight would Steve be carrying if we filled as many slots as possible with full stacks of golden apples?

More Number Crunching (Weight of Inventory Filled With Stacks of Golden Apples)

21,134.384 kg à 64 = 1352600.576 kg

1352600.576 kg à 40 slots in the inventory = 54,104,023.04 kg


Don't forget the armor! A full suit requires 24 gold ingots to craft.

Even More Number Crunching (Weight of Full Suit of Gold Armor)

1 block = 9 ingots
19,320 kg (1 gold block) ÷ 9 = 2146.666... kg

2146.666... kg à 24 = 51,520 kg


Finally, let's add together the weight of the armor and the apples:

51,520 kg + 54,104,023.04 kg =

54155543.04 kg (119392535.29 lbs) total

Wow.

I've actually seen multiple people cover this subject. I haven't seen that channel, so I guess it is a coincidence. Just thought this topic would be interesting to cover :)
