Hi guys, G0dlyCheese here, and today I am going to talk about
minecraft myths, and whether they are busted or confirmed.
Thanks for reading!

1. Herobrine

Herobrine was never added to the game. On multiple changelogs for previous
minecraft versions, it says "Removed Herobrine". Yet, there was never any
thing in any changelog that said "Added Herobrine". This myth started on the
creepypastas of 4chan, saying that it's not real, no matter what. Notch has
also tweeted many times that He does not plan to add herobrine to vanilla

So we can declare this one busted.

2. Epic Ender Dragon Win

This one is less well known. At first, there was no way to know for sure whether
this myth was true, but then modders came along, decompiled the code, and
found no evidence of this being true. The myth states that if you kill the Ender
Dragon with your bare hands without breaking any ender crystals, which is
pretty much impossible, than the ending message changes and it rewards you
with much more exp.

As I said before, this one is clearly busted.

3. Blaze Snowball Win

So this one is an important one, because of how seemingly useless snowballs
are. This myth was started right after blazes were exposed to the people who
played minecraft. The myth stated that if you throw snowballs at a blaze, it
significantly increases the amount of damage it does to the blaze. After some
modders analyzed it, they found that this myth was true.

So this one's confirmed.

4. Enchanting Over 9000!

This is a myth that was basically very vague until the answer was found. The
myth stated that there was a higher level of enchanting that you could access
in vanilla minecraft. In fact, after Minecraft was decompiled, it was found that
you could enchant to level 127 in vanilla minecraft. You could not access it,

This myth is kind of plausible. There was level 127 hidden in the code of
vanilla minecraft, but there was no way to access it in either survival or
creative mode.

5. The Farlands

This myth was kind of confusing. This was invented by a troll who was trying
to get the community hyped up over nothing. This myth explained that eventually,
the world ended and you would fall through the floor, be able to fly, not be able
to break anything. Eventually, someone had the patience to fly to the coordinates
of about x 31000000 or z 31000000. At both coordinates, there was a place where
the world generation stopped functioning properly, and blocks could not be broken.
No flying, but the joke's on him, because this myth was true. The way this works,
is that eventually, as the discoverer said, the minecraft world gets too big, and it
stops generating. It still is infinite, but it doesn't generate properly to save memory.
The discoverer called it the Farlands.

This myth is confirmed.

I hope you guys enjoyed!

Theres one myth, thats if you throw snowballs at the enderdragon, its head will freeze, and it will die, and a block of ice generates around its head. I have triple checked the ender dragon code, for any bit of evidence, and it has been false, I also killed it with snowballs once, they are very effective, but no ice head.

I know how to enchant level 127!!!! It really easy!!!! On MCEdit, you can use sethbling's filter "Enchant" and pick what level with a high of 127!! In fact, you can give potions effects with level 127 with another sethbling filter on MCEdit!

Did you watch The Herobrine Documentary? If not, watch it. I've learned a lot from Herobrine from it.

Herobrine is not real. He is a myth created by some users of 4Chan. Herobrine is also just a joke from Notch and the Minecraft community, and Herobrine is not in the code and never was.

I think that 4 should be referred to as 'plausable'

Level 33 : Artisan Geek
I don't see why it should be plausible. If 127 was the max enchant, then enchanting over 9000 would be impossible. So it should be busted.

The FarLands existed in the game pre Adventure Update, and they were different things than what you explained.


They were accidentally removed by Notch.

And you don't need patience to fly to those coordinates. It's easy to just do /tp [name] [x y z]

Wait, what? I just teleported myself and I'm at the farlands right now in 1.7.2.
They're not removed.

The FarLands are the huge mountanous and weird terrain. Frame rate slows, there's alot of jittering, and lots of glitches.

If you mean you found the boundaries of the world, with just flat terrain, that should be there. If you mean the actual FarLands, they shouldn't.

The "farlands" in beta versions of minecraft were large mountains with massive snaking tunnels, kind of like a large lump of swiss cheese. that was after about 1 million blocks. Now, after you go past the 31 million block mark, the map still shows up normally in that you can see terrain, but there are no physical blocks, in which you fall through and eventually die.
