According to the the lasted update, 1.6.6 (which was posted about an hour before this post) notch removes Herobrine... If you're like me, you've probably never heard of this. At first I thought it was some sort of block or plant. But I was a bit curious as too what it could be so I decided to do some research. Turns out that Herobrine is actually a mod that some people believed to be the ghost of Notch's brother, entering your SMP game. Also, almost any topics (usually in forums like gamefaqs) related to Herobrine where deleted immediately.

But now the truth is out, Notch openly stated that he removed Herobrine, which means he actually had to have existed prior to update 1.6.6 and was either added by Notch himself or one of his co-workers.

Personally, the story sounds sort of scary, but I never actually saw it so I was wondering if anybody else saw it?

Herobrine was and never will be in Minecraft Notch and Jeb both said this it was a joke to get the community going. Then the mod came out.

Herobrine is removed in almost every update. So he some how gets back in the game or he is't real.

Notch postd oe time that Herobrine was never in. It's most likely that it' a joke or something like that.
I'm scared because, Herobrine was meant to be removed in 1.3, and the computer I play on, is still on 1.2.5. So if he Herobrine does excist, and I think he does, he'll be on my game.
guys .. i tried one day to download minecraft 1.5.6 to see if he still exist in it , i gone to diamonds and i still can't find him so i deleted it and opened the minecraft 1.3.2 and btw : ik that this post is too old from the days that herobrine was in minecraft :)
what i mean = that everything about herobrine is just a joke and btw : this video also explain everything about herobrine : www.planetminecraft.com/blog/notch-himself-says-that-herobrine-is-fake/ and btw : herobrine what i think is that herobrine was a test to notch to put something new to mobs or a thing that makes minecraft harder .. but it was soooooooo STRONG AND minecraft was scary and hardcore so he removed him that what i think :D

He is fake, he just write it becouse people don't belive him when he saying that he is fake.
Herobrine is still in the game, because even until now, 1.0, it says Herobrine removed. I think they couldn't figure out how to get rid of him. O.o

its 1.0.0 now... not 1.6
1.6 was made a very very very long time ago... Well it feels like that long. And Herobrine is more of a myth then anything else in the game. However it is ALSO a mod. Of course people created a herobrine mod for the laughs and scares it brings... However, Herobrine actually was real in previous versions of the game. There was like a 1/1000 chance every minecraft day you would see him. But he can show up. Proven by my friend and i & a youtube video...

Exactly: First you said 1.6.6 (still in beta) when you probably meant 1.0.0. And as other people have said, herobrine isn't/wasn't a mod: It's a scare story someone, probably at mojang started, with rumours of a secret mob in the game! Nobody knows truely whether it was ever real or not, but most people believe he never existed, and Notch just decided to confuse everyone by putting "Removed herobrine" in the update log! Some people will believe anything...

First off, 1.6 came out almost eight months ago, not...well...and hour ago...

Second, it's called an "Easter Egg". People from games do things like this all the time. And no, I don't mean added a code of some sort, I mean acknowledge some form of a meme from somewhere else. Or lore, for that matter.

And thirdly, if you look about, herobrine is a players name. He has been banned from about 62 servers. So Herobrine is real, but more as a player who decided "Gee....I want to be the most well known ass in this game" rather then someone at Mohang going "I'm going to add 001011011010101 here, and make the worst monster ever"
You know very little about Herobrine...

It isn't a mod. Herobrine was something Notch added back in like, Alpha. It was a person just like Steve, but without pupils. He would run around, evading anywhere you could possibly catch a good enough glimpse of him, and he would do weird things like take the leaves off of trees, and build pyramids, and just spooky stuff. You could even build a shrine to him, and when you lit it, he would spawn out of the shrine and everybody near him would catch on fire and die.

1.6 didn't come out an hour ago dude... It came out like, in May of this year. 7 months ago...

How do you build the shrine?
You can't build it anymore... It only works in versions before 1.6.

I forget exactly, but it was like... gold blocks, a moss stone and a netherrack with redstone torches on it or something, then you light the netherack in the center and Herobrine comes out of the fire.

Google it.
3x3 gold blocks except for the middle. the middle is moss stone, and netherack on top of the moss stone. it only worked in redstone torch light.
