Hero Overview

The Players (commonly known as Steve and Alex) are the playable main protagonists of the popular sandbox video game, Minecraft. They can freely explore or roam the world of Minecraft as well as build anything they want by using their own imagination. Despite being genderless or nameless in the game, The players can be considered as characters in-game. While Steve is the first default skin in the game, Alex is the second one, and appears to have a thinner model than Steve.


The Players' heroic sides are kind, friendly, caring, trustful, good, strong, loving, joyful, gentle, patient, desiring, imaginative, brave, and helpful. The players often do these things depending which side they pick or choose.


Players had brown hair and rather peculiarly purple eyes. They had exactly the same clothing as the zombies.

Steve has dark brown hair, dark skin, nose and mouth, and blue eyes, with a light blue shirt (un-tucked on the left hand side and in the back), a pair of blue jeans, gray shoes, and 4px arms.

Alex has long bright orange hair hanging to the left side, pale white skin, and dark green eyes, with a light-green shirt (un-tucked on both sides, and a dark green belt wrapped around it), a pair of brown pants, grayish boots, pinkish lips, and 3px arms.

Both player skins are intended to be generic representations of a human being, although the player's skin can be changed.

Biography (Minecraft)


The player has 10 full hearts or 20 health points. One full heart represents two hitpoints. When the player's hunger bar is at 18 or higher, their health will slowly regenerate by 1 every four seconds, but when it is at 20 with saturation remaining, their health will regenerate by 1 every half second. The hunger bar depletes faster when the player does things like sprinting, jumping, attacking mobs, and mining, and it can be refilled by eating food. If the hunger bar is at 17 or lower, the player will not regenerate health unless in Peaceful (or under the effect of certain potions). If the hunger bar is down to 0, the player will start starving and losing health. On Hard difficulty, starvation will kill you. On normal difficulty, it will bring you down to 1. On easy difficulty, it will bring you down to 10. On peaceful difficulty, the health bar will recover regardless of hunger but will still take starvation damage, and the hunger bar will not lose any points, even when under the effect of hunger. Notably, if the player is killed, right after the death, the death screen is shown. If you exit, and re-enter, the same screen will show up.

Customization (Skins)

In Java/PC Edition, users can change their character's skins on the Preference page of or the launcher by uploading a PNG image file, which will then replace the default skin. Players will also have the option to have three or four pixel wide arms on their character model.

The Legacy Console Edition has a separate default skin for each player. The ability to change that skin is available using the Change Skin option in the game. People who already have the removed skin packs can still use them and even re-download them (so they're still being hosted). If the removed skin packs are redownloaded on someone else's console they will become available to any profile on that console (provided the skin pack doesn't have a demo version to default back to).

In the Bedrock Edition, the player can change the skin by opening the settings from the main menu and going to the skin settings. The two default skins are Alex and Steve but you can get your own skin by the "Custom" button.

In the Pocket Edition, Skins are stored in some unofficial skin packs from Minecraft. They also can use skins by downloading it on the Internet.

Survival Mode

In Survival mode, the player spawn somewhere randomly in the Overworld. Players are able to place and destroy blocks, and use all tools available. The player has limited health, hunger, and oxygen and it takes time to break blocks.

Creative Mode

Like in Survival, players randomly spawn somewhere in the Overworld, with unlimited resources and inventory so they can freely do whatever they want. Players also have infinite health and weapons as well as hunger. the player has the ability to fly by double tapping the jump key and to place infinite number of blocks, but with limited use of crafting and tools. All mobs won't attack the player. The player cannot take damage or die, with cheats enabled, has no hunger and has unlimited oxygen, and breaking blocks is instantaneous.

Adventure Mode

In Adventure mode, there are no changes from Survival mode aside from being unable to break or place blocks unless they possess a tool with the CanDestroy NBT data tag for that block, or have a block with the CanPlaceOn tag. This game mode can only be played by having cheats enabled and typing the command /gamemode adventure, or by just opening a multiplayer world.

Hardcore Mode

In Hardcore mode, the player has only one life and has limited resources just like Survival and Adventure modes. However, if the player dies in this world, they will no longer respawn in that world. They can only respawn in spectator mode and the difficulty level is locked on hard mode.
