Who is Minecraft Herobrine? The legend of the character who does not exist

Herobrine never really existed in Minecraft. There is no trace of this character in the game's source code, yet there are a disproportionate number of legends about him. Who is Herobrine? This question is not easy to answer.

Herobrine is very similar to Steve, but unlike the game's well-known mascot, he has glowing eyes which make him particularly creepy. Not surprisingly, the legend of him was born with a "creepypasta", a gruesome story, dating back to 2010 and made famous during a stream of Brocast. According to legend, Herobrine is a seemingly hostile mob capable of creating structures such as pyramids and generating redstone torches, 2x2 tunnels and dungeons with elaborate traps. Herobrine never reveals itself directly in front of players, preferring to stay on the edge of the map, behind the mountains and or hidden in the fog. However, some players claim to have seen him, and to have come across traces of his passage, such as crosses, tunnels or redstone torches.

The truth is that the Herobrine skin does not exist in the game code. If you have come across it, it is nothing more than a mod created by a gamer. Over the years, however, a multitude of stories have been built around him, fed to forums around the world and told in an endless series of videos on YouTube and Twitch. Some identify it as the revenge of a fired Mojang employee, others as the ghost of Notch's dead brother. The Herobrine myth grows day by day, and the creator of Minecraft himself contributes to deepen the mystery without ever giving a precise answer to fans who ask for explanations.
