I've seen videos of a mob named Herobrine being summoned or randomly encountered. He has the default Minecraft skin but with glowing white eyes. Are these videos all hoaxes or is there a way to summon Herobrine in Minecraft survival mode without mods? Can he be randomly encountered?
Notch on Twitter is pretty clear on the topic:
Short Answer: No.
Long Answer: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO.
And he "removed" him in the 1.6.6 update.
No. While modding I must have seen every source file since Alpha 1.0_17 a couple of times, and there's simply nothing there. Unless he's an emergent feature of the deepest bowels of the rendering code.
He is not real. Legends say he is the ghost of Notch's brother, and he will not stop at anything to kill you, but he doesn't exist. The many videos that say he does are fake.
Besides, every update they have a "Removed Herobrine" thing.
Trust me, he is nothing to be frightened of.
No, Herobrine doesn't exist, despite the fact he was seen by other player and have evidence that he was real. Notch says he wasn't real. Something like this:
Some say he was Notch's dead brother. But he has no brother. Neither did he have any other siblings. Of course, if Notch really did prove to add him, he would of got fired and he would lose all his money since he was a billionare. There is a Herobrine mod, but the sightings on the game without mods were different than the mods itself. Of course the Wiki says:
Why does he have no eyes? it's because he is a ghost. In some scary movies, ghosts normally have no eyes which are evidence that Herobrine is an undead.
So of course, we have no evidence that he is in the game and is Notch lying? Or did someone really put a joke? We don't know.
Most of updates that Minecraft had normally say:
But was that a joke? Notch put this in the update to prove he was never in the game but he was seen after the update and Notch says the videos are fake and sometimes another player can add such Herobrine stuff such as redstone torches to troll people.
