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:
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.
Is Herobrine Real?
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 brothers. 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:
What does Notch say about Herobrine?
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.
Also when ever some people tweet him about Herobrine, he says:
Most of updates that Minecraft had normally say:
This made people think Herobrine was in the game and that he was removed. However, that was a joke from Notch, just so he could get rid of the Herobrine Argument.
Here, hate to break the fact, I checked every resource as a programmer, there is no thing in Minecraft that has 'Herobrine' it exits a long time ago when they had servers and some hacker decided to do some trolling. Notch also indicated "I have no intention to add Herobrine" Neither does Jeb, with Microsoft's move to buy Minecraft, they would have realized that there was Herobrine. Probably someone mistakenly thought the 'Giant Zombie' was Herobrine. Might had been a development error for the giant zombie.
The reason people say that they have seen herobrine and those videos were to start a haux rumor around Minecraft. Also known as ** THEY USED SOME TEXTURE PACK THAT MADE IT SEEM LIKE THERE WAS HEROBRINE**
Long story short- NO HE DOES NOT EXIST
Herobrine does not exist. It is some video editing, Photoshop or maybe texture packs that's trying to trick you.
Play those singleplayer worlds without fear! Don't be afraid.
