Is there any list of all symbols/characters you can use in the Minecraft chat?


Minecraft officially supports ASCII characters under 0x80. It can render more characters, but they do not render correctly.

The supported characters are listed below.


You can find this list together with more info about the possibilities( colors, and style) of the chat at the Chat article on the MinecraftCoalition wiki, if figuring out what these characters are is too much trouble.

  • Backslash ("\") is an escape character; these are used in coding when a symbol already has a specific meaning to the program. Note how there's also one on the double quote in the beginning. Unless you are coding something you can just delete it, and it probably could be deleted in the answer as well. – Jane Panda Mar 5 '15 at 17:00
