Who is Herobrine?

Herobrine is a legend of a lost miner who is supposed to exist in Minecraft, although he doesn't and was just some rumor made up. However, he is said to haunt the player and the game, the other Herobrine plugins acted although we was a mugger, disobeying the legends. But this plugin aims to set things straight and bring back the legend that is Herobrine.

What can I do?

You can configure just about everything, what he says, what he can do, who he is, and more. This includes Herobrine's name, messages, and abilities.

  • The Github for Herobrine can be found at https://github.com/nkrecklow/Herobrine.
  • For the list of commands, type: "/hb" (alias: "/hbu") (requires OP or "herobrine.commands").
  • Ignore players with the permission "herobrine.ignore".

What can he do?

Following the legends, Herobrine is able to do many things, growing with each update.

  • Randomly place signs with creepy messages.
  • Randomly place torches around players.
  • Play sounds of footsteps and creepy noises.
  • Steal from chests and inventories.
  • Targets alone players, and is more active at night.
  • The ability to create and build pyramids.
  • The ability to create and build TNT traps.
  • "Possession" where the player looses all control.
  • Spawn a random amount of bats when he spawns.
  • Ability to enable and disable everything he does.
  • Destroy torches near players.
  • Spawn random (and angry) wolves near players.
  • Create rings of fire.
  • Create graves.
  • Rearrange chests or inventories.
  • Give players books with custom messages.
  • Cause random explosions or lightning.
  • Launch the player into the air.
  • Put your head on a pike.
  • Randomly spin and rotate the player.
  • Destroy chests and drop their contents.
  • Randomly set the player on fire.
  • Creates nether infections, where hell meets Earth.
  • Can decay nearby flowers, turning them into mushrooms.
  • Randomly generates "hotspots", where actions are more likely to occur.
  • And more, I'm always expanding the plugin!

Did somebody say custom mobs/items?

There are three mobs currently, you can check them out on the images page:

  • Unknown Demon drops a Blood Gem.
  • Fallen Angel drops a Greed Gem.
  • Hell's Guardian drops a Midnight Gem.
  • Religious Follower drops a Satanic Book.
  • Together the three gems can be combined to create Herobrine's Sword.
    A = Blood Gem, B = Midnight Gem, C = Greed Gem
    A B A
    B C B
    A B A

Can I use an API?

There is a built-in API. It allows developers to register their own actions and commands. Simply import the latest version of Herobrine as a library, and code away.

Plugin plugin = getServer().getPluginManager().getPlugin("Herobrine");
if (plugin != null) {

Example action: Here

    So, when he's unleashed, the legend is basically real and he'll spawn and despawn randomly?

    @Gollum716: Go

    He's now unleashed into the world. Also, you can only teleport when he's spawned.

    Can you tell me what i should do? I went to config.yml, and selected true for allowAltar. I made the living.yml folder in the Herobrine folder. I made the altar in creative. I ignited the fire, put it out, and then put it back on, nothing happened. I then did the same thing in survival. Nothing happened. some commands work, like /hb appear and /hb placesign and /hb playsound, and /hb placetorch, but other than that non other commands work, it says he's not unleashed into the world. I've tried the altar many times in both creative and survival. it doesnt work. What do i do?
