Most Useless Minecraft Items

The Contenders: Page 4

61 Feather

Arrows, books and basically that's it. The former can be gathered ridiculously easily by dissecting skeletons, and the latter having practically empty use in survival mode; therefore, my points are sealed.

The only thing I do is either throw them in lava or throw them away, they just take up all the space in my inventory and takes too long to craft arrows, to get arrows I just kill skeletons

The first thing I throw when my inventory is full. The only thing you can make with it is arrows.

You can make a book and quill.

62 Snow Block

Why do you need it? Snow is for fun and decor. It's not that helpful.

Golems, allows certain biome (s) to exist, and aesthetics.

63 Iron Nugget

At the time of this writing, the only way to obtain these is to smelt iron items, like swords and armor. But what's the whole point of this anyway? It takes 9 nuggets to make an ingot, but most (if not, all) of your ingots were obtained by smelting iron ore. There's no point to this stupid item. - TheYoshiOverlord

64 Slimeballs

I know you can make stk. pistons but in superflat the damn slime are always dropping them all they do is take up your invetory and chests

65 Bone

Also with bones you can get wolves - Almiller

Bones for wolves, it's "rarely" used for dyes and farming after you have an efficient farm set up.

It can be craft to create bone meal it also help me grow sapling

Wolfs, crops, saplings, bonemeal,

67 Ender Crystals

Guys they make it harder to kill ender dragon because its not supposed to be easy to beat the game its called being a man and stop whining because Minecraft is too hard grow up and stop whining its taking a challenge for once - radioactive329

Only Heal EnderDragon can't even take it it sucks

These aren't even blocks. They're entities.

They are nice to use for decoration!

68 Books

Getting books is very useful for crafting bookcases for your enchantment table to have higher levels. Do you really want a crafting table with 1 - 8 level enchants which only good one is sharpness and rarely fire aspect on swords?

Some version of Minecraft you can't do anything with books

What about crafting a bookshelf for enchanting

I think they are good

69 Flower Pot

I agree it is kinda useless but I like using it better then placing a grass block next to a window in my house and putting a flower on it.

Decoration guys not survival learn that - radioactive329

70 Bread

It absorbates too quickly! But if you eat a lot of bread and then meat for the last one everything is counted as meat so das good

71 Cocoa Beans

Cocoa Beans useful for making cookies but cookies are pretty much useless themselves

Cocoa Beans make cookies, which even late-game are good when out of danger. Cheap!

72 Soul Sand

This is dumb. You can't brew without soul sand.

It's the only way to grow Nether Wart, and looks cool for adventure maps. It also gives the Nether more of that "Welcome to Hell. Literally." kind of feel.

Soul Sand for adventure maps, and Nether Wart. It also makes the Nether looks so much better, and 1-way doors in older versions possible.

It can sometimes be used to make one-way doors

73 Lava Bucket

How the heck are you supposed to transport lava source blocks? And, you can make infinite cobblestone and stone generators with pistons, water, and lava.

I think it is really cool, but it's not cool when you fall into it. Your stuff is gone, and you can't see through it. Useful for pranks and light. It's not bad.

Infinite cobble isn't that useful... I mean, there's a thing called mining that can net you ores and is more entertaining.

74 Iron Ore

Seriously? What the hell can the actual iron ore block do apart from decoration? It's really more useful to smelt it. Really its actually completely useless.

Iron Ore is great early to mid-game when used for smelting.

75 Jack O Lantern

They're ugly and also wastes a torch, which is better for lighting stuff up in caves

Good for horror map and Halloween

It actually has more light than regular torches.

76 Ice

Good for bowling and building elsa's castle

SHUT UP ELSA FANS! Ice can be good for acheiving the fastest speed in minecraft.
Using trap doors, ICE, any block and jumping and sprinting and swiftness effect.

77 A Diamond Block

Well it saves space in your inventory but I don't know when your gonna have enough diamonds to take up space if your in survival and didn't use cheats ever and also you can put a diamond block under your house to keep it away from other players and it not being in your chests no one will take it - radioactive329

These are completely useless unless you are showing off.

Because we have such an abundance of diamonds...

Actually, you can use it for decoration. Plus, it will take up less space in your inventory.
Sometimes you can run into a massive extreme hill. You can also craft it back to diamonds.

78 Boats

They are fun to mess around with and make water slides have you guys tried making a boat fly just go off a water fall and you'll glide across the entire map - radioactive329

Boats shouldn't be on this list. Boats are usefull for traveling around oceans
And lakes

79 End Portal Frame

Well, it it very hard to get it, you don't need to get it. They are found in strongholds.

Besides going to "The End," no real use.

80 Cake

Every other food you eat it slows you down when your running from a swarm of mobs even cooked steak isn't good its quicker to just place a cake down and click on the cake then run and only a second is wasted but for the steak 10 seconds are wasted not very good steak - radioactive329

It can be eaten many times. It useful

Cake has to be placed to be eaten and hunger you gain from cake goes away in like 30 seconds

Can't disagree with you there, bud.
