Top Ten Reasons Why Terraria Is Better Than Minecraft

The Top Ten

Kinder community

Well if this is really a KINDER COMMUNITY then why are you hating on Minecraft?

I do agree, Minecraft is a very boring gamee without mods, but in case you doingt know, I know a mod called the titans mod, and it contains the hardest video game bosses ever, The way I know because the titans are undefeated to Minecraft bosses, and not only that, but it is lesser titans like omegafish and cave spider titan to obliterate them, greater titans and of course the all powerful witherzilla can one shot any video game boss

Anything popular becomes crappy at some point. I quit Call of Duty because of that.

Minecraft used to have a great community back in the day because it was "tighter" and less popular. I expect the same thing for Terraria, once it gets super popular (if it does), it will also have a community.

Hey man, Terraria is too hard for console peasants so they won't be part of the community. Since the world of gaming nowadays exists for 50% out of console peasants, this shouldn't be a problem. (There are no screaming 12 year olds between the true gamers) - Yannick1124

Terraria is way better in my opinion. It offers more options in combat, building, and etc.
Compared to the measly 2 bosses and like 5 enemy's minecraft has.

More content/updates

Terraria 1.3 Added more content then Minecraft ever had it had more items, more bosses, more weapons, and more enemies

Terraria has more enemies, weapons, armor, accessories, bosses, and ores. Terraria's just way better.

In Minecraft, nothing is a struggle, because you are the predator. But in Terraria where thousands of demons and creatures lurk around every corner, you become the prey, which makes Terraria at least ten times better than Minecraft.

I disagree with every reason
(The creators of this list need a serious reality check)

Way more combat

This makes it a whole lot better.

When I play capture the flag in Minecraft, I keep hitting someone but it turns out they are behind me because my computer is laggy and Minecraft's combat isn't as good because there are only swords and bows

Mana, need I say more?

Lol, Minecraft combat is so boring and repetitive. Also in the 1.9 update when they had a cool time for a weapon it was supposedly unhackable. But guess what? Hackers made a anti cool down hack!

Over 100 guns/weapons/powers

Minecraft and Terraria are both very well developed games, but Terraria still is many times better. Minecraft: very few tiers, low ore count. Terraria: Many diverse tiers, items, enemies, bosses, classes, and so much more. If you prefer Minecraft, then that's your choice, and I respect that. But if you've never played Terraria before, I implore you to at least try to brave challenges. And, who knows, maybe you will accept the challenge. Maybe you will become a legend. Perhaps one day, you will free Terraria from Cthulu's grip upon the lands. Perhaps one day, a god will fall beneath your feet.

The diamond sword in Minecraft does the same amount of damage as the wooden sword in Terraria. That is hella sad...

Yeah. Far away in minecraft, oh! I got a bow and a crossbow! what do I do now?

A meowmere which is 200 damage vs a diamond sword which is 7 damage.

Terraria was made several months before minecraft.

Minecraft was first publicly released in May 2009 and could be played during development, while Terraria wasn't publicly available for another two years. So much for factual evidence!

It is true that all of Terraria's bosses were made before Minecraft was out of Beta, and it is possible that Minecraft copied partly, but there is such thing as INSPIRATION. INSPIRATION is when you see something amazing and try to do something similar (reasons may vary - this is NOT a textbook ). But think about this: it is MUCH easier to program a 2D world than a 3D world: you don't have to design sides of blocks, you can just go crazy w/ pixel art, and you don't have to program the physics in a certain way. Plus, in Minecraft, a couple of blocks have different physics. Then when they add mobs and bosses, both parties have to program AI, health, animations, drops, etc. So basically, Minecraft may or may not be a rip off, and Terraria may or may not have a bit too much of Minecraft's aspects. But it's your choice to let it matter.

Whilst I defiantly prefer Terraria, I am sad to say that this is false. Minecraft released 2 years before Terraria

For all those people who say "Minecraft was made before". And "Terraria copied Minecraft".

More creative

Whoever put this here should realize this:Minecraft has creative mod! A serious shock!

Why is this even here? Minecraft and Terraria are creative in different ways. You can build in 2D, and use walls and platforms to make it look 3D, and some people enjoy 2D. In Minecraft, you can build in 3D, which some people enjoy. Again, it's a split road between 3D and 2D.

Lol. Who put this reason here? Minecraft has creative, peaceful mode, redstone and command blocks (which you can do practically anything with). Minecraft is 3D as well, which is just icing on the cake. I don't see how anyone in their right mind would think Terraria is more creative than Minecraft.

Add Mobile version of Terraria doesn't pay and Minecraft does

Better graphics by a landslide

I agree. I was bullied in 4th grade for liking terraria just because of its graphics. GRAPHICS don't MATTER

Do graphics matter? I agree that Minecraft's graphics suck, but graphics don't count on determining the greatness of games. For example, Pokemon Red had crap graphics, but it's gameplay was more solid then Call of Duty: Black Ops III.

Graphics don't matter kids.

Terraria is still better anyway.

At first the graphics are ok. But when you to different places especially at night.

More enemies

The amount of Pre-Hardmode mobs outnumber The amount of Minecraft mobs + 100 Mods by Googolplex.

Ender Dragon VS Moon Lord:
Ender Dragon would use Spit Attack which brings Moon Lord down to 144987 Health
Moon Lord would use Death Ray which brings Ender Dragon to 100 Health
Ender Dragon would use Endermen which brings Moon Lord to 144977 Health
Moon Lord would use Hand which brings Ender Dragon to No Health

I used to like minecraft more than terraria but now the tables have turned. Compare the 2 minecraft bosses to the 7 Pre-hardmod terraria bosses. Ender dragon (200 health) VS King Slime (2000 health).

Over 15 bosses, and 150+ enemies.

Less lag

It is good because you have npc you can by thing's from them and get items that proggres the game

More like no lag. I love Minecraft but it lags

Minecraft I play with 2 players I can't move

Terraria lags more. But other reasons outweigh this.

You can fight a gigantic mechanical santa

Robots are cool. Giant is the adjective of awesome. Santa is fat. Lets say it together... "Lets fight a cool, awesome fatty! "

Its presents are elf meter and chain gun!

A santa tank what more can u ask for what he does is he kills people so he doesn't have to deliver so many presents and you can fight him all year round

With epic music in the background, while he shoots with a chain gun at you.

The Contenders

Better mods

the only other game which has mods that can compare to terraria is starbound FU but the other starbound mods are no where near the level of FU

Terraria mods are like a free dlc which adds a extra 100+ hours of epic gameplay

First of all, Minecraft mods like orespawn and mythical creatures have insane bosses, new mobs, tones of new weapons, oh, and they could easily kill stuff in Terri’s in one hit

Terraria mods are much more enjoyable and difficult, like Prefixes for Enemies, Spirit, Calamity, Thorium, etc.

Lasts longer

Minecraft lasts for about a month? Same as like every other game in existence. Your point is?

In Minecraft, if you play for just 1 month, you've done everything. You have an enchanted diamond sword and have beat the ender dragon, and nothing else to do. In terraria, when I was just 1 month in the game, I had weak gear. We beat golem after two years of dedicated play.

Only because Terraria takes hours to load simple stuff. I MEAN what TE HECK!

I can get diamonds on the first day

More mature community

The Terraria community isn't filled with bullies and immature kids that don't know any better than to swear and come up with very uncreative and overused insults. They also accept opinions more positively than anybody from the Minecraft fanbase would.

Minecraft community: 90% kids. 9% teens and 1% adultsTerraria community: 15% kids 25% adults and 60% teens

Actually: Minecraft community: 85% kids, 10% creeps, 5% slightly mature thinkers; Terraria community: very mixed, but mostly people who can think maturely or at least act like they can. - Yannick1124

I love the fact that this kid going threw out the entire thing and writing "Terraria is STUPID" is just proving our point.

So, so true, couldn't have said it better!

You can save characters and go on other worlds

In Minecraft, you make a world and get a bunch of stuff, and say you want to move it to another world. There's a difficulty. In Terraria? No problem!

In Minecraft, when you go to another world / server, you have to redo all your "hard work". Unlike Terraria, you can save all your weapons, items and gear with you on another world / server. You can continue your journey in Terraria without having to redo all the things you did, such as fighting a hard boss.

And you can trade with your friends. For example, imagine you wanted to trade 50 truffle worms for the possessed hatchet, you can go with you saved items and give your friend the hatchet. Easy! In minecraft, you can't even trade much, AND you can't get your stuff in other worlds. If world hopping in Terraria didn't exist, I would've never got the scourge of the corrupter and vampire knives. - astroshark

You're not SUPPOSED to bring your gear from singleplayer onto other worlds. Like multiplayer.

A lot more mobs and monsters

In Minecraft there is 'bout... 10 mobs? And in TERRARIA there is about 1000 mobs! Can you see the difference?

So you can have a variety

Fight a literal god.

Do mobs matter?

You collect costumes

You can collect costumes in terraria, in Minecraft Only dyed leather armor

There is no better feeling than defeating the Moon Lord with a fish costume.

You have vanity sets which give you a chance to express yourself, or just look plain cool. Heck, you can even put armor on the vanity set area. I like the creeper suit, or the sun mask, as my favorite.

In Terraria I can be a fox with fishron wings who kills people with the Terra Blade. In minecraft I can be a dull fox with boring armour and a weak sword. - astroshark

Minecraft is boring

Yeah, I know, lot's of people say, "Minecraft has kool mods! Derm! " But let's be real here... The only reason Minecraft has these "kool" mods, is because the game is so darn limited! "Oh, but there is kool looking' castles, and Mine Carts 030." come on people, let's be real. Minecraft is now becoming a corrupted compilation of everything the fans want, instead of an actual game. Terraria has never (and hopefully will never) have this problem

Why do you make me disagree with you IDunnoWhatToNameMyself

Mods are hard to install sometimes and could contain viruses to mess up your computer big time

Even most mods for Minecraft get so boring after awhile.

Better boss battles

Just because its in 3D doesn't mean its way better. And wall of flesh actually takes strategy, like if you do not prepare for the wall of flesh by bringing health potions and clearing a big path, you will die instantaneously.

Minecrafts boss battles are great ideas the only problem is that THE BOSS FIGHT SUCKS. The ender dragon is not hard or fun at all all you do is wait for it to come and spam click it that's it it's like a game of spamming a button -_-. Now Terraria boss fights are also great ideas but the boss fights ARE ACTUALLY FUN even the 1st boss fight is more fun the Minecrafts bosses COMBINED now hate Minecraft fans.

Sounds arnet better in boss battles in Minecraft terraria even has its own bos music Minecraft is just boring piano

Oh, SO True. In Minecraft, to defeat the Ender Dragon you only have to have the reflexes of a 90 year old and a Bow with Armour. In Terraria, any boss requires strategy and proper weapons to defeat and obtain their very useful and EPIC loot. That's another point �" in Minecraft, you literally get a Nether Star which is pretty much useless. In Terraria, you get game changing materials, etc.

Terraria has more items

Try and get the rod of discord before saying you got everything. Did I mention the extra 150+ items? Also, did I mention Minecraft has 10-50 items?

Fun facts that in mobile version after you made a world you eill get 0-6 dirt ( try it if you don't believe me )


U just wrecked yourself!

Your items never break

The reason why this wouldn't work in minecraft is because the items are easy to get and otherwise it would be way easier to finih the game.

Pfft. That means it’s unrealistic! You expect a copper short sword to never break?

Both are unrealistic in their own ways
Please don't tell me that hitting a tree with your fist and successfully breaking it is realistic...
And then in Minecraft the trees float... - IDunnoWhatToNameMyself

I think this is a neat addition. Do you know how many times I have to replace an item in Minecraft? Usually about 5 times a play.

Let's say there's a sword that took you WEEKS to make (gathering materials), but like after 2 days it breaks. That would be the WORST thing ever.

It's 2-D

I'd rather get motion sick than fell like I am cheating in a game.

I get motion sick from Minecraft

Since it's 2D, you can see the danger a mile away

So for all the triggered peeps, you saying sonic 06 is better than sonic 1? NO

More of a challenge

So apparently a game needs to be challenging for it to be good?

The only challenge in Minecraft is to not get blown up by a walking penis

In Terraria, you can spend hours preparing for a boss, or even fighting normal monsters. The only challenge in Minecraft, like someone already said, is to not get blown up by a walking penis meant to be a pig.

Minecraft is about building. Survival mode should not even exist. It is normal for sandboxes to not have a challenge. I hope people understand that.

Terraria has music and sounds for each biome

Every biome has a unique tune Minecraft doesn't have that


To be honest I like the Minecraft soundtrack a lot better.

My favourite Minecraft song is C418 - Sweden, it's a song for a funeral, Minecraft has better sounds and music

Character Look

In Terraria, you see armoured players who look totally bada$$. In minecraft, you see naked weirdos who ask for a boyfriend/girlfriend. - astroshark


So u want Minecraft skins, that can be realistic to the the point where u can wear a hoodie and get a foam Minecraft sword from the toilet store, or do u want color filled masterpieces of armor that is like no other. I mean seriously, if u don't believe me talk to your theripist about the situation.

I always hated it that in minecraft you have to go through lot's of pain and searching "how to change your skin in mincrrft", in terraria, you just create a character without any confusion.

Harmless mobs

Creepers are just stupid things to mess up your buildings so you spend more time on Minecraft when on terraria it doesn't make you want to curl up in the corner and die

Plus they look like walking life sized penis sex toys that are green and have 4 testicles to walk - Hummingbirdf

I honestly think that Terraria mobs are WAY more dangerous than Minecraft mobs, for example a Creeper would stand no chance against a Bone Serpent. See my point?

You can see Terraria mobs from all angles, in Minecraft you can't. Creepers are a threat because you can't see them if their behind you. - thebadscientist

Eye of Cthulhu (weakest Terraria boss) would defeat the Ender Dragon (hardest minecraft boss) in a few hits. - astroshark

I can sell them for silver.
