Top Ten Reasons Why Terraria Is Better Than Minecraft


The Contenders: Page 2

21 It's 2-D

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

2D is sucky

It's reminiscent of the early Mario games. Simple doesn't mean bad. - TheOnlyFish

22 Your items never break

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.

True. I mean, imagine if your Influx Waver you just got was broken, like, after 5 bunnies killed!

23 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

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

Can creeper defeat dungeon guardian wich gonna kill those creeper in 1 punch

24 More fantasy based

Yeah! Kids are loosing out on not being more connected with fantasy and sci fi!

Yeah I tottaly agree I mean oil green explosive scrotum or CTHULU

In my opinion fantasy is better. It triggers the imagination and sparks creativity. Less fantasy won't get kids thinking and pretending their on an epic journey to cleans the world of a great corruption, it will get them studying for a science project in 2d grade. I mean that's the opposite gaming.
Mannn, that was SO deep. My conscience will be proud of me. We haven't spoken to each other in a while
Terrarians are my PEEPs.

25 More of a challenge

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

Minecraft has no real challenge, since terraria has a challenge it just makes the game more fun

Minecraft's challenge is basically the same as walking.

Minecraft Challenge: Get some blue trash so you can spam a button to beat a dragon

Terraria Challenge: Defeat the lunatic cultist, destroy the lunar pillars, and fight a 300000 hp boss and win weapons that can destroy a whole goblin army in.4 seconds - Yatagarasu

26 Awesome bosses

The Wither would stand no chance against The destroyer. He would just get ripped apart in like, two seconds

The ender dragon (200 life) vs the moon lord (145,000 life). The ender dragon has a spit attack, the moon lord has a phantasmal death ray that deals more than 100 damage. No contest.

Less he wouldn't even want to spawn haha

Wither vs skeletron prime? Run now wither..
Elder guardian vs the twins? Elder guardian rip from the FIRE
Ender dragon vs Plantera (dragon vs overgrown plant with an epic theme tune? ) Plantera would still win

27 It's going to be part of a trilogy with Terraria Otherworld and Terraria 2

What would be cool is if they had after moon lord is defeated a portal opens and you go to different world and u can go back and forth and the cycle starts again with a ton more items

Really strongly agree with this one.

28 There's always something to do

There are always huge updates which contain new bosses and stronger weapons. Minecraft adds new blocks. Minecraft needs mods to be good.

Terraria is more creative with building, and as one user stated, with every update comes new content such as bosses, bug fixes, and more weapons and tools. Minecraft just adds more boring blocks and often pointless crap that doesn't get you anywhere. - KennyRulz244444

To all the people that are gonna argue, is iron nugget really good? - Yatagarasu

Yeah I can build an AFK farm, fight the moon lord, die to the moon lord, farm an earlier boss. Everything. I also thought the only way to beat the Twins was to AFK FARM THEM.

Terraria? No. Minecraft? Yes.

Why? Instead of throwing all our points out please have evidence - Yatagarasu

29 Actual challenging nights.

How is Minecraft challenging when you can just walk over to your bed and skip the whole night? In terraria it only sets your spawn point so it actually makes you go out and do something and not be a lazy butt

Well this time I give a vote to minecraft as night in terraria is easy

30 Cooler 'creepers'

You may not remember these - the things that fly around the brain of Cthulhu? They are actually creepy and don't make you rage when on Minecraft the creepers just look plain weird and just ruin your house, and you life

Well creeper is not the problem

Brain of ctulhu is a pre hardmode boss
Creeper are their minions

Creeper in minecraft is not the minions but these green things is just too intense if you are just starting your world and you find these creeper and you will die

Creepers in terraria is coming to you and you will prepare to fight these eyes

Conclusion : both creeper are not the problem but all of them will be easy to be killed after you recieve an end-game weapons

Creeper in minecraft + bow = creeper died
Creeper in terraria + solar eruption = 1 pressing button and u will defeat boc

Creepers in Minecraft:
"I'm a walking, exploding green p***s! "

31 Way more pets

You can get a lot of pets I got a elf a mini skeleton head and a cupid

Pets are so cute

Hey, at least your pets don't die in Terraria. - astroshark

Minecraft u get a wolf but u can't call it back if its annoying you

32 Better mechanics

Even though Minecraft has got command blocks (which takes forever to learn how to use). Terraria's mechanics are simple I have made myself a mechanism which teleports me away from boss' attacks.

Its awesome with mechs seriosly statues that spawn items/enemies
Does Minecraft have that in survival nope so they're a dope

33 Terraria has music and sounds for each biome

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


34 NPCs that actually do useful things

Squidward-like NPCs do nothing but trade rare gems for crappy items, human/creature-like NPCs sell useful items and are often helpful with other things. - KennyRulz244444

A villager tried sellin me a bucket of milk for 3 emeralds hate mc con men

Npc's in Minecraft: hey give me a rare gem and I will give you a piece of leather.
they also do not speak and there is no big loss if they die. (they also look alike)

Npc's in terraria: can speak, all look different, losing them give you a temporary disadvantage as you lose their service, tons of health, can defend themselves, have personalities, respawn, have to be unlocked, gives you items that are ACTUALLY USEFUL AND ACTUALLY WORK. some require it to be a certain time of the year. give you a fair amount of money if you sell things to them.

Me: oh hey a village (walks over)
Me: what will you give me for this emerald? Villager?
Villager: Hmm let me see. Either glowstone, which you shouldn't have as you just spawned or paper..
Me: I don't even have a house yet...glowstone won't be much use.
(4 hours later)
Me: oh god
Me: meh

35 Easy to Navigate

I agree! I lost my house so many times on Minecraft but on terraria I never lost it

Minecraft is supposedly 'infinite' (which it isn't just HUGE), and being 3d makes it almost impossible to navigate and safely get home without being killed or lost. On Terraria you only have to worry about how far your house is and how deep you are!

I hate it when you lose a house in Minecraft

Thank god for magic m. - Yatagarasu

36 The Ores and Armor

Minecraft's ores consist of coal, emerald, gold, iron, redstone, quartz, and diamond... they are all "easy" to find and are often useless. Terraria has plenty of ores (I believe twenty plus? ) starting from copper to chlorophyte! - KennyRulz244444

MC no mods ore= BARELY Terraria no mods= A TON; kill WOF, 4+ more ores! Minecraft has crappy armor while terraria has more than 10 sets of armor!

There is WAY WAY WAY more ores and armor. Minecraft only has Iron, Gold and Diamond. ONLY 3! what! Terraria I'm the other hand has Copper Short Sword, Wood armor if you just starting, all though say up to The Legendary Terra Blade and Turtle Armor! Oh, by though way, I'm trying to beat the Twins but whenever one of them transforms, they just keep raming into me. I have to magic mirror back to base for the nurse, but they Killed her (bastards). She respawned. I'm just wondering what to do next. ANY TIPS? #TERRARIAFTW

37 Mods are way better

There are little to no mods in Minecraft that actually do something useful (the only mod that seems to really catch my attention is the Rare Ores mod, which adds in rarer ores that "extend the gameplay", but that's for an old version, 1.6.4), Terraria has mods that almost change the gameplay in some sort of form. - KennyRulz244444

Literally, Minecraft mods mostly are like, One item mods or ripoffs of games plus stupid names, and plus, the games they copy have copyright most likely. Terarria Mods are amazing add like at least 3 new bosses and 100 mobs, and have cool names and plus they add around 200 items, and add 50 extra hours of gameplay

So true. Thorium and Tremor are such fun mods. I never have found a fun MC mod in my life.

38 Actual Classes of Weapons

Terraria: Hey I'm doing a Mage play through and I hope I get the Mage emblem when I defeat the wall of flesh so I get stronger water bolts so I can keep killing it until I get the sword my friend wants! I also want armour that gives my magic power a boost and by mana amount increase!

Minecraft: ehh I have a bow...not much else with archery tiers...meh..

39 Retro Graphics Styling

Playing Terraria makes you feel like you're playing a classic retro video game, even thought it's modern and is always adding new features and updates

To the comment below:
My dad (who was born in the 1960's) said that Terraria looked like a game from the 80's.
Just some cool info I thought I'd share...

Terraria looks like an early-to-mid 90s game for a Super Nintendo compared to Minecraft which looks like any ordinary 3D game. - KennyRulz244444

It also helps desingers to put in more detail and not a square eye of cthulu that won't be an eye

40 Actually organized servers

I joined a server and they kicked me because they didint like that I got more stuff so they kicked me and in terraria when no one asks for stuff I give them not hey give me that

No trolls. No griefers. No idiots trying to deafen you via mic. No children who beg for items and higher ranks. No children who accuse you of being a "n00b" or "h@x0r" after winning a fight. No hackers in every nook and cranny. No annoying players who spawn millions of monsters inside your base. No traps everywhere. Need I say more?

No griefers,tiny amounts of trolls,no kids who beg for items,no people who beg for food,because food is not a thing in terraria,no kids who call you (n00b) or (H2ck3r),no people who spawn chickens,pigs,bats and sheep everywhere,and no people who try to kill you for no reason.
