Top Ten Useless Blocks/Items In Minecraft

5 blocks and 5 items. Does not include ores that also have survival mode alternatives. Example=iron and iron ore will not be in here. This list also contains strictly vanilla minecraft and NO mod items/blocks. Sorry for any spelling inconveniences,i'm typing most of this on Kindle. The keyboard really sucks :/

The Top Ten

1 Helmets

Low armor bonus. Unless it raining spider-chickens, its useless. Why couldn't they make the other armor have more durability? Or maybe add a replacement that has better durability?

It's a good item, the maker of this list does not know! - iiKyodaiKickz

This one IS useful because if there was a spider shooting arrows at you and one fly and hit your head,without helmet,i think it will damage you with at least 1 and a half heart.And with helmet it will only damage half heart or 1 heart

2 Emeralds

Honestly, the only thing this does is get you to trade with villagers, and their prices are obscene. They are also VERY difficult to acquire and has no strategic advantage, WHATSOEVER! Pray for good emerald tools. Pray.

3 Pufferfish

It can be used for potions

All you do is eat it,and it doesn't give you much health, for such an uncommon food. And I'm not even sure you eat it!

4 Ruby

I know what you're saying: "But the ruby isn't in REAL Minecraft! Its only a texture buried deep in the Minecraft files! " that's exactly right! Its an ITEM texture. It counts as an item because with a few clicks it can replace the emerald. But now you're saying: "But that's a mod and you said vanilla Minecraft! " That's exactly WRONG! The ruby texture is buried deep within the Minecraft textures. Not a Minecraft mod texture. AND it doesn't have any use WHATSOEVER! But since this isn't default Minecraft, I'm afraid the #1 title goes to all goldy.

This was unused, how does it make it useless if they didn't put it in? - Datguyisweird666

It just has no use

5 Snow Blocks

You can make a Snow Golem out of them! - Datguyisweird666

It has barely any use in Minecraft.(Unless you're becoming an Eskimo. :3)

Also snow golems

6 Dead Bush

This one is obviously #2 useless on the list

1. Pufferfish

2. Deadbush

3. debug blocks (yes these absolutely are a thing, look them up in a resource's packs block files and they'll be there. They literaly serve NO PURPOSE EXCEPT FOR CREATING BLOCK MODELS

4. golden anything


6. hoes

7. spawn egg

8. feathers

9. full blocks of ores

10. Ink sacs

11. Snowballs


Notch likes deadbush

Very useless

7 Poisonous Potato

This item has no use

8 Cobblestone

You can use it to get iron, which can make an iron pickaxe to get diamonds, redstone, and gold. - Pokemonfan10

We can use it to craft stone weapons

Why does there have to be cobble,and not just good ol' stone?

9 Sponge

Griefer's greatest enemy! - Pokemonfan10

All it does is suck up water, and the amount it sucks up is mostly random. Its just a decoration that can be easily replaced by yellow wool, stained glass, stained clay, etc.

10 Dirt

The Contenders

11 The Queen Spawn Egg

Spawn her of course just to make her fight another player if two players are playing."TROLL MY FRIEND QUENN"

12 King Spawn Block
13 Default Spawn Egg
14 Bowl
15 Feather
16 Diamond Hoe

There is no use upgrading your hoe to this point

17 Sand
18 Coral

Because all it does is decorate your fish tank or ocean but maybe some people don't have fish tanks I don't know *Just throwing that out there
