Worst Things That Could Happen to You In Minecraft


The Top Ten

1 Mining a lot of diamonds then dying in lava

I remember when I was still a active member on Minecraft there where times where I would go mining for hours on end. Well sometimes I took a chance and I went in with no real plan on what would happen if I die eaither that or I go in just wanting some coal and get lost down in a cave and end up with a bunch of stuff then somehow manage to fall in lava by negligence on my end or worse I am as careful as can be and somehow I am in lava. Lava is also hard to survive you have better chances fighting a creeper with your fists then surviving lava. If your in for more then a second or two your most of the time done. I have been lucky before.


It's even worse if you had the diamonds you needed to make a full set of diamond tools/armor, but then you fall into lava, and then you're back to nothing. - allamassal

If I find you with lotsa stuff I'm gonna kill ya in minecraft

2 Getting lost


I Made A HUGE house no lie it was so big and I spent so many weeks on it and all my effort and one day I accidently fell off the house (it was high up) and then boom, I died and guess what? It said my bed was destroyed (so my whole house was long lost and gone)! SO UNFAIR! STUPID Minecraft so I didn't save it so I switched Minecraft off (without saving and going to menu) so my house would still be there when I go back on it but that didn't work! I was so disappointed!

Geez, I get lost in mine shafts with valuables all the time. The only option I have is to either spend an hour looking for the path I came from or commit Minecraft suicide...

When you're deep underground and you can find your way back up, you're gonna need quite a bit of patience to dig your way back to the top. Unless you're on creative mode.

3 Your pet cat/dog dying beacause you accedentally left clicked

I had a pet sheep, it was yellow and it only lived for a couple Minecraft days.
RIP yeLLo ShEeP 2021-1997

You see I made my own wolf pack with dens and more I was playing with my friend and her wolves and I accidentally hit her and her wolves went after me and then my wolves went murder mode on her wolves and then everything was pretty much chaos so I pretty much started a wolf war with just one accidental hit. :/


My sister and I play Minecraft on our Xbox together. In the best world we had EVER created, there were many wolf packs, so one day we decided to get one dog each. They were nice dogs that my sis and I adored! One day, we were cutting trees that were next to each other, and guess what, I accidentally hit her. Then her dog attacked me and my dog attacked her dog and there was a big dog fight. We exited the game right then and there and vowed to never go back on that world. EVEN WORSE, THIS isn't THE FIRST TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED! I wish I knew how to prevent these things from happening!

4 A creeper destroying your house

The only way a creeper can really destroy your house is if it's small (I usually build big houses), but it's still an awful experience if you had something important in that area (such as a chest containing valuables). - allamassal

Once my first day on knew world a creeper outside me house blows my walls up and then 4 more follow with no like 15 spiders 11 skeletons 7 zombies and 1 little one luckily I just escaped but then a creeper killed me from behind so never trust creepers or you wont live for 1 night

Yeah it is one of the worst things in that game. One time I went to my house before it was night but then 6 stupid creepers blew up my beloved house! I want revenge on those guys!

A creeper destroying you house is okay Butt if A creeper destroy your chest IS NOT GOOD

5 Accidentally pressing Q instead of W and throwing thing in lava

This hasn't happened to me yet, and has to do with the default "drop" key being right next to the default "forward" key on a standard keyboard. - allamassal

I accidentally threw a ENCHANTED DIAMOND SWORD into someone's hopper

I threw my Minecraft diary in lava on accident. Don't ask.

I made my drop button R. It works much better than Q.

6 Dying/getting lost in the nether with valuable items

My cat walked on my keyboard and I lost my focus and fell in lava and lost a lot of XP and quartz
RIP Cat 2018-2019

I almost got lost in the Nether a couple times, but eventually managed to find my way back. - allamassal

Just died today, spent like 2 hours to find a nether fortress got some blaze rods, and then I realized I was like tons and tons of miles lost from my Portal, started to think fast because I was running out of food then I started following North, then I dropped to the lava and lost a full set of diamond enchanted armor with diamond enchanted sword plus the blaze rods... :"(

Why would you bring any type of valuable items through the open plain of the Nether? If using it as a fast-travel thing, then make a tunnel or something.

7 Being shoved off a cliff by a cow

When I was in creative a pig shoved me off a cliff but I was lucky it was creative and after I fell down I couldn't see the pig properly but I spotted the pig had red eyes after pushing me off lol

Happens to me every time - the always push me in the lava in the nether :(

A cow never pushed me off, but I was doing good in the nether, walk in, and a creeper accidently got in to the nether portal and blew me off the nether cliff and into the lava. :(

It's the worst when a sheep does it to you. Sheep are evil.

8 Finding Diamond, Gets Killed, spawns In the Middle of No Where

Happened to me once. So mad that time. - Coolguy66666

Happens to me all the +++ time! @

Tip: if u make a new map brake wood from trees to mark the trail where to go to your house if you will respawn

Well its uour fault for not having a bed

9 Your only pickaxe breaks right as you find diamonds

UGH! That happened to me yesterday! It's the WORST!

That is the worst luck in history! Why is it not number one?

Uug! I HATE this! Once found whole wall of diamond ore... NOT kidding. Pickax was the right kind, iron, and I mined one diamond, BOOM! Pick axe gone. It was enchanted!

That's like something from an animation about failure.

10 Building an awesome thing and then respawning and losing it

Oh my gosh, yes! I built a massive sea village by making a huge enclosed wall in the ocean and using sponges to dry the water out. I made awesome houses in it, and even a dungeon for the quest I planned to do with my sister (I set up adventures for us to play). Funny story really, I made a dark hall in one part, and a Guardian in in, to jumpscare us. I went in to add some finishing touches to it, and got trapped in the 'horror map'. The guardian popped out of nowhere, flopping around wildly, scaring the derp out of me. I ran into a room, and shut the door behind me, terrified. Later, I went home, and thought I had mapped out where to find it. Sadly, I haven't rediscovered in to this day. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

Once I built a 20 x 50 obsidian house and it had TNT under it if a mob ever entered my house, they step on a pressure plate, and blow up and die. Apparently, a group of charged creepers got in and it blew up a whole bunch of enchanted armor, swords. I was raging mad wanting to get revenge on those things!

That's why creepers where made.

If u make a new map mark your trail by braking trees and you are next to your thing!

The Contenders

11 Herobrine is after you

I left my house once after having a dog I always loved. When I came back, it was gone. Same house, there was an armor stand in my house. It was gone when I came back but a week later, looking to ifnd it missing day after day, it came BACK! I never updated it either. Also I see the cross. A neat circle of sand IN THE MIDDLE OF A FOREST with a watered cross right in the middle.

I am currently being hunted by herobrine, but I'm sick of running away. I will stand my ground and not leave

Herobrine isn’t real though, most of the time I only remember my Christmas Steve being burnt down for some reason

Take this off the list, it’s fake. - BlueBobYT

12 Going to the Nether and spawn right beneath lava, not noticing you're right beneath lava and dying

That's why I only go to the nether in creative lol

Oh my gosh, you will die!

Stupid ghast.

They have a whopping 100 hp
And they deal MAJOR damage to you unless you have enchanted stuff or
Diamond armor.
Good luck with these in a mob arena.

13 Getting your own iron golem turned against you

The Iron Golems you make don't really attack you, but Golems which Naturally Spawned, You cannot Steal stuff from blacksmiths or Harass The villagers, or your dead (Unless you have full enchanted Diamond armor and a great Enchanted Sword, then you probably can then fend off the Golem, unless there is more than two! )

That's bad really bad. I said it once ill say it again.. That's bad really bad. I said it twice il say it again.. That's bad really bad. I said it thrice so I wont say it again.. Cause that would be bad really bad

I once killed an iron golem that was hostile towards me with very little gear. To all those people saying it's extremely hard to do so.

Tries to trade with villager
Accidentally hits wrong key...
Dies and loses all trade material (lots of emeralds) - Haumea

14 Going to the nether and getting surprised by 5 ghasts shooting you

That happen to me earlier and to top if off my portal was in a awesome shrine I built and they blew it up :((((((

And to make things worse, they ruin your portal and you're stuck with them!

Just do the "return to sender trick"

This thing happens to me a lot
DUDE I go there with my best stuff T_T

You see this is why I quit faction servers as a total (unless I'M admin)

I'm waiting for a drop waited for 30 minutes 27 seconds left a stupid person kills me with diamond armor and steals it

It seems like everyone always does this to me

Oh my god so true, on WoodyCraft (horrible server), I was making builds and using item frames, well someone invisible was destroying them, I hate that server -EmileeBrooke

16 Not having food

True :( all I had was 1 RAW mutton and a rabbits foot

It was nighttime and my house was right over the hill, no food, and it was hardcore. I suck.

U can't die of hunger but it can make u go down to 1 health

You can in Hard mode. (same with Hardcore since it sets your difficulty to hard mode) - ahmettrPro

I hate when that happens

18 Dying in "Hardcore" mode

If you die on Hardcore, your Hardcore map gets deleted - CasinLetsGoBowling

Really?! Your map gets deleted?!

Before dying, that is

That's why,don't play hardcore on your favourite world.

19 Going to the Nether and a ghast disables your portal and you have no flint and steel or obsidian

Then you decide to make a safe place to put down a chest to put all your gear in it so you can commit suicide, but then you fall in the lava and die with everything...

You can not get back

Reignite it with the ghast, or /gamemode creative. on the Xbox, never save in the nether. when you neex to, go back to overworld and do it. if portal is gone, exit world and rejoin then your back

20 Getting Buried by a happy face made of sand

This happened to me before

21 15 zombies attacking you at the same time

I made a nice house in creative and switched to survival. There were bosses everywhere in my house. They killed me. - RiverClanRocks

Easy just keep running and get one at a time I have done it before

Yes! This happened to me before!

And your on hard mode.
Your so dead.

22 Dying before you have a bed, and losing everything because you spawn far away

Make your house close to spawn instead of wasting time wandering far away to make a house.

God I hate that - dinosaur

So True! I hate that!

23 Getting killed in Berserk mode
24 Getting excited when finding diamond and it falls into lava

I mine around my diamonds now, and this is very rare anyways.

25 Getting trolled from someone as Herobrine
26 Needing one more piece of sugar can to make a map

Wonder if you live far from sand

You can farm sugar cane.

27 Getting Lava'd
28 Getting struck by lightning

Never happened to me

29 Being one block away from finishing something

For example, being one stair away from finsishing a staircase aand having to make another 6.

32 Getting excited when finding diamond and only getting one piece

That's not possible unless something overlaps the rest if the ores, because diamond always spawns in veins of at least two. Once I was mining, I saw diamond, I mined it and couldn't see any more. Knowing there literally has to be more I mined around it and found more diamond. True story.

It happened to me once... I spent 3 days mining for diamond and when I found the diamond, I wanted to cry with happiness. Now I just want to cry.

Happened to me once. I digged all around it, like 5 blocks in all 8 sides and none.. maybe Xbox glitch

At least you can make a shovel,

33 Spawning in the middle of nowhere

I once spawned in an ocean. is that supposed to be rare? Happened 2 times now

34 Briefing

Someone Briefed My Home Once I Blew Up At The guy loved yelling at him haha

35 Losing your way in the end

Happens it's the worst

36 You have a pet pig that gets zapped by lightning and despawns

If it gets zapped it turne into a zombie pigman

37 Dying, and then re-spawn and never find the area you died and if you do, all your stuff de-spawned already

This once happened to me when I had a half set of iron tools and iron armour and then I died... had to delete my best seed that day...

It happened to me... still crying...

38 Get killed by a friend you really trust

He killed me so hard I hate him now

That is why I don't mine at lava spawning levels with him anymore...

Never play anything but single-player.

39 You put your best stuff in a chest and your best friend took it

My friend is greedy and stole everything without permission. - TeamRocket747

Haha this always happens

40 Gravel falling on your head

That happened to me before.

On multiplayer when your inventory is full of cool stuff? Yeah I know -EmileeBrooke

41 Getting banned on a server for "Being Trolled"
42 Your best build being griefed completely

I was building a ROBLOX noob pixel art in minecraft, and my friends dirty little brother put cake on my build. I deleted the cake, and my friend teleported me to his arena. After a while, I went back to the build, and his bro built dicks around my build. I deleted those too. Next, I saw lava coming from the sky. AND IT LANDED ON MY BUILD. My friend rejoined and nothing bad happened to my build until 5 minutes later, when my friend's bro built end crystals around it, deleted the bedrock, and HALF OF MY BUILD WAS DEMOLISHED. I now play with my friend when his brother is offline. - TeamRocket747

THIS my friends is why I live isolated from absolutely everybody. I've learned not to trust ANYBODY!


My brother puts lava in my best build:'( :'( :'( :'(

43 Witnessing dating

Oh gosh yes. Some creeps were making out online on a server. It was an experience I wish I could forget -shudders- - Emberflight_of_StormClan


There was a girl and I didn't have a boys or girls name and she said can I date you please and I said no I'm a girl and she went and started dating some pig dude

Sometimes I go to the dating areas and mess about, to try and stop "couples" existing. - TCMMKLA

46 Your mom joins your server while your friends are online

You: Alright, guys! The epic battle starts in 3...2...
Your mom (who appears out of nowhere): Oh! Are you playing too?
You: Mom, we're doing an epic ba-
Your mom: Here's some diamonds, sweetie.

That'll be the worst thing ever.

Yeah right. Mom doesn't, and never will, play Minecraft, and my dad hates it. - Emberflight_of_StormClan

No, that's cool, if your mum plays Minecraft. If you think she'll embarrass you, get on a different server
