Minecraft Steve: Find out more about Minecraft's main character.
You want to learn more about Minecraft Steve? Minecraft allows you to play as almost anyone you want, especially if mods are used and you have custom skins. You can play as Iron Man, Dracula or Jotaro Kujo – whatever you like.
But that's not why you're here. You are here because you want more information about Steve, the default character. Here are some interesting facts about Minecraft's main character, Steve.
Let's start with that name. It was originally a joke, because it was so generic. The community loved it and Steve was named the official character in the Bedrock Edition. Steve wears a light blue top, jeans and smart-casual shoes to complete the outfit. Although it's not the most creative, it does have colour.
Steve is one of the default skins for the player. Alex has long, orange hair and a more earthy colour palette. There is a chance that you could spawn as either one of them when you start a new game. However, it depends on which version you are playing. According to Lego Club Magazine Alex and Steve are currently dating. Steve is a master of alchemy, mining, and building. Alex enjoys building, but prefers to explore and hunt. Maybe it was their shared love for construction that brought them together.
Statistically, Steve stands at six feet tall and has the strength of an athlete and speed of a superhuman. He can sneak at 4.7km/h, walks at 15.5km/h, and sprints at 20.2km/h. Although Usain Bolt's speed is 44.72 km/h, Steve can maintain his ridiculous pace for quite a while. Try running at that speed for a few minutes. It's not easy.
Steve's strength is easy to measure as he can punch through trees, the floor and can run around in a gold armour suit that would weigh in the neighborhood of 3,000kg. It's like carrying 48 people around on your back.
Last but not the least, Minecraft's unique quirk is that its Zombies appear to be wearing Steve-style clothes. This could be due to many reasons. Perhaps the whole world bought the exact same clothes in the same sale. Or, maybe those are the only clothes that are available to most people and that's why everyone dresses the same.
There is also another disturbing implication. It is possible that Steve is only the latest in a long list of cloned Steves. You can take control of a new Steve by dying in the game. The old Steve will turn into a Zombie and hunt you down, continuing the cycle. Although it is a theory, it is impossible to disprove.
