Steve is the default player character and protagonist in the sandbox survival video game Minecraft, owned by Mojang Studios and created by Markus Persson. Created to be the game's first person avatar, Steve has since become an icon of modern video gaming as a whole. He had starred in multiple games, and are depicted as a cubed humanoid with varying skins and clothes.


Steve is the name of the default skin of the Player in Minecraft. The name Steve was invented by developer Markus "Notch" Persson as a joke and was often formatted as "Steve?" prior to being formally adopted as the default name of the avatar.[1] Prior to the name being fully adopted, the name "Mr. Minecraft" was used for a guest role in Super Meat Boy. The character of Steve, along with the rest of the Minecraft world, is intended to be gender-neutral so as to avoid forcing the player to make decisions about gender. Despite this, as Steve has a traditionally "masculine" appearance and name, a feminine alternative named Alex was introduced in 2014. In Java Edition, it is possible to customize the avatar's appearance with a template, allowing for entirely player-made appearances.[citation needed]


Steve first appears in the original Minecraft, where he is the player's default main player character. Very little is known about him, but within the limited lore of the game, Steve is indicated to simply be vessels of the actual player's manifestation in the Minecraft world, having no other discernable personality or role. The character, along with the rest of Minecraft 's mobs, is intended to be gender-neutral so as to avoid forcing the player to make decisions about gender. Most of Steve's abilities come from tools. Unarmed, they are capable of walking, running, jumping, crawling, punching, and crafting small items. These abilities are augmented by the tools they create, usually via the use of a crafting table, after mining some resources from specific tools, such as pickaxes, axes, and more. As a sandbox game, Minecraft has a variety of options available to the player depending on their playstyle: mining, building, farming, hunting, and adventuring are only a few.[citation needed]

He also appears in the spin-off game, Minecraft Dungeons, where he can be selected as one of the main playable characters at the beginning of the game.

Other appearances[edit]

Steve appears as a playable character via downloadable content in the crossover fighting game Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.[2] The character was announced for inclusion on October 1, 2020, and was subsequently released on October 13th. Steve's attacks use a variety of Minecraft items, tools, and blocks, such as the sword, pickaxes, and TNT. His moveset also allow the use of the crafting table, in which it can be used to craft tools and weapons much like in the original game. The developers of the game encountered difficulties in Steve's development, such as having to rework the stage to account for the existence of Minecraft blocks.[3] Steve's alternate costumes change his name and appearance to that of Alex or the common Minecraft enemy types Zombie and Enderman.[4]


Steve, alongside the hostile mob Creeper, has since become a video game icon in video game history, and has become one of the most important characters of Minecraft. He had been targeted for numerous pop culture references and parodies. He also has been featured in multiple Lego Minecraft sets and has been one of the main focuses of the merchandises.[5][6]
