Anyone who knows Minecraft will have heard of one of the biggest mysteries: Herobrine! For years, fans have wondered if Herobrine even exists, and now the World Seed has been found. We are one step closer to the legend!

If for some reason you've never heard of Minecraft Herobrine, a quick recap: in 2010, someone posted on 4chan about seeing a strange character in their Minecraft single-player game. Shortly after, a streamer named Copeland posted alleged proof images, the story picked up steam, and BANG: the biggest creepypasta legend in Minecraft, Herobrine, was born.

So, what exactly happened now?

Okay, guys, sit back. This one is pretty cool.

Herobrine seems to have only been seen in one particular World Seed. Reminder: each world in Minecraft is specially calculated and given a World Seed that contains the unique features of that world. Now someone has found the Herobrine World Seed! What?!

The Minecraft Herobrine World Seed was discovered by andrew_555 (Kminster) on January 16, as he announced on Reddit. According to andrew_555, the process took several months. We'll spare you the complex details, you can read them in the linked reddit entry. What we do want to share with you, however, are the details about the World Seed itself:

  • Seed: 478868574082066804
  • Version: Java Alpha 1.0.16_02
