Trivia

The game allows you to choose 4 different game modes: creative, in which the player can fly and have unlimited resources and survival, where the player needs to survive and obtain their own resources. Adventure, where blocks are unbreakable, unless you have certain tools. Spectator, where you can fly, but not interact with the surrounding environment, and Hardcore, which is survival locked on hardest difficulty, and death deletes your world.

One block in Minecraft is 1 meter. So one Minecraft world is larger than the surface of the earth, and is roughly the size of Neptune.
Early in the game's history, a user posted a story on the Minecraft forums. It said that the user spawned in a new world. As the user was exploring, he encountered several structures that didn't normally spawn in the game, including, but not limited to: underwater pyramids and 1x2 tunnels. The user thought nothing of it until, in the distance, he saw a figure, resembling Steve(the default player skin) with his eyes rolled back. As soon as the user saw this entity, it ran away quickly in to the fog, but not before the user took an image of the mysterious being. It spawned many CREEPYPASTAS and stories, but Notch has stated that Herobrine does not exist. However, he can be seen in different artwork for the game, but this is likely a joke. In many patch notes, it will say, "removed Herobrine", this is because Notch wanted people to know that Herobrine isn't real.
The creeper is a real life plant called peat, which in real life, explodes (in a way) to spread spores.
The sound of a ghast is C418's cat.
The End was originally going to be the opposite of the nether, which is based off of hell, if you look at what biome you are in while in the End, it will say "Sky".
Minecraft was originally called "Cave Game", then it was renamed to "Minecraft: The Order of the Stone", then finally shortened to Minecraft.
On the menu screen, there is a 1 in 10,000 chance that the "Minecraft" title would appear to be "Minceraft."
There is a hidden face underneath the pumpkins on snow golems.
