This article is about the removed mob. For the controllable character (the default skin has the same name), see Player.
It has been suggested that this page be merged with Human. [discuss]
If this merge affects many pages or may potentially be controversial, do not merge the page until a consensus is reached.
Reason: This mob is actually the same mob as the Human, just that the model was changed during Indev before becoming the Human again. (The Human page itself is pending a split, though, so it'd be better to wait and then merge this into either Mob or Monster, depending on which entity it corresponds to.)
This page describes content that exists only in outdated versions of Minecraft. 
This mob existed only in Java Edition Indev: Versions 0.31 20100129 and 0.31 20100130

Upon death, Steve would not fall over to the ground or flash red or white and appear to die, as most mobs do. It would just disappear shortly thereafter, and drop the items it was designated to drop.


Upon death, Steve drops:

Steve was made by Dock, the artist for Minecraft at the time, along with the similar-looking mob Black Steve.

20100131Steve has been removed.


  • Steve, as well as all the other mobs made by Dock, have no animation because of inability of MD3 loader. They just glide around in the same pose. However, the MD3 model itself contains an animation of it walking.[more information needed]
