The greatest thing about Minecraft is that it gives players the ability to create almost anything they can imagine. We’re constantly amazed by what the game’s pro-builders can create given unlimited resources and space as well as plenty of free time. We also love seeing some of our favorite characters come to life in Minecraft’s infinite sandbox. There’s nothing quite as satisfying as a Pikachu built to be the size of a Minecraft mountain. Check out this list of our 9 favorite Minecraft cartoon builds:
Of all the characters on this list I think that the Bender, the foul-tempered robot from Futurama would be the most excited to be immortalized with a sky scraping Minecraft monument. This one comes complete with Bender’s trademark cigar and equally trademark attitude.
Stewie Griffin (Family Guy)
Of course I could be wrong. Stewie Griffin the matricidal baby megalomaniac from Family Guy would probably be pretty excited with this massive pixel-art likeness as well.
Queen Elsa (Frozen)
I purposely didn’t include a ton of pixel-art on this list because I think that generally 3D builds are a little more impressive, but this rendering of Elsa from an obscure movie called Frozen is pretty awesome. The creator obviously worked hard to capture a level of detail that isn’t usually possible with 2-D.
Homer Simpson (The Simpsons)
In the pantheon of influential cartoon characters it’s hard to think of any that are as long-running, influential, or important as Homer Simpson, so I wholeheartedly approve of this massive Minecraft monument to everyone’s favorite dim-wit dad.
Part of Pikachu’s charm is that he’s a tiny, adorable electric mouse, but this creator obviously decided to render Pikachu just a little tiny bit larger than his actual size. We’ll just chalk it up to his place in the hierarchy of anime characters we love.
I know I said no more pixel art but I’m a liar and if you don’t know that by now I really can’t help you. Also I couldn’t help myself when it came to this excellent rendering of chibi Deadpool. Someone show this to Ryan Reynolds, we need that Deadpool movie stat!
Mario and Luigi (Super Mario Brothers)
There are few gaming characters more iconic than Pikachu, but if anyone is going to wear the crown then it would have to be the plumber brothers Mario and Luigi, heroes of the Super Mario franchise and all of its many spinoffs, sequels and iterations, including cartoons, live action movies, and more games than we can count. Here they are looming over the Minecraft landscape just like they loom over gaming culture…and our hearts.
Phineas (Phineas and Ferb)
You don’t see too much solo fan art out there for Phineas of Disney’s Phineas and Ferb so naturally we were impressed with this massive Phineas build.
If there’s one thing that I always want to be prepared for, it’s the inevitable rise of the robot army that will conquer the earth and enslave humanity. Now that YouTube is aiding and abetting the bots it’s only a matter of time and I want to make sure that our eventual robot overlords know that I’ve been on their side all along, so here’s an excellent build of Wall-E to let the robots know I care.
Normally I like to stick to the script, I said 9 videos and I meant NINE VIDEOS. However…do you want to see two giant Marios made out of TNT explode? … Do you?
I DO! HERE YOU GO!
