What are the best Minecraft skins? Fashion faux pas are serious business and it is not just a case of following the latest trends or knowing this season’s wardrobe essentials. Instead, it is an ongoing battle to turn up wearing one of the best Minecraft skins to make all your friends jealous.
Whether it is superheroes, characters from your favourite games, film icons, or creative mashups you need, we have sourced some of the very best threads for your sartorial pleasure. So, to ensure you are the talk of the server the next time you log in, we have the best very Minecraft skins for you.
There’s no point messing around in the amazing worlds created by the best minds if you’re not looking just as special. If you’re playing on the Bedrock Edition of Minecraft, the new character creator lets you customise your character model with numerous free and premium Minecraft skins, so you can roam around the coolest play areas generated by Minecraft seeds as the pixel version of yourself. But if you’re looking for something a little more fantastical to fit in with the best Minecraft mods, skins are still the way to go – check out the best Minecraft skins below.
Here are the best Minecraft skins:
Huggable but deadly are characteristics for which we all strive for when looking for Minecraft skins – and in real life, come to think of it. Now you can have just that by equipping your avatar with this Chewbacca skin. Grab a friend who looks a bit like Harrison Ford and explore the galaxy together – there aren’t many Star Wars games that let you play as a Wookie, but now you can finally unleash the Wookie within.
Don this Minecraft Star Wars skin to resemble one of the galaxy’s most notorious and influential gangsters/gelatinous blobs. You will need to speak Huttese if you want to do this Minecraft skin justice, so here are some key phrases:
Moulee-rah – “Money!”
H’chu apenkee – “Hello!”
Wee now kong bantha poodoo – “Now you’re bantha fodder!”
We are not quite sure how you will pull off Darth Maul’s double-bladed lightsaber look, but everyone else in the server will likely be too busy fleeing to notice you’re only wielding a bronze pickaxe.
Ol’ shellhead is an extremely popular Marvel characters, thanks in no small part to his iconic hot-rod red armour. This is a detailed replica of his classic armour, complete with triangle chest piece and palm repulsors.
With his cute breezeblock of a head and stubby little ears, you would never believe that Batman could have such a tragic past. Help him avenge his parents by putting on this Minecraft Batman skin and constructing a better Gotham, free of dodgy little alleyways where muggers can hang out.
Do not let go of your Frozen dreams. Dress up in this Elsa skin, travel straight to the nearest snowy biome, and get building a massive ice castle fit for a Disney princess.
The panda is furry, pampered, and loved by all. Grab this adorable Minecraft skin if you like the sound of that lifestyle. For extra roleplay points, spend your time eating bamboo and tumbling off things in a way that makes the internet do a collective awwwwww.
These flat-faced dogs are so bad at life they cannot even breathe properly. Don this adorable Minecraft dog skin and the likelihood that your mishaps will go viral will increase massively… probably.
Taking inspiration from the much-memed and generally awesome music video for Bad Guy, this Billie Eilish Minecraft skin is simple from a distance, but brilliantly detailed up close – take a look at the shading of her blue hair.
We do not care what grown-ups have to say, unicorns exist, OK! This unicorn Minecraft skin might just be a blonde-haired girl wearing a unicorn onesie, but our faith in magical horned horses remains unwavering.
Playing on a Pixelmon Minecraft server is just not right without wearing the correct Pokémon trainer attire, or Minecraft skins. The iconic baseball cap, waistcoat, and fingerless gloves in this Minecraft Pokemon skin will shout loud that you are a Pokemon pro; every Snorlax in the land will raise an eyelid.
This skin may be lost on some of our younger readers, but suffice it to say that this ’90s cartoon builder was pretty great at fixing things. Obviously, you’ll have to rely on your Minecraft know-how to actually fix things in this world, but at least you’ll look the part with this Bob the Builder skin. Very appropriate for one of the best builder games on PC.
She’s fast, cool, and has a jarringly inauthentic London accent. This Tracer skin only covers one of those points, but with enough detail that you don’t need to bother putting on a voice or sprinting around – everyone will recognise you as one of the best Overwatch characters.
The demented operating system grows legs with this GlaDOS skin. We are not sure if that makes her more or less terrifying, but we love it all the same.
More Minecraft help:
The classic shape-stacking game comes alive, quite literally, in this man-shaped approximation of Tetris. One of the best puzzle games of all time deserves one of the best Minecraft skins.
Guybrush from Monkey Island 2 is one of the best Minecraft skins when it comes to game recreations. The block-based graphics of Minecraft perfectly capture the look and feel of the classic LucasArts adventure game.
It is not often that Minecraft is gross, but if you insist on sticking something sickly into your game, try this Transplant Minecraft skin. It is a ‘person’ made from an eyeball grafted onto a heart, which jumps around on a severed thumb. Charming.
Neat fact: apparently Creepers feel dry and crisp like autumn leaves, not slimy like many imagine. This fact will not help you act more Creeper-ish when dressed up in this 90% accurate Minecraft Creeper skin (the legs are just impossible to do).
The Lovecraftian horror himself brought to life through the medium of Minecraft skins. The work on his tentacle beard is particularly impressive. You cannot deny they look horrifically slimy. The sight of this subterranean skin lurking deep within the mines is bound to frighten your friends – who needs horror games?
Very textured. Many pixels. Such funny Minecraft skin. So Doge. Much polygons. Wow.
The ghost of Notch’s dead brother, granted immortality in Minecraft’s code and now available as one of the top Minecraft skins. Of course, the story is nothing more than creepy-pasta, but that won’t stop you pretending it’s real, will it?
Finally, a skin that effectively answers one of life’s greatest questions: what would a human with taco shell skin and seasoned beef innards look like after a fatal zombie attack?
The best Minecraft skins are designed to help you blend into your environment. For those days when you are working above ground, consider this Over World skin the perfect camouflage.
If you want a badass look that tells everyone you will not take any messing from evil aliens, then this Space Paladin suit of power armour is exactly what you need. The Dead Space-inspired light up spine is a nice touch.
Finding good female skins for Minecraft is a bit of a nightmare. They all seem to have exactly the same faces and hairstyle, making individuality a challenge. Bright Girl may share the same face as her clone sisters, but that bright blue hoodie and stripy leggings will certainly make you stand out from the crowd.
Santa is all well and good, but isn’t it time we upgraded? This new model of everyone’s favourite list-checking, toy-dispensing home invader comes in HD – that’s less festivity, more grit. Set up shop in a snowy biome and have yourself a very Minecraft Christmas.
There you go, the best Minecraft skins you can slap onto your blocky self. Obviously you’re not going to beat us in a ‘who wore it better’ competition in the Star Wars category but you can give yourself an extra chance and make your game look much better with Minecraft shaders. Also, if you’re looking for more from Mojang’s masterwork in terms of gameplay, these Minecraft servers are a great place to start. That’s in from us though, we’ve got some new blocky skins to try on.
