Game character Minecraft skins
If your adventure map has a princess waiting for you in the final dungeon, it would only be proper to wear some canonical threads. This Link skin recreates the Legend of Zelda’s protagonist with exceptionally lovely detail, including the shield strapped to his back.
Link may be the hero in every game, but the real star of The Legend of Zelda is the lady in the title. Recent games over in Nintendo land have shown her off as being as kick-ass as Link - if not more - so bring that excitement to Minecraft with this Princess Zelda skin.
Scare the willies out of fellow players with this Slenderman skin. Simply log onto a nighttime server and gradually move closer and closer to unsuspecting players whilst they’re looking in other directions.
Forget Slender Man, Freddy Fazbear is the new king of scaring YouTubers. Take on the role of Five Nights at Freddy’s animatronic antagonist and terrorize entire servers with your mere presence… unless of course people just think you’re dressed as a cuddly bear.
The classic shape-stacking game comes alive, quite literally, in this man-shaped approximation of Tetris.
When you consider how sinister the banking industry is these days it’s no leap to cast the Monopoly Man as the biggest bastard in board gaming. So if you fancy playing the villain in your next Minecraft role-play session, consider him there in the bowler hat.
Of all the game-themed Minecraft skins, this one of Guybrush from Monkey Island 2 is our favourite. The block-based graphics of Minecraft perfectly capture the look and feel of the classic Lucasarts adventure. Now go be a mighty pirate!
Assassin’s Creed Altair
Bring a spot of masculinity to Minecraft with gaming’s biggest man-hero Duke Nukem. Just because his last game was the pits doesn’t mean we have to throw him in the trash, OK?
Minecraft’s world, with all those blocks and mushrooms, looks a little like Nintendo’s fabled Mushroom Kingdom. It just needs crowning with the prodigal son: the legendary plumbing and heating engineer Mario.
Well if Mario’s coming along for the ride Luigi needs to come along too. The ideal skin for younger siblings or friends using your computer.
Minecraft’s Mushroom biomes are in desperate need of a monarchy, so fulfil the royalty quota by playing as Princess Peach. Just remember to keep the Goomba population under control and everything will be fine.
Plants vs. Zombies
Choosing to spend its time tormenting gardeners and plants, this undead goofball is a much friendlier alternative to Minecraft’s usual array of flesh-eating foes.
To really hammer in those Borderlands vibes, we suggest loading up a cell-shaded texture pack and aimlessly attacking everything in sight when you equip this awesome Psycho skin.
Banjo’s the bear with the know-how, previously seen building things with astonishing dexterity in a console game. Wear this skin and you’ll have access to all those engineering smarts (we think).
The master of covert operations sneaks into Minecraft in the form of this Solid Snake skin. Perfect for infiltrating your friends’ builds for a little bit of friendly sabotage.
