Steve is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. This character was confirmed along with his palette swaps, Alex, Zombie and Enderman on October 19, 2020.


Steve is the default skin of the Player in Minecraft. The name Steve was invented by developer Markus "Notch" Persson as a joke and was often formatted as "Steve?" prior to being formally adopted as the default name of the avatar. Before this, the name "Mr. Minecraft" was used for a guest role in Super Meat Boy. The character of Steve, along with the rest of the Minecraft world, is intended to be gender-neutral so as to avoid forcing the player to make decisions about gender. Despite this, as Steve has a traditionally "masculine" appearance and name, a feminine alternative named Alex was introduced in 2014; choosing Alex adjusts the model's arm proportions to be thinner, which is officially referred to as a "slim" model. In their Mr. Sakurai Presents video, Masahiro Sakurai also uses male and female pronouns respectively to refer to them, confirming further that at least their Smash incarnations are gendered.

In Java Edition, it is possible to customize the avatar's appearance with a template (allowing for entirely player-made appearances), while other versions of the game offer skin packs (mostly based on other IPs, both from gaming like Fallout, Banjo-Kazooie, and Super Mario; and non-gaming media such as The Simpsons, Adventure Time, and Stranger Things). Within the limited lore of the game, Steve and Alex are indicated to simply be vessels of the actual player's manifestation in the Minecraft world, having no other discernable personality or role. Most of Steve and Alex's abilities come from tools. Unarmed, they are capable of walking, running, jumping, crawling, punching, and crafting small items (on a two-by-two grid). These abilities are augmented by the tools they create (usually on a Crafting Table, which utilizes a three-by-three grid). As a sandbox game, Minecraft has a variety of options available to the player depending on their playstyle: mining, building, farming, hunting, and adventuring are only a few.
