Minecraft is a relaxing game to play after a long day, but the sound of a Creeper can ruin anyone’s night, as we saw happen to this unsuspecting Twitch streamer.

There’s no worse feeling than having your hard work of gathering materials and making a base completely undone by a Creeper who is dead set on blowing everything to bits.

These green critters seem to always pop up at the absolute worst times, and as soon as you hear that fuse lit, you know something terrible is about to happen.

Creepers are extremely dangerous.

Most Minecraft players would silently accept their fate once the Creeper shows up, but streamers don’t have this luxury as they have an audience watching their fears become a reality.

Twitch streamer EpicDonutDude_ was minding his own business harvesting his crops when he heard what appeared to be a Creeper become set for detonation.

Minecraft underwent a resurgence in 2019.

Only thing is, the noise of the monster was actually a notification from his Twitch stream instead of being an in-game sound.

Before DonutDude realized this, he had already let out an audible gasp and jumped in his seat, so while nothing exploded in his Minecraft world, his chat exploded in laughter.

“Oh f**k me, dude,” he said as he slumped down on his desk. “Honestly, dude, that was so well-timed.”

Almost immediately, the chat started spamming the “OMEGALUL” emote, which shows they got a good kick out of the whole ordeal.

If there’s a bright side to all of this, it’s that nothing was actually blown up, so there weren’t any repairs that had to be made.

Minecraft remains one of the most popular games in the world.

He does live very dangerously by even having this as a notification on his stream because false alarms like this can happen all the time.

While he was able to escape without a scratch this time, there’s no telling how the next encounter will go.

The Super Smash Bros. Ultimate community was left divided after it was revealed that Minecraft protagonist Steve would be the next character to join the fight. While some were excited for the major crossover, others – including esports pros – were less enthusiastic about the upcoming DLC.

Smash Bros Ultimate made its debut in 2018, and over two years later has continued to evolve into what is the biggest franchise crossover in gaming history. From Persona to Final Fantasy – the Nintendo Switch title has it all.

While many fans were excited by the iconic mascot’s addition to the roster, others were left conflicted over the Mojang protagonist’s inclusion.

For instance, popular esports pro and 2019 EVO champion, MkLeo, took to social media to voice his disappointment. “OK! i decided to not post my reaction to this bs cuz minecraft fans are gonna come after me for not liking this thing omg so pissed.”

MkLeo wasn’t enthusiastic about the Minecraft DLC.

The Joker main also added, “its ok, there are still 4 spots! Dont lose faith.” The pro was not alone – other fans voiced their disappointments as well, such as one user who exclaimed, “What an absolute joke the last few dlc characters have been trash add this “character” to that list.” Another player agreed and said, “What kind of trash is this. Where’s our Sora, 2B, or Dante. Bro nobody want this.”

Smash Ultimate fans were not happy with the Minecraft reveal, either.

Popular fighting game content creator Maximilian ‘Maximilian Dood’ Christiansen also shared his disappointment on YouTube. “I don’t f**king believe it. I’m going to turn this stream off right now. Going to turn this s**t off. I get it. An iconic character. I get it. I genuinely understand Sakurai, it doesn’t mean I have to like it. But I understand.”

Despite the negative reactions, not everyone was down on the Minecraft DLC. Team Liquid’s Samuel ‘Dabuz’ Buzby praised the announcement and said, “This wild ride is exactly what I paid for with Fighter’s Pass 2. Give me chaos, no boring expected reveals.” Legendary Smash pro Ezra ‘Samsora’ Morris also celebrated the reveal by changing his profile pic to the Minecraft fighter and tweeted, “I changed my mind” in response to a 2019 tweet he had made about the Mojang title.

Smash pros weighed in.

Regardless of how you feel about the new DLC fighter, there is no denying that Minecraft has become one of the most iconic gaming franchises of all time. So much so that in 2014, Microsoft dropped over $2.4 billion to acquire it.

Smash Ultimate is, at the end of the day, a celebration of the industry. As many players pointed out, the Mojang mascot’s inclusion was surely inevitable given the property’s importance.
