The Top 5 Most Useless Items in Minecraft

Hey, guys! Sorry I didn’t post yesterday; I had a graduation to go to and it lasted most of the day. I was going to make a Top 5 Rarest Items in Animal Jam, but I decided to do this one instead. Without further ado, my list of the most useless items in Minecraft!

5. Gold

This one is at the bottom of my list because gold can sometimes be useful. It’s rare and decorative, but golden weapons and tools are as useful as wooden ones but with half of the durability. I mean, really!! That’s also like leather armor, but cut in half. You’d need a durability 2000 enchantment on that baby to make it worthwhile. It’s pretty useful for architecture, since it looks great, but practically, it’s just stupid.

4. Diamond Hoes

Diamond hoes are good for pranking friends and making long-lasting hoes, but why waste your diamonds on something that could be achieved with a bunch of wooden ones?? Granted, it’s a fun way to use up rivals’ diamonds but not leave them totally poor, but it’s not a great use for them.

3. Dragon Egg

Okay, maybe dragon eggs can be used for great decoration and possibly hatching dragons in future updates, but they don’t do much. They teleport around and are annoying. They make pretty sweet decoration for map-makers and can probably have some use at some point with some excessive use of command blocks, but in vanilla, they’re space-users.

2. Sponge

This one almost got the #4 spot, but it’s even worse because you can’t make anything with it. Before 0.3, they soaked up water, but now they’re completely useless. I guess you could build with them, but for pixel art, yellow wool is ten times better. I’ve heard rumors that these creative-only blocks can actually be found underwater, but I’ve never seen one.

1. Dead Bushes

They’re good for desert decoration, but nothing else. They’re super ugly, hard to get, and downright useless. This one barely needs to be explained any more. Dead bushes are the #1 least useful item in Minecraft. While some of the others can be used as some kind of decoration, these are ugly and would only be good for the decoration of a desert. Blegh.


Anyway, thanks for reading. Please comment your thoughts on this post!!

Summer :3

    It’s a lie.
