[Top 10] Minecraft Horror Seeds That Are Fun! (2022 Edition)

It might be nearing the winter holidays, but we here at Gamers Decide like to celebrate Halloween for a good, long time. Minecraft is known for being a peaceful escape of a game, but if you’re looking for play with a little bit of bite, here are ten of the coolest, spookiest Minecraft seeds that are sure to give you and your friends a scare!

10. FrodoDieNudel - Acrophobia Seed

Don’t underestimate this seed by its silly-sounding name - after all, it does have the word “die” in it, so it’s got to be scary! Lacking in Minecraft’s typical gentle slopes that are more commonly generated by less frightening seeds, FrodoDieNudel replaces hills with sheer, long-drop cliffs. You’d better watch where you step, or you’re in for a long fall! Not only are these land formations eerie and unnatural, but if you’ve got a fear of heights, these drops are downright terrifying.

9. 1004965171 - Donner Party Seed

If you’re unfamiliar with the infamous Donner Party incident, I won’t take up too much of your time with the backstory. Essentially, a group went traveling through the mountains and then got stuck there, mid-expedition, long enough without help to where the members of the party had to turn to some… taboo last-ditch efforts to keep themselves fed. This seed hints at a history potentially as dark as that, featuring a skeleton spawner nestled up near the top of a snow-capped mountain. The cold, unforgiving atmosphere adds to the chill down your spine as you wonder what must have happened here to curse this location so.

8. Relentlous - Skeleton Spawner Seed

Not only is this seed uncanny in spawning you underground, but it spawns you directly into a skeleton dungeon, pitch black and unlit as you have to desperately claw your way out to survive. This seed is scary in a thrilling way, providing a unique challenge in a terrifying setting, with nothing but your fists and your wits to guide and free you. 

7. 12345 - Matrix Glitch Seed

Perhaps the unsettlingly unnatural landmasses generated in this seed have something to do with the procedural nature of the seed’s numbers themselves, but whatever causes it, this seed is just plain creepy! The whole world is covered in sand, with bits and pieces of biomes generating in the unlikeliest of places, giving this seed the aesthetic appearance of your classic Minecraft world but with none of the comforting, familiar normalcy.

6. 2589905029645458118 - Zombie Island Seed

This seed spawns you on an island - right next to a zombie village, absolutely infested with undead. Once again, if you’re up for a bit of a combat challenge, this seed might be for you, and if you triumph over the zombies, there could be endless treasures and mysteries for you to explore and discover - but only if you have the grit to get you there!

5. -44755215714072407248067 - Hollowed Out Seed

This seed is incredibly strange. It spawns you in a massive, messy, hollowed out cavern in the ground, decorated with floating islands of sand and random pieces of stone littered about in the air. It looks like someone has been here before, someone a little too liberal with their TNT. Whatever it was that caused this, I don’t want to meet them.

4. 8500590693753291651 - Mountain Mansion Seed

There’s something ominous and unnatural about a Woodland Mansion spawning in the middle of a snowy mountain range, alone and isolated for miles around. Taking into account the fact that these mansions are filled with hostile mobs, mysterious chests, secret rooms, and enormous idols built of wool, this seed gives me an enormous “Haunted Mansion” vibe. Step inside… if you dare.

3. 289849025 - Copycat Seed

This seed is another that is unsettling in its uncanny valley nature, causing structures and land formations to generate repetitively, over and over, next to one another. It’s like some cosmic force hit copy and paste a hundred times, not bothering to make the landscape resemble anything even vaguely real or natural.

2. 8715709545839086772 - Sextuplet Spawners Seed

Mob dungeons aren’t the most difficult challenge to face in Minecraft, but this seed spawns you in near not one, not two, not even three, but SIX different mob spawners all in close proximity to one another, rubbing elbows and bumping shoulders. If you’re ready to take on a real challenge, this seed is for you.

1. 478868574082066804 - The Herobrine Seed

It wouldn’t be a horror seed list without paying homage to the most infamous seed of all - the seed where Herobrine was first rumored to be sighted. As a kid, my friends and I lived in fear of the Herobrine. We tried to take the constant reassurances of its removal to heart, but nothing could ever fully assuage that anxiety in the back of our minds. If you’d like to relive that feeling of imminent dread or perhaps even sight the Herobrine yourself, here’s the seed that started it all.

These ten seeds have me shivering in my boots - I can’t imagine the discomfort I’d feel, playing these alone in an empty room at night… which is why I intend to do that, with all of them, immediately. Sometimes, scary can be fun! Which seed is your favorite? Have you ever encountered any wild generation glitches in your personal worlds? We’d love to hear about it! Until next time, we’ll see you around! Happy gaming!
