The 10 Best Minecraft Skins of 2016

1 of 12

With the end of another year just on the horizon, it is time to look back at another massive collection of Minecraft skins that were created by the game's awesome audience in 2016. With so many skins to choose from, we have looked through the game's huge library and picked out the very best from the year. 

So without further ado, here are the 10 best Minecraft skins of 2016.


If you are a fan of the Deadpool movie that came out this year, then this skin is an absolute must for you. You will be able to run around a Minecraft world ranting and raving and chopping things to pieces. You know, something like what Deadpool would actually do! minecraft skins


This one is definitely for the Pokémon fans out there. Become one with the coolest Pokémon in town as you run around a Minecraft world setting everything ablaze, be it intentional or not. Just don't stick around in a jungle, the last thing you want is the place to catch on fire with you in it!




The perfect skin for any fan of the Let's Play YouTuber Jacksepticeye. As far as making a skin that looks like him goes, you can't get much better than this. It even has his logo on the back. It really is a skin by a fan, for the fans. 



Is Charmander not quite the dragon skin you are looking for? Then this one will definitely have you covered. Not only does it genuinely look great, it also has a wonderful mixture of varying, prismatic colors that make it stand out. I'd use this one with pride -- and you should, too.

Fire Boy

This one is a bit different to most skins I have found and quite frankly, it looks awesome. With its dark outfit, well-placed flame design on the arms and the flame face on the back, this is the perfect skin for the virtual pyromaniac.



For those looking to wander the worlds of Minecraft as a zombie, but still have the ability to do everything that a living person can, this is your skin. I love the almost Mad Max design of the outfit and the touch of the sword on the back. Definitely the most kickass zombie in all of Minecraft.


Iron Man

Definitely one for the Marvel fans, this skin is a really great pixeled version of the modern Iron Man design. Itteven has the power unit in the chest. Put this skin on, head into creative mode and fly around the place just like you are the real Tony Stark.

Seth Rollins

For the WWE fans of the Minecraft community. As far as WWE skins go (and there are quite a few of them), this one of Seth Rollins is the best and most accurate representation of a WWE wrestler you will find. The developers of this skin really have done a great job at bringing this WWE Superstar to Minecraft.


Steve Black Suit

Some players like to keep their skin of Steve. He is one of the main characters of the Mineuniversevserse after all. So, if you are looking to give Steve a bit of a change of clothes, one that is stylish, of course, then look no further than this. Honestly, he looks like he could be right out of Pulp Fiction, making it even more badass. 

Azriel Dreemurr

I have definitely saved the best skin for last. This skin is of Azriel Dreemurr from UndertaleThe amount of detail in this skin is phenomenal and it looks absolutely brilliant. For those who are fans of Toby Fox's award-winning role-playing game, this is one to definitely check out.

And there you have it, the best Minecraft skins of 2016. From marvel heroes (or anti-heroes) to famous Let's Play YouTubers and a WWE Superstar, this year has produced some truly amazing Minecraft skins. With such a collection of different skins, there is bound to be something for everyone.
