Each year Minecraft community creates hundreds and thousands of new skins that reflect the most likable characters from other games, TV shows, and movies. Sometimes creators simply make original skins that grab everybody's attention.
Our list of Minecraft skins gathers only the most popular character skins released so far this year. Let's get on with the list of top Minecraft skins for 2022.
Moon Knight Skin
Marvel's Moon Knight has been a huge success as a TV show, and it didn't take long for Minecraft community to make this iconic new skin.
It will definitely fit the desert biome aesthetics, taking into account the connection of the Moon Knight character with the Egyptian mythology.
Kaedehara Kazuha Skin
One of the greatest sword characters in Genshin Impact is Kaedehara Kazuha, a wandering samurai.
Unfortunately this skin doesn't include her katana, but a diamond sword will do just fine.
This is a completely original skin of the Withering creature from the Warped Wastelend in Minecraft's nether realm.
This skin is unique and so complex, and it looks especially good in the Warped Forest biome, which was the main inspiration for this skin's color scheme.
The Batman Skin
After the release of the new The Batman movie this year, there simply had to be a new revamped Batman skin for Minecraft.
It carries the aesthetic of the Robert Pattinson's batsuit, which has very realistic look. It also includes a black cape, which can be seen attached to the character's back.
Mirabel Madrigal Skin
Mirabel is by far the most likable character in Encanto, which has also served as one of the biggest inspirations for a whole series of new maps in Minecraft.
Here she is wearing her distinct white blouse and colorful skirt, as well as her bright green glasses resting on top of her hair.
Dr. Strange Skin
Here is another popular Marvel character!
Dr. Strange appeared in both the latest Spider-Man and Dr. Strange movies to a huge success.
Now this character has been adopted in a Minecraft skin with the new costume and look, which is also a little bit reminiscent of his evil Multiverse variant.
This summer had another significant Marvel event, which was a new Thor: Love and Thunder movie, where Thor had a brand-new costume.
The new Minecraft skin showcases the new look from the film, and making many Minecraft and Marvel fans very, very happy.
Cad Bane Skin
Cad Bane is the infamous mentor of Boba Fett character from the Book of Boba Fett series, which is a part of the Star Wars franchise.
This bounty hunter attracted a lot of attention during the run of the limited TV series, and this skin tries to capture the menacing blue alien look of Cad Bane in plenty of details.
Gregory is the main protagonist of the latest Five Night's at Freddy's: Security Breach game.
What makes him really special is that he is the first fully animated 3D character in the FNaF franchise, so of course fans want to bring him over to Minecraft.
Here is probably the finest example of the skin for Vecna, the main antagonist of Stranger Things 4.
It's creepy enough to scare all your friends on the private server, but cool enough to play with other notorious characters that may pop up on public Minecraft servers.
Mr. Fantastic Skin
One of the biggest announcements of 2022 was the introduction of the Fantastic Four team of superheroes in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
This skin was made in honor of Reed Richards, also known as Mr. Fantastic, the leader of the Fantastic Four team. Here he sports his new costume from the coming movie.
Luke Skywalker Skin
There have been many versions of Luke Skywalker skin in the past few years after the re-introduction of the iconic character in the Star Wars sequels.
However, this new version from 2022 is by far the most realistic and close to the original Luke Skywalker look from 1977.
Demon Slayer has been voted as the best and most viewed anime of the year, which is no surprise taking into account the fantastic roster of characters.
This skin of the fiery Rengoku is surprisingly detailed, a suitable conversion from the well-animated anime.
Glamrock Chica Skin
Here is another character skin from Five Night's at Freddy's: Security Breach game, but this time it's Glamrock Chica.
According to the creator of the skin, capturing the right look of Chica was one of the most difficult tasks in their gaming career.
Secret Wars' Spider-Man Skin
The last skin on our list looks a bit into the future, when the new Disney+ show Secret Wars arrives on our screens.
