Here's something you don't see every day - youtuber IJAMinecraft has created a mod using the command block available in the vanilla game. The mod, titled “Herobrine Boss” creates a boss fight with the infamous Herobrine, and it is truly impressive. Let's check it out…
The whole thing is described and demonstrated in a very well-made video by the creator himself, so if you have the time, check it out:
For those of you unable to watch the video, or unclear on how exactly it works even after it, here's the low-down.
How does it work?
To use the mod, you need to place a command block in whichever world you are using (this requires creative mod/cheats), then you need to paste the code in and run it by connecting a redstone current to the command block. The block will create a big new pile of command blocks, neatly arranged in a computer-like tower. Because of this, you'll need to move away from that tower later, so that something doesn't destroy it during the boss fight. This tower is necessary because each command block can only do one thing at a time, and the boss fight requires many at once, so more than one command block is needed.
How do I start it?
Once the machine has assembled (you'll get a message telling you it has), you'll have to right click the middle sign on the machine to get your item. There's also a sign below that destroys the whole thing for when you're done with the mod. Once you get the item (it's an enchanted armor stand), it's time to get away from the computer like I said earlier. You need to build an altar to Herobrine which consists of a 3×3 rectangle with gold block sides, obsidian corners, and then finally the armor stand in the middle. This will summon Herobrine, and the boss fight may begin.
What is it like?
Don't read this part unless you want to know how the boss fight plays out, which could be considered a spoiler.
Once you summon Herobrine, the terrain around you will erode and collapse, as particles make shapes until he finally appears. Then, he will summon small zombie minions and rain fireballs on you until you hit the crystal under him 3 times, at which point he will start attacking you himself, dealing tons of damage. He will still use some special attacks and summon minions in addition to his melee attack, so the fight will be long and challenging. After he is defeated he will drop Despair - a special pair of boots that scorch the ground around them and deal damage. Once you pick them up, they are yours to control, and once you equip them you will scorch the ground around you, though in a much smaller radius than when the boots are dropped as an item.
That's it. It's not a very complex mod, but it's done via the command block which makes it very impressive and highly compatible. You don't need any mods - you just need to copy paste some text. You can get the code here:

Remember, just place a command block in your world, paste the code in, and then run the command block. It's that easy!
