He is famous for plucking up humans from another dimension, due to his interest in them.

His real name is Markus Persson. His enemy 'equivalent' is Herobrine.

Powers and Abilities

Notch has most of the general powers of any being on a higher plane of existence; he can summon some form of creature to come to his aid, or encase himself in an energy shield, as well as superhuman strength, speed, and stamina.
