The Obsidian Cube is a 5x5x5 block cube (125 cubic meters) made by Runt. It was created during Project Squidboat, a collaboration between Runt and Emerald, set up by Drill.

Popularity of the Cube

The humans and villagers enjoyed watching the mobs attacking the cube. According to Runt, practically the whole town was above on the wall, watching. When it started raining, the mobs stopped attacking it and The Mayor told everyone to go home. Some observers expressed their disappointment at this, with Stump remarking "Rained away," implying the mobs attacking the cube was entertainment.

Ways the Mobs Attacked It

  1. They tried to blow the cube up with creepers. A zombie counted to three to make sure all the creepers exploded at the exact same time. Despite that, the cube did not lose a single block.
  2. In addition to regular creepers, they used charged creepers, (a creeper who gets struck by lightning and becomes more powerful than a normal creeper.)
  3. The mobs used enchanted iron pickaxes to try to mine the obsidian cube, but it didn’t work since diamond pickaxes are the only common tool that can mine it.
  4. The mobs tried digging under the cube to see if there is an obsidian floor. They discovered there was indeed an obsidian floor.

Aftermath of Cube

The mobs presumably got annoyed looking at the cube and buried it under dirt. Runt says he is planning on uncovering it just to mess with the mobs. However, Runt never again mentioned it. Whether the cube is still exists is unknown (due to the amount of the recent attacks on Villagetown and void fire, it may have been destroyed).
