There are a lot of really cool Minecraft skins out there but some have been popular from the start. I have found these skins at the top of the charts on 7 or 8 different websites dedicated to Minecraft skins. I have seen most of them across the Minecraft universe. This list is in no specific order because I took the skins all from different sites. I have included the skins underneath the images if you want to use one. If your unsure how to use the skin image I have a guide here.
Top 13 Skins
Creeper – This skin can be pretty scary if you see it approaching you with no gear. This is a lot of fun to use if you have some TNT on you.
DeadMau5 – DeadMau5 uses this skin when he plays Minecraft. This skin gains giant mouse ears when DeadMau5 equips it with his username.
Dinogirl – There are a lot of awesome DinoGirl/Cool Hair Girl skins out there but I have seen this one much more then other.
Finn – Finn the Human is from a popular tv show called Adventure Time.
Herobrine – Herobrine is a character found in a Creepypasta you can read here. I highly recommend giving it a read, it is only 4 or 5 paragraphs long.
IronMan – IronMan is a member of the Avengers which are super heroes from the Marvel Universe.
Link – Link is the hero from the popular Zelda franchise.
Mario – Everyone knows Mario which is why you see him everywhere.
Master Chief – Master Chief is from the popular video game franchise Halo.
Notch – Notch is the creator of Minecraft and this is the original skin he used to rock. His updated skins are also very cool.
Stormtrooper – Stormtroopers are the brainless bad guys in Star Wars that die from a single blaster shot.
Trollface Guy – The vast majority of those using this skin are trying to get TNT and blow up your base. If you see him sneaking around your base get your sword ready.
Yoshi – I doubt Yoshi is popular enough to be on this list but I personally love this little guy.
If you have any more great skin recommendations please post them in the comments, I am always looking for cool skins. Once you pick one of these Minecraft skins you might want to check out how to start a server, awesome servers, best seeds, or one of many other guides found here.
