Best Minecraft Skins

Minecraft is a creative game for so many reasons, and one of those reasons is that you can make your character look like just about anyone you want to. While some players prefer to create their own Minecraft skins, other players turn to online databases where they can download skins and play as whoever they like. There are both original skins and skins from various IPs available for players.

Whether you want to play as a superhero, an adventurer, a queen, or a villain, you can be whoever you want to in the world of Minecraft. Let’s take a look at 15 of the best custom Minecraft skins out there, download links included.

Chihiro (Spirited Away)

Hop into the magical world of Ghibli with this Spirited Away Chihiro skin. Maybe the world of Minecraft isn’t quite the same, but there are still witches and dragons, though none of them will take away your name — yet.

Coraline Jones (Coraline)

For lovers of stop motion animation, the paranormal, and/or really snazzy yellow coats, Coraline Jones from the Laika film Coraline is the perfect skin. Use as is, or maybe even edit some button eyes on there, if you’re feeling extra creepy.

Deadpool (Deadpool)

Assets via

Want to be a superhero, but maybe Batman and Superman isn’t your bag? Step into the shoes of everyone’s favorite sassy, sarcastic, pansexual disaster: Deadpool. This skin is extremely well made, and the colors really pop.

Dora (Dora the Explorer)

Assets via

Explore the world of Minecraft as the number one explorer herself. Dora the Explorer is a great choice for kids, but also a funny or fun choice for adults. Though no, your Minecraft map won’t sing to you.

Elsa (Frozen)

Assets via

Lost some diamonds to a lava mishap? Learn to let it go, when you channel your inner ice queen. This skin is great for Disney fans old and young. You can also use Elsa’s Show Yourself variant instead.

Galactic Hoodie (Original character)

This original skin has a galaxy-print sweatshirt with a gradient skull on the front of it. The skin is listed as male, but it has a rather androgynous look to it.

Hanzo (Overwatch)

Assets via

For fans of Blizzard as a whole, or Overwatch specifically, this amazingly detailed Hanzo skin is the perfect skin to play as. You can also use Hanzo’s Cyberninja Legendary variant.

K.O. (OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes)

Assets via

For cartoon fans everywhere, play as K.O., the main character from the animated series OK K.O.! Let’s Be Heroes. This skin is one of the best in the batch because the creator managed to give the skin a 2D cartoon-like look in 3D, which is difficult to do.

Link (The Legend of Zelda)

Assets via

It’s dangerous to go alone: Take this! Play as everyone’s favorite adventuring elf as you adventure through the blocky world of Minecraft. You can also play with Link’s Breath of the Wild variant.

Lucio (Overwatch)

Assets via

Overwatch had to make it on this list one more time, because this Lucio skin is extremely well-made, and it almost looks like he walked right out of the game. How this was achieved through Minecraft pixels, the world may never know, but get ready to drop the beat.

Mando (The Mandalorian)

Assets via

You can even play as the title character from the Disney+ original Star Wars series: The Mandalorian, whose actual name is Din Djarin. New skins are always being made, so no matter when a show came out, if you look, you may find it. Hopefully, there’s a Baby Yoda to accompany him too.

Plumaria (Pokémon)

Assets via

For Pokémon fans far and wide, play as the wickedly fashionable villain from Team Skull: Plumaria. She is from Pokémon Sun and Moon and is the right-hand woman to Guzma.

Pride Girl (Original character)

Show off your pride with this LGBTQ+ themed original skin featuring bright red shorts and rainbow shades, shoes and a midriff top.

Ralph (Wreck-It Ralph)

Assets via

This clever Wreck-It Ralph skin lets you become everyone’s favorite fictional video game villain. The mouth is open, just like in the movie, by putting the upper jaw on the head and the lower jaw on the chest.

Spring in the Air (Original character)

Spring Is In The Air

This original skin is perfect for players who want to get in tune with their love for flowers and nature. This skin shows off a sky-blue shirt and a gorgeous yellow flower crown.
