"That is a lot of lava. And fire. And other things that could burn you to death."
Olivia talking about the dangers of the Nether. src

The Nether is a hellish and dangerous dimension in the world of Minecraft. It can be traveled to by activating and walking through a Nether Portal.



The Nether is a hellish dimension that consists of oceans and waterfalls of lava, and most terrain consisting of netherrack and soul sand. It has no natural light, and all the light comes from lava, fire, and glowstone. It also contains Nether Fortresses made out of nether bricks. In addition, the nether is the only source of natural quartz and glowstone.


The Old Order of the Stone built a Nether Minecart System. Its purpose was to con​nect different members of the Order. These were very useful in cases of emergency and made traveling very reliable.





  • Each block traveled in the Nether is the equivalent to eight blocks in the Overworld, thus making a trip across the Nether a quick and efficient way to reach far places in the Overworld.
  • In Minecraft, there is a very small chance for an Enderman to spawn in the Nether.
  • The Nether is based on Hell.
  • In "A Block and a Hard Place", Jesse has the option to call this one of the "weirdest places in the world", even though the Nether is its own world.
  • Because the Nether Update for normal Minecraft was released 5 years after the release of "The Order of the Stone", none of its content make any presence in both seasons.
