Kit out your character with the very best outfits and demolish creepers in style, with our guide to the very best Minecraft skins for your Alex or Steve.

Mario and Luigi Minecraft skins

Looking for Minecraft skins to level up your game? These skins are a selection of the very best outfits we can find on the web, including some familiar faces, and a few tasty outfits that would put even the stylish Ender Dragon to shame. Stunt to your pals in multiplayer, or just explore the wilderness like a boss. Either way, don’t go walking around like some regular Joe when great skins like this exist.

If you love block rocking even more than the Chemical Brothers, be sure to check out our library of masterful Minecraft guides. We’ve covered topics like the best Minecraft games, Minecraft diamonds, the best Minecraft Bedrock mods, and the best games like Minecraft on Switch and mobile.

Here’s our guide to the best Minecraft skins out there.

Minecraft skins: Several characters from the Mushroom Kingdom, including Mario, are visible in the Minecraft style

Mario Minecraft skins

The main man himself, Mario makes an appearance in Minecraft if you own the Nintendo Switch version, alongside skins of many of the other Mushroom Kingdom denizens.

When Minecraft originally hit the Wii U the Super Mario pack caused quite a stir, and even came with a whole Mario-themed world to explore. We still can’t quite believe it happened, but it’s a joy to explore.

Minecraft Skins: Banjo Kazooie are visible in the Minecraft style

Banjo Kazooie Minecraft skin

Found over at minecraftskins.com, the Bear & Bird fit right in with Minecraft, especially as they’re owned by Microsoft anyway. It’s a Rare treat to see them exploring the grassy lands of Minecraft, and if you ask me, I think Banjo would be pretty good at foraging anyway.

Minecraft skins: Master Chief is visible in the Minecraft style

Halo Master Chief Minecraft skin

Another natural crossover as Halo belongs to Microsoft, Master Chief can take a break from fighting the covenant, and use that Needler to chop down some trees and mine for diamonds.

It would be great to explore with the Warthog as well (I’m sure there’s a mod somewhere), but we’ll take this for now. Found at minecraftskins.com, but there are also official ones on the Microsoft store.

Best Minecraft Skins: A front and back view of a Link skin from the Legend of Zelda

Legend of Zelda’s Link Minecraft skin

The hero of Hyrule shouldn’t be left out of this list – after all, Breath of the Wild and Minecraft share some similarities. There are plenty of Link-flavoured skins available, but we think this classic skin is the best for when you’re digging dirt and swinging swords. This one is found at minecraftskins.com

Minecrfat Skins: Kratos from God of War is visible in the Minecraft style

Kratos Minecraft skin

The God of War needs a break just as much as anyone else, and we can’t help but feel the world of Minecraft is probably more relaxing than the depths of hell. Plus, Kratos would be a dab hand at wiping out Creepers and the Ender Dragon. Find this skin at minecraftskins.com.

Minecraft skins: Spogebob Squarepants is visible in the Minecraft style

Spongebob Squarepants Minecraft skin

Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? It’s Spongebob of course, but thanks to this latest skin pack, Spongebob can also take up residence in the blocky world of Minecraft.

Naturally, there are a whole host of amazing skins for Spongebob, including an official skin pack you can buy straight from the Minecraft store. We found this one at minecraftskins.com.

Minecraft skins: characters from Pac-man are visible in the Minecraft style

Pac-Man Minecraft skins

A collaboration we didn’t see coming, but it works! To celebrate Pac-Man’s 40th anniversary, Bandai Namco and Microsoft worked together to deliver a host of amazing skins in an official collaboration, as well as some themed Pac-Man worlds that deliver on some of the classic gameplay fans know and love. If you’ve ever wondered what Pac-Man looks like in 3D, this is one way to find out. This is available on the Microsoft store.

Minecraft Skins: Characters from Stranger Things are visible in the Minecraft style

Stranger Things Minecraft skins

One of the newer collaborations in the game lets you explore Minecraft dressed as your favorite character from the hit show Stranger Things.

The Nether is pretty much The Upside Down anyway, right? So we’re sure these actual children are fine to explore a world with exploding green monsters and terrifying night spiders. These skins are available over at the Microsoft store.

Hopefully, you got some great new skins out of this guide, but if we missed your favorite, be sure to get in touch with us over at the Pocket Tactics Twitter account.
