As the unofficial mascot of the Internet, cats hold incomparable power over web-crazed humans.
Just a simple video of their everyday lives can rack up thousands, if not millions, of likes and views.
This phenomenon continues everywhere you go online. And people (even scholars) have tried to make sense of it.
So let’s meet the most popular cats in pop culture as they debut in Minecraft!
When my worries didn’t involve the rising cost of living, I’d blissfully watch Tom and Jerry after finishing homework.
I remember rooting for Jerry in every episode, happy that Tom gets what he deserved for picking on the poor mouse.
Looking back on it, though, Tom was never a villain. Just a frustrated cat who tried to outwit someone who was always one step ahead of him.
Jerry may have had the last laugh, but it’s Tom we’d like to see in Minecraft.
You remember Sylvester, right?
The bad ‘ol pussycat from Looney Tunes?
Like Tom, Sylvester also has a tiny archnemesis in the form of a yellow canary named Tweety.
Their relationship is mostly based on violence, primarily influenced by Sylvester’s all-consuming need to eat Tweety.
This tuxedo cat has survived countless explosions and canons, enough proof that he has what it takes to survive the mob-infested lands of Minecraft.
3. Happy (Fairy Tail)
Fairy Tail wouldn’t be a genuine shounen manga if the protagonist didn’t have a beastly companion.
Happy fulfilled this role by being Natsu’s best friend throughout the lengthy series.
He’s a small blue cat with wings who’s not as powerful as his dragon slayer partner. But what he lacks in strength he makes up for in unyielding loyalty to his friends.
Gain the same allegiance for your character by adding Happy into your next Minecraft playthrough – maybe even with some other Fairy Tail skins.
4. Puss In Boots (Shrek)
If there’s one cat you don’t want to mess with, it’s Puss from Shrek.
This “little kitty kitty” managed to bring an adult ogre to his knees with just his tiny claws.
Who knows how much damage he could’ve inflicted when armed with his sword?
You wouldn’t want to miss having this chaotic sidekick as you battle mobs daily.
5. Hello Kitty
In direct contrast with Puss is the lovable Kitty White, also known as Hello Kitty.
Her kawaii appearance has been such a massive hit in Japanese pop culture that it led to the creation of Sanriocore: an aesthetic that heavily features Hello Kitty, other Sanrio characters, and lots of pinks.
If you’re interested in painting your pixelized world in pastel shades and sparkles, then you best have this bobtail cat cutie in it.
It’s been over four decades since the world met Garfield, yet he’s still relevant as he was in 1978.
From a simple comic strip came a billion-dollar franchise that has spawned various merchandise, animated shows, and CGI-animated films.
And at the forefront of this highly successful venture is none other than an orange tabby cat famed for his sheer laziness and relatable disgust for Mondays.
Living with Garfield might be a pain. But trust me, he’s the closest thing on this list to a realistic house cat.
And if you want even more Garfield skins then we have a whole collection of them.
7. Pink Panther
The Pink Panther Show aired long before my parents were born.
So you bet I don’t know anything about this iconic character.
Or even the fact that The Pink Panther film in 2006 had Beyoncé and Jason Statham as part of the cast.
There’s more to explore with this cunning cat – especially when he joins your adventures in Minecraft!
8. Felix the Cat
In the era where sound was non-existent in films, the characters needed to be as entertaining as possible.
And with his Magic Bag of Tricks, Felix the Cat delivered that and more, making him one of the greatest cartoon characters of all time.
Seek out childlike wonder once more with Felix’s Minecraft-rendered skin.
If you ask me, the most famous cat in fiction goes to none other than Gotham’s most infamous jewel thief: Catwoman.
The Cat, who’s one of Batman’s main adversaries and love interests, has fascinated fans with her deadly allure.
And like a true feline fatale, she had come close to killing The Bat, as well as saving him from close calls.
Get your fix of Batman-themed crossovers when you recruit Selina Kyle to join you in Minecraft.
10. Black Cat
On the prowl for more powerful women?
Then let me introduce you to Felicia Hardy, also known as Black Cat!
She shares many similarities with Catwoman, such as being a thief and having a will-they-won’t-they relationship with a popular hero.
They could be sisters if they aren’t from two completely different universes.
Good thing we can have both antiheroines living in Minecraft.
11. Black Panther
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve watched the trailer for Black Panther back in 2018.
From the soundtrack to the vibranium-powered fight scenes, every frame was oozing unprecedented levels of epicness.
Black Panther didn’t need to be a god or a playboy billionaire to become one of the coolest heroes in the MCU.
He did all of that by embracing his destiny as King of Wakanda, and now, of Minecraft.
Having a time-traveling robot cat with an endless pouch of gadgets as a guardian doesn’t sound absurd when trouble lurks in the most unexpected places.
What do you say?
Are you game to test this Doraemon skin on a free trial?
Then give it a go as you face off against pesky mobs and other players.
13. Nyan Cat
Who would’ve thought that a Pop-Tart-Cat hybrid that leaks rainbows would reach omnipresence on the Internet?
Nyan Cat is so loved to this day that the original GIF was sold for $587,000.
That’s a lot of money poured into a cat flying through space while “Nyanyanyanyanyanyanya!” is being blasted in the background.
Meanwhile, this Nyan Cat skin from kvSketch is absolutely free for download!
14. Meowth (Pokémon)
Along with Jesse and James, Meowth makes up one-third of Team Rocket.
Although not impressive in strength, he’s one of the rare Pokémon capable of speaking more than its name.
Too bad he chose to stay on the losing side as Team Rocket gets blasted off again and again.
Team up with Meowth in Minecraft when you grab this skin from creator Tletom.
15. Artemis (Sailor Moon)
Artemis is known for being Sailor Venus’ feline guardian.
But did you know he’s also a galactic hottie in his human form?
Unfortunately, he gets more screen time as a cat, which isn’t so bad when he’s this cute.
Get a loyal protector by your side by taking home this custom skin. And we even have a full collection of Sailor Moon MC skins, so take a peek there if you want some matching ideas.
If Sailor Venus has Artemis, then Sailor Moon has Luna – an intelligent black-purple cat who long served the Moon Kingdom.
This trusty feline has guided the Sailor Guardians to reawaken and accept their fate as protectors of the solar system, all while being in her cat form.
With all that she did for the universe, Luna deserved her happy ending with Artemis and their daughter, Diana.
Try playing with this skin by ShanPlayz11 and I’m sure you won’t want to put it down.
17. Rainbow Cat
Why settle for a normal cat when you can get one with rainbow-colored fur?
Have your daily boost of serotonin with pinkfuzzykitten’s iridescent creation!
Colorful, docile, and one-of-a-kind, this Rainbow Cat would make the perfect pet for fantastical realms.
I never imagined I’d see a buff cat in my lifetime, but that’s exactly what Meowscles look like in Fortnite.
He has the head of an adorable kitty with two-toned fur and dark beady eyes.
Below that, though, is a very muscular body fit to match a DC or Marvel superhero actor.
It’s a comical combination that can liven up your gameplay.
19. Christmas Kitty
If there’s one thing I vehemently believe in, it’s that it’s never too early to prepare for Christmas.
As the most wonderful time of the year, it’s only right to make sure our holidays are perfect – from the decorations to the embarrassing sweaters the whole family has to wear.
Start your holiday right with this Christmas Kitty skin. It features a cream-colored sweatshirt, denim shorts, mismatched shoes, and cat ears.
20. Hotdog Cat
Hotdog Cat is probably not the weirdest thing you’ve seen online.
But that’s what this skin is for me.
It’s such a random idea to have a cat wear a hotdog onesie, but that’s the Internet for you.
Provide Hotdog Cat a home in your Minecraft world – it might quickly become your new favorite skin of choice.
