"We know what you're doing down here. Soul sand and three wither skulls? You're building a Wither!"
Jesse to Ivor about the Wither Storm. (Determinant) src

The Wither Storm or the Witherstorm, is a giant and advanced Wither who served as the main antagonist of the first four episodes of Season 1 of Minecraft: Story Mode.

Created by Ivor, through the use of the command block, which was then later destroyed in the conclusion of episode four, it was programmed to follow Gabriel the Warrior's amulet. However, it went out of control and became unstoppable, destroying everything in the way of the amulet.

It was destroyed by Jesse and their gang in "A Block and a Hard Place".

Overview

Appearance

When created, the Wither Storm resembled a regular Wither with a Command Block attached to its chest, but as it started to suck blocks towards it, it eventually became a giant black, creature with long, powerful tentacles, three heads, glowing purple eyes, and large teeth. The storm was also made of mostly obsidian, with nether brick interior, and quartz teeth.

While the storm still holds the same attacks as a normal wither, it also contains a few ender-like qualities as well. The tractor beam being able to lift things can be compared somewhat to an enderman in the fact that both are able to manipulate location, similar to how enderman use teleportation, and the Wither Storm using an anti-gravity beam that, coincidentally, is also purple, the co-symbolized color of the end.

At the end of "The Last Place You Look", the Wither Storm separated into three pieces, two that bear resemblance to the original Wither Storm and one with a giant head.

Abilities

The Wither Storm was a very powerful creature. It gained far superior capabilities with the help of the Command Block. Its powers were:

  • Firing Wither Skulls which explode violently on contact, leaving behind an accumulation of flames.
  • Using a tractor beam, sucking in any mobs or blocks in it and inflicting them with Wither or Wither Sickness.
  • Using its many tentacles to break through obstacles (including Obsidian) and to attack from a distance.
  • Regeneration as long as Command Block intact.
  • Split and generating progenies of itself if blown into pieces which linked to original (if original Wither Storm who had Command Block died, its progenies died too).
  • Forming additional heads as well as tentacles inside its body to attack those who threatened its heart (Command Block).
  • Being able to track the order's amulet, unless it is in the Nether or the End.

Killed Victims

The list below shows the victims the Wither Storm has killed:

Killed By

Since the Wither Storm was powered by the Command Block, Jesse used an enchanted weapon (with Command Block powers) to destroy the Command block. This killed the Wither Storm and ensured that it would never return.

Trivia

  • The Wither Storm is the first major antagonist in the series and the first antagonist to be created by a person.
    • The second is PAMA.
    • It is also the first non-human major antagonist, with the second also being PAMA.
  • The Wither Storm cannot be built in normal Minecraft, although all of its building materials exist.
  • The terms "Witherstorm" and "Wither Storm" are interchangeable, and in fact both terms were used to refer to it in Minecraft: Story Mode. The first wording was used in Episodes 1 and 2, and the second was used in Episodes 3, 4, and 5.
  • When the Wither Storm's middle head was mutated, its eye color changed to cyan instead of purple.
  • In "Hero in Residence", several posters of The Wither Storm are seen throughout Beacontown.
  • The Wither storm is the first antagonist to have an antagonistic role for more than one Episode, the other being Romeo.
