Grotesque Steve, Steveposting or Creepy Steve refers to an eerie 3D model of the character Steve from the video game Minecraft. The image originated on the /v/ board on 4chan as a way to advocate the character's inclusion as a playable character in Super Smash Brothers Ultimate, with Steve often featured injuring playable Smash Bros. characters.
The word "Steveposting" was coined by an anonymous /v/ user on September 22, 2018, in a Smash Bros.-related thread. The word referred to the online debate pertaining to potential inclusion of the character in the game.
On October 1st, 2018, an anonymous 4chan user posted an image featuring a 3D rendering of Minecraft character Steve to /v/ board. The post argued for Steve being added as a playable character in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
In the following months, multiple threads featuring images of 3D Steve were created on 4chan, with a download link for the 3D model later provided by the original creator.
In the following months, several copypasta variations related to the topic of Steve being included in Smash Bros. were created and spammed on 4chan.
Notable Steveposting Copypastas
GOOD MOOOOOOOORNING /v/! Just wanted to remind you that we’re another day closer to Steve (yes, THE Steve from Minecraft) getting confirmed in Smash Ultimate! Make sure to save your tears for the upcoming Fighter Pass when Steve walks into the spotlight!
>H-HAH! VIRGINBEN SAID THE TOPDOWN WASN’T LINK’S AWAKENING! HE WAS FINALLY WRONG! STEVE ISN’T IN SMASH!!!!!
Yikes! That’s a large assumption. How can one “questionable” prediction instantly invalidate a history of success? Unlike your “Grinch leak” Banjocucks, Steve has a lot more distribution among other leakers. Ever heard of Hitagi, 7chan, and 5channel? And while you’re busy obsessing over Vergeben, care to explain how the topdown remake Vergeben predicted was exactly the title he said wouldn’t be featured? Seems a bit suspicious if you ask me, but feel free to continue your denial. Your tears of disappointment will be all the more sweeter!

>b-but Banjo has a good history with Nintendo! He’s gotta be in! “No!”
Sorry Banjo fags, but the Microsoft rep is taken by yours truly! Why would Nintendo choose a dead character over the marketing potential of the highest grossing game of the 21st century? The DLC characters have also been confirmed to be “surprising” according to the developers, so I’m afraid your years of crying for Banjo are going to be subverted once again with the reveal of our favorite underdog! But feel free to continue your denial. Your tears of disappointment will be all the more sweeter!
