“Let there be LIGHT!”
—Notch, Destroy the Godmodder 2
Notch, real name Markus Persson, is the creator of Minecraft as an Earth video game. He is the universe's demigod, and was shown the universe of Minecraft by the Black Monolith. Notch described turning the universe into the game as "life-consuming. Almost literally." Upon its completion, he obtained godlike powers within the universe.
Before the Destroy the Godmodder series, Notch became personal friends with the Godmodder after the Godmodder expressed interest in Minecraft and suggested ideas for it. However, when the Godmodder became evil, Notch attempted to duel him. The two had unfinished business that lasted until Destroy the Godmodder 2, when Notch made several attempts to end the Godmodder's hold on Minecraft once and for all, culminating in Minecraft 2.0.
Notch has also made an appearance in Destroy the Godmodder 0rigins, which further shows his dislike of the Godmodder.
