Aiden is a character in Minecraft: Story Mode (MCSM), by Telltale Games. He appears as a minor antagonist in "The Order of the Stone" and the main antagonist in "Order Up!". He was one of the four members of The Ocelots, a team of builders rival to Jesse's gang. He later forms his own group, The Blaze Rods. He is voiced by Matthew Mercer.
Why He Should "Just Die Already"
- Compared to all of the rest of the villains in MCSM and made by Telltale, he's not intimidating at all, just pathetic. Making him a boring villain altogether. His villain qualities are also overexaggerated when he does become a villain, making him a poor character entirely.
- Much like Lord Betrayus, he's an extremely arrogant narcissist and will do anything to get what he wants and is willing to go as far as to hurt or even kill others.
- He lets his envy overtake him to the point of where he pushed Jesse, The Founder, and (depending on Jesse's choice) even his former friend Lukas off the edge of Sky City in order to kill them.
- He has incredibly poor sportsmanship. Most notably when Jesse's team wins the competition, he behaves like a spoiled child having a tantrum and will set Reuben and the build on fire to simply spite Jesse. Not only that, but he faces no repercussions for his actions and will still win the building competition if Jesse doesn't let Axel and Olivia guard their build.
- He is belligerent and insolent to Jesse's gang and takes his rivalry with them too seriously to the point of where he takes any moment to mock and insult them. Alongside becoming needlessly violent in Episode 5 over Jesse's gang saving the world and becoming the new Order of the Stone.
- He behaves like a bellicose, petulant teenager and whines whenever things don't go his way or when something good happens to someone he doesn't like.
- He has an illogical combat skill, such as being portrayed as his sword fighting being equivalent to Jesse's, despite Jesse being more experienced and obviously stronger. Alongside unsound and mediocre writing decisions almost always making Aiden win against Jesse and somehow make him powerful enough to overtake Sky City when he and his gang are outnumbered by the civilian population.
- He is incredibly sociopathic, as he shows absolutely no remorse for his actions towards Jesse and their gang, Sky City, and even Lukas.
- Speaking of Lukas, Aiden treats Lukas like absolute trash in Episode 5, such as kicking him from the Ocelots and pushing him over the edge of Sky City with little to no remorse. All of it being a pathetic portrayal of jealousy due to Lukas integrating into Jesse's gang and the New Order of the Stone.
- Hypocrisy: He begs Jesse not to push him off sky city, even though he did the same thing with the Founder, Jesse, and Lukas.
- If Jesse chooses to leave him there or push him over, he holds his grudge and acts like he didn't deserve it and acts like he didn't just do the same thing seconds ago.
- His design can be viewed as mediocre or even ugly, as it looks like a lethargic reskin of Gill or even Lukas.
- Depending on Jesse's choices, Aiden shows a will to change for the better and become a writer. And at the end of Season 2, if Jesse stays in Beacon Town they will receive a letter from him that displays his progress into a better person.
- Matthew Mercer does a great job voicing Aiden.
- Aiden is an excellent display of how envy and jealousy can contort a person into becoming a pernicious and indiscreet force of destruction.
- He is voiced by Matthew Christopher Miller, better known as Matthew Mercer, is an American voice actor. He is best known for his work with Studiopolis, Viz Media, Bang Zoom! Entertainment, Funimation, and NYAV Post in anime, cartoons, and video games.
- He doesn't show up for the rest of the series, but he does send a letter to BeaconTown, asking for a way to redeem himself.
