PVP - AVM Shorts Episode 7
Villagers - AVM Shorts Episode 9
The Nether is the 8th installment for the AVM Shorts series. It is released on YouTube on June 18th, 2018.
The episode starts with Blue eating a cake. Green approaches and asks for some. Blue gives the last piece of cake and crafts another one when a Zombie Pigman falls. Green kills the pigman and tries to find out where it came from. He sees some purple particles coming from the Storage folder. Inside the folder, they find a nether portal and decide to go through it.. Blue and Green then arrive in the Nether. They also see many mobs they had never seen. Green finds some kind of shiny, white crystal, and starts to mine its ores with Blue when Green accidentally hits a zombie pigman with his pickaxe. All the zombie pigmen in the place become hostile and chase them. The poor sticks try to hide in a fortress but Wither Skeletons and Blazes appear to kill them. They run all over the place until they arrive at a cliff. The sticks got no choice but to jump onto a Ghast. Approaching the Ghast, Green falls into lava but is saved by Blue. They got the idea to ride the Ghast, making it fire at all the hostile mobs. Blue later, kills the Ghast to avoid more problems. They get back their swords and tools, to get back home. Before getting to the portal, Blue sees another one, and a mysterious Purple stick comes from it. He seems not to be interested in the place and goes back through his portal. Green and Blue got curious about the entity, and decide to follow him.
- This is the first episode to not feature all the characters.
- Also, this is the first one to introduce a new stick figure.
- This is not the first episode to feature Nether mobs, as a Blaze appeared briefly in Command Blocks.
- This is the first episode to abuse Minecraft physics (by latching onto, swinging from, reeling while the hook was fixed on, and riding without passing through a ghast)
