Orange is a major antagonist in the AvM Shorts, serving as the main antagonist of Season 3.
Orange is first introduced when Purple kneels down before him. It's then revealed that Orange is the mastermind behind the events of the episode, planning to put the Stick Gang in a endless loop of parkour while Purple will steal the Minecraft icon from their computer, with Orange replacing the command block on his sceptre with said icon, gaining some unknown, large power. It's also implied he wants Purple to kill the Stick Gang.
However, they are interrupted when one of his piglin brutes revealed that Green, a member of the Stick Gang, has escaped its loop. Orange erases the AI of said piglin brutes, reducing it to a lifeless husk, before ordering all the Piglin Brutes and Purple to catch Green. However, Green catches Purple first and they get into a fight, but Orange, using the command block, holds Green in the air, allowing Purple to escape.
Orange is then seen at the end of the episode, imprisoning Green, showing that the Stick Gang's Pig was also imprisoned here.
Orange appears at the very end, saving two villagers from being eaten by one of the Titan Ravagers by killing it with its command block, then killing the creature's mate with the same method. Angrily walking towards Yellow and Blue, he suddenly becomes surrounded by the villagers thanking him for saving them. Orange quickly pretends to be a nice person in front of the Villagers, before walking up to Yellow and Blue and telling them to go with him. Yellow realises Orange has a command block on his sceptre, but still decides to follow him. Orange creates a Nether portal and all three stick figures go through it.
Orange is a cruel monarch with a lust of power, seeking to obtain the Minecraft icon for some unknown means. He's also a terrible ruler, basically brainwashing or killing a piglin brute into a mindless husk just for learning about Green's escape. However, he does seem to at least like Purple, wanting to share his power with the stick figure and giving him a pat on the head after learning that he succeeded in trapping the Stick Gang. However, when he needs to, Orange is shown to be a manipulative person by quickly pretending to be a hero.
- He's the tallest stick figure in the series. Given that other characters are around the same size or smaller, he's also one of the tallest characters in the entire series.
- He was originally meant to be grey or light purple before Alan chose a different shade of orange. Grey was dropped because he blended with the background and light purple was dropped to avoid any Thanos jokes.
- He was called a he by the real-life Alan, making him one of the two stick figures with a confirmed gender, alongside the Chosen One.
- It's possible that Orange is Herobrine after being resurrected with the game, and wishes to obtain the Minecraft icon once again to revert to his true form and gain back his power. It would also explain Orange's knowledge of the events of Animation vs. Minecraft, including how the Minecraft icon operates and also Herobrine's existence and his actions when possessing Red.
