    I know I am late on this, but I want to ask you.
    Since most of the blocks in Minecraft float, wouldn't it make the wood in the trees weaker since the gravity wouldn't condense the wood? In what is essentially a zero-gravity scenario concerning the blocks, the tree would need less strength and structure in order to grow, so it would be easier to punch it to pieces.

      Sorry if this comment is outright wrong, I just think it could explain the "Super" fists.

    MatPat Austin already proved Steve is the strongest video game character ever created. What’d he say? Quadrillion+ pounds or something like that without even being slowed down. Yeah, I think Steve can punch a tree

    5:55 You weren't going to break through that board, not because of strength but because to technique. The grain of the wood was being held vertically, if you had the grain of the wood horizontal then it would have been easier to break through
