Etho (born August 20, 1986 (1986-08-20) [age 31]   known by his youtube name EthosLab, is a Canadian Let's Play commentator with his main focus on Minecraft.


Etho's first video was posted on November 12, 2010 [1] and was about his idea for a boat dipesnser. This was the first showcase of his redstone abilities within the game.


After that he started his popular Minecraft survival single-player series titled "Etho Plays Minecraft." [2] It is still ongoing in a second world that he moved to after the 1.8 Beta update. He changed due to the Adventure Update which introduced several new biomes to the game and wished to experience them without having to travel thousands of blocks.

In the second season, he had built his base underground called the Mancave. It holds many features such as a UFO above the cow farm where cows can be fished into, a slime farm with the option to move the donor tree farm, a Tamagotchi like creation named Wilson, a large automatic brewing lab, an underground village, and several more.


Etho  has participated in Mindcrack UHC since Season 3, except Seasons 7, 12, 14 through 20, and 21. Etho  was the winner of Season 8, having killed six other players.

MindCrack: Vanilla

Etho is no longer playing on the Mindcrack Server, and has, in turn, joined the Hermitcraft server. He is no longer inactive on the Hermitcraft server. Etho joined Mindcrack in 2011 and left in early 2015. He left because he didn't want to be part of the Minecrack Brand, which was becoming more money orientated - Etho mentioned in a video that he prefers doing minecraft for the fun.

Ethos spent sometime on playing “DVZ” with BruceWillakers and PauseunPause, known by their YouTube names.

Hermitcraft Server

Etho joined the HermitCraft Server at some point during the beginning of 2015, with his first official HC Video being released on the 3rd March 2015. He was fairly inactive until the 2016 re-launch of the server when he started playing regularly again. He is always seen in episodes with Docm77, a fellow Minecraft YouTuber. In the most recent re-launch of the server Etho was active once again, but only up to episode 11. It looks like there is a pattern with him making a dozen episodes or so, then going inactive.

Etho started his Terraria playthrough when 1.2 came out in 2013, playing through the game with Zisteau. 2 years later in July, he came back to the game to play through in 1.3 with Zisteau. 

Crash Landing

Etho started his Crash Landing series on the 5th September, 2014. 30 episodes later he ended the series, deciding it would be more fun to play on the modded world.  

Modded Minecraft

Some time ago, Etho compiled a selection of his favorite mods and put them together to start a new, modded, series. Although it occasionally crashes, Etho has enjoyed playing this pack, along with the enjoyment of his viewers. If you wish to download this pack that Etho made himself, simply go to one of his modded videos, look in the description, and you will find instructions on how to do it.  The series ended on the 5th of December 2016, on Episode 77.


Etho has two seasons of TerraFirmaCraft on his channel, the first one being very successful on his channel and showing the mod's tech tree as he discovered it. The reason why it ended is unclear ('Edit: Etho' recently announced the reason for ending the series in one of his 'Etho Plays Minecraft' Episodes). Season 2 of TerraFirmaCraft only recently began, with a better understanding of the mod. Etho has been able to rapidly progress through it. He is hoping to reach the end of the tech tree again after several updates and changes to TerraFirmaCraft by the mod's developers. THe series ended on the 5th of Febuary 2016 on Ep 18.

Skyfactory 2.5

Team Canada (Etho, VintageBeef, and PauseUnpause) started a Sky Factory Series and has been quite successful. Sky factory is a modded survival challenge where you start off with a Skyblock Theme and attempt to accomplish quests/achievements The series is only recently been developed and Etho uploads once every two days. In episode (#49) he leaked his middle name - Clark.

Project Ozone 2

Etho plays the pack in Kappa mode in a Skyblock style map. Kappa mode changes the recipes and game to be much more difficult to challenge seasoned mod pack players.

Ark Survival Evolved

A game of taming and fighting dinosaurs, Etho has been working on this series for some time now. He is currently posted about every time there is a new update in the developmental stages of development. He is very interested in this game and has been playing it for a considerable length of time.

Etho started playing this game, and it has now become his 3rd most popular active series on the channel, each video usually gets over 150,000 views.

Minecraft Skin

Etho's Minecraft skin is based on the character Kakashi Hatake from the Japanese manga and anime franchise Naruto. In episode 234 of his LP, he revealed that he chose the Kakashi skin because it was one of the most detailed skins at the time (even though there are better versions nowadays, he still hangs on to this version). He has never changed his skin.


Etho has not shown what he looks like, but he has given some descriptions of himself. He is 6'2" [3] . He said he is very skinny because of his "crazy metabolism" [4]. sometimes wears glasses [5].He has similar hair to one of those possible in "cube world" [6] .
