The most popular character in Minecraft, Molly is an amphibious fish with a penchant for using her arms to pick up rocks.
Her nickname comes from a line in the game where she calls her husband “buddy” to signal affection.
This was later shortened to “molly” in the credits, and Molly is currently in the Guinness Book of World Records.
However, it’s not the first time she’s gotten a nickname.
Molly’s father, Billy, also went by the name Molly.
“It was kind of funny because my daughter was born when I was on vacation in Thailand, and my wife’s a real tomboy,” said Billy, who now lives in Los Angeles.
“I said, ‘That’s kind of lame, but if you’re going to have a kid, why not put her on a fish and chip plate?’
So she has that name, and I have her name.”
That name also means “tomboy,” in Hawaiian, and was a reference to the fact that Molly is a tomboy.
“When Molly first came out, I was like, ‘I think that name is going to be very cool.’
So that’s what Molly is.
It was kind [of] funny to have that nickname.”
Molly is the world’s most popular aquarium fish, with over one million unique fish on the internet, according to data from the Fish ID website.
Molly was originally released in 2012 as part of the Java Edition of Minecraft, but since then has become a widely used character in other games and applications.
“Minecraft is such a huge game,” said Molly’s developer, Mojang.
“There’s millions of players and hundreds of thousands of worlds and all sorts of things that can be built on top of it, so I thought, ‘Well, why don’t I add a bunch of different characters?'”
Molly’s popularity began when she was introduced in the Java Update update in 2016, and has since grown exponentially.
“Molly has been a huge part of our development,” Mojang CEO Matt Cross told Ars.
“Every day we have more and more people creating worlds with Molly in them.
We’re just now starting to see the full impact of this.”
Cross added that the game’s developers were “thrilled” by Molly’s success.
“We have a huge, huge community of people playing the game and they love it,” he said.
“And we’re happy that Molly has become the most loved fish in the whole world.”
Molly’s name also makes her the most commonly used character on the web, with almost 20 million websites using her name.
According to data compiled by Fish ID, the characters that use Molly the least are all females, and those are the ones that are most likely to be played by women.
“Female characters tend to be more popular with a lot of young girls,” said Cross.
“You know, a lot girls are playing the Minecraft game, and they’re just looking for that cute little cute Molly.
She’s a cute little fish.”
The most frequently used female character is Candy.
Candy is also popular in a number of games, but is less popular among adults.
“The thing is, Candy is a really cute, cute, sexy, cute fish, and it’s really hard to get people to get on board with that,” said Fish ID co-founder Chris Lathrop.
“But we can do better.”
Lathro explained that the company also has an ambitious goal of making Candy “more inclusive,” adding that it’s also looking to make her more accessible to girls and women.
In an interview with Mashable, Cross said he wants to make Candy “the most popular, easiest, and most accessible fish in Minecraft.”
He added that Mojang hopes to have Candy in all the game worlds in the near future.
