The "I give up" Hole is a small square hole in the ground, filled with lava. There is usually a sign saying The "I give up" Hole nearby. I appears in many areas and places.
The "I give up" Hole is used in cases when character(s) in the video wants to commit suicide. The hole always appears near the said player, and the player who wishes to commit suicide simply walks in, killing themselves. Villagers often shoot themselves into the hole in large quantities, as seen in videos like If Emeralds and Dirt Switched Places. In If Lava was Invisible, That Annoying Troll created multiple fake "I give up" holes which were empty; BaconCrafter fell for this, and later gave up on giving up.
- In If ExplodingTNT and Pink Sheep Switched Places - Minecraft (Part 1), a Noob uses a specialized version of the "I Give Up" hole which is instead called "The "IJustSawAnUglyPersonItScaredMe" hole".
- Another specialized versions are The "Someone stole all my diamonds and it's not even worth anymore I give up" Hole (If Diamonds were Invisible), The "I'm going out of business" Hole (Herobrine vs. Freddy Fazbear), The "I can speak in color so I give up" Hole (If Minecraft was Black and White), "Infinite I give up" Hole (If Emeralds and Dirt Switched Places), and the Black and White I Give Up Hole (If You Could Go To The Past in Minecraft).
- Sometimes characters use normal lava pits instead of The I Give Up Hole to commit suicide. This happens in Hacker vs. Bully, in If Money was Added to Minecraft and in If You Could Use Your Left Hand.
- In If Minebux was Added to Minecraft, the "I give up" hole is called the "I give up I'm becoming a Roblox YouTuber" hole, and it costs 50 million "Minebux" to use.
