Recently started playing Minecraft Java Edition after about 4/5 years but that's not important. I saw some people on a server and their username was like the moving garble you would find on like signs or pop-ups on Minecraft maps but instead, it was on their username. I don't remember seeing this back in the day and was wondering. How do you actually do it? Been doing some scouting and couldn't find anything about. Thx
I don't think you can do that with just a user name change, I doubt Mojang would allow it as you'd be able to troll/grief and no one would be able to figure out your name. My guess is it's some server side mod that's doing it for specific players on that server.

To tell them how to live is to prevent them living.
No idea I've never played on Hypixel, maybe ask their admins or a staff member? If that's the only place you've seen it, then it's a pretty good guess that it's a server feature of some kind. If not, I would think it's a hack of some kind, the obfuscation code is §k (or I guess \u00A7k in server properties) and can be used on signs and books with an external editor or mod, but I really think that code would not be allowed in a Minecraft user name.
