With the growing number of Minecraft mobs, it can get difficult to keep track of all of them, especially if you're a beginner. Recently, The Wild update added four new mobs to the game including Warden, Frog, Tadpole and Allay. Mobs are non-playing characters in the game which are categorized into passive, neutral and hostile. It is important to know about mobs as some of them can be useful by giving out items and resources. This can be helpful in your exploration. But then again, there are some mobs which are hostile towards you and you need to stay away from them or risk being killed. So, let us check out all the details about mobs in this Minecraft tips and tricks guide.
Passive mobs will not attack the players and will run away when being attacked. They are some of the most common mobs in the game. Many of them give resources and items that can help you move forward in the game. In 2022, these are all the mobs that you will encounter in Minecraft:
Allay, Axolotl, Bat, Cat, Chicken, Cod, Cow, Donkey, Fox, Frog, Glow Squid, Horse, Mooshroom, Mule, Ocelot, Parrot, Pig, Pufferfish, Rabbit, Salmon, Sheep, Skeleton Horse, Snow Golem, Squid, Strider, Tadpole, Tropical Fish, Turtle, Villager, Wandering Trader
Among them, all farm mobs like cows, chickens, pigs, horses etc give you meat. You can also ride horses. You can use fish for meat as well. Some mobs give you decorative pieces and important resources under specific conditions.
These mobs will not attack you unless you attack them first. Otherwise they will behave exactly like a passive mob. Some of them are mildly attacking in nature and will let you go if you evade their sight. However, some will not stop at any cost. Check their list:
Bee, Cave, Spider, Dolphin, Enderman, GoatIron, Golem, Llama, Panda, Piglin, Polar Bear, Spider, Trader Llama, Wolf, Zombified Piglin
Among them, you can tame some neutral mobs like bees, pandas and llamas. But before taming them, they will remain neutral and can attack you.
These are the most dangerous mobs in the game. Their whole purpose is to kill the main player. They have different weapons and ways to attack and kill you.
