Minecraft mobs are the living entities in Minecraft – short for mobile, these sometimes adorable, sometimes aggressive creatures can be found roaming the many biomes of the blocky universe. They will interact and respond to you, other players, and other mobs, whether that’s a creeper knocking at your door, or a pig in the pen in your back garden.
Minecraft mobs are susceptible to the same physics and environmental changes that affect players, such as catching fire or drowning. They can be attacked and killed with weapons, and when killed drop resources and experience points, with hostile mobs dropping rarer items on occasion.
In Creative mode, Minecraft mobs will never attack you, but can be divided into three behavioural categories in Survival and Hardcore modes, which include passive, neutral, and hostile. Utility mobs iron golem and snow golem, can be crafted to assist you against hostile mobs. Trusting mobs can’t be tamed, but have a special behaviour when interacted with and include dolphins, ocelot and even the adorable Minecraft fox. Here’s a list of all the mobs and monsters that can be found wandering the vast Minecraft landscape.
