Minecraft mobs: A list of all Minecraft mobs and monsters

Minecraft mobs are the living things in Minecraft - short for mobile, these sometimes adorable, sometimes aggressive creatures can be found around the many biomes of the blocky universe. They will interact and respond to you, other players and other mobs, whether it's a creeper knocking on your door, or a pig in the pen in your back garden.

Minecraft mobs are sensitive 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 at times.

In Creative mode, Minecraft mobs will never attack you, but they can be divided into three behavioral categories in Survival and Hardcore mode, which include passive, neutral, and hostile. The iron golem and snow golem utility mobs can be crafted to assist you against hostile mobs. Trusted mobs cannot be tamed, but they have special behavior when interacting with and include dolphins, ocelots, and foxes. Here is a list of all the mobs and monsters that can be found wandering the vast Minecraft landscape.

Passive Minecraft mobs

Passive Minecraft mobs will not attack you and flee when attacked. They have the ability to breed, so you will see baby animals in the same area. Most passive mobs can be tamed, if not already, like horses in Minecraft. Other backyard friends can provide resources, including sheep's wool or cow's milk.

Minecraft neutral mobs

Neutral mobs in Minecraft will attack you if provoked, which can be useful if you are looking for drops of objects or XP. Some neutral mobs like wolves will attack other mobs like rabbits or sheep, and llamas will be aggressive towards wild wolves. Minecraft bees are the latest addition and can be found in forests and floral plains, or hives can be built using wooden planks and honeycomb.

Hostile mobs of Minecraft

Hostile mobs in Minecraft are dangerous and aggressive and will attack you within a certain range, usually 16 blocks, with no obstacles. However, some mobs are able to detect you from 100 blocks away. Flying mobs like a ghost in Minecraft will spawn on top and attempt to swoop in and attack you. A mob boss is a special type of hostile, which has a wider detection range and more health, and includes the dragon ender and the withers.
