Minecraft Peaceful Mobs

Updated to 1.16.4!
Do you like Minecraft? In Minecraft the word mob means mobile, which refers to anything that moves. Peaceful mobs will not attack you whatsoever. 
Pigs spawn in groups of four and then start to wander off in their own directions. You can find them anywhere except the ocean, deserts, mesas, and taigas. They can be bred with carrots, potatoes, or beetroot.

Useful drops: pork, cooked pork if killed with a flint and steel, and saddle if equipped.  
Sheep also spawn in groups and are the prey of wolves. They also can be found anywhere but the ocean, deserts, mesas, and taigas. They can be bred with wheat and are able to be sheared.

Useful drops: wool (1 if killed, 1-3 if sheared, though shearing doesn't kill them), mutton, cooked mutton if killed with a flint and steel.

Cows are another pack wanderer and are not very smart as they will walk off cliffs. The only places they can not be found in are deserts, mesas, ice plains, and the ocean. They can be bred with wheat.

Useful drops: leather, beef, cooked steak if killed with a flint and steel, and milk if milked with a bucket.

 Chickens spawn in groups of one or two. They can often be found swimming in shallow water and almost anywhere else. They also lay eggs every ten to fifteen minutes. They can be bred with any kind of seeds.

Useful drops: eggs, feathers, chicken, cooked chicken if killed with a flint and steel.

Parrots are small birds that live in the jungle. They come in dark blue, light blue, white, red, and green. You can tame them with seeds and they will ride on your shoulder, though they don't stay on so well and move slowly. You can find them on the forest floor or flying high in the treetops. In the java edition of Minecraft, parrots will dance if there is a jukebox playing nearby and die if fed cookies.

Useful drops: feathers 

Squid spawn in large groups in the water . They can be found in oceans, lakes, streams, and rivers.  Guardians and elder guardians will attack squid if they see them. 

Useful drops: ink sacs.

Dolphins are marine mods that live in the lukewarm and warm ocean biomes. You can usually find them in pods jumping out of the water, but be sure to keep an eye on them because if they jump onto the beach they will suffocate. Dolphins seem to love boats as they will follow and jump over them as you are paddling. If they find a dropped item in the water, they will bump it around and play with it. If you feed them fish, they will lead you to the nearest shipwreck, underwater ruin, or buried treasure. Also, if you swim next to a dolphin, it will tag along with you, giving you the dolphin's grace effect. This effect greatly speeds up the rate at which the player swims. 

Useful drops: fish

The types of fish you will find are cod, salmon, puffer fish, and over 1,500 types of tropical fish. Fish are everywhere in the water. You can find schools of cod in the deep ocean, and salmon in the frozen oceans, rivers, and lakes. More solitary than the other types, puffer fish and and tropical fish are found in tropical oceans and shorelines. Fish are also an easy source of food. Also, just to note, if you swim near a puffer fish, it will poison you.

Useful drops: fish

Sea Turtles
Sea turtles live in the ocean, but the large adults always come to the same beach they spawned at to lay their eggs if you bred them with seagrass. Be sure to guard the eggs and babies, because hostile mobs will attack them. You can wear their shells as helmets. 

Useful drops: scutes (when baby turtles grow up) seagrass. 

Mooshrooms are cows infested with mushrooms. They only spawn on the rare mushroom plains. They will turn into cows if they are sheared. They can be bred with wheat.

Useful drops: leather, steak, cooked steak if killed with a flint and steel, five red mushrooms, milk if milked with a bucket, mushroom stew if milked with a bowl.

Ocelots spawn in groups of 2-4. They can only be found in jungles and bamboo forests. They will stalk and attack chickens. They are very skittish, and will ran away from you if you approach without sneaking.  They can be bred with fish.

Useful drops: nothing.

Horses spawn in small groups and you might have the luck to sometimes spot a baby. Horses only spawn in plains. They can be tamed and saddled. Horse armor and chests can be placed on a tamed horse. They can be bred with hay bales. If your horse is damaged, you can heal it by feeding it golden apples, golden carrots, or sugar.

 Useful drops: leather, saddle if saddled, horse armor if equipped, and chest if equipped.

Donkeys also spawn in plains and can be ridden and equipped with chests. They look a lot like horses but are a different color and have pointier ears. They can be bred with hay bales.

Useful drops: chest if equipped, saddle if saddled, leather.

Mules also only spawn in plains, and are a cross between a horse and a donkey. They have the body of a horse but the ears of a donkey. They can be bred with hay bales.

Useful drops: chest if equipped, saddle if saddled, leather.

Llamas are large animals that live in extreme hills and savanna biomes. You can tame them, and they will act as an extra inventory on your journeys. You can place carpets on them; if you take one of them using a lead, all of the other llamas in its group will follow. They can be bred with hay bales.

Useful drops: leather. chests and carpet if equipped.

Skeleton Horse
Skeleton horses spawn if a horse is struck by lightning. Then a second strike will come, and the horse will transform into four skeleton horsemen. These horses can tamed and ridden if they have no rider. They can be equipped with a saddle, but not armor.

Useful drops: bones

Zombie Horse
Zombie horses cannot spawn naturally. They must be spawned by a player. They cannot be ridden or tamed.

Useful drops: rotten flesh 

Polar Bear
Polar Bears spawn in groups of one to four and attack sheep, rabbits, and foxes. They only live in colder areas. But be aware, if there are baby bears around, the mother bear will attack you. They are also the fastest swimming mob on land, easily able to catch you.

Useful drops: fish.


Villagers live in, not surprisingly, villages, which can be found in deserts, plains, savannas, taigas, snowy taigas, and ice plains. Each villager has a specific job, which we will talk more about in a future post. You can also trade with villagers and the trade almost always involves emeralds. Villagers sleep at night, if they can find a bed in village limits. The amount of beds in a village corresponds to the number of villagers. If a bell is rung in the village, all the villagers will run to their homes. Baby villagers spend most of their day chasing each other around, and nitwit villagers go to bed after dark and wake up late.

Useful drops: nothing.
Rabbits spawn in groups of about one to four rabbits. They live in taigas, deserts, and ice plains. They can be bred with carrots or dandelions.

Useful drops: rabbit foot, rabbit hide, rabbit, cooked rabbit if killed with a flint and steel.

Bats are very common in caves, pits, and crevasses. They are the only peaceful mob that flies. (It is hanging upside down in the center of the picture.)

Useful drops: nothing.

Foxes are small mobs that spawn in taiga, mega taiga, and snowy taiga biomes. Foxes in mega taiga biomes are white instead of orange. Foxes can be found with emeralds, wheat, berries, and more in their mouths. If you feed a fox a few sweet berries it will trust you. Although it's not tamed, the fox will still follow you around most of the time. If you drop an item the fox will come over and pick it up. If the fox picks up a sword enchanted with fire aspect, for example, the fox will not only attack with the sword, but set the mob it hit on fire. Foxes are most active at night, and are found curled up in small dens or under trees by day. Foxes scare easily, so to avoid frightening them, you should sneak. They can also be found in the water hunting salmon.

Useful Drops: Any item in their mouth.

  Wandering Trader and Trader Llamas
The wandering trader in a type of villager that randomly spawns near you as you go through the game. They will last about two days before they despawn. The items they offer depend on the biome they are in. But, unlike villagers, when you lock a trade the trader will never unlock it. At night, the wandering trader will drink a potion of invisibility to avoid hostile monsters, and will remove the invisibility with milk in the morning. The trader's llamas are different from regular llamas in a few ways. First, the carpet used for their saddle is impossible to craft. And second, they will attack any monsters or players that harmed their trader, until they die. (Regular llamas only attack once)

Useful Drops: Trader- potion of invisibility or, occasionally, a bucket of milk. Llama- 0-2 leather.
Stray Cat
Stray cats can be found in swamp huts and villages. Only black cats spawn in swamp huts. The types of cats that can be found in villages are the British Shorthair, Ragdoll, Calico, Jelly, Persian, Red, Siamese, Tabby, Tuxedo, and White varieties. Stray cats wander about inside and outside village limits, despawning after a few days. If not approached in a crouch, stray cats will run away. You can tame a stray cat with fish. Once tamed, the cat will have a collar and the ability to sit. Once tamed, it also gains the ability to be a nuisance on beds, furnaces, and chests, as when they sit on these it makes them un-usable. Cats scare away creepers and will hiss if a phantom is nearby. Both tamed and stray cats will do this. Tamed cats might bring you "gifts" if you sleep. These gifts can be rabbit's foot, phantom membrane, rabbit hide, string, rotten flesh, a feather, or chicken meat. (The cat below is a Tabby.)

Useful Drops: string

Bees are my new favorite mob in Minecraft! Pictured here is a baby bee investigating a flower. (With my dog photo-bombing) Bees spawn in semi-rare bee nests. Up to three bees can fit in a nest. About 5% of all oak trees will contain a bee nest. Bees are neutral, so if you attack them all of the bees in the area will retaliate. If you are stung by a bee, you will be poisoned for a short time and the bee will die. Bees will also grow aggressive if you take their honey or honeycomb. To prevent this hostility, place a campfire under the nest or hive before harvesting. Honey can be collected in a bottle and honeycomb is collected with shears. Bees fly around their nest looking for flowers. If they find one, they will fly next to it for a short time. Pollen will appear on the bee and it will head to its nest. When it flies into its nest, the level of honey in the nest increases. When the level hits five, the nest is ready to be harvested. If a bee with pollen flies over a farm, it will have the same affect as bone meal, making crops grow faster. Bees can be bred with flowers.

Useful Drops: nothing.
Wolves spawn in forests and prey on sheep, rabbits, and foxes. A wolf will not pay any attention to you unless you attack it, then it and all wolves nearby will attack you back. They can be bred with raw or cooked meat. Taming a wolf can be done by feeding it bones, though sometimes it can take quite a few before the wolf will become tame.

Useful drops: nothing.

Striders are strange-looking red cubes with legs. Striders reside in the nether in lava. They have a chance of spawning with a baby strider or a zombified piglin riding on top of them. The zombified piglin will have a warped fungus on a stick, so it has complete control of the strider's movements. If a baby spawns riding another strider, it will continue to grow at a normal rate. However, once it is grown, it remains on the back of the other strider. You, too, can ride a strider over lava oceans. By placing a saddle on the red creature and guiding it with a warped fungus on a stick, you control its movements. Striders can be bred like any other peaceful/neutral mob in this post. As you might've guessed, this is done with warped fungus. If a strider ventures out of the lava, it will slow down, turn blue, and shiver.

Useful Drops: Saddle if equipped

You just went through all of the peaceful mobs in Minecraft. Now you can do whatever you want with them, such as taming a wolf or befriending a fox. 

Which one will you go after?
