Mojang never stops adding new mobs to Minecraft, as these AI entities are an integral part of the game that enhances the environment and players’ interaction with the world. The list of these entities keeps getting longer as Mojang releases new yearly updates. The fanbase is also most keen on new mobs and their features.
With the release of The Wild Update in June 2022, Mojang added four new mobs to Minecraft. This trend continues in the game as the developers have announced two more mobs for their next 1.20 update. Mojang will persist in adding more mobs to the game, and players new to the sandbox title will strive to learn all about them.
Lists of all passive, neutral, and hostile Minecraft mobs as of November 2022
As of November 2022, a total of 77 Minecraft mobs naturally spawn in a regular world. It is important to point this out since there are several unreleased and hidden mobs that can only be summoned by commands.
Furthermore, one mob is under experimental features and will only be available in future updates. The best way to segregate all these mobs is by their nature and availability.
These are peace-loving mobs that will not harm players in any way. They will try to escape the danger if they are attacked. Here is the complete list of passive mobs present in Minecraft as of November 2022:
- Glow Squid
- Skeleton Horse
- Snow Golem
- Tropical Fish
- Wandering Trader
Upcoming passive mob
Camels are upcoming passive mobs that are somewhat available in the game. Java Edition players can only interact with them in the latest snapshot if they activate the 1.20 update experimental data pack while creating a new world. Whereas Bedrock Edition can have them through the beta and preview versions.
Neutral mobs are tricky to understand since they can be passive and hostile towards players. Their hostility depends on the player’s actions and behavior towards them. Of course, all these mobs will be provoked when a player attacks them, but some mobs also have additional conditions in which they become hostile.
Here is the full list of neutral mobs in Minecraft as of November 2022:
- Cave Spider
- Iron Golem
- Polar Bear
- Trader Llama
- Zombified Piglin
Since Minecraft is a survival-based game, most entities present are hostile towards players. As soon as they enter the detection zone, these mobs start hunting and attacking. The game is also known for some of these iconic hostile mobs that can make a player’s life a living hell in the game.
Here is the complete list of hostile mobs in Minecraft as of November 2022:
- Chicken Jockey
- Elder Guardian
- Magma Cube
- Piglin Brute
- Skeleton Horseman
- Spider Jockey
- Wither Skeleton
- Zombie Villager
Though players will regularly fight several hostile mobs, two of them are the most powerful. Hence, they are called boss mobs since it is not easy to slay them. One of them is tied to the game’s main quest line, while the player must summon the other.
Here is a small list of two boss mobs present in Minecraft as of yet:
