One of Minecraft’s less-mentioned hostile mobs is the Vex, a flying sword-wielding creature summoned by the dangerous and elusive Evokers. For years, the Vex has looked a little out of place when compared to the rest of Minecraft’s consistent design language, but a new Minecraft: Java Edition snapshot is testing a redesign to fix that issue.

Minecraft: Java Edition Snapshot 22w45a is now rolling out to interested players on PC, and features a number of new features and changes. The headlining addition is, of course, a brand-new design for the Vex that alters its dimensions and textures to align more with Minecraft’s visuals. Now, the Vex appears to be quite similar to the Allay, but with more aggressive wings, eyes, and — of course — its deadly sword.
