Top 10 Most Annoying Minecraft Mobs

Dangerous Minecraft Mobs, 1 hit K.O. to kill five Steves, rage-enducing, that sort of stuff.
The Top Ten
1 Ghast

Well, a ghast is TECHNICALLY the strongest mob. To guarantee you get "Return to Sender", the fireballs do like 50 to a noob with no armour but 1000 exactly to another ghast.

Basically, they are even worse versions of Creepers. While thankfully, they don't have much HP and they can die from their own fireballs, they have all sorts of other issues.

Their fireballs explode AND set you on fire, and they don't die from shooting them. You can deflect them, but your timing has to be EXACTLY right. They fly, so they're difficult to hit to begin with.

They can also see you from 100 blocks away (the largest field of vision exhibited by any mob), so they may shoot you even if you can't see them.

They aren't the hardest to kill not gonna lie but that's just to say when they are in reach. Otherwise they are like moving Targets that attacks you back with a stronger projectile. The worst of them is the result of being hit. Either you get hit and start burning to death or you get flown into the lavas of the nether. They are one of the most annoying mobs in the nether cause they make you panic and needing to move around to avoid it and the nether is basically meant to make you be careful of all the lava so rushing in the nether is not a move you wanna be doing. You could also confront the Ghast and try to deflect its projectiles which is actually pretty hard. You usually fail once and start panicking from burning, accidentally fall or touch lava when trying to move around and interrupted by other nether mobs. Not the hardest mob but that would be said if it was in the overworld...well your house would probably be burned to a crisp so it's half grateful to have it in the nether

They explode blocks which knock you into lava, and their fireballs make you lose all your stuff. Their cry is annoying, you can deflect their fireballs, but it is hard to do that, and their fireballs are big.

2 Creeper

I personally didn't find the Creeper annoying. But having to play with a friend which stumbles across Creepers all the time it has kinda changed my mind. The annoying feeling of getting killed with full health and full iron armor by one of these monsters to them blowing your house down forcing you to get more resources and blocks to repair stuff it's definitely an annoying experience. They are actually also annoying outside since my shared house is surrounded by creeper explosions around the house making it look like a minefield where the mines have been exploding hard. They are not that hard to stop tho just they are very sneaky making basically no noice, they would be a nightmare for deaf people. Even if you can hear their hissing it's probably to late to do anting except maybe save your life with dropped health. But hey they offer resources for TNT so that's good

I hate skeletons more, but I recently started playing Minecraft (the last person to ever do that), and I have a feeling I'll get better at fighting skeletons. However a creeper can blow me up at any time, no matter how good I am.

Also if you see the bad omen sheep, run.

Think about it. You just explored dozens of places and have a lot of loots and
valueable items. Then when you try to sleep, you're woken up by a explosion.
The explosion blew up your house and blew up the chest that you stored your loot and
your diamond sword... Well... It was from a creeper. Not annoying, right?

Oh, the infamous Creeper. They are the most silent mob in the entire game. They have only one objective: Blow you up while you're not looking. Number 4.

3 Enderman

I like endermen probably my favorite mob in the game. They are mostly passive and kinda cute but they are the cousins of SCP-096 (The Shy Guy). Avoid eye contact and you should be good. This would be great only if you didn't wanna complete the game since you need to obtain the ender pearls to build some important items to enter The End so you are basically forced to face them (it's not the only way to get the Ender Pearls but it's the original and fastest way to obtain them). Anyways before you decide to fight them keep in mind you should equip yourself with armor and weapons except bow and arrow to take them down since they are stronger than they look. They can run in the same speed as you, drain 2+ hearts on you with full iron armor quickly and they are real tricky with their ability to teleport making you unsure where they will come and attack you. New players will probably get another game over when first encountering these purple eyed beasts. Other all they aren't that annoying ...more

They teleport can tried to kill u. One time in creative mode I saw an enderman teleporting all around my house and then I opened my front door and when the enderman was out, I quickly closed the doors and into my house.

These guys limit where you can look around as if they want to be provoked. The are crazy fast and even crazier strong. Number 5.

This SCP-096 guy is very annoying that I used a mod to get rid of endermen.

4 Skeleton

When I'm underground, trying to mine some iron or coal, or even making my trail of railroad tracks, I always get hit by something in the distance. When I turn my head around, I notice a skeleton firing arrows at me. I mash the left click as quickly as I can at the skeleton to fend myself against that pesky beast. It's worse when you get hit by a skeleton arrow and fall into a lava pool.

These stupid things constantly spawn absolutely anywhere you haven't spammed an unsightly amount of torches, not just alone but in groups.
They have ridiculous accuracy and you are basically guaranteed to take damage while fighting one if you use a melee weapon, no matter how strong.
They spawn incredibly frequently in both the Nether and the Overworld. No amount of cover is enough to deny damage.
The only thing that can stop their arrows is a shield, but this is impractical if you want to hold a totem or dual-wield anything else.
Creepers get a bad reputation for being hard to avoid but these things get on a whole new level of irritating.
If this isn't enough to convince you how aggravating skeletons are just imagine yourself hiding against a wall in a cave while on half a heart, waiting for your health to slowly regenerate, only to be one-shotted by this incessant nuisance from a position you didn't even know existed.

Um... I don't know what to write about these dudes... because of monster school, skeletons are my second favourite mob, but the arrows, it's like saying that, they don't kill anything else, except for you and wolves (wild if the wolf goes for them or tamed if the player tries to hit one). The zombies continuously try to go near them in my pe world called: ALifeInAHouseWhoSucks. I have a skeleton in there with full unenchanted gold armour and a zombie who had nearly full leather armour. And the zombie when I put the skeleton and the zombie together, the zombie tried to HUG the skeleton. Weird

Who in God's name would give these monstrosities bows and arrows? Unless you have a shield or a pet wolf along your side (which is very unlikely because who would risk the life of their pet wolf in a cave) these irritating bastards will shoot you and unless you're in easy mode their accuracy matches the accuracy of modern-day snipers. I would love these guys more or at least hate them less if they gave them swords, like any sword even if the sword is iron, diamond heck even netherite! I know it would be pretty dull if Minecraft didn't have hostile mobs that have long-range weapons but jeez they are annoying, sometimes I prefer getting sneaked up by a creeper since you can hear them getting ready to explode and since I have a pretty decent reaction time I could run away sometimes or if it's too late I could equip my shield to lessen the damage since I always keep my shield in my primary inventory

5 Witch

They are so annoying I legit have to go in to creative mode to kill it with out trying to kill it in survival and 1 time a witch was camping out at my house and I could not sleep.

You can attack it in 3 ways:

Run up to it. It'll hit you with slowness first. Then, you hit it once or twice. Wait for slowness to go away. Hit it again. It'll hit you with slowness again. Do this many times over.

Spam at it with a sword, no matter what it throws at you.

Use milk. Have a cow handy.

The reason that I hate a Minecraft witch is because they always spam you with splash potions of harming and slowness, and we can't forget splash potions of poison, they will always drink a healing potion and swiftness, and just like a iron golem, if you attack them they will always come after you. Even insane enchantments such as like fire aspect and thorns are useless on them because when fire aspect is used on them they will just drink fire res, and even if you have something like full enchanted diamond amour, if wouldn't do any thing from splash potions. The only reason that they can be useful is for potions of fire res, healing, swiftness, and water breathing.

Oh man. I'm gonna have a field day talking about Them. OH MY GOSH, they are ANNOYING. You can't burn them, you can't drown them, and they are relentless. They want to hurt you, poison you, and slow you down. The poison is the worst thing. It doesn't kill you but it does something worse. It leaves you at half a heart for a skeleton to shoot you. Not to mention, they heal themselves. Number 3.

6 Zombie Piglin

These are usually harmless, but if you accidentally hit them, it is extremely hard to get away from the aggro army. If a skeleton shoots one of them in a nether fort, they'll blame you for it once the skeleton is dead. Even worse, the same applies to players whether they die, log off, or teleport away...

These dicks are so annoying because if you hit them, they will cause so much damage! If that's not bad enough, they spawn in packs! They don't even care if you hit them by accident while trying to kill another mob! These guys just plain suck!

While they thankfully only attack if provoked, they deal a lot of damage and to top it off, they are fast and if you hit one (even by accident), the whole pack will tear you apart.

However, if you are able to OHKO one, the others don't attack you.

They're not annoying, only an idiot will attack them, and plus you don't have to fear them if you are a pro.

7 Ender Dragon

The ender dragon is the final boss to finish Minecraft it is hard to find and pretty annoying to fight.

These dragons are going to be the worst nightmare you'll ever see in Minecraft.

Pure torture on EASY MODE, man can't wait to beat the game on hard mode...

Never spawn one of these! There's a reaaon why it's in another world

8 Wither Skeleton

First of all, they are pretty quick and when they hit you they add a withering effect on you the somewhat acts like a poison bringing your health down halfways!

these guys, I have to admit, aren't super annoying on their own, but when they swarm you in combination with blazes, you don't stand a chance even in full unenchanted diamond.

9 Cave Spider

Even though they have less health than a normal spider, they still pack a poisonous bite. Not to mention that they spawn in mob spawners where they are surrounded by like 50 cobwebs.

They're little, fast, poisonous, and you can get stuck with their webs. They're horrible.

cave spiders are so god damn annoying. they spawn in the least convenient location (which has absolutely no effect on them, I might add) and always in groups, and they're fast and small, so they can easily poison and kill you if you're not more careful then a person with extreme paranoia when they realize their phone has a camera on it.

They poison and kill you. Lots and lots of fun.

10 Silverfish

When I accidentally mined stone, they just kept converting more stone into silverfish stone and eventually there is an army, so I used a potion of harming and then an army of silverfish attacked me.

They literally spawn everywhere in strongholds and there is no way anyone has survived.

They pop out of the blue and push be in lava, I sometimes think the invention of silverfish was intentionally done to get players to rage quit the game

Constantly spawn after you misclick on one bit of stone/mossy stone.

The Contenders
11 Zombie

These things are a huge pain in the behind. All these mobs ever do is be a personal annoyance and one of the biggest threats in Minecraft to millions of players around the world. Their little feet allow them to run faster than the average zombie, not to mention that they are shorter than your average zombie and takes a lot of your health and is harder to hit.

If they were as common as regulars zombies, they would be #1. They run super fast, they are small so its hard to kill, and they do just as much damage as a regular zombie, also have the same health. But, they are horrible, come across one of those in the pocket edition though, you would probably throw your phone across the room breaking it.

Sure enough, they're weak, but serously, when they're armed, and with armor, and they keep chasing you and they don't even care if they're getting hurt as long as they sense you. They can break wooden doors, and they produce a doglike-feral growling sound.

Oh, this is the worst mob. So fast I can't even deal with it. So difficult to hit. This mob is so annoying it runs around so fast. They are the mobs that can survive in sun. Only adult zombies die in the sun.

12 Villager

One time, I was being chased by a Zombie Villager without any weapon, or armory. It was dark outside, so I decided to spend the night in a fancy village in a longhouse. Unfortunately, I wanted to build a fort with some materials such as sandstone, wood, and dirt, however, as I was about to leave, some damn villager was blocking the doorway so I couldn't escape. I was trapped inside the house until daybreak. Now, I didn't have any weapons, or armour, so I couldn't even kill the villager. Villagers suck!

Although Villagers aren't dangerous, they are still annoying and sell some of the most useless items in the game for 3 emeralds. Also, the sounds they make are just weird and uncomfortable to listen to.

They are annoying because if you kill them, the other villagers will not like you and the iron golems will attack. The best way to deal with them is trap them in a pit and drop sand or gravel to suffocate them.

Their AI is very annoying because they run around quickly and know when to run away when you're about to trap them.

13 Phantom

When you are working on a build for several nights you already have to deal with the mobs,but when you don't sleep for a long time phantoms can be very annoying.

You take a long and successful mining trip, having stacks of iron, coal, and lapis. A bunch of gold and a few diamonds. You decide that it´s time to go back home and smelt your iron and gold, and store you other resources. Just when your traveling back home, night time approaches. You think whats the worse that can happen zombies and spider won´t be a challenge, and I can just avoid the skeletons, creepers, and endermen. Just then you here a faint scream and then RARA. Your hearts stops and you look behind you, nothings there, then you look up. You see something flying with a long tale and glowing green eyes. Then you say to yourself, this is going to be a long night.

It's easy to avoid them (just go to sleep every night), but they're very irritating when they do spawn.

They tend to ambush you, and if your sword misses them, you have to wait until they dive back down.

Tons spawn in difficulty hard - numbers and decent health (and damage inflicting methods) make them hard to defeat.

14 Slime

Slimes are very annoying. Especially the big ones. When you kill big slime and it dies, there will be more slimes and a medium size. And then when you kill a medium sized slime, small ones will appear. Thankfully small slimes do not hurt you. Sorry if there are some mistakes, I am not that good at English lol.

All they do is bounce around my Creative Super-flat worlds while I'm trying to build. I know you can set it to peaceful, but my builds usually include mobs, so I can't do that.

In flat worlds, they become nuisances that just get in the way. And they drop so many slimeballs that it just ends up flooding your inventory.

How are they not on here? I know they're more useful in the most recent updates, but back in 1.4.7 they were awful!

15 Magma Cube

They are slimes but need to get killed in every size , For normal slime their damage is low like at lease 1 heart , but they do 2 or 2 and half hearts ! now only that , it can even dmage you in small size which is annoying when u get cornered

Not only do they fill up your inventory but it takes forever to kill them since they split.

Magma cubes hurt more than slimes and the little ones hurt you.

Welp, they are immune to lava and if I go to lava without fire resistance, I die.

16 Bat

They are so small and are so hard to kill! Plus they fly around and make loud noises, what a nuisance! A bunch of these spawn in the sewers of a prison escape map, ANNOYING

They make really annoying sounds and add NOTHING to the game. They don't even drop experience when killed.

The sound annoying why do they exist?

This should be #1

Their high-pitched screeching noise is so annoying

They spawn in dark places, which gets SO ANOYINNG

17 Wither

These things just freaking chase you, just having no care in the world, and every block you use is useless because the can break obsidian with their blue wither skulls, so annoying!

These things just follow you all the time and it is so annoying! Never spawn one of these!

Again just no

18 Shulker

Finding a end city is hard enough, having to deal with these scaredy cats is a whole new level. Camping in their boxes and shooting small orbs making you fly up and drop down to your death, these little pests are not that easy. Feather falling or slow falling potions are essential for these guys.

Those tower rooms with multiple Shulkers are so annoying. The game turns into bullet heck and Steve/Alex pinball while you're trying to kill them and grab their shells.

They double the amount of time you spend while raiding end cities because you have to wait for the effect to wear off.

They're really annoying to fight.

19 Blaze

I'm surprised these guys weren't on here yet. Perhaps it's because they're only found in nether fortresses but that doesn't change the fact that they are most definitely annoying. They shoot fireballs at you that burn you when they hit. That's pretty annoying if you ask me.

Oh wow, these are the first things that killed me in minecraft, like their fire is annoying but there are fire resistance potions for a reason! You can trade with piglins and gold is very cheap!

They are 85% of the reason I make sure to bring a bow to the nether.

20 Pillager

I just don't like the raids because I have a tempt to kill mobs in creative mode to save room in my houses and when I kill one with the flag, all of a sudden, this annoying deep horn sound goes off once in a while and it's basically a Minecraft jump scare god I hate them so much!

These guys deal a TON of damage and can be deadly even when you're wearing full Protection IV diamond armor. I had to eat an enchanted golden apple to survive the first raid on my world.

The vindicators are the worst of the bunch, so quick and can kill you 2-3 hits in full diamond armor. They are OP as hell if you can't defend yourself

21 Ravager

There are definitely more annoying mobs in the game than ravagers, but I feel like they still deserve a spot. They're big, heavy-hitting, often carry annoying illagers, and to top it off, they are fast as hell. Sure, they're not as annoying on Bedrock where you can just spam them with your maxed-out sword to kill them, but on Java, you need to time your swings well, which gives the ravager an opportunity to kill you. Unlike the phantom, however, ravagers actually give a valuable reward upon death: a saddle. It's something that's obviously really rare for no real reason.

These monsters are fast, can be ridden by evokers, deal a lot of damage, have a long reach and have a lot of health.

They are not actually that bad in bedrock. In Java you can't even hit them without losing half your health

Tons of damage, tons of health mildly fast, can be ridden by a pillager and take a long time to despawn.

22 Guardian

I play with loads of mods, and I found this cool stone cube in the middle of the ocean.
I mine in, only to discover that it's a cave with 2 guardian spawners. I get murdered by these guys multiple times, never managing to get my drops back. If features like guardian caves were in vanilla they would absolutely be higher on this list.

Guardians make it very difficult to mine ocean temples because they spawn infinitely and their attacks are impossible to dodge within a certain range and without cover.

It's only the elder ones

23 Wolf

Ok, these things kill my sheep. I'm trying to have infinite wool here! Look face it, I know we all hate when skeletons shoot us, but wolves are annoying as heck when they kill our sheep! Almost everyone knows what to do when there is more than one skeleton, get one of the skeletons to shoot the other one! What's the big deal with wolves! I just use skeletons for bone meal and bones, that's it.

I used to have to deal with these but then I got so angry cause they kept killing my sheep, that I went out and killed every single 1 of them! Also, I put torches around so skeletons would stop spawning cause they were always coming because of the skeletons

I have a farm in my village survival world and one night, a bunh of these appeared to attack skeletons but they kept killing my sheep. UGH! I get so annoyed when they do this. Fortunately, I found the solution, place magma blocks around my sheep pen

Wolves just kill innocent sheep to get food but why? they are not annoying at all...

24 Elder Guardian

Gives mining fatigue, underwater, and has boring drops.

25 Stray

Shoots slowness arrows - you can't sprint,
Have player tracking AI in newer versions
of the game and with a name tag and enchanted netherite gear could follow you (and kill you) forever!

Skeletons whose arrows inflict slowness.
