Top 10 Best Minecraft Mobs

The Top Ten
1 Enderman

Endermen are my favorite mobs in Minecraft. They can teleport and pick up blocks. I just love anything to do with the End. They're also very powerful. For their health, you would have to hit them 40 times (they have twice the health of a player) with your bare fist to kill them.

It's extremely hard to kill them because they teleport away at the first sign of damage, and you can't use ranged weapons because they can sense those coming and just teleport away. There are about two ways to kill them: Use water (because it damages them), but you might need more than one bucket because they'll just teleport away from you, or build a platform that's only two blocks tall and hit them multiple times with a sword.

But the good thing about them is as long as you don't look at them above the torso (because they see that as disrespect), they won't attack you. When they do, you're probably already dead because they hit you a couple of times, and before you can react, they teleport to face you another way and hit you again and again until you die. A way to prevent this is to wear a carved pumpkin head, and they won't react.

They are also the only mob known to live in all three dimensions: the overworld (anywhere except the ocean), Warped Forests in the Nether, and End Cities and the dragon platforms in the End.

2 Creeper

Creepers are so cute! Not to mention, they're the face of Minecraft! Creepers should be number one! They easily fool you the first time you play. They're so cute, and you want to give them a hug. It turns out they want to give you a hug as well - a very explosive hug.

These mobs are also dangerous. They can blow you up, and they are very dangerous to your base. Walk outside and, "boom!"

Quite a dangerous mob, but so cute. I love this mob.

Creepers, in one-to-one combat, aren't that hard. They don't move particularly fast, they are weak to ranged attacks, and you can easily stop them from blowing up by killing them quickly.

However, the scariest part is when they sneak up on you. When you're trying to hunt, mine, snipe, or mind your own business, these green monsters lurk in the shadows, kamikaze-ing themselves with deadly force. You'll be dead before you even know it. The only warning you get is the soft, snake-like hiss.

3 Ender Dragon

The Ender Dragon is, by far, the best mob, or boss, in Minecraft. She (it's actually female) is the most powerful mob in Minecraft, not including Herobrine, and also the most iconic. The Ender Dragon was classified as the main antagonist of the game and is the only reptile-based mob in the whole game.

Her appearance is majestic, as she seems to gracefully soar through the air. Her power is unbeatable by any other entity (not including players), making her both powerful and awesome. Do you know how many experience points she gives you? 75 levels! That is decent loot. The dragon is also the ruler of a dimension, which is also a big thumbs-up boost to her awesomeness. You must love the Ender Dragon.

4 Wither

The Wither is that thing that is hard to spawn, hard to kill, and hard to regret killing. It is a hard fight, but the beacon you get afterward is super rewarding. I think the Ender Dragon fight is more fun, but this fight is more unique. Plus, it is more fun on multiplayer because it causes more destruction, and you can spawn it anywhere. Perfect for anarchy servers.

The Wither is by FAR better because it has 300 hearts, and the Ender Dragon only has 200 hearts. Plus, it can drain energy from other entities and blast through Obsidian.

NOTE: The Ender Dragon is immune to most negative potion effects, but NOT the Wither effect.

The Wither is WAY better.

5 Wolf

Whoever kills my pet wolf, I will come to your house. KIDDING! Anyway, from the first time I tamed a wolf, I literally fell in love.

I love wolves, and having them as a pet dog really helps. They will attack any unwanted hostile mobs that trouble you, and they look so cute. I always get really attached to them, despite them only being computer-generated. I love wolves and dogs!


I love dogs and wolves in real life, but these ones in Minecraft are great protection against zombies, skeletons, endermen, and all those other mobs, while the cat scares the creeper.

6 Skeleton

A very smart undead mob. It is smarter than the zombies, who charge straight towards you without caring that they are being burned in sunlight. Skeletons will take shelter under a tree or in a lake to avoid being burned before they shoot arrows.

Sometimes, they team up with other mobs and fire arrows at you while the other mob distracts you. In almost all of my Minecraft survival worlds, I have been killed by a skeleton at least once, usually while fighting another mob.

I also love the Wither Skeleton variant, and you guys will say, "What's that got to do with Skeletons?" Well, in earlier versions, when Wither Skeletons were added, you had to use a Skeleton spawn egg in the Nether to spawn Wither Skeletons because Wither Skeleton spawn eggs were not added yet.

7 Zombified Piglin

They should be made when a zombie attacks a pig. I wish they wouldn't all attack when you hurt one. How about 10, and self-defense doesn't count?

They're awesome. They kill a lot of the vanilla mobs if you put them in mob battles!

Hard to kill because when you attack them, you get all of them. Plus, they have butter swords.

8 Pig

I like pigs because they are cute and they always step on my cake. Once, I made a world filled with pigs! Then I created this thing and offered it to one of my friends, Megan. It was called a fresh door. There was also a fried door.

But I also like pigs because, well, I just do. I even made a vow to never kill pigs unless they were evil "laser pigs," so I could save the real pigs. But I like pork too, so I like to eat a little at breakfast with some butter (gold block).

Pigs are awesome. If you ever "run out of horses," find the common pig! Or you could just keep some in your farm for decoration, or just eat roasted pig! Nom nom barbecue.

9 Blaze

In my opinion, Blazes are the best mob in the game. They are found in Nether fortresses, which are similar to a castle.

Blazes have spinning rod/stick-like things circling around a cloud of smoke with a head. When you near them, a fire lights in their smoke cloud. After a few seconds, they shoot a volley of three fireballs at you and then repeat the cycle. This is somewhat unique, as no other mobs besides the skeleton, blaze, wither, ghast (and I think the Ender Dragon in PS3 and Xbox 360 versions), and maybe a few others, have this ability. Blazes are also the only mob besides ghasts to shoot fireballs.

For these reasons, I think Blazes are the best mob in the game. And otherwise, I just like them.

10 Ocelot

I am a cat lover at heart (no wonder I earned the Lion Hunter achievement). I play on Minecraft Bedrock, by the way. Ocelots should be in the top five.

Besides, Creepers stink. Once, I had to stay in my house for five days and then switch it to Peaceful so a Creeper wouldn't get in. Besides, they scare Creepers, so can this one scare the Creeper down to the bottom of this list? Please?

But sadly, if you lock a Creeper up in a cage with cats, it gets to a point where the Creeper explodes and kills all the cats.

The Contenders
11 Villager

Best mob ever! You can kill them, kidnap them, turn them into zombies and cure them for cheaper trades, enslave them, keep them in a one-block space for all eternity, start raids on purpose for cheaper trades, potentially killing them all, and many more!

My vote goes to the Villager. Although some have rip-off trades, the majority have some really awesome trades.

Who helps you out when you want to ride a pony? Who helps you locate woodland mansions which are full of loot? Who gives you armor and weapons when yours have broken, and you are getting chased after? They are not players. They are Villagers.

12 Mooshroom

I think they are one of the best because they are, one, very rare. Two, they provide food. And three, they have one of the more unique textures. It is the only mob that is mainly red and has mushrooms (hence the name) on its back. Plus, they also give beef if killed. So, a worthy mob.

Oh my! It's a red cow with a mushroom on its back! How cool. How can you not adore its CUTE LITTLE FACE?! Plus, you can get awesome stuff from it like mushrooms, mushroom stew, milk, leather, and meat! AND they only spawn in the most EPIC biome ever!

I have over 1000 mooshroom-based items in Minecraft: statues, pets, and I also have a mushroom biome hideout inside a giant mushroom. Oh yeah, and a mooshroom plushie I ordered off the internet. Vote the mooshroom!

13 Wither Skeleton

Wither Skeletons are FRIGHTENING! Even if your brightness setting is on full, you'll barely see them creeping towards you until it's too late. They'll chase you down with their sprinting, beat you with their sword, and give you the Wither effect to finish you off. They also sometimes drop wither skeleton skulls when you beat them, which are handy to face the Wither.

They are one of the only mobs that cause wither and are easily one of the most unique mobs. There is likely some hidden lore to them, as it is weird that they are taller than most mobs. They also look cool and, being someone who makes custom mobs, I often find these being the center of some of my best ideas.

14 Ghast

They are like giant cats, and it is fun to go inside them in creative mode. Also, it's nice to spawn a bunch and have a chorus of them.

They are quite easy to beat if you've got a bow. If not, you're pretty much doomed.

The Nether is so hard already. They shouldn't be as hard to fight.

15 Iron Golem

I like the protection the iron golem offers. It's a cool mob, and I will vote for it. Even though it didn't protect me from a creeper that was right in front of it.

Once, I went to a village and accidentally hit a villager, and the Iron Golem killed me. So, I went back and tried to kill the Iron Golem, but it killed me again. This cycle repeated a lot of times.

One of the most powerful mobs, it only attacks with reason, if you hurt a villager or if you hurt it. Not exactly the brightest, but definitely reasonable.

16 Zombie

Good mechanics. It turns villagers into zombies that you can cure afterward. Really scary when in a dark cave, just hearing their groaning and not knowing where it comes from. It is the basic enemy, but it is a good one.

From being the weakest mob ever to the most dangerous mob in the Overworld! Why? Because they come in hordes if you just punch one zombie! One or three you can handle, but a whole pack is just unbearable!

Okay, they gang up on you. We all know they are so cute! Six or more of them and you are done for. They are the only way to obtain potatoes without villages. The most boss mob in Minecraft, with the creeper at number two.

17 Cow

You get plenty of milk from them when you. Although Creepers are my favorite, I think cows are always a primary source of survival in your first days. They produce leather armor, meat, and milk. In a world called "Adventure World," I trapped a cow in midair, and I can milk it and it can't escape. I eat cakes, and all the work came from cows. Their udders really produce something!

The cows are the reason why cake and milk exist.

18 Spider

The best parkour mob in the game. They can climb walls! I don't think you are getting away from them.

Besides that, they are nice pets if you keep them under a sun lamp. Until the sun goes down, you'll have a nice peaceful spider. Too bad it will kill you in your sleep.

They are so cute in the daytime.

19 Magma Cube

This should be higher for five reasons: #1: can swim in lava, #2: no fall damage, #3: jumps higher than slimes, #4: looks cooler, #5: babies do damage.

Cute little jelly blobs! I am always happy when I see these little guys! But only the little ones, not the giant ones though.

This guy is a pain when I go to the basalt/blackstone place. I can't get anything without a magma cube coming over and burning me into the flames as if he thinks I was born in the flames.

20 Slime

Slimes are the best mobs ever! I based my Minecraft skin off of it, dang it!

Besides being completely adorable, slimes can be a formidable foe. You don't expect them because they are hard to find, and it makes killing them much harder when they can split into fourths. Plus, once you get a slime to its final form, you are rewarded with a baby slime, which can be killed for precious slime balls or can be kept as pets that won't kill you!

My friend has a pet slime named Thomas. VOTE SLIMES!

Slimes on a flat world are the absolute worst mob to face. This makes them the strongest force I have ever seen in the overworld. Overall, though, zombie pigmen take the lead. Slimes will always spawn in a flat world, will be the most common mob, and will surprise the player if they aren't looking around. I cannot count the number of times I have been hit by a slime because I haven't been looking.

Also, slimes can hurt you even if you killed them once. They have three stages, two of which could be a threat. They do not back down and will survive in the light. They can match zombies in mobs and are one of the most difficult mobs to find in a vanilla Minecraft server (no mods) because one must find a slime chunk to find slimes. Swamps and slime chunks are the only places where one can find a slime.

Additionally, slimes are needed to make sticky pistons, a valuable resource that many players use for redstone contraptions. Their usefulness cannot be turned down. Skeletons have bones, which are useful in some aspects, but only if one has a mob grinder or melons or pumpkins. Another way skeletons are useful is for small-time farming. However, many people use redstone to automatically farm, and with these redstone contraptions, some players use sticky pistons.

Zombies are useful for getting potatoes, carrots, and rotten flesh. However, carrots and potatoes can be found in villages, which are easily found in a desert, and rotten flesh is really only good with milk because of food poisoning. Once again, these items are not as rare as slimes. There are numerous biomes, and swamps have been one of the hardest biomes to find.

Creepers only have one use to the player: gunpowder, which is used for potions and TNT. TNT, for one, is mainly used for griefing and mining. However, in my experience, I have not met a single player who used TNT for the purpose of mining. Wolves and cats are domestic animals whose only purpose is to keep the player company and... more

21 Chicken

My personal favorite. I hang out with them all the time! They also can't die from falls. Without them, we wouldn't have cake! One of the first three mobs, I believe.

I like chickens. They are funny to look at. I am also a bird watcher and lover, so chickens really do it for me.

An automatic chicken farm/cooker is so cool, and baby chickens are so cute.

22 Ravager

Badass and has awesome attacks. It really looks menacing and is a real threat during raids.

They are so cute, even though they are hostile!

23 Squid

Give the poor squid a break! Just because Sky hates them doesn't mean you should too! They are derpy. And let's face it, the water would be pretty boring without them.

The squids are so stupid in ExplodingTNT's videos, and yet so ruthless in If Squids Took Over Minecraft.

You only get a few ink sacs if you kill them. Then, you can write in your diary!

24 Vindicator

Why is this mob so low? It is my favorite mob in the raids because it knows axe PvP, and if you name it Johnny, it goes berserk and kills everything in sight. Truly a remarkable mob. Also, it is OP. I remember starting a hardcore world and spawning right near a woodland mansion. Then, one of these things ran out of the mansion and killed me. Great!

25 Silverfish

Silverfish are hard to fight because they are one of the smallest hostile mobs in the game. They are easily the death of players who are close to the End Portal. They are truly dangerous, but standing on 2 blocks helps as they can't get on it, and then you can kill them easily.

Such an underrated mob. I mean, come on. You break a piece of stone and they pop out, trying to push you into lava! You may not see them too much, but still, how cool is their attack?

You mean they are overrated. What a ripoff of the wolf, you guys! They make annoying sounds, and technically, they can be found absolutely anywhere!
