Pufferfish Minecraft

The ocean biomes within Minecraft are often like their own little worlds that hold a variety of different life that is quite separate from the surface world. To properly take advantage of your surroundings it would do you a wealth of good to understand the very creatures that dwell within these ocean biomes so that you can take advantage of the resources that they can offer. The pufferfish is one of these examples and is far more unique in its properties than people give it credit for.


Pufferfish Minecraft


In this article, we shall go over the pufferfish and how it can be better understood for your own benefit.


How To Find


As alluded to before, pufferfish can only be found in ocean biomes, oftentimes spawning in groups of 3 within lukewarm or deep lukewarm ocean biomes, so keep the temperature of the climate in mind when looking for them.

Keep in mind, however, they more often than not will spawn on the surface.


Behavior


A pufferfish is unique in how it will act around players and other mobs. If approached by the aforementioned characters it will immediately inflate itself as a form of self-defense.


Behavior of Pufferfish in Minecraft


When a pufferfish is fully puffed, any player or mob that touches it will not only be damaged but receive the poisoned status effect. A pufferfish will also fully inflate themselves if they take damage of any kind, so be wary if you plan on killing one outright so as to circumvent any unnecessary damage.


Drops and Acquisition


For those who are seeking to gain the most out of these creatures here is a list of items that can be acquired from pufferfish upon their deaths:


  1. Bone Meal
  2. Pufferfish
  3. 1-2 bones
  4. 1-3 experience points


Keep in mind that there are varying chances for the probability of bone meal and bones being dropped by pufferfish in the first place. For bonemeal, it is a 5% chance. For bones themselves, however, it is a 25% chance.


If you have a metal bucket with you, however, you can also acquire it whole for possible brewing opportunities.

Alternatively, pufferfish can also be gained through fishing if you desire it, making another avenue for which you can obtain this unique aquatic creature.


Also be extremely wary of the idea of consuming pufferfish itself, for while it may restore hunger you're going to be hit by a whole host of debuffs. These debuffs include hunger, poison, and nausea, which can all make your life very miserable if all are activated at once. It’s very much recommended that you don’t treat pufferfish as a food item and more as a brewing ingredient for your convenience.


Conclusion


Pufferfish are interesting ocean-dwelling creatures that can’t necessarily be consumed like much of their more common counterparts. Just because they cannot be used for consumption and healing, however, doesn’t mean that they don’t have a value that can be exploited in your favor. With a pufferfish in a bucket, you can create a potion of water breathing or a mundane potion. It’s up to you how best to use such a creature, and to notice how best it can suit your needs.
