List of Minecraft Legends Mobs

In Minecraft Legends, dimensions will battle each other, and because of that, hostile mobs like zombies and skeletons are friendly and on players' side.


Zombies are the foot soldiers of your army who fight in the melee. They do not burn in Legends because of their hats.



Skeletons are bone creatures that use bow and arrow. They are your main ranged attacker in Minecraft Legends.

At the moment it is unclear if Llama is a combat mob or a utility mob. In Minecraft, they have the ability to spit at enemies, dealing low damage but high knockback. They can also carry items.

Horses are the primary vehicle in the world of Minecraft Legends. They are very fast and it is likely that players need them to create cavalry units.

Similar to the vanilla Creeper, the Minecraft Legends version of the mob also self detonates to deal damage to enemies in the radius. They will be great against masses of low HP mobs.

Emerald Cavalry Golem

An alternate option for horses. The cavalry golems can carry troops on their backs and rush toward the enemies. They have high movement speed but are rather fragile and can be killed in a few hits. They have a charge ability that stuns foes.

Mossy Golem

The mossy golem is a ranged attacker who shoots water that heals allies and temporarily slows down the enemies. Mossy Golems are the medic of your army and need to be protected, as they have no offensive ability.

Plank Golem

Similar to skeletons, plank golems is also a ranged attacker. However, they are faster and can shoot multiple arrows in succession.

Cobblestone Golem

Cobblestone golems are frontline heavy troops that fight at close range. They have higher HP than zombies but are much slower. Players need to deploy them carefully in order to maximize their usefulness.

Grindstone Golem

Grindstone golem is a powerful mob with a charge ability that can knock back multiple enemies at once. It is great in melee combat against multiple foes.

Piggos are small boars with helmets and strong horns. They are weak melee attackers that swarm their targets with numbers. Enemies can also put a magma cube catapult on top of them.


Portal Guard

Holding a chain mace on their left hand, the portal guard is one of the strongest units on the piglin side in Minecraft Legends. This mob is heavily armored, hard to kill and can deal tons of damage. Its mace can shoot out dealing damage and knockback to a whole group.

Portal guards are perfect to deploy against strong enemies and structures.

Weakest melee unit on the Piglin side. They are disposable horde mobs that have low health and damage. Players can build them as a harass unit early on.



Runts are small units with large weapons - they deal a lot of damage but are also very fragile.



Bruiser are dangerous piglin mobs who wield a number of bladed weapons. They can deal a lot of damage and have high HP.
