The pig (ブタ, Pig) is a passive mob found in Minecraft.

Origin[edit]

Pigs are common passive mobs in Minecraft that spawn in groups of up to 3 on most grassy biomes in the Overworld when the light level is above 7. When killed, they drop between 2-3 pieces of raw/cooked porkchop and between 1-7 EXP points. They follow players holding carrots, potatoes or beetroots and if 2 pigs are fed any of these items, they will breed and a piglet will spawn, accruing between 1-7 EXP orbs upon doing so.

Pigs can also be ridden when equipped with a saddle and controlled with a carrot on a stick. When struck by lightning, they irreversibly transform into Zombified Piglins.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a costume[edit]

The pig costume for Mii Brawler.

A pig appears in Round 7 of DLC as a paid Mii Brawler costume. To match the Mii Brawler's model, the pig is given a more humanoid appearance.

Trivia[edit]

  • The Mii Costume's chest is a mirror of the back and lacks the nipples found on on the actual pig texture.
  • In the Mii Costume's trailer, the pig faces off against characters trying to hit it with a fire attack, referencing a common in game technique of killing a pig with fire to pre-cook the pork-chops it drops.
  • The Mii Costume conceptually resembles the unimplemented Pigman mob, which was planned to be a humanoid version of the already existing pig mob.
  • The Mii Costume's texture seems to be taken from versions of Minecraft prior to 1.14, as many of the textures were altered with that update.
