They are the animals and villagers who won’t attack you in the game. They are typically peaceful and can be tamed and bred in order to provide resources. Some of the fan favourite passive mobs include sheep, cows, foxes, bats, chickens, and cod. Other friendly villagers can be found in villages, such as traders and villagers, as well as resources from farm animals, like wool from sheep and milk from cows.

Tameable Passive

They are animals that can be tamed in order to be ridden or used for other purposes. These include types such as donkeys and horses, cats and parrots, as well as mules, skeleton horses, and allays. 


They will not attack you unless provoked, but they can be useful tools in order to gain items and experience points when defeated. Examples of neutral mobs include dolphins, polar bears, llamas, pandas, and wolves, as well as bees and Iron Golems. Additionally, there are various neutral monsters with specific behaviours, such as spiders and cave spiders, who become hostile if the light level falls below ten.
