Obtaining[edit | edit source]
Fishing[edit | edit source]
Pufferfish can be obtained by fishing. The chance of one being caught can be increased with the Lure enchantment.
Guardians[edit | edit source]
Another method of obtaining them is through killing guardians and elder guardians. This method is very inefficient, as the drop rate is roughly 0.325% (2.5% probability of a rare drop times 13.0% probability that rare drop will be a pufferfish).
Usage[edit | edit source]
Food[edit | edit source]
Eating a pufferfish restores 1 () and 0.2 saturation points. It also gives the player
Hunger III for 15 seconds (total loss 3 ()),
Nausea II for 15 seconds, and
Poison IV for a minute, forcing the player down to 1 () for 48 seconds (30 seconds on peaceful).
Ocelots[edit | edit source]
Ocelots and cats are in no danger of food poisoning.
Brewing ingredient[edit | edit source]
Brewing a pufferfish into an awkward potion gives a potion of Water Breathing, which allows players to breathe underwater.

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The consumption of pufferfish inflicting the player with nausea and poison is actually based on reality, as real pufferfish contain the extremely dangerous toxin Tetrodotoxin within their organs, especially their liver. Muscle tissue and blood only contain trace amounts. In East Asia, pufferfish are considered a delicacy known as fugu, as small parts of the fish are actually edible.
- If this dish is prepared incorrectly, it can be lethal through respiratory paralysis. Therefore, any chef preparing fugu would have to have special licensing/certification to prepare this dish.
