This page contains content on features that may be included in the next update to Java Edition.
These features have appeared in Java Edition development versions, but the full update containing these features has not been released for Java Edition yet.

Hoglins are hostile mobs which spawn in the crimson forest. They are the only breedable mob (and a source of food) in the Nether.


Hoglins are found in herds of 4 in crimson forests, they may respawn over time. 25% spawn as babies.


Adult hoglins drop:

  • 2–4 raw porkchop (cooked porkchop if they die burning). The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 7 with Looting III.
  • 0–2 leather. The maximum amount is increased by 1 per level of Looting, for a maximum of 5 with Looting III.
  • 5 if killed by a player or tamed wolf.


Hoglins attack the player upon sight. Adult attacks flings a player into the air; babies also attack, dealing less damage and not flinging. They don't attack players standing near warped fungi, running up to 7 blocks away. Also, they have a very high knockback resistance. Baby hoglins flee when hit.

Hoglins can be bred using crimson fungi, so a baby hoglin spawns, giving 1-7 experience. The growth of a baby hoglin is accelerated using crimson fungi. They cannot be bred while they are running away from warped fungi.

Hoglins are hostile to piglins if they attack first; they won't attack other mobs.

Hoglins can't swim in water and drown. Babies appear to play with baby piglins, running nearby. Despite being nether mobs, they aren't naturally immune to fire.
