Witches are hostile mobs that attack players by throwing potions which create clouds of damaging gas.
The Witch's appearance is similar to its default counterpart in the base game, with the exception that they are in a hunched position when approaching players, and its hat is straight upwards, unlike its Java or Bedrock counterpart. It has a large wart on its nose.
Witches concoct and throw foul brews to attack players and pets. On impact they explode, creating noxious potion clouds. The potion attack has a small circular radius, and disappears after a short time, all the while causing constant damage to anyone inside its radius. These brews heavily resemble the Shadow Brew potion. Witches attack from a short distance away and retreat back once they have done so. The player can also shoot the potions mid-air to make them explode sooner, but it still can damage the player and pets.
- Unlike the base game, the witch is hunched over while walking.
- Witches are the only non-illagers in the Arch-Illager's army (except the illager war machines). Their only purpose was to help the Arch-Illager with potion supplies.
