Nausea warps and wobbles the player's vision similarly to a nether portal. The effect does not change its power as its potency changes. It can only be obtained from eating a Pufferfish.

In Bedrock Edition, it can be cured with tonic.


Nausea causes the player's vision to warp and wobble, with the distortion ramping up and down at the start and end of the effect. Although Nausea can be given in the normal range of levels, the level has no impact; it does not increase the distortion.

Nausea is affected by the "Distortion Effects" option under video settings or accessibility settings. As the distortion effects values is lowered, the nausea effect is increasingly replaced by a green fog around the edges of the screen. At lower values the warp and wobble effect is lesser and the green fog effect is greater, and vice versa. At 100%, the green fog is entirely disabled, and at "Off" (0%), the distortion is entirely disabled.

The green effect when the 'Distortion Effects' option is set to 'OFF'.

Unaffected mobs[edit]

Only boss mobs are immune. Although not immune, all other mobs are unaffected by Nausea as its effects are limited to purely visual changes to the player's screen. Entering mob view in spectator mode in a mob with nausea does not show the distortion effects.
