Name

pufferfish

A pufferfish is a poisonous type of fish that is used to brew water breathing potions.

Obtaining[edit]

Fishing[edit]

Pufferfish can be obtained through fishing. The pufferfish catch rate can be increased by Lure, which reduces wait time generally.

In Bedrock Edition, pufferfish can be caught only when fishing outside jungle biomes and its variants.

Mob drops[edit]

Guardians and elder guardians[edit]

Guardians and elder guardians have a 2.5% chance of dropping a random fish upon death. This has a 13% chance of being pufferfish (0.325% chance of dropping a pufferfish). The chance of getting a fish can be increased by 1% per level of looting, but the type of fish is not affected.

Fish[edit]

Pufferfish always drop 1 pufferfish in its item form when killed.

Usage[edit]

Food[edit]

Pufferfish restores 1 () and 0.2 saturation, but inflicts Hunger III for 15 seconds, Poison IV for 1 minute, and Nausea II for 15 seconds. Unlike rotten flesh, it is not helpful to eat pufferfish while starving because they inflict more health damage than they earn.

Cats[edit]

Pufferfish can be used to get cats off of chests, beds, etc., breed cats, make baby cats grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time. In Java Edition, they can also be used to gain an ocelot's trust.

Brewing ingredient[edit]

Trading[edit]

Wolves[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, pufferfish can be used to feed a wolf, healing it by 1♥, but only when the wolf is not at full health. Unlike other wolf food, pufferfish cannot be used to speed up the growth of baby wolves, and cannot be used to breed them.

Trivia[edit]

  • 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. Tetrodotoxin leads to quick death through respiratory paralysis. Muscle tissue and blood contain trace amounts. In East Asia, pufferfish are considered a delicacy known as fugu, as small parts of the fish are actually edible. Any chef preparing fugu must have special licensing/certification to prepare this dish.
