Rotten flesh is a food item that can be eaten by the player, at the risk of food poisoning.

Obtaining[edit]

Zombies and variants[edit]

Zombies, husks, zombie villagers, zombie horses, and drowned drop from 0 to 2 units of rotten flesh upon death, and zombie pigmen drop 0 to 1 units of rotten flesh. Looting can increase this by one per level, for a maximum of 5 rotten flesh (4 for zombie pigmen).

Fishing[edit]

Rotten flesh can be obtained as a "junk" item while fishing.

Chest loot[edit]

Rotten flesh can be found in 59.6% of small underwater ruins chests and 55.3% of igloo chests in stacks of 1; in 89.3% of village temple chests in stacks of 1–4; in 57.8% of dungeon chests, 59.0% of desert temple chests, and 57.8% of woodland mansion chests, all in stacks of 1–8; in 34.6% of shipwreck supply chests in stacks of 5–24; and in 53.4% of jungle temple chests and 28.7% of desert temple chests in stacks of 3–7.

Gift[edit]

Tamed cats have a 16.13% chance of giving rotten flesh to the player as a gift.

Usage[edit]

Food[edit]

To eat rotten flesh, press and hold use while rotten flesh is selected in the hotbar.

Eating rotten flesh restores 4 () hunger and 0.8 hunger saturation, but has an 80% chance of inflicting food poisoning for 30 seconds.

Rotten flesh can be used to breed and heal tamed wolves, lead them around, and make baby tamed wolves grow up faster by 10% of the remaining time.

Wolves are at no risk of food poisoning.
