[view][talk] Pigs are passive animal mobs that spawn in grassy areas of the Overworld.

Overview

Pigs have a height of 1.1875 blocks, a length of 1.25 blocks, and a width of 0.625 blocks. Hitting a pig will cause it to flee for a short while. It will eventually calm down.

Farming

Pigs are good for gathering porkchops. First, the Player should make a fenced-in area, 4 blocks wide and 1 block deep, with a fence gate, then lure a pig into the farm with carrots. After getting at least two, breed them as often as possible, by right-clicking on them with carrots or wheat in your hand, and kill one every time there are three or more than 4 adults.

Riding

Main article: Saddle

For one to ride a pig, one must first find a Saddle in a Dungeon, Desert Temple, or Jungle Temple, as they are not craftable. A saddle can be placed on the pig by left-clicking the pig (in PC version), while the saddle is held in hand. The pig will then be wearing an orange saddle, and can be mounted. A player cannot control the pig's movement unless they use a Carrot on a Stick, holding it in the direction they want the pig to walk. A mounted pig can be told to sprint by right-clicking.

A saddle can only be removed by killing the pig.

to enter love mode. When two pigs are in love mode within 16 blocks of each other, they make a baby pig. It takes one full Minecraft day (or 20 minutes) for the piglet to grow into an adult Pig.

​Trivia

  • Because a pig can be saddled, it has two texture files: one with a saddle and one without.
  • The hostile Creeper mob was accidently created when trying to create a pig model. Notch had made it taller, rather than longer, and swapped the color from pink to green.
  • As of 1.2.3, adult Pigs no longer follow piglets.
  • The pig has 2 related humanoid mobs: Pigmen and Zombie Pigmen
  • As of 1.2.4., saddles can no longer be put on piglets.
  • Like Sheep, Squids, Iron Golems and Cows, Pigs are wall-eyed.
  • Piglets, like all baby animals, make a higher-pitched noise than the adult.
  • Pigs didn't always have a protruding snout, this was added in 1.8 - The Bountiful Update.
  • If a player rides a pig and then falls off a cliff and the pig takes more than 4 HP fall damage, the Player will get the achievement "When Pigs Fly".
  • Pigs used to drop only 0-2 Raw Porkchops upon death, but it was eventually raised to 1-3 porkchops upon death.
  • Pigs make an "oink" sound when they walk around.
  • As of Beta 1.5, a Pig will morph into a zombie pigman if struck by Lightning.
  • When killed with Fire, an adult pig will drop 1-3 cooked porkchops.
