Pufferfish old

The original Pufferfish texture

The Pufferfish is a Fish in Minecraft, added in Update 1.7. It is easy to catch with a Fishing Rod in larger bodies of Water, can be obtained in Creative mode and can be obtained from Guardians and Elder Guardians.

When eaten, the pufferfish replenishes half a Hunger point. However, it will give the player nausea and hunger for 15 seconds, as well as Poison IV for 1 full minute. As consuming pufferfish evidently brings more harm than good, it is not an optimal source of Food.


Pufferfish can be used to make the Water Breathing Potion, which grants the player the ability to breathe underwater for a limited time.


Brewing tree (Discludes Water Breathing Potion)


  • The pufferfish is the only type of fish that can not be used to tame Ocelots.
  • The poisonous effect inflicted by eating the pufferfish is based on the fact that real pufferfish contain the deadly neurotoxin Tetrodotoxin in their bodies.
