Sapling inventory
This article is about Pufferfish. For other kinds of fish that can be found in Minecraft, see Fish (Disambiguation).

The Pufferfish is a type of Fish in Minecraft, added in update 1.7. It is easy to catch with a Fishing Rod in large 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 a player Nausea and Hunger III 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.

Brewing

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

Trivia

  • 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 (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/818763-overview%7CTetrodotoxin) in their bodies. Unlike its real-life counterpart, the pufferfish cannot currently be cooked to nullify its poisonous side effects.
  • The pufferfish is the only item in the game that a player can use to obtain the nausea effect.
