[UPDATE: Winner] Minecraft Live Mob Vote 2023: New Mobs, How to Vote & More

[UPDATE | October 15, 11:30 AM PST] – The Minecraft Live 2023 event has ended, and we have the results of this year’s Mob Vote. Drum roll, please…the winner of the Minecraft Mob Vote 2023 is Armadillo. Yeah, this cute mob will be added in the next major update, allowing us to better protect our doggos. Minecraft 1.21 update brings some other much-requested changes, so don’t forget to check out these new features via the guide linked below.

October has arrived and with it, a very exciting time for the Minecraft community. Minecraft Live 2023 is scheduled for October 15th, and the initial details for the Minecraft 1.21 update will be revealed. However, one more huge event will occur prior to the event, and that’s the Minecraft Mob Vote 2023. It’s a community-based vote that will allow players to contribute to the game’s future, choosing the new mob to be added to the game. In this article, we share everything you need to know about the upcoming mob candidates, so you have an easy time choosing your favorite one.

Choose the Next New Minecraft 1.21 Mob


The first mob option of the Minecraft Mob Vote 2023 has just been revealed. It’s a crab! In the official showcase video, the crab mob has an unusual vibrant blue shell. Moreover, one of its claws is pretty big compared to the other one. The mob will be the residents of the mangrove swamp biomes and will apparently be able to climb blocks vertically. This is a very cool mechanic that so far only spiders have.

One of the crabs in the video got submerged in the water and it seems like only the giant claw is visible. Maybe it’s that big that completely protects them from getting soaked. Tinies, in the video, mentions that players will love the crab claw because it will enable them to place blocks further away. What does this actually mean though? Will the players be encouraged to kill the crab and obtain its claw? Will it then become a tool of some type? What do you think? Share your thoughts in the comments below!


It’s another day and another mob has been announced for Mob Vote 2023! This time, it’s an armadillo! This cute creature lives in the warm climate of savanna biomes. The most interesting fact about it revealed in the official video is that it drops scutes. Those items will then be used in crafting armor for your tamed wolf.

This simple addition will make the wolves so much tougher and more suitable for larger battles. And if the armor is dyable, like the leather horse armor, your doggos will even look fancy while slaying those dumb zombies!

But will the armadillos drop scutes randomly, when they grow up or perhaps when they’re killed? We don’t know for sure just yet. Though we hope it drops them voluntarily as it would be a crime to kill such a sweet-looking mob! What do you think about the armadillo? Does it seem like it could be the winner? Share your opinion in the comment section below!


The final mob in the Mob Vote 2023 has been announced! Ladies and gentlemen, get ready for the penguin! This cute and super-friendly mob will be seen on the currently, pretty boring, Stony Shore biomes. They would be both land and water mobs, much like axolotls. Even though they’re pretty clumsy on land, penguins will be amazing swimmers.

And they would use their skills to help you out too. So, their ability would be to make your boat travel faster, so you can get to your destination in time. Would that mechanic function similarly to the dolphin’s grace effect or perhaps in a different way? What do you think? Would you like penguins to guide your boat? Tell us and all of our readers in the comment section below!
