The penguin: one of the three new mobs that want to join Minecraft!

Mob Vote: Penguin

Cast your vote from October 13

Did you hear a splash? No, I didn’t drop my pen in my coffee again, it’s another new mob that wants to join Minecraft: the penguin

You’ll find the penguin in the stony shores biome, waddling around the beach, or swimming in the nearby ocean. Just like its real-world counterpart, the penguin is a social mob, and it’s amphibious! That means it’s happy both on land and in the water, though it can be a little clumsy when walking. The penguin is a speedy swimmer though, and it has a very special skill – it can help your boat travel faster! Perhaps that would help Tiny Jens, Tiny Vu, and Tiny Agnes reach Minecraft Live in time?

Do you want the penguin to be the next mob to waddle into Minecraft? Then cast your vote! The mob vote opens at 1 pm EDT October 13, and closes at 1:15 pm EDT on October 15. The winner will then be announced during Minecraft Live, which starts at 1 pm EDT on October 15!



This year, you can vote for your favorite new mob within Minecraft! Join the live event server on Minecraft: Bedrock Edition to submit your vote, meet the Tinies, play mini-games, and even indulge in some mob parkour! You can also vote right here on, or via the Minecraft launcher. You only get one vote too – so even if it looks like you pull those in-game server levers multiple times, know that only your final vote will be counted!


To make sure the voting is fair and secure, you will need to sign in with your Microsoft account to cast your vote via the in-game server,, or via the Minecraft Launcher.


Tune into Minecraft Live via our  YouTube channelor right here on October 15, 1pm EDT (or find your timezone here). See you there!
