Update 0.15.0

Name Tags are Items that were added in Update 0.15.0.

Obtaining

Name Tags cannot be Crafted, and can be obtained by Fishing or through Chests in Generated Structures such as DungeonsAbandoned Mineshafts, etc. And after Update 1.0.4, they can also be Traded for using Emeralds.

Usage

Name Tags can be named by using an Anvil, and can be renamed any number of times. Once named, they can be used on a Mob to give it a name which will appear above it. 

Name Tags can also be Enchanted therefore giving protection or enhancement to the Mob that wears it. 

Trivia

  • If a renamed Mob kills the Player, the death message will display the Mob's custom name.
  • Easter Egg: If a Rabbit is named "Toast", it will change the rabbit's skin. This is a reference to the developer's friend's lost rabbit.
  • Easter Egg: If a Mob is named "Dinnerbone", they will turn upside down. This also works for "Grumm".
  • Easter Egg: If a Sheep is named "jeb_", its wool will go through the color spectrum.
  • Naming a Mob will stop it from despawning.
    • However, if the Mob was Hostile or Neutral (excluding Wolves and Iron Golems), they will despawn if the difficulty was set to Peaceful.
