0-2 Raw Porkchops, 0-2 Cooked Porkchops (if it died on fire)

First Appearance

Update 0.2.0

A Pig is a Passive Mob that was added in Update 0.2.0, and is in all versions of Minecraft. When killed, it drops 0-3 Raw Porkchops.


Pigs spawn on Grass Blocks at Light Level 9 or above. Herds of Pigs spawn upon world generation.


Pigs wander aimlessly around the Overworld, oinking occasionally, avoiding falling off cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and will usually stay out of water. When struck by lightning, they will turn into Zombie Pigmen, unless the Difficulty level is at peaceful, in which case the Pig will disappear.


Pigs are attracted towards the Player if he/she is holding a Carrot, Potato, or Beetroot and if he/she feeds an adult Pig, it will enter Love Mode. If the Player does the same to another Pig nearby, the two pigs will Breed. Once a Pig has been bred, it cannot enter Love Mode again for 5 minutes.


Pigs can be ridden by placing a Saddle on them. After Update 0.15.0, they can also be steered using a Carrot on a Stick.


  • Pigs will drop Cooked Porkchops if killed while on Fire, with a weapon Enchanted with the Fire Aspect Enchantment, or if they run through Lava.
    • Like Cows, Chickens and Sheep, they will drop the cooked version of their respective raw meat drops.
  • Pigs did not spawn in Creative Mode naturally until Update 0.9.0.
  • If a Pig is struck by Lightning while the Player is riding it, the Pig will turn into a Zombie Pigman and the Player will be thrown away from the Pig.
