First Appearance

Update 0.9.0

Silverfish are Hostile Mobs that were added in Update 0.9.0.

Spawning

Silverfish spawn exclusively in Strongholds and Extreme Hills Biomes inside of Monster Eggs.

Behavior

When idle, Silverfish enter nearby Stone-related Blocks, turning them into Monster Eggs. When attacked and not killed, they also summon all Silverfish in a 21×11×21 area around them.

Combat

Silverfish can easily be killed using a Sword since they only have a melee attack. However, when attacked, all other Silverfish in the vicinity also attack the Player. Therefore, the Player should attempt to kill them in 1 hit so as to not awaken nearby Silverfish. This is possible by using a Diamond Sword or TNT.

Trivia

  • Silverfish are currently the smallest Mob in Minecraft Pocket Edition.
  • Silverfish are the first biome-exclusive Hostile Mobs.
  • Silverfish take damage when walking on Soul Sand because they sink into it due to their small size.
  • When the difficulty is set to Peaceful, breaking a Monster Egg will spawn a Silverfish that flashes and de-spawns instantly.
  • One Silverfish Spawner can be found in the Portal Room of a Stronghold.
    • It is present on the stairs leading to the End Portal.
