Minecraft Dungeons is not a traditional Minecraft game (i.e. It is not an “edition” of Minecraft).
Instead, Dungeons is a dungeon-crawler game set in the Minecraft universe that features multiple mobs and bosses not found in the original game.
These are the mob additions to Minecraft Dungeons, categorized by behavior:
Passive/Friendly Mobs in Minecraft Dungeons
Passive mobs in Minecraft Dungeons are just like the passive mobs found in the original Minecraft.
They are always harmless and friendly toward players, even when attacked.
These are the passive mobs that have been added to and only appear in Minecraft Dungeons:
- Baby Ghast: a mini version of the Ghast, a classic Minecraft mob
- Key Golem: small, stone-like creature that carries a key players need to unlock doors or gates

Note: Many passive mobs from Minecraft also appear in Minecraft Dungeons, including chickens, cows, wolves, and pigs.

Neutral Mobs in Minecraft Dungeons
Some neutral mobs in Minecraft Dungeons are just like the neutral mobs found in the original Minecraft.
They only attack when provoked.
The other mobs we are considering neutral in Minecraft Dungeons technically DO attack upon sight, but have no power to damage a player.
Instead, these mobs enhance the powers of other mobs or create more mobs to foil the player.
These are the neutral mobs that have been added to and only appear in Minecraft Dungeons:
- Enchanter: mob that casts spells to enhance other mobs, increasing their threat levels
- Mob Spawner: a stationary mob that continually spawns other hostile mobs
- Squall Golem: a golem variant with wind powers that only attacks when activated by a resonance crystal
