I heard a rumor that you can put a saddle on a Ghast and ride it like a pig, is this true?


There's no information on the Minecraft Wiki page about being able to to ride a Ghast.

  • It doesn't look like you're actually in range of that ghast. – SevenSidedDie Apr 30 '11 at 0:17

    So you're riding a Ghast with a saddle in this image? – Kevin Yap Apr 30 '11 at 0:46

    The ghast seems sort of meh about this whole situation – Rapida Apr 30 '11 at 2:19

    @Kevin: He said impossible.... i.e., he isn't. – mpen Apr 30 '11 at 7:33

    Wow, I totally misread that. – Kevin Yap Apr 30 '11 at 15:03

While you can't officially ride a ghast, there are cheaty ways to ride pretty much any creature you wish, and ghasts, thanks to their size will keep the (blatantly visible) cheat obscured. Of course the ghast won't be controllable and will fly wherever it wills, it will also happily attack you in survival mode.

The trick is that any mob can have 'passengers' and any mob can be the passenger. - this allows for spider jockeys, chicken jockeys etc. So you can summon a ghast mounted by a saddled pig. Then you can mount the pig, and you're "riding a ghast":

/summon minecraft:ghast ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:"minecraft:pig",Saddle:1b}]}

You can ride it with single player commands with /saddle. if you jump on it you will fall through.
