I've been playing Minecraft a lot, and I wondered what I can do with other mobs if I want to use them somehow.

What are the many helpful uses of all the mobs?

Specialized mob uses for farms:

  • Hoglin: They are unique in that they are hostile mobs, so can spawn much more than passive mobs, while also producing one of the best food sources in the game. Once you setup an extremely minimal hoglin farm on a server, the food produced could feed hundreds of players.

  • Skeleton: Skeletons are automatically attacked by player owned wolves, making fully automatic XP farms possible. Bows may be useful for the annoying crafting of dispensers.

  • Piglins: can be traded with to obtain renewable materials.

  • Zombie Piglins: Due to their aggro mechanic, can also be used to create fully automatic XP farms. Useful for gold farms for piglin bartering.

  • Snow Golem: Leaves trails of snow wherever they go in cold biomes, leading to extremely fast snow farms. Useful for provoking other mobs, as they shoot snowballs towards hostile mobs on their own.

  • Iron Golem: Effective defense, can be used to kill mobs as long as they are protected from getting hurt, and obvious use in iron farms, one of the most useful farms in the game.

  • Witch: Produces many useful drops including gunpowder, glass bottles, redstone, and sugar.
