What are all the projectiles? Things like fireworks and potions and anything at all that have a consistent direction or is a parabola count too. This is my current list of projectiles:

  • All types of Arrows (arrows, spectral arrows, tipped arrows)
  • Ender Pearl
  • Potion (all types)
  • Eggs and Snowballs
  • Trident
  • Fireworks (all types)
  • Fireballs (Blaze, Ghast, and Ender Dragon)
  • Wither Skull (from wither attack)
  • Llama Spit

Did I miss anything obvious? This doesn't seem correct...

  • The hook of a fishing rod?

  • fireworks, fireballs and wither skulls move in a straight line, not parabola. Not sure about llama spit.

Nearly all entities can be moved in a straight line, just not very far. Dropping an object, shooting it from a dispenser, or bouncing it off a slime block will move the entity a very short distance (often less than one block) in a straight line.

Other entities that move in larger parabolas would include a fishing rod hook or TNT launched from a TNT cannon.

Most mobs can be moved by explosions, which throws them from the blast in a parabolic line outwards

Falling sand, gravel, or anvils also fall in a straight line directly downwards
