List of tamable mobs in version 1.19 update part 1

Minecraft’s latest “The Wild” update or more simply known as 1.19 came out not too long ago and it featured a lot of new content such as new blocks, mobs, materials and changes to existing mechanics as well as graphic tweaks.

But out of dozens of these mobs and a handful being hostile, only 10 can be tamed so far without the use of mods. And once tamed, these become your allies that help you on your journey to fight and help you repel those that come at night.

Find out which of these are in today’s blog!


Allays are the newest tamable mob when the 1.19 update came out. These adorable flyers are usually found in groups of 3 being held captive in large, dark oak cages around pillager outposts or in jail cells inside woodland mansions.

If you rescue an Allay from their captivity, they will fly around and if you give them an item, it will scour and look around for items of the same type you gave them to pick up and give back to you. This is a very convenient feature because you can also set the Allay to a noteblock so that they will bring the items back to the noteblock instead!

If you see an Allay dancing, try giving it an Amethyst Shard for a surprise!


Cats are one of the passive mobs that can be found in almost every village and inside witch huts. They are somewhat skittish and will try to run away from players so in order to tame them, you must stay still while holding raw cod or salmon and wait for the cat to get to you and when they do, give them the fish. Tamed cats that are given more fish after being tamed will breed. Cats are useful because they keep

Tamed cats that are given more fish after being tamed will breed. Cats are useful because they keep both creepers and phantoms away at night, and even if these hostile mobs are pursuing you, they will stop and avoid you if you get near to your cat!

Creepers and phantoms cannot go near cats within a 6×16 blocks radius making them an indispensable defense against these annoying hostiles.

Horses, Donkeys and Mules

We grouped the three in to one category because they’re quite the similar equine mobs only with the slight exceptions in behavior.

Horses are found in groups of 2-6 in plains, sunflower plains, savannahs and in some villages. Donkeys are found around in groups of 1-3 around meadows, plains and savannahs as well but you cannot see Mules spawn naturally which is interesting. In order to get a Mule, you must breed a horse and donkey together using Golden Apples or Golden Carrots. The resulting offspring is a guaranteed Mule if done correctly.

Mules cannot breed as well so you will have to repeat this cross-breeding process if you need more Mules.

These mobs can be healed with most crops found in the game, preferably wheat and apples. Once tamed or bred, you can put saddles on them to control and mount them. You can also equip the Donkeys and Mules with chests to add more inventory space.

Llamas and Trader Llamas

These adorable neutral mobs can be seen around windswept hills, savannah plateaus, and savannah biomes. They can be tamed by using wheat or hay, and will spit at any mobs that attack them. Funny thing is, they will also spit at wolves without provocation!

Llamas can be bred using hay bales. They can be equipped with carpets of any of the game’s colors, showing a different patterned rug on the llama’s back. And like Donkeys and Mules, they can also be equipped with a chest, allowing for more storage depending on its strength stats

Trader llamas are variants that spawn in groups of two alongside wandering traders. Players can kill the wandering trader, and “steal” this variant, making them automatically tamed if done so.


These capricious mobs are a very rare sighting in jungle biomes. Usually found in groups of one to two at high levels (around 70 or above) and they only spawn on logs, leaves, and grass blocks.

They also have a total of six hp or 3 hearts.

You can tame these by offering any type of seeds, albeit a low success rate of 10%. If successful, they will fly around while following the player. They are also one of the only three, unique tamable animals that cannot breed. Parrots can also perch on your shoulder.

And just like their real-life counterparts, Parrots can perform mimicry abilities. This is useful for warning the players of any potential danger as they will imitate the sound of any mobs around a 20-block radius.

Try playing a music disc as well for a surprise!
