Lions are neutral mobs that will be added in Minecraft 1.11 and to a future Pocket Edition version.


Lions are found in savannah plains and savannah mountains.


They can exist in a passive, neutral, or hostile state. The cubs are passive; adults are neutral, but they will become hostile if attacked or if you get too close. All adults within a 41×41×21 cuboid will become hostile towards the attacker if a cub is attacked. All adults within a 41×41×21 cuboid will become hostile towards the attacker if a cub is attacked. This also happens in peaceful difficulty and the lions will still chase and attack the player, however their attacks do no damage. An adult will also become hostile towards a player within a 21×21×21 cuboid of the adult if a cub is within a 16×16×8 cuboid of the adult. They can attack not only players, but other mobs that accidentally attack it. They will attack rabbits, pigs, cows, horses, mooshrooms, chickens, and sheep without provocation.

Lions do attack singly or, more effectively, in a pack. Lionesses do the majority of the hunting, males pirate their food from the females. The males only become involved in the hunt when the prey is too large for the lionesses to bring down. Most times, females work alone but with other females so they don't have to take orders for the males. but at times when the females need more help the all go and look for male and one will mate.

Lion cubs can be grown up quickly using any type of meat, similar to wolves.

The adults can get heart particles using meat, but adult lions fed meat do end up actually breeding.

Lions can be led with a lead.

Their swimming speed is faster than the player's, making them difficult to get away from if they are attacking.

Polar bears attack by rearing on their back legs and then mauling down on the attacker with their front paws.

Polar bear cubs' growth can't be sped up.


When killed, a lion has a 3/4 chance to drop 0–2 raw beef, and a 1/4 chance to drop 0–2 yellow wool.


  • In real life, lions hunt way better than wolves do.
