Zombified Piglin Jockeys are very rare, neutral mobs that have a 5% chance of spawning through a spawn egg, or by naturally spawning in the Nether. The chance decreases to 0.26% if any of the 3 spawning methods occur in a chicken-free environment.


Zombified Piglin jockeys are unique in terms of its attacking methods. If a player attacks one, it will not give pursuit. However, it will hit its attacker if they get too close to it. This makes it very easy to kill by almost any means. It is recommended to: equip a sword, keep some distance between a player and the piglin jockey, and hit the baby zombified piglin until it dies. However, due to the fact that the chicken can wander off in any direction it wants to, the chicken may go towards a player, thus giving the piglin jockey a chance to kill a player. However, the chance of that happening is infrequent, and it can be prevented by using a bow or crossbow. Snowballs may also be effective in knocking the jockey away from the player, though keep note that snowballs do not deal damage.


Zombified Piglin jockeys drop: 0-1 rotten flesh, 0-1 gold nuggets, and a golden sword, on the baby zombified piglin's part. They can also drop 1 raw chicken (1 cooked chicken if the chicken itself is killed while on fire) and 0-2 feathers, on the chicken's part. Since baby zombified piglin have a 5% chance of mounting a nearby chicken, they can also drop the weapons or armor the baby zombified piglin had before riding the chicken. However, since chickens cannot spawn by themselves in the Nether, a player will need to get a chicken spawn egg or kill a baby zombified piglin that is riding on a chicken in order for this to happen.


  • This is the only jockey that is completely neutral.
  • The Wither can harm the baby zombified piglin even though it is an undead mob; this is due to the chicken not being an undead mob.
  • The zombified piglin jockey mob gives chickens the ability to spawn in the Nether, but only as a part of the jockey.
  • This jockey and wither skeleton jockeys are the only jockeys that can naturally spawn in the Nether.
