Crazy warthog creature

See this mod on YouTube: 

This is a mod for those who crave combat and adventure! Lycanites Mobs adds over 100 new mobs into the game, that’s right, over 100! However, this means that some get overshadowed by others, and it’s hard to keep track of so many. Especially since all of them are hostile, but it’s still an expansive mod with tons of content regardless!
With tons of crazy and frightening mobs, this mod made my Minecraft experience a lot more fun and challenging!

4. Primitive Mobs

The rare treasure slime

See this mod on YouTube:

While lots of mods focus on adding real life animals or crazy fantastical monsters, Primitive Mobs has a different goal. Primitive Mobs adds 25 new mobs into the game that all aim to capture the classic Minecraft feel, not too overbearing, but also not too underwhelming. All of the mobs are unique in their own way, so I highly suggest that you check this one out!
While going for that original Minecraft feel, Primitive Mobs succeeds for sure, bringing lots of new fun along with it!

  • Spider families bring a more scary feeling along with them, getting attacked by groups of spiders is just gross!
  • Treasure Slimes carry around items inside them, making for a cool way to acquire rare gear for yourself!
  • With multiple kinds of Creepers that have different explosions, always make sure to watch your back when roaming the world at night!
