Minions are yellow, small, cylindrical creatures which are most known for their appearance in the Minions movie. This addon adds them to Minecraft PE. They are very cute and can be used for multiple things. For example, you can tame them, have them fight for you or you can send them away on missions such as hunting or to go fishing.
Minions can be found spawning in the Nether (because they replace zombie pigmen). You can also spawn them using the zombie pigman spawn egg.
To tame a minion you will first need to find a big one. Then feed it some bananas (carrots) until it likes you. Tame chance: 33%. If you find a baby minion you can feed it some bananas too to accelerate its growing process.
- iOS / Android: Long press on the minion with a banana (carrot) and press Tame
- Windows 10: Right-click on a minion with a banana (carrot)
A tamed minion will by default follow its master. You can command it to sit/stand (similar to a wolf) or even tie it to a fence post if you get tired of it.
You can give a tamed minion a couple of different jobs by giving it any of the following tools.
- Sword = Hunt animals
- Axe = Chop down trees
- Pickaxe = Mine
- Hoe = Harvest
- Shovel = Dig
- Fishing rod = Fishing
One minute after you’ve given it a mission it will return to you. You can then press on the button to retrieve the items which it collected. In this case, I had asked it go fishing, so it dropped some fish.
Minions are no cowards. If you get attacked by a mob your tamed minion will be quick to help you. And it will also attack anything which you attack.
The crops textures for carrots have been replaced by banana crops.
