This year's Minecraft Mob Vote is just around the corner, giving the Minecraft community a chance to decide which new mob will be added to the game in the highly-anticipated 1.21 update! Mojang has ramped up the excitement for the game’s annual update, revealing details regarding Minecraft Live 2023 in a recent trailer. The Minecraft Live 2023 event will not only provide glimpses of what's on the horizon but will also unveil the eagerly-awaited Mob Vote winner!
Last year's Mob Vote winner was the Sniffer: an ancient mob that was once thought to be extinct. Now, it has been playfully exploring the Overworlds since last summer, unearthing ancient seeds and charming us with its "gentle giant" demeanour. This year, the Mob Vote makes a triumphant return, featuring three new mobs in contention.
If you're eager to help Minecraft developers decide which new mob will be developed and added to the game in the next major update, read on to discover all the details we have about the upcoming Minecraft Mob Vote 2023.
When and how to submit my vote for Minecraft Mob Vote 2023?
You'll have the opportunity to cast your vote for the Minecraft Mob Vote 2023 starting from Friday, 13 October at 1pm EDT/6pm BST until Sunday, 15 October at 1:15pm EDT/6:15pm BST.

All three mobs in Minecraft Mob Vote 2023
This year, there will be three mobs to choose from: the crab, the armadillo, and the penguin.
First up is the crab, a vibrant blue-shelled creature that calls the mangrove swamp biome home. In the official video, Mojang highlights the appeal of the crab's claw, which grants players the ability to place blocks from a greater distance.
Next, we have the armadillo. This endearing animal inhabits the savanna biome and has a tendency to curl into a protective ball when startled. Notably, the armadillo drops a scute, which can be utilised to craft a unique type of armour — wolf armour! This provides added protection for your loyal wolf companion.
Lastly, the final contender is the penguin! You'll find these charming creatures waddling along the stony shores biome. While a bit clumsy on land, the penguin showcases its true prowess as a swift swimmer in the water. This amphibious mob can significantly enhance your boat's speed, making aquatic travel a breeze.
