Nether Magma Cube
Magma Cubes are hostile mobs with dark red and black skin and red, orange and yellow eyes and are only found in The Nether. When attacked, they shape-shift into 2-4 smaller versions of themselves in addition to Experience Orbs, similar to Slimes. When they move, they jump up and momentarily unravel into several layers, giving them the appearance of a spring and revealing a molten lava core inside. When successfully killed, there is a possibility they will drop Magma Cream, which can be used for fire resistance potions.


When killed they drop 0-2 Magma Cream (depending on size).


  • They can't swim so if you can get them to walk into lava they will get stuck.
  • They are abundant in The Nether and are not that hard to kill so they can make a good way to get experience.
  • If a group of large Magma Cubes, it is best to leave them alone.
  • They will always jump in a straight line.
