Crickets are passive insects which spawn in the plains, forest, savannah, and jungle biomes. Their constant chirps add a nice atmosphere to their respective biomes.


Crickets have 3 hearts and will regularly jump around peacefully. They are unique, as when they stop jumping around, they will make constant chirping noises. However, they are shy and will flee from players, and will also stop chirping when doing so. Once they go far enough, they will revert to their old behavior.


  • Crickets used to chirp at the same pace as any other animal would make their sound, and would make 3 chirps in their sound time, but as of 0.5.6, their sounds were significantly improved to make them more of an ambient mob.
  • Crickets were present in the 1.2.5/1.3.2 versions of the mod as one of the first mobs, and made a return as one of the first mobs in the 0.5.0 version for 1.4.7.
  • When killed, crickets drop an edible cricket leg item.
  • Crickets can become incredibly annoying and spawn in dense groups, leading to potential lag for slower computers.
