A piranha swimming in the jungle.

Piranhas are hostile water mobs that spawn in jungle and river biomes. Like anglers, they are voracious eaters, but they usually attack in groups.


Piranhas have 3 hearts, and will regularly swim around. Whenever a player or a mob is in their range, they will attack it and do 2 hearts of damage. While usually weak, they are dangerous in groups.



  • Piranhas were added in version 1.2, along with sharks.
  • Like anglers, piranhas have a jaw animation and a tail animation.
  • Piranhas drop nothing, and are best avoided.
