Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If the gamerule mobGriefing is set to false, piglins will not attempt to barter.
  • Neither piglin brutes nor baby piglins can be bartered with.
  • The items given to players can help in surviving/living in the Nether or escaping the Nether.
  • If you give a baby piglin a gold ingot they will not give anything back.
  • Any Gold items (such as Gold Ore, Clock, Gold Armor...) except Gold Ingot given to a Piglin will be examined but will not give anything back.
