Type

Negative

Hunger is a status effect which causes the hunger bar to deplete faster than normal.

Effect[]

Hunger increases food exhaustion by 0.005 × level per game tick (removes 1 (🍗) saturation point every (40 ÷ level) seconds). It also turns the hunger bar a yellow-green color(🍗). Negative levels decrease food exhaustion, although they do not increase saturation or the hunger bar.

The status effect does not decrease hunger level on Peaceful mode, although it does re-color the hunger bar.

An example of how eating rotten flesh can cause the hunger status effect.

Hunger inflicted by eating rotten flesh, raw chicken or by being attacked by a husk adds 3.0 to the player's exhaustion level over the course of 30 seconds, draining 3/4 of a saturation point. When a pufferfish is eaten, 4.5 exhaustion points are added over the course of 15 seconds, draining 1 (🍗) and 18 (0.125) saturation points.
