Piglins MCL

The term piglin refers to a species of hostile mobs from the Nether led by the Great Hog that plan to invade the Overworld and corrupt it, and are the main antagonists of Minecraft Legends.


Piglins are hostile NPC-like mobs that are similar to pigs. Piglins come in different sizes, the bulk of their forces which are runts are small, several others are bigger than runts while their leaders are massive.

Under the leadership of the Great Hog, the piglin society is separated into three different hordes based on their own appearances, units, cultures and strategies for both attack and defense. They are the Horde of the Hunt, the Horde of the Spore and the Horde of the Bastion.
