What you need to know
- Minecraft Live 2021 brings news, announcements, and reveals to the Minecraft community on Oct. 16, 2021.

- The three mobs featured in this year’s Mob Vote is the glare, the allay, and the copper golem, each of which have unique attributes.
Ahead of Minecraft Live 2021, which officially airs on Oct. 16, 2021, Mojang has begun to tease and reveal the mob options. The first to be announced is the grumpy glare, but the other two will be shown off over the course of the week before Minecraft Live 2021. We’ll be updated this post with the mobs as we learn of them, and the results of the vote during Minecraft Live 2021, so be sure to tune in.
Here are the mobs featured in the Mob Vote at Minecraft Live 2021.
Glares do not spawn hostile mobs, and players can actually take glares with them when they travel. Glares simply get really disgruntled whenever it’s too dark in the immediate area, which is a sure sign there’s danger of spooky mobs spawning there. We don’t know much else about the glare’s other abilities or behaviors, but they certainly look the part!
Allay can pick up nonstackable items like tools and more, can collect items indefinitely, and returns collected items to a point near a note block that it enjoys. Players are already strategizing on how to use allay to make automation of certain tasks easier, even if the allay can only stay within the same chunk that you are in. Ahead of the Mob Vote, the allay appears to be the fan favorite on social media.
Copper golems won’t tamper with any other buttons besides copper ones, which means existing redstone contraptions are safe. Also, they have a lightning rod on their head that can attract lightning, which disperses any oxidation. Players can also use an axe to quell the progress of oxidation, similar to other copper blocks. Copper golems are friendly, and won’t really interact with other players or mobs. Many players are theorizing how copper golems may be used to automate some redstone contraptions.
Update, Oct. 12, 2021 (10:25 a.m. CT) — The ‘allay’ is the second mob featured in the Minecraft Live 2021 Mob Vote
Mojang Studios has now revealed the ‘allay,’ a friendly mob that loves music, and enjoys collecting similar items and dropping them off near music blocks. You can watch the allay’s reveal trailer for the Mob Vote up above, and learn a little bit more about what makes this particular mob special.
Update, Oct. 13, 2021 (10:15 a.m. CT) — The ‘copper golem’ is the final mob featured in the Minecraft Live 2021 Mob Vote
The third and final mob in this year’s Mob Vote is the ‘copper golem,’ another friendly mob that is actually crafted by players out of pure copper. These energetic friends oxidize over time, love pushing the brand-new copper buttons, and in general are a lot of fun to have around.
Update, Oct. 16, 2021 (9:30 a.m. CT) — Players are discussing every mob on social media ahead of the Mob Vote
On social media, especially Twitter, thousands of players are flocking to discuss every mob ahead of the Minecraft Live 2021 Mob Vote. Many players have already seemingly decided which mob they plan to vote for, with the allay, especially, seemingly building up a lot of attraction (at least, on Twitter). We’ve updated the above post with additional information on each mob to help you make an informed decision before voting.
Update, Oct. 16, 2021 (11:45 a.m. CT) — The first round of voting between the glare, allay, and copper golem has begun
The first round of voting in the Minecraft Live 2021 Mob Vote has officially begun on Twitter, and is being held between the glare, allay, and copper golem. The mob that receives the least number of votes in round one will be disqualified from the Mob Vote, while the two remaining winners will move on to a second round of voting later during the show. You’ll need a Twitter account to vote, and you can do exactly that above!
Update, Oct. 16, 2021 (12:05 p.m. CT) — The second (and final) round of voting is between the allay and copper golem
With the glare knocked out in the first round of voting, the second part of the Minecraft Live 2021 Mob Vote is between the allay and the copper golem. The round of voting is now live, and you can vote right now directly above. Whichever mob wins this vote will win overall, and will be added to Minecraft in a future update.
