Trivia

  • The potion of healing harms undead mobs (this includes mobs like Zombies, Skeletons, and the Wither) and the potion of harming heals those mobs.
  • The idea of sugar being used to make potions of swiftness may be based on the theory of some sugar making people hyperactive.
  • The idea of golden carrots being used to make Night Vision potions may be based on the theory that carrots help you see better.
