** Ghasts. They only appear in the Nether but they will make your time there constantly dangerous. They can fly and will usually float out of range of your swords, usually making them only vulnerable to arrows. They also constantly shoot fireballs at extremely long range that explode on contact, causing major damage unless you are wearing armor, as well as leaving holes and fires in the netherrack. Also, they don't follow you, so you can't lure them into traps, and will just keep shooting at you.

** Ghasts.Ghasts tend to repeatedly cross the line between DemonicSpiders and GoddamnedBats, depending on your experience, but for less experienced players they certainly fall into the former. They only appear in the Nether but they will make your time there constantly dangerous. They can fly and will usually float out of range of your swords, usually making them only vulnerable to arrows. They also constantly shoot fireballs at extremely long range that explode on contact, causing major damage unless you are wearing armor, as well as leaving holes and fires in the netherrack.

** Ghasts. They aren't a huge threat, but the fact that they fly out of range of your conventional weapons means they take a long time to kill, and they blow huge holes in the environment and set it on fire, making the Nether even more of a pain to navigate. You know it's bad when there's a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqELqRCnW6g song about how they ruin trips to the nether]].

** Vindicators. [[LightningBruiser They're fast enough to close the distance between you after an unenchanted hit before you can hit again and can kill an iron-armored player in two or three hits.]]

** Vindicators. [[LightningBruiser They're fast enough to close the distance between you after an unenchanted hit before you can hit again and can kill an iron-armored player in two or three hits.]]]] Thankfully they only live in Woodland Mansions, an exceedingly rare structure you will probably never see in a casual playthrough, and they do not respawn once you have killed them.

** Wither Skeletons are practically an uber-zombie. They come with swords and can keep pace with the player at walking speed, in addition to having high health and attack. But their real danger comes from their special "Wither" effect, which is like poison but [[OhCrap can actually kill you]], though it mercifully wears off faster. And you have to make a living hunting these things to obtain Wither Skeleton Heads, the only way to summon [[BonusBoss the Wither]]... but those items drop at an incredibly low rate even with maximum Looting enchantments. Which means you'll have to deal with a lot of them.

** There is a bug that causes water and lava flow to transform redstone wire into obsidian blocks. The practical upshot is that you only need one lava source block (which cannot be replenished like water can) to create as much obsidian as you need, versus the traditional method of permanently turning the few lava source blocks you'll find into obsidian. There is still a resource cost in the form of redstone dust which is semi-finite, but is far more abundant than lava (a single block of redstone ore yields 4-5 redstone dust, each of which can be converted into obsidian, and it's easy to find enough redstone ore to make hundreds of blocks of obsidian rather than a few dozen which you would get from converting the few lava source blocks that you'd find.).
** The first 1.10 snapshot brought about some nice things, but perhaps one of the best things seen was [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dENNRBepWro Savanna villages spontaneously combusting]].[[labelnote:explanation]]This is due to the fact that the Blacksmith building spawns entirely made of Acacia wood logs, [[WhatAnIdiot including the lava tank.]] As a result, not only does that building catch fire almost instantly, but once one wall of the tank is burned away the lava flows down to burn the rest of the village. To avoid this, future builds have the Blacksmith building ''always'' made of cobblestone regardless of what biome it's in.[[/labelnote]]

There is still a resource cost in the form of redstone dust which is semi-finite, but is far more abundant than lava (a single block of redstone ore yields 4-5 redstone dust, which can be increased to up to 8 with Fortune III, each of which can be converted into obsidian, and it's easy to find enough redstone ore to make hundreds of blocks of obsidian rather than a few dozen which you would get from converting the few lava source blocks that you'd find.). \n Plus, redstone is a level 2 trade from a Cleric villager; you can get 1-4 redstone dust for a single emerald, so if you can grow enough Farmer villager trading fodder to get a steady supply of emeralds, you can get pretty much an infinite amount of redstone to use for this bug.

** If you put a Nether Brick fence between two wooden fences, it won't connect to them, but mobs still can't get around them[[note]]Apart from baby bunnies, so be careful if you're breeding them.[[/note]] This makes them a more convenient alternative to fence gates for farms/ranches since you can go in and out of them with ease without worrying about accidentally letting out any of your livestock.
