Now, with quite a few ways to get around, MC offers one many different choices for travelling in style: by riding a horse, donning an elytra, chucking an Enderpearl, or by launching yourself with a TNT cannon (okay, maybe not). Now, what would be the most stylish way for one to get around? The answer, obviously, would be by riding a flying squid! Okay, maybe that isn't exactly what you had in mind... but it's still a lot of fun! :D

Step 1) Summon a squid with the following command:

/summon Squid ~ ~ ~ {Invulnerable:1}

Then, name the squid. (use whatever name you want)

Step 2) Get yourself a pig, then equip it with a saddle and give it the invisibility effect:

/effect @e[type=Pig] invisibility 9999 1 true

Then, type in this command:

/entitydata @e[type=Pig] {Invulnerable:1}

Then, give the pig a name with a name tag.

Step 3) Now, get yourself a repeating command block, and type this in:

/tp @e[type=Pig,name=!Name] @e[type=Squid,name=!Name]

Then, activate it!

You should now see a saddle on top of the squid. Awesome, right?

*NOTE* The exclamation mark is needed in front of whatever name you've chosen for the mob.

Step 4) Now, get yourself a bat by typing in this command:

/summon Bat ~ ~ ~ {Invulnerable:1,NoAI:1}

Then, give it the invisibility effect, and name it.

Step 5) Now, place another repeating command block, and type this in:

/tp @e[type=Squid,name=!Name] @e[type=Bat,name=!Name]

Then, activate it. The squid should immediately be teleported into the bat.

Step 6) Right click the squid to ride on it, then type in this command to start flying:

/entitydata @e[type=Bat,r=2] {NoAI:0}

Tah-dah! You've created your very own flying squid steed! To stop flying, type in this command (assuming you're still riding on it):

/entitydata @e[type=Bat,r=3] {NoAI:1}

The logic behind the build: when given the invisibility effect, the saddle on a pig can still be seen. By teleporting a saddled pig continuously into a squid and the squid into a bat, the invisible pig and the squid are pulled along by the bat as it flies around.
