I feel Mojang have lost the plot a little now. I've never thought they should add a way to traverse the lava (Let alone gold ore in the nether), so I'm tend not to agree with it. I blame those crying for netherite boats or boats made out of the fungus wood, so I hope they're happy now.

I think it's pretty cute, the only thing I don't like that much is the expression, he looks really sad, that's why I wanna make a texture pack where he's smiling

I think it's cute, but did we really need another mob? Like, goodness, we already have so much mobs to play with, and if we want more mobs, we can just use mods. Plus, it's more work for people who make their own resource packs, and in turn, we can't seem to keep up with all the new things to texture.

I like the concept of it—a living obsidian/lava boat that we can use to traverse the game's huge lava lakes. However, the design could be improved or tweaked a little more. I don't know what it is, but it just seems off; perhaps it's the resolution of the mob? Xisuma mentioned it in his snapshots update video, and I kinda agree with him. That is not to say that I don't like the design though; I'm just saying there's a lot of room for improvement.

I actually really like it. It's goofy, unique, and useful. However, I think the legs should be longer, because when I hear "strider" I think of something with long legs that has long strides, not a frowning cube with stubby legs.

Finally, I can cross the lava by riding my old physics teacher.


Oh, dear lord, that came out wrong!


Yeah, the texture looks off due to its higher resolution, but I like the idea.



In my mind, the legs are non-flammable and just extend down whenever it walks on lava, keeping the actual creature safe. It's just that the model doesn't show that.

If we look at the nether's properties, especially the implied heat, this thing makes sense when thinking about what a native nether creature might look like (as opposed to a pig- or slime-based one). Remember that the Blaze is also extremely odd. These are pretty much what I'd imagine silicon-based life to be like, which makes sense in a place filled with lava and extreme heat.

I get that Minecraft originally had Creepers and that Mojang is attempting to add other oddball looking mobs with strange features. BUT the Creeper was an oopsie-pig programmer art, and it can stay, but they really do not need to continue adding more mobs that look like they were spawned straight out of oblivion by accident. 😭

With the strider, I like the concept but I dislike the design. Already seen a cute texture for it pop up though and I am pretty sure something cute can be done with the model. 👍

I can get where people are coming from saying that it doesn't match the look and feel of MC. Something about the level of detail actually reminds me a bit of the old human mob in a way, but overall i don't mind it.

I love it a lot, I think that the textures are off tho. It looks 32x32, so they should either make the mob 2x bigger, or change the texture to fit the other mobs.

1. It would look soooo much better without that hairs. it makes it look like a 90-yo grandma

2. they should look similar to magma cubes.

3. they should atleast swim in the lava. you cant stand on a liquid.

They don't go in the lava so they aren't scorched.

Reasons I don't like the Strider:
  • It doesn't match the feel of minecraft.
  • If it lives around/on lava shouldn't it's texture look more lava/magma like?
  • Why does it have the haircut of an elderly drunk hipster?
  • It's texture is a bit too textured for a creature of it's size.
  • How does one walk on lava?
  • I think the game devs took a looked at other fiction based games with a hell theme & tried to add a bit of that to the nether.
  • Honestly it just looks strange, change my mind.

I don't overly love it's design either, but here are my responses in order.
  • The feel of Minecraft is fluid and easily changed. I'm really not too sure why that's an issue.
  • Not every nether mob needs to be fire/lava based.
  • I don't know. as we've agreed, the skin is a little weird.
  • Do you mean too high-res?
  • Buoyancy. The strider is probably very light, I'd estimate 30-60 lbs.
  • Big deal. It's definitely more original a concept than some mc mobs. just saying.
  • Texture packs exist.
I'm not trying to be harsh here, but I also don't think the strider deserves hate. If you take "professional" opinions, plenty of YouTubers like the strider despite its admittedly odd looks. I agree with Systemzee in that it's better than the concept of nether boats. and at the end of the day, this may be a testing version of the strider. It may be changed significantly in future snapshots, as was the phantom. Anyway, those are just my thoughts.

I totally understand this. This is basically why I don't like the Strider.
I also just realized why it probably doesn't look lava/magma like. Doesn't their feet kind of look like Basalt or Netherite boots? Either one. But it still doesn't explain how they can walk through lava if it's pouring on top of them

That is a very interesting idea, but keep in mind that lava is much thicker than water. Any creature that moved on top of lava should probably be somewhat slow.

thats why im thinking crimson and warped boats, they still work but they move you really slow in the lava. And it just finishes the wood set too

Nah, too cheap, and Netherite boats would be too expensive. I think striders are a good compromise.

I don't personally condone most of the (less than useful) mobs that Mojang has added over the past several updates, with the exception of guardians and maaaybe phantoms (they amuse me). This new mob is more useful than the others, but seeing as that is not very hard to surpass, I would say that Mojang is still severely lacking in update material that is actually useful to me in Minecraft day to day life. I've been disappointed in them for a while (ever since they were bought by Microsoft pretty much) and I don't think that's changing anytime soon.
