The Magma Cube is a hostile creature that inhabits the Nether dimension. Its body is formed by a cube, which expands like an accordion to be able to jump and move by jumping. Its body is brown, black and red, while its eyes combine yellow and red.
Originally the Magma Cube was the same size as a Slime, but over time the variable size was implemented for these creatures. Although both creatures move by jumping, Magma Cube also have a sound of their own.
Magma Cubes roam the Nether dimension, expanding and contracting their body to jump. When chasing a player they jump more often and move faster than normal. Their player detection range is within 16 blocks around them.
Like the Slimes, when a player kills a Magma Cube, it splits into 2, 3 or 4 small magma cubes, which will also try to attack the player. Their attack consists of jumping and landing on the players.
Magma Cube can only be generated in the Nether dimension. They can be generated anywhere in this dimension, regardless of the level of ambient light, although they are more likely to be generated in the Nether’s fortresses.
When the right characteristics are present for a Magma Cube to be generated, they will be generated individually or in groups of two, three or four entities.
