A few months ago, Mojang released a new update for Minecraft, called the Nether update. In this update, they added a new mob called the piglin, along with other similar mobs.  Spawning in the Nether, most commonly around Bastions, piglins have 16 health points and will attack if you have opened a Bastion chest or mined a gold block, if you have hit another piglin, or if you don’t have a piece of gold armor. But, on the bright side, if you give them a gold ingot, they will give you something in return. Similar to the piglin are the piglin brutes and zombified piglins. The piglin brutes have 50 health and automatically starts to attack you, even if you give them gold. On the other hand, zombified piglins can spawn naturally in the Nether, or when you bring a piglin into the overworld. These mobs are not aggressive unless you attack them.
