What began in 2017 as a selection of four mobs has spawned into a yearly tradition that fans adore, but with each winner, the number of losers grows more and more. So that their memories are not forgotten, today we explore all Minecraft mob vote winners and nominees, including the additional cat vote of 2018.

All Minecraft Mob Vote Winners & Nominees

Plenty of mobs have come and gone, but as we have seen with the biome vote, it is possible losers will still be added! Perhaps we will even have a mob vote that includes only the runner-ups one day? Now that would be exciting! Is there a losing mob you hope gets added? Until Next Time, BisectHosting =)
