Let us face it the mobs in Minecraft look a bit cute rather than aggressive. This is why a pack maker decided to develop Zinkenite Mobs Resource Pack 1.17.1 and make the monsters a bit more fearsome and ferocious.

The animals however are another story. They look fine the way they are but sometimes we might wish they were a tad more realistic then what they currently look like.


This is the reason why some of the members of the active modding community have created packs which substitute the looks of the creatures default textures and enhanced their visuals.

What is Zinkenite Mobs Resource Pack 1.17.1

This great looking Minecraft resource pack was developed and created by S_B737 who is fairly new to the whole modding community.


However, by the looks of what he has done with this pack it shows he has a bright future ahead. The whole concept of this pack is somewhat appealing and adds value to the game.

It features some nicely generated textures with new features and looks. For example, the creeper now has a ticking TNT on his chest. 

But do know that this pack runs at 256x resolution so it might be a little beefy if your set-up isn't as recent or if you are playing on a slower device.

Is Zinkenite Mobs Worth the Download

This resource packs is very appealing in terms of adding some gameplay value to Minecraft. Zinkenite Mobs truly is worth the download.

You can even enhance the experience even further by using any of the Top Shaders for Minecraft. With a shader used you'd sure have an even better time fighting off these tougher looking mobs.

Overall the mob retextures and redesigns look good. Aside from that it also modifies the animals and the end game bosses. So, you're sure to have a blast.

Since this pack runs at HD resolutions make sure that you have downloaded Optifine already into your game to make this pack compatible with Minecraft.


  • The new mob designs look tougher and more fit to fight
  • Also retextures the animals to a very decent form
  • Retextures the look of the End game bosses such as  the Ender Dragon and the Wither


  • Runs at a high resolution so it might cause your game to get some FPS drops
  • Only modifies mobs, critters, creatures and animals
  • Despite running at a high resolution some mobs are still filled with pixels and don't look smooth
