Zombies are one of the most iconic mobs in Minecraft. Even some non-Minecraft gamers know about the zombie mobs that spawn in this game.
Zombies are common hostile mobs that spawn during the night and in dark places. Players are not the only targets of these undead mobs. Zombies also hunt down iron golems, villagers, wandering traders, snow golems, and baby turtles. Luckily for players, zombies are not too strong and are easy to fight in Minecraft.
Using mods, players can turn these dull mobs into powerful and scary ones. Mods can change entity behavior and add new gameplay, mobs and blocks. Some zombie mods can bring about a zombie apocalypse or give amazing intelligence to these bloodthirsty mobs.
