In Minecraft, villagers are passive mobs that live in villages. Each villager has a different profession. Villagers breed and interact with each other and the players. Their outfit varies according to their occupation and biome. Villagers can be traded with, using emeralds as currency.

Trading with villagers is one of the fastest ways to gain valuable items in Minecraft. Many YouTubers and streamers use trading to gain valuable items like Ender pearls, food, and more emeralds quickly in speedruns or on the go.
