Ravagers are a rare Minecraft mob that only spawn as part of raids. They are classified as bovine, which means they are part cow. They also have a Villager-esque face, which makes them interesting looking to say the least.

Ravagers are extremely dangerous, and should not be underestimated due to their weird face. They will quickly ravage players and can kill them singlehandidly. Players will need to plan on how to deal with Ravagers during raids.

As stated above, Ravagers will only spawn as part of a village raid.

More specifically, they will spawn in waves three, five, and seven. In waves five and seven, a Ravager will spawn with a Vindicator (wave five) and an Evoker riding it. (wave seven)

This combination of mobs is extremely dangerous, as the Vindicators will disable the player's shield, which is their only real defense.

Ravagers will only target specific mobs, such as players, Villagers, Wandering Traders, (Java Edition only) and Iron Golems.

While attacking, they will open their mouths and chomp on their victims, dealing massive damage and knocking the enemy back five blocks. They will kill a Villager in two hits, however, Iron Golems will make quick work of them in a one-on-one scenario.

If defended against with a shield, Ravagers have a 50% chance to be stunned and emit a roar that does massive damage and knockback.

Ravagers will also break certain blocks when moving through them, such as leaves and crops. They will also drop a Saddle upon death, which can be extremely useful to some players.
