Mojang, creators of the world-renowned game Minecraft, blew the trumpet to commence the annual joust in the game arena: the 2023 mob vote. Our contenders this year: the audacious Armadillo, the corporal Crab, and the peppy Penguin. But however evenly balanced this melee may sound, the prospect of kitting out your canine in couture has swung the scales towards the Armadillo.
Each year, Mojang puts on a unique twist on Election Day woes by letting Minecraft enthusiasts cast their votes for the next blocky beast to enter the game. Despite calls for “why not all?” from the game's loyal followers, Mojang’s stuck to its guns on this democratic demand.
In the arena this year, we have a classy trio of real-world creatures: Crabs, the bodybuilders of the beach; Armadillos, known for their ‘The-Zorro-of-the-desert’ vibe; and the Penguins, the slip-sliding snow nuzzlers.
The Armadillo, though, has gained the upper hand by offering an unseen perk. Enter the unique armadillo scute, a bony plate that could bring you closer to your dream of having a canine companion clad in stylish armor. Once the crowd got wind of this prized commodity, they invested their loyalty with the Armadillo, causing a chaotic clatter of crab and penguin fans.
Of course, the adorableness of crabs and the suaveness of penguins have them retaining substantial backing. But when armadillos throw in bonuses that can benefit your beloved wolf pets, well, that's some serious 'appeelio'.
Game buffs are now in a state of perplexity - can the penguin's boost to boat speed compete with the allure of the armadillo's canine armor? Could the crab's bonus of extended building range prompt enough blockheads to choose them over a wolf outfitted in ardent shells?
With the broadcast of Minecraft Live on October 15th, the world is a buzz. The voting lines open on October 13th, with the crowning of the mob king happening live on the 15th.
Meanwhile fidgety fans can know more about the crab, armadillo, and penguin options through the links shared by the developers.

With all the excitement, even the spectators are splitting pixels over their favorite bet.
So swing those pickaxes, saddle up those horses and prepare: It’s not just the mobs that are going to war, so is the entire Minecraft community.
