Gorilla & Silverback Gorilla

Gorilla (transparent)


Gorillas have black hair covering their bodies, with black skin on their faces and chests. Silverbacks (males) have Gary coloration on their behinds.


Gorillas spawn in Jungle biomes, where they munch on leaves and bananas. Young gorillas cling to their mother's backs, and may cause them to spin. When provoked, the Silverback of the group will be the first to engage any attacker.


Gorillas are easily tamed with Bananas obtained by breaking jungle leaves. Any mobs targeted by you or that target you will receive a beating by the gorillas.
They can be ordered to sit or stay by right-clicking, but they cannot follow.


  • Sometimes, male Gorillas beat their chests.
  • Naming a Gorilla "Donkey kong"\"DK" or "Harambe" or "Funky Kong" via name tag will change its skin.
