When eaten, Pufferfish will restore 0.5 Hunger, but also give the player the Hunger I effect for 15 seconds, causing them to lose 3 Hunger Bars (as much as a Golden Carrot or some cooked meats would give them). That's not all, though: It also gives Poison IV for a full minute and Nausea I for 15 seconds, causing the player to remain at 0.5 health for a full 48 seconds unless they eat something immediately afterwards.
Pufferfish can be used like any other fish to tame Ocelots. Just find a space at least 7x7, stay still, wait for the ocelot to "sneak" up to you, and keep right-clicking it. Note that Ocelots only spawn in Jungle Biomes.
When brewed into an Awkward Potion, Pufferfish makes a Potion of Water Breathing. This is the only way to get Water Breathing in legitimate survival mode.
- Pufferfish, Golden Carrots and Spider Eyes are the only brewing ingredients that can be eaten.
- The aforementioned items and Poisonous Potatoes are the only food items that are (can be in the sake of the potato) poisonous.
- This is the only way to legitimately get the Nausea effect in survival mode.
