Guys that photo is Cthulu in a Lovecraft style photo. It's validity I can't confirm. I hope it's real, having Cthulu would be awesome. It might be like a serpent of types. That'd be cool.Oh wait, just saw the Cthulu update thing. Feel dumb now. Jeb didn't post that, checked. It was a joke.
Is this really what he posted? Can I have the link to Jeb's twitter of him posting this?
If the above image is true, then i'm a little let down. I expected it to be a killer shark or even a Kraken.
It won't be a shark because well you know why.
It won't be a kracken because that's like adding a hostile mob of hostile sheep to the stone mountains.
You already have sheep. You want something new.
I big squid is not very creative, and as Krackens are known for their destruction, what would this one destroy? Any and all water-adjacent man-made things unless it's made of that new ocean block or the mob is warded away via Sea Lanturns?
Actually a destro-mob that shys away from sea-lanturns sounds pretty cool.
If it has to do with the dungeon then I'd assume it is no bigger than 2x2, so it won't be a giant squid or anything too crazy. Jellyfish also won't work with this dungeon since they just float around and that would be way too easy. Whatever it is needs to be able to harm you and probably be fairly small to fit in that small dungeon.
It could be a sea urchin, although slightly modified to move around faster. Those are pretty "nasty" and are fairly common as underwater enemies. They would probably be unable to swim and only able to climb on blocks (like spiders but upside down too). You wouldn't really be able to hide from it and in such a small area it would be tough to kill if they move fast enough and can't be knocked back. This also makes them not really hazardous for just swimming in general since they won't be all over the place like squid.
Perhaps when a squid is cruisin at the surface of the water and gets hit by lightning it'll turn into a Kraken? LOL. I can just see a Kracken hunting and eating squid. Would put a little more motion out in the waters.
I'm hoping that it's a jellyfish. Here is what I hope it will be like:
It would basically look like a white squid with a shortened body. It would spawn uncommonly in light levels 9 and below. It would deal 3 hearts of contact damage per hit. It would have 8 hearts. I have multiple ideas for a drop:
1) It could drop jelly, which would be a slime ball substitute, but could not be crafted into blocks.
2) It could drop tentacles, which could be used to make blocks that damage you on contact, weapons, or poison potions.
I highly doubt it's kraken becuase we have 2 super famous mods that bring the kraken and since they already attract a ton of minecrafters I highly doubt jeb will see a need to make a kraken boss/mob into vanilla im kinda agreeing with the sea urchin idea it's unique and I have yet to see a popular mod to have already implimented the idea it will add a ton of uniqueness to our beloved game
