Morph Mod

The Morph Mod allows you to take on the shape and abilities of various mobs throughout the game. Once you kill a mob you’ll absorb its “essence” and instantly become it! You can become any other mob in the game and it also supports mobs added by other mods so you can become pretty much anything you want!


Once you’ve killed a mob and it’s been absorbed by you, you’ll need to trigger the morph and choose which entity you want to become. The default keys are the left ( [ ) or right ( ] ) brackets. This will bring up a scrollable menu on the left side of your screen. You can either scroll with the mouse wheel or cycle up and down with either bracket key. Then you hit enter and you’ll start to transform into whatever you choose!

The more entities you absorb the more will be available to choose from the menu.

There are some benefits to each entity that varies depending on which you choose. Most of the standard animals won’t do too much other than great disguises and the overall fun of being whatever animal you want to be!

But some animals have special abilities that you will be able to take advantage of once you’ve transformed. Being a chicken, for example, will allow you to float gently to the ground instead of to your death. You won’t be able to fly naturally outside of creative mode but it’s still a handy trait to take advantage of.


You can also morph into enemy mobs, which carry some better benefits but also some downsides. These are hostile mob types and there are some config options to play with if you want to change the way other hostile mobs behave around you. By default you’ll still be noticed and attacked by other hostile mobs but in the config menu you can set different modes from 0-5. If you set it to 1 then you’ll be treated like any other hostile mob and won’t be attacked right away. The other options can be set so only the same mobs as you won’t attack or won’t attack unless attacked first. You can even set simply the distance a hostile mob needs to be from you to notice you aren’t one of them.

But above all, if the mob you choose will burn in the daylight then so will you if you are morphed as one and the sun comes up.


And if you want to be an Enderman, you’ll have some extra hearts of health but steer clear of the water since they tend to be a bit sensitive.


Morphing into a spider will let you walk around at a much lower height and you can scale walls! Just walking up to any wall will instantly allow you to start climbing just like every block is a ladder.


If you morph into a squid you get the ability of underwater sight, underwater breathing, and you’ll be able to swim so much faster than normal.

Ghasts and any mob from the Nether will give you fire immunity, which would come in handy especially while roaming the lava oceans of the underworld. Ghasts also have the ability to fly so you can torment villagers like you always dreamed of!

You’ll see tiny icons next to each entity and that will tell you what abilities you’ll have once you morph. This is a handy little feature to help you assess if a certain entity will help you in any given scenario.


And when you want to return to your normal self, all you have to do is hit the bracket key again and scroll to the top. Hit enter and you’ll be back to normal! And you can morph again at any time since the essences will still be with you.

This mod does require the iChun API to be installed as well, found here.

Morph Mod, 3.92 / 5 (7364 votes)


  1. I surely thought you would’ve mentioned that you can morph into things FROM OTHER MODS.
    I just really love that feature, but especially the feature that gives you more hearts depending on the mob you morph into.

    • the abilitys don’t work for me is there a certain button u click?

      July 24, 2019
      • yes brackets

        • In the 1.12.2 version of Morph there are no abilities

          October 12, 2020
          • I can swim really quickly as a squid… doesn’t that count?

            May 26, 2021
          • Its not showing up in the mod options, Can someone explain why?

            May 28, 2021
      • same quesion

        January 2, 2022
  2. You may need to hit the bracket keys to change rather than morphing instantly.

    September 10, 2015
    • Well u can turn insta-morph on by pressing O and finding a option that says “morph instantly”

      September 11, 2015
      • Thanks for the advice. It’s so helpful!

        June 6, 2016
    • I agree with you. And as far as morphing is concerned, you don’t have to kill the same mob again to become it. I mean,If you are an enderman and you want to become the wither boss, you don’t have to kill it again, if you have already killed it, of course!

      March 27, 2016
    • Whats a bracket key, this is probably a really dumb question but I want to know so yeh

      March 7, 2018
      • ‘[‘ or ‘]’

        March 8, 2018
      • The left and right bracket keys [ and ] are next to “P” and above “Enter.”

        March 17, 2018
  3. Can you turn into the Ender Dragon? Because that would be awesome!

    September 18, 2015
    • yes I think

      October 19, 2015
      • When we tried it, we just turned into pigs.

        December 12, 2015
    • yes, but you need to go to the config and turn on ‘morph into boss mobs’

      April 12, 2019
      • where is the config option

        May 2, 2021

  4. Can you morph into a villager cause that would be amazing

    September 25, 2015

    November 8, 2015
    • Press “[” or “]”

      November 29, 2015
    • well you shift and press “[” or “]”

      July 7, 2017
  6. Very cool! Morphing at Ender Dragon, will be the Strongest Player ever!!!

    November 14, 2015
    • You can only use bosses like the Ender Dragon if you have Boss Morphs on. You can enable them in Mods > Morph > Config > Morph > Gameplay. Then set Boss Morphs to Yes.

      May 13, 2019

        January 4, 2018
  11. I saw a video with this mod in it an had a thought. Does anyone know if you can shear a friend who is morphed into a sheep? That would be very interesting.

    March 17, 2017
  12. How do I morph into another version of something? Like another color of sheep or an angry wolf?

    April 19, 2017
  13. I Wanna Try This Out~But two questions

    1 : Can you morph into mods you have their own self-customized skins (E.g: A Squid with a red skin)

    2: Can you still use gear like human gear but with the animal’s and/paw/talon etc.

    July 3, 2017
    • I don’t think you can customize the animal. When you morph, I think the game takes away your gear so that you look like a normal minecraft animal. I’m not quite sure about your first question, though.

      August 22, 2017
    • When you use the morph mod, you can check your inventory and your armor that you are wearing is still in effect and you can still use your tools and such while morphed, but there is no animation of a squid squid swinging a pickaxe. But you can still see food get munched on while you are morphed, I believe.

      May 20, 2020
  14. question if i kill a npc from the custom npcs mod, can i morph into it?

    October 3, 2017
    • Yes, it works with all mods.

      May 13, 2019
  15. I have question.. When you morph into stuff like birds do you get attacked by hostile mobs?

    December 10, 2017
    • You get attacked no matter what you are.

      October 19, 2018
  16. How do you open the favorites menu in 1.7.10?

    December 12, 2017
    • Or is there no favorites menu?

      December 12, 2017
      • press ` (the one on the same key as ~)

        February 8, 2021
  17. How do you actually use the abilities. I’ve been walking around for 20 minutes as a spider, but can’t climb a wall. And I suffocate under water when morphed into a squid.

    December 21, 2017
    • If you are in 1.2.12, I believe that the abilities don’t work. I am playing with this mod in 1.7.10, and the abilities work fine. I suggest playing on a different version. Hope this helps!

      February 25, 2018
  18. can the enderman teleport?

    May 5, 2018
    • the only reason endermen teleport is because they use ender pearls

      March 28, 2020
      • no they run super fast :/ (there is a youtuber called game Theory that did research on it)

        June 11, 2020
        • the game theorists actually theorized that their ability to teleport came from their diet of chorus fruits. they also theorized that endermen were once humans. however, they traveled to the end to escape the native overworld mobs, not realizing that the only way back would be to defeat the ender dragon. they could not do so, thereby causing them to change to the way they look now to adapt to their surroundings

          October 28, 2020
    • if you press (R) you will teleport were you are looking

      November 19, 2021
  19. When I morph into a zombie can I turn the villagers into zombie villager

    June 3, 2018
  20. Can you become the wither with this mod?
    If so, then I’m gonna install this 😀

    August 8, 2018
    • You have to enable that feature. I’m sure someone else can help you with that, or you can find a tutorial.

      May 13, 2019
  21. Awesome mod! 😀 Only wish you could set the number of transformations in the config. Also is there a way to remove them once you have them?
    …OH btw don’t try to turn into a custom npc >.> you’ll keep moving even though your not clicking anything.

    September 17, 2018
    • you can remove it by selecting it but instead of pressing enter you press backspace or delete

      February 8, 2021
  22. Uhh I forgot to ask this lol..
    Is there a way to choose what ability goes to the mobs? Like I use Ice and Fire mod and the hippogriff flys and walks just fine when i morph but the dragon likes to walk in the sky. (on creative) In survival neither of them let me fly which sucks :c

    September 18, 2018
  23. Need Help , is there a button to press to use their abilities because i can’t figure it out

    March 19, 2019
  24. does this mod work with the newer mobs like dolphins, pillagers, turtles, and foxes?

    August 17, 2019
  25. Are you planning on updating this mod to 1.15, or making another version for 1.15?

    June 18, 2020
    • Yeah I would realyy like a 1.15 version

      June 30, 2020
  26. Very good mod, I would really like a 1.15 or maybe even 1.16.1. It would be very fun to mess around with the new mobs.

    July 16, 2020
  27. I have been trying to get the morph mod for six months now and I have finally found it *v*

    October 28, 2020
  28. do your nametags still show if you transform?

    October 28, 2020
  29. Hi, why do zombies kill me when I become a zombie?

    December 15, 2020
    • because you’re techinally still a player in the game’s code

      August 18, 2023
  30. How do you use the mob ability?
    Like a creeper or something.

    January 18, 2021
  31. YaY!! I can now prank my friends!

    February 4, 2021
  32. do your nametags still show if you transform?

    February 4, 2021
  33. I just got the mod yesterday, and i can prank my friends by a enderman while holding the end portal frame lol!

    February 26, 2021
  34. If someone in a modpack has issue finding the Keybindings,
    “Esc” -> “Mod Options” -> “A-Z” -> Search for “Morhp” -> And then probably Morph again -> Keybindings and then u can bind them forexample to the arrow keys,
    Just wanted to share because we really had trouble finding a way to keybind it in the 1.12.2 Pack

    March 13, 2021
  35. Whenever I try this mod for 1.12.2, it says, You must include the right dependencies for Morph:
    Requires ichuntil 7.2.0 or above, and below 8.0.0 (missing)

    Idk what to do
    I have iChuntil-4.1.0 installed, yet nothing happens

    March 15, 2021
  36. Can you make it where you can morph as a baby wolf? It’d be cute! :3

    May 8, 2021
  37. Can you morph into things from different mods, like dragons from ice and fire?

    May 8, 2021
  38. Please answer.How we can fly in blaze or birds? it’s saying me “your wings recoil in pain”

    June 11, 2021
  39. Does anyone know how Aphmau morphs into a kitten in this video?

    September 9, 2021
    • No, but it would be cool to do that.

      December 15, 2021
    • Can you edit the things that you morph into?

      December 15, 2021
