In Foundation Edition whenever a baby zombie pigman is triggered, it’s 15% chance to become jockey when attempting to fight the gamer or golem. Mobs that are mountable by baby zombie pigmen are:
- Adult chicken (are only able to spawn naturally within the Overworld)
- Polar bear
- Zombie horse (unused jockey variant)
- Skeleton horse
- Adult zombie
- Adult zombie villager
- Adult zombie pigman
- Adult Husk
- Cave spider
Because of baby zombie pigmen only wanting to become jockey if triggered with a player or golem, and many mountable mobs spawn within the Overworld, these baby zombie pigmen jockey variants would be the rarest kind of jockey. Although baby zombie pigmen wish to be a jockey when triggered, it stills keeps riding the mountable mob despite becoming neutral again.
Mobs being ridden by baby zombie pigmen can’t be ridden through the player.
