The Carrot on a Stick was introduced as a means for guiding saddled Pigs, but pigs without Saddles still follow it. The Carrot on a Stick requires a Carrot and a Fishing Rod to craft. The Fishing Rod must be undamaged, or else the crafting recipe will not work.
When on a saddled pig, the player must hold the Carrot on a Stick in the direction they want to go (just turn normally). The pig will gradually accelerate, eventually reaching 5 meters /second (5 blocks/second). However, if the player wants to leave the pig running in the same direction for a moment (for example, to pull out their sword to hit an enemy), they must right-click the Carrot on a Stick, losing 1 out of its 3 durability, to give their pig a burst of speed in one direction without control unless the Carrot on a Stick is used again. However, this allows the player to use an item other than the Carrot on a Stick for a short period of time, for example, to fend off an attacking mob.
- The Carrot on a Stick is a reference to the common cartoon trope.
