    Love the idea but a new dimension is a little much. I love the ink idea and I love his drop. The heart could definitely be used to craft something cool. Maybe it could add on to the conduit power. Late game under water lol.

    Yeah that was me. I really would like to see this implemented into this game. I really like some of your ideas as well! Also, if you are playing with friends, and the Kraken attacks your ship (goes back to my idea for larger ships), the Kraken would also grab one of your friends (one of the players) and try to drown them until another players shoots an arrow, trident, or bullet (another idea of mine for flintlock pistols and blunderbusses) at it. This was just another idea I had for it if it was implemented.

    I love the idea of a kraken to deter players from shipwrecks. A mob that prevents loot rushing early game might serve as a useful balancing factor and an entertaining challenge for players!

    Wow, sounds great, It would be cool if it could drop something called "the mini mantle" (the mantle is the weird hat lookin' thing on a squid's head) the mini mantle would be a hat that grants water breathing, however, it would have to be fuelled by ink sacks, it would be pretty awesome.

    Johnny Gunther I have to disagree. I think a fantastical ocean dimension would be really cool, but it couldn't be just like the regular ocean. There has to be fantasy elements, such as possibly giant coral, giant bubble ecosystems, stuff like that.

    I agree, Krakens are pretty much bigger versions of Squids right? And since the squid and guardian are mobs that hate each other, I'd say that It would be pretty cool for the Kraken to rival the Elder Guardian(s).

    The dimension idea is maybe a bit too far. Minecraft dimensions need a use, and a theme that can make other mobs that couldn't simply be transferred to the overworked with the same effect. Another thing, the kraken is going to be pretty big. Maybe another boat should be added, as it is a giant squid, so it would live under water. I think they would more likely be too hard to take out on your own. As the kraken destroyed many many ships in its legends. I think it would more of be something you avoid rather then want to fight. However, cannons could work to defeat it. Maybe i'll make my own suggestion about this. I think the way you'd kill it is by shooting it's tentacles, after which it would rise from the depths and you could shoot cannon balls into its mouth, or go inside it to defeat it.

    This is an awesome idea I love this I’d imagine like giving it its own like home or like hide out or something like a bigger ship like a frigate of some sort. But this is actually really cool and I’ve been wanting something like this since I was a kid the beta and I’d love to see it

    This would be awsome it would be cool if he had his own arena like the ender dragon does, that way it wouldnt have to lag you all the time in the overworld istead you can find this arena by finding a huge dark pit in the ocean going down the pit would bring you to his arena underwater battle with new potion to help you breath there using your trident to slay it or you know swords

    i liked your creativity, but dont u think, take a look at wither, at ender dragon, at creeper. they where never existed before minecraft and now they are symbols, my grandpa (89 years old! cant hear!) knows what is a creeper! they are unique, not repeated. you know? got my word? i mean this boss is not very good and cant turn into a symbol. i like the idea of a ocean boss that looks like squids, but forgot that part of your idea. about water dimension.

    Mob A in the last Minecon Earth could've been the Kraken sadly.

    Dude your proposing mob A, which we have been told by Jeb will never be added due to being voted out, and we don't need an ocean dimension.

    You never know. Also you're right. We don't really need an ocean dimension but it could be a planet. I mean it is Minecraft.

    I mean I like the concept but a boss in the overworld without manual summoning? That's really the only problem I have with this.

    New dimension would be a bit much, the rest seems cool though

    What if the new dimension was the Deep Trench?

    I had that idea too. I had this idea where you get the kraken tentacle and heart and sell it for tons of emeralds and if you get 9 hearts you can make the heart block. The heart block can respawn the boss as long as it is under water.

    Maybe this could replace the kraken in the abyss idea because then the abyss idea would all work combining the mechanics of both ideas because the abyss is a water dimension

    a new dimension i kinda too much  would guardians fear this creature or would they attack it ?

    maybe the scepter could be used to control sea life to follow you and attack hostiles, and/or make coral/coral blocks grow into large coral like in coral reefs, it could also bring coral back to life.

    there should definitely be multiple.

    maybe, if underwater cities or villages in the dimension you speak of are ever added, holding this could give you a hero of the village like affect.

    how would pirates work without large boats and guns(mojang said no to this a long time ago)?they could be pirate zombies with crossbows and swords on normal boats+swim like drowns, but that just has a different vibe to it.

    instead of just a fish, there should be a whole other ecosystem, with baby krakens and eggs that be collected brought home, hatched, tamed with the scepter, and kept in an aquarium or something, it wouldn't grow to full size, so it could transported with buckets of water, maybe it could only grow to be 2 blocks long, 1 block tall, and 1 block wide, almost like a cuttlefish(not subnuatica)

    The idea is awesome but a new Dimension is a but too much i think, so with the heart you can maybe make magical wand or a ocean breastplate with special effects :)

    I would really like to see an underwater boss, giving more use to the trident, but I don't think this is the way to do it.

    I agree upon everything you said, but I would add that the scepter is used to activate a structure you build, like flint and steel with the nether portal.
