The Nether is one of the most important places in the entire game, and yet at times it can feel like the most boring place in the game. This is why there should be another Zombie Pigman variant. Much like how Zombies can "drown" in water I think that the same mechanic could be applied to Pigmen, where they can "drown" in lava. This change would likely change the experience for most players and even improve it.
How Does It Work?:
All the same rates would be applied to the Zombie Pigman in the way of conversion to the new mob, and the drops would also be similar to that of the Zombie Pigman.
The Pigmen after being "scorched" would become entirely hostile, they would attack the player on sight and even, upon entering the overworld, attack all other mobs. These changes in particular would force payers to develop new ways to protect their Nether Portals, lest an angry and unwanted guest were to appear from the other side.
Much like how the Drowned has the trident, I think it would be unique to give the "Scorched" a special weapon of some kind. This weapon could be a variant of the gold sword with "Fire Aspect II" built in, this drop would have the same stats as a gold sword, but it could have up to "Fire Aspect IV" on it. This would be "Fire Aspect II" and the base stats of the sword. This could change how pvp functions in Minecraft along with spicing up the weapon pool.
