    Finally, as an interesting gameplay mechanic, they could potentially "Burrow" or "Bore" through blocks (not affecting the block) to get to a player. The would do this slowly as to not make them too OP, but having this mechanic in the first place, makes getting away from this creature, and generally encountering it, much more thrilling!

    (I couldn't fit this in above!)

    Reduce your speed, and give you knockback!? Looks like this could put you in some fun situations with lava... i love it!

    Excellent idea, this would make mining netherite much more interesting.

    I really like this idea!

    Maybe they could also be found in the Soulsand Valley? 
    What should they drop? Maybe spider eyes, string, blaze powder?

    They could directly drop netherite scrap and it would be a real challenge and the only dangerous thing in the nether (piglin/golden armor, pigmen/passive, hoglin/warped fungus, wither skeletons and endermen/2 blocks high tunnel, blazes/shield). It would be the miniboss of the nether.

    A new rare material drop could be incorporated, like some sort of scales or wings, that could be combined onto elytra to give it a new skin!

    This is by far one of the best mob request I've seen; other mobs like the fox and the ocelot can just be completely ignored. This however not only makes netherite more challenging, but more interesting to obtain.

    I think they should drop an extremely rare drop, Magma Scales. They could be used to make better armor than netherite but have low durability, higher enchant/ repair cost in anvils, and a bad enchantability. In fact, I'll make an article just to support this one!
