Poison is a common potion in Minecraft game. Players may get poisoned from different elements of different biomes. For e.g., if a player consumes any rotted meat by mistake, when dropped after killing a zombie, the player is likely to be poisoned. A player can also get poisoned if he/she comes in close proximity with a witch of its hut. The witch or the hut can throw poison at you.

There are different types of poisons, such as, Potion of Poison, Splash Potion of Poison and Lingering Potion of Poison. If a player drink Potion of Poison, then his health will drain gradually and slowly. The Splash potion of Poison also has the same effect, but you can use it on other players. The Lingering Potion of Poison produces a cloud, which gives a poison effect to any player who touches it.
