Q. What’s the behavior of Balloons in Minecraft?

Only fences and walls can support the balloon. On the fence, it glides upward. However, when the fence is removed, it floats into the air. Balloons only affect livestock, not pets and monsters. Note that Arrows and tridents can destroy your balloons. Melee weapons and tools in Minecraft won’t destroy them; they will merely hit them slightly.

Q. What is the usage of balloons in Minecraft?

Balloons are tied to a fence, mob, or wall. Balloons rise faster into the air than the player but stay still if connected to a fence. If attached to a mob, the balloon takes off with the mob, and they both disappear into thin air.
