The whip is a tool that can be used to prevent mobs from moving.
Big Cat Claw +
When right-clicked on top of a solid, fully opaque block, fire particles will come out of the block, and the whip will make a 'whip-crack' sound. A whip has 24 uses, and each use on the ground will consume durability.
Any tamed mobs within at least a 10 block radius will automatically sit after the whip is used; whipping the ground around the mob(s) listed below will cause all stationary mobs to begin moving around once more, and all moving mobs to become stationary. Because this will affect multiple mobs with one use, it makes it a much more efficient way to manage groups.
If a whip is used near a tamed big cat, bear, kitty, manticore, scorpion or wyvern, it will sit. If used on a tamed horse or ostrich, it will lower its head. Mobs cannot be ridden if a whip is in the player's hand.
When a whip is used when riding a nightmare, it will light the ground on fire for a short period of time.
If a whip is used on a horse when being ridden, it will speed up for a short amount of time. If used on a unicorn, it will gain the ability to charge and ram at mobs. This lasts for about 10 seconds, afterwards the unicorn will move slowly as it recharges.
A whip can be used on a tamed ostrich whilst riding it to give it a short speed boost. Using it on a light ostrich allows it to ram at mobs in a similar manner to a unicorn.
Both elephants and mammoths will also gain a short speed boost after a whip is used whilst riding it. Like unicorns, elephants can ram mobs with their tusks when a whip is used.
Since whips are made from big cat claws, if a whip is used near a wild big cat, it will attack you.
A whip can receive the following enchantments, but only through an anvil:
