Why Should I Kill the Mobs in Minecraft?

You should kill mobs for adding extra space to your Minecraft World. You cannot build a house or a kingdom of your own if the mobs keep roaming around you.

You can kill the Mobs with a Diamond Sword. But it takes a long time to kill every single entity. And the worst part is that, the leftovers keep coming back. To avoid such situation, use the command block to kill the type of mob. You can also use the command kill e type to select every entity you want to kill.
