      The Bug:

      Glowing is considered a positive effect in potion item tooltips.

      In the HUD, glowing is displayed as a negative effect.

      Steps to Reproduce:

      1. Give yourself a potion of glowing by using the command provided below.
        /give @s minecraft:potion{CustomPotionEffects:[{Id:24,Amplifier:1,Duration:200}]}
      2. Hold your mouse cursor over the item in your inventory.
      3. Take note as to whether or not glowing is considered a positive effect in potion item tooltips.

      Observed Behavior:

      Glowing is considered a positive effect in potion item tooltips. The text in the potion tooltip is blue, indicating that glowing is considered a positive effect.

      Expected Behavior:

      Glowing would not be considered a positive effect in potion item tooltips. The text in the potion tooltip should be displayed in red to indicate that it's considered a negative effect.

      Code Analysis:

      Code analysis by Avoma can be found below.

      The following is based on a decompiled version of Minecraft 1.19.2 using MCP-Reborn.

      public enum MobEffectCategory {
      public class MobEffects {
         public static final MobEffect GLOWING = register(24, "glowing", new MobEffect(MobEffectCategory.NEUTRAL, 9740385));

      If we look at the above classes, we can see that mob effects that are included within the NEUTRAL category are formatted in blue. Since the glowing effect is categorized as a NEUTRAL effect, it appears blue in potion item tooltips, therefore resulting in this issue occurring.


      Simply changing the categorization of the glowing effect to HARMFUL will format this effect in red within potion item tooltips, thus resolving this problem.
