  • MythicMobs: Items created by MythicMobs use legacy color codes within modern text components (eg. http://prntscr.com/we8kcs , serialized: http://prntscr.com/we8l0n). Spigot heuristically checks for legacy color codes in the serialized text to determine whether its legacy text or modern JSON-based text. This heuristic breaks here due to this mixing of text components and legacy color codes. Both Spigot and Minecraft recommend to not mix these (see Spigot wiki and the various Mojang tickets involving the use of legacy color codes).
