Actually leedsichthys is tameable but this is only in PC. To tame it in PC, come near it, then press tab then type "cheat forcetame" near the leedsichthys, make sure it does not get away, and done! its tamed and you can still scrape prime fish meat from it and you can ride it!

(This can only be done in non-mobile devices).

(You cannot do this in mobile)
