The dragon egg is a decorative block or a "trophy item", and is the rarest item obtainable in the game, as it generates once and once only.



A single dragon egg is generated on top of the exit portal when the first ender dragon is defeated. A dragon egg usually cannot be mined directly, as trying to do so causes it to teleport within a 31×31×31[verify] volume centered on the egg. If all air blocks in that area are filled so there is nowhere for the egg to teleport to, it can be mined. The dragon egg is a falling block and drops as an item when pushed by a piston or when it falls onto a block less than one meter tall, such as a bottom slab.

Heatmap of where a dragon egg lands after trying to mine it.

Particles of a dragon egg.

The dragon egg, if there is no block below it, falls until it lands on the next available block. When it is being affected by gravity and falling, it exhibits a smooth falling animation.

It does not suffocate mobs or players when it falls and covers them.

The dragon egg can be placed on a non-solid block without falling.

Like other falling blocks, when the dragon egg is floating, it has black particles falling from it.

Light source[]

Dragon eggs emit a light level of 1.


To cause the egg to teleport, press attack while in Survival or Adventure mode (press use in Creative). It teleports to an air block nearby (up to seven blocks vertically and fifteen blocks horizontally), creating the same particles as endermen. It may teleport into the air and subsequently fall to the ground since they forcefully obey gravity. If all available air blocks are filled, it is possible to break the block.

Dragon egg teleportation is completely silent.[1]

The Void[]

In the case that egg teleportation finds an invalid location such as a negative y value, it makes an additional attempt to find a valid location, centered on the invalid location rather than the original position.

Şablon:İssue list


  • When destroyed by an explosion, the block always drops as an item.
  • The writer of the Minecraft comic WonderCraft, Samcube, was requested by Mojang to create official Minecraft posters. In a part of these works, one can see an area with an ender dragon and a chicken on top of a huge mushroom. In the same scene, the dragon egg is visible near the chicken.
  • The dragon egg was technically renewable on Şablon:El versions of the game, using the option to completely reset the end and get another 'first' dragon kill.
  • If the dragon egg teleports and falls into the portal, it will spawn in the Overworld at the world spawn.
