in Education Edition, the agent is a mob that helps players learn coding, by getting players to code the actions on it. The agent can be programmed to execute a lot of tasks, like planting and harvesting, mining, chopping trees, and building.
The visual interface allows the player to drag and drop commands, structural constructs and other components into a sequence, and associate the sequence with a custom-named slash command, which can be executed in the traditional way, from the console.
The agent can push pressure plates, but cannot interact with buttons, levers or other right-click mechanisms like doors and gates.

- The agent is seen in the official image of Education Edition.
- The agent is the only mob exclusive to Education Edition. Bedrock Edition also contains resources for the mob, however, the mob is unobtainable in game. By installing Code Connection, it is possible to use in Minecraft Windows 10 Edition.
- On the free 10th-anniversary map that @BlockworksYT released, there is a puzzle in the "Library" area that involves controlling the Agent with glazed terracotta. On the Bedrock version of the map, the agent is added in as a new mob, while on Java, it is an armor stand with remodeled infested chiseled stone bricks on its head.
- The agent spawn egg can be obtained with an NBT editor in Bedrock Edition. However, when spawned via the spawn egg it is completely invisible. This is probably due to the same glitch making compounds invisible and uncraftable.
- Clicking on a spawner with an Agent Spawn egg does not create an Agent spawner, but summons your Agent next to it, making it the only spawn egg to do so.
