Warden JE1 BE1 Warden
  • The first fully blind mob (bats have basic eyesight, both in-game and in the real world).
    • Because of this, it stumbles as it walks.
    • Has a sense of smell. It can detect and pathfind toward the general location of a player or mob through a "smelling" action.
      • Prioritizes smelling the player or mob that it is most suspicious of, rather than the one closest to it.

      • It follows and attacks players, mobs, and other entities that make vibrations.[note 1]
        • It does not attack other wardens.
      • When it detects a vibration, the growths on its head rattle and light up, similar to the sculk sensor.
        • Seems to follow the same rules as the sculk sensor when detecting vibrations.
        • If any projectile (e.g. egg, snowball, arrow) lands near it, the warden inspects the location where the projectile landed, due to the projectile creating significant vibrations. This feature can be used in order to cause a distraction.
      • Does not detect players that are sneaking.
    • Can detect players or mobs that have the Invisibility effect.
  • Becomes more suspicious of a player or mob as it detects its location more through vibrations and/or smelling. When it suspects the target enough, it identifies its exact location, which aggravates it, causing it to pathfind toward the target to attack regardless of outside distractions.

    • It is the only mob that spawns in the deep dark biome.
  • "Emerges" from the ground when spawned by sculk shriekers.

  • A mob designed to be extremely difficult, intended to be avoided and fled from.
    • Has 500♥ × 250 health points and does 30♥ × 15 damage on Normal difficulty, bringing players wearing full netherite armor from full health to 7♥♥♥♥ health points.

(More health than a wither (300♥ × 150) except in BE, hard mode, where Wither HP = 600♥ × 300)
  • Warden's chest has a glowing core that appears to brighten and dim in tandem with the Darkness effect.
    • The core creates a low throbbing or "heartbeat" sound as it pulses. The sound and animation speed up rapidly as the warden gets more suspicious of or closer to attacking a player or mob.
  • Is about 3.5 blocks tall, making it one of the tallest mobs in the game, exceeding the iron golem and enderman in height and width (the same).
    • Wardens have long melee reach, being able to hit the player when on top of a four block pillar, thus making it capable of countering certain cheese tactics, such as pillaring.
  • Can charge a ranged attack when the player is building high, hiding behind walls or being out of range of their melee attack.
    • Their rib cages open up to shriek a sonically charged ranged attack that can penetrate walls and bypasses shields and armor.
    • The ranged attack deals 10♥♥♥♥♥ damage in Normal and can hit at a horizontal distance of 15 blocks.
