It has been suggested that this page be moved to End Portal.
If this move affects many pages or may potentially be controversial, do not move the page until a consensus is reached.
Reason: the block's name is capitalized, at least in Java Edition, so it'll still be a distinct page title from End portal.
When moving, be sure to use the appropriate tool instead of simply copying and pasting the page's contents, to preserve edit history.
This article is about the block that makes up the portal. For the blocks that make up the frame, see End Portal Frame. For other uses, see End portal (disambiguation).

The end portal block is a block generated when an end portal or exit portal is activated, which teleports the player between the Overworld and the End.


In Java Edition, the end portal block cannot be obtained as an item. It can be placed only by using block placement commands such as /setblock, or simply by building End portals. In Bedrock Edition, it may be obtained as an item via inventory editing, add-ons or by using bugs.


End portal blocks can be used to teleport into and out of the End. When a player or other entity in the Overworld or the End touches an End portal block, it is instantly taken to the other dimension. If a single portal block is placed using commands, it can still be used to travel between dimensions.

All entities traveling to the End appear on the obsidian platform, recreating it if necessary. Players traveling to the Overworld appear at their individual spawn point, while other entities appear at the world spawn point.


  • End Portal blocks can be destroyed in Creative Mode. This does not affect adjacent End Portal blocks.
  • A portal block is invisible when viewed from underneath.[1]
  • End portals do not reduce fall damage.‌[Java Edition only]
  • The top surface of an End portal is 34 the height of a full block.[verify]
  • The End portal is one of the only blocks without a conventional texture or entity texture; it instead duplicates and layers a starfield pattern.
  • If TNT is detonated on an end portal, no blocks in its blast radius are destroyed.
  • Ridden entities (and their riders) pass through the portal without being teleported.
  • The ender dragon cannot teleport through portals.
  • In Java Edition, the wither cannot teleport through portals, but can do so in Bedrock Edition.
  • If /setblock is used to place an End Portal block in the Overworld, Nether, or in a custom dimension, then the End Portal block teleports the player to the End dimension. If the End Portal block is placed in the End, then the End Portal block teleports the player to their spawn point.
  • Items can fall through an end portal, including falling blocks, such as TNT. The items appear in the End dimension.

Piston interactivity[edit]

End portal blocks cannot be pushed by pistons. They also cannot be pushed nor pulled by sticky pistons.

Java Edition
1.0.0Beta 1.9 Prerelease 3-1End portals have an unobtainable item form corresponding to its block ID, which has interesting model behavior. It can be obtained via inventory editors with numeric item ID 119.
In this version, players would immediately start out with this item upon generating a world or when respawning.
Like with the nether portal item, it has a rather strange model. Initially it appears as a cube End Portal (cube) (inventory) JE1.png using the untinted grass block top texture, but observing a placed end portal block will cause this cube to change to a thin slice characteristic of the end portal block hitbox: End Portal (flat) (inventory) JE1.png
As end portal blocks had no assigned name, mousing over the block in the inventory would cause an instant game crash.
If an end portal item already existed in the hotbar, using pick block on an existing end portal block would switch the hotbar to select that block like with any other item.
It can be placed in the Nether.
Beta 1.9 Prerelease 3-2The player no longer starts out with this item on world generation or when respawning.
Beta 1.9 Prerelease 4Grass Block (top texture) JE3 BE1.png End portals now appear as a flat, untinted grass block top texture as an item.

Beta 1.9 Prerelease 5Grass Block (top texture) JE4 BE2.png The grass block top texture has changed, changing the end portal item's appearance as well as a result.
?When attempted to be placed in the Nether or End, placement will fail but the placement sound will still play. Whether this consumes the item in survival is unknown.
1.2.5preEnd portal items can now be obtained via pick block in Creative.[verify]
1.3.112w16aEnd portal items can now be obtained in singleplayer worlds via the /give command using the respective numeric ID.
