Glowing is a status effect that shows entity positions through blocks.

Effect[]

The Glowing effect, added to all entities by command.

The Glowing effect causes entities to glow with an outline that can be seen through blocks and entities. This outline is white by default, but can be set to display other colors if the entity is part of a team. The outline displays around any holes in a mob's texture or model, though only when that part of the model can be seen all the way through. If multiple entities with glowing are near each other, the outlines merge to prevent overlapping.

This does not affect mob models as seen in the inventory, of either the player or ridden mobs.[1]

Causes[]

Cause Potency Length Notes
Spectral Arrow I 0:10 When shot by it.
Bell I 0:03 If an illager is within 48 blocks, hitting a bell applies the effect to any illagers within 48 blocks.

Immune mobs[]

Boss mobs are unaffected by Glowing.
