This article is about what removed block IDs convert to, as well as to link to pages listing removed data variants of blocks. For blocks removed from Java Edition, see Removed blocks. For other removed features, see Java Edition removed features. For removed block variants in Bedrock Edition, see Bedrock Edition removed blocks.
It has been suggested that this page be merged with Bedrock Edition removed blocks into Removed blocks. [discuss]
If this merge affects many pages or may potentially be controversial, do not merge the page until a consensus is reached.
Reason: Having a section for removed blocks on the removed blocks page makes more sense than having a separate page. Whether a block is from Java Edition or Bedrock Edition can be stated on the page.

Due to there currently not being a wide variety of blocks removed from any edition, all such cases are listed on the main Removed blocks page. This page lists all Java Edition block ID conversions, as well as linking to diverse lists of removed data variants of blocks.

Numeric ID replacements[]

Prior to 17w47a, block IDs were stored internally as integer values. As a result, certain removed blocks would end up having their numeric IDs used by another block from a future version. The table below lists all such conversions.
