An evoker is an illager and a powerful mob found in Minecraft Dungeons. When spawned, a music soundtrack plays. In Arcade version, it's considered a regular hostile mob.


In the introduction, Walda the evoker is seen crowning the Arch-Illager as the ruler of the Illagers. As the Arch-Illager gets up from his throne, all the illagers except Walda bow, causing the Arch-Illager to hit Walda with the Orb of Dominance to force Walda to bow.


The Rise of the Arch-Illager[]

Spoiler warning
Spoiler warning! This section contains detailed information about Minecraft Dungeons that may spoil your enjoyment of it. Read at your own risk!

In the prequel novel about Archie's origin, two evokers were confirmed to have their real name:

  • Walda — A female evoker, was the leader of a Woodland Mansion and orphaned Archie. In the end she puts the crown on the Arch-Illager's head and bows down to him.
  • Thord — Archie's childhood and former bully. After "Smacker" completely obliterates the raid party, Thord and Archie are the only survivors. Thord decided that it was all Archie's fault for not helping even though he had told Archie to stay out of the fight. Thord reports to the leader Walda. Thord betrayed Archie, causing Archie to be exiled. The Arch-Illager eventually defeated Thord.

Baby Ghast Presents:The Illager’s New Robes[]

An unnamed evoker was featured as the protagonist of Baby Ghast Presents:The Illager’s New Robes, a story that the baby ghast told in a Twitter post revolving around the unnamed evoker creating the Baby Ghast-fit armor.[1]


An evoker's appearance in Minecraft Dungeons is similar to its default counterpart in the base game, however, an evoker in Minecraft Dungeons is slightly bigger than other illagers, about 3 blocks tall.

An evoker's strong attack spell animation

Evoker can casting two spell in one round.

An evoker has two attacks. While not attacking, it attempts to stay a certain distance from the heroes by running.

Basic attack

An evoker raises its hands, enveloped in a purple aura, summoning three vexes in a circle around it.

Strong attack

An evoker raises its hands, enveloped in a yellow aura, then lowers them, summoning a stream of fangs out of the ground to hurt approaching heroes by snapping shut. The evoker fangs are non-attackable mobs that appear either as a line of seven fangs from the evoker towards the target, or as a circle of twelve fangs around the evoker. This is its most powerful attack.

Combo attack

Evoker can summon vexes and fangs both in couple seconds. Similar to the evoker from original Minecraft Java Edition.

Natural equipment

A vex is a flying hostile mob found in Minecraft Dungeons.


A vex's appearance in Dungeons is almost the same as its original appearance in the base game, with the only difference is it being more luminescent and glowing unlike its normal, default counterparts, as well as having darker colored cracks on its skin and shorter wings. Another key difference is that when attacking, the cracks now appear as a flaming orange rather than white.


There is no limit to the number of vexes following the hero. Vexes are also the only other entity in the game that can roll, besides dead mobs and redstone cubes. They can only roll while attacking or idle.

Strong attack

Unlike the base game, the vex attacks like any normal enemy, unable to go through blocks.

Evoker "novelty" animation.

A rare behavior when they idle. The animation file can be found in game data file.

Data values[]

  • In the game files, the evoker is referred to internally as the Evoker and the IllagerEvoker.
  • In the game files, the evoker fang is referred to internally as the Fang.


  • In the evoker's bossfight theme, there is a "wololoo" heard in it. This is the sound they make in the base game while turning a blue sheep red. The sound itself is a reference to another Microsoft franchise, Age of Empires, where the priest unit can turn enemy units into friendly units (changing the unit's color in the process) after making a "wololoo" sound.
  • When the evoker dies, it plays a new ghost screaming in the background with its death sounds. This screaming sound can also be heard in some missions such as the graveyard in the Creeper Woods.
  • When an enchanter enchants the evoker, its HP increases by only 25%.
  • It's possible to stun the evoker's fangs, which causes them to simply sit in place and not snap or move. This can be done with the Snowball enchantment.
  • The description of the evoker's battle robe states that evokers are the ones that made it. In the Redstone Mines and rarely in the Colossal Rampart, the evoker can rarely drop its battle robe when killed.
  • The evoker raises its eyebrows when summoning fangs, and closes its eyes when summoning vexes.
  • In the Arcade version it is a main boss instead.
