The Soul Entity is a mob that can be summoned with the Soul Lantern, found only in Minecraft Dungeons.


The Soul Entity is a rather small ghost mob about the size of a Vex or possibly smaller. Its body is covered in purple tattered clothing and wears a hat that resembles the upper part of a lantern. Its hands and face are only visible, with its hands and eyes seen glowing bright blue. On its waist is a red ribbon binding its clothing together. The name entity comes from the Homecoming achievements name for the mob.[1]


The Soul Entity can be summoned using the Soul Lantern which requires souls and will disappear a few seconds later.


Upon being summoned, the Soul Entity will follow the player and attack mobs that startle it. When the Soul Entity is defeated, it will disappear with a shattering sound heard. Similar to the Bees, the Soul Entity has a limited survival time and will automatically disappear after a while, and the player needs to use the Soul Lantern to summon again.

Basic attack

They attack by shooting soul bolts at mobs.
