A Vindicator attacks the player on sight. It usually moves faster than other melee mobs. If it sees a player, it charges and attacks with an axe.
Although Vindicators have high movement speed, they have more delay than other melee mobs when attacking. Their attack speed is slightly slower than zombies but deal more damage and are tougher.
If a vindicator standing is standing in a taunt circle and getting hurt, they become aggressive and deal more damage to the player.
Vindicators lock onto the player if they run more than 15 blocks away.
- Unlike the original game's vindicator, the Vindicator in Minecraft Dungeons had its Idle 5 sound removed.
- The Vindicator and its variants have new "Novelty" sounds, such as a taunt sounds when swinging its weapon or axe.
- The Vindicator of the beta versions that can be seen in the Minecraft Dungeons: Opening Cinematic and in the Squid Coast loading screen, used the skin texture of the base game (pre 1.14) and had a collar with the same color as the pants, instead of red.
Before the Arch-Illager appeared, the Vindicators were the basic illager soldiers, guarding the Woodland Mansions and participating in raids, after Archie keeps the Orb of Dominance, the Vindicators (and Pillagers) leaded by the Evokers Thord and Walda joined the Arch-Illager's army, patrolling now the Highblock Keep; the Fiery Forge; Redstone Mines and participating in raids, now with the help of Redstone Golems and Monstrosities. After the main characters defeat the Arch-Illager, they traveled to other areas of the Mainland and even other dimensions, where the Vindicators can also be found, it's unknown if the illagers were already there before the Arch-Illager's fall.
