A wither skeleton is a hostile mob found in the new Minecraft Dungeons DLC Flames of the Nether.

Spawning[]

Behavior[]

Wither skeletons run at high speed toward the player and strike with their sword, dealing melee damage, and inflicting a wither effect that deals some additional damage over time. Unlike in the base game, they also have a ranged variant that wields a red snake. After hitting they retreat for a short time before rushing again. They are also capable of sensing players even with the Shadow Form.

Compared to their base game counterparts, wither skeletons in Minecraft Dungeons are not immune to lava, and they move faster. They also do not attack piglins.
