Night Vision is a status effect that enhances the player's ability to see in darkness and underwater.

Effect[edit]

Night vision greatly increases the brightness, so the player can easily see in a light level of 0. However, it is not as bright as a light level of 15 (e.g. with the "Moody" brightness setting, it is similar to sky light level 12–14 with the "Bright" brightness setting), and as such the player can distinguish between light levels.

In Java Edition 20w14∞, in certain dimensions with unique lighting, the player can see the color spectrum that is not parts of the vanilla lighting system (e.g. vivid shades of green, blue, etc.) easily as the effect is not as fully bright, even with the "Bright" brightness setting (in other cases, in some dimensions (such as Easter Egg dimensions like ant) already has the full brightness at any light levels (including light level 0), so the night vision effect is indifferent from the player without the effect in the dimensions).
