A phantom (also referred to as Mob B, or the Monster of the Night Skies) is a hostile, flying mob that was added to Minecraft in 1.13 - The Update Aquatic. [1] This mob was the winner of a competition during MineCon Earth 2017, where players could vote for one of a few mobs they wanted to see added to Minecraft.[2]

Overview

Phantoms spawn at high altitudes in groups of 3 or 4 in the overworld, and will attack players who haven't slept in a few (3) days.[3]

Phantoms are blue in color with green eyes (much like the original Endermen eyes) with some bones exposed. They also emit black particles while flying.

Phantoms are considered undead mobs, meaning that they burn in direct sunlight, take extra damage if hit with a sword enchanted with smite, immune to poison, and invert the effects of instant health and instant damage potions

Phantoms drop 0–1 phantom membranes when they die.

Phantoms attack players by swooping down at the player, similar to the Ender Dragon, but inflict little knockback. It is recommended to use a sword to attack a phantom as opposed to a bow, as phantoms rarely remain in one spot long enough for the player to hit it.

Trivia

  • A phantom will not attack a player while they are swimming on the surface of a large body of water but will dive to attack a player who is underwater.
  • Only five Phantoms can be present in one world at a time in the PS4 and both Xbox additions, and they do not contribute to the amount of enemies in a world, nor do their spawn eggs appear in the upper section of the spawn eggs with all of the other enemy spawn eggs in the creative inventory. It is unknown why this is.
  • There is a commands that can summon a drowned riding a phantom, also known as a phantom jockey; however, this mob does not spawn naturally. The command to summon a phantom jockey is: /summon phantom ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:drowned,HandItems:[{id:trident,Count:1b}]}]}
