Ravager jockeys are formed when a Pillager, Vindicator or an Evoker rides on a Ravager.

Spawning[]

Main article: Ravager § Spawning

Ravager jockeys spawn only during raids.

Java Edition[]

A pillager riding a ravager spawns in wave 5 of a raid. In wave seven, a vindicator spawns riding a ravager. They can be spawned with the following commands:

/summon minecraft:ravager ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:pillager,HandItems:[{id:crossbow,Count:1b}]}]}

  • This command spawns a pillager riding ravager.

/summon minecraft:ravager ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:vindicator,HandItems:[{id:iron_axe,Count:2b}]}]}

  • This command spawns a vindicator riding ravager.

/summon minecraft:ravager ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:evoker}]}

  • This command spawns an evoker riding ravager.

/summon minecraft:ravager ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:illusioner,HandItems:[{id:bow,Count:1b}]}]}

  • This command spawns an illusioner riding ravager.

/summon minecraft:ravager ~ ~ ~ {Passengers:[{id:witch}]}

  • This command spawns an witch riding ravager.

However, in Java Edition, almost any mob can ride a ravager with commands, see Tutorials/Summoning jockeys for more information.

Bedrock Edition[]

Up to 5 ravagers spawn as part of a raid. A ravager ridden by a pillager spawns at waves 5 and 7, and a ravager ridden by an evoker spawns at wave 7.
They can be spawned with the commands:

/summon ravager ~ ~ ~ minecraft:spawn_for_raid_with_evoker_rider

  • This command spawns an evoker riding a ravager.

/summon ravager ~ ~ ~ minecraft:spawn_with_pillager_rider

  • This command spawns a pillager riding a ravager.

/summon ravager ~ ~ ~ minecraft:spawn_with_vindicator_rider

  • This command spawns a vindicator riding a ravager.

/summon ravager ~ ~ ~ minecraft:spawn_for_raid_with_pillager_rider

  • This command spawns a pillager riding a ravager, but the pillager drops special loot upon death.

/summon ravager ~ ~ ~ minecraft:spawn_with_pillager_captain_rider

  • This command spawns a pillager riding a ravager, but the pillager is raid captain.

/summon ravager ~ ~ ~ minecraft:spawn_with_vindicator_captain_rider

  • This command spawns a vindicator riding a ravager, but the vindicator is raid captain.

Behavior[]

This section needs expansion. 
You can help by expanding it.

Ravager jockeys attack like normal ravagers and illagers. Fangs summoned by an evoker deal damage to the ravager as well, but the ravager doesn't fight back. If a vindicator has been named "Johnny", it may attack the ravager it's riding.‌[Java Edition only] A ravager deals 7♥♥♥♥ damage on easy mode. On hard mode, it deals 18♥ × 9 damage. When the ravager attacks, it deals knockback additionally. The ravager also pillages the majority of blocks found in a village, destroying them as it moves. The ravager jockey has 18.8 knockback resistance. Once the ravager jockey ventures into water that is 2 or more blocks deep, it dismounts its rider.


Each mounted ravager acts differently. The vindicator/evoker-mounted ravagers rush directly at the target, while the pillager-mounted ravagers stay in place while the pillager loads its crossbow. Evoker-mounted ravagers also slightly slow down while the evoker casts a spell. Illusioner-mounted ravagers do not move normally like an illusioner.
