Item ID:mob_head

The mob head is a decorative item. It comes in 5 types, Zombie, Skeleton, Creeper, Ender dragon, and player skin.

Obtaining

Mob heads can be mined with anything, but using a pickaxe is fastest.

Charged Creepers

Charged creepers, which are creepers that have been struck by lightning, cause Zombies, Skeletons and Creepers to drop their heads upon death.

Commands

Commands can be used to give the player a mob head. For example, the command give mob_head 1 0 {type:"enderdragon"} can be used to obtain the dragon head, and is currently the only way of obtaining it. The command give mob_head 5 0 {type:1} can be used to obtain 5 Frank mob heads.

Commands are the only way of obtaining mob heads for custom skins. The command give mob_head 1 0 {type:66091} gives the player a Santa mob head, for example. The id for an individual skin is found on its skin page in the skins menu.

Creative Inventory

Through the creative inventory, Zombie, Skeleton, Creeper, Ender dragon, and player mob heads can be obtained, though the only player mob head available there is the one for Frank, which is skin 1.

Usage

Mob heads can be placed. They can face two directions, left or right.

The Ender dragon head can be powered by redstone, which makes it play an opening and closing mouth animation.

Data Values

Item Data

Mob heads use the type item tag to determine which mob head it is. A mob head with an unrecognised type defaults to a zombie head. If the type is a skin id that does not exist, it displays the zombie head, however is not called "Zombie Head" it still holds the id, so it is not technically a zombie head and does not stack with others.

Here is a list of all the mob head types:

Mob head type
Zombie "zombie"
Skeleton "skeleton"
Creeper "creeper"
Ender dragon "enderdragon"
Any skin The skin's numerical id (eg. 1327)

Block Data

Mob heads use the facing block tag when placed:

Orientation facing
Left "left"
Right "right"

Placed mob heads also use the same type tag as the item to store the type of mob head:

Mob head type
Zombie "zombie"
Skeleton "skeleton"
Creeper "creeper"
Ender dragon "enderdragon"
Any skin The skin's numerical id (eg. 1327)

Trivia

  • The command summon spawnskin 1 ~ ~ {skin:SKIN_ID,drops:[{item:{id:"mob_head",type:SKIN_ID}}]} where you replace SKIN_ID with the id of the skin, can be used to summon a skin that drops its own head upon death.
