The Ender Dragon is the first boss of Minecraft. It has 200 health. It appears in the End, and defeating it is the only way to exit the End, apart from dying. The Ender Dragon can fly, has glowing purple eyes, appears with lots of Endermen, cannot teleport, and is extremely dangerous. It swoops at the player, which is the only time you can damage it. When you hit it, it will fly off. It is also advised to destroy the Ender Crystals that heal the dragon every time it passes. If the dragon is being healed by the tower while the crystals are smashed, it will take some damage due to the explosion. It can smash through any sort of defensive structure a player in survival can create without stopping.
- If a Potion of Night Vision is used, the dragon will appear white. If no potion is used, it will look gray or black.
- It is unknown if the dragon is evil or if it doesn't like the player in its domain, the End.
- If the dragon is far enough away, it will be only a gray silhouette.
- The dragon can fly over The Void.
- In the Xbox 360 Edition, the exit portal is already there but not lit.
- Even though it is "Ender," the dragon cannot teleport, unlike its minion Endermen. The dragon may be powered up before the possible addition of Red Dragons, so this is possibly only for now.
- Sometimes the entrance portal will already have eyes of ender in it.
- The creature is one of the few mobs without a spawn egg.
- The Ender Dragon can make Endermen aggressive against it while swooping low to attack the player if it hits them.
