This article is about the effect. For the boss, see Wither.

The Wither effect is a status effect that can be induced by the Wither, Wither Skeletons, or the unimplemented Potion of Decay. When under the effects of Wither, a player will lose health at a rate slightly slower than that of poison, except the health bar will turn black so a player cannot see how much health they've lost. Wither also may kill a player, unlike poison. Like all potion effects, it can be cured with Milk.


  • When using the /effect command, Wither's ID is 20. This is beloved by players who love to troll by looking to Wither other players, but is usually reserved to operators.
