Name

air

Air is a block in Minecraft used to represent unoccupied spaces.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

Air cannot be kept in the inventory and can only be destroyed or created by the placement or removal of other blocks respectively.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Most generated structures generate air. Air is also generated in any space not occupied by another block.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Air and non-solid blocks are the only spaces the player and other mobs are allowed to move within without suffocating. The sole exception is the Ender Dragon which can move within all blocks, although it will destroy most blocks it moves within if the mobGriefing gamerule is on.

History[edit | edit source]

Indev
Air affected liquid blocks that were horizontally adjacent to it. If air was touching the fluid block, there was a ⅔ chance the fluid block would disappear and make the pool recede and a ⅓ chance the fluid block would fill the air, making the pool spread.
