The End portal block is a block that generates when an End portal is formed. Standing in them will teleport the player from the Overworld to the End, and vice versa.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

The End portal block cannot be obtained as an item. It can only be placed using the /setblock command, or by building End portals.

Usage[edit | edit source]

End portal blocks can be used to teleport into and out of the End. When a player or other entity in the Overworld or the End stands in an End portal block, it is instantly taken to the other dimension. If a single portal block is placed using commands, it can still be used to travel between dimensions.

All entities traveling to the End will appear on the obsidian platform, recreating it if necessary. Players traveling to the Overworld will appear at their individual spawn point, while other entities will appear at the world spawn point.

Properties[edit | edit source]

  • End Portal blocks can be destroyed in Creative Mode, or by replacing them with water. This does not affect adjacent End Portal blocks.
  • If a portal block is viewed from underneath, it will be invisible.
  • End portals don't reduce fall damage.
  • The End Portal is technically the only block without a conventional texture, or entity texture; it uses the same image as the background of The End, with an additional effect added on top.[Verify]
  • If TNT is detonated on an end portal, no blocks in its blast radius will be destroyed.
  • Ridden entities (and their riders) will pass through the portal without being teleported.

Data values[edit | edit source]
