Bedrock cannot be broken in survival mode without glitches. In Bedrock Edition, certain glitches can be used to obtain bedrock in Survival.[more information needed] In Java Edition it is impossible to obtain bedrock using normal means, but it can be acquired with some difficulty, using multiple glitches at once.
Bedrock comprises the five bottom-most layers of the Overworld in a rough pattern, although the first to fourth layers are predominantly flat bedrock with only rare gaps, rendering the lowest, completely flat fifth layer (at y=0) mostly inaccessible. In Java Edition, the patterns of bedrock are consistent in all worlds regardless of world seed (except Superflat). In Bedrock Edition, the patterns are dependent on the seed in the Overworld.
In the Nether, bedrock comprises both the top and bottom four layers in a rough pattern. In Bedrock Edition, the patterns of bedrock are consistent in the Nether. At the top of the Nether, bedrock prevents the player from going past y=127.
In the End, individual bedrock blocks make up the natural end crystal structure and the bedrock remains after the destruction of the crystal. Bedrock additionally forms as part of the exit portal that generates at the center of the central End island. In Bedrock Edition, if one manages to break the bedrock in the exit portal, the bedrock reappears when the portal regenerates.
End gateway portals are also generated upon killing the ender dragon. However, only 20 of these portals generate, in set positions, with one appearing per dragon kill. Additional end gateways are also generated in the outer End regions after activating end gateways at the main island.
Bedrock's primary usage is as a solid unbreakable block.
Mobs also do not spawn on bedrock.
Note Blocks can be placed above Bedrock to produce "bass drum" sounds.

In Bedrock Edition, bedrock uses the following block states:
|Name||Default value||Allowed values||Description|
|infiniburn_bit||Specifies if this bedrock can burn indefinitely.|
|Java Edition Classic|
|The world boundary is lined with a bedrock textured barrier. It is completely unbreakable.|
|0.0.20a||Bedrock no longer can be placed or destroyed, except by players on servers with operator permissions.|
|Operators can now destroy bedrock like any other block.|
|Operators can now use |
|If any player attempts to place bedrock using an item edited into their inventory, the server now kicks them, even if they are an operator.|

- It is possible, but rare, for ore to be found encased in bedrock.
- Strongholds can cause bedrock not to form within its bounds.
- From its addition in Classic through some versions of Alpha, bedrock's texture file was called
- The bedrock texture, regardless of the current default resource pack (Programmer Art or Default), is basically the stone block with really high contrast.
- Vexes and the ender dragon can fly through bedrock. Additionally, the ender dragon cannot break bedrock.
