Since the beginning of Minecraft's development, there have been a number of features added to the game that have little to no actual use. Some of these features are leftovers from removed features, or simply placeholders for new features in future updates.

Mechanics[edit]

Enchantments[edit]

This is a list of unused features related to enchantments.

Enchant anything[edit]

In Bedrock Edition, players cannot enchant a block or item; only tools, weapons, and armor can be enchanted, even if the player is in creative mode. However, it is possible to apply enchantments to non-enchantable items or blocks using an NBT editor. By using an NBT editor, it is possible to apply enchantments that cannot be applied in-game normally, such as Fire Aspect on flint and steel. It is also possible to add multiple enchantments that are not compatible with each other such as Smite and Bane of Arthropods to a sword. Although the /enchant command in Bedrock Edition cannot enchant pass the maximum level limit, it is possible to enchant items with a higher level than the max limit via the NBT editor.

Game Mode[edit]

Spectator Mode[edit]

Spectator mode was added in an unknown version sometime before added to Java edition, but it cannot be entered by using commands and world settings. Spectator mode used to be accessible through servers where your inventory would be filled with dandelions that you could not replace or place. It can only be entered by using an NBT editor and Players in spectator mode cannot spectate other entities.

Loot Table[edit]

Mobs[edit]

In vanilla behavior packs, there is a loot table for the giant, a mob that cannot be spawned in Bedrock Edition.

Chest Loot[edit]

Old Village

New Village architecture is no longer behind Experimental gameplay in 1.11.0, which consists of new chest loot. However. old village chest loot has not been removed, but has become unused. This old loot consists of:

Blocks and items[edit]

Old grass block[edit]

There existed a block that looked like a grass block back in early Pocket Edition, resembling it in all ways with the only difference being the side texture was also used on the bottom.

Old Stonecutter[edit]

Stonecutter (Old) BE1.png

Bedrock Edition 1.10.0 introduced the stonecutter with the model and texture similar to the Java Edition stonecutter, however, the new stonecutter does not replace the old stonecutter, as the old stonecutter was only removed from the creative inventory and commands. It is still available if the player already had it in a world prior to 1.10.0 or uses inventory editing.

Lava in Cauldron[edit]

Cauldrons can be used to store lava, but always filled by 33 level. However, using /setblock or /fill command with different data values can obtain a cauldron with 15 through 45 level filled by lava, which normally can't happen due to the fact that dyeing leather armor and filling glass bottles isn't possible with lava.

Glowing Obsidian[edit]

Glowing Obsidian BE1.png

Glowing Obsidian blocks were part of the (now obsolete) Nether reactor. It emits a soft red glow at light level 12, and drops a single obsidian when broken with a diamond pickaxe. It can only be obtained using inventory editors or a Silk Touch enchanted pickaxe. As of 0.12.1, this block doesn't generate anymore. The block may still be obtained using inventory editors or by retaining it from previous worlds before the update.

reserved6[edit]

A block which at one point replaced fire, and was moved to a different data value upon fire's reimplementation.

Nether Reactor Core[edit]

Nether Reactor Core.png

The functionality of the Nether Reactor was removed in Pocket Edition v0.12.1 alpha. However, the reactor core block still exists in-game and can be obtained through inventory editing or by retaining it from previous worlds before the update. It now drops its ingredients (unless mined with Silk Touch), allowing players to recover them. Prior to v0.12.1, they were used to activate the nether reactor. Tapping on it would activate the reactor if built correctly. When the core is activated for the nether reactor structure, the cobblestone and the blocks of gold are both replaced with Glowing Obsidian.

Paintings[edit]

There are four 2×2 tile paintings with no clear purpose or use. Using IDA and the Android libminecraftpe.so file, it has been found that the paintings are referenced from the game code, particularly in the Motive::getAllMotivesAsList(void) method (get all paintings), but the Painting::setRandomMotive(int) method excludes them as possibilities for a random painting. The artist and purpose of these paintings are both unknown.

Canvas Size Name Description
Earth painting.png 2×2 blocks
32×32 pixels
Earth A light brown square on a brown background.
Water painting.png 2×2 blocks
32×32 pixels
Water Split in half with a jagged line, the bottom half is light blue, and the top half is blue.

Please help the Minecraft Wiki clean up this page if you can.
The specific problem is: section

(More info needed)

The update game block was a placeholder for the magma block before it came out. It was available for the outdated version of 1.13.0 in Bedrock Edition. It could only be seen if the player was playing with a friend on 1.13.0 and their device wasn't updated. Players can still get this by placing an Education Edition block, then disabling Education Edition. It wasn't called the update game block either, the name used numbers and letters. It can be found if a friend runs a world on a newer version and all added blocks on that version will have this texture.

Fake Wood Slab[edit]

Before unique slabs corresponding to different wooden planks types were added, oak wooden slabs were treated like other stone-type slabs. They required a pickaxe to break, had a blast resistance greater than normal planks, had stone sounds and fire could not spread to them. They are still obtainable in worlds, which had them in it previously. They are tagged as Wooden Slab, reflecting on the fact oak was the only wood type in plank form. In Pocket Edition, until Alpha 0.11.0, they are tagged as Fake Wood Slab, and will drop normal oak wood slabs when broken. This slab is still obtainable with commands, with damage value 2 and block type wood_old. It has a missing texture in the inventory. These were never truly exclusive to the Bedrock Edition, as they are essentially a parallel to the block in Java Edition; only the name and drops were unique.

Double Slab Block[edit]

Double slab blocks drop two corresponding slabs when broken. Most of them look identical to their full block variant. These blocks can be obtained using inventory editing or commands. These blocks are tile.double.<type>slab. The blocks are:

  • Double Brick Slab
  • Double Oak Slab
  • Double Birch Slab
  • Double Spruce Slab
  • Double Jungle Slab
  • Double Acacia Slab
  • Double Dark Oak Slab
  • Double Stone Slab
  • Double Sandstone Slab
  • Double Red Sandstone Slab
  • Double Cobblestone Slab
  • Double Stone Brick slab
  • Double Nether Brick Slab
  • Double Quartz Slab
  • Double Purpur Slab
  • Double Prismarine Slab
  • Double Dark Prismarine Slab
  • Double Prismarine Brick Slab
  • Double Smooth Stone Slab
  • Double Red Nether Brick Slab
  • Double Andesite Slab
  • Double Polished Andesite Slab
  • Double Cut Sandstone Slab
  • Double Smooth Sandstone Slab
  • Double Cut Red Sandstone Slab
  • Double Smooth Red Sandstone Slab
  • Double Diorite Slab
  • Double Polished Diorite Slab
  • Double Granite Slab
  • Double Polished Granite Slab
  • Double Smooth Quartz Slab
  • Double Mossy Cobblestone Slab

There is also a double slab that is unused;

  • Double Fake Wooden Slab – which shares some similarities with its single slab version.

More Explorer Maps[edit]

Despite ocean explorer maps, woodland explorer and buried treasure maps being the only explorer maps that can be obtained in game, other explorer maps actually exist in the game files, and can only be obtained via inventory editing. These maps being:

  • Village Explorer Map: Shows the nearest village; the reason why this map is not obtainable is because it sometimes shows the nearest village from player, and is sold by the cartographer villager, who also spawns in the village, which makes this explorer map essentially useless, as it shows the current location of the village that the player just found.
  • Mineshaft Explorer Map: Shows the nearest abandoned mineshaft, for normal or mesa variant.
  • Temple Explorer Map: Shows one of these structures if they're nearby:
    • Jungle Pyramid
    • Desert Pyramid
    • Igloo
    • Swamp Hut
  • Stronghold Explorer Map: Shows the nearest stronghold. This explorer map will often lead the player to a village, because strongholds in Bedrock Edition have a high chance to generate underneath a village's well or meeting point. This can be an alternative way to find strongholds beside using an eye of ender.
  • Ruins Explorer Map: Shows the nearest ocean ruins.
  • Shipwreck Explorer Map: Shows the nearest shipwreck.
  • Pillager Outpost Explorer Map: Shows the nearest pillager outpost.
  • Fortress Explorer Map: Shows the nearest nether fortress. Unlike other explorer maps, this map uses the Nether map layout, instead of the explorer map layout, which is a static gray color with a destination pointer that stays in one place but spinning wildly like the player pointer.
  • End City Explorer Map: Shows nearest end city. Unlike other explorer maps, this map uses the End map layout, instead of the explorer map layout.

These explorer maps, named Unknown Maps, have the same scale as the woodland and ocean explorer maps. However, when held, its name is changed to Map 0 and shows a green triangle to mark the destination structure. These explorer maps have normal map textures but have the same layout as a woodland and ocean explorer maps, which are brown. They use stripes for bodies of water, and a sort of tan color for landmasses. If the player obtains these unused explorer maps in an incorrect dimension, ex: obtaining a fortress explorer map in the Overworld, will cause the game to freeze and/or eventually crash.

Potions and Tipped Arrows[edit]

Some potions are unobtainable in normal gameplay, they appear in 3 different types: drinkable potions, splash potions, and lingering potions. Each potion also has its own respective tipped arrow variant, they are:

  • Potion of Haste
  • Potion of Dullness
  • Potion of Blindness
  • Potion of Resistance
  • Potion of Absorption
  • Potion of Health Boost
  • Potion of Confusion
  • Potion of Levitation

Tipped Arrows[edit]

Besides the tipped arrows that are created from unused potions, some tipped arrows are also unused. These tipped arrows do not give any effects when shot at an entity. These arrows are tipped arrows from base potions:

  • Arrow of Water
  • Arrow of Mundane
  • Arrow of Long Mundane
  • Arrow of Thick
  • Arrow of Awkward

Purpur Blocks[edit]

There are unused data values of the purpur block that have the same texture as the normal purpur block and can only be obtained by /give or inventory editing. These are:

  • 1 - Chiseled Purpur
  • 3 - tile.purpur_block.smooth.name (which seems to be Smooth Purpur)

Textures[edit]

There are no items, placeable blocks, or /summon mobs for these, as they only appear as textures, meaning they are currently without use in-game. Note that some of these are from the Education Edition of Minecraft, which their textures still exist in Bedrock Edition.

Blocks[edit]

Barrel[edit]

Fish Barrel (texture) BE1.png Empty Barrel (texture) BE1.png There are unused top textures of barrels, one is filled with fish, the other is similar in appearance to the "open" state.

Chalkboard[edit]

Chalkboard comes in 3 variants: Slate, poster, and board.

Camera[edit]

The camera's texture still remains, despite it no longer existing as a block, although it was re-added in beta 1.12.0.2, being obtainable with the /give command, but only as item. However, the ability to get the camera using commands was removed again in beta 1.13.0.1. It is used to take photos because back then, phones didn't have the ability to take screenshots. Cameras are once again obtainable with /give in beta 1.16.100.54, and can now take screenshots.

Cyan flower[edit]

A cyan flower.

The cyan flower was removed from the game, but its texture still remains as flower_rose_blue.png

Items[edit]

Items from Education Edition[edit]

Items that were added during v0.16.0 development versions:

  • All Chalkboards
    • Slate
    • Poster
    • Board
  • Camera Block

Portfolio[edit]


The Portfolio was an item that can save photos that were taken with the camera.

Chalkboard[edit]


Comes in all 3 variants: Slate, poster, and board.

Camera[edit]

The camera item takes a screenshot and saves it to the internal storage of the device the game is being played on.

Spawn Agent[edit]

Spawn Mask[edit]

Minecart with Furnace[edit]


The minecart with furnace exists in Java Edition, while in Bedrock Edition it only appears as an inventory icon texture.

Quiver[edit]


The quiver was going to be used to hold arrows, but it was never implemented; Dinnerbone said that holding arrows in the offhand felt more natural.[1]

Ruby[edit]

Rubies were supposed to be in the game but a developer couldn’t tell the difference between it and redstone.

Hoglin Meat[edit]

Raw Beef JE4 BE3.png Steak JE3 BE2.png

In 1.16.0, two textures named hoglin_meat_raw and hoglin_meat_cooked were added. They are textured identically to raw beef and cooked beef, respectively.

Entities and Mobs[edit]

Gray Tabby Cat[edit]

Tamed Gray Tabby Cat with Red Collar.png

In the vanilla resource pack, a texture file for a gray tabby cat exists. However, it is completely unused and cannot be spawned in-game.

Tamed Ocelot[edit]

In the vanilla resource pack, textures exist, along with the other cat textures, for an ocelot texture, as well as the texture for a tamed ocelot. Again, it is completely unused and can't be spawned in-game.

Old Nitwit Villager and Old Nitwit Zombie Villager[edit]

Nitwit villagers have existed in Bedrock Edition from earlier versions alongside its zombie villager version, but remain unused. Its texture still exists in the game files. Nitwit villager and zombie villager added in 1.10.0 but they are new villagers with a different ID and texture, which means the old nitwit villager and zombie villager textures are unused.

Other[edit]

Old Pocket Edition Panorama[edit]

As of the Bedrock Edition 1.2.0 update, the Bedrock Edition uses a new panorama background, but the old panorama before 1.2.0 was not removed.

As of 1.5.0, the panorama changed to reflect Update Aquatic. The background panorama from 1.2.0 - 1.4.0 was removed, while the old panorama texture still exists.

Even in 1.8.0, when the background panorama changed again to pandas and cats in the jungle, the old panorama texture still remains in the game, although it is unobtainable.

Again in 1.11.0, when background panorama changed to Village & Pillage, the old panorama texture still remains in the game, although it's not used.

In 1.14.0, the background panorama updated to reflect the Buzzy Bees update. The old panorama texture still remains in the game, however it is not used.

Again in 1.16.0, when background panorama changed to reflect the Nether Update, the old panorama texture still remains in the game, although it's not used.

Status effects[edit]

Some of the status effects in Bedrock Edition are unobtainable and can only be obtained using inventory editing or /effect.

Health Boost[edit]

Health Boost was added to the game in v0.12.0. It gives extra health that can regenerate. It can only be obtained with commands.

World generation[edit]

Nether in Old World Type[edit]

Nether Portals cannot be activated in the Old world type unless converted to the infinite world type.

As of Alpha 0.16.0 build 5, commands can be used by players to access the Nether in the Old world type without converting it to Infinite by using commands /setblock or /fill with the Nether Portal.

The Nether in the Old world type looks like the normal Nether but limited in size. It is the same size as the Overworld, which is 256×256 with 128 block height. However, the Nether and the Overworld may have the same size, but traveling 1 block in the nether will still be equal to traveling 8 blocks in the Overworld. This is a problem that can make the game freeze or crash, which is the reason why the Nether can not be accessed in the old world type. When the player goes to the Nether, a new Nether portal will generate naturally in the Overworld, because a portal placed with commands is not counted. However, the player cannot make a nether portal normally.

End in Old World Type[edit]

The End Dimension was added, and alongside it the End in the old world type. The End cannot be accessed because strongholds never generate in the Old world type and building an end portal also will not work. The only way to access it is via block-placement commands such as /setblock and /fill.

Unlike the Nether in old worlds, which can generate all structures, The End in the Old only generates the main island and not the outer islands, due to the size limit of 256×256.

However, sometimes the End in the Old world type generates improperly, resulting in the central island not generating due to the border. If this happens, the ender dragon may get stuck in mid-air at the border, and the exit portal only generates cut in half or cease to appear. The end gateway portal is also nonfunctional, due to the size limit.

These problems are the reasons why the End dimension is normally inaccessible, as the only way to go back to the Overworld is via cheats or death.

Biomes[edit]

Biome Name and ID Features Description Images

Mountain Edge
20

Temperature: 0.2

Grass, Dirt, Stone, Pigs, Sheep, Infested stone, Emerald ore, Llama, Cows, Spruce trees, Oak trees, Snow (occasionally)

Similar to the jungle edge biome, the mountain edge used to generate exclusively at the edge of mountain biomes (or any variant) in order to smooth the transition between biomes. While the terrain is lower and gentler in nature, some areas may reach high enough to be covered by snow. This biome looks like a forested area, similar to wooded mountains and taiga but with lower terrain elevation and few oak trees. This biome doesn't naturally generate from Pocket Edition v0.9.0 alpha onward. Mountain Edge.png

Warm Deep Ocean
44

Temperature: 0.5
Dolphins, Pufferfish, Tropical fish, Warm ocean ruins, Sand, seagrass, kelp, Ocean monuments, Guardians, Elder guardians, shipwreck
Similar to warm ocean biomes, but without coral reefs nor sea pickles, and twice as deep. Because they are a deep ocean variant, they can generate ocean monuments, resulting in the spawning of guardians, elder guardians, prismarine, and sponges. This biome has never naturally generated. Deep Warm Ocean.png

Legacy Frozen Ocean

-116

Temperature: 0.0
Polar Bears, Salmon, Skeletons, Strays, Cold ocean ruins, Gravel, Snowy Rabbits, Ice, shipwrecks, Kelp, Drowned
Similar to frozen ocean biomes, but without icebergs. Because they are a frozen ocean variant, they can spawn polar bears and strays but not dolphins. However, unlike regular frozen ocean, this biome also spawns rabbits and has kelp. This biome does not naturally generate from Pocket Edition v0.9.0 alpha onward. Strays, drowned, and skeletons are the only monsters that can spawn in this biome, no other monster can spawn except from a spawner. Legacy Frozen Ocean.png

Custom Superflats[edit]

There is an NBT string in every level.dat file called "FlatWorldLayers", which when edited properly, can cause the respective world to generate custom layers. This is used when Custom Superflats created on Legacy Console Editions get converted over to Bedrock Edition.

Other[edit]

5th Giant Tree Taiga biome variants[edit]

The file biome_client.json contained a biome name which never existed in game.

"mega_taiga": {
      "water_surface_color": "#2d6d77",
      "water_fog_color": "#2d6d77"
    },
    "mega_spruce_taiga": {
      "water_surface_color": "#2d6d77",
      "water_fog_color": "#2d6d77"
    },
    "mega_taiga_mutated": {
      "water_surface_color": "#2d6d77",
      "water_fog_color": "#2d6d77"
    },
    "mega_spruce_taiga_mutated": {
      "water_surface_color": "#2d6d77",
      "water_fog_color": "#2d6d77"
    },
    "mega_taiga_hills": {
      "water_surface_color": "#286378",
      "water_fog_color": "#286378"
    },

Out of 5 giant tree taiga biomes, only 4 can generate in the game while another one only appears in this code, as that biome is not defined in vanilla behavior pack at biomes folder. It is unknown if this biome was a dropped feature or not.

Colors:
 #2d6d77
 #286378

World settings[edit]

level.dat contains several player abilities. Most of these are used in multiplayer, to determine who has what permissions. However, some are completely inaccessible without an NBT editor. With the exception of permissionsLevel, none of these settings can be altered in-game for the world itself, only for individual players. The flying changes in-game as players toggle flight mode, but cannot be altered manually without editing.

If a zombie villager is wearing armor, the helmet will be struck through its head, the chestplate and leggings can only be seen through holes in their clothes, while the boots look normal.

Wither Skeleton Archer[edit]

If a wither skeleton is equipped with a bow, it will use it as a ranged weapon, and arrows shot will always be set on fire regardless of what enchantment it has, or if it has an enchantment. However, wither skeleton archers cannot spawn naturally.

Wither Jockey[edit]

Spider Wither Jockey.png

Spiders spawned in the Nether have a 1% chance of spawning while being ridden by a skeleton, which have an 80% of being a wither skeleton and a 20% of a normal skeleton. However, since spiders cannot naturally spawn in the Nether, this mob is unused. Instead, it can be spawned using spider spawn eggs in Creative mode. Wither jockeys also have a cave spider variant. It can also be spawned with commands.

Zombie Horse[edit]

Zombie horses can only be spawned using its spawn egg or /summon, as it cannot spawn naturally.

Zombie Horse Jockey (and Variants)[edit]

These jockeys (see below) are unused since zombie horses cannot spawn naturally.

  • Zombie horse jockey
    • Baby Zombie riding Zombie Horse
  • Husk Zombie Horse Jockey
    • Baby Husk riding Zombie Horse
  • Zombie Villager riding Zombie Horse Jockey
    • Baby Zombie Villager riding Zombie Horse

Baby Trader Llama[edit]

Trader llamas were added in beta 1.11.0.1, which at that time were breedable and could spawn a baby. However, as of beta 1.11.0.3, trader llamas no longer spawn naturally as babies since they are no longer breedable, causing the baby trader llama to become unused.

Ravagers[edit]

Some Ravager with riders do not spawn naturally and can only be summoned using /summon:

  • Vindicator riding Ravager
  • Pillager Captain riding Ravager
  • Vindicator Captain riding Ravager

Agent[edit]

Agent.png

The agent was added in alpha 0.17.0.1, although it was hidden in the .apk file of the game. However, it is still used in conjunction with Code Connection.

NPC[edit]

NPC5pre.png

The NPC was added in v0.16.0 Build 1; although, it was removed in v0.16.0 Build 2 leaving their savegame ID and spawn egg.

The NPC was re-added again in beta 1.8.0.8, they currently have no functionality as of in this version. They can be spawned using /summon.

Their spawn egg can only be obtained via /give <player> spawn_egg 1 51.

While they can be spawned using /summon, the player can do it also with NBT editors, they currently have the dialog screen for members and editing screen for players with the Operator permission or players with world builder permission.

Camera[edit]

Camera.png

The camera was first found in the Pocket Edition v0.1.0 alpha .apk file, as of this version, the camera has functionality.

As of v0.9.0, the camera entity was removed. Tommaso stated "It doesn't mean that it's dead forever, in fact, I have a lot of ideas for it! I think it will be back when have shaders, sharing and redstone."

The camera was re-added in alpha v0.14.0, only accessible with inventory editors, but was removed again in alpha v0.16.0. However, the block can still be obtained in servers.

Cameras were added again in beta 1.8.0.8, but it requires mob editing to summon it or using an NBT editor to get its spawn egg. The camera can now be obtained using /give as of beta 1.12.0.2.

In beta 1.13.0.1, this item can be used by slide while using the item, the take picture sound can be heard and an explosion can be seen and a picture is saved to LocalState/screenshots folder on Windows 10 or /storage/emulated/0/screenshots folder on Android. However The camera no longer obtainable using /give

As of beta 1.16.100.54, Camera can once again obtainable using /give.

Old Villager[edit]

Old villagers, prior to the Village and Pillage update are still available in the game, but they are instantly converted into villager_v2 (new villagers). Their spawn egg can only be obtained via /give spawn_egg 1 15. However, trying to spawn them with that spawn egg will spawn an old villager which is instantly killed. A new villager will then spawn and take its place.

However, in template worlds that have old villagers in them, the villagers will remain as old villagers with their old texture without conversion, and they will still behave normally (as v1 villagers).

Their trade tables were not removed, even though trading GUI has changed between Village and Pillage and prior updates.

Elder Guardian Ghost[edit]

The elder guardian ghost is a new unused mob added in beta 1.13.0.4. Its file isn't included in the behavior pack, and it can only be spawned using the command /summon elder_guardian_ghost ~ ~ ~. The elder guardian ghost has the same model and texture as the elder guardian, but uses the player hurt sound, has less health, and is missing the back tail model. When spawned outside of water, it will float upward till it despawns, similar to a mob tied to a balloon, or under a high level of levitation effect, but it will clip through blocks. The guardian ghost itself isn't immune from suffocation damage.

If an elder guardian ghost is spawned underwater, it will slowly sink downward, clip through all blocks (including bedrock), until it eventually it falls into the void and dies. When underwater, the elder guardian ghost can rotate its body, look at players, and swim while slowly sinking downward.
