Commands/kill

From Minecraft Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Kills entities (players, mobs, items, etc.).

Syntax
  • Java Edition
kill <target>
  • Bedrock Edition
kill [target: target]
Arguments
player|entity (BE: target: target)
Specifies the target(s) to be killed (including "non-living" entities like items, vehicles, etc.). Must be a player name or a target selector. In Java Edition 1.13, the target(s) must be specified, or the command will not work. The target is not optional in command blocks, too.
Result
Fails if player|entity fails to resolve to one or more entities (named players must be online).
On success, directly kills non-living targets, or inflicts 3.4 x 1038 void damage to living targets — even if they are protected by a high-level Resistance effect or by a Totem of undying — and issues the appropriate death message. Players and mobs killed this way drop loot, and slimes and magma cubes that aren't already of minimum size spawn smaller ones. Destroys boats, minecarts, loose items and experience orbs if they are targeted.
Examples
To kill yourself: kill[Bedrock Edition only] or kill @s
To kill the player Bob: kill Bob
To kill item entities: kill @e[type=item]
To kill all entities, including yourself: kill @e
To kill all entities but players: kill @e[type=!player]
