The end portal block is a block generated when an end portal or exit portal is activated, which teleports the player between the Overworld and the End.


In Java Edition, the end portal block cannot be obtained as an item. It can be placed only by using block placement commands such as /setblock, or simply by building End portals. In Bedrock Edition, it may be obtained as an item via inventory editing, add-ons or by using bugs.


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


  • End Portal blocks can be destroyed in Creative Mode. This does not affect adjacent End Portal blocks.
  • A portal block is invisible when viewed from underneath.[1]
  • End portals do not reduce fall damage. ‌[Java Edition only].
  • The top surface of an End portal is 34 the height of a full block.
  • The End portal is one of the only blocks without a conventional texture or entity texture; it instead duplicates and layers a starfield pattern.
  • If TNT is detonated on an end portal, no blocks in its blast radius are destroyed.
  • Ridden entities (and their riders) pass through the portal without being teleported.
  • The ender dragon cannot teleport through portals.
  • In Java Edition, the wither cannot teleport through portals, but can do so in Bedrock Edition.
  • If /setblock is used to place an End Portal block in the Overworld, Nether, or in a custom dimension, then the End Portal block teleports the player to the End dimension. If the End Portal block is placed in the End, then the End Portal block teleports the player to their spawn point.
  • Items can fall through an end portal, including falling blocks, such as TNT. The items appear in the End dimension.

Piston interactivity[edit]

End portal blocks cannot be pushed by pistons. They also cannot be pushed nor pulled by sticky pistons.
