Hero of the Village is a status effect granted to the player upon defeating a raid.


Players receive gifts‌[JE only] and discounts from villager trades while under the effect. In Bedrock Edition, the effect is active only if the player is in the village in which the raid has been defeated. It does not affect the wandering trader's trades.

In Bedrock Edition, upon the effect being given a short animation of the effect icon appearing on the screen plays, similar to a totem of undying.

Price decrement[edit]

Level I Hero of the Village decreases the cost of the first item in a trade by 30%; each additional level decreases the price by an additional 116 (6.25%), up to the 55% discount with a level V Hero of the Village. No matter how large the discount is, the final item count in the trade is always at least one, never zero. In other cases, the decrement is the discount ratio multiplied by the original count rounded down or rounded up if the decrement is less than 1.

Example: Level III would give a 42.5% discount. For trade with 14 emeralds as the cost, the discount would be 5 emeralds (rounded down from 5.95 emeralds), for a final price of 9 emeralds.

The formula can be written as Discounted price = Initial price - max[1, Initial Price × (.0625 × (Level - 1) + 0.3)].

Hero of the Village is a status effect and can be removed through all conventional methods, such as drinking milk, using Totem of Undying, or dying.‌‌[Java Edition only]
