Invisibility is a status effect that turns entities invisible. Invisibility is a status effect that does not change its power as its potency changes.

Mechanics[edit]

The visible parts of a decorated llama, an enderman, a saddled pig, a shulker, a charged creeper and a spider.

Causes the mob to visually disappear (the mob has not actually disappeared; it just cannot be seen). Bosses are immune to invisibility. Certain features of entities are not affected by invisibility:

Causes[edit]

Potion of Invisibility I 3:00 Wandering Traders drink this potion when attacked by hostile mobs or when avoiding zombies and illagers.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Illusioner I 1:00 Only applies to illusioners when casting the invisibility spell
Spawning within the world ? ? Only applies to spiders on Hard difficulty

Immune mobs[edit]

Only boss mobs are immune to Invisibility.[needs testing]

Notes[edit]

  • Mobs will not attack or sense the player until the player is much closer than normal. A player with no armor will be detected at 7% of the usual detection distance. Any single piece of armor increases this to 17.5% of the usual distance, and each additional piece increases this by another 17.5%. After detecting the player, a mob will continue to follow as it does when the player is not invisible.
  • Additional methods of reducing detection by mobs include:
    • Sneaking reduces the detection range to 80% of usual, and stacks with Invisibility.
    • Wearing the corresponding mob head reduces the detection range of skeletons, zombies, and creepers to 50% of usual, and stacks with Invisibility.
  • Players in Spectator mode will see invisible entities as translucent instead.
