Keys were a joke item from Java Edition 3D Shareware v1.34. There are three different keys: red, yellow, and blue.



Red keys can be found inside barrels that naturally generate throughout the world.

Mob drops[edit]

The red key was dropped by the wither, the yellow key was dropped by ravagers, and the blue key was dropped by the elder guardian.
