This feature is exclusive to Education Edition and Bedrock Edition.

The agent is a mob that helps players learn coding, by getting players to code the actions on the agent. The agent can be programmed to execute a lot of tasks, like planting and harvesting, mining, chopping trees, and building.


The agent is used in conjunction with Code Connection/Code Builder for Minecraft, and is programmable by a visual ScratchX interface.

The agent carries its own 27-item inventory, which can be manipulated by commands that the player programs it to use, or edited directly by a GUI that the player can access in-game.

The visual interface allows the player to drag and drop commands, structural constructs and other components into a sequence, and associate the sequence with a custom-named slash command, which can be executed in the traditional way, from the console.

The agent can push pressure plates, but cannot interact with buttons, levers or other right-click mechanisms like doors and gates.

  • The model of the agent is similar to that of iron golems, but is smaller, has a bigger head, and has a different texture.
  • The agent is seen in the official image of Minecraft: Education Edition.
  • The agent, along with the NPC, are the only mobs exclusive to the Education Edition.
    • Bedrock Edition also contains resources for the mob, however, the mob is unobtainable in game. By installing Code Connection, it is possible to use in Minecraft Windows 10 Edition.
  • On the free 10th-anniversary map that Mojang released, there is a puzzle in the "Library" area that involves controlling the Agent with glazed terracotta. On the Bedrock version of the map, the agent is added in as a new mob, while on Java, it is an armor stand with remodeled infested chiseled stone bricks on its head.
  • The agent spawn egg can be obtained with an NBT editor in Minecraft: Bedrock Edition.
