The Wraith appears to be an undead ghost-like mob that resembles a skeleton but composed of a skull and a small rib cage. It wears a blue hood over itself that glows and has two small hands.
The Wraith can naturally be found in the Highblock Halls, the Underhalls, the Desert Temple, the Lower Temple, the Creeper Woods and the Creepy Crypt if on Adventure and Apocalypse mode. It can also be summoned by Necromancers and by the Wretched Wraith if on Adventure and Apocalypse mode. It can also be found in an ambush in a secret castle-like place in the Frosted Fjord.
The Wraith attacks the player by creating 3 by 3 area of scorching blue flames on the ground under the player that burn the player and cause damage over time.
Stunning the Wraith while it is attacking allows the player to cancel its attack.
The Wraith can teleport away from players if they get too close, they are immune to their own blue flames and enchanted fire from other mobs, they follow players so they never lose their target and if on low health they will teleport away.
- The blue flames the wraith summons appears to be soul fire. Minecraft Dungeons was announced, and in development, quite some time before the Nether Update and soul fire were announced, however.
- Some of the sounds resemble that of a ghast from the base game.
