Smite is an enchantment applied to a sword or axe, increasing the damage dealt to undead mobs.

Usage[edit]

Smite applied to a sword or axe increases damage dealt to skeletons, zombies, zombie villagers, withers, wither skeletons, zombified piglins, skeleton horses, zombie horses, strays, husks, phantoms, drowned, and zoglins.

Each level separately adds 2.5♥ × 1.25 extra damage on each hit to undead mobs.

These tables detail how much damage is done per attack based on the level of enchantment used, assuming the target is not wearing armor and the attack is fully charged.‌[Java Edition only] Critical damage is in parentheses.
