MHF_Guardian is apparently also non-official[edit]

According to this Reddit thread where someone else claims to own it. Anomie x (talk) 00:45, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

That is helpful to know, though I don't think it was ever added to our list. A note to prevent it from being added in the future cannot hurt though. KnightMiner t/c 00:56, 28 April 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, that was my intention. Anomie x (talk) 11:01, 28 April 2015 (UTC)

MHF_Apple Head[edit]

I looked up "minecraft enderman head" and found a page that mentioned apple heads. It worked (/give), but it doesn't mention it on this page. That makes me think: maybe there's more? I even found a cat one on my own that has a Santa hat (MHF_Cat). EDIT: I also just remembered that the page mentioning apple heads also mentioned dirt (and other blocks) heads –Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 17:39, 29 December 2015 (UTC).

Unofficial per this tweet. -BDJP (t|c) 17:48, 29 December 2015 (UTC)

Give Player Head[edit]

Is there a way to give each player their own head?

--MCweb 02:20, 28 June 2016 (UTC)

The data values section here is bad or out-of-date, and to fix it properly I'll have to dig around, maybe tomorrow. The command that gets your own head is:
/give @p skull 1 3 {SkullOwner:YourUserName}
Each getting their own, I'm not sure.

That works fine in versions up to 1.12.2, but no more in 1.13 due to change in syntax of /give in 17w45a. Should that be mentioned in the page? –Erufailon4 (talk) 16:02, 11 December 2017 (UTC)
If strings were included in 1.13's execute store functionality, this would be possible.

Possibly Legit MHF Heads[edit]

I found the following Heads also work but they could just be players MHF_Shulker MHF_Witch MHF_Wolf MHF_Guardian MHF_Rabbit MHF_Endermite MHF_Wither MHF_Enderdragon MHF_SnowGolem MHF_Llama MHF_Stray MHF_Wither(MHF_WitherBoss was a players head and not legit) It would be great if someone could verify if they are legit or not.–Preceding unsigned comment was added by (talk) at 5 October 2016 (UTC).

Wither in PE[edit]

Can someone add that in 0.16 of PE you can make the wither with wither skeleton skulls? I would like to do it myself, but I'm not an expert at editing tables. Thanks!

Thanks, yeah, I put it on this page, and on the soul sand page. – Sealbudsman talk/contr 03:26, 3 November 2016 (UTC)

Head NBT Questions[edit]

What does the signature tag do? How many textures can a head have? Can it have textures but not a UUID? Is the value tag still a base64-encoded image URL?

Obtaining player/dragon heads[edit]

There are apparently two contradictions. Number one:

 Mob heads can be broken using anything, and will drop itself when broken.
 Dragon heads generate on end ships.

So dragon heads can be obtained from end ships, but there is also the following statement:

 dragon heads cannot be obtained as drops.

You can absolutely acquire the dragon heads used as figureheads at the bow of End ships in v1.12.2. I can imagine that the statement which denies it was meant for killing Ender dragons, but this is not clearly expressed. I don't know if it's actually true or false.

Number two:

 Player heads [...] cannot be obtained as drops.

But it is also said that:

 If a player head has a custom skin, the skin will be preserved when broken.

If there are no player head drops, why would the skin matter? Is something missing here about a game rule, server setting or mod required for player head drops? —Codemanx (talk) 13:36, 28 June 2018 (UTC)

Player and dragon heads are never dropped when players or ender dragons are killed. They can be obtained by other means (commands or naturally generated in the world, for dragon heads), so the information about their behavior as blocks is relevant. -- Orthotopetalk 21:32, 28 June 2018 (UTC)
