About zombie villagers[edit]

Zombie villagers have a 5% chance to spawn in place of a regular zombie, and also if a zombie kills a regular villager, depending on the difficulty level. [0% on Easy, 50% on Normal, and 100% on Hard].

A villager and zombie villager also spawn inside an igloo basement and zombie village, and also from a spawn egg in creative mode.

Zombie villagers look like normal villagers and have clothes like normal villagers, but their behavior is like regular zombies.

Finding a zombie villager[edit]

Zombie villagers spawn naturally 10% in place of a regular zombie, or if a villager is being killed by a zombie, or in an igloo basement or zombie village.

While you see a zombie villager, you can either build a 2 block high pillar, or build a dirt house for it to cure it or another simple ways is to dig 2 or 3 deep holes then fill it with water, then lure zombie villagers to swim and they will sink underwater.

How to cure a zombie villager[edit]

  1. First, when you find a zombie villager, secure it in a safe area by, for example, placing a wood fence between the zombie villager and the player. This is just to prevent the zombie villager from attacking the player.
  2. Select the Splash Potion of Weakness in your hotbar.
  3. Point the crosshair at the zombie villager. Then, throw your splash potion on the zombie villager. Make sure you are not close to the place where the potion splashes, or you will inflict yourself with Weakness. The game control to use the potion depends on the version/edition you play on.
  4. If you are using arrow of weakness, then shoot it with a bow, crossbow, or dispenser.
  5. Then, the zombie villager will have the Weakness effect. While the zombie villager has the effect, select the golden apple on the hotbar.
  6. Feed the zombie villager the golden apple selected in the hotbar. You do this by pressing the same button as the button you press when you threw the potion of it.
  7. Done! The zombie villager will shake and will emit red particles before it turns into a regular villager. The process will take 2-5 minutes which can will a bit faster if near iron bars or beds, and you will obtain the Zombie Doctor achievement/advancement if you have not obtained it before. However, don't do it near other zombies, because they will just infect the cured villager and the player will have to do it all over again.
