The dragon egg is a decorative block, or a "trophy item" in Survival mode.

ObtainingEdit

A single dragon egg is generated on top of the exit portal when the first ender dragon is defeated. Dragon eggs cannot be mined directly, as trying to do so will cause the egg to teleport. However, the egg does not teleport if there aren't any air blocks available for it to teleport to, which allows it to be mined.[1] It drops as an item when it falls into a non-solid transparent block, or when pushed by a piston. It will only drop, however, in addition to its needs, if it is obtained using commands as it currently is not in the creative inventory.[Java Edition only]

Spawning and killing more dragons will not generate additional dragon eggs.

TeleportingEdit

To cause the egg to teleport, press attack while in Survival or Adventure mode (press use in Creative). It teleports to a place nearby (up to seven blocks vertically and fifteen blocks horizontally), creating the same particles as endermen. It may teleport into the air and subsequently fall to the ground.

UsageEdit

See also: Sand § Behavior

The dragon egg, if there is no block below it, will fall until it lands on the next available block. When it is being affected by gravity and falling, it exhibits a smooth falling animation.

It does not suffocate mobs or players when it falls and covers them.

The dragon egg can be placed on a non-solid block without falling.

Unlike other falling blocks, when the dragon egg is floating, it doesn't have particles underneath.

Light sourceEdit

Dragon eggs emit a light level of 1.

  • Dynamic block entity data
    • Tags common to all entities see Template:Nbt inherit/entity/template

    •  TileEntityData: Optional. The tags of the block entity for this block.

    •  BlockState: The falling block represented by this entity.

      •  Name: The name ID of the block.

      •  Properties: Optional. The block states of the block, listed as key-value pairs under this tag.

    •  Time: The number of ticks the entity has existed. If set to 0, the moment it ticks to 1, it will vanish if the block at its location has a different ID than the entity's TileID. If the block at its location has the same ID as its TileID when Time ticks from 0 to 1, the block will instead be deleted, and the entity will continue to fall, having overwritten it. When Time goes above 600, or above 100 while the block is below Y=0, the entity is deleted.

    •  DropItem: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if the block should drop as an item when it breaks. Any block that doesn't have an item form with the same ID as the block won't drop even if this is set.

    •  HurtEntities: 1 or 0 (true/false) - true if the block should hurt entities it falls on.

    •  FallHurtMax: The maximum number of hitpoints of damage to inflict on entities that intersect this falling_block. For vanilla falling_block, always 40 (  × 20).

    •  FallHurtAmount: Multiplied by the FallDistance to calculate the amount of damage to inflict. For vanilla falling_block, always 2.

TriviaEdit

  • The writer of the Minecraft comic WonderCraft, Samcube, was requested by Mojang to create official Minecraft posters. In part of these works, one can see an area with an ender dragon and a chicken on top of a huge mushroom. In the same scene, the dragon egg is visible near the chicken.
  • The dragon egg can be considered the rarest block obtainable in Survival, due to the fact that it only spawns once per world.
  •  
    An example of the double dragon egg bug.
    The bug MC-132002 allowed the ender dragon to be completely respawned, if it was initially defeated in 1.12.2 and the world was then upgraded to 1.13-pre3. This allowed for two dragon eggs to be obtained, if the ender dragon was killed before upgrading said world 1.13-pre5 when the bug was fixed. This is currently the only known way to obtain more than one dragon egg in a normal survival world.
