Ender Dragon Sprite
|Attack Type||Charge Attack|
|On Death||1 Dragon Egg|
The Ender Dragon is the Boss mob of Minecraft and is only found in The End. An End portal is required to get to The End, and to build that portal you need Eye of Ender and End Block. The End Portal can be found inside Strongholds. An Ender Portal leading back to the Overworld will be opened once the Ender Dragon is defeated.
The Ender Dragon is believed to be designed off of Notch's original Red Dragon design. The Ender Dragon is the first Minecraft boss, eventually to be followed by the Wither.
It is recommended before fighting the Dragon to sleep near the portal and to bring plenty of stacks of Dirt blocks.
One of the easiest ways to defeat the Ender Dragon is to use an enchanted Bow. It is reccomended to enchant before you go into The End because the Endermen will destroy your bookshelves quickly.
When fighting the Dragon, it is advisable to destroy the Ender Crystals as this will disallow the Dragon from re-healing its health.
Once defeated, you will get the award in the form of a Dragon Egg. The Dragon Egg does not contain an Ender Dragon; it is merely a decoration.
