Komodo dragons are tamable venomous mobs.

Spawning Edit

Natural generation Edit

Komodo dragons spawn naturally in Swampland biomes.


Komodo dragons are at least 3 blocks long and less than a block tall.

Drops Edit

Komodo dragons will drop 0 to 1 reptile hide upon death. The amount of reptile hide dropped is unaffected by the Looting enchantment. Large Komodo dragons have a 25% chance to drop an egg. They drop 1-3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.

Tamed Komodo dragons will drop a saddle upon death if equipped.

Behavior Edit

Komodo tamed

A tamed Komodo dragon with a saddle equipped.

Komodo dragons wander around aimlessly, avoiding cliffs high enough to cause fall damage, and usually stay out of water (although they can swim). Komodo dragons can be heard hissing occasionally, and tend to 'sit' like crocodiles. Komodo dragons will chase the player within a 12-16 block radius. Komodo dragons are also venomous; and will poison their prey, and even the player, when attacking.

A Komodo dragon can be tamed by killing a larger Komodo dragon and obtaining an egg. The egg can then be hatched by placing it on the ground with a high light level. The resulting baby Komodo dragon will be tamed if the player at least stays in the area of the egg. If you move too far away (further then 10-13 blocks), the newly hatched Komodo dragon will be wild. Tamed Komodo dragons can be healed with raw turkey or raw rat.

After a Komodo dragon reached its full size, it can wear a saddle.

Tips Edit

  • Komodo dragons don't always spawn alone. Bring a bow or an iron sword or better.
    • It may also be advised, although not entirely necessary, to use a sword enchanted with Sharpness or Fire Aspect.
  • Dirt scorpion armor can be worn to counteract the poison, as it benefits you with a mild Regeneration effect.


Riding Edit

Once a Komodo dragon is tamed and saddled, the player can control it with standard directional controls, jump, and the mouse. The player dismounts using the dismount control (shift).

When riding a Komodo dragon, the hunger bar is replaced by the dragon's health in survival or adventure mode. It uses a slightly different heart texture than the player's health bar.

A player can use any item while riding a Komodo dragon, including drinking or throwing potions; activating doors or redstone devices; using chests, crafting tables, and furnaces; breaking and placing blocks; and attacking with melee weapons or bows. A ridden Komodo dragon will automatically run up any one block high slope.

Komodo dragons are one of the slowest rideable mobs in the mod (they can however, be combined with speed potions). They are also very slow moving sideways.

A ridden Komodo dragon can be made to jump. Komodo dragons are not affected by jump boost beacons or potions. The standard dismount control (shift) dismounts from the Komodo dragon, as does going in water deeper than two blocks (even though Komodo dragons can swim). Like the player, Komodo dragons take fall damage when falling from heights.

  • Komodo dragons are based on the large reptiles of the same name.

  • Komodo dragons make the same idle, hurt and death sounds as snakes.
