Weird Minecraft Bug Causes Overworld Mobs To Spawn In The End

One Minecraft player comes across a strange bug causing Overworld mobs to spawn in the End after converting a bedrock world to Java edition.

A fan of Minecraft playing the game on Java Edition shortly after converting their world from the Bedrock edition has discovered an interesting glitch which causes the game’s many Overworld mobs to spawn in the twisted End dimension. Minecraft‘s different dimensions each offer their own unique environments and dangers for players to overcome, but it seems that this mix up in spawning behavior introduces its own interesting gameplay challenges.

The several dimensions in Minecraft have each seen their own extensive updates over the years, with the Nether receiving a complete overhaul with the Nether Update that released in 2020 which added several new biomes, mobs, items, and even a new tier of weapons and armor above diamond. However, the End dimension has always been quite a bit more bleak than the game’s over realms. Home to the abnormally-tall alien Endermen, the End dimension was originally introduced to Minecraft as a sort of boss arena, where players would have to craft the strongest gear and potions to allow themselves a chance at defeating the Ender Dragon, Minecraft‘s first boss mob. Since then, several updates have expanded on the End dimension, adding a sea of outer islands for players to explore and End cities which offered end-game challenges and top-tier loot.

The player to encounter this strange bug posted about the incident on Reddit under the username GatheringMatter, and included a few screenshots of the End dimension full of Overworld mobs. These screenshots allow fans to view the End dimension hosting some of the more common mobs in the game, such as zombies, skeletons, and bats in a place that they certainly shouldn’t be in. Apparently, these mobs began spawning in the End and Nether dimensions alike after the player converted a Minecraft world from the Bedrock edition to the Java edition. This extremely rare occurrence would presumably allow any typically-occurring Overworld mob to spawn in the other dimensions, despite the game still recognizing the End as its own respective biome.

Several interested fans in the comments pointed out that this bug would allow players to construct highly-efficient mob farms in Minecraft‘s End world, which would make for some quick and easy methods of gathering all sorts of helpful mob loot from spider eyes to pork chops. Some fans also expressed their intent to try and replicate the bug in the hopes of achieving the same result.

While this glitch brings a lot of extra diversity and potential to the End dimension, a dedicated End update remains to be a highly-requested update among Minecraft fans. While Mojang has revealed a sneak peek at some of the exciting features that players can look forward to in the upcoming 1.20 update, there remains to be no sign of an imminent End update just yet.

Minecraft is available on Mobile, PC, PS4, PS5, Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and most legacy devices.
