This question already has an answer here:

When my brother and I were playing on LAN for one of my worlds we defeated the ender dragon and wanted to refight it. I looked at a few online helps but they only tell me how to do it on a server.

    You could use MCEdit or the /summon command (1.7+ only) – Jon Mar 25 '14 at 23:38
  • If you are running a local or online server you can just replace your "The End" folder and whenever you create another Ender Portal, you will get a new "The End" world. – Mkalafut Mar 27 '14 at 12:48

    Respawning the ender dragon works exactly the same way on singleplayer as on a server. – pppery Aug 6 at 21:23

LAN worlds are considered to have cheats enabled, at least for the host.

/summon EnderDragon

is the command you're looking for.

  • do I have to use it in the end? And will it re-bring about the end escape portal/the philosophy thing? – Cyberson Mar 26 '14 at 23:05

    I would certainly do it in the end. You CAN summon an Ender Dragon in the overworld/nether, but because of their ability to remove any normal block type, it can make quite the mess. As for your other question, AFAIK Ender Dragons spawn a portal when they die, regardless of how many Ender Dragons there have been. The portal blocks themselves trigger the game over 'poem.' TL;DR: No, Yes. – timelmer Mar 27 '14 at 4:05

In the Snapshot 15w44a, you can re-summon the enderdragon by placing end-crystals on the edges of the portal in the end. This will maybe change (its just a snapshot version), but this should be the intended way of fighting against the enderdragon again and again in survival without any commands/cheats. See the changelog here.
