This is what I'm using to summon a AI-less Wither boss but.. is there any way to hide the energy bar on top of the screen? I was thinking to summon a different mob and change his appearance in some way or maybe summon an invisible entity with a Wither boss on top of it but I don't know how to do this sort of things.. Any help?

/summon WitherBoss ~ ~1 ~ {CustomName:"Custom Name",CustomNameVisible:1,PersistenceRequired:1,NoAI:1,Silent:1}

I'm using a Vanilla minecraft

  • I would say your best bet is to do an invisible, invincible, noAI, silent pig riding a wither...

  • Sorry, I meant the other way around :D A wither riding a pig. I'm unsure if it would work though

There's no easy way to hide it with just commands.

If you are willing to use a texture pack, you can edit it out in texture/gui/icons.png:

You could make your own texture pack, but then you must delete the bar for the Wither's health. However, if you have no knowledge on creating a texture pack, here is a great resource:
