I'm making a floating armor stand, and I don't want it to have legs. I'm putting a helmet and chestplate on it, and I would like the arms to be visible.

How can I remove just the legs?

  • Are you putting anything on the armour stand? If so, you can set the armour stand to be invisible, then just not put pants on it.

You cannot completely remove the wooden legs of an ArmorStand in vanilla Minecraft whilst still keeping the arms visible. You could, however, position them so that they cannot be seen.

To hide the baseplate (the stone part), set the NoBasePlate tag to 1b.

Use the Pose tag compound to position the ArmorStand's parts. I'd recommend using something like this tool as this is a pain to do manually.

With this, you can have its legs folded up into its chestplate, like this:

/summon ArmorStand ~ ~ ~ {NoBasePlate:1b,ShowArms:1b,Pose:{LeftLeg:[180f,0f,0f],RightLeg:[180f,0f,0f]}}

Final result, with armor:
