In Minecraft, to remove a tag from a player (or entity), you use the command

/scoreboard players tag <player> remove <tagName> [dataTag]

If I potentially have multiple scoreboard tags on a player, is there any way to remove them all with one command? As far as I can tell, there's no wildcard for the above command: using * for the <tagName> tries to remove a tag called *.

    For entities you can set their data to {Tags:[]}, but I don't believe this is currently possible for players.

  • @colorfusion yeah, /entitydata doesn't let you change players. Commented Aug 25, 2016 at 19:50
  • @colorfusion I suppose, since I specifically asked "is there any way", you fully answered the question, so if you post that as an answer I'll accept it. Commented Aug 25, 2016 at 19:58

There is currently no way to do this you have to remove them one at a time.


Try using:

/scoreboard players reset @a 

or to remove all scoreboard tags to a specific player, use (X=playername):

/scoreboard players reset X

I hope this was helpful, as I've seen your question on here for quite some time. Have a good day!

    That won't work. That resets scores. Tags aren't scores.

  • In that case, you'll have to use: /scoreboard player list and then remove each one by hand using: /scoreboard player remove X. X=scoreboard tag name Commented Nov 12, 2016 at 5:08
