So, I accidentally spawned an Ender Dragon on my realm. I tried multiple commands and nothing is working. I even tried using the existing commands on my realm. But it is still not working. So how do I get rid of it on my realm?

I tried the following, which didn't work:

/kill ender_dragon

With the following error:

Entity ender_dragon could not be found

    What are the multiple commands you've tried to use? We can't really provide an answer if it ends up being something you've already tried, but neglected to specify. – Skylinerw Feb 5 '17 at 20:32
  • I tried /kill and I tried to enter the Ender Dragon's entity ID. But it say's: – BrycethegreatYT Feb 5 '17 at 20:49
  • Entity ender_dragon could not be found – BrycethegreatYT Feb 5 '17 at 20:49
  • Yes. That keep's happening when I try to kill it. And I don't understand because the Ender Dragon's Entity ID is ender_dragon. – BrycethegreatYT Feb 5 '17 at 20:55

You've inserted "ender_dragon" as a literal player name. If you want to target generic entities, you will need to use the @e (entity) selector, and specify the savegame ID in the type parameter:

/kill @e[type=ender_dragon]

  • Lol I don't understand what @e means. So, can you tell me what that exactly means? – BrycethegreatYT Feb 5 '17 at 20:56
  • Oh nevermind. It means entity. – BrycethegreatYT Feb 5 '17 at 20:57
  • But it still isn't working. I can only do specific commands. – BrycethegreatYT Feb 5 '17 at 20:58

    @BrycethegreatYT "@e" means "everyone". So the commands to which it is applied affects all entities (of a specific type). By the way, if you consider that the answer above helped you, please mark it as accepted by pressing the checkmark button. – John Feb 6 '17 at 12:32
  • Don't forget: The dragon must be loaded or else the command won't work (within view of any player, or be in a spawn chunk and same dimension). – aytimothy Jul 19 '17 at 6:44
