I've gone into the Nether and seemed to have lost my portal out of it, I also can't die in lava or by mobs attacking me, I'm appear to be invincible and can't die.

This is Single Player by the way.

Why is this happening?

    Is your world set to "Creative Mode"? – thedaian Oct 29 '11 at 1:16
  • The concern in his question seems to indicate otherwise, but I have see this bug before, logging out usually worked for me though :o – Domocus Oct 29 '11 at 1:54

    Did I read wrongly, or are you complaining about invincibility in a single-player game? – BoltClock Oct 29 '11 at 8:08
  • @TheAnnoyingPyro I think the main problem here is that he sees death as his only way to return to the overworld. – badp Oct 29 '11 at 11:53

It seems you are playing in creative mode, so you can easily make a new portal to go back to the overworld. If you don't want to, remember you can always double tap space to fly; that should make your hunt easier.

Even if you aren't, if you created your portal at spawn, the nether end of it should be in the general neighbourhood of X: 0 and Z: 0 (mostly within a 100 meters range of that). Press F3 to show your coordinates and try to head in a direction that brings both X and Z close to zero (Y is your altitude, confusingly). Keep in mind your portal might be high up enough that you can't see it.

It sounds like you are in creative mode, then you are invincible. Can't you build a new portal?

If not; try to kill yourself by digging to the void, or below yourself...

  • This is the method that I've used before. – Ken Nov 21 '11 at 23:18

    Falling into the void will kill you even if you are in creative mode. – Joe the Person Jan 7 '12 at 17:57

You Can:

-make yourself a new portal

-dig down (thanks Zephlon) to the void and die

-use the /kill command to die (works like regular dying)

-use the /gamemode s command and then jump into the lava

    Digging up into the "void" of the Nether doesn't hurt anymore than flying above y=255 in the overworld. You can, however, dig down to the void and die. – Ruby May 20 '15 at 18:40
  • ok, ill fix that – Jeffmagma May 21 '15 at 21:45
