Whenever I summon the Ender Dragon with the /summon command in chat or in a command block, it doesn't move and is untouchable. The only effect that occurs is that it lags out my (garbage) Windows 8 PC.

This doesn't happen in The End. This glitch appears with or without mods, on singleplayer, multiplayer and realms worlds.

Can anyone help?

    Reopen reason: It's clear what the question is about. Just try it: /summon ender_dragon. That's enough to observe that behaviour. Apr 1 '19 at 19:47

  • @FabianRöling might be worth editing that into the question for clarity

  • @Malco What? It's already in there: "Whenever I summon the Ender Dragon […], it doesn't move" Apr 2 '19 at 20:34

according to the Wiki, you need to add a "Dragon Phase" NBT tag to him for him to work. to quote;

The /summon ender_dragon command, by default, summons a harmless ender dragon that hovers in place. Setting the DragonPhase tag (for instance by issuing /summon ender_dragon ~ ~ ~ {DragonPhase:0}) will create a normal ender dragon, but it will have no health bar since the bar is managed by the End's dragon fight status rather than by the dragon entity itself. If spawned away from the center of the map (X:0, Z:0), the dragon will first fly to the center before resuming normal behavior (see #Behavior).
