• I'm afraid this question isn't answerable in a way that you can understand. There are so many tags that we can't possibly provide a full list. You can check out the Minecraft Wiki for item structure. – ExpertCoder14 Jun 11 at 4:25

Item data tags are a recursive (tree) structure of JSON data associated with an item. Doing a quick calculation, I estimate there are about:

## 7.9 * 1061093 ≈ 10104.786

Technically there are a very large number of possible item tags, too many to be able to list. Just estimating how many there are: I only consider books, which contain their text within such tags, and thus their number will dwarf everything else. When dealing with big numbers like these adding a smaller number to a big number: `B + s ~ B`, so we only consider the most numerous category (as it's likely orders of magnitude more numerous than any other). Question: How many books are there?

A book can have 50 pages, 256 characters per page, and all characters must be in the BMP. There are currently 55,503 characters assigned in it.

This means you can have `55,503 ^ 50 ^256`. This is approximately 1.8 * 1060727 distinct books.

Each such book can then be enchanted in various ways. Approximately `2^9 * 256 ^ 13 * (2 ^ 63) ^ 4 * 2 ^32 * 6 * 11 * 21 * 128 * 6 * 128 * 15 * 11 * 8 * 4` ways, or about 2.3 * 10 131.

There are 4 book states.

The title of the book and author name are another 32 * 55,503 options.

There are 2 ^ 24 = 16777216 colours.

There are 128 hide states.

There are attributes which take double-precision fp (52-bit mantissa) values. This gives another `PROD(2 ^ 52 * N)` multiplier for each for: `(10 * 2 ^ 52)^3 * (11 * 2 ^ 52)^3 * (2 ^ 52)^2 * 2log(30)* 2 ^ 52 * 2log(20) * 2 ^ 52 * 2log(5) * 2 ^ 52` possibilities or about 1.0 * 10180.

There's two 64-bit INTs for customModelData and damage, two booleans for another 2128 options.

Multiply everything to get the number above...

A list of all the possible valid tags in the vanilla game can be found at https://minecraft.fandom.com/wiki/Player.dat_format#Item_structure.

• Not to mention that item data supports user-defined NBT too, so the possibilities are endless. – ExpertCoder14 Jun 9 at 14:56
