Ghasts are cool to me. I have asked a friend: is the Ghast a boss?

I need to know because I am getting Minecraft on Xbox 360.

    "I'm aghast you would even ask!" says a nearby ghast with an excited grin. Everyone else rolls their eyes. Sep 10, 2021 at 13:07

    @PaulD.Waite You are lucky there is no pun police on Arqade.

    @Fredy31 if there were, it wouldn’t be arqade :) (quite literally, it would be named arcade instead) Sep 10, 2021 at 22:09

No, Ghasts are normal hostile mobs that live in the Nether.

They can spawn in basalt deltas, nether wastes, and soul sand valley biomes, so you can find more than one wandering around.


They are definitely not a boss, though can be more tricky than your average zombie. Reason being is because they fly and their attacks hit rather hard. They also contain a unique mechanic which lets you deflect their attacks and shoot them back at them.
