Zombie Villagers are hostile Mobs that sometimes spawn when a Zombie kills a Villager.


Depending on the difficulty, Zombie Villagers can spawn when a Zombie kills a Villager. They also have a small chance to be spawned when the Player uses a Zombie Spawn Egg. They also will spawn naturally in the Overworld.


Their skin is green, alike Zombies, and their eyes are red. They also still resemble their Villager counterparts. In MCPE, Zombie Villagers look different than Zombie Villagers in the PC edition. However, they will have the same skin after the PC 1.9 Update.


Zombie Villagers have the same amount of health as a Zombie has, so this means that they can be easily beaten with an Iron Sword or above. A Bow would work too. If a Zombie Villager is near a Village, there is a chance to turn all the Villagers in the Village into Zombie Villagers that will attack the player.


Zombie Villagers can turn back into normal Villagers by splashing them a Splash Potion of Weakness and then feeding them a Golden Apple. They will start shaking, then turn into Villagers after 5 minutes. During this time, they will be stronger than normal.


  • Zombie Villagers will chase Villagers to kill them.
  • Baby Zombie Villagers run faster than normal Zombie Villagers.
  • They had an old appearance that gave them the villager head, but clothes as if it was a regular zombie.
  • They cannot wear armor or hold a weapon or tool, unlike Zombies.
