Hostility Level (Hostile)

A vindicator is a hostile mob. The term mob is short for mobile and is used to refer to all living, moving creatures in the game such as chickens, creepers, and vindicators. Because a vindicator is a hostile mob, it will attack you in Survival mode but not Creative mode.

Health Points

In Minecraft, a vindicator has 12 hearts  for health. This gives a vindicator 24 health points (because 1 heart = 2 health points). To kill a vindicator, you need to inflict 24 points of damage to the vindicator.

Where to Find Vindicators

In Minecraft, you can find vindicators in Woodland Mansions which are found in the Dark Forest biome.

To find a vindicator, you will need to go to the top floor of a Woodland Mansion and check in each of the rooms.

If you are having trouble finding a vindicator, you can also summon a vindicator using a cheat or you can use a spawn egg.


A vindicator carries an iron axe as a weapon.

Attack Method

In Minecraft, a vindicator will run towards you, pull out an iron axe and try to strike you with it.


When you kill a vindicator in Minecraft, it may drop one of the following items: an emerald.

Make sure you pick up the dropped items before they disappear. These are useful and should be kept in your inventory to be used later.

Experience Points

As you play the game, you will gain experience. The most common way to gain experience is by killing mobs. When a mob is killed you will see tiny green and yellow balls appear and move towards you.

These orbs represent experience points. When you kill a vindicator, you will gain 5 experience points.
