True Ending dramatically overhauls the vanilla Ender Dragon. Fight a now much stronger Ender Dragon with multiple phases, increased health, and new attacks. Through other additions like longer lasting dragon breath and elegant particle animations, the Ender Dragon fight is now much more intense and more satisfying to beat.

Difficulty: Damage from the True Ending Ender Dragon is scaled by difficulty, so if you're looking for a greater challenge, set your world's game mode to Hard. This also works by making the fight easier with Easy mode.

Boss Music

True Ending adds boss music to the Ender Dragon boss fight! If you're using the datapack version, you'll have to download the resource pack by clicking here. Mod users won't have to install the resource pack as its already nicely installed along the mod jar file.


You can configure multiple settings in True Ending, like the Ender Dragon's health, through its settings menu by using /function true_ending:_settings in chat.
