The current download is an outdated, legacy version of the Elder Dragon feature of True Survival. Beta testing is currently underway for the new and improved bossfight. If you would like to partake, you can find those important links here:
[World Download] (1.19.3)
[Feedback form]

The Beta Test is in the form of a world download. It's outfitted with kits and gamerules made to make fighting the dragon quick and easier to access. Hope you enjoy and don't forget the feedback form or to comment below!


This datapack aims to rework the stale fight that is the Ender Dragon!

The Elder Dragon fight is split into 3 stages:

1) Stage One: Teledragon.
-The dragon has random chances to teleport to the player whenever it flies by a crystal. Disable this ability quickly by destroying the end crystals.

2) Stage Two: Phantoms.
-The dragon will spawn in phantom minions when below 150 health. This will occur once every 15 seconds. When the dragon is flying away from you, you'll have to tend to the phantoms in order to make sure they don't overwhelm you.

3) Stage Three: Paracreepers.
-In addition to another phantom, the dragon will start to spawn in charged creepers with slow falling when below 75 health. This will occur once every 25 seconds. The creepers will have abnormally long follow range. Defeat the dragon quickly before these minions become too overwhelming!

The ender dragon has been updated sparsely over the years. The cages don't really protect the crystals and the fireballs can simply be walked away from without taking any damage. The teleportation ability allows the dragon to protect the crystals more while referencing the ability of other ender creatures. The minions make the player feel more pressured as the bossfight comes closer to an end. Phantoms will attack from the skies while the dragon floats away and creepers will occupy the ground, posing clear threats to the player. (This datapack is intended to be used with other True Survival datapacks but it is not required)

True Survival is undergoing an overhaul of its Dragon fight rework. You can get an early look at its mechanics here! Below is the download of a world outfitted for fighting the new Dragon. It's been made easier to do so and fight it multiple times. You'll want Minecraft version 1.19.3.

If you do fight the Dragon, there is a feedback form below. Please fill it out if you choose to fight the dragon, it very much helps development!

Hey there, this datapack is awesome to play with in survival! I am planning on creating a Better Ender dragon Boss-fight Compilation Datapack. Since there are already many awesome datapacks like this one out there, I plan on combining them all to create an even better boss-fight. Could I use your datapack for this compilation? I will of course give all the proper credit. I would definitely include the stages feature, the teledragon ability and maybe the phantom summon too, but another datapack has a similar feature so I'm not sure which I will use.

Thanks in advance!

In the video, you stated the enderdragon was a male in 2:40 "he". I'm sorry to correct you but the enderdragon is a female.
