Health Bar

White Cover

Cool health bars above mobs' and players' heads, a must-have for RPG and PvP servers! No Spout required. Everything is customizable, you can use permissions and even create your personal health bars.

Quote from filoghost:

In 1.8+, Health Bar won't work anymore. This happened because of a change, that basically removes the tag CustomNameVisible. I wrote an open letter to Mojang asking to re-add the tag, please share this link to make them read it!

Health Bar
Configuration Customize! Commands Permissions API Github
Twitter Donate


  • Customize the text over a mob head (name, health and max health)!
  • Customize the health bar for players, prefix + suffix, on the name tag, and for players (see the customization page)
  • Option to always show health bars
  • Health bars disappear after a configurable time
  • No Spout or client mods required
  • Easy drag and drop install
  • World selection for mobs and players
  • Will notify the console when an update is released on bukkit dev (on reload) and players with permission
  • Shows amount of health below the player's tag (With configurable name, no health bars there. Why?)
  • Shows on custom named mobs and restores the name after the bar has disappeared.

This plugin is compatible with:

  • Damage Indicator Holograms
  • Colored Tags
  • EpicBoss Gold Edition (set hooks -> epicboss: true)
  • ScoreboardStats
  • MobArena (set override-other-scoreboard: true)
  • McMMO (use the latest version, it will be fine)
  • Citizens (you can't turn off the health for citizens, under the name, because it's displayed on all the human entities)
  • Permission Health
  • Sentry for Citizens (v1.3.7+)
  • Heroes (use latest version)

Not compatible with:

  • NametagEdit - may crash players, alternative plugin: Colored Tags

  • TagAPI (It could make players show 0 HP and hide team names; works with mob health bars)

    @filoghost CustomNameVisible Is coming back to MC 1.9 Its back on 15w31a version. I hope that they keep that attribute in the future.

    Only issue is that there's no way to make the player health bars appear temporarily if they're below the name.

    Works in 1.8.7, The Spigot Team Probably fixed it themselves XD unless Mojang fixed it in one of the minor patches...
