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.

  • EpicBoss Gold Edition (set hooks -> epicboss: true)
  • ScoreboardStats
  • MobArena (set override-other-scoreboard: true)
  • McMMO (use the latest version, it will be fine)

    @filoghost: Go

    Could you add mcCombatLevel to the compatible plugin list?

    Please try with 1.8.2-pre4 and above, Mojang re-added the custom name visible tag! :D Edit: sorry, I was wrong.

    This doesn't work on disguised mobs or animals. It works on normal mobs but when i disguise a zombie as an animal the health bars don't show above them.

    Anyone an idea why this plugin is working buggy for me on the regular 1.8 spigot version? I have a feeling another plugin is causing trouble such as vault or so.

    I thought i saw this working on 1.8 YESTERDAY, but i updated to the latest spigot 1.8 and now it always only shows 0 on PLAYERS only, monsters and animals seem to work

    again, i thought it was working yesterday on players too, i wonder if its a spigot bug
