The head-hunt for the largest collection of mobs!
DropHeads logo including mobs up to minecraft version 1.16

Built using quality heads supplied by Minecraft-Heads.com ❤️


  • Get player/mob heads with a command or as a death drop
  • MASSIVE variety of mob heads (snow fox, lime sheep, grumm swamp farmer villager, …)
  • Head stacking and texture updating (on skin change, configurable)
  • Custom "beheading" death messages
  • Regular updates (option for auto-updating as well)
  • Fully configurable!


Configuration (Sample)

The defaults are designed to work well for most any server.
However, if you like getting into configuration, here's a taste of what you can do:

  • Adjust drop rates (per mob type)
  • Adjust drop rate based on spawn conditions (eg: Breeding, MobSpawners, /summon, ...)
  • Adjust looting enchantment drop rate modifier
  • Adjust drop rates when using specific tools or weapons
  • Require using specific weapon(s) for heads to drop (eg: gold axe)
  • Enable charged creeper head drops for non-vanilla mob heads
  • Enable/Disable heads of any mob or player
  • Only drop heads when killed by a player
  • Control conditions for what counts as 'killed by a player'
  • Change any of the head textures
  • Automatic updates, bringing new textures and features
  • ...And more => Check out configuration files in the source repository


Q: Can I edit the head textures (i.e., for a resource pack)?
A: Yes!  Look into the head-list.txt file

Q: How do I modify mobs' head drop rates based on spawn reason?
A: Edit the spawn-cause modifiers.txt in the config folder

Q: Does this plugin cause any lag?
A: Nope!  I've heard it is much faster than Xisumavoid's datapack :)

Q: What if I'm coming from another heads plugin?
A: DropHeads should be an easy drag-n-drop replacement, but if you have any issues let me know!

Q: What about older versions of Minecraft?
A: Sorry, modern DropHeads is not currently compatible with 1.12 and below.  You can download an older version of DropHeads from the Files tab, or use a different head plugin that supports old versions, such as PlayerHeads.



  • DropHeads as a PlayerHeads addon (Goal: old minecraft-version support + the wide collection!)
  • Tropical Fish C-C-P head-generator
  • "Hollow" heads for Skeleton-Horse & Stray
  • Option to affect drop-rate based on how many ticks an entity has lived
  • More detailed and configurable logs system
  • Improve/find missing heads for these mobs:
    • Giant (currently using "Giant Toe")
    • Tropical Fish (3104—we currently only have the 22 common varieties ☹️)
    • Zombie Villagers with Profession and Biome skin features (W.I.P., about halfway done ☺)

If you find a bug or want to help with a missing head, please let me know!
