Baby Zombies are hostile mobs in Minecraft. They are smaller and more dangerous versions of a regular zombie. They can spawn with armor on very rare occasions. They are much faster than a zombie.

Unique AbilitiesEdit

Compared to a normal zombie, a baby zombie:[1]

  • Does not burn in sunlight
  • Runs much faster than the adult zombie
  • Can fit through small holes (1 by 1 holes)


A baby zombie has a low overall chance of spawning. Even more rarely will they spawn with a full set of armor.


Baby Zombies can become Chicken Jockeys if they ride a chicken. In this state, they do not take any fall damage. The chance of one occurring is lower than 0.5% in most cases. Even lower if it has armor.


Since they are a little deadlier, precautions should be taken. Attacking from a distance always works well. Iron Swords always works well.


  • Rotten Flesh, similar to adult zombies.
  • Experience.
  • Armor, if equipped.
  • Weapon, if equipped.

Pocket EditionEdit

Baby Zombies were added in Alpha 0.11. Similar to their PC counterparts, they spawn rarely and are quicker.
