A Dragon Egg is a decorative egg block, which is dropped after defeating the Ender Dragon in The End.

Mechanics

Enderdragonportaldrop

The portal that the Enderdragon spawns upon death.

Clicking on the egg will cause it to teleport to a nearby area (up to five blocks vertically and fifteen blocks horizontally) and create the same teleport Particles seen around Endermen, Nether Portals, and Ender Chests. Dragon Eggs behave similar to sand and gravel in that they fall when unsupported by a block, but they cannot suffocate the player since they are opaque blocks.

Source

Since Dragon Eggs teleport upon clicking them, the player cannot directly obtain the egg. To collect it in their inventory, one will have to use a Piston. Before placing down a piston, make sure that the portal around the egg is fully covered, in order to prevent the egg from falling into the portal. Place down the piston adjacent to the egg, then activate the piston, and then the egg will drop as an item. The egg can now be placed and mined without going through the same process again. Another strategy to obtain the egg is to let it teleport once, then dig a hole next to it, and finally destroy the block right under it and quickly place a Torch under the egg.

Trivia

  • Dragon Eggs serve no purpose, other than a trophy or decoration.
  • Only the original ender dragon drops an egg; re-spawned dragons do not.
  • The Dragon Egg is one of only two items that appear when a Minecraft boss is killed, the other item being the Nether Star.
