Type Armor
Uses Flying
First Appearance 1.9


Elytra is a special kind of Armor, introduced in the 15w41b snapshot, which takes up the chestplate slot.


Elytra are a pair of wings that allow you to glide from high places. They are considered an end-game Item. Elytra will allow a 10-1 glide ratio, which means that you can go 10 blocks forward for every block down at maximum efficiency. To use it, you must first equip it, then jump and hold space while falling.


Elytra can be obtained from the End Ship, floating above the End City structure in the outer End. It can be found within the hull of the ship, inside of an Item Frame.


Elytra can be repaired with leather on an anvil. They can also be repaired by placing two damaged elytra side by side on a crafting table. Their Durability will be added together, and the two elytra will be merged into one).


  • When a player is wearing an Elytra in Creative Mode, they can infinitely fly while gliding with it by holding down Space or by holding the A/X button if the player is on Console Editions
  • On Console editions players can push up on the right joystick to make their arm go forward into the superman position.
