The Wither is a boss in Minecraft. It has 300 health (150 hearts.)
Creation[edit | edit source]
The wither is created by making a T of soul sand, (easier to find now that the Nether Update is here) then put three wither skeleton skulls, signaling the three heads. Then the wither forms, and the battle is on.
Attacks[edit | edit source]
The wither has one attack, and it is very deadly. It shoots an explosive wither skeleton skull, exploding when it touches anything. This has the same blast as TNT. The Wither will keep shooting skull after skull until it is killed, which can be very destructive to the world.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The specific name chosen here on All Species Wiki, "deuro" and "psycháderfos", is a combination of two words: The Latin verb meaning "burn down, burn out, burn up, destroy, consume", and is considered a word similar to the word "wither". It is also used as a word play on burning up referencing the Hellish design of The Nether. This is combined with the Greek noun for "soul brother"; this is used as a play on their creation involving combining the parts of several individual Withers and souls to create the entity.
