Creative Mode

What is Creative Mode?

Creative mode is one of the main game modes in Minecraft. Creative mode strips away the survival aspects of Minecraft and allows players to easily create and destroy structures and mechanisms. It also changes the background music.


In Creative mode, players are given an infinite number of blocks to build with, with no health or hunger bar to hamper their building (though it is still possible to eat). Creative mode allows players to destroy all blocks instantly (including normally-indestructible blocks such as bedrock and end portal frames), provided they are not holding a sword or trident. Single-use items are also not consumed (with the exception of fire charges used to ignite TNT).

Creative mode gives players the ability to fly. To activate flying, double tap the jump key. Use the jump key to go up and the sneak key to go down and the movement keys (default is WASD) to move. The player can disable flying in mid-air by double-tapping jump again, causing them to drop to the ground. Touching the ground when flying does not disable flying, with the exception of Java Edition. However, getting into a minecart or bed while flying does not disable flying when the player gets out.

Players in Creative mode are unable to receive damage. However, going too far into the Void still kills the player, but the player can fly around in the Void provided they do not descend below y=-64. This, other than the use of the /kill command and external editors, is the only way to die in Creative mode‌ (Java and Legacy Console editions only). Creative players in Bedrock Edition are completely invulnerable, just like in spectator mode.


The only varient for Creative Mode is Spectator Mode. Like the name suggests, Spectator Mode is used for players to watch a Minecraft World without interacting with it in any way. Like Adventure Mode, you cannot place or destroy blocks, but you can still fly like Creative Mode.

An interesting aspect of Spectator Mode is the ability to phase through solid blocks. In this mode, if you fly torwards a block in your way, you will simply pass through it instead of stopping in front of it.
