Step 1: Kill a Mob using its Universally Unique Identifier (UUID)

Every entity in Minecraft has a unique ID which is shown when the command is being executed.

  1. At first, you have to look at that Mob.
  2. Type /kill
  3. You will notice that a unique ID pops up.
  4. Select that UUID.
  5. Execute the Command by pressing Enter.

Every identity in Minecraft world has a unique ID.

Sometimes you may not see the UUID. This may happen because of a bug. Restart Minecraft to debug.

Step 2: Kill a Specific Type of Mob

If you want to kill a specific type of entity then this step works the best.

  1. At first, look at the mob directly.
  2. Type /kill
  3. Use @e to target all the entities
  4. Then type [type=cow]. This will kill all the cows at once.
  5. Execute the Command by pressing enter.
