Wither Skeletons are a type of vanilla Minecraft mobs found in Nether Fortresses inside of the Nether. Wither Skeletons have large stone swords and are about 2.5 blocks tall.They move faster than normal Skeletons.Their attacks inflict the Wither debuff,which turns the healthbar black and rapidly drains players health,similar to Poison.Their heads, which drop very rarely, can be used to spawn the Wither boss, which requires four blocks of Soul Sand and three Wither Skeleton heads. Wither Skeletons are mostly black with small horizontal stripes of gray.
