How to Tame a Phantom in Minecraft

Phantoms are air hostile mobs in Minecraft, which are pretty fast and look like bats are dark blue mobs. Resembling mini dragons, these phantoms have green eyes. Players usually see these undead mobs flying around the Minecraft world. Phantoms are spawned when the player does not die or sleep for three consecutive days. If players reset or generate their spawn back within three days, Phantoms will not spawn. When the players’ attention is elsewhere, it immediately swoops down on them and attacks.

Phantoms only spawn every two minutes with light levels of seven or less. It is visible only during night thunderstorms or during nighttime. The phantoms are most visible when the player is at the y level of 75. When Phantos comes down, players can defeat him by striking him with a sword or using a bow to knock him down.
