Zombie Villagers are hostile mobs in Minecraft that have similar behavior to the regular Zombie. They spawn naturally as 5% of all Zombies. Zombie Villagers have a Zombie's skin and a Villager's head. They occur when Zombies lay siege to a village and kill Villagers. If a baby villager is killed, it becomes a Baby Zombie Villager. Like Zombies, Zombie Villagers may spawn with an item equipped.
- The most common tool for a Zombie Villager to have equipped is an Iron Shovel.
- When using the zombie spawn egg, there is a 5% chance that a Zombie Villager will spawn.
Where they live naturally
- When a Zombie kills a Villager in Hard or Normal difficulty (100% chance and 50% chance respectively)
- At night
- In dark places
Zombie Villagers can be hit with a Splash Potion of Weakness and then fed a Golden Apple to cure them
