How to Spawn a Blue Axolotl (Bedrock, Java, PE, PS4, Xbox)

Minecraft has been one of the most favorite titles, as seen amongst today’s gaming industry trends. The game has grown its player base steadily over the years, even more since the pandemic hit. 

Many players regularly search for tips and tricks about Minecraft, mainly to get to know the game a little better. One of these questions is how to get a blue axolotl in Minecraft Bedrock and Java edition. 

There are quite a few ways to spawn a blue Axolotl in Minecraft, like using the summoning command “/summon axolotl ~ ~ ~ minecraft:entity_born” or by organically breeding them. The latter option is a lot more complicated.

To successfully summon a blue Axolotl, we recommend reading the article.

What Is A Blue Axolotl?

A blue-colored Axolotl is an aquatic mob with a 0.08% spawn rate meaning there can only be one blue Axolotl out of 1200 offspring.

The Axolotl can easily be traced back to the Pokemon world’s Mudkip because of their similar behavior and appearances. However, Mudkip was the one that inspired the creation of a blue Axolotl in Minecraft.

Due to its rarity and a challenging spawn process via in-game breeding, players are always looking for methods to spawn these creatures quickly.

Colors and Other Characteristics of An Axolotl

There are many colors of this aquatic mob available in the game, including golden, leucistic, brown, cyan, and blue (the rarest of them all).

Normally, every Axolotl lives near the water sources as they will die within 5 minutes of land exposure. They occasionally come on land but don’t go further than 7-8 blocks before returning to the water. 

Behaviourally, Axolotl attacks every aquatic mob except turtles, dolphins, and frogs. Their attacks usually deal 2 hearts of damage to the players. However, if they are attacked, they usually play dead.

Note: When using the command method, the creature will spawn in front of you most of the time. However, there might be scenarios when it appears farther away from you. So, be sure to check your surroundings after using the command.

How To Spawn A Blue Axolotl In Minecraft Java & Bedrock

The Java edition of Minecraft is exclusively available for PCs. In contrast, Minecraft developed the Bedrock edition for all the other platforms, including Windows Store, Xbox, PlayStation, and Pocket Edition Nintendo Switch.

So, if you are searching for summoning/spawning a blue Axolotl in Minecraft, here’s how.

Using Console Commands

Console Commands are the easiest way to spawn a blue Axolotl and come in especially handy when you quickly want to get things done in the game.

Remember that you’ll have to enable cheat if you want to use console commands to spawn the creature.

To get started, you’ll have to open the chat box in the game and type in the following command /summon axolotl ~ ~ ~ minecraft:entity_born and press enter.

Immediately afterward, a Blue Axolotl will appear in front of you or your surroundings. Check the nearby locations before trying again if the command doesn’t work.

You can use this command to spawn a blue Axolotl in every version of Minecraft, including the PS4 and Xbox versions. Additionally, you can use the command as many times as you’d like to spawn a baby blue Axolotl.

By Breeding Axolotls

No matter how hard you try, as mentioned earlier, there is a very low possibility of spawning a blue Axolotl through breeding. Mainly because they are sporadic to spawn, and only 1 out of 1200 Spawns are born blue.

You can breed a pair of Axolotls with a bucket of tropical fish to spawn a baby Axolotl. However, in the Minecraft Java edition, you cannot breed the Adult Axolotls for 5 minutes. This window shortens to 1 minute in the Bedrock version of the game.

The baby spawns take 20 minutes to become adults but can grow up 10% faster with each bucket of tropical fish.

Therefore, it is recommended to use the console commands to save time and resources.

Where Does The Axolotl Spawn?

As much as spawning a blue Axolotl is rare, finding a typical one is equally as tricky. This amphibious mob spawns only in complete darkness five blocks away from a clay or stone block. We don’t need to stress that all of this needs to be underwater with a solid block up top.

However, you can catch an Axolotl using a bucket filled with water by right-clicking on it and creating a water pool in the ground. You could use it for farming axolotls.


Ultimately, it is best to use console commands to spawn a blue Axolotl in Minecraft by turning the cheat box ON, as it is highly unlikely to obtain a blue Axolotl by breeding adults in the game. Remember that you must properly know about caring for the mob before petting them.

If you get lucky, you may own a Blue Axolotl in Minecraft through the Breeding Process. However, you will have to be one in 1200 lucky.
