Mechanics[edit | edit source]
This effect is temporary, and will not kill a player unless an additional source of damage is dealt to them. This is because the effect pauses when a player's health reaches 1 (File:Half Heart.png). If the player regains health while the poison effect is still active, their health will continue to deplete until it once again reaches 1 (File:Half Heart.png).

Fatal Poison[edit | edit source]
A variant of the poison effect (called fatal poison), is exclusive to Minecraft: Bedrock Edition. This effect will continue to deduct health from a player, even after they reach 1 (File:Half Heart.png), which kills the player. It is only obtainable through the use of cheats.
