How to turn a zombie into a villager in Minecraft (and vice versa) ?

One of the most common creatures in Minecraft is the zombie, among these are the villager zombies that can be healed from their zombie status in order to turn them into villagers. Here’s everything you need to know about healing and creating village zombies in Minecraft.

Healing a Village Zombie

Unzombifying a village zombie requires two main steps, but there are a few other things to consider.

Total Time: 5 minutes

  1. Trap the zombie villager.

    You need to make sure that the zombie villager can’t hurt you and can’t be exposed to light if it’s daylight. The best thing to do is to trap it under a roof, cave or other blocks so that you can always see it.

  2. Afflict the zombie villager with a weakness potion.

    The best and easiest way to do this is to use a disposable weakness potion. This is created in a still with the following ingredients: Fermented spider’s eye, bottle of water (up to 3 at a time), gunpowder, and fire powder. ( The Persistent Weakness Potion and the Weakness Arrow also work )

  3. Give a golden apple to the zombie villager.

    While holding a golden apple, place it on the Weak Villager. You must do this within the time limit of the weakness effect. If you do, the particles of the Zombie Villager will turn red and start to shake.

  4. Speed up the process.

    If the zombie villager is near or next to iron bars and/or a bed, the process will be much faster, as it takes time for the healing effect to take hold.

  5. Congratulations ! You now have a Villager !

    If you’re not close to home, you’ll need to transport it with a wagon, nether portal or boat, but the general healing process is complete.

Note : Some people prefer to have the village zombie chase them back to their house at night and trap them there for easy transport.

Creating a Zombie Villager

The only thing that is easier in Hard mode and impossible in Easy mode is creating a zombie villager. The reason for this is that in order to create a zombie villager yourself, you must allow a zombie to kill a villager. The percentage chance of a zombie villager being created from this event is as follows :

Peaceful (zombie villagers cannot appear)0 %
Easy0 %
Normal50 %
Difficult ( including Hardcore mode )100 %

That said, if you play on easy mode, there is still a 5% chance that all the zombies that appear are village zombies. There will also always be zombies in the basement of an Igloo and in the zombie villages.
