Natural generation

There is a chance that you can be very lucky and come across a blue Axolotl in the wild. If this happens, you should remove it with a bucket and take it to a safe, secluded watery place to ensure that it does not sail or die. Each Axolotl created has a 0.083% chance of being a Blue Axolotl.

While Axolotls usually have a 50-50 chance to take on the color of one of their parents, there is also a chance that you could end up with a Blue Axolotl baby. The chances are the same as at the regular spawn rate, low 0.083%, but breeding gives you much more chances to try Blue Axolotl than exploration.

However, once you have a Blue Axolotl, breeding becomes very easy. Reproduce your blue Axolotl with another Axolotl of any kind and there is a 50% chance that the child will be blue because one of the parents will be blue. Once you have two Blue Axolotls, you can breed more Blue Axolotls with a 100% breeding rate.


If you prefer not to go through the pain of getting Blue Axolotl the natural way, you can easily get Blue Axolotl using commands. Recall that this is considered a scam, but sometimes it is a path one might want to take. It’s great for creative mode, creating servers or creating adventure maps.

/summon minecraft:axolotl ~ ~ ~ {Variant:4}
