Spider Eyes can also be made into potions when added to a water bottle (into a brewing stand). It will make a Mundane Potion , the other is a Potion of Poison creating when mixing it with an Awkward Potion.


As a crafting item, a spider eye can be mixed with a brown mushroom and one sugar to make one Fermented Spider Eye .


  • Despite the fact that the Spider Eye is poisonous and can be consumed to slightly replenish hunger, it will only harm a player's health instead of just the player's hunger.
  • It could even be used when one's health bar is down to a few hearts, because poison cannot kill the player (it does not reduce health below ).
  • Although Spider Eyes can only produce negative effects for potions, they can be used as an attack when made into a Splash Potion (brewing Gunpowder into a potion will make it a Splash Potion).
  • Spider Eyes exist in the Xbox 360 edition of Minecraft.


As of Minecraft 1.9 Prerelease 3, if a Spider Eye is mixed into an Awkward Potion it will create a Poison Potion . A Poison Potion hurts the player for a set amount of time, just like getting attacked by a Cave Spider .
