Display slots

Players’ scores for particular objectives can be displayed in specific game slots using the /scoreboard objectives setdisplay command (see command reference). One objective can be displayed at a time in each display slot, and multiple display slots can be used for the same or different objectives.

Slot Description
list Displays a yellow number or some hearts (/scoreboard objectives modify rendertype (hearts|integer)) without a heading on the tab menu, where online players are shown.‌[Java Edition only]

Displays a white number without a heading on the Pause Menu, where online players are shown.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Visible even in singleplayer.

sidebar Shows on the right hand side of the screen. Shows up to 15 entities with the highest score of that objective with a heading labeled with the objectives . Note that players are shown even if offline, and untracked players are not shown. In addition, fake players with names starting with a # do not show up in the sidebar under any circumstances. ‌[Java Edition only] There are 16 team-specific sidebar display slots. These operate the same as the standard sidebar slot, but only display to players who are on teams which use the specified color (for example, “” displays to players on “green” teams). Valid colors are: “black”, “dark_blue”, “dark_green”, “dark_aqua”, “dark_red”, “dark_purple”, “gold”, “gray”, “dark_gray”, “blue”, “green”, “aqua”, “red”, “light_purple”, “yellow”, “white”.
belowName Shows the followed by the objectives below the players nametag above their head. This is hidden beyond ~10 blocks and when the player is sneaking. Not visible in singleplayer.

Tags are a straightforward list of single-word strings that are kept in an entity’s Tags data tag. As with objectives, tags are case-sensitive.

With the “tag” argument, target selectors can be used to determine whether an entity has a tag.

Teams”team” redirects here. For the command, see

A team’s variables include its name, display name, member name prefix, member name suffix, whether to allow friendly fire, and a list of its members.

Internally, references to a team’s name are made in commands, target arguments, and file formats. It is a single, case-sensitive word.

A teams DisplayName is a case-sensitive JSON text component that is displayed publicly in a variety of contexts.

Prefix for a team’s member name The chat, the list of players who are currently online, the sidebar, and above the heads of team members all use prefixes and suffixes. These can be edited with respective commands.

The AllowFriendlyFire option controls whether or not members of a team are able to damage each other. This defaults to true, leaving PvP mechanics unchanged—ergo, players can harm their teammates. When set to false, however, players on the same team are prevented from directly damaging each other with melee attacks, bows, and Splash Potions of Harming. Note that players on the same team may still inflict negative status effects on each other with potions, even if is false. Some non-player entities in a team are also affected by this.

It’s crucial to remember that each team member can only be on one team at a time; teams cannot share entities.

By combining target selection with the “team” argument, commands can be used to verify the existence of team members. (A name may have the! character before it to check for entities that are not members of a team.) (For instance, entering the command block /execute if entity @a[team=red] produces comparator output if any player is present on the red team. In contrast, /execute if entity @a[team=!red] provides output if the red team is empty. If any player is on at least one team, then /execute if entity @a[team=!] allows output, otherwise /execute if no players are on any teams.

scoreboard players reset []‌[Java Edition only]scoreboard players reset [objective: string]‌[Bedrock Edition only] Deletes score or all scores for the target. If is specified, then only that objective is cleared. Otherwise, this applies to all objectives. Note that this does not merely set the score(s) to 0: it removes the targets from the scoreboard altogether (or for the given objective).
scoreboard players test [] ‌[Bedrock Edition only] Tests if targets scores are within min: wildcard int and max: wildcard int (Defaults to 2,147,483,647). min: wildcard int can be replaced with asterisk (*) to represent -2,147,483,648, and max: wildcard int can be replaced with asterisk (*) to represent 2,147,483,647.
scoreboard players enable ‌[Java Edition only] Enables the target player(s) to use the /trigger command on the specified objective. This command accepts non-player entities, but only players are able to actually use the /trigger command. Until this has been done, players that attempt to /trigger that objective fail. Using the /trigger command disables it again. Note that if the target(s) did not previously have a score for the specified objective, this command will set their score to 0.
scoreboard players operation ‌[Java Edition only]scoreboard players operation ‌[Bedrock Edition only] Applies an arithmetic operation altering the targets score(s) in the target objective, using sources scores in the source objective as input.

may be:

  • “+=” Addition: Add sources score to that of target
  • “-=” Subtraction: Subtract sources score from that of target
  • “*=” Multiplication: Set targets score to the product of targets and sources scores
  • “/=” (Integer) Division: Divide targets score by sources score, and use the result (rounded down) to set the target score.
  • “%=” Modulus: Divide targets score by sources score, and use the remainder to set the target score
  • “=” Assign: Set targets score to that of source
  • “<” Min: Set targets score to sources score only if source has the lesser score.
  • “>” Max: Set targets score to sources score only if source has the greater score.
  • “><” Swaps targets and sources scores

In all cases except “><“, sources score remains unchanged. If target or source isnt tracked by the specified objective, it will be set to 0. If more than one score holder is specified as sources, performs the operation once with each sources score. If more than one target score holder is specified, performs the operation for each target one by one.

Minecraft: How To Display Hearts & Other Statistics Tutorial


Why are my hearts not showing in Minecraft?

If your graphics settings have your particle count set to none, hearts might not appear. You can now play hearts to your heart’s content by turning it up.

How do you make a health show in Minecraft?

So, for instance, you would type /scoreboard objectives set display sidebar deaths instead of /scoreboard objectives set display list deaths to create a death counter that will appear on the right side.
