Minecraft Bat NBT Data Tags

Using the summon command to spawn in a minecraft bat is simple, take the command and enter into chat and presto you have a bat. Bats can not be tamed or bred. They are passive ambient mobs.

How to summon hanging Bat

The nbt data tag BatFlags:1 sets the bat into hanging mode, this only works if the bat is summoned underneath a block and the block is a regular (non-transparent) block. If the space in invalid or not the summon command, then the bat will fly off.

/summon minecraft:bat ~ ~ ~ {BatFlags:1}

To stop the bat flying away use the NoAI:1 tag, which prevents all mob movement.

/summon minecraft:bat ~ ~ ~ {BatFlags:1,NoAI:1}
