Report HoloMobHealth?


It's frustrating when you can't see how much health your opponent has left. Well, now you can! With HoloMobHealth, you can customize how you would like to display mob health above its head!


Want video demonstrations? Here are some videos made by some awesome people!
Video by ServerMiner in English:

Video by SirBukkit in German:


First of all, it won't affect your death messages or mob names! The health display is only CLIENT-SIDE! So that death message filled with hearts won't happen!

1. Display health above all mob's head

  • Well obviously, this is the point of the plugin, here is a few pictures!

2. Customize your own mob health display design

  • The plugin provides multiple different placeholders for you to customize your display, for example you can choose round health to nearest integer, or 2 decimal places, or display the mob's name!

3. Support hearts display ❤

  • If you like to use hearts instead of text, you can! Just put the corresponding placeholder {ScaledSymbols} in the config!

4. Damage Indicators! [1.11 or above]

  • Show health gain and loses with tiny numbers around the mob!
  • You can hide damage indicators in certain regions through flags if you use WorldGuard [v7].

5. Completely client-side! No mobs are changed

  • The health display is only visual, meaning that the mob's actual name isn't changed on the server.
  • If you want to not let the health display override named mobs, or want health display to display alongside the mob's name, you can do that all in the config!

6. Custom placeholder scripts

  • Yes! You can create your own placeholders through the use of JavaScript
  • More info on that below

7. Languages and Mob types

  • All of course! You will be able to change all the text that is sent to players to your liking to suit your server.
  • Entity type names will be translated to the language of each user's client language!
  • Villager professions and Tropical Fish types are also identified by the plugin!

8. Blacklist any mobs

  • Blacklist any mob type from being affected by the health display
  • Blacklist any mob with a certain name
  • Blacklist any mob with a name that contains a certain text

9. Dynamic health display

  • You can toggle the plugin to only display mob health when it is attacked or taking damage in the config!

10. Supports RGB and Font [1.16 or above]

You can use RGB code in any part of the config that support colors!




If you have a custom resource pack that has different fonts, you can even use them like color codes!


11. Compatibility with other plugins

  • You can disable health display for mobs from MyPet, Citizens, MythicMobs (Partly) and Shopkeeperin the config!
  • PlaceholderAPI placeholders can be used as well!
  • If you have other plugins you want to be supported, tell me in the discussions!
