Fence (1)
All types of Fences



Tool Used



Yes (64)





First Appearance

Update 0.2.0

Fences are Blocks that were added in Update 0.2.0. They are used as barriers since most Mobs cannot jump over them.



The main use of the Fence is to keep animals trapped in a certain location, and for decorational purposes. It can also be used as a barrier around the Player's home to keep Hostile Mobs away. After Update 0.15.0, the Player is able to attach Leads to fences.


  • Before Update 0.10.0, only Oak Fences could be crafted.
    • However, after Update 0.10.0, all wooden types of Fences were added.
  • Creepers will begin their countdown to exploding if the Player is directly opposite to the Fence, as they are technically in the same block.
  • Nether Brick Fences are the only type of Fences that aren't made out of wood, and do not have a Fence Gate counterpart.
  • Because Spiders have the ability to climb vertically up most objects, Fences do not provide much safety from them.
  • Nether Brick Fences were added in Update 0.12.1.
  • Nether Brick Fence's texture was brightened after Update 0.14.2.
  • Large Magma Cubes can jump over Fences.
  • The Player cannot jump over the Fence; however, it is possible to jump over a fence with a Potion of Leaping in effect.
  • If the Player runs into a Fence until they cannot move, and then exits and re-enters the world, the Player will be standing on the Fence.
  • Fences can be used by the Player to create an Airlock under Water.
  • When a Carpet is placed on a Fence, the Fence will act like an ordinary block, thereby allowing the Player to jump onto it. However, Mobs cannot climb onto it until the Carpet is removed.
