The dragon egg is by far the most rare item in Minecraft. There is only one dragon egg per world unless the player is in creative mode or using some kind of cheat.

Dragon eggs are generated once, and once only. This item is basically used as a decorative block or a "trophy item." A single dragon egg is generated on top of the exit portal when the first ender dragon is defeated.


Elytras

Elytras can only be found on end ships, hanging in the item frame. These items can be guarded by shulkers, so players should be careful when trying to obtain one.

Shulker shells are another rare item that players can only find in end cities in Minecraft. These shells are items that are dropped by shulkers when they are killed in the game.

These shells are what players will need to make shulker boxes. If players plan on getting shulker shells to make a box, they should make sure they have sustainable armor and durable weapons.

Shulkers are hostile mobs, and they will deal a good amount of damage when striking players with their bullets.
