Step 1: Supplies

All you will need is:

1 command block

1 button or switch (something to power the command block with)


You can just type the code (from the command block) in the conversation section.

Step 2: Command Block

If you are in 1.8 or later,

Type in "/give YourName minecraft:command_block"

If you are in an earlier version than 1.8 then,

Type in "/give YourName 137"

Now that you have your command block, place it where you want your zombie to spawn/be summoned.

Hold down Shift and right click the command block with a button.

This will allow you to place the button on the command block without opening the coding area.

Step 3: The Actual Code

Now, right click the command block.

Type this in the top text area: /summon Giant ~ ~3 ~2

The three ~ signs mean x, y, and z.

I typed 3 in the y variable because then the giant would spawn 3 blocks above the command block and not in it.

I typed 2 in the z variable so it would spawn 2 blocks away from the command block.

You can mess around with these numbers to get familiar with them.

Step 4: Click the Button!

Click the button on the command block.

It should spawn a GIANT zombie!

The hit spots on the zombie are its feet and its stomach.

It will not attack you in survival.

It doesn't burn in the sunlight also!

You can name it with a name tag, but the name shows up inside his head.

I think I'll name him George.
