Skyroot Chest Mimics are decoy blocks found in the Aether.


Skyroot Chest Mimics cannot be obtained in Survival Mode, only via inventory editors, the /give command, or Creative Mode.

Natural generation[]

A portion of Skyroot Chests will instead generate as chest decoys in the Slider's Labyrinth.


Skyroot Chest Mimics spawn Mimics when interacted with in any way, and cannot be deduced from normal Skyroot Chests unless interacted with.


  • Due to that Skyroot Chest Mimics are treated as mobs disguised as decoy blocks, it is best to check for them with a ranged approach, such as with a Bow.


  • In the original The Aether mod, Skyroot Chest Mimics were originally Monster Spawners that spawned Mimics.
