Wither Skeletons have a 2.5% chance of dropping a Wither Skeleton Skull when killed by the player. This chance can be increased by the Looting Enchantment.

These are used to summon the Wither boss in Minecraft.

2) Dragon Head

This can only be obtained when the players defeat the Ender Dragon, travel to the End Dimension and find a End City with a End Ship docked at the side.

This has a very rare chance of happening and players can find the Dragon Head on the bow of the ship. Players can only find one of these in the entire game, making them one of the rarest collectible in the game.

3) Rest of the Mob Heads

The other 4 heads cannot be obtained by killing the corresponding mobs. Players need to make sure that a Charged Creeper explodes near the mob head they want to obtain the guaranteed head.

This is the only method in the game to obtain the Zombie, Skeleton, Creeper and Player heads and is kind of difficult to obtain. However, players can learn how to get a Charged Creeper right here!
