Occasionally when an ender pearl is thrown
Endermites are the smallest hostile mobs in Minecraft.
Spawning[edit | edit source]
Using an ender pearl has a 5% chance of spawning an endermite.
Drops[edit | edit source]
Endermites drop 3 experience when killed by a player or tamed wolf.
Behavior[edit | edit source]
Their movement and appearance is almost identical to that of a Silverfish.
Endermites will attack players within 16 blocks of them.
Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, regardless of the player's distance from the endermite, unless they are named with a name tag. If they are named, they will never despawn unless they are killed or the difficulty is switched to peaceful.
Endermites will take damage if walking on soul sand, due to its small hitbox.
Endermites will spawn two portal particles around them.
Endermen[edit | edit source]
Endermen will attempt to kill endermites, provided they were spawned from ender pearls and there is no nearby player in Survival or Adventure mode. If the player is close enough to an endermite, endermen focus on the player instead of the endermite.
Data values[edit | edit source]
- See also: Chunk format
Endermites have entity data associated with them that contain various properties of the mob. Their entity ID is
Lifetime: How long the endermite has existed in ticks. Disappears when this reaches around 2400.
PlayerSpawned: Endermen will attack the endermite if this value is 1.
