5% chance when an ender pearl lands

Endermites are the smallest hostile mobs in Minecraft.


Endermites have a 5% chance to spawn when an ender pearl lands.


Endermites drop 3 when killed by a player or tamed wolf.


Endermites attack players (and iron golems[Bedrock Edition only]) within 16 blocks of them. If a mob attacks an endermite, any endermites in the area become hostile toward that mob. They can attack endermen when spawned with a spawn egg.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Endermites despawn within 2 minutes, regardless of the player's distance from the endermite, except for when they have been named with a name tag.

Endermites spawn two portal particles around them.

Due to being arthropods, they are weak against weapons with the Bane of Arthropods enchantment.


Endermen attempt to kill endermites that spawn from ender pearls, or endermites that are spawned from spawn eggs.‌[Bedrock Edition only]

Endermen can target an endermite from up to 64 blocks away.
