Picking Up Blocks[edit]

This needs to be tested correctly. This means you must place the blocks while playing 1.8.1, and you must hand place them (using a fill plugin won't work). If they still do take THESE blocks, then it is confirmed they may pick up all blocks except the one that person tested. Cool12309(T|C) 15:31, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

This info is straight out of the recently deobfuscated source code. It's correct. BTW, the page says that they can pick up slabs if they are double stacked but the code seems to suggest otherwise. Last username 03:57, 19 September 2011 (UTC)
(Edit:Sory.Mistakes can happen. They do no drop the block they are holding D: )Well...If they can move Diamond Ore and they drop the block they are holding...NO MOAR IRON PICKAXES!:D If I can get my forest back...BlockBarracade 20:18, 20 September 2011 (UTC)(By the way, If have no idea what I'm talking about, check this page out Smelting as it states that you can smelt Diamond Ore.)

The State of the Talk Page[edit]

More than half of this talk page has nothing to do with the Wiki and is being used as a forum for people to voice their opinions and ideas. We should really stop the forum stuff. The wiki is no place for speculation, idea suggestion, or opinion sharing. The Get Satisfaction site should be used for idea sharing, and real forums for everything else. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 23:56, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

We should petition an admin to go on a deleting spree here :D --HexZyle 02:22, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Well, I agree to that then.Ajc 1254 20:07, 4 August 2011 (UTC)


The [File:Enderman.png] possibly needs to be updated. The endermen now have pupils when neutral. --HexZyle 11:15, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Hey guys I recently saw a white enderman lurking in a singleplayer minecraft world, the sun killed it before I could get a screenshot but has anyone else seen this?

Correct info[edit]

Notch Confirmed that the mob will be peaceful until looked at directly

"(they stop being peaceful if you look straight at them)"

also they can teleport to you

"at least you can make them stop teleporting by looking directly at them now."

One last thing here are the tweets

" @notch, Markus Persson

at least you can make them stop teleporting by looking directly at them now. 11 hours ago

@notch, Markus Persson

The Endermen are peaceful. If you look straight at them, they freeze and look at you. When you look away again, they run fast. And teleport. 6 hours ago

@notch, Markus Persson

They run TOWARDS you, not away. So if you happen to look at one, do not look away. 6 hours ago

@notch, Markus Persson

(they stop being peaceful if you look straight at them) 6 hours ago"

Trying not to get too nitty gritty, but Notch never said they run towards you, that is just an assumption that they attack like all other mobs by running straight at you and are a melee mob. The may run fast to get behind you, or run fast to avoid your sight, not necissarily towards you. --HexZyle 05:10, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

ah. seems I didn't read the thingy properly. :S embarressing much --HexZyle 14:03, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Hey look at the 1.8 preview video! They look at one, look away, thus causeing it to become hostile. They look at it again and it keeps attacking. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Darthzues (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

So, in order to see a Enderman, I had to play on creative, because evidently two hours on SMP isn't lucky enough. Some facts about them from what I can tell: They seem to be able to teleport into solid blocks- underground, I have had them disappear on me, with no open space close by other than the area I was in, They only attack once you look directly at them, regardless of angle or distance. Endermen attack skeletons that accidently hit them with arrows. If an Enderman which is hostile to you is attacked by a skeleton, it will kill the skeleton, then return to its previous peaceful state. The drop, Enderman Pearl, allows you to make a unarmed attack from a distance away. The distance is rather far, I'd say at least fifteen blocks. However, the Pearl is only effective on mobs, doing nothing to blocks. Endermen can't climb ladders, for what its worth.

Ender Pearls do not increase the distance from which you can attack mobs. When playing in Creative Mode, you can attack mobs from very far away (I want to say as far as you can see, but I haven't actually tested this), regardless of what you're holding. ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 05:47, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Possibly the scary mob?[edit]

Not to sure, but i think this fits well enough to be absolutely horrifying. So, possibly the scary mob that was mentioned? –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Johnthedragon (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Since silverfish don't seem to be scary in any way, I am completely certain that this is the scary mob. Did the silverfish even get any mention from Mojang? There's lots of hype over these weird creatures. Mybabypetghast 22:13, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
I don't know. I look at them, and they seems sorta friendly.
Regardless, we are a Wiki. we are not speculations united. Until told otherwise, this mob must be considered to not be the scary mob. --Kizzycocoa 22:19, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

The scary mob was finished by Jeb a long time ago, while this one is very recent and worked on by Notch. This isn't it. - DarkAuk 22:54, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

And where is the reference for that, DarkAuk? On wikipedia it says that the Slenderman is a being which can distort your perception, make you vomit blood, eviscerate children, and cause nausia and paranoia. I think that is the definition of scary. --HexZyle 00:10, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
The "scary monster" was said to be finished on June 10th[1], but it was not put into 1.7. The Endermen were started by Notch on July 24th[2] So, the time frame and author don't match up. This may be scary, but it's not the one. (Also, while I don't mind, most people would shoot you don't for using Wikipedia as a reference source.) - DarkAuk 00:57, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
What's wrong with using wikipedia? There are thousands of people worldwide making sure it remains a perfectly accurate information source, if an innacurracy exists, it will be corrected fairly quickly. --HexZyle 04:30, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
That's what I think, but most people totally discredit it because 'anyone can edit it'. - DarkAuk 14:33, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
This form of self-correction actually only happens on the more major articles, trusting less well-established articles for factual accuracy can still be folly in some cases.Roady1990 16:31, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
If the scary mob is finished, Then there would be some sort of reference to it being completed, let alone being in the games files right now. I say citation needed! - Mybabypetghast 00:43, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
You know that they're keeping a good portion of 1.8 a secret, right? And so what if it wasn't put in 1.7? That update was just for pistons and shears. - DarkAuk 01:12, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Yes, but they put the silverfish in 1.7 though. If this isn't the scary mob, tell me what you think the scary mob is then. Mybabypetghast 01:25, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
They put the Silverfish texture in 1.7 as a teaser/trolling/accident, but there is no code or actual models in the update. The Silverfish may be the scary mob (maybe 242_Girl is scared of them), or they could be something completely new and unexpected. Only time will tell. - DarkAuk 01:30, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Damn you TIME! Hurry up and spill the beans!!! :P --HexZyle 04:30, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Well base on the fact that notch was working on a "secret project", we dont know for sure,

that could be a hint to the dragon? CreeplyCreepingCreeper 01:46, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

I do think the enderman is the scary mob,when I first saw it Im like "O_O HOLY CRAP WHAT IS THAT THING"

It scared the crap outta me,it stared me dead in the eye without moving,it was scary so I looked on the wiki and saw the big mistake I made by moving my cursor over it,I almost died that day

Could these things act like Herobrine?[edit]

Since these things appear to be sinister and intelligent enough to build, could they act like the Herobrine hoax that's been going around? It seems likely to me. Mybabypetghast 22:20, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

i have only one thing to say on this mob... were screwed and now make your home 2-3 blocks thick –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Francinum (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Oh lord I hope they are smart enough to build, and that seems unlikely because most of the Herobrine lore just involves him watching you. Occasionally some of the stories have had him building things.. ~Cial
Yea the folklore I've heard is pretty much just about some weird guy watching you in the fog (I can't even find him in the original picture :/). A few random babblings potray him beckoning the protagonist into some sort of hole or small cave and then filling it with gravel in an attempt to suffocate them. Herobrine was the first mob (fake or not) to be able to build things (accounts of random pyramids and crap) instead of just destroying them. I'm excited to see something that can build in vanilla minecraft. Herobrine and Endermen just seem kinda similar (recently noticed the white eyes on Ender, another similarity) to me. Mybabypetghast 00:38, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Yea I noticed the white eyes bit too. Notch Mentioned if I recall correctly wanting to get something Herobrine-ish in game. Have you noticed how tall these things are? The one on behind the left most one holding sand is four blocks tall at the least.. ~Cial~
Is it just me or do some of the Endermen in this pic look taller than the others? --HexZyle 04:37, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
I really don't think Notch would be able to program a mob capable of building anything intelligent. I'm guessing they'll take things out of your inventory when they attack or something similar. RacinFreek 01:26, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
YOU DOUBT THE PROGRAMMING ABILITIES OF THE GREAT NOTCH?! Of course he could make something intelligent. He made minecraft as we see it today, which is much more intelligent than you could make any mob. Mybabypetghast 01:30, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
I did not say it had to build something epic.. Yea pickpocketing sounds interesting too. On the IRC I suggested that when one gets near you everything starts getting quiet.. But odds are that will never happen..And sometimes I doubt the abilities of Notch. I have seen the work "hacked" and "feature" too many times in the design notes.. Cial 02:04, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Pickpocketing would be ok, I guess. But these things don't look like they could run fast enough to be a problem (i.e. using their speed to run off with your stuff), with their long slender limsbs. I don't see the point in having something that can hold blocks if they don't do anything with them. I agree, they're probably not going to build anything that'll knock your socks off, but if they're holding blocks, they're going to do something with them. Mybabypetghast 03:17, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

One person speculated that since they are only holding a sand and dirt block (as of yet) they may be limited to taking blocks dependant on what tool they are carrying. Since they aren't carrying could probably safely build your house out of stone. --HexZyle 04:37, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

these are weird....i bet notch will delete it. - wolfdog98

I would have to assume it is to early to speculate on what they can or can not hold, liquids are highly unlikely in my mind though... Cial 12:20, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

all i have to say is...

download winrar and go into the minecraft folder and delete enderman! i did and it works... joshua1716

They pick up natural blocks, I have seen they carrying smoothstone. I think its just rare to find one in caves and what not. BsiGio 19:08, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Arrangement and Structure of this Talk Page[edit]

Am I hallucinating or is HexZyle adding his comments in between things that have already been said? p.s. Hex the one I have been able to judge the height on the best is 4 blocks tall, keep in mind they are all standing on different elevations Cial 20:44, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

@Cial, I am, I'm assuming comments with the same inset distance are replies to the comment one inset less, and I'm attempting to organise this page's structure accordingly. I apologise if it upsets you, but this talk page is a horrible mess. Can I add in subject headers and add insets (:) if someone doesnt have one and it looks messy? Because I can't tell who is talking to who. And these multiple subject headers are about the exact same thing really tick me off. --HexZyle 23:49, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Like if you look at your comment you just posted there, Cial, it seems you have responded to the "these are wierd" comment by wolfdog98. That makes no sense at all. Since your comment is a new sub-subject, it should be without insets (:) --HexZyle 23:52, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
@HexZyle, It is not upsetting me its just confusing me; when I see comments I didn't recall seeing before in the conversation, but yea if you are just organizing things go for it. I kinda lost the flow of the conversation a while back..Cial 00:40, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
Yay! (:3) I hope I haven't sounded to cocky...I kinda meant all that in a lighthearted manner, I'm just a little OCD and I'm absolutely obsessed with sorting and arranging things that I get carried away :D --HexZyle 05:11, 28 July 2011 (UTC)
I apologise to everyone about the mass edits of this talk page. Most of them are just structure edits, so please if i change an inset that you intentionally structured, and you feel offended, undo it and ill get the picture. It's just as new things get released, during the prerelease the Talk pages can get hella messy. --HexZyle 05:29, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

The endermen deal 4 hearts.-barterer –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Barterer (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~


I believe this will be a new mob, but some people out there think it could be a trick from notch. I'm just putting that here... --FWD Talk 22:39, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

If it is a fake, I'm gonna be fuming mad at Notch for cutting out worktime from 1.8 to work on a faked screenshot. 1.8 is supposed to be the LAST major update for Beta (i.e. not a patch/bug-fix), next comes the actual release of minecraft. This has to be one of the best updates yet. Given that, I doubt it would be a fake. Mybabypetghast 00:20, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

"but some people out there think it could be a trick from notch" By some people you mean only you? Or are there really people who think notch would waste time faking with us? Jtlcr777 00:31, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Exactly what I'm getting at. Mybabypetghast 00:40, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

This isn't April 1st, and these are not Steve CO. supply crates...These are mobs... ~Cial~

I just said, I'm putting it here. I believe in this mob. --FWD Talk 12:12, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Why in the world would Notch spend time to create a faked screenshot of these things? It makes no sense! -Hlast –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hlast (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Alternate Names?[edit]

I've heard a lot of talk from several different sources and many people think endermen/enderman is a tacky name. However the reference to slenderman is still well liked and most people like names like slenders. Others like the name Farlanders as a reference to the "farlands" at the edge of minecraft, even saying that they come from the end of the world, where everything is black, which is shown in the Farlands page of this wiki. Personally i like Farlander because to me it sounds more original. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Zaramoth (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Dear sweet zombie Tesla lets not altname this Mob to death like we have for every new item/block/mob that has been released in the past 6 months. And what the hell do the Farlands have to do with a tall creature that picks up and moves our blocks?? Cial 17:46, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
I preferred the name Farlander as well. It was original, and a reference to Minecraft itself. What happened to the old splash text about being meme free and such? It made more sense then Endermen, because what does a creepy tall man who stalks children have to do with Minecraft OTHER then a reference to what Notch want's to be? Tecmag 15:08, 8 October 2011
People originally called it Doug for a short time before an official name was confirmed. - DarkAuk 17:51, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Doug? Doug the block mover...Wow... Cial 17:56, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Doug? Are you serious? They never called him Doug. They called him SCHWOOPY THE PANTS SALESMAN. Doug? Ha, don't make me laugh.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 18:22, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
As I feel the same issues with Herobrine will reach to this page, I will state that we will NOT accept alternate non-canon names. I shall also ensure this page's quality is kept throughout the pre-release. --Kizzycocoa 18:39, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
@Kizzycocoa Ok. Link to Doug, which is used in a plural sense: [3] - DarkAuk 00:40, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Kizzy is right. While the Enderman have been referred to as such by Notch, there has been no reference that they come from the Far Lands. I think that's a kinda redundant idea as no one would ever find them (820 HOURS of walking from the center of the map, and that's if you keep going non-stop, no nightime shelters or anything). In fact, I have yet to hear of someone making a legitimate trek to the far lands, and even then it would be hard to prove whether or not it was, in fact, a legitmate trek. No legitimate player will ever find them. Mybabypetghast 21:40, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

Sorry to burst your bubble, but someone is making a legitimate trek to the far lands and recording the entire process as well as raising money for charity along the way. See He’s been going for two months already. Kroc 21:43, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
When you say making in that context, you assume they've already finished. My bubble shall be officially burst when said person finishes his or her journey. No one likes it when someone tries to twist and mangle your words in some way that they can make a retort that makes them feel better about themselves. Mybabypetghast 21:58, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
It is a long journey however it can be done, it would be impressive if this person does in fact make the entire journey, to put it simply, said person needs to get a bloody life! MarcusJ
Lol, true. You'd have to spend weeks on minecraft in order to get that far. It's possible, but it hasn't been done yet. Mybabypetghast 20:19, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

They look very creepy[edit]

It could be the "scary mob" that Jeb announced a while ago. --Atr 17:35, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

This must be some bug in the Wiki software. I did not post this... :S Atr 17:36, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

hope there fake, they will ruin the game. (wolfdog98)

I smell troll. We already have a discussion on how this is not the "scary mob" at the very top of the page. Also, it is they're not there. - DarkAuk 17:50, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
That's not a troll, it's mere speculation. This is a troll:

I recently hacked into Notch's computer and got the enderman's class files and put it in the game. They breathe fire, fly, and throw bombs at you that kill you instantly and destroy everything in a 20x20 area. They can see you from one corner of the map to the next so it is impossible to hide from them.
There's your made up troll for you :3. Mybabypetghast 04:21, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

You forgot the terrible grammar and cocky attitude that many trolls display :P --HexZyle 05:12, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Addition of proper Grass blocks?[edit]

In the background you can see one of the Endermen holding what seems to be a dirt block, and yet it has the normal grassy edge to it.

This might be a glimpse of being able to legitimately pick up dirt blocks and having them still keep their grass. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by PurpleLink (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Maybe it used INVedit? --Trollrilla 11:05, 11 August 2011 (UTC)
Lol, now we have H4xx0R mobs that endorse in the use of third party programs. "Sooo, you like to play castlevania?" --HexZyle 11:44, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

They can also pick up leaves and stone as their orignal forms, so I think they can just pick up grass without turning it into dirt. --pognet 8:53 11 September 2011

History of name[edit]

Putting it here more for future additions to the article than anything, but it should probably be noted the source of the name of the new mob.

From the Reddit discussion thread, Notch says "That's it, I'm officially naming them "Endermen" as a (subtle) reference to this." Which is in reference to the internet meme Slender Man. I.e. (sl)enderman.

I can't be bothered at the moment to write up prose on the topic (especially since we have very little to go on at the present moment), but I definitely think it's worth mentioning in the completed article when 1.8 is released, if only as trivia at the very least, I guess. Atr 17:35, 27 July 2011 (UTC)

It's mentioned in the travia.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 17:41, 27 July 2011 (UTC)
Excellent, thanks whoever added it. Atr 16:35, 31 July 2011 (UTC)


More weaklings for me to kill! Perfect! I can almost taste their blood already... (YES, this is a JOKE, serious post below this)

Well, in my opinion, there should be some type of block they can't move, either by weight (iron and gold?) or by block strength (obsidian and bedrock?) or perhaps both. Or maybe just regular old cobblestone to make players feel a bit more safe.

On the other hand, if they can move all blocks (except bedrock, but you can't make a house out of that), I hope there is some way to turn them but not the other monsters off, otherwise I'm switching to peaceful until I have at least diamond sword and full iron armor, preferably lava buckets too. Slayerlord13 07:00, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, but this really is a pointless edit. The talk page is for talk for improving the content of the wiki article. As always, use forums and such for comments like this. Please keep this in mind for next time! Atr 18:53, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Out of all the posts that use this talk page as a forum, you had to say that to me and (seemingly) only me. Really? Slayerlord13 22:46, 3 August 2011 (UTC)


Please keep it current.[edit]

If your going to be a complete anal-wart and lock the page, at least keep it current. 4 almost 5 hours ago notch posted on his twitter, revealing that this mob can teleport when your not looking at him.Yet there's nothing about that on his wiki page. Either unlock it. Or do your damn job, jew. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mr.Grinch (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Notch made a random statement that may or may not have anything to do with Endermen. It was really too vague to be included. Also the insults are not really called for. And sign your posts. --Warlock 21:12, 28 July 2011 (UTC)

Weeping Angels kill me now....[edit]

Dear god(any god)..All of Notch's twitter is "Notch y u ad Weeping Angels?!? Dey scawy!!". I mean really.. They are vaguely Angle like in their behavior yea, but the traits mentioned are shared by another that fits their description a lot better... But that is just me ranting here.. Opinions anyone or do you just want me to shut up? Cial 03:36, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Agreed. The only thing that ever goes onto Notch's posts anywhere on the net are about a hundred posts all within the same minute, all saying the same thing. (OMG [9 instances]/It's Slenderman! [52 instances]/I won't be able to sleep at night [13 instances/An original joke that actually is pretty funny [2 instances]/You made Slenderman! [another 36 instances]) --HexZyle 05:24, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
I think Notch has actually wanted to add this type of mob for a long time. Back during the Nether Update, he said he wanted to, but it wouldn't work well in SMP or something. Funny how you couldn't even go to the Nether in SMP until recently. Regardless, I have been waiting for this mob for a while. All we need is Fish. - DarkAuk 18:31, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Don't get me wrong, I love the mob. I love almost everything about the mob(god I want to know what Notch plans for the sound effects involving the mob). But people that hear it described and start yelling "Weeping Angel" make me wanna feed them to some kind of tall ominous eldritch abomination.. Cial 21:53, 29 July 2011 (UTC)
Good thing they are barely close to a Weeping Angel, otherwise killing them while they are looking at us is close to impossible. --AntonImaus 04:06, 30 July 2011 (UTC)
These are like the Weeping Angels!! Almost worse than HeroBrine, if he is ever added, these are WAY too creepy for MineCraft. I hope Notch doesn't decide to add these for real, or I'm looking for a mod to disable Endermen in the game. A lot of people play MineCraft because it's not like other games like Dead Space or Silent Hill, where you're never that far from screaming your head off. You don't always have to keep check behind you for something that will make you sleepless all night. This is not MineCraft as it should be, and I don't want them added to the game. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by IntangibleWaffle (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~
The poster above should be glad they left no name else I would murder them in their sleep Oh look they added their name.. There is barely little to no resemblance to a Weeping Angel. As for scary scary mobs, put the game on peaceful for go play something else. Also if you are not checking behind you for creepers you are an idiot. This is how Minecraft is going(note how it is spelled) adapt, adjust, quit whining... Otherwise nice troll you made me twitch and want to strangle something.. Cial 18:31, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
That was me adding the unsigned tags. I completely agree with you that the comparisons can be bothersome, but this is really not the place to talk about that. The right place would be a forum. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 23:52, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Oh dear zombie Tesla no, the people there are mostly idiots.. Cial 00:17, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
You can't say you won't get scared a little bit while playing minecraft. Many newcomers to minecraft find cave ambience scary, The Nether is very scary when you first go there (NO ONE has mentioned the Nether, they all just whine about how minecraft will be too scary for them and how they can't handle something that is only slightly creepy), and who hasn't jumped when they turn around and see a creeper in their face? people need to stop the whining and start contributing here. Mybabypetghast 20:50, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
I can see some of the similarities between the endermen and weeping angels but there are quite a few differences between them.--Tastylicious 07:21, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

How Much Do You Want to Bet...[edit]

That the Endermen will have 15 hearts health and deal 4.5 hearts of damage? (Just for fun) - DarkAuk 02:16, 31 July 2011 (UTC)

That sounds like it would be about right, looks like that would give them the most HP other than a giant or a large slime. Cial 18:37, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
I'd like them to be 15 health, but 4.5 seems a bit much, how about they attack really fast, let's say thrice as fast as a zombie, but only deal half a heart of damage, or multipliers depending on the block that's being held. Rotflstar 9:38, 31 July 2011 (UTC)
Aren't spiders faster than zombies? Or is that just when they lunge. If so I say make Enderman' speed a pinch faster than a spider lunging Cial 00:27, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Ok, that is kind of rediculous. With their speed, small hitbox and distinctive and evasive method of transportation, making them overpowered would be absolutely insane. --HexZyle 02:20, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
They'll probably attack by picking you up and then attacking you in some other way, maybe they'll just hold you and shake you around so you can't really get a good shot at them while some actually dangerous mob finishes you off.--Kodiak42 22:39, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

I for one welcome our dark lords.[edit]

"The Enderman is a mob to be introduced in version 1.8"

Shouldn't this be "The Enderman is a mob to be introduced in version 1.8"? –The preceding unsigned comment was added by LafinJack (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

The editor already stated it was so that it doesn't have to be changed when it is released. The edit was made by Quatroking: m (british > general english and removal of time)
He changed the context and switched my spelling around, calling me "British". (mildly offended) I didn't know American was the internationally accepted language. --HexZyle 10:27, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Quatro is actually dutch, not american.
As british myself, I can't really have a say. but I'd prefer if it were british english. it just sounds nicer imo. less lazy english, more pronounced english.--Kizzycocoa 10:32, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
No offense, but I never called *you* british, HexZyle, and Metre really is the alternative UK spelling of Meter.--Quatroking - MCWiki Administrator 11:08, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Ack you interrupted my edit :S Kinda pulling apart the English language here but metre is derived from the French metrum and the Greek metron, both instances the r coming directly after the t. You are correct, Quatroking, as far as the international standards of language are concerned...but that should be the original spelling. I guess the British got something right there :P --HexZyle 11:14, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Both "American" and "British" are not languages. The official language for both countries is English. They may be spoken slightly differently, but it's still the English language. Let's stop the racism, shall we? Mybabypetghast 20:56, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
My apologies. It's only slight, but i guess it still constitutes as racism. Sorry. --HexZyle 00:12, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Uh, yeah, I already said that I would. It wasn't intentional. --HexZyle 01:46, 6 August 2011 (UTC)


I would like to note that in the picture of the endermen their is a water source block atached to the rear of the huge mushroom, and was curious if anyone could explain why. i'd also like to know if endermen is the plural of enderman –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Thebrineishhero (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

That water source block is indeed strange; nice catch. I don't think anyone has an explanation for it at this point, though. And yes, Notch has referred to them as Endermen I believe. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 13:54, 1 August 2011 (UTC)


I was wondering what category these guys would fit into, hostile or neutral. Maybe for them we should make a new category: Scopophobic? --PaintTheFuture 16:11, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

After heavy discussion in the IRC yesterday, we determined hostile or neutral. likely neutral though. --Kizzycocoa 16:14, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
I'd say hostile personally. They're a bit like Spiders, though they take FAR less provocation to set off. --Warlock 16:27, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
well, you could argue the same for wolves. 1 hit, and they're angry. same with zombie pigmen. the trigger is physical. but Endermen's trigger is visual. --Kizzycocoa 16:49, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Well that's the difference though - you have to actually attack wolves or zombie pigmen to make them hostile. These guys you just have to look at. I personally think that leans closer to hostile. Neutral seems like you have to consciously choose to "make them hostile," whereas here you could accidentally make these guys hostile if you weren't careful. IMO, ultimately it comes down to not misleading people into thinking they can walk around these guys and be ok. But that's just my opinion :) --Warlock 17:13, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
The problem is that hostile is a very clearly defined term when referring to mobs: attacks the player as soon as the player is within range. The Endermen don't do that. They must have the player instigate the fight before they can begin the attack. The instigation is the act of looking directly at them, which, if we are defining neutral as peaceful until attacked, suggests a new category. Maybe irritable?  :D Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:24, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
You will have to decide whether to go on technicality (Verhalthur - Neutral) or morality. (Warlock - Hostile) There is no compromise for this one, but most likely an edit war will follow whichever you choose. --HexZyle 19:52, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
It should go under neutral for sure. Hostile mobs are the ones that attack you when they realize your existence; neutral mobs only attack when they are provoked in some way (e.g. being attacked, being looked at directly, etc). - DarkAuk 16:51, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
I suppose this makes sense. It depends on how we define a provocation. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:07, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

The word 'coincident' is the new 'ironic'[edit]

It's not a coincidence if Notch named it after Slenderman on purpose now is it? --AntonImaus 16:40, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Read his naming origins. this really isn't new. --Kizzycocoa 16:44, 1 August 2011 (UTC)

Block Moving[edit]

Does anyone know what kind of blocks they are able to move? I'm assuming sand, dirt, and grass, but I haven't found a confirmation of this. Spark01

Until Notch releases more information, no one really knows anything other than the appearance and the basic function. I'd say to look for that on Notch's twitter account in the near future. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:05, 1 August 2011 (UTC)
Alright, thanks. =) Spark01
If it turns out they can move any block i hope someone makes a bukkit plugin to disable or limit that. Imagine your all powerful mountain fortress being taken apart because one of them spawned next to it and started "working" lol. Now sand or dirt, most people don't use to build unless it's your first house and you're not up to punching a tree. --Scarasyte 09:14, 2 August 2011 (UTC)
It'll still play havoc with my landscaping. No more gardens unless there's a way to exclude these.DreadLindwyrm 15:38, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Oh man, if they can move anything then... Quick! Add two or three extra layers to your houses/shelters! -Hlast –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hlast (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

I've seen them holding stone blocks (as far as I saw the texture), but oddly enough they become sand blocks when picked up. Strange 21:13, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Can wolves attack?[edit]

I wonder if tamed wolves will be able to attack these things. Also, can a wolf looking at it make it hostile? ~Hlast –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Hlast (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Those are some very valid gameplay questions which, sadly, can't be answered until Notch releases more information. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 13:08, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
This does bring up an interesting point. I will attempt to do test this when 1.8 comes out. - DarkAuk 14:33, 3 August 2011 (UTC)
I think this is an interesting thought. Next time Notch does anything posty about Endermen, I want answers.Ajc 1254 14:51, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

That guy's head[edit]

In the new pictures of the Endermen with the two player in them, what's up with the guy on the left's head? --Deanm 00:05, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Nothing. The player has a pumpkin on his head, and the enderman has green eyes. So what? It's probably part of his attack animation.Ajc 1254 00:39, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
He means the green guy on the left. That's a zombie, not another player. Linebarrel 03:17, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Green Eyes[edit]

I noticed that the mob pics at the top of the page has Blue and red eyes. What about the green eyes in the newest endermen pic, and where did you get the red eyes?Ajc 1254 13:39, 4 August 2011 (UTC)


I saw two creatures in the background. I Photoshopped it with a red circle around them. You might want to zoom in on it though.

EDIT:I'm having troubles getting it on as a picture, so I'll make a topic somewhere with a link.

There we go.

EDIT: I also looked at the original, and I saw them better. They do appear to be something.Ajc 1254 17:22, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

They are most likely 2 blurry Endermen. They are blurry because of the JPEG quality of the image, because of fog distance, or perhaps because enderman become blurry at a distance. --HexZyle 06:41, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Arrows stuck inside of zombie?[edit]

In that image with the pumpkin head guy, it just looks like that those arrows are stuck into the zombie. Look at it, see?

--TangentDelta 17:25, 4 August 2011 (UTC)

Who didn't see that? Ajc 1254 18:39, 4 August 2011 (UTC)
I have already brought this up on the Talk:Bow page, which is a more relevant place for it. This is the enderman page. --HexZyle 06:39, 5 August 2011 (UTC)


In the new image with the pumpkin, the player is looking straight at the Enderman. There is no proof that the Enderman ignores you when you have the pumpkin, becaue the player AND THE ENDERMAN are both staring at each other. Please remove that ungrounded theory. EDIT: I had looked at the thread... I just couldn't find where he said that.-MinecraftBen 15:17, 5 August 2011 (UTC)

Ben, you do know that with the picture he said that per user request(that request was from a small group I'm in) he added that Endermen don't attack you when your wearing a pumpkin, since they're useless anyways.Ajc 1254 15:22, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
As stated above, yeah he did. Research before you post. - DarkAuk 15:51, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Also, notice that the Endermans eyes are still green. There is proof that he ignores you. -iSmile 7:03PM 6 August 2011(ETC)
Yes, that's true.Ajc 1254 12:29, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
Proof link or it didn't happen. Do not remove citation needed links, add citation instead. Image:TK.gif Talk 15:34, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I can see that this is being edit warred over. Guys, until we see Notch directly say, "The pumpkin prevents Endermen from getting angry at you," or find the original suggestion, we cannot call it confirmed. Yes, Notch did post a picture of himself in a pumpkin head looking at Endermen. That is not enough for definitive proof. I, myself, couldn't find the original suggestion, but I hope someone else can. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:36, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
Alright! To end this debate, I created a new template: [not in citation given], which you can add by typing {{Failed Verification}} or {{fv}}. Any time the source is credible and has info, but not enough to prove the claim, add this. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 17:59, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

[not in citation given]Ajc 1254 19:46, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

For a temporary end to this discussion I will list the information we can glean from the screenshot:
1. It is official. It was posted by xNotch, Notch's Reddit account.
2. It is a screenshot of Notch adding a new feature (Title: "Sure, I will add that!")
3. The player depicted is looking directly at the Enderman. (In third-person, the center of the head is the center of the screen)
4. The Enderman has green eyes, which indicate friendliness. [1]
However. This information is not enough to prove that the feature he added is the pumpkin helmet providing protection against Enderman hostility. It could be that he added friendly-only Enderman, or had them edited to only be friendly. We don't have any idea what the context of the screenshot is. We must find the original suggestion that Notch is responding to, and see the response to prove the claim that pumpkins prevent Endermen from becoming angry. The current source is not enough. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 15:26, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
 Thinking the same thing. That's exactly the truth. The pumpkin stuff is speculation. (as a side note, just to clarify I do know xNotch is official Notch.) Image:TK.gif Talk 16:31, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Oh, I assumed you did. I was just putting that there for those who don't follow Reddit. The username "Notch" exists which suggests that xNotch is fake, though it actually means that someone took that username before Notch started Reddit-ing, which may confuse some people. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 16:46, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Really now... the pumpkin doesn't have any use for Endermen? Then why did they not teleport to me when I looked directly at them with a pumpkin helmet? Really... sometimes we need to wait before adding or discussing this kind of stuff. Half these discussions are old and a joke and could have been verified with the actual content itself instead of with these kinds of proof. - Asterick6 04:01, 11 October 2011 (UTC)
(Grumble grumble grumble stupid effing conflicts) Astericks6, that occured long before the information was proved to be true and yet a few (fanboy?) users decided to add the information without any references because they had to make their self-righteous "Contribution" to the wiki without even first getting to know the wiki. if you check the date it says "9th August". That's necroposting. --HexZyle 04:11, 11 October 2011 (UTC)

Discussion of Verification (Moved from User talk:HexZyle)[edit]

With the photo, Notch said that wearing pumpkins warded off Endermen. No [citation needed] needed. Ajc 1254 13:40, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

Link, please. Until then, it's [citation needed]. Talk 14:09, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I believe you, despite not having seen the actual reference, but although you are fanatical about that suggestion, we can't base a wiki fact off your word alone. It's uncited until proven cited:

"To ensure that all Wikipedia content is verifiable, anyone may question an uncited claim by inserting a [citation needed] tag. Exercise caution before relying upon unsourced claims" --HexZyle 19:45, 8 August 2011 (UTC)

I have added a further template that tells the reader that the source is official and contains related information, but does not definitively prove the claim: [not in citation given] Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 19:55, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I appreciate your help, but the "citation needed" does its job just fine. How did you get to my talk page, anyway? --HexZyle 20:01, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
I watch the Recent Changes page far too much.  ;) I created the template because I thought that the source should stay due to it being official. I remember Notch responding to a Reddit user's request by adding the pumpkin feature, and the source did help the claim so I felt that it should remain until the the complete proof is found. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 20:10, 8 August 2011 (UTC)
We could just get past all this mess if you gave us a link to where Notch said this. The current citation does not contain any such info from Notch. Image:TK.gif Talk 14:11, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
The current source is Notch's Reddit account. However, it doesn't definitively prove the claim. Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 14:56, 9 August 2011 (UTC)
Notch is the fake and xNotch the real one. Image:TK.gif Talk 16:33, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

They emit smoke.[edit]

If you look closely at the picture, you can see that they are leaving behind a trail of smoke. However, it is in the newer picture, not the ones on the beach.

Perhaps the smoke makes sound that you hear? I think so, due to the fact that it could add to the overall 'creepiness' of the mob. Daniels Grant1 17:56, 5 August 2011 (UTC)Daniels_Grant1

Perhaps, they just teleported.Ajc 1254 18:01, 5 August 2011 (UTC)
Since they are a mob in development, its most likely Notch just added that recently. --HexZyle 01:46, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Good news![edit]

Because of their new skin, they are actually LESS scary now. And also, now you actually know when they become hostile. Good job, Notch! –The preceding unsigned comment was added by ISmile (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

New skin? When?!Ajc 1254 12:26, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

Not good news, if you can't handle the fear, too bad. I love the concept of a Big-Daddy-like behavior system, but not for these guys. I like their white eyes. - DarkAuk 17:01, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

I LOVED the white eyes. They seem to be a nod to Herobrine. Green-Red Eye change is cliched bull. They look like traffic lights. I'd rather have some sort of ambience when a hostile ender is moving towards you. Whining babies are ruining this mob, and I'm sick and tired of it. If you don't like it, another whining baby will probably make a mod that prevents them from spawning. I don't understand why this is so creepy and none of the other things that would normally be scary in minecraft (the nether, cave ambience, that moment when you look behind you and there's a hissing creeper in your face) aren't mentioned. Instead of being a stubborn Ox who won't allow any change, go with the friggin flow. Mybabypetghast 00:20, 8 August 2011 (UTC)


Thank you ajc ^_^! I made a post about my complaints about Ender eyes on the forum. P.S. Who even made this topic? I thought it was you until I made a speech flaming this sections point of view Mybabypetghast 18:20, 15 August 2011 (UTC)

Eye color significance[edit]

Did Notch ever say that the green eyes were due to them not attacking you? He changed their entire skin, they could easily be the new default color. Even less founded is that they have red eyes when hostile, I can't find him saying that anywhere. -- Mexican 13:16, 6 August 2011 (UTC)

He did. Check the Reddit link. Someone suggested it, and he said that he would add it, although it may have been a joke. For some reason it is no longer in our article... - DarkAuk 17:02, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
It is not officially announced. Let us never forget lanterns. until we have a viable, less jokey response, we're not counting it officially. --Kizzycocoa 17:05, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
No no, see he was saying that they won't attack you with the pumpkin helmet. However, he never mentioned the green eyes, which could simply be part of the new skin. -- Mexican 21:16, 6 August 2011 (UTC)
He never mentioned the eyes changing color, nro did he mention that the pumpkin would protect you. Image:TK.gif Talk 14:18, 11 August 2011 (UTC)

Notch said they would attack when the cross on the screen was no longer over them. With a pumpkin on your head, there is no cross. I can see that being a legit way to not get attacked. With a pumpkin on your head they probably couldn't see your eyes on them, or maybe they would think you're just really stupid and pose no threat. Either way, I think the pumpkin will stop them.~~ Quicken ~~ –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Quicken (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

As discussed here, it's possible the diamond drops Endermen had in the PAX demo was for the demo only, and existed to encourage interaction with them. –The preceding unsigned comment was added by FlamingSoySauce (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

Very true. Good point, that would help all the negativity towards the endermen. All the silly minecraft fanboys are likely to believe it too :D --HexZyle 02:07, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
I heard that it was just temporary, but I don't think i heard this from an official source, so we'll see. Shockman25 16:31, 28 August 2011 (UTC)
Time will tell. For now the wiki needing to be perfectly accurate to the current circumstances is working in the endermen's favour. I'm sure the diamand drops have already bought a lot of attention. --HexZyle 00:14, 29 August 2011 (UTC)
Well they seem to drop diamonds on the video, but from that, we cannot tell they do drop 0-2 diamonds, so removed that. Image:TK.gif Talk 15:08, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

It would ruin the game if a mob would drop diamonds. It is a temporary thing, very sure it will not be in the original game (of if it will, not for long). CosmoConsole my page! my talk! my contributions! 15:24, 29 August 2011 (UTC)

Is it just me....[edit]

.... or do endermen have creepy skeleton-like mouths? --Trollrilla 04:21, 28 August 2011 (UTC)

I see what you mean, At 0:33, the enderman appears to have a jaw, maybe they open their mouths when they are in aggressive mode? I took a picture that shows the opening in its mouth more clearly. --Fummy 16:47, 2 September 2011 (UTC)
Also the jaw can clearly be seen in the enderman texture file in the bottom left. --Fummy 17:49, 3 September 2011 (UTC)
A close up of the Jaw --Fummy 18:45, 5 September 2011 (UTC)
Um, this wiki seems to work differently from other ones, so I don't know how to edit pages or anything, so I guess I'll just write wheat I was going to say here...
The patterns in the skin file that resemble a jaw ARE actually the Enderman's "mouth". If you whatch the user-uploaded video from PAX (The one that is linked on the Blue Spider page) you can clearly see that Endermen have a gaping motuh that opens wide when they are presuing you. They seem to be phantom-like, as when their mouth opens, their entire head disconects from their body.

I was messing around and found an enderman and noticed it started emitting smoke and caught on fire way before any of the other mobs around... got video on it here: (around 1:40 in)

Should this be added to the article? RacinFreek 00:56, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

Blocks that Endermen pick up[edit]

We should compile a definitive list of blocks that Endermen will pick up. Here's what I've observed so far:

  • Gravel
  • Grass
  • Cobblestone
  • Dirt
  • Sand –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Mattbasta (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~
  • Leaves
  • Monster Spawners (
    • If they place the Monster Spawners, the Monster Spawner will be set to Pig spawner.
  • Wooden Planks Zoythrus 13:57, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Stone
  • Glass
  • Stone Bricks
  • Gravel
  • Lapis Lazuli Block
  • Gold Block Grhaal 15:11, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Obsidian Suirieko 05:16, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Chest Suirieko 06:33, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
    • All the items in the chest will fall when an enderman takes it.
  • Furnace Suirieko 06:33, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Dispenser Suirieko 06:33, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Diamond Blocks Suirieko 06:36, 12 September 2011 (UTC)
  • TNT (
  • Sandstone

So far they seem to take any blocks that isn't an entity. So far the only blocks I've observed that they wouldn't take is piston blocks. Suirieko 06:36, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Also, I've personally seen an endermen picking up bedrock, you can find images proving so on the minecraftforums. Someguy123 20:56, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

I edited the page with the block list I got from the source code (using MCP). See here for reference

--Taurose 01:43, 17 September 2011 (UTC)


I was playing with mob spawners in the 1.8 pre-release and I can confirm the following things:

  • Staring at it with a pumpkin on your head won't upset it.
  • They spawn in the same conditions as most hostile mobs and burn in the sunlight.
  • They can spawn in the rain, but the rain will hurt it.
  • Hitting it will make it hostile, even if you weren't looking at it.
  • They usually spawn holding a block. The block that they hold depends on the blocks around it. If they spawned in an abandoned mineshaft, they will likely be holding a wooden plank or stone.
  • When you look at it, they immediately turn to attack you, without hesitation.
  • Their eyes are white and glow like spiders'.
  • They appear to not be able to teleport up a certain number of blocks.

Water kills Endermen but rain?[edit]

I was walking through the rain where I found some Ender Pearls. I know that Endermen are damaged by water but they might also be damaged by rain. I have a screenshot. 640px –The preceding unsigned comment was added by Trekario (Talk|Contribs) Please sign your posts with ~~~~

my first enderman fight we landed in the water and he glew red, and i watched him slowly die in the water. i found it quite weird. i must try and get a pic of it. -Zargez

Endermen definetly will get hurt when they get i contact with water and even so in the rain. Proof: 640px

KleineMax 11:08, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Enderman hostility focus[edit]

When an Enderman, even when it targets you, is shot by a skeleton, he will attack the skeleton and afterward stay passive. Looking at him again will make him attack you. Grhaal 13:17, 10 September 2011 (UTC)


Zombies take damage 20 tmes from sunlight fire. they have 10 hearts. Endermen take damage 20 times from sunlight fire. they too, have 10 hearts. Grhaal 13:42, 10 September 2011 (UTC)


To get rid of an enderman, take a bow, and try to shoot fully charged (and fast) shots, without stopping to look directly at him. By doing so, you'll get rid of him preety easily. Can take from 2 to 5 shots.

Tested in creative mode for health with Endermen using a wooden shovel (one heart damage per hit). It took 20 hits for the Enderman to die. -icyblue87

Get on top of a tall small structure, and they cant fit up there. Then simply take out a bow and pick them off. CreeplyCreepingCreeper 01:42, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Are Endermen rarer underground?[edit]

200px I was in an Abandoned Mine Shaft when I came across two Endermen trapped in cobweb. Is this noteworthy? Enderguy 00:11, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

No they aren't rarer underground, they actually seem to be more common in mineshafts though. I set up a glass wall in a mineshaft to observe an enderman when I noticed a WHITE enderman wandering around in the background.


That Enderman isn't white; it's just washed out due to being at the edge of the fog (this happens with any entity). ディノ千?!? · ☎ Dinoguy1000 18:27, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

yes its notch's way of saying:"get the hell out of there theres an enderman near"

Can someone remove the video by the 12 year old?[edit]

It's worthless and no one wants to hear some whiney kid's voice. Why anyone can't just get rid of it is beyond me.

The 'How to Kill' section needs a lot of work.[edit]

Would appreciate it if we could remove the video and either replace it with text or at the very least something that properly meets the standards of the wiki. In any case, most likely the section has only been added in by the owner of his video to promote his Youtube channel.

Yeah... The entire article reads like a retarded 12 year old wrote it. I think someone should get around to fixing that, but the article has been locked, forever preserving the etchings of said retarded 12 year olds. --Recursive Hipster 06:23, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

Entity ID?[edit]

Does anyone know the entity ID for enderman, I need it so I can use it for spawners. I am making an enderman arena. -david

Yes. Using javap.exe (which comes with JDK) to disassemble um.class we find:
171: invokestatic #93 // Method a:(Ljava/lang/Class;Ljava/lang/String;I)V
174: ldc #42 // class gz
176: ldc #7 // String Enderman
178: bipush 58
And comparing this with other mobs, confirms that 58 is the Entity ID.
Pmw57 04:16, 12 September 2011 (UTC)


the endearment have a health of 10 hearts just like the zombie if you can get to them you can kill them with 2 hits of a diamond sword. 16:58, 11 September 2011 (UTC)

6 group endermen sighting?[edit]

I posted a video about me finding 6 Endermen in a single group, the 6th one wandered off so he appears to not be apart of the group. However he is. The video shows me killing them and their attack techniques which is the best I've seen on Youtube. The brightness is at its highest so you can see the distance between its first and last teleport. It was raining, but the biome was in the desert, so it refused to rain.

Ender Pearls don't affect the range.[edit]

I know there is sort of an edit war going on in the Ender Pearl page, but they do not affect endermen's range. The part stating that they do should be removed.

I can confirm this on multiple accounts, Ender Pearls do NOT reduce the range of an Enderman's sight range. Zoythrus 03:33, 12 September 2011 (UTC)

Also, it appears that endermen cant become aggressive from a certain distance. testing soon.||||

Enderman Pictures from pre-release[edit]

I'd like to[edit]

add content to the wiki page, specifically about them still teleporting to you if you're underwater and that being an absurdly easy way to kill them, as well as the fact they appear bright white whilst you are underwater looking at them whilst they aren't underwater (they revert to black once they teleport into the water.) Jorash

White Enderman Spotting[edit]

Hello, I have found a white enderman 5 minutes into this video. Can anyone confirm or deny these are real /watchv=ZIoCn1rCgIo is the end of the youtube link.

It's a possibility. The first time I played 1.8 I encountered a white spider. Might have something to do with whatever gives spiders and endermen glowing eyes.

It's called fog. It makes things look lighter. –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 00:11, 13 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't think so. If you are submerged underwater and you see an enderman with render distance on far, it's still white.
And under water has short fog no matter what your render distance is. Why do you think someone made the clear water mod? Because minecraft's water is all foggy! –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 03:17, 13 September 2011 (UTC)

Endermen and minecarts[edit]

Just thought I'd mention,I got an Enderman into a minecart, and I think it placed the block inside the minecart O-O anyone wanna confirm? I'm too lazy.

Purple Endermen[edit]

I saw Endermen with purple eyes and smoke (like portal particles) in a cave today in the official 1.8 release. Is this common? --Gredinus

I believe the particles is a bug. I just assumed it was because I had a custom texture pack (unless you are using one too). –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 12:50, 14 September 2011 (UTC)
I've seen normal endermen to, these had purple eyes and I dont use any texture packs. --Gredinus

I saw one too. it has purple particles AND purple eyes so it cant be a glitch and i am not using any mods or texture packs.

Here is a screenshot: --XLighterShadowX

I saw some today as well - I'd hazard a guess and say purple Endermen are cave/underground breeds, since the ones I saw today were in caves, as the above screenshot shows. Passo 13:51, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Just saw one above ground with purple eyes.

The page right now claims that the purple Endermen are the only ones in the final release of 1.8. This is not true. Standard Endermen are still far more common.

Wait, so there are now both purple and green Endermen? The purple version is not the "official" version, right? I personally think the black particles with green eyes looked a lot better.

Endermen, Blocks, and You[edit]

I was working on a nice tree road, when below me, an Enderman spawned. Not sure if it spawned holding a block or not, but it wound up with a block of wood from a nearby tree. After killing it, I looked around and it hadn't dropped anything but experience. I'll continue testing it, but I don't think Endermen drop blocks when you kill them. If that's the case, it'd probably be a good idea to hide those diamond blocks... Ederek Cole 17:27, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

But I did see one drop the block it was carrying when it chased me. Can someone show us the code that dictates their picking up and dropping habits? Zoythrus 21:05, 14 September 2011 (UTC) line 248 that method shows drop on death, and that ONLY drops ender pearls, there is a mod (of my making) that alters them to drop the block they are carrying though it only adds an extra 3 lines Nekosune 21:44, 15 September 2011 (UTC)
Yeah, I once saw an Enderman carrying a Diamond Ore and after I killed it, nothing drops TT.

Deletion/move request[edit]

This page as gotten filled with almost nothing more than random words,name changes,and stuff that should be on the forums.So I suggest deleting or moving this to an archive seeing as nothing on here should really be on here.This page is becoming worse than the blue spider talk page.

Anyway,Here is my vote for something to be done hereDesacobose 18:22, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

This talk page is nonsense... Plz assist.[edit]

Can someone delete / archive it so that we can move forward? This blathering makes it impossible to see what people are trying to suggest. Cleverlynamed1 20:39, 14 September 2011 (UTC)

Minor changes!

By Harishimomo

Under Trivia: "In the 1.8 pre-release, Endermen sound like zombies, which is almost certainly a placeholder until the release when the real sound will download into the resources folder."

should really be

"In the 1.8 pre-release, Endermen sound like zombies, which was a placeholder until the release when the real sound downloaded into the resources folder.


"In the final release of 1.8, the Enderman's eyes are now purple, and instead of emitting smoke they emit nether portal particles."

should be

"In the final release of 1.8, the Enderman's eyes were changed to purple, and instead of emitting smoke they would emit nether portal particles.

Finally, there should be more detail on how they pick up blocks (do they spawn with it? can they remove a block a player is standing on? can they lose a block they are holding? How does this block have any real meaning? does the type of block it has say the damage? WTF is it for?)

Endermen Drops[edit]

The enderment currently do NOT drop the block they are holding on death, this can be veirifed by looking at the 1.8.1 code here: the point that shows this is protected void a(boolean flag) line 248, the only thing it drops on death, is the ender pearls, the article should be updated to make that clear Nekosune 21:42, 15 September 2011 (UTC)

Frozen when you stare[edit]

I am unsure whether or not an enderman is completely frozen while you hold its gaze. On more than one occasion, I have had an enderman who appeared to be frozen teleport behind me while my crosshair was still over top of them. This seems like it could be an error on my part, so I was wondering if anyone could confirm that enderman can teleport while you are looking at them. 01:11, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

This has happened to me. It only happens when I decide to walk towards them while staring. I don't think they'll move if you don't move. This is all from my experience, I've done no testing. CaMoreno3 01:34, 16 September 2011 (UTC)


Endermen eyes are purple in final 1.8,not green.Someone needs to change that picture with the enderman in the white background.

Picking up blocks from behind blocks[edit]

I loaded up the game a few minutes ago and I saw one Enderman picking up a dirt block from behind a glass block. Does anyone have any experience like this? SpecB 13:10, 16 September 2011 (UTC)


We played on a SMP server, and found one of them. We stared at him but nothing happened. it emmits lila smoke and was attacking a skeleton. Then i punched him and... HE EXPLODES???? like a creeper, simply *boom*


It has been my observation that purple-eyed Endermen have purple smoke and green eyed Endermen have black/dark gray smoke. Can this be confirmed? Cadfael 19:00, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

I believe the portal particles coming out of purple Endermen's eyes has been mentioned in the article, 2nd sentence. The other particles seem to make sense, too, and if you've seen them you might as well add them. What I am more curious about is the difference between eye colors (I haven't been able to play 1.8 yet). what causes it? Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 19:03, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
I don't think a cause of eye coloration has been discovered yet. Cadfael 19:16, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Wait, green-eyed and purple-eyed Endermen coexist in 1.8? i thought the greenies were removed for the new purple ones....Zoythrus 19:19, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
I have heard that they coexist, but I can't know for sure. I have much testing to do when I can play 1.8.  :T Verhalthur (talk)(contribs) 19:20, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
As an avid player and wiki admin, I can confirm they exist. I would not revert and protect images without first-hand expirience. I am unsure however if eye colour is random, or tied to the world itself. I have not seen them co-exist. I have seen them exist in individual cases. --Kizzycocoa 19:26, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
I can never see them together though, which is sorta frustrating. ever since the official 1.8 came out, i only see purples. Zoythrus 19:52, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
I have the exact opposite experience. except I've sometimes seen purple. only sometimes. --Kizzycocoa 20:05, 16 September 2011 (UTC)
Endermen's eyes are PURPLE. Look in minecraft.jar. They are PURPLE, NOT GREEN and ONLY create purple "smoke". --Trollrilla 01:05, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Enderman and water[edit]

An Endermen won't attack you if your in water. They'll just stare at you and vanish. When you get a few feet away from water, THEN they attack you. 22:04, 16 September 2011 (UTC)

Different behavior[edit]

During my game tonight, I noticed that Endermen may have different behavior when they are on the surface or underground. Underground, no matter how long I stared at them, they never cared, while on the surface they immediately started attacking me (they also seem to have a range of 60 meters or so, but I'll leave that to more capable hands). This would make sense if it was on purpose, since you can easily stumble upon and look at an Enderman by accident when you are underground, in a dark tunnel, so it might be that, say, they don't care if there is at least one block above their heads. Now *that* I will test tomorrow. SpecB 01:49, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

No, got it. It is not due to them being underground or not, but being in a lit area or not. I tried looking at one on the surface when I wandered around town, and it wouldn't care about me, but it walked away a few meters, outside the lights, and it immediately became interested. I'm not sure what light level that was, but I'm sure someone with leet haxing abilities can figure it out. SpecB 17:07, 17 September 2011 (UTC)


that is IT. I am getting PICTURE PROOF of green eyed endermen. this whole charade is REDICULOUS. you are refusing to believe not only the textures, but also that one creature can have different eye colours. it is STUPIDITY.

I have been in the source, and there are 2 endermen images. one without eyes, and one with white eyes for colour changing, like grass. PUT TWO AND TWO TOGETHER PEOPLE. >.> --Kizzycocoa 11:01, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

THERE. got the picture. go to File:2011-09-17_12.02.33.png. reverting and fixing all edits now.--Kizzycocoa 11:04, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
...wait. what the...
checking the textures.
how are they coloured? they were white not two days ago!
this is....
you know what? screw it. I don't even care anymore. mojang are the WORST trolls ever.
reverting all my edits. --Kizzycocoa 11:11, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
Kizzy, you really should listen to the evidence instead of getting worked up. There's only purple eyes in the files, they're separate from the normal enderman texture because it's the only way to make them glow (like spiders), the original enderman texture has blank white eyes, it's not darker in the middle like the actual enderman eyes are, so colouring it in-game wouldn't work, they'd just be plain green (they also wouldn't glow in the dark).
There's also no reason to have a texture for the purple eyes, then colour the green ones in-game. They'd do both colours in-game if there were going to at all... –User:Ultradude25 (User:Ultradude25/t|User:Ultradude25/c) at 11:24, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
The confusion was probably cause by the fact that the actual enderman texture has white eyes, while they use another texture just for the eyes to make them glow purple. --Trollrilla 11:31, 17 September 2011 (UTC)
I was working off my own evidence. I recall the separate eye texture being plain white, with NO colour, much like grass.
but it seems that Mojang decided just to screw us over by then going back to coloured eyes.
but I don't care what anyone has to say about that texture. I saw the eye texture as white when it was released. with my own two eyes, I saw that texture as alike to Grass. now, it is different. that's all I know.
also, I'm betting £50 that the eye colour changes again. a further £5 that such an eye colour change is made just to stir up the wiki community, as had nearly every other update they've released. though, at least they gave the mooshroom a name this time. --Kizzycocoa 11:33, 17 September 2011 (UTC)

Picking up blocks[edit]

I need info whether enderman picks up these blocks: doors, iron bars, monster spawners?

None of them will be picked up
--Taurose 13:09, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Endermen page needs cleaning up[edit]

At the moment this page seems to be a hybrid of pre-release and release information, for example since release, endermen can no longer pick up bedrock, yet it is full of references to that. Nekosune 20:40, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

Vine Defence[edit]

So I've been having trouble with these guys lately, and I heard from somebody that the endermen could only pick up what the guy called "building blocks" ie: dirt, cobblestone, not torches, not doors, etc. So I went on the wiki, and a section has a table of things they can move. The page says specifically how they can NOT move vines, and covering a building with vines would keep them from taking the blocks beneath the vines.

So, I happily spend the next couple of minecraft days vining my house. then when complete, i stood on its roof and provoked an enderman as a test. He teleported to the side of my house, and the very first thing he did was take a block of cobblestone out from under the vines. Sadly, I have no evidence to back this up. Could this be tested for verification? Fishfryer 23:43, 18 September 2011 (UTC)

it seems I misread the code, they can take blocks from behind other blocks, so yes, vines will not defend, neither will making the walls out of any block they can not pick up.Nekosune 23:47, 18 September 2011 (UTC)
Thank you, that's just what I needed to know. Nice to see some people on this page aren't just raging about eye color.Fishfryer 00:19, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

About teleporting...[edit]

Are they able to teleport through walls/water/lava or the whole distance they teleport must not be obstructed? Xeoxer 05:57, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

--Water and lava I assume they can because anyoything can naturally go through it Harishimomo

Endermen reach . . . limitations?[edit]

So it's been noted Vines do not keep Endermen from taking blocks. It's also noted that they reach "two deep". Generally lots of defense questions are answered with "use torches to light areas properly" and "build a moat". It's worth noting in response that Endermen can walk into lighted areas from elsewhere and it is very rare to find a spot to build where they wouldn't just wander up, take a brick, and you find it ages later as you are running by. (Or on a multiplayer server, someone else comments.)

Here's the question about the reach though, because I posited the question to myself while working on a redesign:

"So what if I make waterfalls down the outer wall? Can the Endermen "reach" through the water?"

If so, then this new building project on the multiplayer server is going to look much different. 08:06, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

They basically can take blocks from up to two blocks from their position horrisontally so if you cover in water, they would have to go in the water to take more then a wall block Nekosune 10:27, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

How about some evidence that they can reach through 2 before tossing it onto the page hmm? Just because they can reach through running water, (which is a block you can walk through) doesnt mean that they can reach in 2 blocks!!!!! remove it for now. User:Harishimomo 19 September.

The evidence is the 1.8.1 decrypted source code, the code for picking a block to take looks like this:

int i = MathHelper.floor_double((posX - 2D) + rand.nextDouble() * 4D);

int l = MathHelper.floor_double(posY + rand.nextDouble() * 3D);

int j1 = MathHelper.floor_double((posZ - 2D) + rand.nextDouble() * 4D);

int l1 = worldObj.getBlockId(i, l, j1);

so no, it will not be removed as you demanded, it is a verified occurence. Nekosune

Original Poster here: I didn't add that here, I got it off some other sources. I am trying to debate how to re-build my tower structure when the multiplayer server I'm on re-generates their world (1.9). Assuming Endermen don't change behavior, I want to figure out an arrangement to keep them OFF MY BUILDING :) Recently I noticed they were spawning on the "inward slopes" and threw down torches. I think enemies do not spawn on Slabs so I may use THOSE instead to cap off each tier rather than torch-spam the outside. The Waterfall on the outside could be problematic, but I can make it two deep with a lot of tweaking. I might have a less work-intense method but it depends on whether it's been *VERIFIED* they can reach one-deep through blocks they don't normally pick up. If so, doubled fences with torches on top are making a comeback to keep monsters out of my area. With Fence Gates for control, and an inner moat. (I *may* decide to plant my Sugar Cane there :P) I really need to get a user handle here . . . 12:48, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

it has been verified, look at the code above Nekosune 20:19, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Enderman dungeon?[edit]

Look at this video: [2] Is it true that enderman spawners exist naturally? I scanned my whole map with MCEdit but found NONE enderman spawners. I heard that the chance of dungeon becoming enderman's is 1% Is it true? Xeoxer 21:01, 19 September 2011 (UTC)

Nope. According to the 1.8.1 source, when a dungeon is created, it has a 25% chance for skeleton, 25% chance for spider, and 50% chance for zombie. --MinerHax444 01:13, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
So the video's a fake? A mod? A schematic? Spawner GUI? Xeoxer 13:33, 20 September 2011 (UTC)
It's easy to do, just go into MCEdit and change a spawner to an enderman spawner. Scar7752 :3 17:10, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

moving of snow blocks[edit]

apprantly they do not move snow blocks? thats makes it useful to make houses out of them if u spawn in the snow biome. they dont move crafting tables too. ( do i need to show a screenshot? ) Hat sg 17:05, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Snow biome are gone with 1.8. Rumor is it will return with 1.9. That means if you had a snow biome in your world. it may still have ice and snow, but once the ice melts it will not freeze and snow will not fall. So i guess get your shovel and gather your snow balls now.

Endermen and Bedrock[edit]

The code clearly shows they will no longer pick up bedrock, in the pre-releases, they used to be able to, but now they can only pick up the blocks as listed in the following array: Furthermore even if some bug allows them to pick bedrock up, bedrock should NOT be added to the list of items the code allows them to, as it is not on that list, that is why it is called a bug Nekosune 20:18, 20 September 2011 (UTC)


Anyone know where the name Enderman came from? I have to wonder if Notch knew it was such a stupid idea that it would be the end to Minecraft. That said, I am no longer playing.. So it ended it for me :)

I spoke too soon........

"By the way, I will nerf the endermen block carrying. It was a horrible idea."!/notch/status/116186387878920193

Not sure why a mob with a unique ability completely ruined Minecraft forever. Please elaborate. 22:50, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Block Testing Correction[edit]

The page states that Endermen cannot pick up Obsidian or Bedrock, but the source (9) it is linked to explicitly states that Endermen can pick up ANY solid block. The code linked to at (8) is an array of the blocks endermen are limited to picking up, nowhere in it does it state they can pick up any block. the source code checks each block it looks at against this array, if it is not true, or not in the array, it can't pick it up However this is only true as of 1.8 official release, during pre-release endermen COULD pick up any block Nekosune 01:41, 22 September 2011 (UTC)

Enderman Spawning[edit]

I was just testing a 3-block high mob farm and noticed the lack of enderman pearls. This made me think that they need a 4-block high space to spawn. Can anyone confirm this?

Tested might have been the lighting but my spawner did crapDesacobose 21:41, 29 September 2011 (UTC)

Origin of Endermen dying in water[edit]

Apparently Burnie's kid gave Notch that idea.-- 04:37, 26 September 2011 (UTC)

Exposed to Sunlight[edit]

I was playing around on the 1.9 Pre-Release 2 and I noticed that when Endermen are exposed to sunlight, they seem to teleport randomly and stop attacking me. Should I include this in the article? --Trollrilla 01:37, 30 September 2011 (UTC)


Stop with Weeping Angles[edit]

this guy made a weeping angle mod just to show you the TRUE horrors and not the endermen. you can clearly see them move and are easy to spot. WEEPING ANGLES CAN MOVE TWICE THE SPEED AND COMES IN GROUPS OF 10-30! SO GET THE MOB AND THEN TELL ME THE ENDERMEN ARE SCARIER THEN THE ANGLES YOU F---ING TROLLS!!!!!!!!!!!! link:
