They walk around and place random dirt blocks EVERYWHERE.

If struck by lightning the item in their hand switches to water or lava.


Some would call me Tim
Yeah... he's jokingly called it the Enderman. I'm looking forward to hearing more about these, they seem creepily adorable.

also... it seems whoever took the picture is standing under a giant mushroom.. another odd addition to 1.8


They get the name Enderman from the mythical creature "Slenderman", a creature with a skinny body and multiple long, bony appendages. Look it up on youtube, its a pretty good creepy pasta. As far as I'm concerned, thats all it is.

I do like the name Enderman, though, as it references some kind of mystical, or otherwise unknown entity that you cannot explain, but it is always present.

Great... now greifers have another excuse.

"It wasn't me I swear, it was an Enderman! It was the one that made that hole in the castle and removed items from the chest!"

Actually, these look pretty awesome.
