Endermites are one of Minecraft's creepiest mobs. They are generally found in the End biome and sometimes spawn when Endermen teleport.
Many players have never seen an Endermite due to their rarity. However, players who have seen these mobs will never forget them.
What are the 5 things that players didn't know about Endermites in Minecraft?
#5 - Smallest Mob
Players may be unaware that Endermites are the smallest mob in Minecraft. The image above shows that they are even smaller than rabbits.
Due to their size, players may not even know that they can accidentally spawn one with their pearl.
#4 - Arthropod
Many players may not know that Endermites are technically Arthropods.
This means that they take extra damage when up against a weapon enchanted with Bane of Arthropods. This can be useful for players who commonly throw Ender Pearls.
#3 - Ender Rivalry
For some reason, Endermen do not like Endermites. Endermen will begin to attack Endermites that are spawned from pearls.
Endermites spawned from a Spawn Egg will only be attacked in the Bedrock Edition. In the upcoming Caves and Cliffs update, Java Edition Endermen will also attack Endermites spawned from eggs.

This is great news for players who hate dealing with them. However, if they have been named with a name tag, they will not despawn.

- Endermites have a 5% chance to spawn when an Ender Pearl is thrown and lands.
