The Endermite is a rare and small mob in Minecraft which is associated with Ender Pearls and Endermen.
When a player throws an Ender Pearl, the pearl will teleport them to the location it lands in. When this happens, there is a small chance that an Endermite will spawn in the spot the player teleported to.
The Endermite, when spawned, will chase the player to attempt to attack. They behave similar to Zombie Piglins as well, with all Endermites in an area chasing down a player if they only hit one.
Endermites are arthropods and are therefore affected by the Bane of Arthropods enchantment, taking extra damage from weapons that have it.
After two minutes, an Endermite will despawn.
The Endermite drops nothing but 3 EXP.
