Minecraft – All hostile and friendly creatures

Minecraft has so many creatures that it’s almost impossible to know what they all are and what they do. Also, it’s always good for a player to know if a creature is hostile, peaceful, or neutral (which only attacks when attacked). So at Critical Hits we decided to make this post that is all about that very topic!

Minecraft creatures

The two Minecraft creatures listed below are the only two bosses that the game has:

  • Ender Dragon – The final boss in the game, only appears at the end and can be resummoned.
  • Wither – The only way to spawn this boss is to build it.

Minecraft is an electronic game of the sandbox and survival genres that has no specific objectives to be achieved and allows players a great deal of freedom of choice in the way they play. However, there is an achievement system and a final boss to defeat.
