Bats... one of the most useless mob in the game.. most people hates them, but i found 5 uses of them, both on survival and on creative modes.

1. Target practice :
Have no friend? need a target for bow shooting? then the bats are good for you! bats' move are hardly predicted, it will sharpen your skill in archery for sure!

2. Pet :
Why not have a pet bat just for the heck of it?

3. Flying mobs:
since 1.5, by using command blocks, any mobs can be stacked on top of bats, by making the bat invisible, it will make the mob fly

4. Spookiness :
Add bats on your horror maps, for more spookiness

5. Texture packs :
Bats can be retextured into many different things, think creatively, and the bat can be put into good use

:P That, nothing is...
5 more reasons:
1: to drive you insane with the squeakiness you thought you had escaped from in cod by playing Minecraft.
2: To pretend that Jeb is doing something. (I mean seriously, we could at least have bat poop to make glowing blocks)
3: to set themselves on fire and fly around squeaking
4: to convince you to spawn 1000 of them to scare your bud, and then the server crashes.
5: to be absolutely useless, as all these reasons are hardly a good reason to add a useless mob to the game.
at least steves had those fun wavy arms...
1st of all...Steve? not steve...not 100% Important more like 99.99.05.99.05.05.05.99% Important

2nd of all, They're called Monsters(or Humans)

At first I thought this was going to be a suggestion on how they can be useful by implementing 5 uses that can be in the game.

Don't give map makers any ideas!
I am a mapmaker, so that's already water under the bridge. I simply need the combination of 1.8 and mcpatcher resource packs to begin my works. Be prepared for some interesting adventures once that combo comes to reality.

You've forgot another thing, to be Batman! Also if you don't give a Bat a Name Tag they will despawn.

now i got 5 reasons bats are useless (dont worry im not offending your post :) it is a good post this is just what most players hate about bats)
1.they do not attack players.
2. whenever you try to put them in areas were you want them to stay they just fly out
3. there not tamable
4.if you spawn too many it can make your game lag and might give you head ake (but all mobs do that
5. they do nothing
