These are known as Neutral Mobs. Endermen will attack if you stare at them as well. ZombiePigmen and Wolves will gang up to kill you if you anger them.


These are players in the game that steal from other players in the game. They could destroy your stuff, kill you, and take your items.

These players could be considered the "trolls" of Minecraft.

A mod is something you install to Minecraft to change how it's played. There are mods that could make additions to Minecraft such as more mobs, tools, or armor, mods that could make the difficulty easier, or even remove features in the game. There are also mods that you can install to improve the performance or FPS (Frames Per Second) of the game such as Optifine. To install mods to the game you could use other programs such as Magic Launcher, 7-Zip, or Win-Rar. Some mods won't require you to use programs but it may be more efficient.


A Plugin is like a mod that you would install to your server. Other players don't have to install the mod to their Minecraft. The owner of the server has to install the plugin into the server.

Vanilla is Original Minecraft. No Plugins, or Mods installed into the world or server.
