Are there any mobs in Minecraft, other than villagers, who exist for a reason other than to be slain by the player?

Would someone please explain why this is being voted down? – Young Guilo May 31 '13 at 17:39
Creepers love a nice conversation but you have to get very close – Ben Brocka May 31 '13 at 18:05
Because the question is unclear? Either you made it silly on purpose, which made it unclear, or it's just not well written. You can't talk to villagers in the first place, so what are you looking for? Are you looking for other human-like mobs? Are you asking if there are more villages? Are you asking where the other real-life human players are? What problem are you trying to solve? We can't solve "lonely" for you, so you need to reword your question to be about something we can solve. – SevenSidedDie May 31 '13 at 18:11
Try "Are villagers the only mob you can interact with socially?" You can always fix a question, and then people can change their votes on it. – SevenSidedDie May 31 '13 at 18:16
I reworded the question. I feel for @Young Guilo who seems to be learning how to use our website by making every mistake in the book. – Ender May 31 '13 at 20:15
