# Aggressive enderman tag with /summon?

How to spawn a aggressive enderman?

I am making a slenderman map and want to use /summon to spawn slenderman (enderman with a texture pack). I don't know the data tag.

### There's no NBT tag for this.

From this thread on the Minecraft Forum:

Endermen do not have any extra NBT tags for doing something like this. Endermen attack based on player input; even if we could manipulate whether they were angry or not, there wouldn't be a way to target an unknown player.

A possible workaround would be to force the player to briefly look the enderman in the eye by spawning him directly in front of the player.

The wiki has a list of all NBT tags per entity.

If you want to summon an enderman which attacks players on sight, you could try this summon command:

/summon EnderMan ~0 ~1 ~0 {Anger:1}


Or whatever command to summon an enderman but set the "anger" NBT tag to 1. That's it

Correct me if I am wrong.

• Enderman don't have an Anger tag. The only mobs that do are Zombie Pigmen. Wolves have an Angry tag. Furthermore, neither work correctly with the \summon command, this is a confirmed bug though. All NBT tags per entity are listed here – MrLemon May 27 '14 at 13:22
