Do mobs have hidden, intelligent behaviours? I once noticed that an Endermen picked up a block from near my mine entrance, and it collapsed, and at other time a Zombie picked up an item from my chest. Were they only coincidences?

  • Depends what you count as hidden, but endermen don't intentionally place blocks in a specific place (just wherever they're able to), and zombies shouldn't be able to take items from chests.

  • I use Vanilla Minecraft. Perhaps it was an item accidentally dropped near the chest.

  • @John most probably, since they only get things in the ground.

No, mobs don't have hidden behaviors unless you count the killer bunny and mobs needed to summon by command. There have been removed mobs no longer in Minecraft that may have been considered secret with different behaviors. There is plenty more on mobs on the Wiki. https://minecraft.wiki/w/Mob
