Endermen are humanoid, stick figure styled creatures with long arms and legs, glowing purple eyes, and have a purple particle effect surrounding their body. Though not directly hostile, they are apparently extremely territorial and will attack anything that looks them in the face or attacks them first.
Endermen are neutral 3-block tall mobs from the video game Minecraft that spawn in huge numbers. They are group of extraterrestrial creatures from an alternate dimension adjacent to our own known as The End. They were heavily inspired by the with their design and behavior being very reminiscent of his, most notably their abnormal height and lanky arms.
On July 26th 2011 Minecraft's creator, Markus "Notch" Persson posted a screenshot of a new mob added to the Beta 1.8 version of the game on his Google + account. In a Reddit post from the same day, Notch announced their official name would be Enderman as a reference to a user called drodeznop who jokingly referred to them as Slender Man. Because of the similarities in names and abilities with the Slender Man mythos, 4chan users from the /v/ board launched a petition to change the Enderman’s name to "Far Landers". The petition failed and the name has remained the same since the original Reddit post. Notch even wrote a tweet joking about the initiative.
