The Creeper is one of the main and most iconic Minecraft monsters. Unlike others of their kind, Creepers cannot attack directly, instead having to blow themselves up to damage enemies (a notable exception can be seen in the Survival Test mode).
A creeper can be hit by a lightning bolt, charging them up and boosting their explosive power. They are named Charged Creepers.
