Slender Man Mob
Slender Man became a massive horror icon back in 2012 when developers Parsec Productions took the fable and turned it into a first-person survival horror video game. Since then, Slender Man is widely known as the mysterious tall figure with no face that terrorizes anyone who is unfortunate enough to stumble upon him. With this mod, horror icon becomes an extremely rare mob that appears in forest biomes.
If players happen to attract him they’ll receive a system message stating that Slender Man has found you. From there on it becomes a race to flee the area and his sights in less than fifty seconds. Starring at him, your character will receive blindness with nausea for a few seconds, during which Slender Man will actively attempt to kill you. This particular mob can break light sources along with glass, doors, and trapdoors. For players who are going through the game in easy mode, the mob can be killed with any sword but for those on normal or above, you won’t stand a chance unless you have a diamond sword equipped.
