“Creepers are common hostile mobs that use a suicide-style attack: They approach players and then explode, causing massive damage to players, entities, and blocks within a short radius.”
Creepers are common in the Overworld, at light levels of 7 or less.
Creepers will run away from Ocelots (both tamed and wild). If lightning strikes within 3-4 blocks of a Creeper, it will become a Charged Creeper, significantly increasing its explosion damage. If a Skeleton kills a Creeper by shooting it with its bow, the Creeper will drop a Music Disc.
