In my opinion these "secret mobs" are just little things added my mojang to make the game look cooler. But, what is going to happen 2 months from now? Explosive chickens? As random as this game already is I think that mojang should stop with the random mobs. Not that these mobs aren't fun but the game is getting very...scatter-brained

These mobs aren't secret. Or new.


Spider Jockeys are bloody old news.

Powered Creepers have been in since weather was added (that's like, 1.5).

Giants were around for one version and were then taken out. Their coding is just left overs. Not an easter egg. They've been in since like, before beta.

"Radioactive" creepers are just creepers struck by lightning.

Spider jockey are spiders with skeletons riding them. They are the dream of many people, because it's a super rare mob.

I've seen a few, they aren't actually a real bad threat. If anything they should be less rare like a 1/10 or 1/20 chance to appear when a spider spawns instead of 1/100.

Considering spider jockeys have been around since alpha and charged creepers have been around for over 7 months, I'm not sure why you're concerned about what will happen 2 months from now.

New?
That . . . what. Spider Jockeys have been out for a year, charged creepers since the weather update, Giants were in Alpha and removed . . . the only new 'secret mob' is the cave spider, going by the theme you presented.
But even cave spiders aren't really secret ._.

I . . . don't really know how you managed to think Giants were new though XD

Giants are simply in the game's coding. They were never added, but can be spawned easily. Plus you're forgetting "Humans". Zombies with the player skin.

I believe after the halloween update when a spider spawns it has a 1/100 chance of being a spider jockey, although they seem to be more common since 1.8. Charged creepers were added in Beta 1.5 with weather. Giants have been around since survival test, and even spawned naturally at the time, but were removed in a later survival test version, leaving their code leftover. Now they don't spawn naturally or from a spawner, but can be hacked in through mods.
TL;DR(I think, I have no idea if that's the correct phrase or not: The former 2 can occur naturally but rarely, and the last one is just a test of a bigger zombie model left in from early survival test versions.
Users lack the mental capacity to have intelligent discussion, and mods lack the mental capacity to make intellegent decisions... I give up trying to share my intelligence with the world.
