Have you ever wanted a headless mob, or a mob that reacts to stealth-type mechanics? This mob would be like a wither skeleton, but with a few important differences: it doesn't drop skulls (sorry, it's headless), and it relies on senses other than sight! This mob would not react to players unless they attack a mob, walk, jump, or run. After sensing either of these actions, they would run to the place they last sensed the player and attack. If they don't connect with anything, they will ignore the player again. Players can ambush these creatures by sneaking until they attack, or by waiting in place until a headless skeleton walks over to them. These creatures are completely unnaffected by blindness and night vision, and can "see" through player's invisibility. They would spawn in the soul sand valley, as well as in the Land of the Lost (if implemented). They would add a fun twist to combat, and be a humorous way to show undead degradation. Crippled crawling zombies and skeletons seem a little creepy to me, but headlessness seems like a funnier part of an undead skeleton's life. I also think they would add more life to the aforementioned biomes, in a way both humorous and mildly creepy.
