I feel this is related to the thread.
Creepers win this hands down, even before when they weren't that life threatening, the ssss boom would still scare the shit out of you.
Now it's just OH FUCK they're gonna one shot me.
Endermen are cute, carrying blocks and stuff. They're not scary in the slightest. And even then when you get up and smack them, they're not even tough.
Spiders used to scare the piss out of me, but now that you can outrun them and send them half way across the map with the charge attack they're kind of weak.
Zombies and Skeletons are still ez sauce.
But you know what though, how come nobody has mentioned any of the nether mobs??? Pigmen can swarm you and rape your ass hard if you don't have a bow. And those ghasts...
You can't tell me the first time you went into the nether you didn't yell "JESUS SHITTING FUCK, WHAT THE FUCK WAS THAT?!" when a gigantic, flying, thing made a cat-like shriek and shot a fucking ball of fiery TNT at you.
Creepers dont disturb me that much as i learned to check EVERYWHERE before i go on a trip. Now endermen... those assholes are destroying environment even without my presence.
Creepers are a joke, and can be beaten just by looking at them and spamming left click, without moving, they will never get close enough to explode, -so threatening-. And if one sneaks up on you, if you have half decent reflexes by the time you hear the Kasssssss you can move away from the sound, you know he is behind you if you don't see him, so you take very minimal damage.
The Enderman is even easier though, the skeleton is the only even slightly threatening mob in the game. And they have huge weaknesses as well.
I have to be in the minority and go with Endermen.
They like to spawn in the tight caves down below and deny me access further down the way. Almost aggro'd one last night while playing online.
I chase down Creepers, however; so that I get them before they get me.
looking at the new 1.9 stuff, it seems them griefing will be the least of my problems unless I build a dirt house. ( so first day they might rip a hole in your dirt house roof and monsters will come in, that'd be scary)
they'll teleport OUT OF THE WAY OF ARROWS! that was how I killed them! they teleport when you try to hit them with a sword too! My fear is renewed, rather than "ok, how should I approach this annoying griefer mob" it's "oh god don't look at it don't look at it..." because it sounds like the things will be damn near impossible to kill.
and I'll be forced to hunt them anyway because ender pearls are so useful! curse you notch!
Well. now with the new 1.9 Pre-release 2 Endermen are way more scary than before. they teleport out of the water, it appears that they no longer burn in the sun light (might be a bug) and they teleport randomly! Making it more unpredictable (Not to metion their ability to dodge arrows). Creepers are slow, and the "sprint+hit" makes it easy to kill when alone ...
But they are never alone
deff creepers enderman are retarded and much easier to kill + the new charged bow is OP
I always hate to encounter creepers in a cave, but I'd equally hate to encounter an endermen on the surface. Creepers are cute when they run at you from 50 blocks away on the surface while Endermen are too tall to get in some places in caves.
I guess what I'm saying is when it comes down to leaving home, always bring a sword with you.
edit: solidifying that answer, ESPECIALLY both if you have a lot of endermen. just tried a custom map with endermen spawners, you spend so much time trying to avoid looking at them the creepers can sneak up on you easily.

I think the enderman mechanic was a good START they just need more to make them scary.
