The list should go up to CR 30 since the Terrasque is that high.

Anyone know how to make the system organize by type and size? If so please tell me how if you can. Azernath (talk) 12:15, 8 April 2015 (MDT)

I've added CRs up to 30, and a "by type" list. If we start getting a lot of monsters, I may need to move this to another page. Marasmusine (talk) 15:12, 8 April 2015 (MDT)

How did you learned to make templates for this website? Azernath (talk) 18:54, 8 April 2015 (MDT)

Why are aberrations listed as "aberrant" in the Monsters section? SirSprinkles (talk) 16:40, 2 July 2016 (MDT)

NPCs and Miscellaneous Creatures[edit]

I've divided this into Monsters, NPCs and Miscellaneous Creatures - per the Monster Manual appendices. Tag creature pages with Category:NPC and Category:Miscellaneous Creature as appropriate. Marasmusine (talk) 06:09, 4 October 2015 (MDT)

Would it make sense to merge the Monsters and Misc creatures sections? It strikes me that the distinction can be kind of arbitrary. Lemiel14n3 (talk) 08:26, 19 October 2015 (MDT)
That's the distinction in the Monster Manual. I've found it quite helpful in encounter design actually. 08:35, 19 October 2015 (MDT)

Useful Links to Monster Manuals[edit]

Reason: This guy put all the monsters into one place! You cant deny that is awesome. It works great since with a little conversion, you could add all these to any edition you desire. I saved every page for offline use thus far. Not sure how many has been added since I last 'saved' everything. The site does have occasional issues of inaccessibility, or rather it used to, for whatever reason. Still, I haven't found a site as good as this one yet.

I'm sorry, I had to remove the link. That website reproduces text of the 2nd Edition AD&D books, which are still under copyright. Also, this is the talk page for 5th edition creatures.Marasmusine (talk) 09:55, 29 April 2016 (MDT)

THAT I did not know...I had speculation, however even that was vague and controversial so it was hard to get actual facts from a legal stand point. G of TierArea (talk) 12:46, 29 April 2016 (MDT)
I admit to using that website myself when converting things from AD&D to 4th and 5th edition! Although I do own the 2nd edition AD&D core books. Marasmusine (talk) 12:51, 29 April 2016 (MDT)


Perhaps we could include links from the creature pages to their 5e SRD equivalents? AngelicBahamut (talk) 01:01, 7 February 2017 (MST)

What do you mean? (Give example) Marasmusine (talk) 01:29, 7 February 2017 (MST)
You know, 5e Monsters to 5e SRD:Monsters, 5e NPCs to 5e SRD:NPCs, 5e Miscellaneous Creatures to 5e SRD:Miscellaneous Creatures, and 5e Creatures to 5e SRD:Creatures. AngelicBahamut (talk) 14:41, 7 February 2017 (MST)
Like what you did to 5e Monsters? SirSprinkles (talk) 15:07, 9 February 2017 (MST)
Precisely! AngelicBahamut (talk) 15:13, 9 February 2017 (MST)
Can I do that to the other creature pages (5e Miscellaneous Creatures and 5e NPCs)? AngelicBahamut (talk) 18:59, 9 February 2017 (MST)
Can that now be done to 5e Creatures by an admin? AngelicBahamut (talk) 00:05, 12 February 2017 (MST)


All creatures that are shapechangers have this fact listed in their race, but that creates issues like at the imp where the creature isn't listed in the appropriate tag (Category:Devil Tag in this case). Perhaps, instead of being a race, there should be a tag that you could enter "yes" or "no" to make a creature a shapechanger (and then list it in brackets after creature type, after any other applicable races).

I have brought up this issue on Template talk:5e Creature#Improving the template. Good eye that you spotted this! --Green Dragon (talk) 10:05, 17 May 2017 (UTC)

Monsters by Type[edit]

Perhaps this page should include the various 5e Monsters by type (such as 5e Aberration Monsters) that the 5e Monsters page has? SirSprinkles (talk) 02:33, 23 June 2019 (MDT)

Oh, I agree. In my opinion it would also make sense to make each of these lists (including the ones proposed and already here) as subpages, like 5e Races so that this loads quicker. Don't you agree? --Green Dragon (talk) 08:49, 24 June 2019 (MDT)

Swarm of Insects[edit]

Below, I have compiled a list of creatures that I believe could be compiled onto a single page of swarms of insects in a similar manner as 5e SRD:Swarm of Insects. They all fit the description, though with negligible ability score differences.

I don't want to rush into this, so let me know what you all think of this idea. -Ref3rence (talk) 15:06, 28 April 2020 (MDT)

You could put them on 5e Monsters Reimagined. SirSprinkles (talk) 20:12, 28 April 2020 (MDT)


I just created Incomplete 5e Creatures to match how 5e Races has Incomplete 5e Races. Could an admin add that page to this page? Thanks. --PJammaz (talk) 10:49, 11 May 2020 (MDT)

Done and done!Natsumi super fan (talk) 12:31, 11 May 2020 (MDT)
Cool! --PJammaz (talk) 13:02, 11 May 2020 (MDT)

Monsters For Shadow-Based Campaign[edit]

I'm looking for monsters that would be good for a campaign with the big bad guy being an overpowered shadow. I need some creatures for minions, some for allies to the players, and a big baddie for the last one. Any ideas? Flamestarter (talk) 19:44, 19 July 2020 (MDT)
