This is intended to be a comprehensive list of creatures that have appeared in various Dungeons & Dragons works. Each individual list covers a span of years by edition of the game, with monsters being listed chronologically by book in which they appeared.

Although efforts have been made to include all creatures, there are likely to be omissions and other errors. At any particular time, there will be variations in the level of brief detail, and there are some duplications, not all of which are errors as there are some name duplications amongst the creatures.

Original Dungeons & Dragons[edit | edit source]

The original edition of Dungeons & Dragons consisted of a boxed set by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson printed in 1974, and several pamphlet-sized supplements printed through 1976. The volume "Monsters & Treasure" in the original set, and the supplements (Greyhawk, Blackmoor and Eldritch Wizardry) included a section of monsters.

TSR 2002 – Dungeons & Dragons Box Set (1974)[edit | edit source]

The 1974 Dungeons & Dragons boxed set by Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson contained three booklets, including a list of monsters in the booklet "Monsters & Treasure". This booklet contained an index on pages 3–4 featuring statistics about how many creatures of each type of creature appeared per encounter, armor class, how many inches the creature could move on its turn, hit dice, % in lair, and treasure. Pages 5–20 followed with descriptions of each of the monsters, typically consisting of one or more paragraphs. Most of the monsters on this book did not feature an illustration. Also featured are descriptions of humans (bandits, brigands, berserkers, dervishes, nomads, buccaneers, cavemen, and mermen), horses, insects, and other small and large animals.

Basic Dungeons & Dragons[edit | edit source]

This edition of Dungeons & Dragons began in 1981, as a revision of the introductory Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set established it as a separate version of the game that ran concurrently with both 1st edition and 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons until the line was ended in 1994. The Basic Rulebook collected many of the monsters from the previous D&D supplements, and the subsequent Basic Set, Expert Set, Companion Set, Master Set, and Immortals Set all added more new monsters to the game. The Creature Catalogue expanded on these sets even further, collecting monsters that had appeared in basic D&D modules and adding new monsters as well.

1977 version[edit | edit source]

Dungeons & Dragons Basic Rulebook (1977)[edit | edit source]

The Dungeons & Dragons Basic Set, edited by John Eric Holmes, was first released in 1977, as an introductory set for new players. While players were intended to go onto Advanced Dungeons & Dragons once the play options in the Basic Set were exhausted, as stated in the book, many players found they preferred the simpler play style of the basic game. The Basic Set was based upon the original work published in 1974 and three of the supplementary booklets to the original set. Much like the first edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual, also released in 1977, this book collected many of the monsters from the previous D&D supplements, and included the stat lines on the same page as the monsters' descriptions. The monster descriptions are found on pages 22–33 of the book. Most descriptions do not feature illustrations.

Dungeons & Dragons Basic Rulebook (1981)[edit | edit source]

The second version of the D&D Basic Set, edited by Tom Moldvay, was first printed in 1981, and is generally known as the "red book".This revision solidified the split between the "Basic" and "Advanced" lines of the game.

TSR 9044 – D&D Basic Module B3 Palace of the Silver Princess (1981)[edit | edit source]

The Palace of the Silver Princess was the only D&D module ever published by TSR to be recalled immediately after distribution, ostensibly for editorial issues and questionable artwork. Two versions of the module exist: the extremely rare orange-cover original printing (available for download as a PDF from Wizards of the Coast), and the more common green-cover revised edition.[1] The original version added 13 new creatures; two of these survived in the revised edition, but the majority were removed. The original version of the module was issued as Template:ISBN. (Page numbers provided below are from the Wizards of the Coast PDF download; page numbers in parentheses refer to the revised edition.) The updated green-cover version of the module contained only 3 new creatures, and was issued with the same ISBN.[2]

TSR 1071 – Rules Cyclopedia (1991)[edit | edit source]

The Dungeons & Dragons Rules Cyclopedia was published in 1991. It was intended as an encyclopedia of all the major rules for the basic Dungeons & Dragons game up to that point, including most of the information appearing in the previous boxed set. Chapter 14 of the book, pages 152–218, presents most of the monsters used in the basic D&D game once again. Several pages of that chapter describe how to use the statistics, as well as providing suggestions on how to use the monsters. The actual monster descriptions are found on pages 156–213 of the book.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st edition[edit | edit source]

Introduced in 1977, the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game built upon the original edition of D&D. This edition also introduced the concept of a Monster Manual, a separate book to deal with just monsters. The original Monster Manual collected the monsters from the original D&D books, and other sources, and expanded on the monster format. The original Fiend Folio and Monster Manual II were also printed during the run of AD&D 1st edition, and numerous monsters appeared in other modules and game supplements at the time.

This list only includes monsters from official Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 1st Edition supplements published by TSR, Inc. or Wizards of the Coast, not licensed or unlicensed third party products such as video games or unlicensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons manuals.

TSR 2009 – Monster Manual (1977)[edit | edit source]

This was the initial monster book for the first edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game, published in 1977. Gary Gygax wrote much of the work himself, having included and expanded most of the monsters from the previous D&D supplements. Also included are monsters originally printed in The Strategic Review, as well as some originally found in early issues of The Dragon (such as the anhkheg and remorhaz), and other early game materials. This book also expanded on the original monster format, such as including the stat lines on the same page as the monsters' descriptions and introducing more stats, expanding the length of most monster descriptions, and featuring illustrations for most of the monsters. The book features an alphabetical table of contents of all the monsters on pages 3–4, explanatory notes for the statistics lines on pages 5–6, descriptions of the monsters on pages 6–103, a treasure chart on page 105, and an index of major listings on pages 106–109.

TSR 2012 - Fiend Folio (1981) TSR 2012 – Fiend Folio (1981)[edit | edit source]

The Fiend Folio: Tome of Creatures Malevolent and Benign was the second monster book for the first edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, published in 1981. While the Monster Manual consisted primarily of monsters previously published in D&D books edited by Gary Gygax, the Fiend Folio consisted mostly of monsters submitted to White Dwarf's "Fiend Factory" column. Don Turnbull, later Managing Director of TSR UK, was the editor for the "Fiend Factory" column, as well as the Fiend Folio, which was billed as "the first major British contribution to the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game system." The monsters in this book are presented in the same format as those in the previous Monster Manual work, and most featured illustrations of the monsters. Also, there are full-page black and white illustrations of various monsters throughout the book. The book contains a foreword on pages 3–4, an alphabetical table of contents on page 5, explanatory notes on pages 6–7, descriptions of the monsters on pages 8–97, a treasure chart on page 99, additional tables and charts for all the monsters in both the Monster Manual and Fiend Folio on pages 100–119, an index of major listings (including the contributor for each monster) on pages 120–124, with an epilogue on page 124.

TSR 2016 - Monster Manual II (1983) TSR 2016 – Monster Manual II (1983)[edit | edit source]

Monster Manual II was the third and final monster book for the first edition of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, published in 1983, and has the largest page count of the three. As with the Monster Manual, this book was written primarily by Gary Gygax. While this book contains a number of monsters that previously appeared in limited circulation (such as in Dragon or in adventure modules), unlike the Monster Manual and Fiend Folio a large amount of its contents was entirely new at publication. The monsters in this book are presented in the same format as the Monster Manual and Fiend Folio. The book contains a preface on page 4, a section entitled "How To Use This Book" on pages 5–7, descriptions of the monsters on pages 8–132, random encounter tables on pages 133–155, and an index of all the monsters in the Monster Manual, Fiend Folio, and Monster Manual II on pages 156–160. Unlike the previous two books, this book does not contain an alphabetical listing of the monsters in the beginning of the book.

Monster Cards[edit | edit source]

Four sets of "monster cards" were released in 1982; each card contained the stats and description of a single monster. They were mostly reprints from the Monster Manual, but three monsters in each set were original, and were reprinted in the Monster Manual II the next year.

Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition[edit | edit source]

Main article: List of Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd edition monsters

Initially, the 2nd edition of AD&D replaced the idea of a hardbound Monster Manual with a loose-leaf Monstrous Compendium series that eventually numbered 14 volumes. These volumes greatly expanded the detail level on the previous edition's monsters, and returned most of the 1st edition monsters to the game. Due to popular demand (as the format was considered too fragile and unwieldy), the Monstrous Compendium series eventually ended and was replaced with the 384-page Monstrous Manual in 1993, which reprinted many of the creatures previously featured in the Monstrous Compendium series. This book was followed up by four Monstrous Compendium Annuals in the following years, and many new monsters were introduced in game modules and supplements throughout 2nd edition.

This list only includes monsters from official Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition supplements published by TSR, Inc. or Wizards of the Coast, not licensed or unlicensed third party products such as video games or unlicensed Advanced Dungeons & Dragons 2nd Edition manuals.

Monsters in the 2nd edition Advanced Dungeons & Dragons[edit | edit source]

The second edition of the Dungeons & Dragons game featured both a higher number of books of monsters[3] and more extensive monster descriptions than earlier[4] and later editions, with usually one page in length.[5][6][7][8][9] Next to a description, monster entries in this edition contained standardized sections covering combat, their habit and society, and their role in the eco-system.[5][6]

2nd edition also used a unique format in the form of Monstrous Compendiums of loose sheets that could be collected in a folder, and allowed the combination of monster books together with individual monster pages from boxed sets.[5][9][4] This format was abandoned again in 1993 in favor of bound books.[6][10] In parallel with this change, 2nd edition introduced colored images for each monster, which became standard in later editions of the game.[6][8][11]

Monsters created for the 2nd edition were based on mythologies of various cultures, fantasy literature, and original inventions.[4] They were often updated from earlier editions. 2nd edition also introduced a great number of new creatures.[6][7]

Some types, such as devils and demons, were initially removed by TSR in response to a moral panic promoted by Patricia Pulling's advocacy group Bothered About Dungeons and Dragons (BADD).[12][13][14] These were later reintroduced, sometimes with different names, to avoid complaints.[15]

TSR 2102 – MC1 – Monstrous Compendium Volume One (1989) – Template:ISBN
This was the initial volume in the Monstrous Compendium series, for the second edition of the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons game, published in 1989. Most of the monsters for Volume One were taken from previous first edition AD&D books; the monster entries were greatly expanded and in most cases each monster now filled an entire page and had an all-new illustration. The Monstrous Compendium series consisted of a pack of 5-hole punched loose-leaf pages rather than an actual book, designed to be arranged to the player's preference. Volume One of the Monstrous Compendium was packaged in a box, which contained the pack of monster sheets as well as a binder intended to store the sheets for Volumes One, Two, and Three. The pack consisted of 144 pages, unnumbered, and included a "How To Use This Book" page, with an alphabetical index to Volume One on the back, four pages of monster summoning and random encounter charts, and a blank monster sheet to be photocopied, with the remainder consisting of the monster descriptions. Also included were eight full-page illustrations on heavier card stock.
  • Note: All monsters from MC1 appeared in the Monstrous Manual (1993), though some had slightly altered headings.

TSR 2140 – Monstrous Manual (1993) – Template:ISBN
The Monstrous Manual was printed after the completion of the loose-leaf Monstrous Compendium series, in 1993. This book was "created in response to the many requests to gather monsters into a single, durable volume which would be convenient to carry." The Monstrous Manual compiled all of the monsters from Monstrous Compendium Volumes One and Two, as well as many creatures from subsequent volumes, and revised and updated the entries; however, some entries were condensed from previous Monstrous Compendium entries. The book is 384 pages.
