List of Creature Types
Below are the various creature types that can be found in Baldur's Gate 3.
Some creature types have special strengths or weaknesses, such as immunity to certain types of spells or vulnerability to certain types of damage.
Warped, alien beings that have come to Faerûn from beyond the multiverse.
All varieties of animals, both ordinary and magical. Most have limited intelligence and lack a society and language.
Creatures that are made instead of born. Some only follow a simple set of instructions, while others are imbued with sentience.
Immensely intelligent, ancient, and powerful magical creatures that covet wealth. Chromatic dragons are selfish, evil, and feared, while Metallic dragons are noble, good, and respected by the wise.
Creatures native to the Elemental Planes. They range from simple masses of a specific element to beings infused with elemental energy.
Fey are magical creatures closely tied to the forces of nature. They dwell in twilight groves and misty forests.
Evil, wicked creatures from the Lower Planes that labour under the leadership of lawful archdevils or chaotic demon princes.
Giants tower over humans and their kind. They are humanlike in shape, though some have multiple heads or deformities.
Humanoids are the main peoples of a fantasy gaming world, both civilized and savage, including humans and a tremendous variety of other species.
Frightening creatures that are not ordinary, not truly natural, and almost never benign.
These gelatinous creatures usually dwell in caves and dungeons, feed on refuse, carrion, and ill-fated adventurers.
Plants in this context are vegetable creatures, not ordinary flora. Most of them are ambulatory, and some are carnivorous.
The remains of the dead, animated by dark magic - be they summoned by spellcasters, or risen on their own.
