Quite a lot of our monsters have pretty boring names. We've made progress on this over time, but there's still a ways to go. This page is just to collect ideas for making names more interesting.

Boring monster names

<name>, but moreso

  • ancient lich
  • big kobold
  • giant cockroach
  • giant eyeball
  • giant frog
  • giant gecko
  • giant mite
  • giant newt
  • giant orange brain
  • greater mummy
  • greater naga

<color> <name>

  • blue devil
  • crimson imp
  • giant orange brain
  • golden eye
  • green death
  • green rat
  • orange demon
  • orange rat
  • red devil
  • red wasp
  • white imp
  • yellow wasp

Ideas

  • just remove 'giant' from a lot of the monsters who use it as a prefix
  • giant eyeball → lidless eye
  • red wasp → hornet

I've got a few ideas:

  • ancient lich → Lich Lord / Lich King
  • big kobold → Kobold Lord / kingbold
  • giant cockroach → uberoach
  • giant eyeball → sightling
  • giant frog → frog / megafrog / wartling
  • giant gecko → gecko / skink
  • giant mite → parasite
  • giant newt → newt / gecko (if you use skink for gecko)
  • giant orange brain → cerebron
  • greater mummy → pharoah
  • greater naga → Naga Hexmancer
