Comparing Ability Score Totals

edited December 2018 in Off-Topic

Did you know that in Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, the average orc has a higher stat total than an iron golem? Did you know that a couatl, a challenge rating 4 creature, has an ability score total 13 points higher than that of a tarrasque? You will find a lot of things you didn't expect when comparing 5th edition monster stat totals.

In the Spoiler section below is a list of most monsters from the 5E Monster Manual, Volo's Guide to Monsters, and Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes with the sum of their Strength, Dexterity, Constitution, Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma scores. I hope you find it interesting!

It doesn't include the creatures used as an example of a template (for example, Quaggoth Spore Servant or Adult Blue Dracolich).

    I updated the list with all the monsters from Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes, which I got for Christmas!

    It's kind of hard to look at creatures as it seems to have no particular order. Alphabetic, for example...

    They're ordered based on stat total. But I could make a separate list that sorts them alphabetically.

    I see ol Orcus & his rival Demogorgon tied. I was thinking Orcus would have been just a hair higher with all he's been through over the years (or maybe he was). That's got me kinda curious as to how the BG creatures stack up now using that method. B)

    @Zaghoul Here's a list of stat totals for creatures in Baldur's Gate 1, including companions, bosses, and many other characters. It's very incomplete and leaves out a lot of monsters, but this was because most monsters in Baldur's Gate 1 weren't given fleshed-out stats (most of them were given 9 in most of their stats because those stats didn't matter for combat). I decided that I would not include a creature if at least 3 of their stats were 9s. Minor characters, on the other hand, do tend to have real stats.

    Here's the list:

    @OlvynChuru Nice one, thanks. Loup Garou's are pretty tough, especially with the wrong weapons to go up against them with. :)
