This is a list of all Monsters found in the game The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt. Read on for information on all Monsters' stats, dropped loot and items, weaknesses, difficulty level, and more.

List of Normal Monsters

Throughout the world of The Witcher 3, Geralt will encounter foes both monstrous in form, and those appearing as simple humans, who can often be found to be more monstrous by far.

Geralt carries two kinds of swords for handling each; a Silver sword for monsters, and a Steel sword for humans and humanoid (nonhuman) foes.

An easier way to determine which sword to use is to look at their health bar. A Red health bar requires a Steel Sword and a Silver health bar requires a Silver Sword.
