Bats are small, very social flying mammals. They may frequent caves or haunted houses.
Beetles are among the most widespread groups of insects in the world, with the largest number of known species. They have played various roles in human culture, and have been regarded as pests, beneficial organisms and sacred beings.
Dragons were originally messengers from heaven, according to early Buddhist texts. In games, they can be among the most fearsome of adversaries, but there are some exceptions.
Carefully exploring a large, labyrinthine area full of enemies (i.e., a dungeon) in the hopes of finding treasure, leveling up, or completing a specific task. Having their roots in tabletop games, video game dungeon crawls are found almost exclusively in RPGs.
Supernatural beings that are created from and serve their respective elements.
Foraging is the ability to effectively gather food and drink from ones surroundings. Rangers, druids, and elves often excel in this skill.
Gnomes are a race of mythological creatures, which are usually much smaller versions of humans.
A portal is a hole in reality connected to another hole in reality, whether magical or scientific in nature, that allows a person to instantly travel incredibly vast distances simply by walking through one.
The act of taking on an in-game task; most often, these are provided to the player by an NPC. MMOs and RPGs are the primary users of this concept.
Random Loot is a popular concept for dungeon crawler and MMO style games. In essence, monsters or objects drop something that is considered valuable to the player with random qualities.
Bipedal rat-like creatures, common in fantasy games. Prone to trickery and backstabbing, unless they're ninja.
The foil of almost every early RPG lover, these rodents often live in sewers. While most rats are simple targets, games like Ratatouille make them the hero.
Two or more factions, either with the same or completely different goals, that constantly try to one-up each other. The player is sometimes forced to pick a side to root or work for during the struggle. Other times the rivalry is only mentioned in the plot.
A blob consisting of some icky substance, the slime monster is one of the most used RPG monster clichés besides rats.
Arguably the most fearsome of all the reptiles - it has scales and no legs. Snakes use a variety of tactics to harm players such as poison, hypnosis, and constriction. The most deadly snakes have mastered the way of stealth.
An eight legged arachnid. Some make webs to catch prey and some are poisonous. None have made a web grand enough to be called a parlor, though.
A mechanical system designed to capture or cause harm. Either the player can set traps for their enemies or others set them for the player.
