This article is about an older version of DF.

In Dwarf Fortress, creatures are defined as pretty much anything that is alive. They come in all shapes and sizes, and range from the civilized races like dwarves to dread terrors like giant cave spiders to vermin. Various creatures will interact with your fortress in different ways. Some can be used as food source, others are neighbors, some will even trade with you, but some only want to suck the sweet marrow from your bones or make tunics of dwarf leather.

[edit] Semi-megabeasts

Semi-megabeasts are the cyclops, ettin, giant, and minotaur. These large, dangerous beasts can be the targets of quests in adventurer mode.
