Creatures in Darkwood come in three types, aggressive, passive and peaceful. Every time the player dies, the enemies that were previously killed by the player respawn at a different location, except for the ones in unique Locations and on the Nightmare mode.

Aggressive Creatures[edit | edit source]

Aggressive creatures are hostile and will attack the player and sometimes other creatures on sight. They may also come to assail the player in the hideout at night. Many of these creatures have been afflicted with the Plague, making them extremely dangerous. Some of them are Carnivores.

Notes & Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • As of Alpha 7.0, some enemies have dynamic difficulty scaling in relation to the player's progress. Many other small rebalancings to creature stats have been added throughout game versions, most of them unspecified.
  • Other creatures besides the ones present in this list can be found on the game files. As their presence in the game is unconfirmed, to be added in future updates, or cut content, they are currently not being featured here.
