Monsters are hostile Mobs that will attack the player on sight (with a few exceptions), with no warning. They tend to drop useful Items, which means that despite their danger, they must eventually be sought out. Many Monsters have variants with different abilities and stronger attacking capability, such as the spider and the higher ranked spider warrior.

Some monsters vary depending on the season the player is currently in. For more information, check SummerAutumnWinter and Spring.

There are also several rare Boss Monsters. Most of these creatures will drain Sanity when they are nearby. Most monsters often drop Monster Meat when killed.

Some mobs are easier to kill and requires minimal planning/preparation. A Spider, for example, is easy to kill when ever you find one, but a Tentacle requires much more preparation.

Monsters do not regenerate health over time, so you can for example strategize to attack Boss Monsters with intervals to stop and regenerate health for your own, muster allies to swarm it, eat or recover sanity, etc.

It is unclear if Mobs eventually despawn. Experiences detail that they do not, so, for example, if you flee from a hound attack and come back, they will still be there unless they wandered off to attack other creatures. The Deerclops, on the other hand, will disappear when Winter ends, without any trail or Items left behind.
