    Default Weirdly cute dnd monsters

    Does anyone else have this thing where they find a monster from the monster manual just too cute to try and murder? For me itís mimics. I donít know why but I always feel bad for the guys. Theyíre just sitting around being a chest and some silly group of adventurers try to pull itís mouth open. Maybe itís just me.

    "Kobolds are the only race capable of winning a fight solely through determination, their own sense of self-importance, and adorable pluck."

    I didn't think kobolds could get any cuter than Deekin had already shown them to be, but 5e proved me wrong! They have PUPPY DOG NOSES NOW!!!

    I made a batch of game tokens the other week, and a handful of them were kobolds... only I don't want to throw them at my players as their first instinct is to murderhobo anything that ins't behind a shop counter...

    For me it's Cockatrice. I'm new to d&d in general and every type of media I had seen before this depicted them as extremely large and then I play some 5e and learn their the size of a chicken. It's an adorable lizard chicken that is high strung like a chihuahua and I can't help but love them. If they were a beast I would definitely make a druid or ranger who's sole purpose was to befriend and run a cockatrice sanctuary.

    You could put them behind a shop counter.

    Rust Monster.

    Though fighters and paladins disagree.

    It's not THE RUST MONSTER'S fault the paladins and fighters decided to tromp around relying on a skin made of food to keep them safe!

    Modrons, at least in the monodrone-quadrone range. This illustration from the DMG really doesn't help.



    If you are ready to butcher those, you are probably a Despicable Me hater.

    Well, luring adventurers into its mouth is the whole point.

    This is so true, and I refuse to believe that metallic dragons never adopt a tribe of kobolds.

    I've always had a place in my heart for displacer beasts, back to BECMI
    Also http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0210.html didn't help

    From ToA: Grigs are just adorable! Of course, so are the Goblins in stacks.

    I've never seen Despicable Me, but I agree with you on the modrons! Nordom is one of the best characters in Planescape: Torment!
    "Reach down into your heart and you'll find many reasons to fight. Survival. Honor. Glory. But what about those who feel it's their duty to protect the innocent? There you'll find a warrior savage enough to match any dragon, and in the end, they'll retain what the others won't. Their humanity."
