Creatures theme

Includes any kind of creatures with terrifying or otherwise horribly deformed/repulsive (monstrous) appearance, regardless if their personality matches this. Commonly assumed to be mindless savages.


The first video game about Monsters was released in 1974.

Electronic Arts, Konami and Sega has published most of these games

This is for creatures that physically resemble something that could be labeled as monster, not people whose personality is monstrous.

Gamers and game makers tend to label anything that opposes the player as monsters but this tag is NOT for such broad definition of it.

Child groups

Giant monsters, Monster protagonist, Abominations, Monster girls
