Neutral monsters

Creatures theme

Player encounters creatures ("enemies") that one would normally expect to attack the player character outright, but these do not. Instead, they might even talk to you and leave you alone.


Alternate name: Friendly monsters

The first video game about Neutral monsters was released on October 1991.

Interplay, Deep Silver and Bethesda Softworks has published most of these games

Despite the name, this tag is not limited to characters/creatures that are monstrous in appearance or mentality. Anything that fits the assumption that they must be hostile towards you are eligible.

This does not include temporary neutrality nor neutrality that you can't avoid disrupting.

Player may "accidentally" attack and kill these due to appearing like regular opponents from a distance.
