All the creature types in Valheim can be sorted into categories. Yet, even then some overlap, and given the newness of the game it would not be surprising if that were to change.

The two most obvious categories for creatures in Valheim would be passive and aggressive. From your everyday creatures while you forage and build, to the ones where you either need to run screaming from or stand and fight.

What are All the Creature Types in Valheim

Looking at passive and aggressive creatures, its pretty obvious which ones are more of a threat. But, if you don't know them very well then we've got it all laid out here for you:


These are more of your everyday creatures. They don't attack players (so far) so no need to worry if you bump into one.

  • Deer
  • Crow
  • Gull
  • Fish
  • Leviathan
  • Odin


So these are the creatures that will definitely attack players. Depending on their star rating they can also deal different amounts of damage. For a one-star rating, the creature can deal 150% damage to a player, and it has double the health. For a two-star rating, it's double the damage, and triple the health. So, steer clear unless you think you are ready to go toe-to-toe with these creatures:

  • Boar
  • Neck
  • Greyling
  • Troll
  • Greydwarf
  • Greydwarf Shaman
  • Greydwarf Elite
  • Ghost
  • Skeleton
  • Blob
  • Oozer
  • Rancid Remains
  • Draugr
  • Draugr Elite
  • Leech
  • Surtling
  • Wraith
  • Drake
  • Stone Golem
  • Fenring
  • Lox
  • Deathsquito
  • Goblin
