Hyena Monster DnD 5E

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on our 17th episode of our beast series. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at the Hyena monster 5e which is just hilarious…there’s funny animals i really like them. They found in the dungeon master’s guide which means everyone can really use them and they’re considerably cr0 which is really surprising.

I’m actually really blown away that wizards of the coast and go out of their way to put more teeth into these guys. I mean at least like a pack variant would be kind of cool but to the best of my knowledge there. Isn’t one at least none that i’ve been able to find. I was considered to be a cr0 and provides you 10 experience points. Should you defeat in combat. Let’s take a quick look at its stats here.


So the Hyena is considered to be a medium beast. So they’re actually quite large like above they occupy the same amount of space as you do and they’re considered to be unaligned. They have an AC of 11 and 5 hit points calculated by rolling a d8 and adding a modifier of 1. They have a roof over the impressive speed of 50 feet as well.

  • Type: Medium Beast, Unaligned
  • AC: 11
  • HP: 5 (1D8+1)
  • Speed: 50ft

Taking a look at their stats you notice they’re not really great. You know there are little bit of dexterity, little bit of constitution, little bit of wisdom but nothing else to speak off that being said.

  • STR: 11(+0)
  • DEX: 13(+1)
  • CON: 12(+1)
  • INT: 2(-4)
  • WIS: 12(+1)
  • CHA: 5(-3)

They do have a plus three to perception skills. Which is pretty great makes their passive perception 13 in senses and they also get pack tactics. Which lets it roll two attack rolls of with advantage. So why does a friendly creature of it is within 5 feet of that creature and is not incapacitated.


Pack Tactics: As per this pack tactics trait this hyena monster in dnd 5e has an advantage on an attack roll which is against to a creature if it is at least one of the hyena’s allies are within 5ft., of the particular creature and also the ally isn’t incapacitated.

Now let’s take a quick look at its actions here. So it has one action and that is a bite attack. That is considered to be a melee weapon attack plus 2 to hit. Reach a 5 feet can only effective one target and deals three piercing damage calculated by rolling 1d6. Very cool stuff like the hyena.


Bite: This monster can use its bite, by using this bite attack it can make a Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 3 (1d6) piercing damage.

Very cool stuff i think he’s meant to be used to more established kind of tone for example if you come across a hyena in a deserted area it’s safe to assume that the only way to really get by there is by scavenging or killing your player yourself i don’t know.

It’s really the only thing i can think of like building tension or perhaps even a late night raid highness being more nocturnal. That’d be pretty cool too.
