Vulture DnD 5E Monster

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for clicked on to our 31st episode of our beast series. Today we’re taking a look at dnd 5e vulture monster arguably one of the most thematically appealing beasts we’ve covered so far. As so far as to say the party knows it’s in trouble when there’s a ring of vultures circling them.

I just think they’re cool, they’re actually quite large birds and i’m actually happy that wizards recognize that and we’ll talk about that in a little bit. The vulture is found in the basic rules which means that it’s found kind of all the basic books and it’s considered to be cr0 which means that’s not meant to be a real threat. That being said let’s quickly check out its stats here and break it down a little bit.


So the vulture is thankfully considered to be a medium beast that is unaligned. I was kind of worried they were gonna make it small but they made a medium which is good. Good on your wizards really appreciate it. AC of 10 which kind of puts it in line with the average. 5 hit points this actually puts it above the average clocking in at 1d8+1 very nice stuff. Speed of 10 feet but a fly speed of 50 feet as with most of the avian beasts we’ve covered so far.

  • Type: Medium Beast, Unaligned
  • AC: 10
  • HP: 5(1D8+1)
  • Speed: 10ft, fly 50ft

Taking a look at its stats you’ll notice not a lot to brag about. It does decent constitution, decent wisdom but that’s literally it.

  • STR: 7(-2)
  • DEX: 10(+0)
  • CON: 13(+1)
  • INT: 2(-4)
  • WIS: 12(+1)
  • CHA: 4(-3)

Has a plus 3 to perception for skills which make i have a passive perception of 13. But that’s not all, it’s got some other traits as well. Let’s quickly check those out.


It has access to the keen sight and smell and it also gain access to the pack tactics. Which is very cool stuff. It’s arguably one of the best traits to have one a beast.

Keen Sight and Smell: As per this trait the vulture monster has an advantage on the wisdom (perception) checks which is rely on sight or else smell.

Pack Tactics: This vulture monster has advantage on the attack roll which is against to a creature if it is at least one of the vulture’s allies is within 5ft., of a creature and also the ally is not Incapacitated.

Let’s quickly check out it’s actions here. The vulture only has one action and that is its beak attack considered to be a melee weapon attack.


Beak: Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 2 (1d4) piercing damage.

Very cool stuff… I love the vulture they’re kind of scavenger’s i’d use them and way is to establish kind of tone for example they’re quite ominous, they’re kind of ever-present angles of death as it were. So them looming around an area signify that there’s not gonna be a whole lot to eat. It’s gonna be a survival based area. So that’s how i would use them, just as an indicator for the party to know what to expect.
