As a 4e player, I find the 5th edition stat blocks a major step backwards. The idea of having to comb through multiple spell descriptions in the PHB while trying to run an NPC is unappetizing to say the least. I preferred the self-sufficient stat blocks of 4e. I know there’s a lot of hate for 4e out there, but even the most hateful edition warriors might be able to appreciate one-stop stat blocks. Well, here they are. I’ve gone through the 5e Monster Manual and expanded the stat blocks so that you need nothing more than the stat block to run the creature.
Well, that’s not 100% true. If you want your NPC to shove another creature, then you’ll still have to look up the rules on shoving. However, those rules are the same for all creatures, easy to memorize, and in some cases not used very often, so they’re best left for ad hoc reference to the PHB.
Here are some notes:
- In most cases, the basic idea is to expand the spell-like abilities, providing a full description for each. This could get insanely long, so I used some shorthand. A min/maxer would be able to manipulate this language to his or her advantage, but you’re the DM. I doubt that’s your goal.
- In addition to making the stat blocks self-contained, I also tried to make the monsters more interesting. In quite a few cases, the stat blocks follow a specific, boring pattern: “Multiattack, Bite, Claw, Claw” or “Multiattack, Melee weapon.” The giants, for example, are remarkably similar. The only difference between the hill, fire, frost, and stone giants are reach and resistance. So, even for a CR 2 NPC like the Azer, it made sense to give it Innate Spellcasting. This gave it an underpowered ranged attack, making the Azer more interesting without making it overpowered.
- I’ve noticed that the player power curve beings to distance itself from the NPC power curve by 5th or 6th level. This isn’t surprising in light of the fact that the table on page 274 of the Dungeon Master’s Guide, Monster Statistics by Challenge Rating, requires higher damage expressions for many higher-level monsters than what appears in the Monster Manual. My stat blocks reflect what’s in the Dungeon Master’s Guide, so expect tougher monsters. Note: I did not increase monster AC or hit points, because I didn’t want NPCs that would create seemingly interminable encounters.
- Legendary creatures are, across the board, interesting and well-stated out. I haven’t made any changes to the statistics of legendary creatures.
- The couatl is an example of a stat block that requires some discussion. Despite not being a legendary creature, when I converted the stat block to my format, it was over a page long (9-point font, 1/2” margins). There are some that are even bigger. This can be seen as a failure of monster design (i.e., it’s too complicated to expect a DM ever to use it as written) or a success of monster type. By the latter I mean that the full stat block should be seen as a starting point. You can delete spell-like abilities that you’re never going to use, leaving a smaller, more manageable, and more practical stat block. When you’ve deleted certain spell-like abilities, what’s left could be a couatl that focuses on healing, focuses on damage, or is best suited for a role-playing challenge. Or not. If you want to run it as written, go for it. I’m not barking out orders; I’m just providing some options.
- The further I went into the Monster Manual, the bigger the stat blocks became. High-level casters have a lot of spells.
- I added a suggestion for using a slaad in an otherwise boring encounter. I’ve had some fun with it and hope you do as well.
- For the final version, I’ve made several changes. Mostly they were pagination choices, but I had to fix my screwed up dryad (forgot some spells), and I had to correct all of the spell descriptions for Suggestion (adding the save). If you find any errors, please let me know.
- There’s a discussion about these stat blocks on ENWorld here. I’m making several changes based on the feedback I receive there. If you want the latest, greatest document, bookmark that discussion or this page.
And so, here is the complete set of one-stop stat blocks for 5e:

Woah! Thank you for all the work! This is awesome, it must have taken a while.
Months (because I have a job). 🙂
Thank you for this! I look forward to trying it out.
Very minor nit: In the NPC: Archmage and Mage stat block, the parenthetical after fire bolt is “at will” while all other cantrips are listed as “cantrip”
No nitpick is too small. Thanks.
This is already coming in very handy! I found a small error on page 93 (the nycaloth): under the Mirror Image spell, it looks like you forgot to replace a couple of instances of “lamia” with “yugoloth.”
Thanks for this resource!
Thanks for catching it. I’ll correct it tonight.
Thanks! There’s still one instance of “lamia” in version 14, though: “Three illusory duplicates of the yugoloth appear, moving with the lamia.”
Again, I love the resource; I’m only coming back because you said above that no nitpick was too small!
I’m a dope. I’ll fix it.
… and fixed!
This is one of the best things I’ve downloaded for running DnD5e, I have no idea why WOTC aren’t using this format.
Because they want to sell you spell cards, and because they don’t want to have to publish two monster manuals instead of just one.
I found another error in the Dao statblock. The text is the same for “Elemental Demise” and “Sure-footed.”
Thanks. I’ll correct it this weekend.
Done. Thanks again. (Took me long enough, huh?) 🙂
Yay! I’ll download the revised version right away.
So helpful, thank you. Is there a list somewhere of your modifications? Would love to use this in Adventurer’s League.
Modifications are contained in the appendix within the document.
A slightly different approach to the same end. I prepare index cards with stat blocks for all expected (and random) encounters per session. Mostly, it is a cut and paste from the SRD, but I also add in spell descriptions, similar to Frylock. The short spell format is slightly different than Frylocks (and I treat cantrips different than spells since cantrips don’t have to be tracked). Every time I create a spell, I put it in a list so I won’t have recreate later. Below is my current list of short-format spells (note that some of these spells are custom/houseruled spells; I’ve marked them with an asterisk):

This issue came up over the weekend. While I was working on this project, I was given a document that provided shorthand for the spells, and it would shorten them even more than what you did above (which isn’t really much different from what I did). I chose not to use the format despite how helpful it would be in reducing the size of my 2-1/2 page stat blocks. To maximize the number of people that might find these useful, I didn’t want to create too much change too quickly. Moreover, there’s no accepted standard for the abbreviations used. If someone created abbreviations, and I saw that particular format catch on, then I’d consider a rewrite.
RTFM, gosh! Thanks again!
Just found this and flipping through to see what its about. Checked0d out giants in anticipation of Sept and noticed that the Fire Giant section for Burning Hands duplicates the Cone of Cold text from the Frost Giant.
Cool product though – very handy. I’ve been printing off a spellbook for evey monster or NPC that needed one. This will save a LOT of prep work.
BTW, if you’re getting ready for the giants, you’ll probably like my current project. It’s weeks from publication, but you might like it. Stay tuned.
This is awesome. Just a note: in the current version Mind Flayers (generic and Arcanist) are both listed as Small Elementals, neutral evil. I think it’s a holdover from the Mephit blocks just before the flayers. They should be Medium Aberrations, lawful evil. But nitpicking aside, this is an awesome tool and one I am totally going to use. Thanks for all your hard work.
C’mon! Don’t apologize for helping me out. I’m appreciative of everyone’s nitpicking. I’ll make the changes this week.
Seems that you just copied the cult fanatic’s actions onto the Druid’s instead of the correct ones. Just saw that, not a big deal, thanks for making this.
Yeah, that’s how I make most of these; copy and paste. Looks like I missed another one. I’ll get to it by the weekend (unless I forget). 🙂

This is amazing!! I’m a new DM, and I get the feeling using this list is going to save me a lot of running back and forth between books 😛 Thank you so much for making this–it’s defs going to come in handy.

You forgot the gibbering mouther! I know because that’s what I was looking for!
Always the way 😉
