Badger 5E DnD Monster

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the third episode of our beast series. Today we’re gonna be taking a look at the cute little badger monster 5e man i love these guys, i just think they’re amazing. Badgers in real life for the bomb dot com.

Some of them are very pretty vicious but whatever. They’re considered to be a cr0 creatures that is to say they have no real difficulty associated with them, they’re kind of just background creatures. So if you defeat when you get 10 xp and this one is from the good old dungeon master’s guide. Now without further ado , let’s take a quick look at its stats here and break it down a little bit.

Badger Monster 5E Stats

  • Type: Tiny beast, unaligned

So the badger is considered to be a tiny beast that is to say he’s essentially the smallest size out there. Clocking in at about a two and a half by two and two and a half feet at least in terms of the space it occupies.

  • Armor Class: 10
  • Hit Points: 3 (1d4 + 1)
  • Speed: 20 ft., burrow 5 ft.

This cute little guys also has an AC of10, three hit points determined by rolling a d4 and adding one and the speed is rather interesting so 20 feet of movement but it can burrow 5 feet. Which is very cool stuff. This is the first creature of cover that can burrow and that’s very important. I’ll get to why that is. Now looking at its stats here.

Badger 5E Beast Stat Block

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

You’ll notice a relatively good constitution and wisdom as well. However everything else seems to fall short. Dexterity isn’t terrible but it’s also not particularly something to wrtite home about. Now looking at their sense. Also read cave badger 5e.


  • Darkvision 30 ft., Passive Perception 11
  • Languages
  • Challenge 0 (10 XP)

You have 30 feet darkvision which is great. I’m surprised they don’t have any blind sense usually things that can burrow have blind sense but this guy does not have. It has a passive perception of 11.

Keen Smell: The badger has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on smell.

It also has access to keen smell which gives them advantage on perception checks that rely on smell. Very cool stuff, super useful. Maybe that’s a way you can get around blind sense but that kind of depends on the DM. Now let’s take a look at his actions here. Also read honey badger 5e.


Bite: Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 1 piercing damage.

He’s only got one action, it’s a melee weapon attack. +2 to hit, range of five feet, one target and deals 1 point of piercing damage.

The badger 5e beast stats rather interesting cuz this is the first one we’ve covered that doesn’t have a dice roll associated with its damage just literally says one piercing damage which is interesting. So i think probably the coolest way to use these would be just to surround a party. I think that’d be hilarious. You can also check out this dire badger 5e.

A party’s taking a nap, this is really good for like early level adventurers if you have like a druid that’s gonna be causing them a hard time, have like a bunch of badgers just pop out of the ground and just try and try and bite them you know. Like is it gonna kill them, you know hopefully not like they don’t really got a lot of meat to them.

But action economy is a thing so maybe i just think that’d be hilarious you’re taking a nap and then next thing you know you’re like a boom boom boom boom boom boom and then you look around you’re surrounded by these little tiny kind of rodents i guess, it’d be kind of funny.
