Vulture DnD 5E Monster

Hello zoologists of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my spellbook and thank you so much for checking out the 31st episode of our beast series. Today we’re taking a look at the vulture 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 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 cro 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.

Vulture DnD 5E Stat Block

  • Type: Medium beast, unaligned
  • Armor Class: 10
  • Hit Points: 5 (1d8 + 1)
  • Speed: 10 ft., fly 50 ft.

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 plus 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. Now let’s take a look at its actual stats here. Don’t miss this giant eagle 5e.

Has a +3 to perception for its skills which make 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. You can also read this giant vulture 5e.

Other Traits

  • Keen Sight and Smell: The vulture has advantage on Wisdom (Perception) checks that rely on sight or smell. Which is pretty much all of them.
  • Pack Tactics: The vulture has advantage on an attack roll against a creature if at least one of the vulture’s allies is within 5 feet of the creature and the ally isn’t incapacitated. Which is very cool stuff! it’s arguably one of the best traits to have on a beast but let’s quickly check out its actions here. Don’t miss this death vulture 5e.


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

The vulture only has one action and that is its beak attack and it is considered to be a melee weapon attack, +2 to hit, reach of five feet, it can only target one target and deals two or 1d4 piercing damage on a hit.

Very cool stuff! i love the vultures they’re kind of scavengers, 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 might 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 to expect. Finally you can just use them to dispose of corpses and feed your familiar.


That being said, let me know how you would use them down beneath in the comment section i really do appreciate it. Also be sure to mention if you any thoughts, questions, comments or concerns i love hearing from you guys about this black vulture dnd 5e. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy researching. Also read dire wolf 5e | hawk 5e.
