There are currently 61 monsters to play as in Crawl (excluding bosses and secret monsters). All monsters have a basic attack and a special ability. They are spawned when a ghost activates a pentagram on the ground. After activating one, the player is rapidly cycled through their available monsters before one is randomly selected. Ghosts are also able to activate monster statues (these tend to be secret / tier 4 monsters). At the beginning of the game, players are given a choice as to which Deity they will serve, which determines which monsters you will inhabit as a ghost. Each monster can be evolved using Wrath (previously known as Vitae, changed since v0.6 (Greater Spikewurm), which is gained when opposing Heroes level up.

The first evolution costs 10 wrath, the second costs 25 wrath, and the final evolution of any monster costs 40 wrath, for a total of 75 wrath. There are three exceptions to this, one evolution costing 35 wrath for the tier 1 Possessed Girl to become a tier 3 Dark Yurei, another costing 45 wrath for the tier 3 Abomination, Giant Spineworm, and Shadow Walker monsters to evolve in to the Bird Behemoth, and the third costing 60 wrath for the tier 1 Kevin to become the tier 4 Gargantuan Blobfish.

Once a monster has been used in a game, they will be unlocked in the Vault for practice.
