Throughout the The Witcher series, various monsters are sometimes mentioned only in passing and thus, without any other viable information to go on. This page is to help list them.
In The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, Amarok is named by Ciri as a possible monster Geralt could get a contract on if he moves to Kovir with Triss. While this insinuates they live in that kingdom, it's not clear if they can live in other areas of the continent.
- In Inuit religion, the amarok is an enormous wolf who haunts its preys alone at night.
- In Pliny the Elder's bestiary, the leucrotta is the crossbreed between a crocotta (a hyena) and a lion. The leucrotta is a fearsome predator that is able to mimic a man's voice and lure people into a trap to devour them.
- The lutin is nocturnal house-holding spirit in French folklore, similar to a gnome.
- The pùca is a shapeshifting fairy of Celtic folklore.
The puffbow is a creature mentioned by Geralt in The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt's secondary quest Novigrad, Closed City (Lussi, Fritz, Walter). Not much of this monster is known, except that it can haunts empty houses like wights.
- In Russian folklore, the shishigas, or leshenka, are female forest spirits that harass and bring bad luck to those who travel in their dominion.
