Herbivores (Japanese 草食種) are weak monsters that eat vegetation from grass or trees instead of hunting for meat. They are usually docile monsters which may attack or run away if threatened. They range in many different sizes and species. Although they are all in the same group, many of the species are not closely related to each other. While other monsters in the series are known to have a strictly herbivorous diet, such as Diablos and Duramboros, this list refers only to those that belong to the in-game classification of Herbivores.
