Monstrous humanoids are differentiated from humanoids by their monstrous or animalistic features. Not all of them are technically "humanoid" in body form. They often have different types of supernatural or extraordinary abilities.

All monstrous humanoids have darkvision out to 60 feet (20m). As a group, they have no other special abilities or immunities.
