Slayer monsters

Slayer monsters are monsters that have a Slayer requirement to be damaged. Some Slayer monsters have mechanics that need to be dealt with by bringing or wearing certain Slayer equipment, usually purchased from Slayer Masters, or the Grand Exchange.

Not all assignable monsters are Slayer monsters, as many do not have a Slayer requirement, nor do they require specific Slayer equipment. Most Slayer monsters can be killed off-task, but some can only be killed when on an assignment, namely Strykewyrms and Edimmu.

Some monsters have lower or higher-levelled substitutes that count toward the task. For a list of these, see Slayer assignment. That page also lists all assignments that do not require a Slayer level.
