Monsters can be biological creatures or independent human groups that can be fought. They have different mechanics, attacks, and characteristics than airships. [1]

Monsters are classified by the game as modules. Smaller creatures that come from a hive, such as the drones of the Clockwork Wasps and Giant Bees, are classified as crew.[2]

When killed, monsters can reward the player with money, a bonus towards research, or a special, unique bonus.[3]

Some monsters, such as the Giant Spiders, have multiple modules. The game's code has a cost for the monster modules. This cost gives an idea of power.
