An invisible stalker is an elemental assassin, summoned from the Elemental Plane of Air to a single purpose given by its master.


The creature is native to the Elemental Plane of Air but can be summoned into the material plane. The stalker is entirely loyal to its master, following their commands for the duration of the spell that forces its servitude.

As an assassin, a stalker always knows where its target is and no matter how far they are from each other, provided they are on the same plane of existence. It remains entirely invisible when they attack.[1]


The invisible stalker is the approximate shape of a human and stands around eight feet tall. Made entirely of air, however, it is completely invisible. Even magic which reveals invisible, such as see invisibility, shows only a vague outline.[1]


The following is drawn from the Monster Manual:[1]

  • Damage Resistances: Bludgeoning, Piercing, and Slashing from Nonmagical Attacks
  • Damage Immunities: Poison
  • Condition Immunities: Exhaustion, Grappled, Paralyzed, Petrified, Poisoned, Prone,[2] Restrained, Unconscious


  • Multiattack: The stalker can make two slam attacks during it's turn.
  • Slam: Attacks with a melee weapon +6 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. If hits: 2d6 + 3 bludgeoning damage.

Known stalkers[]

Two invisible stalkers were summoned by the Briarwoods and attacked the Greyskull Keep, most likely to eliminate Desmond, Vox Machina's information source of the Briarwoods' operations in Whitestone.[3]

The Mighty Nein encountered an invisible stalker within the Radiant Stair of the King's Cage.[4]

In Critical Role: Call of the Netherdeep, an infiltrator from the Sentinels of Memory, Lymmle Wist, summons two invisible stalkers to first steal a magic crystal that controls Ank'Harel's Life Dome from the Allegiance of Allsight scholar who supervises the facility, then attempt to kill the characters present.[5] Amkezne, the owner of Mystic Pursuits in the city's Suncut Bazaar, learned how to summon invisible stalkers from Wist, and employs one to guard her shop.[6]
