I love playing Idle Monster Tower Defense and even though progressing through the levels is slower than I had initially anticipated, I’m up for the challenge and definitely loving it so far.
And today I decided to make it easier for you to plan your moves – or at least satisfy your curiosity – and share a list of the Idle Monster TD monsters, as well as a few thoughts that I have regarding the best monsters in the game and how to select these towers (because this is what they are, after all) in order to get a quick progress.
A few days ago, I also wrote an Idle Monster TD guide filled with tips and tricks to help you play a better game and make sure that you know and take advantage of all the in-game features and goodies so make sure to check it out as well.
Now, we’ll move on to the list of monsters in Idle Monster TD, with all the details that you need about them. Afterwards, we’ll talk about the best monsters.
I won’t insist on detailing everything about the more common monsters, simply because they become obsolete and useless really fast. Instead, I will focus more on the rarest monsters which are a bit more difficult to unlock and about which I am sure you’re curious to find out more.

For the first two categories of monsters, I will only share the screenshot where you have them all listed, with base damage and stats.
We’ll go more in depth with the rarer monsters, which require a bit more attention.

Best Monsters in Idle Monster TD
You see that we have one of each type of monster in each rarity level. You can also easily see that each monster type is usually at least a little better than the same monster type in a more common category and definitely better that monsters available two rarity levels behind.
This further means that you should always start by placing your rarest monsters first. It rarely makes sense – even taking bonuses into account – to use a Ultra Rare monster if you have all Legendaries and Mythics available.
What you should look at instead is the various boosts that these monsters offer: for example, some give a certain damage boost if they are within the range of a monster of the same element. Some deal more damage the more monsters of the same type are on the map.
So the placement of your rarest monsters becomes more important: make sure that you place monsters of the same type close by if necessary, in order to get the boosts.
This would be our Idle Monster TD list of monsters so far – as well as some thoughts on how to select the best monsters in the game to get as far as possible through the stages. Any extra advice is welcome, so make sure to share your thoughts below.
