If you’ve picked up Horizon Zero Dawn, you’re likely familiar with the wide variety of robotic animals that inhabit the game’s environments. Throughout your monster-hunting adventures, you will surely find some favorite and least favorite foes to fight or perhaps flee in fear from.

These creatures were judged based on their combat abilities and overall look, including some of the more spoiler-y enemies featured later in the story.
