In the Dungeons & Dragons fantasy role-playing game, humanoid is a type of creature, or "creature type." Humanoids are any creature shaped generally like a human (two arms, two legs, one head, or a humanlike torso, arms, and head), of small or medium size, with few or no supernatural or extraordinary abilities. Most humanoids can speak, and usually have well-developed societies.
Prior to the third edition, humanoid referred exclusively to orcs, goblinoids and similar creatures, while more advanced creatures such as elves and dwarves were referred to as demihumans and humans were outside of both categories.
