Boss Rush Banter: Dungeons and Dragon’s Mimics — Overhyped but Underutilized

Mimics are among the most popular and well known monsters from Dungeons & Dragons. We all cheered when one appeared in Dungeons & Dragons: Honor Among Thieves, but as iconic as the toothy chest-shaped surprises are, they’re also one of the most underutilized by streamers.

In all of Critical Role, there are only five instances. Most are chests, but Matt Mercer does spice things up with a wall mimic and cabinet mimic.

But why are we stopping there?

Fans have created house mimics, damsel-in-distress mimics, and even this amazing warforged mimic by Phill-Art!

Are our monster coffers simply too full to put these polymorphs to good use? Or is the nostalgia for chest-shaped gobble fiend really that strong?

Let us know what you think about mimics in the comments below or join the conversation on Boss Rush Network’s Discord and Facebook.
