A mini-boss is a creature that spawns with abilities or stats beyond what that creature type normally possesses. Not all creatures are capable of producing mini-bosses, but those that do tend to generate them in small packs. They can be differentiated from other creatures by the adjective included before their name (ex. ghostly, shining, etc), these adjectives also reveal the special abilities of the mini-boss.

Mini-bosses may also be referred to as "glam critters," "gifted creatures," or "boosted critters" by some and their special abilities are sometimes referred to as "boons".
Below is a list of creatures that may produce mini-bosses. If a creature inhabits more than one area they may not spawn mini-bosses in every area (particularly if the areas are located in different zones), they are known to exist in the areas listed blow, however.
Mini-bosses may be appraised to receive a hint about what their special abilities are.
