Creatures, according to the story of Dungeon Defenders, are an evil group whose leaders were known as the Old Ones. The parents of the main Heroes locked this evil away in the Eternia Crystals. One day after their parents left for a long journey the Heroes accidentally released a small portion of this evil back into Etheria. These creatures are on a rampage to release their masters from the Eternia Crystal.

According to the story of Quest for the Lost Eternia Shards four evil creatures stole pieces of a shattered Eternia Crystal. The heroes set out to retrieve these lost four pieces, but find the evil creatures setting up arms with their own hordes of creatures. Here the heroes run into new and powerful creatures.
