For other uses, see Leveled Creatures.

Leveled Creatures are creatures whose health, magicka, and stamina are upgraded as the player gains levels — a feature introduced in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind. In The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, not all characters or enemies level up with the Dragonborn: Giants, for example, are at a static level, which means they are always level 32, as are mammoths. Dragons, by contrast, are always leveled.

Typically, as the Dragonborn levels up, weaker creatures will be replaced by higher level forms of that creature, for example: Bandits, after a certain level requirement has been met, will start to be replaced with Bandit Outlaws, Bandit Marauders and so on.

On the other hand, certain creatures will be dependent on the place they are encountered in, such as ice wolves being present in Winterhold Hold, instead of the common wolf found everywhere else.
