In the Dungeons and Dragons fantasy role-playing game, the assassin vine is a dangerous plant which grows both in and underground.

Publication history[edit]

The assassin vine first appeared in the third edition Monster Manual (2000),[1] and then the 3.5 Monster Manual.


An assassin vine is basically a tree which uses its vines to kill victims and deposit the bodies near the roots for fertilizer. It consists of a main vine attached to the tree, about 20 feet long, with smaller, 5 foot long vines breaking off. It has both leaves and berries. The berries have a bitter taste and are used to make a heady wine despite being widely believed to be poisonous. The underground version of the assassin vine is darker in coloration to the ground dwelling one.
