A Duros, an example of a humanoid.
"If you're not a humanoid, she's not much to look at. But grav-ball's never been more popular and Deme Tryshyn is the real deal. It doesn't matter if a kid has one limb or seven, they probably have Tryshyn's picture projecting on their sleeping quarters wall."
Mij Rawd

A humanoid species (also sometimes called anthropoid) was one that was similar in overall form to Humans, the most common sentient species in the galaxy. The term is less specific than Near-Human, which generally implies common biological ancestry with Humans.

Classification of a species as "humanoid" was not standardized or strict. Generally, a humanoid species had to have a similar anatomy to Humans at least in some degrees: that is, an upright bipedal stance, a head with two eyes, nose for breathing and smelling and mouth for nutrition and communication. Symmetrically arranged on either side of the torso (which is the main section of the body) were two arms -- each of which ended in hands that had a variable number of fingers (used for manipulation of objects) -- and two legs -- which ended in feet (used for locomotion). Humanoids generally had sparse hair, mainly concentrated on the head or face.

Slight variations and deviations from this general 'template' could be overlooked and a species could still be classified as humanoid. For example Duros had no ears, nose, or hair; Twi'leks and Togruta featured headtails; and many non-Humanoids had Humanoid features. Wookiees, although seeming animalic, could be called humanoids.

The term humanoid should not be confused with Near-Human, which is the term used to describe species and races that were closely related, biologically, to baseline Humans.

Non-humanoid sentient species had distinctly nonhuman characteristics, such as tails, additional limbs (or even no limbs, as with the Slith), wings, additional heads (as the Cha'wen'hes), or invertebrate characteristics (as the Gree).

Creatures

Creatures are the inhabitants of Tibia aside from human players and NPCs. Every different type creature has its own characteristics which make it unique.

Creatures share the entire world of Tibia, so they can be found all throughout the land. They will generally stay with other creatures of their own kind, and different creatures prefer different environments. This is why you can find Deer and Rabbits in grassy places. Slimes will always be found near water (usually underground), Dwarves spend most of their time in the mines and Demons prefer places deep underground. Usually, the most dangerous places are the hardest to reach.

Elementals

The dangerous elementals are apparently uncontrolled by any other creature. Their motives are hidden, but they are obviously intelligent in their tactics. They have also mastered many strong magic spells.

By their very nature, different types of elementals are almost never found together, but there is no apparent conflict between them.

Magical Creatures

Magic creatures of Tibia are defined as being being able to manipulate magic at will from birth. Creatures such as Minotaur Mages and Elf Arcanists do not have a rightful place here because they were taught in the arts.
