Many creatures appear in The Infernal City, some new, some old.

Antelope
Antelopes with twisted horns appear in Hircine's realm.
Barn Owl
Colin hears a barn owl in the Imperial City.

Carrion scorps are creatures found in the Sump of Umbriel that are known to feed on the bodies of the dead.

Chest Borer
A type of parasite found on Umbriel. Toel thinks of this when Annaïg tries to explain the concept of pregnancy.
Coot
Attrebus hears the calls of coots upon returning to Cyrodiil from Vile's realm, and it sounds like home to him.
Crocodile
Crocodiles live around Lilmoth. Annaïg believes that there is a were-crocodile around, but Mere-Glim points out that normal crocodiles could make the same tracks.
Curlew

Flounder
Mere-Glim witnesses a fish-monger selling flounder in Lilmoth.
Frog
Attrebus hears frogs singing in County Bravil.
Greem
A creature found in Elsweyr, though nothing else is known about it. Sul tries to get himself and Attrebus out of trouble by saying that they were a mile off the main road looking for a flock of greems because Attrebus had never seen one, rather than telling the truth: that they were bringing moon sugar to Khajiit.
Hare
Chef Toel creates a meal course for Lord Irrel using hare.
Hedgehog
Hedgehogs are one of the many things used as an ingredient in the kitchens of Umbriel; in one meal they are seasoned with eucalyptus.
Hob
Hobs are hairless monkey-like creatures used as assistants to the chefs on Umbriel. They are long-limbed, have very long, thin, delicate fingers, a huge toothless mouth and large green eyes in a goblinesque face, and very simple language skills. Annaïg names her first Hob "Luc" and her second "Dimple".
Horker
Horkers are three-tusked walruses found on the island of Solstheim. In Sathil, Attrebus claims that he is a naturalist and that he wants to study creatures such as the horker, which he had seen on the nearby beach.
Kraken Barnacle
A type of barnacle native to the seas around Lilmoth: dark green, and the size and shape of a large shark tooth. Mere-Glim finds them growing in the sump of Umbriel.
Lampen
A clamlike creature from Umbriel, used as a cooking ingredient.
Larkin
Ilzheven mentions a bamboo grove where larkins sang.
Moon-adder
A viper from Black Marsh. Its venom is fatal to most beings; Argonians, however, are resistant to it, and occasionally seek it out as an ecstasy-providing drug. Annaïg uses it when cooking.
Muskrey
A type of creature hunted in Ensleth Valley alongside elk and deer.
Nickfish
Nickfish are silver-colored fish found in the sump of Umbriel. They are a food of sessile crabs.
Nightjar
Attrebus hears nightjars in County Bravil.
Orchid Shrimp
A creature from the sump of Umbriel, with buttery-tasting meat. Slyr gives Annaïg a biscuit made with it, and Fhena asks Mere-Glim to bring her some for use in the kitchen she works in.
Phosphor Worm
A creature from the sump of Umbriel that gets used as an ingredient in its kitchens.
Pigeon
As Colin eats a meal on a roof, pigeons try to steal his food.
Pogfish
An edible type of fish. Annaïg's father has some of the salted meat at his house.
Proform
A featureless wormlike creature found in the sump of Umbriel. Whenever a person on Umbriel dies, the Ingenium calls a proform down to it and gives it a soul, and the proform attaches to the wall of the sump and grows into a person.
Ripper Eel
A type of eel found in Lilmoth; there are ones in the canal that have been trained to hunt Argonians swimming there, but a skooma smuggler avoids them by rubbing himself with eel-slime.
Scamp
Scamps are used as assistants to the chefs on Umbriel for hot work, because heat does not bother them.
Sea-Drake
Sea-Drakes are immense fish found in the sea around Black Marsh. They are described as being "like a crocodile, but with paddles instead of legs".
Sessile Crabs
Sessile crabs live on the floor of the sump of Umbriel. They are described as having squat, thorny bodies, with venomous claws on the end of twenty-foot-long yellow and viridian tentacles.
Sheartooth
Shearteeth are a type of fish found in the Sump on Umbriel. They have a "maw full of teeth", they can reach at least fifteen feet long, have a long long whip-like tail, dual swimming fins on the underside, "teeth that would shame a shark", and a tough hide. They are usually non-aggressive but will attack someone if the sump considers them a threat. "Sheartooth loin" is harvested by Skraw for the kitchens of Umbriel; Annaïg received some (among other things) from a Skraw working for Glim, and Glim himself later ate a sheartooth steak.
Shine
Shines are wispy yellow airborne creatures, a harmless cousin of the will-o'-wisp. They are seen in the Old Imperial Quarter of Lilmoth.
Silk Leech
Used as an ingredient in the kitchens of Tamriel.
Singe Anemone
A type of anemone found in the Sump on Umbriel. They have stingers, and because Mere-Glim's scales protected him from them, he took over the job of collecting them.
Slarjei
A creature from Elsweyr, said to be better in the desert than horses.
Soul-spinner
Soul-spinners are creatures of Umbriel, responsible for harvesting souls. They catch souls in their lines, and then the larva fly down to the prey. The larvae are moth-like and roughly as big as a person, with a round black head that only contains a needle. They are six-legged, and each leg ends in a similar needle. When they fly down to Nirn, they become ethereal and leave a silvery thread behind.
Snapadder
Snapadders are a type of snake. Annaïg uses the venom, which is bright green in color, in a dish as part of the cooking competition for the lords of Umbriel.
Trogfish
Trogfish are a type of fish found in Black Marsh. Mere-Glim would dive for them when he and Annaïg went to the levee at Yor-Tiq.
Were-bears
Hircine's drivers are were-bears: one in its human form looks like a massive albino Nord with blue tattoos and in beast form looks like "something between a man and a bear".
Whippoorwill
Attrebus hears whippoorwills in County Bravil.
Wisperill
Wisperills are luminescent films which float through the air in the realm of the Hist. They perform slow, colorful, aerial dances in the air. They were named by Mere-Glim and Fhena when Umbriel is brought to the realm.
Zilh Worm
A type of worm found on Umbriel, known to be a parasite. Toel thinks of this when Annaïg tries to explain the concept of pregnancy.
