Dire Badgers are larger and fiercer than the typical badgers found in the wilderness. They are certainly tameable by those who know wildlife, such as Druids and Rangers.
- "Dire Badgers are larger, more vicious versions of their common cousins. They are often found in the company of powerful ranger or druids." ("Examine" Description, NWN)
Dire Badgers are a monster and a summonable companion in Neverwinter Nights.
