Each monster has a set amount of HP, or hit points, equal to the amount of damage that must be dealt to kill it. Monsters of the same zone will always have the same amount of HP, and with each zone, the number of HP all monsters have rises.
As the monsters get more HP, their Gold drop will also increase to keep up with the increased cost of the heroes that need to kill the monsters.
To advance in zones and progress in the game, you have to kill a certain amount of monsters each zone. This number depends on the following factors:
There are two types of zones: regular zones and boss zones. Regular zones require you to kill 10 monsters in order to unlock the next zone; boss zones only one. To make up for that, monsters on boss zones have more HP than a monster on a regular zone would have, and they have to be defeated within 30 seconds.
Kumawakamaru lowers the number of monsters required to finish a regular zone, up to a -8 reduction.
There are 11 different zone types, each containing a different set of regular monsters. Every zone type lasts 10 levels before it switches to the next one, with the exception of the first 10 zones, which contain 2 zone types instead of 1. Below is a list of which monsters appear on which type of zone.

Treasure Chest can be found on any non-boss zone. They give 10× the zones's base Gold when killed and that number can be increased further by Mimzee. The base spawn rate of Treasure Chest is 1%, but it can be raised with Dora.
Relic Oozes may replace any non-boss monster that would have spawned between zone 99 and 2/3rd of your highest zone, once per Ascension and only after your first Ascension. They drop Relic, equip-able items that provide various bonuses, similar to Ancients.
A Relic Ooze
Primal and Centurion Bosses
Starting at level 100, every boss zone has a chance to contain a Primal Boss instead. Primal Bosses are just like regular bosses, except for the fact that they give you Hero Souls, as well as the regular amount of Gold. Just like Gold, Hero Souls scales depending on your zone.
Only the first boss on a zone can ever be primal. Once it has been defeated, the next boss that spawns will be a regular one, and will not award Hero Souls again.
In addition, every 100 zones a Centurion Boss can be found. The game will treat them as if the zone had a Primal Boss, the only difference being that Centurion Bosses have a 100% spawn rate, whereas Primal Bosses only spawn 25% of the time.
The first 10 Centurion Bosses are unique monsters that cannot be found on any other zone. When you defeat these bosses for the first time, you will get an achievement.

Tako, Head of the Octopi So this is where all of those tentacles were coming from..
Tako Returns He was a robot this entire time!? Or maybe he wanted a rematch..
Lagomorph of Caerbannog It's just a BUNNY! Here I got 'em. *whole head gets bitten off*
When reaching a boss level, there is a very low chance that instead of the normal boss for that level, it will spawn this "Kappa" boss instead. It is a Turtloid Warlock enemy with the twitch.tv "Kappa" emote on its face.
Ramicorn A little far from the grazing grounds aren't you?
These boss monsters only appear in Clan raids, and as such, being in a Clan is required for fighting them. They don't take damage from your DPS, instead you have to click them, but with a damage that only increases when you get primal Hero Souls. Killing them rewards you with Hero Souls.
