If the bolt head is sticking out, vise grip pliers, or grind two sides flat and use an adjustable wrench. If the head is sunk in and you use an allen head or something similar that will be a lot harder.

Large vice grips. and tap it with a hammer to spin it if necessary. just in case. be sure to turn the bolt in the correct direction. you never know sometimes, but some guys get it wrong since the oil drain plug is under the motorcycle.

Righty tighty, lefty loosey. When looking directly at the head of the bolt, counterclockwise loosens.

Words aren't children and there's nothing wrong with killing them to clarify a point or keep the peace.

You might try a pipe wrench. They are designed to work on round pipes, and bite harder the more you pull. Did you get a new drain plug to replace it?

A Weil Adjustamatic 8" speed wrench will usually take out rounded-off bolts or nuts that size if you have room to get it on there.

The 6" also works great on brake line nuts etc. the larger wrench sizes are good for iron pipe fittings etc. The 3-surface grip is key to how they work. Harder you pull, the more the teeth dig in.

Several on Ebay now: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Weil-8-Adju...YAAOSwz~ZdZV5x

There are several other companies making similar ones now.

The other suggestions are also good.
