This page contains a list of every type of monster in ADOM, along with some basic information on the monster.

Currently, the alignment of a monster is indicated by the colour of the background on its name column:

  • A white background indicates a lawful monster
  • A light grey background indicates a neutral monster
  • A dark grey background indicates a chaotic monster

Note that "No effect" in the corpse effect column of these tables simply means that monster will drop a corpse and it has no special effects - it will still provide satiation. N/A indicates that monster cannot drop a corpse.
