Ancient blue dragons are a type of monster in ADOM. They are notable for their lightning-based breath attack and a corresponding immunity to all shock-based attacks. They also always drop a pile of treasure when killed. They can commonly be found in the aptly named Blue Dragon Caves.

Monster memory[]

This dragon sneers down upon you with contempt. You meets its gaze, and sense the treachery and greed of this terrible foe. Its nearly crystalline scales gleam in the flickering light cast by the electric aura which crackles continually around it. There is a hum of power in the air which makes your hair begin to stand on end. The dragon begins to chuckle ominously as it slithers closer to you.
