Ancient red dragons are a type of monster in ADOM. They are notable for their fire-based breath attack and a corresponding immunity to all fire-based attacks, while being highly vulnerable to cold. They also always drop a pile of treasure when killed. They can commonly be found in the Tower of Eternal Flames.
