Chaos knights are monsters in ADOM. They tend to show up in mainly in the mid-to-late game.

Chaos knights can see invisible and have poisonous attacks. They are generally not dangerous compared to other monsters that tend to be found in the mid-to-late game. Rather, they are useful monsters to hunt as they drop a number of useful items.

Items dropped

The following is a list of items that can be dropped by slain chaos knights. Note that the given chances for each drop are estimates based on tests on 100 chaos knights carried out by nightcrawler226.

Monster memory[]


This defender and proponent of chaos, usually well equipped, is eager to convince others of the benefits of chaos, using as much force and corruption as needed to convert any being less chaotic than itself to the cause. Theirs is a single-minded dedication to the cause, and they are well-practiced at conversions.


You can't determine what race this fighter has once been, since the forces of chaos she serves have torn and twisted her features. She still moves on two legs, but the knees fold in the wrong direction and the face is completely flat; nose and ears have disappeared, the mouth has no lips and the eyes are as dead as those of a fish. The skin is sickly pale shimmering with a hint of color. The chaotic allegiance has not only distorted her mind and body, even her honor as a knight has suffered, for she doesn't hesitate to stab fleeing foes in the dark, kills defenseless enemies and even poisons her blade.
