Eye of destruction is a type of monster in ADOM. Whilst not powerful or tough, the dark green eyes are often feared by PCs relying on melee combat since they have the power to destroy any non-artifact item the PC has equipped, even items made of eternium or crystal. They do not always use this power, so even PCs that can't kill them straight away might be lucky enough to avoid equipment destruction. Their melee attack, should it damage the PC, can cause confusion.

Monster memory[]

This member of the floating eye family feeds on the disintegration of substances, possibly deriving energy by destroying the bonds that keep things together. Objects or creatures that come in contact with the creature may be destroyed beyond recovery, and so these creatures are feared by all who value their possessions.
