Fairy dragon is a type of monster in ADOM. They are rare creatures with a unique arsenal of breath weapons and magical abilities.

As of v. 1.2.0, they are able to breathe bolts of various different elements (whereas in prior versions, they just breathed water). They can cast a teleportation spell, which they will invoke on the PC rather than teleporting themselves. They also sing, which can confuse their target due to the "disharmonic nature of the melody" (rather than put them to sleep, as harpies or jackalweres would).

A rare statue will generate a fairy dragon, which may be tame.

Special abilities[]

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 22, PV: 0, Hits: 10, Attacks: 2, Damage: 3-5. Speed: 120.

Corpse effects[]

Unique both in life and death, fairy dragons' corpses apparently have the power to cure the PC of any disease when eaten... as well as confusing him/her. As fairy dragons channel magic, eating one may also increase the PC's Mana (albeit rarely).

Monster memory[]

A miniature dragon with an impish grin, this cute little fellow has abilities other dragons might envy. Its arsenal of breath weapons is varied and can prove deadly to an opponent who under-estimates the dragon based upon its diminutive size. They are occasionally seen in the company of certain elves.
