Fire giant is a type of monster in ADOM. They are strong and tough monsters that can attack from afar with rocks, and can smash doors. Like most creatures of fire they are immune to heat, but highly vulnerable to cold spells — something certainly worth bearing in mind for physically weak spellcasters trying to survive against them.

Fire giants can commonly be found in the Tower of Eternal Flames, though they do not (usually) appear in the temple itself.

Monster memory[]

These red and orange skinned oversized humanoids usually have flowing hair that greatly resembles a wild fire. They are very muscular and as destructive as the flames they prefer to inhabit. Regardless of their surroundings, their favourite method of destruction involves crushing or smashing.
