Giant boar is a type of monster in ADOM. They are found roaming forests in the wilderness once the PC reaches level 15. They are extremely fast, and surprisingly strong and tough; whether planning to engage the beast with melee, missiles, magic or mindcraft, the PC had better be fully prepared. They often leave their skulls when killed.

Monster memory[edit source]

A feared variety of wild pig, the boar has a low, stout body and thick neck, needed to support the large, bony head and its long teeth that stick forward like short swords. The boar’s greatest threat is a charging run that has been known to skewer careless hunters and even take down some hunter’s mounts. Attacks against the head have been known to dull weapons, so brighter opponents focus on the body.
