Goblin berserker is a type of monster in ADOM. The berserkers are naturally a lot more powerful than regular goblins, albeit a lot rarer. They are otherwise unnotable.

Special abilities[]


Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 10, PV: 0, Hits: 16, Attacks: 2, Damage: 2-12. Speed: 100.

Corpse effects[]

No effect besides satiation. Goblins "don't sit well" with PCs of most races, though this has no effect on the PC or their alignment.

Monster memory[]


Unlike saner goblins, the berserker enjoys fighting against stronger enemies, hurling himself screaming at the foe, with no need for coercion by his superiors. Instead of running away at the first sign of trouble, this fighter bravely stands his ground. Not surprisingly, the berserkers have risen to a high position in the goblin army, second only to the chieftain.


A rare and short-lived exception among the cowards that goblins are, this small humanoid hurls herself at any foe, even if she's hopelessly outclassed. Goblin berserkers hardly ever survive their first battle, but in the goblin warbands berserker platoons are quite important as they give their companions the possibility for tactical re-positioning (a.k.a. running away) while they valiantly get slaughtered.
