Hell hound is a type of monster in ADOM. They are beasts that are capable of breathing fire (though this is usually not very powerful), and are immune to fire attacks. Unlike true creatures of fire, hell hounds are not particularly vulnerable to cold (or any other elements).

Monster memory[]

A huge, snarling bulldog hurtles toward you. Its black, hairless skin seems to pulsate with blood red light, and its eyes are deep pits of flame. You smell the stench of sulfur as it exhales gouts of black smoke, and twists its jaws into a hungry snarl.
