Lightning lizard is a type of monster in ADOM. They are somewhat fast and powerful monsters that start to show up in the early-to-mid game, and have a nasty lightning breath attack that has a very long range and bounces off walls. They have a corresponding immunity to shock attacks.

Special abilities[]

  • Immune to shock
  • Occasionally shrugs off bolts and other resistible magic
  • Breathes lightning

Common stats[]

Level: 1, DV: 19, PV: 8, Hits: 59, Attacks: 3, Damage: 6-18. Speed: 110.

Corpse effects[]

Lightning lizard corpses grant intrinsic shock resistance; blessed corpses have a small chance of granting shock immunity instead of resistance. In both cases same message "Shocking taste!" will be shown, so you should find out what exactly you get by your own. Looks like the chance to get immunity is quite good, not less than 10%.

Monster memory[]

An overgrown lizard with yellow stripes running down the dark black scales. The smell of ozone fills the air around this creature. The air crackles expectantly as it moves about, with occasional sparks of light on its skin.
