Owlbear is a type of monster in ADOM. They are fantastical beasts that tend to appear quite early in the game. They are not notably powerful, at least nowhere near as dangerous as their monster memory description seems to imply, and have no special powers.

Monster memory[]

Made in the experiments of a demented wizard, who probably died at the claws of his own lethal creations, owlbears are a mix of giant owls and bears. Rearing to a massive eight feet, the creature's owl-like head gazes down on you. Its bright yellow eyes, which seem calm and wise, yet full of rage at the same time, follow your movements. With razor sharp claws, and a beak that can bite through metal, it starts towards you with a menacing screech. You pray to your god that you may survive this encounter, and hope it is in one piece.
