Steel horror is a type of monster in ADOM. They are construct monsters that rarely appear in dungeons, though they often appear in Darkforge. They are quite tough, and attack several times per turn. They are still considerably easier to destroy than steel golems, and not as dangerous as steel zombies with their penetrating attacks.

Monster memory[]

This mass of steel tubes, blades, and wheels looks less like a creature than a tinker's cart, yet somehow it is alive. It rumbles forward with a stench of burning oil, its blades spinning mindlessly but very fast, the tubes sweeping back and forth as if looking for prey.
