Steel zombie is a monster in ADOM. They are normally generated in Darkforge and can very rarely spawn randomly in dungeons.

Steel zombies are somewhat proficient in melee, able to ignore the PC's armor and having sufficient protection of their own. They are also able to regenerate, which (coupled with their PV) can pose a problem for a PC with low damage output. In practice, though, they will be encountered almost exclusively in Darkforge, where they fade in comparison with this place's top threat: steel golems.

Despite their in-game description and being represented with a 'Y' symbol, steel zombies are not actually constructs, but undead. This can be revealed with a stethoscope, which generates the standard for undead message (The steel zombie seems to be rather dead.). They are thus vulnerable to undead slaying melee and missile weapons and receive 1.5x damage from blessed items.

Probably due to their strange nature they do not possess the common undead ability to see in the dark.

Monster memory[]

A huge mockery of a man, of steel and copper, with great taloned hands. The gleaming red eyes catch sight of you, and steam wafts from its back as it lumbers toward you. Its mouth is fixed in a hideous gaping grin, belching fire.
