Vapor rat is a type of monster in ADOM. They are mid-game pests whose attacks always penetrate armor and corrupt. Whilst they are easy to kill and their weak attacks are often of little threat to the PC's life itself, the corruption they spread can still have lasting effects.

Swarms of vapor rats are always generated in the Air Temple. Interestingly, despite residing in the electrically charged temple they are not immune to shock attacks

Monster memory[]

When walking in fogs or mists, many people hear odd skittering noises that they attribute to strange echoes in the mist; they are really the sounds of giant rats who have bred in the fogs for so long, they have taken part of it into themselves and now have a hazy, misshapen border at their edges that makes them difficult to strike since opponents aren't really sure where the rat ends and the mists begin.
