In NetHack, when in combat with a hostile angel or non-unique major demon, they will randomly utter maledictions, much like a quest nemesis.[1][2]

Angelic maledictions

  • "Repent, and thou shalt be saved!"
  • "Thou shalt pay for thine insolence!"
  • "Very soon, my child, thou shalt meet thy maker."
  • "The great <deity> has sent me to make you pay for your sins!"
  • "The wrath of <deity> is now upon you!"
  • "Thy life belongs to <deity> now!"
  • "Dost thou wish to receive thy final blessing?"
  • "Thou art but a godless void."
  • "Thou art not worthy to seek the Amulet."
  • "No one expects the Spanish Inquisition!"

Demonic maledictions

  • "I first mistook thee for a statue, when I regarded thy head of stone."
  • "Come here often?"
  • "Doth pain excite thee? Wouldst thou prefer the whip?"
  • "Thinkest thou it shall tickle as I rip out thy lungs?"
  • "Eat slime and die!"
  • "Go ahead, fetch thy mama! I shall wait."
  • "Go play leapfrog with a herd of unicorns!"
  • "Hast thou been drinking, or art thou always so clumsy?"
  • "This time I shall let thee off with a spanking, but let it not happen again."
  • "I've met smarter (and prettier) acid blobs."
  • "Look! Thy bootlace is undone!"
  • "Mercy! Dost thou wish me to die of laughter?"
  • "Run away! Live to flee another day!"
  • The {demon name} casts aspersions on your ancestry.
  • "Thou hadst best fight better than thou canst dress!"
  • "Twixt thy cousin and thee, Medusa is the prettier."
  • "Methinks thou wert unnaturally stirred by yon corpse back there, eh, varlet?"
  • "Up thy nose with a rubber hose!"
  • "Verily, thy corpse could not smell worse!"
  • "Wait! I shall polymorph into a grid bug to give thee a fighting chance!"
  • "Why search for the Amulet? Thou wouldst but lose it, cretin."
