Being breathless allows one to travel underwater; it makes one amphibious.[1]. Furthermore, breathless players cannot choke on food, but will instead "vomit voluminously" and lose 1000 nutrition.[2] Breathlessness protects from sleeping gas traps[3][4][5] and stinking clouds.[6][7] It does not protect from a worn amulet of strangulation, though it does prevent from choking on it.

Breathlessness is only granted by eating or wearing an amulet of magical breathing, but possessed naturally by many monsters.
