Horned devil

From NetHackWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The horned devil, &, is the weakest of the major demons (slightly lower in difficulty than even the water demon). It is generated with either a trident (75% chance) or a bullwhip.

If you are polymorphed into one, tame horned devils will occasionally appear by your side during combat with the message "Some hell-p has arrived!". This is known as demon gating.

Since horned devils are flagged as only appearing in Gehennom, and no lawful creatures can be randomly generated there, they (along with barbed devils and erinys) are effectively never randomly generated. They most often appear in graveyards and devil lairs.
