This article is about the general concept of a "monster". For the #monster extended command, see Monster (command).

In addition to yourself, the Mazes of Menace are occupied by monsters. They may be randomly generated, produced by magic or deliberately made by the game to fulfill some role.

You may attack any monster you come across, but beware! they may retaliate. Monsters may be tame, peaceful or hostile. They may be in possession of things, either from birth or through the course of their travels, which you may claim upon their death. Other things, such as their corpses, will only be generated when they die. The many species of monsters are grouped into monster classes, corresponding to their ASCII symbols.

Some monsters will wear armor, wield weapons or use other items.

In addition to this list, several online bestiaries also exist[1].
