Monster (command)

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The #monster extended command allows you to use the special ability of a monster form you are polymorphed into. This may cost some energy. If you do not have any such ability, you will receive the message "Any special ability you may have is purely reflexive." If you are not polymorphed, you will receive the message "You don't have a special ability in your normal form!"
