A potion of blood is a type of potion that appears in dNetHack and notdNetHack. It appears as a "blood-red potion" when unidentified.


Potions of blood make up 1.8% of all random potions in the dungeon.

Applying a tinning kit to a monster corpse with blood will always produce a potion of that monster's blood alongside a tin.

All vampires have a 23 chance of generating with at least one potion of blood - they may carry anywhere from one to four potions, with an equal chance of each quantity.


The potion of blood contains the blood of a specific monster, and acts similar to a tin: each potion of blood must be fully identified in order to reveal which creature's blood it contains. Quaffing a potion of blood prints a message describing what monster's blood it smells like if the character is a vampire or any non-herbivorous race, and then gives a yes/no prompt for drinking it.
