Tiger

From NetHackWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The tiger, f, is a monster in NetHack. It is the most powerful of the felines, but unlike most of its brethren, it is only as fast as the player character is at normal speed.

Strategy

Due to lacking the higher speed of other big cats, tigers can be avoided slightly more easily.

Variants

In dNethack, the tiger is red rather than yellow (f), but is otherwise unchanged.

Encyclopedia entry

1. A well-known tropical predator (_Felis tigris_): a
feline. It has a yellowish skin with darker spots or
stripes. 2. Figurative: _a paper tiger_, something that is
meant to scare, but has no really scaring effect whatsoever,
(after a statement by Mao Ze Dong, August 1946).

Tyger! Tyger! burning bright
In the forests of the night,
What immortal hand or eye
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
[ The Tyger, by William Blake ]
