Toilets are a SLASH'EM specific feature that allow the player to cure sickness, stunning and confusion, reduce nutrition, and poison weapons.


Praying while on a toilet square gives the message "You pray to the porcelain God." If you are sick, stunned, or confused "He smiles upon you." and you are cured. Otherwise "He ignores your pleas." Praying on the toilet will have no effect on your deity, and vice versa.


Sitting on a toilet cures your sickness if you are sick, and makes you less satiated by 200-599 nutrition points if you are satiated ("You sit on the toilet. You grunt."). Otherwise, "You don't have to go.", and there is no effect.


Dogs like to drink from toilets, so if you try drinking from a toilet while polymorphed into a dog, there is a 4/5 chance of finding the toilet water quite refreshing and gaining 10 points of nutrition. Otherwise, these are the possible effects:

  • 1/9 chance of breaking the toilet
  • 1/9 chance of creating a sewer rat (if they're not extinct or genocided)
  • 1/9 chance of creating a brown pudding (if they're not extinct or genocided)
  • 1/9 chance of creating a baby crocodile (if they're not extinct or genocided)
  • 5/9 chance of vomiting and losing some nutrition.


Dipping objects into a toilet wets them, poisons edged weapons and rots food.

General message: "Your <item> gets wet. Yuck!" Edged weapon message: "Your <edged weapon> gets wet. You cover it in filth. Yuck!"

Be careful, rust prone edged weapons can get rusted. However wooden edged weapons aren't rotted.

Dipping potions behaves like dipping them in to water. First they dilute, then turn in to uncursed potion of water. The advantage is that the toilet will never dry up like a fountain, and you don't need any special equipment to dip in them like with moats.

Breaking a toilet

Kicking the toilet has a 1/4 chance of breaking it. Breaking a toilet by any means turns it into a fountain and has a chance of summoning 2-6 baby crocodiles.

SLASH'EM Extended

In the Slash'EM Extended variant, amulets can be dropped down a toilet to receive a message that can be used to identify the amulet. The list of possible messages has its own page.
