The woolly mammoth, q, is a monster that appears in EvilHack and Hack'EM. A woolly mammoth is a strong, herbivorous animal with a crushing trunk attack and two powerful tusk attacks that can send a foe flying.

The woolly mammoth is the only eligible steed for a player giant.


In EvilHack, woolly mammoths are only randomly generated in the Ice Queen's Realm.


The woolly mammoth is the strongest member of the quadruped monster class in both variants by far, and can crush unwary characters in a matter of turns.

A somewhat common strategy for the Astral Plane known as "woolly rain" involves using a cursed scroll of genocide to generate woolly mammoths, then using them to clear out various monsters, similar to the "purple rain" strategy involving purple worms.
