Useful Info

Alligators are a mean step up from crocodiles, capable of ambushing adventurers with surprising speed and powerful bites. They can be found in the Swamp, with a 20% chance to be accompanied by a second alligator outside of vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Their willpower is non-trivial, but a gifted Hexer can overcome it. In addition, they lack any elemental resistances and are cold-blooded, making Conjurations reasonably effective against them. They also lack see invisible, making invisibility an appealing option against them.


  • In 0.31, alligators became faster and got a drag attack, but lost their Sprint ability. Also, alligators' damage and maximum HP were nerfed.
  • Prior to 0.18, alligators were able to hide in water.
  • Prior to 0.17, an alligator had a chance to spawn with additional baby alligators.
  • Alligators were added in 0.6-d619ec97.
