Useful Info

Chaos spawn are weak tier-4 demons with potentially dangerous chaos-branded attacks; each time they hit you, they inflict a random effect on you. Possibly more dangerous are the clouds of seething chaos which they leave behind (though the game does warn you if you try to step into one). They are occasionally found in the Abyss, Hell, or Pandemonium, and some enemy casters may summon them with the Summon Demon spell.

Tips & Tricks

  • Kill them at range. Although it's unlikely that their attacks will paralyze you, confuse you, or send you hurtling into the Abyss, it's best not to risk it.
  • They are one of the few demons which lack poison resistance, and they have low HD. Mephitic Cloud may turn them right back against their summoners.

Alternate Tiles

Being creatures of chaos, chaos spawn can take many forms:

The difference here is purely cosmetic. In console, they instead change to a random color every turn.
