Useful Info

One of Crawl's sillier monsters, curse toes are hovering severed toes with extremely dangerous abilities. They can torment you, and summon mushroom or deathcaps around you to block your escape. They also have good defenses, and create clouds of miasma when travelling. Thankfully, curse toes move slowly. They can be encountered in the Realm of Zot, certain unpleasant Crypt and Tartarus vaults, and Tartarus-themed Ziggurat floors.

Tips & Tricks

  • A weapon of holy wrath or Dispel Undead makes fighting them a little easier. You can limit the impact of their torments and their summons' drain life with rN or Statue Form, and negate them entirely by being undead or in lichform.
    • A potion of lignification will make you immune to torment. Just beware of anything else that could be lurking near.
    • Curse toes are unaffected by silence.
  • Most elemental damage is all but useless against their resistances. Ice Magic is only partially resisted, however, so area-of-effect cold damage spells such as Freezing Cloud and Ozocubu's Refrigeration will at least be somewhat effective.


  • Prior to 0.13, curse toes could only summon wandering mushrooms with their Summon Mushroom spell, but knew Summon Undead as well.
