Useful Info

Goliath frogs are acidic amphibians that attack from two tiles away, possibly corroding you. They are found primarily in the Swamp.

Tips & Tricks

  • A source of corrosion resistance is helpful, though you need not keep it on after killing the frogs -- you are unlikely to encounter other sources of acid damage in the Swamp.
  • Unlike most other threats in the Swamp, these frogs are not resistant to poison. Curare darts or Mephitic Cloud work well to slow them down.


Much like real-life goliath frogs, Dungeon Crawl's goliath frogs lack vocal cords and are silent.
