A surprisingly ambulatory mushroom. It wafts its spores over prey to send them into a deep sleep, making it simple for the fungus to kill and devour them. It can take months for its mycelia to fully infiltrate and digest victims.

Useful Info

Sleepcaps are early Dungeon monsters, appearing on D:4-8. Their melee attacks have a 50% chance to put the opponent to sleep if any damage is dealt. Unbreathing monsters and players are immune to sleep-inducing spores.

Tips & Tricks

  • In addition to being a monster with rPois and rN+++, the sleep is threatening to any character vulnerable to it. Sleep prevents you from moving, reduces your EV to 0, and allows monsters to stab you.
  • If you are immune to sleep (Undead, Gargoyle, Djinni, have clarity, or during berserk) or are unbreathing (Ice Form), then you have much less to fear.


  • Sleepcaps were added in 0.30.
