Useful Info

Tengu warriors are aggressive tengu combatants that rely on their multiple melee attacks to take down adventurers. They move faster than average and generate with decent armour and occasionally shields. They can be found in the later portions of the Dungeon, the Depths, and the Vaults.

Tips & Tricks

  • Unless they just happen to generate very early on (pre-Lair), tengu warriors are not major threats. They themselves are about on par with orc knights in terms of threat level. Characters with poor defenses should avoid engaging them in melee; their multiple attacks are individually weaker than those of an orc warrior, but can add up quickly if you aren't dodging or avoiding many of them. If possible you should compensate for their decent evasion with unavoidable attacks.
  • Tengu warriors often generate with ego bucklers or kite shields. Keep an eye out for them if you're using one-handed weapons or playing a formicid.


  • Tengu warriors were often accompanied with a band of ravens prior to their removal in 0.17.
  • Tengu warriors were added in 0.13, but were disabled due to the eventual scrapping of the Forest. They were reintroduced in 0.14, showing up with bands of tengu in the Depths, and started appearing with bands of ravens in 0.15.
