An ugly thing. According to legend, this mutated creature is the otherworldly spawn of a wizard's breeding experiment. Yuck.

“Beauty is no quality in things themselves: It exists merely in the mind which contemplates them; and each mind perceives a different beauty. One person may even perceive deformity, where another is sensible of beauty; and every individual ought to acquiesce in his own sentiment, without pretending to regulate those of others.”
-David Hume

Useful Info

Ugly things are strangely-shaped, nauseating monsters that usually appear in groups. They are found mid-game in the Dungeon and in some branches, particularly the Vaults. They come in a rainbow of colours, each of which has its own elemental attributes. Their attack types also vary: some ugly things bite, some headbutt, and others still will slap you with tentacles.

Ugly Thing Varieties

Ugly things may change colour each turn they spend adjacent to other ugly things or a character with magic contamination. Using Irradiate or a wand of polymorph (100% success) will also case a colour change.

Tips & Tricks

  • Packs of ugly things will spontaneously change their damage and resistance types mid-fight. If you rely on elemental damage, keep track of what you're up against before attacking.
