A comical figure full of life and laughter. It looks very happy to see you... but is there a slightly malicious cast to its features? Is that red face paint or something altogether less pleasant?

“All the world loves a clown.”
-Cole Porter, “Be a Clown”. 1948

Useful Info

Killer Klowns are powerful, swift monsters found only in the Realm of Zot. They have a lot of HP, the speed of a centaur, and regenerate as fast as trolls. Their random-flavour melee attacks (fire, cold, nasty poison, drain XP, rot, blink, anti-magic) dictate that all your resistances should be up before you engage. They also blink around randomly like blink frogs, giving you chances to hit them at range.

Ability: Blink

Tips & Tricks

They have excellent magic resistance, but lack any elemental resistances, so it's not too hard to pile up the damage on them. Try to blast them at range before they can reach you.


Killer Klowns were originally murderous extraterrestrial pranksters in the 1988 Academy Award® winning comedy horror sci-fi film, Killer Klowns from Outer Space.


In 0.14 Klowns will have a different set of damage brands for their melee attack: strong poison, pain, drain speed, fire, cold, electric, and anti-magic.
