Chaos Strikes Back Creatures

Overview

There are 25 kinds of creatures in Chaos Strikes Back (Dungeon Master has 27 of them), and many creature generators triggered by walking in the dungeon. Although the names of the two "missing" creatures (Ruster and Lord Order) are listed in the graphics.dat file, they are not present in the dungeon and do not have associated graphics.

The Chaos Strikes Back Creatures names on this site are those found in the Chaos Strikes Back Hint Oracle (English Release 1). "Internal names" are also listed when different from the Hint Oracle names (they can be found inside the graphics.dat file of both Chaos Strikes Back for Amiga version 3.1 and Chaos Strikes Back for X68000). The internal names are also visible by using the magical creature identification scroll found at (04,21,21).

You will find all the characteristics and abilities of creatures on Technical Documentation - Dungeon Master and Chaos Strikes Back Creature Details.

Fighting tips:

  • Open a door, wait for a creature to stand in it, then close it. Most creatures will take damage.
  • Close a pit, wait for a creature to stand on it, then open it. Most creatures will die by falling.
