large kobold You're fighting a large kobold

This is a large kobold, differentiated from other kobolds by the fact that it is large. Too bad for you you didn't encounter a small kosubmissive.

Hit Message(s):

He boldly bites where no monster has bitten before. Yup. Ow. Ow! Eek! Eek! Ouch!

He bites you in the <giblets>. You have to make up new slang to describe how bad it hurts. Ooh! Ow! Ouch! Ow!

Critical Hit Message:

The kobold teaches you the meaning of the words "large" and "bold" as it boldly gives you a large bruise on your <shoulder>. Eek! Eek! Ugh!

Miss Message(s):

He tries to boldly bite where no monster has bitten before, but can't find any place on you that's not pre-bitten.

He tries to bite you in the shin, but all the bakers at dawn keep him from connecting.

Fumble Message:

The kobold runs at you, but you do that thing where you put your hand on his forehead and he just keeps running in place trying to get to you. Ha ha, kobold. (FUMBLE!)

  • This monster appears statistically equivalent to the lowercase K.


  • As with everything else in the Dungeons of Doom, this is a reference to the computer game NetHack.
  • Kobolds are tricky creatures popularized by games such as Dungeons & Dragons.
  • "To boldly bite where no monster has bitten before" is a tribute to the 1960s television series Star Trek, in which a voice-over narration during the opening credits ended with the phrase "To boldly go where no man has gone before."
  • "All the bakers at dawn" is a reference to a lyric from the song "New Slang" by The Shins, from their 2001 album Oh, Inverted World: "God speed all the bakers at dawn..."
