Throughout Pixel Dungeon’s depths lie many different enemies, all increasing in strength, the deeper you go. Enemies at deeper depths also have some additional abilities, and may be immune to certain things.

Many of them drop items, such as potions, scrolls, weapons, and other valuables. The drop percentage varies, and is never 100 % (except for special drops).

When in battle with multiple enemies, go to a doorway, or confined pathway; this way, you can only be attacked by one enemy at a time.

Tips Edit

  • Dispatch enemies one at a time in narrow corridors or from behind a door.
  • Use a Wand of Amok on enemies. This will make them attack other enemies nearby.
  • If an enemy with a long-range attack spots you, run behind a door or around a corner, so they don’t use their long range attacks.
    • If you aren't close enough to a door/corner or are closer to the enemy, use a Wand of Blink, or go towards the enemy to close the distance between you and them.
  • Tapping the Examine ('?') button, and then tapping on an enemy, will show its description, health, and any de/buffs it may have.
    • For Animated statues, this will also show the weapon they are wielding, which is useful to decide whether or not to fight them.
  • When you're about to face a normal-speed melee opponent and there's only one space between you, using your turn to close the gap will set you up to be struck with the first blow; instead, hit the 'Wait' button and let them approach you, so you get to start the battle with the initial strike on the next turn.
    • When dealing with faster enemies, like crabs, you should instead use your turn to walk one space away.
    • This strategy is not useful for enemies with ranged attacks.
  • When an enemy is asleep (upon entering a depth, or via Scroll of Lullaby) and is kept from being awoken, further spawning of that particular enemy type is hindered throughout your time spent at that depth (even with multiple visits to that depth).
    • The only time this might not be the case is if the depth hasn't yet reached its 'Enemy Spawn Limit', but for the most part, it holds true.
    • As long as none of the enemies are awoken, you'll be interruption-free.
