The Hellhound is a creature type in Dungeon Keeper.


General Information Edit

The Hellhound is a fierce two-headed dog. They are first encountered as neutrals in Tickle, but become available in Nevergrim. They are excellent scouts with their early use of speed, and can be used as bodyguards to most of your creatures, but their inquisitive nature can sometime lead to them attacking the enemy by themselves, so it is a good idea to pay attention to them. They harbor an animosity for Demon Spawns, and will fight them all the time; the two will not share a Lair.

Whenever a Hellhound walks past a corpse they cock their legs and urinate on them, this aids decomposition and helps keeps your dungeon tidy, while boosting the rate at which Graveyards generate Vampires.
