The Salamander is a Creature in Dungeon Keeper 2.


Lizard-like creatures that have, over the years, adapted to life surrounded by lava. They are reasonably handy in combat situations (particularly in earlier levels), but their main asset is definitely their immunity to fire, lava and hot things in general (except the Mistress, of course). This allows them to wade through streams of lava that would prove a painful obstacle to your other minions, making them moderately good scouts (particularly in possession). This, coupled with their moderate combat abilities, fiery and/or corrosive spells and their love of training makes them a fair addition to a Keeper's dungeon.

Unfortunately, they are unsuited to work involving research or manufacturing. [1]

The Mentor's ThoughtsEdit

"Behold a Salamander; graceful ancient lizard who cannot be harmed by fire. He'll even wade through lava streams with no impediment."
The Mentor, Campaign Mode
"A Salamander has joined you. These reptiles are extremely hot-blooded, and will happily wade through lava."
The Mentor, Pet Dungeon Mode
