Monsters Entry 50: The dark prince of vampires. His tower stands guard at the entrance to hell.
Spawns: Vlad's Tower in Hell, Level 5-1
Health: 10 HP
Damage: 1 (Contact)
Stunnable: Yes
Corpse: No
Size: Normal (1x1)
Notes: Drops Vlad's Cape when killed.

Vlad is an exceptionally powerful vampire who is always found on the first level of Hell at the top of a tall tower.

He can be killed for his upgraded cape and to acquire his amulet that grants the Spelunker invulnerability to damage from fire and lava. Although it is not necessary to kill him to obtain the amulet. 


Vlad is named after Vlad the Impaler - also known as Dracula - who inspired the villain of Bram Stoker's vampire novel. More specifically, it seems likely he is inspired by the version of Vlad in NetHack, who is also a vampire who appears in a tower in the underworld (named Gehennom in NetHack 3.1.0 and Hell in previous versions).

Visually, he resembles Gary Oldman's portrayal of Dracula in the 1992 film directed by Francis Ford Coppola.
