** Also fits the mechanic of "cancellation", which removes special abilities from monsters and turns almost all items into mundane equivalents (potions of water, blank scrolls and books, dead wands, etc, and it removes all enchantments and bless/curse status). And if you're not careful, you might have it done to your entire inventory at once.

** A Wand of Death, the Finger of Death spell, a bad roll on a poison check, doing anything that involves your bare skin and anything even tangentially related to a footrice including the contents of their eggs, hitting a Floating Eye in some cases, encountering a soldier ant/leocrotta/mūmak/minotaur when unprepared for melee, Medusa's gaze. A drowning attack is technically a two-hit kill but feels like a one-hit kill.

** To name a few: A Wand of Death, the Finger of Death spell, a bad roll on a poison check, doing anything that involves your bare skin and anything even tangentially related to a footrice including the contents of their eggs, hitting a Floating Eye in some cases, encountering a soldier ant/leocrotta/mūmak/minotaur when unprepared for melee, Medusa's gaze. A drowning attack is technically a two-hit kill but feels like a one-hit kill.kill. ** Two artifact weapons, the Vorpal Blade and the Tsurugi of Muramasa, have a 5% chance to inflict instant death, which is completely irresistable to anything humanoid (and the majority of things that aren't). These are guaranteed to spawn in the hands of two classes' quest nemeses (giving those bosses the 5% chance to instantly kill you), and the vorpal blade can randomly be given to monsters on the very last level of the game.

* {{Nerf}}: Version 3.6.0 makes Elbereth significantly less permanent - even burned-in engravings of 'Elbereth' have a chance to fade when they turn monsters away, and the word itself requires you to stand upon it to activate, meaning that you cannot simply burn-in the word to protect a space for your stash or deny entry of monsters.

* KarmaMeter: Your alignment record, which, just like it sounds, is a record of how well you've been sticking to your CharacterAlignment. What effects it, naturally enough, depends on what that alignment is. If the record is below zero, you can use a cross-aligned altar to change your alignment permanently, though doing this too early is a one-way ticket to UnwinnableByDesign, since you can't ever change ''back''.

* ButtDialingMordor: The BigBad Wizard of Yendor lives in an isolated tower in the middle of a dungeon level, which can normally only be reached by going down through the outskirts of that level, to a lower level which contains a magic portal to the tower. If you have a telepathic pet, the pet may helpfully wake the Wizard with a ranged psychic attack when you first cross his level, which can draw him out before you're ready to fight him.
