The Hound is a creature type in Dungeon Keeper.
A double headed dog who is great at guarding and pointing out heroes or enemy creatures. These dogs sniff out enemies behind walls and get as close to them as possible. They also cock their legs on dead bodies to aid decomposition.
-- Dungeon Keeper Manual
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 immunity to Lava, but are rather average fighters with medium defense and health values, so they might get easily into combat situations they can´t win, e.g. when running into territory of enemy Keepers. Their incredible speed and good damage output makes them excellent units for fighting enemy spell casters like Fairies and Wizards. They harbor an animosity for Demon Spawns, and will fight them if they encounter them in 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. They can also detect enemy units on the map, preventing you from digging into an ambush. They will stand in the nearest position to the enemy and bark against the wall.
