Dungeon Keeper Wiki

Poison Cloud (DK1), or Gas Missile (DK2), is a creature spell that releases a cloud of toxic vapours. It is one of the signature moves of the Bile Demon.

Dungeon Keeper[]

"Forms a cloud of noxious gas capable of damaging both the enemy and also your own creatures. The gas cloud affects all who breathe it, not just the opposition."
— Dungeon Keeper Manual

Poison Cloud is a projectile which releases a poisonous gas cloud over an area where the spell hits. Note that this spell can injure both friend and foe alike, and can possibly kill enemies one is aiming to capture. This spell is powerful when used on enemies together in an area, such as when fighting, as it can deal continuous damage over time.

Bile Demons learn this as one of their signature moves, and can deal decent damage to enemies close to them while being themselves immune. Priestesses can also learn this spell but display an incredible lack of forethought, as not only do they take damage from their own spell, this often causes them to blow the gas away, along with any enemy - and friendly - creatures.

The Dungeon Keeper Goodies Disc contains wave files of Mentor dialogue that were cut from the game, one of which mentioning a 'Spore Cloud' spell being available.[2] This is possibly this spell, or an early version of it.
