Not to be confused with Haste Creature.

SpeedMonster Icon Small Speed Monster, or Speed Creature,[1][2] is an incredibly useful Keeper spell which doubles the speed or any creature it is cast upon. It can be cast on any friendly creature directly or through the Battle Information panel, and can be cast on tortured enemies to speed up their suffering.

This spell is one of the most useful and diverse spells available, as it can be used to speed up any task, such as researching, manufacturing, fighting, mining and even moving, sleeping and eating. Creatures under this effect are followed by afterimages and move at double speed. This spell wears off after some time, but some creatures learn their own version of the spell. Using this spell on enemies being tortured causes them to suffer twice and quickly, increasing conversion rate. Noting this, one should keep an eye on them as this also means they take damage twice as quickly. Alternatively, why not let the torture take its time and let them suffer?

The Dungeon Keeper Goodies Disc contains wave files of Mentor dialogue that were cut from the game, one of which mentioning an 'Accelerator' spell being available.[3] This is presumably either this spell, the SpeedMonster Icon Small Speed Creature spell, or an early version of one of them.
