Harpies and Harpy Hags are level 2 creatures of Dungeon. They are recruited from the Harpy Loft. Harpies are half-women/half-vulture in appearance. They have a swooping attack that returns them to the hex they started from. Harpy hags attack with such violence their attacks cannot be countered.

Special ability[edit]

Both harpies and harpy hags have a special ability to strike and return, which means that they fly next to their target, attack and return to their original hex. Harpies also recieve retaliation before returning to the original hex, but Harpy Hags receive no enemy retaliation from their attack.

Dendroids have a special ability of binding, which works in an exceptional way to harpies when dendroids retaliate. After the retaliation, harpies return to their original hex as usual, and are bound after the return. This enables the dendroid stack to move or die without lapsing the entanglement causing the harpies to be bound down forever if not attacked or dispelled.
