NPC ID? (edit)

Muncher is Death's pet skeleton hellhound found sleeping within his office. He also appeared in Death's mansion during the 2014 and 2015 Halloween events.

In the 2014 Halloween event, it was revealed that he ate the postman and made a complete mess of Death's house, which forced Death to hire the player to clean up the place before his new servant arrived, as he didn't wish to seem completely incapable of looking after himself.

A player dies as he teases Muncher during the 2014 Halloween event.

During the event, he could be interacted with in a number of ways, including stroking him, trying to entertain him, and blowing a raspberry at him. If a raspberry was blown at him, he could kill a player instantly, although they would respawn in the mansion with all their items.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • He previously used the same model as the skeleton hellhounds from In Search of the Myreque.
  • When he appeared in the 2014 and 2015 Halloween events, he was named Growler instead of Muncher. This is because the 2014 event was based on an unfinished version of the original 2007 event, which used Growler as his name before being changed to Muncher in the final release (presumably to avoid confusion with Commander Zilyana's bodyguard, as the God Wars Dungeon was in development at the same time). This change was not applied when the event was released in Old School, and remained when Muncher reappeared in 2015. When he was brought back alongside Death's Office, he was finally renamed Muncher.
