The Bear is a playable character in Dicey Dungeons, first appearing in v0.9. Unlike other characters, the Bear cannot be chosen as a starting character, and is unlocked instead by using Bear Potion, a move that can be stolen from an Alchemist with a Thief. Once used, the player remains as Bear for the remainder of the run.

The Bear's Limit Break is Bear Smash, which deals 10 damage to the enemy.

Available Items

The Bear can only find new items in chests and through leveling up. Shops and trading posts will not give any equipment to the Bear, but Ned will still upgrade bear equipment.

Initial Equipment

When you transform, you'll always have these weapons:

On reaching Level 3, you can get a new piece of equipment or 6 extra health. The equipment offered is randomized between these two:

If you've transformed while already at level 3 or higher, one of these pieces of equipment is automatically given to you.

Floor chests are redistributed after you transform into a bear. Only one chest will appear on each floor after the floor you've transformed on, and all chests are changed to contain random bear items:


  • If you transform at level 5 or above (which is rare unless you intentionally bring the Bear Potion up that far by stealing it) you will get 10 extra health (in addition to the 12 gained from Bear Potion) as well as max health when you transform.
  • If the boss of the episode was Drake, the boss is automatically changed to Buster instead. Internally, Bear Maul automatically removes the Vampire status, but the encounter is prevented anyway.
