This article is about the current version of DF.

Venom is a naturally-occurring poison that will cause a syndrome in certain creatures when certain conditions are met, typically when entering the blood via a serpent man or giant cave spider bite. It is produced by certain critters according to their raw file, and may be extracted and stored in vials. Currently, it is disputed whether or not venom can be administered, but it may still be purchased or sold.

Research has shown that in at least some circumstances, venom and other syndrome-inducing materials can be spattered or covered upon weapons and bolts, which may result in attacks inflicting the related syndromes. [1]

Some forgotten beasts and titans are generated with venom, which they can inject through bites or stingers, alternatively covering their bodies entirely or making their blood toxic.
