In KoL, banishing a monster removes it from the possible encounters in any zone for a certain number of Adventures. Almost all banishers that cost a turn will run out of their effect 1 turn earlier, because the adventure itself took a turn.

Notes

  • Banishing a monster prevents it from appearing in any zone that it would appear in.
    • For example, banishing an A.M.C. gremlin will remove it from all four zones that it could appear in.
  • Banishing all possible monsters from a zone results in all of the monsters returning, and will also prevent further other banishes from removing monsters from that zone until at least one of the initial banishes expire.
    • "Unbanishing" a monster by using that same banisher on a different monster in a different zone will cause that monster to return as normal, and the other banishes in that zone will reapply and remove them.
    • For example, using Snokebomb (30 turns) on the VYKEA viking (male) and human musk (until rollover) on the VYKEA viking (female) will cause the following things to occur:
      • Both monsters will stay in the zone, and they will also ignore any further attempts to be banished.
      • After 30 adventures, Snokebomb will expire and the Viking male will return to the zone, while the Viking female will remain banished.
      • If human musk is used on a different monster, such as by using it on a crate, the Viking female will return to the zone because its banish has been lifted, and the Viking male will remain banished until Snokebomb's 30 adventure duration expires.
  • Banishing all normal monsters in a zone with conditional monsters in it will instead yield a tumbleweed. You cannot banish the two normal zombies from The Defiled Alcove to force the initiative-dependent modern zmobies.
  • Banishing a monster with multiple naturally occurring copies (e.g. there are 2 Astronomers in the Hole in the Sky), will also banish the second copy.
    • However, if a monster receives additional copies such as from Transcendent Olfaction (+3 copies), the additional copies will not be banished. The "native" copy of the monster will be banished, but the 3 bonus copies are still in the zone; so instead of being reduced from 4 copies to 0, banishing an Olfacted monster will reduce it from 4 copies to 3.
    • In this example, using an additional banish will not reduce copies from 3 to 2; rather it will remain at 3 because banishes remove native copies, hence why they apply against the two astronomers but not Olfacted monsters.
    • This is also why banishing a monster with the same phylum that the Red-Nosed Snapper is tracking will fail to remove all copies of that monster.
    • (See the Adventure Queue process for more details.)
  • There are multiple zones that are banish-proof; either no sources of banishes will work at all, or only special mechanics will affect the appearance of monsters in the zone.
  • Entire types of monsters in Dreadsylvania can be banished as a result of special non-combats; see Advanced Dreadsylvania Mechanics for details.
