Monks of Zamorak worship the god of chaos, Zamorak. The monks have formed groups and worship together at altars scattered throughout RuneScape. They attack with melee and magic attacks. Unlike Saradomin monks, they do not heal players and do not have a "Talk-to" option. The only place that monks of Zamorak talk is in the Wilderness. Some monks are aggressive and attack when players approach them. They are able to use stat draining magic attacks. They are also always aggressive to players that attempt to take their wine of Zamorak in the Chaos Temple.

  • In RuneScape Classic, some monks of Zamorak wield a steel mace, and drop it when killed.
  • The level 22 Monks of Zamorak have a special close-ranged magic attack that can deal up to 80 life points. The level 17 monks have a similar attack that hits up to 60. The level 22 monks are easily distinguished from level 17 monks as their robes are scarlet and their feet are covered by long robes.
  • The temple of Paterdomus is an excellent place to train on monks as an altar is present. The church pews can be used as safespots when ranging.
  • During the Defender of Varrock quest, when the zombies attack the Varrock Palace, the imprisoned Monk of Zamorak can be shouting various phrases: "Kill those guards!" "Let me out! I'm a bad guy too!" "Someone want to get me out of here?" "So are any of you zombies gonna break me out?" "Hey! Zombies, I'm on your side." "Haha, mash those guards" "Let me out, I'll help with the invasion!" or "Oi, Mr. Zombie, Can you let me out?"
  • This "special close-ranged magic attack" or "magic" these Monks use is actually melee based.
  • Level 17 monks only have 100 life points which is the same as new players start out with, meaning their only combat skills may be a low attack and magic or at least 30 magic with no other levels.
  • In RuneScape Classic, there was a glitch where a Monk of Zamorak was stuck in Lumbridge for weeks, you could not talk or attack it.
  • The monks in the Captured Temple are one of the few foes to use the Evolution of Combat combat stance.
  • The chant of the monks in the Black Knights' Fortress is a reference to the Pie Jesu from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
