Very rarely, Necrotaurs have been trained as guard dogs. While the Dark Master lived in Castle Borgov she had several Necrotaurs guarding the castle gate at night. Ad Avis used these same Necrotaurs to capture the Prince of Shapeir. The Dark Master also kept one that she called Cuddles as a pet.
- "These fierce monsters look like a cross between a Rottweiler and a bear that has been dead for a very long while. The nasty temper, razor-sharp claws, and huge fangs make these good monsters to avoid. Despite their appearance, Necrotaurs are not actually Undead creatures. They are alive and vicious." (Excerpt from the QfG4 Manual)
Necrotaurs are a randomly encountered monster in Quest for Glory IV: Shadows of Darkness.
