Chaos dwarves are a type of corrupted and dangerous dwarves following Zamorak found in various locations, most notably the Wilderness. They attack with a steel warhammer. They hit fairly often, even through tough armour such as Torag's. They give Slayer experience if one's task is dwarves.

Although they have high hitpoints for their level, chaos dwarves are not a good monster to train on because of their accuracy. On occasion, they may drop a muddy key which will get you quite an amount of mid-level items if you manage to get to the chest. Both the dwarves in the Wilderness and Taverley Dungeon drop the Muddy Key. Range seems to work better than melee.

It is revealed in Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf that they are the result of experiments by The Red Axe in their attempt to conquer Keldagrim.

The physical form of the chaos dwarves are unlike any other dwarf in Gielinor. The Lores and Histories entry "The Coat Thief" describes the appearance of a chaos dwarf:

"He was like no dwarf I'd ever seen in Keldagrim. His skin was dark red and had a rough texture, and it seemed to glow from within like lava... Even unconscious, his face was locked in a grimace of rage. He smelled of sulphur and radiated unmistakable heat...

"...The heat was growing stronger. I stepped back, and Hilda did the same. The dwarf's skin glowed brighter and brighter red and then began to disintegrate, crumbling in on itself like wood curling up in a fire... In less than a minute he was gone, leaving only a few bones and some scorched armour fragments in a thinning cloud of black smoke..."
