Levers are basic objects that appear on occasion throughout DoomRL. By definition they are items, but are more akin to powerups than anything else: they can be destroyed by splash damage rather easily and tend to disappear on use. Levers are always associated with the & symbol.

In random levels, many different types of levers are created and are normally indistinguishable from one another. By investing in the Intuition trait, more information can be known about the lever before pulling it. The following is a list of all random levers and the information regarding them:
