What monsters are unaffected by "kill monsters" CCMD?

I noticed that on some maps in Hexen some monsters are unaffected by this command. Could someone tell me, please, how it is achieved and what for?

Are you sure that the monsters are unaffected? Hexen has several maps with scripts that re-stock the map by spawning new monsters.

Yes, quite sure. Actually, I now even know why they are. The first time I looked at them I missed that they have DORMANT flag — even though I examined them with "info" CCMD, I somehow overlooked it. Now I took a look at them again and noticed it. Then that they are unaffected makes sense, since dormant actors don't take damage, and "kill" CCMD just deals a ton of damage.

Yeah, I actually just had that thought myself. The dormant flag does indeed prevent "kill monsters" affecting them.
