For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Gripevine (Class).
The Gripevine is a monster in the Dragon Quest series, and very often the most deadly representative of the Nature family. In earlier translations, it was known as Rosevine.
The gripevine is a large, carnivorous plant based on the infamous rafflesia flower of southeast Asia. Its body is a bulb-like flower with a long tongue and sharp teeth, supported by a tangle of leafy vines. It uses two longer thorn-covered vines to attack, along with ferociously fetid fragrances.
Rumor has it that when the gripevine reaches maturity, it will unfurl its bud and begin life anew as a Thornella.
