The hacksaurus (originally BattleRex / Battle Rex) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest VI, it is a bipedal dragon wielding a large axe.


Hacksauruses are dragons with a build similar to that of a predatory dinosaur, especially a tyrannosaurus rex as indicated by their original localization, battle rex. They are green in color with a yellow underbelly and carry large axes in their small arms.

As dragons, hacksauruses are naturally powerful and especially dangerous due to their axe-wielding. They can also breathe fire.

Description Giant axe-toting dragons. Fond of using their sorching flame-breath to roast hapless travellers.

While normal hacksauruses won't be encountered until the player reaches the Royal Hunting Grounds, it is possible to run into a special roaming one near Farebury at the very start of the game. It is ill-advised to fight this hacksaurus until much later on since it can easily wipe out a low-level party using its fire breath and falcon slash techniques, though having a monster team will enable one to recruit the powerful monster after defeating it.
