|Dragon Quest monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First appearance||Dragon Quest X|
Bambooligans are a mechanical type of monster. They are little and are covered in a green armor to make them resemble bamboo plants. In their head there is the core of the machine and it is protected with a green helm with a ventilation grill where it should be supposed to have a face. These monsters wear a cone-shaped green hat (probably also made of bamboo) that resembles to the one that rice farmers in Japan wore in the past. At their back they have equipped a bamboo pennant, which is taller than them, that is decorated with a blue sky pattern with some bamboo leaves at the sides. As their name suggests, bambooligans love to wield bamboo spears.
The Bambooligan can be found inside of Tickington, in Altar of the Forgotten Past: Rainbow Mines.
