|First appearance||Dragon Quest VI|
The Budding Sorcerer is a enemy in Dragon Quest VI. Based on the Green Man of Celtic myth, it is a troublesome tree troll that likes to send players to slumberland. A large pink flower is in full bloom atop their head and they wizened, branch-like limbs along with twigs jutting from their backs. They also carry a supply of medicinal herbs in their robes to munch on when the time is right.
