From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Cruelcumber is a recurring monster that made its debut in Dragon Quest IX.


The Cruelcumber and their cousins are tribal looking vegetables with deranged smiles, their tongues flailing about as they fight. Interestingly, a bit of dishwater blonde hair extends from the tip of their stem, giving them a look reminiscent of the Chonmage, a traditional Japanese topknot hairstyle.
