For the monster vocation in Dragon Quest VII, see Gripevine (vocation).


The Gripevine is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in the original Dragon Quest Monsters.

This giant man-eating flower is one of the deadliest representatives of the Nature family.

Characteristics[edit]

The Gripevine is a large, looming carnivorous plant with a look similar to the real world infamous rafflesia flower of southeast Asia. Its beautiful body has a blooming bulb-like flower with a long lurching tongue and sharp serrated teeth, supported by a treacherous tangle of leafy vicious vines. It uses the two longer thorn-covered vines to lash at enemies, along with ferociously fetid fragrances that send foes to Sleep or stick them with vile venom. In its original appearances, the Gripevine had a purple and magenta coloration, but it borrowed the Malign vine's green and red color scheme for several games. Occasionally, the Gripevine has shifted back to its original coloration for certain titles.

Rumor has it that when the Gripevine reaches maturity, it will unfurl its bud and begin life anew as a Thornella.
