The Hybird is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first introduced in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride. Its name is a pun on the word "hybrid".


The hybird is a large bird with beautiful, multicolored plumage. Most of its body is green with a long green tail and green at its wingtips. It has purple feathers on its wings and head that blend into gold, as well as a golden beak and talons. It is capable of breathing extremely hot fire breath and controlling powerful fire magic. In later games, the hybird also gained the ability to breathe out bright light breath and casting dark magic, hence the monster's name. Its Japanese name references purgatory, a place or condition in the afterlife between heaven and hell, where souls are said to suffer. This is reflected in its bestiary description for XI.
