The Living Statue (originally Stone Hulk, StoneMan / Stone Man in the GBC translations) is a recurring enemy in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest III, it is a stone statue reminiscent of a marble sculpture that was brought to life.

Characteristics

A Living Statue is a large, dynamically posed sculpture that can easily be passed off as a mere statue if not for its glowing eyes. Despite being endowed with life, Living Statues rarely move and actually appear to struggle when they do so, their movements often jerky, sudden, and barely different from their idle pose. This apparent difficulty is even reflected in their speech as they tend to get caught up momentarily mid-sentence, often at an awkward point in the middle of a word.

Difficulty in movement does not hamper a Living Statue's strength, however: their heavy bodies enable them to attack hard and stand up to a fair amount of punishment before they crumble.
