Magmen are monsters that appear to be moving mounds of molten magma. They specialise in fire magic.
They made their debut in Dragon Quest V: Hand of the Heavenly Bride.
Three Magmen are fought as a boss guarding the Circle of Fire. In the Super Famicom version each glob counts as a separate enemy, but from the PS2 remake onwards the encounter consists of a single group.
Magmen reprise their boss role in Mount Magmageddon.
