For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Prism peacock (Vocation).

The Prism Peacock is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the Dragon Quest Monsters series, it is a quadrupedal bird of various colors.


The prism peacock is a technicolor terror of miscellaneous avian features on a slightly humanoid body. It's exact capabilities vary between games, but it is always a fleet-footed enemy that attacks with intensely hot flames. Interestingly, the original design for the monster showed it as a true quadruped with shoulder parallel to it's hips: this depiction has been ditched for the modern, man-like posture that shows it with a distinct separation between it's upper and lower limbs.

Note: Despite having three talons firmly planted on the ground, the Prism Peacock is considered a Floating enemy and is thus vulnerable to Flying Knee and Wing-Clipper.
