For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Walking corpse (Vocation).

The Walking corpse is a monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in Dragon Quest II.

Description

The walking corpse is a reanimated corpse, part of the Zombie family. They have wild, unkempt grey hair, rotting clothes, and have a trail of drool from their open mouths. Their right eyes are closed, while the left is bulging slightly. The walking corpses also have their hands up in a stereotypical zombie pose. It is usually the first undead monster fought in the game. In some games, the walking corpse has a poison attack, poisoning one party member when it hits.

Typically, the walking corpse will high much higher HP than the other monsters in it's area but also paltry defence. This is a reference to how difficult it is to incapacitate a zombie in horror fiction, despite the body being as soft and vulnerable as rotting flesh can be.

Horks are members of the Zombie family and can be encountered in the Bewilder and Peace Traveler's Gates. They can also be bred by having another Hork as the pedigree and any other member of the Zombie family as the mate. Horks learn Lush Licks, Poison Gas, and Eerie Light naturally.
