From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Abominape (スノーエイプ Sunōeipu) is a monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest VIII.


An irritable simian whose pelt and skin have taken a similar coloration to its snowy environment. Unlike its rowdy comrades, the abominape is less close-minded and more willing to attack the whole party than singling out a member. Despite this, it's awfully absent-minded and will sometimes space out in the middle of combat.
