Abyss diver

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Abyss diver is a large aquatic monster in the Dragon Quest series, similar to the mythological Leviathan. It is purple in color, has a long neck, and webbed feet. It is quite powerful when the player first meets it, and its breath attacks can devastate low level parties.

Originally the weaker predecessor of the Seasaur, the Abyss diver has since become the stronger pallet-swap as of VIII.

Description Devilishly devastating dinosaurs that cast Crackle and breathe fire, and cannot be bested with bog-standard blows.
Longed for loud colours after decades spent in the dim depths, and tried to jazz themselves up, but to underwhelming effect.
