The Anarchaeopteryx (formerly Fuga) is a monster introduced in Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in the Marsh Cave and the Roamers region in the past.

Characteristics[edit]

Anarchaeopteryxes are large, leaping, aggressive backwards bird monsters that have distinct dinosaurian features and a dippy way of barely hovering above in the air with their near useless vestigial wings, leaving their claws scrapping against the floor of the caves they usually lurk in. However, this featherbrained half-flight gives them extra force to put behind their punishing peck attacks with their massive bludgeoning beaks. They have a blue boisterous plumage and sharp yellow scales, constantly flapping wicked little wings, a long swinging scaly tail, and their bulky beaks are similar to that of a much more dangerous monster family, the dragons.

Etymology[edit]

The anarchaeopteryxes' name is a pun based on the word anarchy that's displayed in their movement and attack patterns, and the actual real world link discovered between dinosaurs and birds, the archeopteryx.

Etymology[edit]

Anarchaeopteryx is a combination of the the dinosaur Archaeopteryx and the word anarchy, which means chaos or disorder. Archaeopteryx is fittingly similar to the monster as it is a bird-like dinosaur with feathers whose discovery by archaeologists in 1861 helped provide a link between reptiles and modern birds.
