The Archdemon, formerly known as Bullwong, Winged Demon and ArcDemon; is a recurrent monster in the Dragon Quest series and was introduced in Dragon Quest II.

Characteristics[edit]

Equipped with almost everything you can think of on a stereotypical demon bears wings, horns, a spiked tail, and a pitchfork. It wears a pair of green gloves and boots. With stats to match its bulky purple body, these monsters are usually a force to be reckoned with; capable of dealing heavy physical hits, but also casting advanced offensive magics to destroy its opponents.
