Bad egg

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Bad egg is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest VII.


The bad egg is an unknown monstrous egg with an evil eye and a small, sneaky red-lipped smile peering through the crack in the white shell. It rolls into battle and is ready to hatch into all sorts of weird and wonderful strange species. It's impossible to tell which kind of monster it will actually be until it hatches, if it gets a chance to before the battle ends.
