Bag o' laughs

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Bag o' laughs is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest III.

It is a mischievous monster with the appearance of a bag with a drawstring.

Characteristics[edit]

The standard Bag o' laughs appears as a cartoonish, blue burlap bag with a face that consists of two eyes, rosy cheeks, and a fanged mouth with tongue lolling out.

Bag o' laughs are just as annoying as their beige brethren, casting debilitating magic instead of directly attacking and thus are most dangerous when encountered along with more ferocious monsters that take advantage of their adventurer enfeebling.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

Bags o' laughs appeared from the beginning of the game. They have a variety of debilitating spells at their disposal, including Deceleratle, Dazzle, and Fizzle, but can also waste their turn in battle by smirking. Starting with Version 1.2 of the game, they gained a rarefied version in the form of the Bag o' sweets.
