From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Bambooligan is a new monster in the Dragon Quest series and it was introduced in Dragon Quest X.


Bambooligans are a mechanical type of monster. They are little and are covered in a green armor to make them resemble bamboo plants. In their head there is the core of the machine and it is protected with a green helm with a ventilation grill where it should be supposed to have a face. These monsters wear a cone-shaped green hat (probably also made of bamboo) that resembles to the one that rice farmers in Japan wore in the past. At their back they have equipped a bamboo pennant, which is taller than them, that is decorated with a blue sky pattern with some bamboo leaves at the sides. As their name suggests, bambooligans love to wield bamboo spears.
