Dragon Quest of the Stars[edit]


An embellishment of the basic "beakon" pun, referring to Belisha beacons - the illuminated orange globes at the top of the black-and-white striped poles marking zebra crossings in the United Kingdom. The Japanese name of the monster, "Akairai", is a reference to the Achaierai monster from the Dungeons & Dragons franchise.


All three Beakon types are exaggerated parodies of the Phorusrhacidae family of flightless birds. More commonly know as terror birds, these walking hatchets possessed enormous beaks and existed as apex predators in the plains of South America roughly 2 million years ago in the Cenozoic era.
