The Bird of terrordise (originally HellHawk) is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past, it is a fiery red variant of the Prism peacock.
Like their prism peacock birdy brethren, birds of terrordise sport humanoid bodies and hellish horns along with their indicated avian qualities, but are of a raging red-hot coloring as opposed to the prism peacocks' motley plumage.

Birds of terrordise (then HellHawk) make their first appearance, though it is not until around the end that they appear. They are incredibly powerful, boasting high stats and the most lethal of the fire breath attacks. The area accessible by use of the fire crest inside Orgodemir's castle houses birds of terrordise, and they are arguably one of the most powerful monsters faced in that dungeon.
Grotto-only beasts that rear their flame-shaded heads in blazing grottoes.
