Bite bulb

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Bite bulb is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest XI.

It is a hovering slime shaped like a red tomato with leaves for arms, a flower sprouting out of its tip, and a lower body that resembles a bell pepper. Though not the first member of the slime family to exhibit botanical traits, the bite bulb and its kin surpass the Buddy slime and the Weedie by being true cross-bred cultivars instead of just slimes with foliage.

In-game description They're as red as ripe tomatoes, but no one's ever got close enough to take a bite and see if they taste like them. They spray out clouds of soporific spores so carelessly that they sometimes put themselves to sleep.
