Buffalo wing

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Buffalo wing is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest IV.

Its name is a play on the food of the same name.


Buffalo wings are unusual bipedal hybrids between birds and bovines with midnight blue hides and dark yellow beaks. They have gained the ability to use magic, casting Sap to soften up enemies before goring them with their horns.
