From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Cannibelle is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest IX. It is a beautiful demoness that feeds on souls.


Cannibelles are female demons with beautiful, but monstrous appearances. They have indigo-coloured skin, solid yellow eyes, and pointed ears. Their scraggly blonde hair reaches down to the ground. They have a large pair of demonic wings on their backs with orange membrane and a long tail. The demons wear revealing, strapless white dresses with red borders, with the dress's train blending into a set of grasping grey claws that move about on the ground. Around their waists, they wear purple sashes that reach down to their feet. They also wear white opera gloves, circlets, and chokers all decorated with red gemstones. In their left hands, cannibelles carry wicked sharp daggers.

According to their bestiary description, the cannibelles were formerly scorned women who sold their souls to evil in order to become demons. In battle, they are capable of casting powerful ice magic and can paralyse foes with their wicked gaze.

  • During Quest #176: Well Forgetful, the player must make cannibelles enraged 10 times and then defeat them in order to fill a rankened phial with cannibelle rage. This must be done in separate battles, as the player will only receive credit once even if a cannibelle becomes enraged more than once in a single battle.


  • The monster's Japanese name Hell Venus (ヘルヴィーナス, Heru Bīnasu) may be a reference to Venus, the Roman goddess of love and beauty and the counterpart to the Greek Aphrodite.
