Caper tiger

From Dragon Quest Wiki

A caper tiger (originally WarTiger) is a monster found exclusively in Dragon Quest VII.


Caper tigers are humongous half-man, half-beasts that appear to be wearing the pelts of tigers over their bodies as a beastly disguise, designed to scare off all but the bravest of adversaries. They have painted red, demonic-looking faces with mouths filled with sheer sharpened fangs for sinking into attackers. The tigers attack with their sharp slashing claws and they've learned how to belch fire in order to flambe foes. They've also learnt a little magic; just enough to cast Heal to cure their unlickable wounds.

The caper tiger is physically identical to the earlier-appearing Weartiger. Given that the caper tiger's original Japanese name is an approximation of "weretiger" (the original localization name for the weartiger), it is possible that the caper tiger was originally meant to be the original weartiger but with a new name.
