From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Capsichum is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in Dragon Quest VIII. It is a violent vegetable that consists of an orange and green bell pepper stuck together on a skewer, seemingly jovial despite their impalement. Being native to the Farebury region, they are among the weakest monsters in the game.
