Chimaera

For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Chimaera (Vocation).

The Chimaera is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in the original game, it is a monster with the body of a serpent and the wings and head of a bird.

Characteristics[edit]

The standard chimaera has what appears to be a vulture's head with a ring of downy feathers around its neck. Its body is serpentine but also somewhat bloated, making it look more grub-like than snake-like. Its wings are feathered and constantly beat to keep the creature airborne.

Having appeared many times throughout the series, chimaeras have proven themselves to be formidable creatures, often having great potential for strength, magic, and natural skills such as breathing fire and ice. They can be terrible creatures to face in battle and terrific allies to have at one's side.
