The corpsickle, formerly known as poison zombie, is a monster introduced in Dragon Quest VI and is also a boss in that game.
Corpsickles are similar to the walking corpses, however they wear a different set of clothes made up of dark purple skin, blond hair, a black t-shirt, a mud green tunic and some red pants and wield much more deadly skills. They let loose a vile venomous vapor to envelope foes in poison and lunge at enemies causing poison to seep in through their very fingers. Oddly for the undead, they cast a healing spell that helps cure and hurt the party dishes out; along with high health this makes these corpses hard to bury.
Three Corpsickles are encountered during a special event in Moonmirror Tower in Dragon Quest VI. They mimic the party's movements behind a false mirror, attempting to fool the party into thinking the tower is a dead end. Upon close examination, the Corpsickles give up the facade and attack.
