Cyclops

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Cyclops is a monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest II.

Characteristics[edit]

The gigantes' less popular dark blue cousin, the cyclops can't quite match up to its contemporary but is still strong in its own right. The cyclops's singular eye has a red iris, setting it apart from its lighter blue cousin, as well. Originally depicted as a weaponless dolt, this juggernaut brings more brawn than brains to the battlefield. The giants wear simple tunics made from roughspun brown cloth that only cover their right shoulders and a brown leather belt around their waists.

Etymology[edit]

Cyclopes are mythical creatures originating from Greek and Roman mythology. Three different varieties of cyclopes can be distinguished; Brontes, Steropes and Arges are featured in Hesiod's Theogeny, in Homer's Odyssey they are depicted as uncilivised shepherds, and lastly the builders who constructed the eponymous Cyclopean walls of Mycenae and Tiryns.
