The Scare root is a recurrent monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest VI. In the Japanese version of Dragon Quest Monsters, the enemy HerbMan shares the same name as them (マンドラゴラ Mandoragora), but they otherwise appear to be unrelated.
Scare roots are plant-like monsters, specifically the taproots of carrots. Their bodies are brown except the budding stalk that contains the eye, which is fuchsia. Their arms and legs are made of some lesser roots and tendrils, as is common among plant monsters, and they sport some stubby incisors in their silly grins.
They often dance in a devious, catchy kind of way that gets their enemies jiving along with them, leaving them vulnerable to being slapped as they swing.
