|Dragon Quest monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First appearance||Dragon Quest VII|
Slimey, slippery hard shelled sea snails that stick themselves to the side of seafaring ships for some unknown reason, surprising those fresh out on the ocean by attacking with its freakish expanding mollusk mouth. Green skinned and under the protection of a humongous dual horned shell, the deathcargot rolls at enemies spike first in an attempt to crush them, even being able to hide in the horned shell to defend from adventurers' attacks. Surprisingly, they can also sling a magical shard of ice with the Crack spell.
The name originates from escargot, a popular dish in France and Spain consisting of cooked snail meat.
