Demon cloud

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Demon cloud is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest X. It is a stronger variant of the Cumaulus with powers over darkness.


Demon clouds are glowing purple clouds with sinister human-like faces, capable of floating about in midair. Its puffy features make the cloud look like it has chubby cheeks and its eyes are yellow with small black pupils. The clouds can breathe out pitch-black flames of darkness or mist to curse their enemies or and can stop adventurers dead in their tracks by casting Thwack. They can also hide their bodies with mist as a defensive mechanism to protect themselves from physical attacks.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Demon clouds debuted in Version 1.0 of the game, being stronger than the rest of their cloud compatriots at that time. Their abilities include Dark Breath and Cursed Mist, as well as being able to shroud themselves in mist to boost their evasion, and they can cast Thwack.
