From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Demonspawn is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest IV.

It is a collection of demonic spirits in a single grotesque form.


Demonspawns are light purple spirits made up of five hideous faces bundled together, all facing a different direction. Each of the faces has evil-looking, solid yellow eyes and their mouths are full of sharp fangs that they use to bite with. The wraiths are capable of debilitating unfortunate adventurers in many different ways from sending them to sleep, paralyzing them with their sharp fangs, sealing away their magic, and shouting suddenly to shock them into inaction. They can also call more of their kind to aid them in battle. After the Demonspawn's original appearance, it was essentially replaced by the Soulspawn and would not make another appearance for another 30 years until Rivals Ace.
