For the monster vocation in Dragon Quest VII, see Dingbat (vocation).

The Dingbat is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in Dragon Quest VII: Fragments of the Forgotten Past.


Dingbats are monstrous muscular, angry anthropomorphic bipedal red bird demons with a large pair of bat-like wings on its beastly back and long, curved horns on its head. They have beige-colored wrists and undersides, yellow, steel sharp, beaks for bashing at prey and a beautiful long blue mane of hair, with wicked black webbed wings to allow them to hover high above the battlefield. Their claws and talons have three incredibly sharp digits, perfect for diving down at foes in a flurry of feathers with their Harvest Moon attack. Dingbats are incredibly agile fighters, soaring into the air to attack enemies and kicking with their talons, but they also boast a fiery spell in battle, Frizzle, allowing them to sling a fireball right at any attackers. Despite being birdlike-appearance, they do not take extra damage from Wing-Clipper or Flying Knee.
