From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Discombombulator is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII.

It is a bizarre reddish-pink balloon monster that can sacrifice itself to revive its fellow monsters.


Powerful pink puffballs that float into battle with a menacing pout on their faces, ready to strike with fearsome skills, including the Fuddle Dance that confuses even the list experienced of adventurers, turning them against friends as much as foes. Their Kerplunk Dance sacrifices themselves for a chance at reviving all fallen allies. In many games in the Dragon Quest Monsters series, the discombombulators have been part of the Undead family perhaps due to their ghostly appearance.

Dragon Quest X[edit]

In its reappearance, the discombombulator retained its ability to use its dances and cast Magic Barrier, as well as gaining the ability to cast Frizzle and spit out bombs at its enemies that explode after a short amount of time has passed. In this game, they belong to the Elemental family.
