From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Escudogre is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is a brawny, pink-skinned monster that wields one half of a mighty shield in each hand.


Escudogres are large, lumbering, red or light-pink skinned muscular demons, carrying two halves of an immense golden shield in their humongous hands. They wear odd orange loincloths and a leather belt around their waist and a gleaming golden skull cap, topped with a spike, on their horrid heads. They appear to be aged, as they have white beards, and they have two spikes on their large backs. The two halves of the shields they carry can be put together to form an enormous and stupendous shield, practically as tall as they are, with a demonic blue-green face on it. The shields of escudogres are superb for defending against enemy attacks and protecting their weaker allies, as well as offense, either by bashing foes with them or exhaling a chilly breath from the demon on their shields. In Dragon Quest X, the monsters belong to the Humanoid family, but they have been part of the Material family in the Monsters series of games due to their shields.
