From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Frogman is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VIII. It is a frog monster that unleashes powerful ice attacks on enemies when its demonic face is turned to the party.


Frogmen can be seen as albino Frogfaces, having white skin and yellowish-orange spots all over its body as opposed to the magenta and blue of the lesser monster. A far greater threat than the Frogface, and not just because of being statistically stronger, Frogmen can cast Crackle and breathe out ice-cold blasts when their backs are faced in battle. The same strategy that works against Frogfaces can also work on these monsters too, however, and the player will have access to Sleep-inducing moves and instant-death spells to make matters faster. Unlike normal attacks, Whack will not turn the monster over even if the spell fails. Oddly enough, the frogman and its fellow amphibians are considered part of the Bug family.
