Giant moth

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Giant moth is an infrequently occurring insect in the series.

Characteristics[edit]

Among the most literally named monsters to date, it is an overgrown moth roughly the size of a man's torso that ditched it's pathetic proboscis for a set of terrifying teeth. The compound eyes have been exchanged for pupils as well, set inside purple sclera.
