Gold lion

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Gold lion is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest X. It is a variant of the Hellion that is made of solid gold.


Gold lions are ferocious felines with four arms whose bodies are completely composed of gold, giving them the appearance of a statue come to life. The lower half of its body is identical to that of a real life lion, but its upper body is similar to that of a humanoid and it utilizes its many arms in vicious swiping attacks. In Tact, the lions also gained the ability to emit surges of lightning from their maws with their fearsome roars. Despite their aurous appearance, the felines have more in common with their flesh-and-blood cousins than other golden monsters.
