From Dragon Quest Wiki

The gorerilla is a monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.

A Gorerilla by the name of Klub kong appears as an infamous monster.


The gorerilla is an easily agitated ape who possesses a rudimentary understanding of tool usage akin to real-life gorillas. Contrary to its namesake, the gorerilla is rather diminutive and by no means great in size. However, it makes up for its short stature in a surplus supply of strength and is capable of dealing devastating blows.
