Dragon Quest VII
Gracos is possibly a more powerful form of a Merman, as he shares many of his characteristics with this monster, particularly the placement of his fins. Gracos differs from this common monster by means of his greater girth, thicker lips, wristbands and weapon: a pole-arm with a crescent-shaped blade on the end.
Having first appeared as a boss monster, Gracos typically fulfills that same role in his other appearances and is powerful as such. He possesses great physical might and is adept at using magic and abilities as well.
In Dragon Quest VI, Gracos maintains the seal on Sorceria and defeating him enables access to the city.

Gracos marks his first appearance as one of the four Dread Fiends that terrorize the world and must eventually be confronted by the party in order to progress the storyline.

Making his second appearance as a boss, Gracos is the one responsible for flooding Hamelia in the past and must be confronted in order to set things right.
Gracos is a tough fight. He can attack twice in one round and hit the party very hard. He is immune to Sap and has a high resistance to Surround. Finally, he has a very high resistance to ice spells and skills so these should be avoided completely.
There is a small grace as Jann joins this fight. Even still, Gracos shouldn't be taken lightly. The Shepherd's Barrier technique does wonders for this battle as well as Increase and Upper. Armor that protects against ice is a must. The Fighter's Wind Beast should be used regularly as well as the Shepherd's Stampede attack and the Hybrid skill Sword Dance.
Do not rely on Jann to heal the party. If you are in need of healing, have Maribel use the Bless Staff.
Appearing as a rank A member of the Demon family, Gracos also has a small role in the piracy side-quest of the game, being summoned as one of the many monsters the player must confront while tracking down Captain Crow. One possible synthesis for a Gracos is combining a Merman with an Archdemon.
