Greasy palm

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Greasy palm is a slippery member of the Undead family, being the crude oil cousin of the Muddy hand.


Greasy palms are masses of oily sludge taken on the form of human hands, and inhabit the natural petroleum deposits from which they crawled. Their main strategy in battle is to lather foes in toxic globs, dealing Dark-element damage. True to real life, they are incredibly vulnerable to fire.
