|Dragon Quest Monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First Appearance||Dragon Quest V|
Great sabrecubs have many of the defining characteristics of their mature alternates, such as spotted fur and and a fiery red mane running from head to back. Other than their lacking stature, the only thing missing from the cubs that the adults have are their developed, saber-like fangs.
The first appearance of the great sabrecub, and also the first monster the player befriends in the game. Oddly, it is no longer a random encounter monster in the remakes, being replaced by the Jailcat since the Nintendo DS Version, though the player still befriends a great sabrecub. This replacement may have been performed to make its acceptance into the party more convincing, as many NPCs only regard it as a 'strange cat', though a few recognize what it is and what it will eventually become.
