From Dragon Quest Wiki

The grillerpiller is a monster introduced in Dragon Quest III. As its name suggests, it is a large, fire-breathing centipede.


Grillerpillars are enormous red/fuschia caterpillars with orange undersides and spots on the side of their bodies and green faces. They have six purple limbs and a purple mouth, as well as two green spots on the side of its head that look like eyes. Grillerpillars have a sharp stinger at the end of their tail, but their main form of offense is their ability to breathe fire at enemies. Like the other caterpillars in its family, it also attacks physically by rolling up into a ball and poking with their stingers.
