The Grimoire (formerly known as EvilBook) is a recurrent monster in the Dragon Quest series and it was introduced in Dragon Quest VII.


Grimoires are book-looking demon monsters whit strong magic powers. The incarnations of Dragon Quest VI have the appearance of a green book with their first pages and cover torn due to the age. In the cover a yellow eye can be found, and surrounding the eye there are black ritual marks. If you open these books you'll found a mouth with a pink tongue. In the incarnations of the Monsters subseries the decoration is more complex, the covers now have a red demonic eye on them surrounded by red markings that resemble bloody veins and two skeletons. If you open these books, you'll be attacked by a monster that is summoned by them, the power of the monster depends on the size of the book. The normal sized book is the Grimoire (あくまの書, Akuma no sho), one slot; the medium sized book is the Grand grimoire (だいあくまの書, Dai akuma no sho), two slots; and the big sized book is the Archfiend's grimoire (魔王の書, Maō no sho), three slots.
