Gripevine

From Dragon Quest Wiki
For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Gripevine (Class).

The Gripevine is a monster in the Dragon Quest series, and very often the most deadly representative of the Nature family. In earlier translations, it was known as Rosevine.

Description[edit]

The gripevine is a large, looming carnivorous plant with a look similar to the real world infamous rafflesia flower of southeast Asia. Its beautiful body has a blooming bulb-like flower with a long lurching tongue and sharp serated teeth, supported by a treacherous tangle of leafy vicious vines. It uses the two longer thorn-covered vines to lash at enemies, along with ferociously fetid fragrances that send foes to sleep or stick them with vile venom.

Rumor has it that when the gripevine reaches maturity, it will unfurl its bud and begin life anew as a Thornella.
