Grotty hand

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Grotty hands are a venomous variant of the Muddy hand, found festering in fetid bogs.


Grotty hands are easily the most vile members of the Undead family, being nothing more than clump of putrefying matter. Nearly all of their attacks have a chance to Poison their unlucky target, and worse yet is that they favor force-feeding their own gunk to their victims.
