From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Grotwyrm is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is an undead dragon with a rotting body.


Macabre monstrous dragons that shamble into battle, ready to strike at their enemies, despite their walking corpses falling apart and their eyes slipping from their sockets. Their decaying teeth are still sturdy enough to dish out damage with sharp snaps of their jaws and the undead dragon's lungs are full of a chilling ice that they spew all over opponents in increasingly strong bursts.
