Hell niño

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Hell niños are recurring enemies in the Dragon Quest series, being Cumauluses that have broiled in tropical skies and mastered fire breath.


Looking like little more than a pair of fiendish eyes poking through a red cloud of molten dust and debris, these floating fiery foes fly about the field slinging Sizz spells and belching fire breath across the battlefield.
