Khalamari kid

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Khalamari kid is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VIII. It is the infant form of the giant Khalamari.

Characteristics[edit]

Khalamari kids are small squids with smiling faces. Their mantles and fins are pink while the rest of their body and tentacles are a light shade of yellow. They wield a conch shell in their tentacles like a club, but are more likely to spend their turns doodling in the sand instead of clobbering enemies with them. The cephalopods also have a tendency to be called away by their parents in the middle of battle, as well. They share a close relationship with King kelps, often being called by them to serve as the audience for their songs.
