Living Statue (Recurring)

From Dragon Quest Wiki
For the miniboss in Dragon Quest V, see Living Statue.

The Living statue is a recurring enemy in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest III: The Seeds of Salvation, it is a stone figure reminiscent of a marble sculpture that was brought to life.

Characteristics[edit]

Stony faced, red-eyed statues that love to surprise adventurers by stomping furiously on the floor, causing crushing quakes that can deal damage to an entire party. Despite being endowed with life, Living Statues rarely move and actually appear to struggle when they do so, their movements often jerky, sudden, and barely different from their idle pose. This apparent difficulty is even reflected in their speech as they tend to get caught up momentarily mid-sentence, often at an awkward point in the middle of a word.

Difficulty in movement does not hamper a Living Statue's strength, however: their heavy bodies enable them to attack hard and stand up to a fair amount of punishment before they crumble.
