Lunatick queen

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Lunatick queen is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest X. It is a more powerful variant of the Lunaticks that specializes in inflicting paralysis.


Lunatick queens are bizarre floating monsters whose bodies are made up of various pinkish-purple tentacles attached to a yellow carapace, a longer set of blue tentacles trailing trailing behind, a long pair of antennae, and the singular green eye characteristic of its species. They possess the power of lightning and are capable of paralyzing anyone who makes eye contact with her. According to her bestiary description in X, she protects her nest of Lunaticks, but has a disdain for Raving lunaticks, who were raised on a diet of darkness. Due to the "tick" in their name, the lunatick queens are considered part of the Bug family, but in many spinoff games they are considered demons due to their otherworldly and nightmarish characteristics.


Dragon Quest X[edit]

Lunatick queens began appearing in the game starting with Version 1.1. They can attack with an electric shock that can paralyze enemies surrounding them, Paralaser, and Smirk that can also inflict paralysis to a single character.

Dragon Quest Tact[edit]

Lunatick queen appears as an A-rank monster of the Demon family as part of the limited Dragon Quest X event alongside Nelgel on his banner.
