Mad moai

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Mad moai is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is a material monster resembling a large, floating head similar to those of the species namesake, the Moai of Easter Island.


Menacing massive heads that hover above the ground, just waiting for the right moment the mash adventurers with their awesomely big bulk. Their solid stone skin makes them hard to hurt and even worse, their ability to fire off blindingly bright flashes of light makes foes easily miss their attacks. They also love to chuck clusters of gravel rocks at large groups of opponents.
