Mandrake mangler

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Mandrake mangler is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest IX. It is a pink-scaled dragon soldier armed with a saber and shield. When it originally appeared, it was given the same name as the darker red Mandrake marauder, but in Japanese, it was a completely new and different monster.


Mandrake manglers are bipedal anthropomorphic dragon soldiers that are armed and ready for battle. Their scales are a pale shade of red. They have large pairs of wings on their backs with grey membranes, a long pair of horns, and scales running down the top of their heads to their tails, all in grey, as well. Their swords and shields are brass-colored, while their armor is colored ivory. In battle, they have a tendency to call for more of their kind as backup.
