Mandrake marauders are bipedal anthropomorphic dragon warriors with scales of a dark red hue, wielding a golden cutlass and shield and wearing golden armor. On its back, it has a pair of large wings with dark grey membranes. It has a pair of pair purple horns on top of its head and darker purple scales starting from the top of its head to the end of its tail. The straps on its headgear, shield, and breastplate are green. It is stronger than the Mandrake major, but weaker than the Mandrake marshal. In battle, it is capable of performing violent slashing attacks with its sword and can call for more of its companions as backup. The marauders have yet to make a reappearance in the main series, but they have been a regular presence in spinoff games.
When Dragon Quest IX was first released in English, the Mandrake mangler was originally given the name Mandrake marauder as well, but it was a new and different monster in Japanese.
