Mega moai

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Mega moai is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VII. It is a giant moai head made from red volcanic rock.


Red raging rocks that run rambunctiously right into adventurers, attempt to crush them alive by hurling stony boulders, and can emit a terrifying eerie light from their piercing blue eyes. They are said to have been carved from volcanic rock by sorcerers. When the mega moais returned in X, they also gained the ability to breathe out fierce flames from their mouths.

Description Their igneous bodies are helluva hard, but their HP's not too hot. If one musters its strength, batter it before it blasts you.

They used to be full statues, but they were blasted to bits when the Magmaroo erupted, and only their heads were left.
