Merking

From Dragon Quest Wiki

Characteristics[edit]

These great, grumpy fish-folk lurk in the forgotten and gloomy caves of the great sea, waiting to punish all people that dare to intrude their isolated deep domains. With a huge golden frills on their backs and bright blue scales, they can be a frightful sight to behold, especially as they're armed with unimaginably huge bladed staves for smacking and smashing uninvited guests. Capable of casting crushing ice magic with Crackle, damaging a full party with frost, as well preventing all incoming spells being cast with the threatening Fizzle spell. They've even been known for spew forth a vile venomous vapor that can envenom their enemies.
