Mummy boy

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Mummy boy is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest II. The Mummy boy and the Mummy originally looked very similar until 1996, where the latter was coloured purple hence forth.


Mummy boys are undead animated through dark magic whose bodies are wrapped from head to toe in white bandages, both of their arms raised up. They have pitch-black skin underneath their bandages and solid yellow eyes. Originally, they were depicted as having blue skin beneath their bandages. They are able to twist their upper bodies in unnatural ways when attacking and in some games, are even capable of landing desperate attacks. Later games gave mummy boys the ability to land curses on their opponents either by sending out orbs of pure hatred or with their attacks.
