The nail blighter is a monster introduced in Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in the Temple Palace in the past, the Likeness of the Great Evil in the past, inside the Time Frame, the Wetlock region in the past, and the Mountaintop Tunnel in the past.
Nail blighters are beastly bipedal anthropomorphic reptilian or fish-like manic monsters with red, slimey spotted skin and preposterous purple fins on its back. True to their name, their most distinguish feature are the incredibly long and sharp nasty yellow nails on their hands, which they use to rip into foes and dish out high damage. The monsters bear some similarity to the cryptids known as Blemmyes, or headless men, since their facial features are located on their chests. They were believed to be inhabitants of the Nile region, which Al-Balad is based on. Their names are a pun based on the term "nail biter".
