Night sneaker

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Night sneaker is a monster that was introduced in Dragon Quest VIII.


True to its name, the night sneaker is a nocturnal creature that only appears at night. This elusive behavior is reflected in its access to Bounce and comparatively high evasion rate, potentially making it a chore to dispose of. Unlike its fellow fuzzball friends, the night sneaker's boot has the curious property of being transparent, thus showing off its strange foot-like appendage.
