From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Nutter is a monster that appears exclusively in Dragon Quest VII. It can be found in Grotta del Sigillo in both the past and present and the Faraday region in the past.


Nutters are small, naughty monkeys that swing in battle on the branches of battered old trees, covered in a thick white fur, with brown paws and feet and a dangerously disarmingly cute face that lures foes into thinking that they're no threat in battle. They hang from the limbs of these ancient trees using their long, pointed prehensile tails and, true to their name, attack by slinging smashing nuts at unsuspecting and unaware enemies. When encountered in the field, nutters show off by slinking around on their front paws, keeping their bodies suspended vertically to throw off potential foes even further. In the original English localization, they are known as TailApes despite clearly being monkeys, likely due to the character limit on monster names.
