Capsichum

From Dragon Quest Wiki
(Redirected from Paprikan)

A Capsichum is a violent vegetable introduced in Dragon Quest VIII. It consists of an orange and green bell pepper stuck together on a skewer, seemingly jovial despite their impalement. Being native to the Farebury region, they are among the weakest monsters in the game.

If one looks closely at either pepper pair, you can see the one on the right has buckteeth and the one on the left has stubby fangs.
