The Peeper is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest IV.


Peepers are unusual bipedal creatures with features similar to that of a large flightless bird. They have a long pair of legs that allows them to run quickly, a tiny pair of arms, and their head consists of their large eyeball surrounded by three pairs of thin frills.
