Pesky jester

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Pesky jester is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, first appearing in Dragon Quest VI. It is a monocular harlequin that wields a wicked pair of sais in battle.


Pesky jesters are a jovial jokesters that goes for the jugular with their sharp sai blades. Dressed in a slick sinister blue and yellow rubber outfit, a single eye peeps out from their jester's hat along with a sinister grin that never slips. So agile in battle that they can swiftly slice twice with their blades as they dive like a falcon.
