Pink pongo

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Pink pongo (マッスルウータン Massuruūtan) is a monster in the Dragon Quest series that was introduced in Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King.


Pernicious primates that possess a perplexing pink pelt color, the pink pongo makes up for this confounding evolutionary adaptation by combining speed and strength to become a force of nature.
