Plated goretoise

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Plated goretoise is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series and was introduced in Dragon Quest VI.


Plated goretoises are big tortoise-like monsters with pale blue and black scaly skin and covered with armour pieces. The main part of the armour is the navy blue and silver tortoise shell which has holes where metallic spikes can be summoned to harm the enemies that dare touching the shell. The armour remnant is the helmet that these tortoises are wearing on their head, which is also navy blue and silver. In battle they boast the ability to cast Bounce on any ally and are even able to block an entire attack on another monster with their massive armoured tails. Their Defence is so high that damaging them is a Herculean task; spells will strike them down, but only after Bounce has been dashed. Although built with solid battle tatics, this tortoise sometimes need time to think things over, spending an entire turn staring into space.
