|Dragon Quest Monster|
|First Appearance||Dragon Quest VI|
The Pudgedevil is a late-game monster that appears in Dragon Quest VI. It is notable for being the source of extra Duplic hats, and infamous for having an eye-wateringly low drop rate.
Potent pudgy spells caster that may look like blue buffons, dressed in an over sized yellow cape and with a permanent inane grin plastered across their faces, but that actually posses strong tactical skills and the ability to to unleash a blistering burst of ice against opponents. They can also use a strong magic barrier to help prevent spell damage and call on the help of and endless supply of healing slimes to help them in battle.
The Pudgedevil was originally stated to be a monster that naturally inhabited the Dread Realm in the SFC guidebook for VI, but with the release of the DS guide this has been changed to state that the devils are Mortamor's attempt at mass-cloning Murdaw, being his most competent servant. This new origin is further supported in the monster's DQMJ3 bestiary entry, which states the species was grown from the former's cells and granted further power through magical amplification.
