The Quayhorse is a recurrent monster in the Dragon Quest series and it was introduced in Dragon Quest VII.
Quayhorses are big sinister seahorse-like monsters with orange scaly skin and a pair of gloved arms that allow them to hold pokey tridents. These monsters are seen wearing stylish Roman-looking armour, with the top part a bronze chest piece with gleaming golden details, and the bottom part is a white skirt that flows in the sea tides, held to the Quayhorse's body by a a sleek black belt made of a particularly tough sea weed. These strange ocean defenders wield a solid bronze shield and a glorious golden ended trident, which they use to torment ocean invaders, along with being able to spew Sweet Breath as a way of subduing adventurers, leaving them open to more attacks. They're even able to exude an icy Cool Breath across a wide area, crushing enemies with cold hard damage.
