The Raving Lunatick is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in the original Dragon Quest. It is a Lunatick with a significantly more garish color scheme that has gained spellcasting abilities.
Raving lunaticks are unusual nightmarish creatures whose main body consists of a purple body protected by a wine-red carapace with a pair of blue antennae on top, multiple blue tentacles, and a longer pair of green tentacles. Its most striking feature is its singular eye which is always turned to face the player. They are able to float in midair by moving their tentacles as though swimming. The "tick" in its name implies the monster is an insect or arthropod of some sort, although in some games they are classified as demons due to their evil origins.
