For the monster class in Dragon Quest VII, see Walking corpse (Class).

The Walking corpse (formerly Hork) is a monster in the Dragon Quest series, introduced in Dragon Quest II.


The walking corpse is a reanimated corpse, part of the Zombie family. They have wild, unkempt grey hair, rotting clothes, and have a trail of drool from their open mouths. Their right eyes are closed, while the left is bulging slightly. The walking corpses also have their hands up in a stereotypical zombie pose. It is usually the first undead monster fought in the game. In some games, the walking corpse has a poison attack, poisoning one party member when it hits.

Description These dogged dead bodies fixate on a foe and won't leave them alone. They may be brittle, but they're tough too.

They live by the saying 'tHe ROttEnEr tHE BeTeERer', and ensure that any midway manky remains are made fully foul.

Dragon Quest Monsters[edit]

Horks are members of the Zombie family and can be encountered in the Bewilder and Peace Traveler's Gates. They can also be bred by having another Hork as the pedigree and any other member of the Zombie family as the mate. Horks learn Lush Licks, Poison Gas, and Eerie Light naturally.
