|Dragon Quest monster|
Art by Akira Toriyama
|First appearance||Dragon Quest VI|
Sea dwelling snakes with a slick purple, red, and yellow pattern that makes them an obvious and frightening sight when they slither into battle. They bathe the area with a Burning Breath that has a chance to hold all foes in a perturbing paralysis. Even their fangs are filled with a poison that can leave adventurers unable to perform a simple action, leaving the Sail serpant free to slap and swipe at them with it's wild and wicked tail.
The snakes originally appeared in a variety of dungeons, but have recently been fixed to the open seas and a few select terrestrial areas to better match their Japanese name.

Chose 'sail serpent' because they thought it was cool, but now they worry that it makes a mockery of their massive ears.
