Scissor beatle

From Dragon Quest Wiki

The Scissor Beatle is a recurring monster in the Dragon Quest series. Introduced in Dragon Quest IV, it is a cartoon-like stag beetle monster.

Characteristics[edit]

Scissor Beatles are somewhat small monsters with a pair of shearing mandibles, their namesake. Their head and body, alongside the mandibles, make up most of their form. The arms and legs of Scissor Beatles are diminutive by comparison and they appear to be wearing boots on their feet.

While among the ranks of Slimes in their initial appearance, Scissor Beatles have since proven to have strengths that shine better when positioned as a more advanced monster, though they tend to pick up some of the skills of their Bedbug and Fire beatle kin.
